At the last minute. There are all kinds of things that can go wrong with a wrestling show, with some of them coming up at the last minute. While the show might seem like everything is going according to plan, the plan that you see executed might not be exactly how things were supposed to go. That was the case this week, as some last minute changes had to be made.

This week’s edition of AEW Dynamite saw Nick Jackson defeat Claudio Castagnoli and Brian Cage in a triple threat match to become the new #1 contender to the International Title. According to Wrestling Observer Radio, the match was added later in the afternoon, with Jackson not expecting to wrestle. There is no word on what the original plans were, or why Jackson was added so late. In addition, Rey Fenix was not cleared to face Jeff Jarrett until late in the afternoon, though the match did ultimately take place.

It was a busy night. Check out what happened on the show:

Opinion: The show did feel a bit off, but what matters most is the fact that they got everything together as well as they did. The last minute changes are not the best sign, but as long as they get everything on the show and it winds up working out, things could have been a lot worse. Jackson didn’t seem to be that far out of his normal place, despite not wrestling his usual style.
