Tonight’s AEW Dynamite on TNT saw Pinnacle leader MJF take some shots at the fans in Cincinnati, which eventually led to hometown hero Brian Pillman Jr. coming out for a confrontation that later led to a brawl involving Griff Garrison and Wardlow.
Later backstage Pillman Jr. alerted Alex Marvez that he went to Tony Khan and demanded a matchup with MJF, which the company president granted for the September 22nd Dynamite Grand Slam from Arthur Ashe Stadium in Queens New York.
