Kenny Omega vs. Bryan Danielson set for AEW Dynamite Grand Slam

The dream match will finally become a reality as AEW World Champion Kenny Omega will face Bryan Danielson on next Wednesday's AEW Dynamite Grand Slam from Arthur Ashe Stadium in Queens, New York.

However, the match will not be for Omega's AEW title. 

On Wednesday's Dynamite, Omega, Don Callis and Danielson again found themselves in the ring face-to-face. Danielson directly challenged Omega to a match and said that someday, it will be about the title, but right now, it's about who is better and giving the people what they want.

Callis didn't want Omega to do the match, but Omega eventually took the mic away and accepted before the two stared each other down.

The sold-out show will see a title on the line as Women's Champion Britt Baker will defend against no. 1 contender Ruby Soho. Soho got the opportunity by winning the women's Casino Battle Royale at All Out and will look to take the title away from Baker in her fourth title defense.

In another match added Wednesday, FTR will take on Darby Allin and Sting. Following Allin's win over Shawn Spears, FTR came out and got into a brawl with Allin and Sting, leaving them laying. Aided by Tully Blanchard, they wiped off Sting's face paint as Spears did to Allin during their match.

CM Punk will also do a live interview prior to his first televised match in more than seven years. He will take on Powerhouse Hobbs on the special two-hour Rampage Grand Slam show announced Wednesday.

Those matches and promo join the previously announced Cody Rhodes vs. Malakai Black and MJF vs. Brian Pillman Jr. matches.

Here's the full lineup:

  • AEW World Champion Kenny Omega vs. Bryan Danielson non-title
  • AEW Women's Champion Britt Baker vs. Ruby Soho title match
  • Cody Rhodes vs. Malakai Black
  • FTR vs. Darby Allin and Sting
