From a fantastic clash between two AEW giants to a heated brawl between Chris Jericho and Orange Cassidy, this week's edition of AEW Dynamite featured many contrasting moments.
This episode did a really good job of hyping up Pro-Wrestling fans for AEW's upcoming Fyter Fest event. Stars like Jon Moxley and Sammy Guevara were missing from this week's action for two completely different reasons, and still, the company managed to book a solid episode from start-to-finish.

#5: Jake Hager's wife splashed a glass of water on Cody's face ahead of Fyter Fest
The TNT Championship press conference kicked off with Arn Anderson and Cody cutting passionate promos ahead of the latter's title defense at AEW Fyter Fest.
Arn even put over Jake Hager and revealed that maybe Cody wasn't ready to face The Inner Circle's muscle yet, but we all know that Cody Rhodes is most likely to successfully retain his TNT title next week.
The truth is that Hager isn't as intimidating as say, Lance Archer or Brian Cage. Maybe its the fact that Hager participates in Inner Circle's comedy skits every now and then, but with that in mind, this week's press conference segment was a step in the right direction.
Hager isn't a talker, and he arrived late to the press conference with his wife, Catalina White, who splashed a glass of water on Cody's face just to get under the Champion's skin before Fyter Fest.
Cody didn't retaliate for the time being, but if Hager's wife also stands by his side during the title match, it's very likely that Brandi Rhodes will get involved as well.
