Next Wednesday will see AEW and NXT present their final shows of 2019 and each has loaded the deck to close out the year.

On this week’s Dynamite, several matches were added including an AEW tag title match with Scorpio Sky & Frankie Kazarian defending against The Young Bucks. The Bucks earned the title match after defeating Santana & Ortiz in a Texas Street Fight on Wednesday’s show in Garland, Texas.

The promotion has also added a tag match with Kenny Omega & Hangman Page taking on Pentagon Jr. & Rey Fenix and a #1 contender’s match between Dr. Britt Baker and Kris Statlander. The winner of the women’s match will challenge champion Riho on the January 1st edition of the show from Daily’s Place in Jacksonville, Florida.

Those matches join the previously announced non-title match between Chris Jericho and Jungle Boy with Jungle Boy needing to last ten minutes.

On NXT, their top two titles will be defended with Adam Cole and Shayna Baszler set for title matches.

On Wednesday’s show, Finn Balor won the three-way match over Tommaso Ciampa and Keith Lee to set up his match with Cole next week for the title.

Baszler will defend the NXT women’s title against Rhea Ripley on the show.
