It looks like we’re in for a busy episode of AEW Dynamite this Wednesday.

Another big match was added to this evening’s AEW card, which will take place from the DCU Center in Worchester, Massachusetts.

Bryan Danielson will face Lance Archer in a singles match, per an announcement made on Wednesday afternoon. The matchup will give Archer a chance to avenge a defeat that he took in six-man tag team action against Danielson on last Saturday’s episode of AEW Collision.

The singles bout will continue a busy stretch for Danielson. After competing on a CMLL card in Mexico on Friday, he went to the Saturday taping of Collision. And after facing Archer tonight he will then head back to Mexico for a one-on-one appearance against Blue Panther at CMLL Super Viernes.

Tonight’s match will be Archer’s third Dynamite appearance over the past year. While the “Murder Hawk Monster” has appeared frequently on other AEW programs and as part of ROH TV tapings, his last match on the promotion’s flagship show dates back to January 10.

AEW also announced that we’ll hear from TNT Champion Adam Copeland on Dynamite. Copeland prevailed in the first title edition of the Cope Open last weekend, beating Matt Cardona in 13 minutes.

Here are all of the segments that have been announced for Wednesday’s Dynamite. An order of events posted earlier in the day suggests that a match between Powerhouse Hobbs and Will Ospreay will headline the card:

  • Powerhouse Hobbs vs. Will Ospreay
  • Samoa Joe & Swerve Strickland AEW Dynasty Contract Signing
  • Young Bucks vs. Orange Cassidy & Trent Beretta (AEW World Tag Team Championship Tournament Semi-Final)
  • Daddy Ass vs. Jay White
  • Thunder Rosa vs. Mariah May
  • Chris Jericho calls out HOOK
  • Lance Archer vs. Bryan Danielson
  • Adam Copeland appearance

Loaded again. Is Mone there?

Doesn’t look like they’re promoting her for tonight. She’s being promoted for a pair of shows later this month in Jacksonville, but nothing before then has been announced. You never know though!

They are taping Collison tonight. Entirely possible a lot of folks are there who haven’t been announced.

Show looks loaded. They have been on a roll lately

Looks like we have our answer!

I wonder if, when he signed, Jay White thought he’d be selling for 11 minutes to 60-year-old Billy Gunn in a worst match of the year candidate :joy:
