On January 11th, AEW Dynamite made it’s Los Angeles debut and featured a huge return and a title change.
Following a knock-down, drag-out brawl between Jon Moxley and Hangman Adam Page in the opening match of the night, Adam Cole made his long-awaited return. The former NXT star had been absent since June 2022 through injury. In a passionate promo, Cole confirmed he’s suffered two concussions and a shoulder injury before putting the locker room on notice.
Meanwhile in the main event The Elite overcame Death Triangle in the final match of their ‘Best of Seven’ series. In the spectacular Escalera de la Muerte (Ladder Match) Kenny Omega and the Young Bucks reigned supreme to win the AEW World Trios Titles.
After the show went off the air, AEW taped the upcoming edition of Rampage which will air on January 13th.
