According to sources, AEW changed their original plans for PAC’s match and Private Party vs. Dark Order from Wednesday night’s Dynamite broadcast.
The original plan was to have PAC face CIMA on the show. AEW President Tony Khan apparently made the change several days prior to the TV tapings and instead put PAC against Trent. A report from the Wrestling Observer Newsletter says that the reasoning was that the Best Friends segments have done good ratings in the 18 – 49 demographic. Also, CIMA has had too many losses on his record, so he was moved to a match for AEW Dark.
The other change was to the Private Party vs. Dark Order match for the final spot in the AEW Tag Team Championship match at Full Gear. The match was originally set to be a three-way match also featuring Jack Evans and Angelico, but it was decided to treat it like a runner up match from the Tag Team Championship tournament. With Private Party and Dark Order having been the losers in the semi-finals, it made sense for the two to fight for the final spot.
