The Elite Return, will MJF appear?

It’s starting to look like a new era in All Elite Wrestling. AEW full equipment saw multiple homegrown stars collect championships, most notably with Maxwell Jacob Friedman and Jamie Hayter taking top singles prizes in their respective divisions. Aside from the title changes, Kenny Omega and the Young Bucks ended their newsworthy absence by challenging AEW World Trios Champions Death Triangle, Wardlow’s TNT title reign ended abruptly thanks to an opportunistic Samoa Joe, and Saraya ended her five-year retirement Dr. Britt Baker DMD in her second leg.

All these consequences and more will be addressed tonight AEW dynamite, with the most anticipated segment coming from William Regal. As mentioned, MJF left the Prudential Center with the AEW world title, but he did so thanks to a brass knuckles from the founder of the Blackpool Combat Club. While Friedman himself hasn’t been advertised for the show, Regal himself will be speaking at the pay-per-view for the first time since his villainous turn. Since he’s the new champion, MJF will probably show up, but he teased the AEW full equipment press conference that he would be in Los Angeles this week for filming The iron claw.

Even if the champion doesn’t show up, his next challenger will be decided. The finals of the AEW World Title Eliminator tournament go down as MJF’s former ally Ethan Page takes on Ricky Starks. The winner of this fight will challenge Friedman to AEW Dynamite: Winter is coming next month.

Three title matches are also scheduled for tonight. AEW All-Atlantic Champion Orange Cassidy defends against Jake Hager, New Japan’s Tomohiro Ishii challenges ROH World Champion Chris Jericho and The Elite take on AEW World Trios Champions Death Triangle in the second match of their best of seven series.
