AEW returns coming up May - June 2023

Miro, Thunder Rosa and CM Punk (maybe)

Miro has been off television due to a combination of AEW having nothing for him and his rejection of their plans for him to put over Adam Page. Nevertheless, it is known he is fit and healthy and ready to return to the ring imminently. However, the same can’t be said for Rosa, who has been out of action with a severe back injury that forced her to vacate the AEW Women’s Championship last September.

Punk is understood to have a return match with long time rival Samoa Joe.and this could be ideal for AEW’s upcoming Collision show on Saturday nights,


-- AEW: Rampage Airs Live from Jim Whelan Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City,
(All Elite Wrestling)


Where Tyson First Fought in 1987 --

Nov. 2, 2022 – Ahead of this Friday’s action-packed “AEW: Rampage,” AEW announced that boxing legend Mike Tyson will serve as a special guest commentator on the show, which will air live on TNT from Jim Whelan Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, NJ. No stranger to AEW, Friday’s appearance marks Tyson’s fifth for the red-hot promotion, having first appeared at AEW’s DOUBLE OR NOTHING pay-per-view in 2020.

Since then, Tyson has served as both friend and foe to Chris Jericho in AEW. On the May 27, 2020, episode of “AEW: Dynamite,” Tyson, alongside MMA superstars Henry Cejudo, Rashad Evans and Vitor Belfort, confronted Jericho and the Inner Circle, clashing at the end of the show. Tyson returned less than a year later, aiding Jericho and the Inner Circle in their feud against MJF and The Pinnacle. Tyson also served as the special guest enforcer during a match between Jericho and Dax Harwood, delivering a one-punch knockout to Cash Wheeler in the process.

Tyson has made history numerous times in Atlantic City at Jim Whelan Boardwalk Hall, holding victories over Tyrell Biggs, Larry Holmes, Michael Spinks, Carl Williams and Alex Stewart at the iconic venue. Now, 25 years after first stepping foot in Boardwalk Hall, Tyson’s latest appearance leaves potential for another history-making moment.

“We love having Mike Tyson on our shows and now fans will get a chance to see a different side of Mike in AEW as he steps into our commentary booth for the first time alongside the incredible team of Jim Ross, Excalibur and Tony Schiavone,” said Tony Khan, CEO, GM and Head of Creative of AEW. “I’m excited for everyone in Atlantic City, and for those watching on TNT and around the world, to see what Mike has in store for us. AEW is firing on all cylinders right now and adding Iron Mike to the mix elevates everyone’s game even further.”

“It’s always good to return to Atlantic City,” said Mike Tyson. “I grew up as a wrestling fan so to be a special guest commentator for AEW this Friday is an honor. You never know what to expect when I’m a special guest so tune in.”

Also announced for Friday’s “AEW: Rampage” is the All-Atlantic City Dream Match, where the winner of tonight’s three-way matchup for the AEW All Atlantic Championship between Orange Cassidy (c), Luchasaurus and Rey Fénix will get to face the challenger of their choosing. Tune into “AEW: Dynamite” on TBS tonight at 8 p.m. ET to catch the action leading into Friday’s “AEW: Rampage” on TNT.

Tickets for Friday’s show in Atlantic City at Jim Whelan Boardwalk Hall start at $20 (plus fees) and are on sale now at

Chris Jericho Reportedly Had Strong Words for CM Punk After AEW All Out Fight - October 28th, 2022


ROH World Champion Chris Jericho reportedly had choice words for CM Punk following the backstage incident at AEW All Out last month.

A new report from Fightful Select notes that Jericho approached Punk following the brawl, unhappy with how things went, and the nature of the post-show media scrum. Jericho reportedly told Punk that he was a cancer to the locker room, and a detriment to AEW, according to multiple sources including some close to Punk.

It was noted that Punk essentially told Jericho it wasn’t his business, and he needed to leave.

Shortly after the Jericho – Punk confrontation, Jericho joined AEW President Tony Khan at the media scrum. He also held lead the talent meeting in the days that followed, and was recently signed to a significant contract extension that saw him take on additional responsibilities.

Jericho was heavily lauded by AEW sources for his resolve and demeanor in stepping up during the media scrum right after the incident went down.

It was recently reported that former AEW Producer Ace Steel was let go from the company due to his role in the brawl, while Punk remains suspended amid rumors of a contract buy-out. You can click here for new details on the incident from Punk’s camp. AEW Executive Vice Presidents Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks have been suspended, but were all backstage at AEW Dynamite this week. AEW confirmed their upcoming returns with a vignette that aired, seen here.

It’s believed that Punk will not return to AEW. He and Jericho did commentary together on AEW Rampage, but never got the chance to rekindle their rivalry from WWE in the AEW ring.



