AEW fans in Columbia, South Carolina are in for a treat tonight. Tony Khan has announced two huge matchups for this week’s episode of Dynamite. CM Punk and Jon Moxley will both be in singles action on the show.

Khan first announced that Moxley will take on Jay Lethal on the show. The AEW boss emphasized that the bout is between two former world champions. This will be among Lethal’s most high-profile matches since signing with the company.

The other announced matchup will pit CM Punk against “Platinum” Max Caster. Max has become famous for his searing entrance raps. CM Punk is no stranger to a microphone, either.

“In a 1-on-1 battle of 2 great champions, former ROH World Champion @TheLethalJay (7-2 @AEW record) will take on former #AEW World Champion @jonmoxley (4-0 #AEW record) Live on Wednesday Night Dynamite TONIGHT! Jay Lethal vs. Jon Moxley #AEWDynamite 8pm ET/7pm CT on @TBSNetwork!”


“2 of the top orators in pro wrestling today will go one-on-one in the ring when @CMPunk battles @PlatinumMax on Dynamite TONIGHT! What will Caster say in his entrance rap? Can Punk shut Max’s big mouth? CM Punk vs. Max Caster #AEWDynamite @ 8pm ET/7pm CT on @TBSNetwork TONIGHT!”

Tonight’s show will also mark the start of the highly anticipated Owen Hart Foundation tournament. The Bunny will take on a mystery opponent in the qualifying round. You can check out the full card below.

  • Darby Allin vs Andrade El Idolo
  • FTR vs Gunn Club
  • The Bunny vs ??? – Owen Hart Foundation Women’s Tournament Qualifier
  • CM Punk vs Max Caster

Dynamite airs on TBS at 8 PM eastern. This looks to be another excellent card. A new arrival and the start of the Owen Hart tournament should add some intrigue to the show, as well.
