AEW Dynamite August 25, 2021 Preview
AEW Dynamite this week is live from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and has a buzz around it due to a groundbreaking return. Was it the return of Juventud Guerrera? No, it was CM Punk. Obviously.
1. What is CM Punk going to do?
Announced for the show is CM Punk’s first appearance on Dynamite. After his return promo on AEW Rampage, fans are excited for what’s next for Punk. His first match is announced for AEW All Out against Darby Allin. We’re not going to see him have a match, but will he get physical for the first time in years?

I’d love to see a promo battle between Punk and Sting/Allin. Don’t put money on Punk doing anything physical though; AEW will want to save the action for even closer to All In.
2. Who will face the Young Bucks?
We know that The Young Bucks will defend their tag titles in a steel cage at All Out. The real question is against who? Jurassic Express punched their ticket to the tournament finals on Rampage by beating Private Party. On Dynamite tonight, Varsity Blondes will tussle with the Lucha Bros for the other finals spot.

The early money is on the Lucha Bros advancing, due to being the more experienced team. It would be a big win for the Varsity Blondes, but that would rob us of a Young Bucks-Lucha Bros redux after their great match at All Out 2019. Give us a rerun of that in a steel cage, please. Expect the Lucha Bros to advance to the finals.
3. Will we care about the QT Marshall-Paul Wight Feud
I like Paul Wight as much as the next person. He’s a legend of the business and will be big for a guy like QT Marshall to feud with. I just don’t see the appeal of QT Marshall.
As announced on #AEWDark, the #GunnClub (@RealBillyGunn/@coltengunn/@theaustingunn) will battle #TheFactory (@realmmarshall1/@Mr_Freakbeast/@aaronsolow) TOMORROW NIGHT on #AEWDynamite at 8/7c LIVE on @tntdrama + @PaulWight will be a special guest commentator to keep an eye on QT! pic.twitter.com/PvhxKgdLcW

On the show, QT Marshall teams with Factory teammates Nick Comoroto & Aaron Solo to face The Gunn Club. It stands to reason that Wight will show up ahead of their All Out battle. Can AEW do anything to get us to invest in this feud? Let’s hope so.
