The Don Callis Family’s Powerhouse Hobbs (with Don Callis)
vs. CJ Esparza!

Hobbs will be facing IWGP Heavyweight Champion Jon Moxley on
Dynamite this Wednesday.

Powerhouse Hobbs bulldozed Esparza. Hobbs hit the World’s
Most Dangerous Slam on the apron over and over.

“He’s gonna break this kid in two! Rack ‘em!” shouted

Hobbs put Esparza in the torture rack and quickly gained a
dominant victory.

Callis: “I have something important to say. The Don Callis
Family is the talk of professional wrestling. Everybody
knows that I was directly responsible in 2017 for Kenny
Omega winning the IWGP Heavyweight Title. Everybody knows
the biggest match in the history of Japanese wrestling was
Jericho vs. Omega at the Tokyo Dome in 2018. That match was
signed, sealed and delivered by Don Callis. A match that set
new course of success, and when they thanked me for the
favor, I said one day I may come and ask you for a favor.

“I waited six years to cash that favor in. I cashed in all
my chips and I’m happy to announce that the match on
Dynamite between Jon Moxley and Powerhouse Hobbs will be for
the IWGP Heavyweight Championship. And one more time, the
IWGP Championship will come home to the Don Callis Family!”

Chris Jericho was outside the arena with a message for FTW
Champion HOOK!

Jericho said he wanted to apologize to Hook for pushing Taz
on Dynamite. But Jericho was going to take Hook up on his
offer. So, Jericho said he went to Tony Khan for a match for
the FTW Championship at Dynasty and Tony Khan granted it.

“The learning tree is going to teach you one of the hardest
lessons you’ll learn. You’ll learn what it’s like to lose
one of the things you value the most when I take that FTW
Championship from you,” said Jericho.

AEW World Trios Champions The Acclaimed—Anthony Bowens & Max
Caster (with Daddy Ass)
ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Champions The Gunns—Austin &
Colten Gunn (with “Switchblade” Jay White)!

Schiavone said that Tony Khan told him that if the Gunns
walked out, they wouldn’t have a match tomorrow at Dynasty.
The Acclaimed grabbed the Gunns and pulled them back into
the ring!

Bowens blasted Colten with the Fame-Asser. Bowens cradled
Colten for a pin, but Colten shoved Bowens off him,
inadvertently knocking Bowens into Caster. Bowens smashed
Colten over his knee and went for the cover, but Austin
jumped in to break up the pin.

Austin grabbed Bowens by the ankle. Colten hit the Fame
Asser this time for a near fall on Bowens. Austin entered
the match with a running bulldog on Bowens. Caster grabbed a
blind tag. Colten racked Caster’s eyes and then forearmed
Caster to the back of the neck. Caster tried to rally back,
climbing to the top turnbuckle, but Colten shoved Caster.
The Gunns smashed Bowens with 3:10 to Yuma! Caster jumped
from the top with the Mic Drop on Austin. In all the
commotion, Colten covered Caster for a pin, and with the
assistance of some leverage from Jay White and White’s
baseball bat, got the three-count!

during AEW DYNASTY: Zero Hour at 6:30 ET on YouTube,” said

her number this time. “Tomorrow at Dynasty, I’m walking out
at TBS Champion!” said Willow.
