Preview: AEW Dynamite IGNITE 3/18/20 (Exalted One)

Welcome to the latest edition of AEW Ignite! The world has changed dramatically in the last week. Who knew that last week’s Dynamite was going to be the last one with a live audience for the foreseeable future? But, to their credit, All Elite Wrestling wants to continue to entertain us in these troubling times. I know we are all in need of a distraction from Coronavirus news. Let us see what AEW has in store for us on Wednesday: Who is the exalted one?

Who is the Exalted One?

It is finally happening. After months of teases, the Dark Order will unveil their leader, The Exalted One. We have had a lot of speculation on who it might be but we will finally find out on Wednesday night.

Is it a little sad that the reveal will occur in front of no crowd? I believe so but you have to deal with the hand you are dealt. We just have to enjoy the moment that all AEW fans have been eagerly waiting for a long time. It will be delightful I hope. When fans find out who the exalted one will be!

Inner Circle vs. The Elite (Who Has Advantage?)

We are suppose to have the “Blood and Guts” match on March 25th. The match has a lot of similarities to Wargames and that means one team will need to gain an advantage. That will be decided on Wednesday in Jacksonville.

How that will actually look is hard to say. We don’t actually know who will be fighting to gain the advantage on Wednesday night. The Elite and the Inner Circle have had a lot of brawls and vicious attacks in recent weeks on AEW Dynamite. The idea of having an advantage for “Blood and Guts” will allow one faction to brutally assault the other group inside the steel cage. Who will gain the advantage on Wednesday night? It seems the Inner Circle has had the advantage in recent weeks. That might continue in Jacksonville.

The Butcher and The Blade vs. Jurassic Express

This is a continuation of the feud from last week. Thanks to some distractions from The Bunny, Jurassic Express lost their six-man tag match last week. They will be out for some revenge as Jungle Boy & Luchasaurus get their hands on The Butcher and The Blade in Jacksonville.

Jurassic Express hasn’t had a lot of luck in recent months. They are in desperate need of a win. Can they get it against the always formidable team of The Butcher and The Blade? And what role will The Bunny play in the outcome of the tag match? Will, she cost Jurassic Express yet again? We will find out on Dynamite together.

Lucha Bros. vs. Best Friends

The newly formed Death Triangle (Pac & Lucha Bros.) attacked Best Friends and Orange Cassidy two weeks ago. Last week they picked up a victory against Joey Janela and Private Party. After the match, they continued their assault until the Best Friends and Orange Cassidy saved the day. It is now time for some real revenge.

Orange Cassidy and Pac are not in the match itself but they will be at ringside. They still have a lot of bad blood from their excellent match at AEW Revolution. Will Orange Cassidy be out for some revenge? How will his devastating kicks sounds in an empty arena? It will be some fun to find out.

It will be an important night in Jacksonville on Wednesday. The wrestling world needs some escapism and I believe AEW will provide it for us. I thank all the AEW wrestlers and crew that will work so hard to make us smile for even a few hours. Make sure to read AEW Ignite next week to find out what happened at this historic show!
