Here is your post-AEW Dynamite fight size update for Wednesday, September 21, 2022.
- Pac and Orange Cassidy renewed their rivalry on Wednesday night, as "The Bastard" defended the AEW World Championship against "Freshlt Squeezed." Pac lived up to his name, as he blasted Cassidy with the ring bell hammer to tip the scales in his favor and clinch the win.
- Like Pac, Toni Storm retained her title on Wednesday. She successfully defended the AEW Interim Women's World Championship against Britt Baker, Athena, and Serena Deeb. After the match, Saraya arrived in AEW.
- The second time was the charm for The Acclaimed. In their rematch with Swerve in our Glory, Max Caster and Anthony Bowens beat the duo to win the AEW World Tag Team Championship.

- Aubrey Edwards made history when she became the first woman to officiate an ROH World Championship match on Wednesday.
- Wheeler Yuta got into a war of words with MJF, who mocked Bryan Danielson, Jon Moxley, and William Regal. Yuta said that MJF's fiancee would leave him, just like MJF walked out on AEW. MJF dropped broadcaster Tony Schiavone with a cheap shot, and W. Morrissey helped him leave Yuta lying as well.
