News From AEW Dynamite: Faction returns, CM Punk mocked; Thunder Rosa update

The following is news from Wednesday’s 11/23 Thanksgiving Eve episode of AEW Dynamite.

The House of Black are back in AEW. The sold-out crowd at the Wintrust Arena in Chicago was hot for the faction’s return to the company. In recent weeks, vignettes have been airing on AEW television promoting the return of Malakai Black, Brody King and Buddy Matthews.

Below is an excerpt from Chris Gerics’ full Dynamite recap of how it all went down.

Post-match, Best Friends celebrate with OC and he gives a thumbs up to the crowd. They go to hug as The Factory interrupt. They walk down and say they have unfinished business. He says OC has no issues giving out shots as they cut QT’s mic. Lights go out!

JULIA HART IS ON THE RAMP!! She summons House of Black and they are in the ring! They wipe out the Best Friends as Factory watch at ringside. They attack the Factory!! They’re going after both teams now as security and wrestlers try to stop them as House of Black kill everyone. The crowd is going wild and have a huge welcome back chant. They grab a staffer on the ramp and Brody hits Dante’s Inferno on the ramp!!! Malakai has a mic and says “Members of the House of Black, please rise.” Lights go out again as we go to commercial.

Thunder Rosa relinquishes the AEW World Women’s Championship

Jamie Hayter is officially the AEW Women’s World Champion. Renee Paquette announced that Thunder Rosa and AEW had come to an agreement for Rosa to relinquish the title.

Hayter won the championship from Storm at last Saturday’s Full Gear PPV in Newark, NJ.

Rosa announced shortly before the All Out PPV that she would not be able to defend the title against Toni Storm due to a back injury. Storm won the interim Title at All Out, which was a four-way for the interim title between Storm, Hayter, Britt Baker, and Hikaru Shida.

There is no word on how long Rosa will be out of action.
