Ahead of this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, Tony Khan teased something special for the show with a tweet stating the “the balance of power would shift in wrestling.” While PAC would make his unprecedented return to the ring following seven months away and recently residing on a different continent, many fans would critique the return as being underwhelming following Khan’s promotion of the show. However, Tony Khan has defended the line.
Thank you everyone who watched #AEWDynamite last night! A shift in wrestling’s balance of power has begun & the winners will be the wrestling fans. PAC’s returned after 8 months & I have aces up the sleeve in the weeks ahead. You won’t get them all at once but you’ll get them all

Earlier in the day, PWInsider.com reported that they reached out to Khan about the meaning of said tweet and received the following response:
“There’s more to come, PAC coming back is the beginning of a huge push for the rest of the year, as I said in my last tweet just now. Balance of power in storyline refers to Eddie’s strong power base as a character which could be threatened, but it also refers to the big push AEW is making for the rest of the year into and through December and into 2021.”
Next week’s AEW Dynamite will feature PAC’s first match on Dynamite in eight months, as the former WWE Cruiserweight Champion takes on The Blade. PAC’s return last night saw him seemingly challenge Eddie Kingston’s leadership of two of PAC’s Death Triangle accomplices, following Kingston’s loss to Jon Moxley in an I Quit Match at Full Gear.
