With PAC's first title defense in the books Sunday, his next AEW All-Atlantic title defense is already scheduled as the inaugural champion will defend against LJ Cleary at OTT's Poetry Slam on Friday, July 22nd in Smithfield, Dublin, Ireland.
PAC successfully defended the title for the first time Sunday, submitting Shota Umino in Revolution Pro Wrestling's main event in Sheffield, UK. The match will be shown in its entirety this Tuesday on AEW Dark.
The Cleary match was announced last week with the caveat that if PAC remained champion after today, the title would be on the line. It's assumed this match will also be on a future episode of Dark or Dark: Elevation.
The two were originally supposed to meet at OTT's Scrappermania 6 but the show was canceled due to the pandemic.
PAC won the new title in a four-way over Miro, Malakai Black and Clark Connors at last month's Forbidden Door pay-per-view.
