One of the most highly anticipated weeks of 2021 for All Elite Wrestling occurs as they will hold two events called "Grand Slam," which will include editions of Dynamite on Wednesday and Rampage on Friday from Arthur Ashe Stadium, home of the U.S. Open tennis tournament, in Queens, New York.
On Dynamite, the featured match on the show will be AEW Heavyweight champion Kenny Omega taking on former WWE Heavyweight champion Bryan Danielson. After Omega defeated Christian Cage in the main event of All Out at the beginning of September, Danielson made his AEW debut and confronted "The Best Bout Machine."
Then on Rampage, CM Punk wrestles on live national television for the first time since January 2014 when he takes on Powerhouse Hobbs.
During the Sept. 8 edition of Dynamite, "The American Dragon" had a segment with Omega that ended with him putting the champion in his armbar submission. Last week on Dynamite, Danielson challenged Omega to a non-title match — which was accepted.
