AEW 'Dynamite' Results: Tag Team Appreciation Night & TNT Title Match Scheduled

This week's episode of All Elite Wrestling Dynamite is a doozy as the promotion celebrates tag team wrestling.

Tag Team Appreciation Night goes down August 12 and will feature some of the best tag team wrestling in the entire industry. But that's not the only type of wrestling fans will see on Wednesday.

First up, we have Chris Jericho taking on Orange Cassidy. A rematch of their pay-per-view bout a few months back, Cassidy has gotten the upperhand of Jericho in recent weeks, defeating him in a debate and dumping gallons of orange juice on him and the rest of The Inner Circle.

Can Orange Cassidy get this elusive win over "Le Champion" or will Jericho's dominance continue?

In other non-tag team match news, Cody will defend the TNT Championship against Scorpio Sky tonight. Cody has elevated the new AEW championship to become must-see in recent weeks, but can the former Tag Team Champion Sky rip the title from one of the EVPs of AEW?

Kenny Omega and Hangman Adam Paige, the AEW Tag Team Champions, will defend their titles against Luchasaurus and Jungle Boy. Paige and Omega are the longest reigning Tag Team Champions in the company's history, but the lead members of Jurassic Express are ready to take their game to the next level with some gold.

The Young Bucks will take on Evil Uno and Stu Grayson of The Dark Order in tag team action. The Dark Order have a ton of momentum after their victory last week, but The Young Bucks look to keep Uno and Grayson out of the tag team title picture and insert themselves in that spot.

Wrestling fans will also be treated an appearance from The Rock n Roll Express and Arn Anderson and Tully Blanchard will all appear on tonight's Dynamite.

Here's everything that happened on the August 12 episode of AEW Dynamite.
