– The latest episode of Road to AEW on TNT is online, and it showcases the journey of Brandon Cutler to AEW and more. AEW Dynamite debuts on Wednesday, October 2 on TNT. The show will be held at the Capital One Arena in Washington, DC. Below are some highlights from the show.

* The episode starts with a look at wrestler Brandon Cutler, looking back at how who took time off to start a family, but his wife encouraged him not not to give up his dream. Cutler returned to wrestling in January 2018. The Young Bucks also share how they surprised Cutler with a contract to join All Elite Wrestling. Cutler talks about following your dreams and making them come true. The footage then starts building up MJF vs. Brandon Cutler, which is set for AEW Dynamite TV debut on Oct. 2.

* We then cut to Tony Schiavone in the AEW Control Center, where he hypes the recent reveal of the name of the AEW on TNT program, which is AEW Dynamite. Schiavone runs down all the previously announced matches for the card, which are as follows:

* Cody vs. Sammy Guevara
* AEW Women’s Championship Match: Riho vs. Nyla Rose
* Young Bucks & Kenny Omega vs. Chris Jericho & Mystery Partners
* Hangman Adam Page vs. PAC
* MJF vs. Brandon Cutler

* Next up is a video preview for the inaugural AEW women’s title match featuring Riho vs. Nyla Rose. The segment features new interview footage with Kenny Omega discovering the Japanese women’s wrestling talent. Riho talks about wrestling since she was 9 years old. Nyla Rose talks about how while Riho has been wrestling since she was nine years old, Nyla has had to fight her entire life to be who she is. Rose talks about how the ultimate prize is on the line to not just win the title but to become the very first AEW women’s champion.

* Conrad Thompson is in the Control Center with Conrad Thompson. They also run down some of the other matches for the Dynamite TV debut and the recently announced tag team tournament bracket to crown the first AEW tag team champions. Thompson points out that while the Young Bucks are probably the fan-favorite to win the tournament, his pick to win is the Jurassic Express (Jungle Boy and Luchasaurus). They also look at Cody Rhodes vs. Chris Jericho for the AEW World Championship at Full Gear in November. Thompson picks Cody Rhodes to win the match.

* Next up is a segment featuring Cody Rhodes who opts to talk about his scheduled Full Gear opponent Chris Jericho. Rhodes talks about how Jericho is still dangerous and the Judas Effect. Rhodes recalls how Jericho referred to his late father, WWE Hall of Famer, a “son of a b****.” Cody Rhodes stated the following in response:

“Who’s that for? Is that heat? Are you getting heat on a dead man? Is this Memphis? If it’s heat on anybody, it’s heat on me because people assume that I would corroborate such a nonsensical and carny statement, and I would never. You want to know what else it is? It is lazy. Chris Jericho is one of the greatest interview men in the history of pro wrestling, one of the greatest promos. It’s the equivalent of Elvis Presley saying, ‘Guess what, guys? I’m back from the dead. I got a new song. And it’s me farting in the microphone for 30 minutes!’ C’mon! You should do better Chris. So, let’s cut the bells and whistles. We obviously don’t need them. November 9, you’re not wrestling my dad. You’re wrestling me, and I’m the son of a b****. And I know it’s your birthday. I know you’re going to have that human hat rack, fly-by-night agent along with you, and I want him to be ready to powder your baby ass for when I am done with you. You are convinced that the revolution is happening because of you. The revolution was happening with or without you, and once again, here I am saying to you, guess what, Chris? Thank you for being part of it. But I’ll see you in Baltimore. And do me a favor. Don’t forget the belt. Again.”
