Report: Lance Archer Vs. Eddie Kingston Was The Standby Match On AEW: Dynamite

They confronted each other after the show...

To close out the special "Winter Is Coming" edition of Dynamite, Kenny Omega and Don Callis ran way like scolded dogs, as JR would say, with the AEW World Championship. The two men fled past a stunned Tony Khan and other AEW staff but were briefly stopped by Alex Marvez. Callis then told the backstage interviewer they can found out what just happened on Tuesday's edition of IMPACT. 

Before Dynamite went off the air, though, Eddie Kingston suddenly joined the commentary table and told JR he wanted Lance Archer "right now." The War King wasn't shown on TV and the episode went off the air before The Mad King could say anything else. 

While the fans watching on TV didn't witness it, Kingston and The Murderhawk Monster did have a brief confrontation in the ring before the spectators at Daily's Place headed home. 

Dave Meltzer reported on Wrestling Observer Radio that Kingston appeared at the commentary table after the main event because The War King vs. Lance Archer was the standby match if the main event and post-main event angle went short. 

Meltzer said: "It was the standby match and in fact, they had no time for the standby match."
