At the conclusion of this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, Andrade El Idolo and RUSH turned on Dragon Lee.
Just seconds before the show went off the air, El Idolo and RUSH assaulted Lee following their Trios Title Tournament loss.
As we reported earlier here on eWn, Kenny Omega made his return as The Young Bucks mystery partner to defeat El Idolo, RUSH and Lee in the main event. After Omega checked on Lee and they embraced, El Idolo helped Lee up. That led to RUSH pushing Lee into a Hammerlock DDT, which wound up causing the latter to be unmasked.
The show faded to black with Omega and Matt Jackson running back into the ring. So there’s a big cliffhanger going into Rampage.
AEW President Tony Khan took to Twitter following the show, promising to air footage of what happened after Dynamite on this week’s episode of Rampage. He wrote,
“Thank you all who watched #AEWDynamite tonight!
After the bell in our classic main event the @AEW World Trios Tournament opener with the return of @KennyOmegamanX, postmatch action unexpectedly got out of hand!
We’ll have highlights of that aftermath this Friday on #AEWRampage!”
A little confused. I mean I get what went down at the end of the show here with Andrade Attacking & unmasking Dragon Lee, but it was shot very odd. Then Nick Jackson runs back to maybe help Dragon Lee & it just cuts. Hmm… #AEWDynamite pic.twitter.com/7s5aXB5H6m
