AEW Rewind: Punk’s Dream Matches, Daniels’s Fallen Angel Promo, More!
Don’t have time to follow all of AEW’s online content? Do not worry. We’ve got you covered with the AEW Rewind, which will rewind last week’s social media tracks and YouTube videos to get you ready for Wednesday night. Dynamite.
“AEW Road to Rochester,” honored Hispanic Heritage Month with the Pentagon, Andrade, Santana, Tay Conti, Vickie Guerrero, Sammy Guevara, Eddie Kingston, Thunder Rosa, Fenix and Ortiz. It also excited Adam Cole against Jungle Boy and Miro defending the TNT Championship against Sammy Guevara. A nod to the upper segment goes to Sammy explaining what it would mean to win a title and Miro’s sassy sound bites.
CM Punk offered a question-and-answer session on Twitter, and one of the answers was about his personal dream matches. Bryan Danielson and Kenny Omega are obvious super opponents. The third option pricked my ears.
Bryan, omega, me / bryan vs lucha bros mask / titles vs hair / beard Mexico City.

Punk desires to team up with Danielson against Fenix and Pentagon in a lucha de apuestas hair against masks. The topper takes him outside of the United States and to Mexico City. It would be so great as an international show. The request did not fall on deaf ears. AAA promoter Dorian Roldan has taken note and would like it to happen.
There weren’t a lot of story beats on Elevation and Dark in regards to Dynamite this week. Elevation the highlights were Paul Wight in an old-fashioned 1v3 handicap to show his attraction as a giant, Daniel Bryan declaring his desire to work through the rankings to win the AEW World Championship, and Tony Khan joined by Lil Uzi Vert for a rap battle with Max Caster. Dark announced the signing of Kiera Hogan and made appearances with NXT alumni Santana Garrett and Arturo Ruas. Garrett is already getting into a mini quarrel with Diamante.
In the FIFA video game tournament in the AEW locker room, Miro and John Silver qualified for the final showdown to be broadcast live on AEW Games Twitch on October 6.
Chris Jericho’s cruise added Wardlow, Sonny Kiss, Rebel, Luther, Serpentico, Ashley D’Amboise, Dasha Gonzalez, Aubrey Edwards, Peter Avalon and Cezar Bononi to the roster. A special match has also been announced. Jericho will team up with Orange Cassidy against Ricky Starks and Will Hobbs.
Be the elite
“Grand Slam” – Being the Elite, Ep. 275 (here) Featured:
- Christopher Daniels is back! CD opened BTE with a must-have promo for Fallen Angel fans. He has played everything and lost everything. Now he’s all alone. Daniels has nothing to fight with except the right to keep fighting. What he thought was the end could actually be a new beginning.
- 2point0 teased Renee Paquette who wanted a shot at the BTE Championship. To tidy up, they instituted a filing system.
- The Young Bucks went out to buy sneakers again. They were not fazed by the 18,000 spectators at Arthur Ashe Stadium, as they wrestled seven times at the Tokyo Dome.
- Images of the underground entrances behind the scenes of the room.
- Ryan Nemeth’s cream segment was all about juicy gossip. It was all wrong stuff, like -1 being injured in Vietnam.
- Karl Anderson was rubbing one, so the Bucks and Luke Gallows left without him for their trio match with Adam Cole on the Carnage. The highlights of the competition followed.
- Alex Reynolds stopped John Silver from drinking urine. They looked for new friends and found the beefy Wardlow. He politely declined their erotic advances.
We’ll end with a new shirt for Darby Allin.
