What Wrestling Should You Watch This Week (2/3/20)

Wednesday: AEW Dynamite

(Airs at 8PM EST on TNT and FITE.)

The combination of Yuka Sakazaki’s TV debut (even if it’s against Britt Baker) and Cody finally receiving his ten lashes means Dynamite this week is a must-watch for me. Who is the wild horny person who decided on this whipping stipulation? And when can I shake their hand?— LB Hunktears

Friday: Dragon Gate Truth Gate 2020

(Streams at 4:15AM EST on Dragon Gate Network.)

Dragon Gate returns to Korakuen Hall for Naruki Doi’s first defense of the Open the Dream Gate Title, Dragon Gate’s top belt, against KZY, Dragon Gate’s top lovable stoner. Elsewhere on the card, R.E.D. defends their Open the Dream Gate Title against the unlikely trio of Strong Machine J, Yosuke Santa Maria and Keisuke Okuda.— Nigel Spudes

Friday: AIW Built to Last

(Streams at 7:30 PM EST on IWTV.)

Absolute Intense Wrestling makes its IWTV streaming debut with Built to Last, a show with major implications for their WrestleMania week card. Scheduled for the show are two scramble matches, one a six man affair and the other a four team spectacle, for a shot at the Absolute and Tag Team Championships respectively. The big match on the card sees “Filthy” Tom Lawlor face Jeff Cobb, who has been working matches beyond his ROH dates, as he is currently without a contract. AIW does a good job of showcasing local, homegrown talent alongside the touring acts that they bring in, which is a dynamic that will be on display when former WWE star Swoggle wrestles Cleveland’s own Super Oprah, which is an early pick for banger of the month.— Colette Arand

Saturday: AAA Nacemos Para Luchar

(Streams at 9PM EST on Twitch.)

The second AAA show of the year after a 42 day break looks to follow up the first’s forward momentum. A trios match from AAA’s revitalized minis division opens the show. Fourth on the card, in what’s already my match of the night before it happens, Hijo del Vikingo leads Puma King and Rey Horus against Taurus, Texano Jr. and Rey Escorpión. The semi-main teases a likely return of Psycho Clown’s Los Psycho Circus trio, and the main event sees the Lucha Brothers enlist Dr. Wagner Jr. against Rush, LA Park and Bestia del Ring.— Nigel Spudes

Sunday: New Japan The New Beginning in Osaka

(Streams at 2AM EST on New Japan World.)

This is a pretty huge show with some major title defenses. Hiromu Takahashi vs Ryu Lee in their first singles meeting since their match that put Hiromu out of action for over a year. Jon Moxley vs Minoru Suzuki in, if their preview tag matches were anything to go by, their last match ever before they fuck, marry AND kill each other. Tetsuya Naito defending both his belts against the absolute bastard KENTA, who killed the vibe after his major Wrestle Kingdom victory. We’d better get that fucking LIJ rollcall at the end of the night, or else New Japan is in big trouble with me.— LB Hunktears
