Welcome to the latest edition of AEW IGNITE for 8/22/20! It is Saturday Night Dynamite! It is like a nostalgic trip back to the days of Saturday night wrestling on TBS. This rare weekend show has another TNT title match, a lot of tag team wrestling, and a Women’s Tag Team Cup Final. Let us see what they have in store for us with this week’s unique Dynamite!
Orange Cassidy’s First-Ever In-Ring Interview
Orange Cassidy picked up the biggest victory of his career defeating Chris Jericho last week. He is quickly becoming one of the biggest stars in all of All Elite Wrestling. What will he have to say in his first-ever in-ring interview?
Orange Cassidy has proven himself to be quite good on the mic in recent weeks. Will he move on to a fresh feud? Or will Chris Jericho demand a rubber match at All Out? It should be fun to see what the lazy one has to say.

Darby Allin In Action
Darby Allin is back! Allin hasn’t been on AEW Dynamite since losing his AEW World Title opportunity against Jon Moxley on August 5th. How will he be feeling after losing yet another title opportunity?
One thing Darby should look out for is Ricky Starks. On AEW Dark, he reminded Allin they had some unfinished business from their last match. Starks is not too happy that Darby Allin rammed a lot of thumbtacks into his back in their last match. How will Darby Allin deal with the very angry Starks?
The Lucha Brothers (Pentagon Jr & Rey Fenix), The Butcher, & The Blade vs. Jurassic Express (Jungle Boy & Luchasaurus) & The Natural Nightmares (QT Marshall & Dustin Rhodes)
The eight-man team of The Lucha Brothers along with The Butcher and The Blade are undefeated when they team together. They have big victories over the likes of The Elite and The Young Bucks/FTR. Can they continue their impressive success on Saturday night?
It will be a tough challenge for the “Nightmare Express”. These teams have had some success with their opponents in the past. It just has never been against these teams in eight-man action. Can the good guys pull off the big upset on Saturday night?
Women’s Tag Team Cup Finals
The Nightmare Sisters (Brandi Rhodes & Allie) vs. Diamante & Ivelisse
It is time for the tournament finals! The Women’s Tag Team tournament has been a lot of fun the last few weeks on the AEW Youtube channel. It has provided opportunities for new talent to showcase themselves on AEW programming. The Women’s Division is in desperate need of more television time. They will get some on Saturday night.
The Nightmare Sisters are the most experienced Women’s tag team in all of AEW. They have won six matches in a row as a team heading into the finals. Despite their conflicts in the Nightmare Family, they have come together to be the most dominant team of the division. Will their experience be enough to win their biggest match to date?
Their opponents are far less experienced as a tag team. A few weeks ago, Ivelisse and Diamante were enemies. Then they drew each other as a tag team in this tournament. They defeated Dasha and Rachel Ellering in the quarterfinals. They continued their success against the team of Tay Conti and Anna Jay in the semifinals. Can they pull off the biggest win of their careers on Saturday night?

FTR (Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood) vs. Private Party (Marq Quen & Isiah Kassidy)
It finally happened last week. FTR turned heel and attacked The Rock ‘n Roll Express. It seems they want to portray themselves as the best tag team in all of professional wrestling. So far in AEW, no one has been able to tell them differently in a traditional tag team match.
Enter Private Party. Their high-flying style is a real contrast to FTR’s hard-hitting style. Private Party has had a history of big upsets like their victory over the Young Bucks late last year. Will magic strike again on Saturday night?
The Elite (World Tag Team Champion Kenny Omega, Matt Jackson, & Nick Jackson) vs. The Dark Order (Alex “3” Reynolds, John “4” Silver, & Alan “5” Angels)
The Elite has been having quite the heated rivalry with the Dark Order in recent weeks. The Elite and FTR lost a huge twelve-man tag team match to the Dark Order just two weeks ago. Despite lots of attempted outside interference, the Young Bucks defeated Evil Uno and Stu Grayson last week. The rivalry continues on Saturday night.
This will be an important match for Reynolds, Silver, and Angels. They haven’t had a lot of success in recent weeks. They are in desperate need of a victory. If they cannot win on Saturday night, will they face the wrath of Brodie Lee?

TNT Championship: Cody (c) vs. Brodie Lee
Cody had pulled off another successful title defense in a great match against Scorpio Sky last week. It was at that moment that Brodie Lee appeared on the big screen holding the original TNT Championship. He wanted a shot at Cody’s new TNT Championship.
The Dark Order has interfered in Cody’s business repeatedly in recent weeks. After Cody defeated WARHORSE, the Dark Order attacked. Thankfully, Cody got help from his friend Matt Cardona. They defeated the Dark Order’s Silver and Reynolds the very next week. It is now Brodie Lee’s turn against Cody. Will he be the man to finally end Cody’s impressive title reign? Or will The Dark Order be able to win some gold in AEW? It will be an excellent main event for sure.
