AEW Dynamite Preview, August 5: Jon Moxley Defends Against Darby Allin, 12-Man Tag Team Action

AEW World Championship | Jon Moxley (c) vs. Darby Allin

In last week’s Tornado Tag Team Match, Darby Allin pinned Ricky Starks to clinch the victory for himself and Jon Moxley. The celebration didn’t last long as Allin quickly challenged Moxley for the AEW World Championship.

Tonight, The Daredevil will get a piece of The Death Rider as both men wage war for the AEW World Title. Can Allin accomplish the unthinkable tonight? Or will it be Moxley who goes on to defend the gold against MJF at ALL OUT?

12-Man Tag | FTR & The Elite vs. The Dark Order

After last week’s wholesome chaos, the babyfaces and heels will collide in a highly combustible matchup as FTR and The Elite (Hangman Page, Kenny Omega, Matt Jackson, & Nick Jackson) join forces to battle The Dark Order (Mr. Brodie Lee, Colt Cabana, Evil Uno, Stu Grayson, Five, & Nine) in a 12-Man Tag Team showdown tonight.

The Great Debate | Orange Cassidy and Chris Jericho w/ Mystery Moderator

Just a week ahead of their rematch on August 12th, Chris Jericho and Orange Cassidy will partake in a debate on Dynamite. The Great Debate will be moderated by a special guest and it remains to be seen who that special, unannounced individual turns out to be.

To date, Cassidy has kept his words at a minimum and this could make The Great Debate all the more interesting!

Cody & Matt Cardona w/ Arn Anderson vs. The Dark Order (Jon Silver & Alex Reynolds)

Last week, Matt Cardona rescued TNT Champion Cody and Arn Anderson from The Dark Order. Tonight, Cardona is set for his AEW in-ring debut as he teams up with the reigning TNT Champion to battle Jon Silver and Alex Reynolds in tag team action.

MJF provides campaign update

This past Monday, it was announced that MJF will challenge the AEW World Champion at ALL OUT.

Last week, the MJF 2020 campaign earned The Salt Of The Earth his long-pending AEW World Title shot while exposing Moxley for the “Dictator” that he is. Tonight, MJF will provide an update on his campaign as he eagerly awaits the winner of Moxley vs. Allin.
