NXT and AEW Dynamite put on stellar shows this week
Whether you are a passionate supporter of WWE, AEW, or wrestling in general, you have to agree that both wrestling promotions hit it out of the park with their special edition shows. While NXT featured night one of The Great American Bash, the first part of Fyter Fest took place on AEW Dynamite.
NXT had a stacked match card from top to the bottom including matches such as Io Shirai vs. Sasha Banks, Dexter Lumis vs. Roderick Strong and an incredible No.1 Contender's Fatal Four-way Elimination Match for the NXT Women's Championship. The show also featured appearances by Bayley and Asuka.
But AEW Dynamite made sure to pull out all the stops as well. The show featured three title matches with Cody defending his TNT Championship against Jake Hager, Hikaru Shida facing Penelope Ford for the AEW Women's Championship, and the Best Friends challenging Kenny Omega and Hangman Page for the AEW Tag Titles.
Fyter Fest and The Great American Bash will continue next week on Dynamite and NXT respectively.