Tony Khan will make a rare appearance tonight for his massive announcement during AEW Dynamite - March 2, 2022


Tony Khan said on Busted Open Radio that he will be appearing live on tonight’s AEW Dynamite to make his massive announcement.

Khan noted that this would only be the second time that he’s appeared on Dynamite and he doesn’t want to make this a habit. The other time when Khan appeared on AEW television was during the Brodie Lee tribute show in December 2020.

Khan has said that nobody knows what he is going to announce and he has indicated that this will be on the level of “The First Dance” announcement that featured the debut of CM Punk.

There are many people speculating that this could be a major streaming deal or perhaps, the purchase of the ROH library. Whatever it is, all of the speculation will be put to rest tonight on Dynamite.

Announced for tonight:

– AEW World Champion Hangman Adam Page, John Silver and Alex Reynolds vs. Adam Cole and ReDRagon
– Casino Tag Team Royale – winner will be in the AEW World Tag Team Title match at Revolution on Sunday
– AEW Women’s World Champion Dr. Britt Baker, DMD and Jamie Hayter vs. Thunder Rosa and Mercedes Martinez
– Tony Khan’s major announcement

'They should move to any other night, get away from us' - Chris Jericho slams WWE with a bold statement - 4th September 2020

"They lost! There's nothing wrong with conceiting defeat and moving to a different night." Chris Jericho had a lot more to say.

There are rumors about WWE possibly moving NXT to a different night.

AEW Dynamite and NXT have aired on different days for the past few weeks. As expected, the results have been quite positive for both companies. Both shows have drawn huge numbers without any competition, and there is also talk about NXT possibly moving out from the Wednesday slot. Chris Jericho, who has always been on the offensive when it comes to AEW's ratings victories over WWE, has sent another bold message to the WWE.

During a recent appearance on the Busted Open radio show, the Demo God addressed the rumors of WWE contemplating a change of day for NXT.

Chris Jericho said that he wasn't surprised that the WWE was planning on retreating from the Wednesday Night Wars. The AEW Superstar sent a direct message to his former employers that they should move to another night. Chris Jericho felt that WWE had a great program, and their spiteful tactic of going up against AEW was only hurting NXT's ratings.

Chris Jericho says WWE should just conceit defeat

Chris Jericho declared that AEW isn't going anywhere and that Dynamite would continue to beat NXT. Jericho felt that WWE retreating is the right move from a business standpoint. 'Le Champion' isn't bothered about NXT breaching the 800k or 900k barriers as he and AEW are focussed on getting over the 1 million mark. He also spoke about the importance of the 18-49 demographic.

Chris Jericho said that the WWE lost, and there is nothing wrong for them to conceit defeat. The former AEW World Champion concluded by proclaiming that no one can stop All Elite Wrestling.

Here's Chris Jericho's full statement on the rumors of WWE moving to another night and the ongoing ratings war:

"Once again, it was never a war for me. This is a war that was thrust upon us by a company that is very petty and very spiteful, and we know the reason why NXT was moved to Wednesday nights. To mess with us. We get it. We pay attention to what we are doing. We don't care what they're doing, and we have no interest in it. If you watch us, you get the ratings, where we beat them week after week. We beat them in the demos where people think it's jokes. The only thing that matters is the TV networks and advertisers that listed the 18-49 demo. Look it up. We win every week. They should retreat. They should move to any other night. Get away from us! You guys got a great program, and it's good; why would you want to sacrifice your own ratings just to be spiteful and petty to go head to head with AEW? We're not going anywhere and put on anything you want - we'll continue to beat you. It is a retreat, but it's also the right move from a business standpoint. Get your head out of your rear end and just worry about your product the same way we worry about ours. If they move to Tuesday, smart move. That way, you guys can get your 850 thousand, 900 thousand. Whatever! Get 10 million viewers. Congratulations! Let us do our thing, and we'll get over a million. I think it's a smart move business-wise on theirs. They lost! There's nothing wrong with conceiting defeat, moving to a different night, and worrying about your show and not worrying about going head to head with AEW because you can't stop us." H/t WrestlingInc

While Chris Jericho is just doing his job of putting over AEW, many fans would argue that both shows airing on different nights would be the right decision as they can watch both shows. The ratings and viewership figures from the past few weeks have proven that putting out shows on separate days could be ideal for moving forward.

Also, don't forget to check out the latest interview from Sportskeeda in which our very own Gary Cassidy caught up with Chris Jericho. The legendary star discussed a plethora of topics, including the possibility of Brock Lesnar coming to AEW, the origins of his nickname, Jon Moxley, Orange Cassidy, and much more.
