Kazuchika Okada & Adam Copeland Are Crowned New Champions On AEW Dynamite

AEW has picked up a ton of momentum in recent weeks, generating massive buzz with Sting’s retirement, in addition to the major signings of Will Ospreay, Kazuchika Okada, and Mercedes Mone. After AEW did some Big Business in Boston last week, Tony Khan booked a PPV-worthy Dynamite in Toronto this week that saw two championships change hands: Kazuchika Okada is the new AEW Continental Champion, and “The Rated R Superstar” Adam Copeland finally beat Christian Cage once and for all to become the AEW TNT Champion.




AEW Wastes No Time With The Rainmaker

It’s safe to say that AEW has rightfully strapped a rocket to the back of Kazuchika Okada. Within a few short weeks of debuting on Dynamite as a member of The Elite alongside The Young Bucks, The Rainmaker is already a champion in AEW.

With Kenny Omega and “Hangman” Adam Page out, adding Kazuchika Okada to The Elite gives the AEW faction new life.

He challenged Eddie Kingston for the AEW Continental title in the opening bout of the night. It was a stiff, hard-hitting match, as expected from these two, with Kingston giving it his all to defeat his opponent. He came up short, as Okada showed why he had been NJPW’s Ace for all those years. A Rainmaker put Kingston away, giving Okada the win and the gold.


The Rated R Superstar Is A 2-Time TNT Champion

The championship matches didn’t end there, as “The Rated R Superstar” Adam Copeland took on AEW TNT Champion Christian Cage in an “I Quit” match in the main event of the night. Their hometown of Toronto was on fire, as Copeland and Cage battled around the arena, making the crowd go wild with their hockey-filled antics.

Adam Copeland has been in the spotlight for a long time, with a career spanning over 25 years!

Tables, ladders, and chairs were obviously included as part of the violence. The Patriarchy intefered during the match, but Daniel Garcia and Matt Menard came out to even the odds. The ending came when Copeland used a spiked baseball bat to Christian’s nether regions, with Cage quitting before Copeland could get another hit in to the head.


It was a fun ending to an exciting Dynamite. While AEW has experienced a roller-coaster ride in terms of quality, it seems like the company is on the upswing. Can Tony Khan keep up the momentum with his new champions?
