Canadian fans hoping to watch AEW Dynamite's premiere can do so via TSN. According to PWInsider, the first episode will be live Wednesday at 8 p.m. EDT.


All Elite Wrestling is looking to start with a bang when it comes to Washington D.C. this Wednesday, with a slew of title matches and bouts that can and will affect two other titles.

Confirmed for the show is the AEW Women's Championship match between Nyla Rose and Riho. The winner will be crowned the first women's champion in the promotion's history.

Other matches for Dynamite's premiere include:

Cody vs Sammy Guevara

Cody is scheduled to take on Chris Jericho for the AEW World Championship at the Full Gear pay-per-view, but as the EVP said, if he loses to Guevara his new win/loss record may take him out of that match.

Young Bucks and Kenny Omega vs Chris Jericho and two mystery partners

Jericho has been the thorn in Omega's side since their feud in New Japan Pro Wrestling. Now, Omega looks to enact some sort of revenge on Jericho when he teams with Matt and Nick Jackson against Jericho and two mystery partners. Santana and Ortiz, formerly known as LAX in Impact, arrived at All Out to take out The Lucha Bros and the Young Bucks, so it's possible they can team with Jericho in this personal feud.

Adam "Hangman" Page vs PAC

Page and PAC were originally going to face off at Double or Nothing, potentially for the AEW World Championship, but, after some backstage creative differences, the match at the first AEW pay-per-view was called off. These two will finally get to square off in front of the AEW fateful on Wednesday.

MJF vs Brandon Cutler

MJF has talked his way to becoming one of the biggest heels in wrestling, and a lot of it has to do with his continued roasting of Brandon Cutler. Cutler is a relative unknown, but MJF continues to dump all over him for his hobbies and his look. Can Cutler shock AEW and MJF by defeating him?

Jon Moxley, the former Dean Ambrose, is confirmed to make an appearance at the premiere of Dynamite. AEW's plans for Moxley remain unknown, but don't expect him to get to physical as he recovers from a MRSA infection he caught while wrestling in Japan.
