Kenny Omega-Jungle Boy AEW title match moved to Saturday, June 26

AEW World Champion Kenny Omega will defend against Jungle Boy on a special Saturday edition of Dynamite on June 26th.

Tony Khan announced the news on Busted Open Radio Friday.

On the night of Double or Nothing, the match was initially announced for "two weeks" which would have put it on the weekend of June 11th. No reason for the change was given.

AEW's flagship show has been working through a myriad of schedule changes which have forced Dynamite to vacate Wednesdays in favor of the NBA playoffs on TNT.

Starting last week, AEW has five straight weeks of either Friday or Saturday Dynamites. This week and next week's show will be on Friday with two straight Saturdays rounding out the month.

Jungle Boy earned the shot by winning the Casino Battle Royale at Double or Nothing, his first AEW World title opportunity. Omega will be looking for the fifth defense of the title since winning it in December.
