Tonight’s Anniversary edition of Dynamite is in Memphis, and the stars of AEW are already making their mark on the city. After the Memphis Grizzlies stomped the competition, the Young Bucks took out a fan of the opposing Minnesota Timberwolves as only they can.

As for MJF, he’s ready to go old school heel in the city, saying he’ll pull more “tail” than some of the legends AEW will honor tonight.
Time to make “Hot stuff” Eddie Gilbert blush from beyond the grave with the amount of tail I’m about to pull in Memphis.

MJF’s main goal in this week’s show is seeing if Cody will accept his many stipulations. The rising star seemingly doesn’t have the patience to wait until the broadcast either, posting this before the show on Twitter.
It’s 4:33 and Cody’s still too much of a bitch to accept my stipulations.

Dustin Rhodes is patiently waiting for his match alongside his brother Cody against the Lucha Bros. One wonders if Cody and Dustin have talked about the MJF situation, and if Dustin would back Cody up against MJF’s main man, Wardlow.

A quick detour to the Performance Center, where the latest edition of What’s your Hobbie with Robbie goes into Joaquin Wilde’s DJ skills. As he previously revealed on Twitter, The former DJZ only started DJing as a way to make him more appealing to WWE, so it’s good to see how far his lark of a hobby has taken him.
