The AEW Dynamite first anniversary show didn't disappoint. We saw all four titles in AEW on the line. This included Jon Moxley defending the AEW World Championship in a No DQ match. We also had Cody defend the TNT Championship against Orange Cassidy and Hikaru Shida defending against Big Swole.
The AEW Tag Team Titles kicked off AEW Dynamite as FTR faced Best Friends.
