Five matches are announced for AEW Dynamite episode of February 8, 2023, which includes AEW Tag Team Championship match and a Gauntlet match Ricky Stark.
Brayn Danielson will face Rush as his final hurdle to become the #1 contender for AEW World Championship. Danielson has defeated Tony Nese, Konsuke Takeshita, Bandido, Brian Cage and Timothy Thatcher since the start of this year in singles matches.
As per the condition posted by Tony Khan, if Bryan beats Rush next week, he will get a World Title match against MJF. This match will be a one-hour long iron man match at AEW Revolution as per the agreement with MJF. MJF has given Rush a briefcase full of cash to beat Bryan next week and promised him 5 times more money if he succeeds.
MJF himself will take on Konosuke Takeshita next week. Takeshita saved Bryan from a post-match attack from MJF last week while also stopping MJF from interferring in Bryan’s match against Thatcher this week.
The Acclaimed will defend AEW World Tag Team Championship against the Gunn Club. The Gunn Club interrupted the Acclaimed once again this week on Dynamite after they defeated a local team from Ohio. When Billy Gunn walked out on both teams, The Gunn Club accused Billy of running away once again. An enraged Billy Gunn then gave The Gunn Club their title shot on February 8 episode of Dynamite.
