That’s how the big shows go. Titles are what matter the most in wrestling and that has been the case for a very long time now. Fans understand that the wrestlers who hold championships are some of the most important stars in the promotion and a title change means a lot. That was the case this week, as multiple titles changed hands on one of the biggest nights of the year.
AEW held its annual Grand Slam episode of Dynamite this week, where three titles changed hands. First up, Chris Jericho used a low blow to defeat Claudio Castagnoli for the Ring Of Honor World Title. Next, the Acclaimed defeated Swerve In Our Glory to win the Tag Team Titles. Finally, Jon Moxley defeated Bryan Danielson to win the vacant AEW World Title. All-Atlantic Champion Pac successfully defended his title against Orange Cassidy and Toni Storm retained the Interim Women’s Title over Britt Baker, Athena and Serena Deeb.
Opinion: That is the kind of pay per view level amount of title changes that you almost never see on television so this was about as good as it can get for such a show. AEW knew that they needed to do a lot to make the show feel special and that is exactly what they did here. Title changes can make a show feel important and they did it in multiple situations over two hours so well done.
