Tonight’s AEW Dynamite from Milwaukee featured Malakai Black taking on Penta Oscuro in singles-action, with the winner advancing to the fatal-four way matchup at Sunday’s Forbidden Door, which will crown the first ever AEW All Atlantic championship.
The bout was a competitive back-and-forth affair, but in the end Black would pick up the victory after connecting with his Black Mass finisher. He will now join Miro, PAC, and NJPW’s Tomohiro Ishii in the matchup.
