AEW World Tag Team Match: The Young Bucks (Nick Jackson & Matt Jackson) (c) (with Don Callis) vs. Varsity Blonds (Brian Pillman Jr. & Griff Garrison) – In many ways, the Jacksons go from being a team with everything to lose to a team with nothing to lose. Last week Dynamite, the Young Bucks ended the SoCal Uncensored partnership (and possibly Christopher Daniels’ career) when they defeated “The Fallen Angel” and Frankie Kazarian in a bloody encounter with the stipulation that SCU must stop teaming up if they lose. After claiming victory over, perhaps, AEW’s most successful tag team, the brothers now face one of the youngest and hungriest in the business at Pillman and Garrison in what will be the biggest game of the latter’s career. The Varsity Blonds enter their first title game on a nine-game winning streak in tag team competition. They last tasted defeat in February when they fell to Team Taz’s Brian Cage and Ricky Starks on the Dynamite. While the game represents a huge opportunity for the pair, the pressure is on the Jackson brothers, who enter the game as the big favorites. Will the Young Bucks be in for a disappointment after last week’s emotional encounter and can the Varsity Blonds pull off one of the biggest upheavals in AEW history?

NWA Women’s World Championship match: Serena Deeb (c) vs. Red Velvet – Serena Deeb returns after a long time on the sidelines with a knee injury and she does not return to the competition at all, immediately defending her NWA title. Deeb last wrestled during the Feb. 17 edition of Dynamite, falling to Riho in a women’s world title match. The match will mark Deeb’s fifth title defense since winning the crown from Thunder Rosa last fall. So far, Deeb has managed to retain his title against Leyla Hirsch, Allysin Kay, Tay Conti and Thunder Rosa in a rematch. For Velvet, this will be the first time she will be in action on Dynamite since losing her grudge match against Jade Cargill in April and her first gold strike in her AEW career. Can Velvet take advantage of Deeb’s ring rust or will the champion’s reign as the NWA title holder continue?

The Acclaimed (Max Caster and Anthony Bowens) vs. Jon Moxley and Eddie Kingston – Before Mox and Kingston can take on the Young Bucks’ challenge to Double or nothing, the pair have to go through one of AEW’s hottest teams right now in Caster and Bowens. Since Bowens’ return from injury last month, The Acclaimed have won five straight team wins and are also targeting the Jacksons. Moxley enters Wednesday night’s game after successfully defending his IWGP United States Championship against Yuji Nagata in a hard-hitting affair last week. Since starting to team up in the early spring, Moxley and Kingston have proven to be a formidable combination, remaining undefeated in four games together. The suspension of this match is whether the Elite will make their presence known in some form or another. Moxley and Kingston have been embroiled in a bitter feud with the Jacksons, Kenny Omega, and the Good Brothers (Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson) for months, so it wouldn’t come as a shock if they decided to get involved in the proceedings. But in taking on a team of the caliber of The Acclaimed, Moxley and Kingston just can’t afford to look elsewhere.

Christian Cage vs. Matt Sydal – Believe it or not, Cage and Sydal have never met in a one-on-one match before despite all of their years in the business. The two have crossed paths several times in the past, but Wednesday night’s game marks the first time the pair have shared a ring in nearly a decade. The last time these two met, Cage came out on the losing side when he, The Miz and R-Truth fell to the team of Sydal, Sheamus and Kofi Kingston in the fall of 2011. The Web Background of Wednesday night’s game is the Casino Battle. Royal at Double or nothing, a match that Sydal and Cage both committed to, with the winner securing a future shot for the AEW World Championship. So far, Jungle Boy, Powerhouse Hobbs, Evil Uno, Colt Cabana, Marq Quen, Isiah Kassidy, and Matt Hardy are also announced for the game. As this is only Cage’s third AEW game, he will be looking to go undefeated ahead of the PPV, but will need to keep Team Taz’s potential presence in mind. Cage and Team Taz have been embroiled in a feud since Cage rejected Taz’s offer to join the group. Taz has already made it known that he will be joining the commentary team for this game, so if he’s there, does that mean Hobbs, Brian Cage and Hook will be too?

AEW Women’s World Championship Elimination Match: Hikaru Shida (c) vs. Rebel (with Dr Britt Baker, DMD) – You can be forgiven if you don’t think this game will end up being a real contest. If Rebel manages to beat Shida, which no one has been able to do one-on-one since December 2019, then she wins a future title against the champion. The match will only be Rebel’s second one-on-one at AEW and the chances of her securing a win here are slim to none. So the question is, what is really going on here? The answer to this lies with Shida’s opponent at Double or nothing, Britt Baker. Could the Good Doctor interfere on Rebel’s behalf during this match or just use the match as an opportunity to soften Shida ahead of next weekend’s PPV? Shida may be the overwhelming favorite in this game, but it’s who is outside the ring that she’ll need to keep her eyes on.

“The Guv’nor” Anthony Ogogo (with The Factory) vs. Austin Gunn – Before Ogogo’s match with Cody Rhodes at Double or nothing, Gunn mobilized to defend the honor of the Nightmare Family against the contract killer of the Traitor Factory. The match will be Gunn’s first in singles competition on Dynamite and he’s up against a man who seems unstoppable right now. The 2012 Olympic bronze medalist boxer made his ring debut last month and sent Cole Karter in under a minute with a devastating body blow. Gunn has to somehow defend himself against Ogogo’s murderous hands, something that seems a lot easier said than done. Will Gunn win a measure of revenge for the Nightmare family or will he fall victim to Ogogo’s right hand?
