• WWE vs. AEW Is Happening Again Tonight
Last week, WWE SmackDown and AEW Rampage went head-to-head for 30 minutes, and it’s going to happen again tonight.
All Elite Wrestling will air a live episode of Dynamite at 8 PM EST tonight on TNT, while FOX will air an encore for last night’s SmackDown at the same time, which will feature a special look at Crown Jewel (because there is no MLB Playoff game tonight).
Viewership for this repeat episode of SmackDown will obviously be way less than that of the live episode, but this is being done to try to take viewers away from Dynamite, which will already suffer in viewership due to being on Saturday instead of its usual Wednesday spot.
Below is the match-card for tonight’s AEW Dynamite:
– Cody Rhodes vs. Malakai Black III
– AEW World Title Eliminator Tournament: Bryan Danielson vs. Dustin Rhodes
– AEW World Title Eliminator Tournament: Lance Archer vs. Eddie Kingston
– TBS Championship Tournament: Ruby Soho vs. Penelope Ford
– Jungle Boy vs. Brandon Cutler
