A balance between past and present, looking to the future, is the ideal for any luchistic promotion. Y the handling that for now AEW is doing of its legends brings it closer to this archetype. There we have the case of Sting, far removed from the image of saboteurs of rising talents that in recent months veterans such as Edge, Suwama or Keiji Mutoh have been won by recent triumphs, since “The Icon”, in his return to the rings, he won’t even star in Revolution 2021.
But if the powerbomb that the “Stinger” received, along with the realization of an explosive “Deathmatch” between Kenny Omega and Jon Moxley, stole the most recent episode of AEW Dynamite, maybe another ad went a bit unnoticed: Tully Blanchard will fight in two weeks.
► Almost three decades later, the «Horsemen» returns to the ring
Very involved in the rivalry that FTR have with Jurassic Express, the fact that these form a third has justified that Blanchard will also compete next Wednesday. Although Marko Stunt really counts as a half rival due to his size, hence the relative balance of forces.
Blanchard has shown to be still in shape, collaborating even in the occasional Piledriver with FTR, but this It will be the first time in 14 years that we have seen him take part in an official combat. And curiously, that last implication was against Dustin Rhodes, during the NWA Legends Fan Fest event in 2007; both “The Natural” and Billy Corgan’s old company, closely linked to AEW.
In addition to said combat, Dynamite will present on March 3 the media Cody Rhodes and Red Velvet vs. Shaquille O’Neal and Jade Cargill. Meanwhile, for next week, the following menu is scheduled.
Hangman Page vs. Isiah Kassidy (Matt Hardy)
FINAL QUARTERS OF THE FEMALE ELIMINATORY TOURNAMENT

Ricky Starks and Brian Cage vs. Varsity Blondes
Jake Hager vs. Brandon cutler
