A new report from Fightful Select has a few notes from last night’s episode of AEW Dynamite, which was taped in Bridgeport, CT.
– The plan for The Elite’s return was always to have the ‘Delete The Elite’ videos air leading up to their live appearance at Full Gear. The Young Bucks were reportedly backstage at last night’s show. Don Callis was also backstage, and has been several times leading up to The Elite’s return.
– Darius Martin came back much sooner than expected from his injuries related to a car crash. Martin teamed with his brother Dante and AR Fox in a losing effort against Death Triangle for the AEW Trios Championships. Most backstage thought that he would be out of action until early 2023.
– Several talents who appeared in backstage segments and promos were not actually at the show; they were taped ahead of time. There were also wrestlers backstage who weren’t used on the show.
– There is concern that Anthony Bowens aggravated his shoulder injury in his match against Swerve Strickland. It is possible that his injury is part of the story for the upcoming tag title match for Full Gear.
