AEW was able to produce a full episode of Dynamite this week, but they couldn’t get everyone to show up to their undisclosed location. It’s unclear how many weeks’ worth of television they shot, but they were said to be doing a lot of taping.
We previously reported that AEW had trouble getting their entire roster to Dynamite for the tapings. This resulted in them having to carry on with a lighter roster.
Brodie Lee was there, but Evil Uno and Stu Grayson were not. Instead, they had two numbered representatives from the Dark Order.
Notable names like MJF and Chris Jericho were missing from this week’s episode as well. Jericho could have been there, but he was not featured this week which could have been true for anyone. Jericho was in a video package, but it could have been recorded weeks ago.
Tony Schiavone was on commentary and his partner switched in and out between stars. Dasha Gonzalez was the ring announcer as well.
You can check out the list of stars who were featured on the show below. Some were seen in the crowd, or we know they are there due to a match announcement.
- Chuck Taylor
- Kenny Omega
- Orange Cassidy
- Colt Cabana
- Kip Sabian
- Britt Baker
- Hikaru Shida
- Anna Jayy (Georgia indie wrestler, Nightmare Factory student)
- Austin Gunn
- Billy Gunn
- Jon Moxley (AEW World Champion is there & will wrestle on April 15th episode)
- Penelope Ford
- Jimmy Havoc
- Marko Stunt
- Lance Archer (Jake Roberts appeared via video package, not at ringside)
- 8 & 9 of the Dark Order
- Dustin Rhodes
- Brandi Rhodes
- QT Marshall
- “Exalted One” Brodie Lee
- Darby Allin
- Sammy Guevara
- Shawn Spears
SCU wasn’t there and neither was the Death Triangle faction. Luchasaurus and Jungle Boy were also notably missing as Marko Stunt faced Lace Archer with nobody in his corner. Jake Roberts also wasn’t there live, but he did appear via a video package. The Young Bucks were also absent from this week’s episode which was a running theme with California wrestlers.
More stars could have been in the back, but not featured this week. Jon Moxley obviously made the tapings as he has an AEW World Title defense in two weeks against Jake Hager.
