AEW news following 1/17 Dynamite: Joe retains, new ROH 6-man champs & more.


AEW presented Dynamite this Wednesday, January 17, 2024, live from the North Charleston Coliseum in North Charleston, South Carolina.

Samoa Joe retains the AEW World title

This week’s episode of AEW Dynamite saw Samoa Joe defend the AEW World championship for the first time since his victory over MJF at AEW Worlds End. He faced HOOK in the main event and beat the FTW champion via submission.

In the aftermath of the title bout, HOOK provoked Joe and received a Muscle Buster for it. Hangman Page then came to the rescue of the FTW champion, as the former AEW World champion has his eyes set on the gold. Swerve Strickland appeared with Prince Nana to show his interest in the AEW World championship again. Could a Triple Threat match be in the plans for AEW Revolution 2024 ?

New ROH 6-man tag team champions

Brian Cage & Gates Of Agony defended the ROH 6-man Tag Team titles against BULLET CLUB Gold’s Jay White & The Gunns. The leader of the Bang Bang Club ended the contest with his Blade Runner on Bishop Kaun to win the championship bout via pinfall.

Prince Nana wanted to hit Jay White with a championship belt during the match, but Anthony Bowens prevented it from happening.

First AEW Dynamite match for Deonna Purrazzo

Deonna Purrazzo made her AEW debut on January 3 at Dynamite, and had her first AEW match at Collision on January 13. This week, she was facing Anna Jay for her Dynamite in-ring debut. She defeated her 25-year-old opponent via submission with the Venus De Milo.

In an interview with Renee Paquette, The Virtuosa said she doesn’t recognize Toni Storm anymore, and she wants to prove to the AEW Women’s World champion that she is the best female wrestler. Deonna Purazzo could have a championship match quickly after his arrival in Tony Khan’s promotion, let’s see where this is going.
