The finals of the AEW World Title Eliminator tournament will be determined by the 11/3 Dynamite. Next week, Jon Moxley will meet Orange Cassidy in the semifinals. Moxley defeated Preston ’10’ Vance to advance. Bryan Danielson versus Eddie Kingston is the other semifinal match and that bout is airing on the 10/29 Rampage.

Sammy Guevara successfully defended his TNT Championship against Ethan Page. With his win, The Inner Circle will get to decide what three members of American Top Team will join Scorpio Sky and Ethan Page at Full Gear for the five-on-five against The Inner Circle. That match is going to be a ‘Minneapolis Street Fight’.

There was an in-ring segment featuring Cody Rhodes and Arn Anderson. Cody is coming off a win against Malakai Black and he apologized to members of the Nightmare Family along with Arn Anderson for not listening to them. Cody also said that he is not turning heel. He was later confronted by Andrade El Idolo and Malakai Black. Making the save on Cody’s behalf was PAC and he ran off both Black and Andrade. Rhodes versus Andrade El Idolo is official for 11/3.

Hikaru Shida secured her 50th win in AEW and advanced in the TBS Women’s Title tournament by defeating Serena Deeb. Shida is scheduled to take on Nyla Rose in the quarterfinals. Post-match, Deeb attacked Shida’s knee with a chair. The TBS Title tournament is continuing on 11/3 when Anna Jay takes on Jamie Hayter in a first round matchup.

Former WWE Cruiserweight Champion Tony Nese was front row once again at Dynamite. Nese worked the AEW Dark tapings at Universal Studios over the weekend. He is still being referred to as a “free agent”.

In the main event of Dynamite, Dark Order (John Silver, Stu Grayson, Colt Cabana & Evil Uno) defeated The Elite (Kenny Omega, Adam Cole & The Young Bucks). Hangman Adam Page appeared and helped Dark Order get the win.

CM Punk and Bobby Fish kicked off Dynamite in what was Punk’s first match on the program. Punk defeated Fish with a ‘GTS’.
