CM Punk vs. Max Caster, Jon Moxley vs. Jay Lethal announced for AEW Dynamite

A new signing in the women's division is also set for the show.

AEW has revealed two new matches for Wednesday's episode of Dynamite. 

Tony Khan announced on social media that Jon Moxley will face Jay Lethal on the show, also disclosing on a Wednesday Busted Open Radio appearance that CM Punk will go one-on-one with Max Caster.

"I've got something I'm very excited about planned for Max Caster tonight on Dynamite. I really like Max Caster and Anthony Bowens, the Acclaimed, very, very much," Khan said. 

Tommy Dreamer then suggested a rap battle between Caster and P.N. News but the AEW president announced a match with Punk instead. 

"While I can't do Max Caster vs. P.N. News, I can do Max Caster vs. CM Punk. I'm going to do it tonight. I can't wait to see the look on CM Punk's face when Max Caster freestyles to the ring and says whatever Max Caster is going to say to CM Punk tonight on TBS on Dynamite."

Khan continued to say that Bowens is currently out with a knee injury. He hasn't wrestled since March 9, but is not expected to be out long-term.

Khan also announced Jon Moxley vs. Jay Lethal on social media earlier Wednesday morning. He noted that the match will pit a former AEW World Champion against a former Ring of Honor World Champion. 

This week's edition of Dynamite takes place from the Colonial Life Arena in Columbia, South Carolina. 

The updated lineup for the show is as follows:

  • CM Punk vs. Max Caster
  • Jon Moxley vs. Jay Lethal
  • Darby Allin (w/Sting) vs. Andrade El Idolo (w/Jose the Assistant)
  • FTR vs. The Gunn Club (w/Billy Gunn)
  • Women's Owen Hart Foundation tournament qualifying match: The Bunny vs. a new AEW signee
