AEW Battle of the Belts III set for August in Grand Rapids, Michigan

AEW's August 5th debut in the city will also feature a live Rampage.

AEW will make its Grand Rapids, Michigan, debut on Friday August 5th for a live edition of Rampage and a taping for Battle of the Belts III.

While the air date wasn't announced for the latter, it's assumed to be on Saturday, August 6th on TNT.

Debuting in January, the one-hour specials typically feature three title matches that have included the AEW Women's, TNT, TBS, ROH World title and FTW belts in the past.

After the first BoB was live, April's edition was taped the night before it aired. That show, headlined by Sammy Guevara vs. Scorpio Sky for the TNT title, and Thunder Rosa vs. Nyla Rose for the Women's title, dropped 25% in viewership from the first edition.

Tickets go on sale a week from this Friday.

As of now, Grand Rapids will be the sixth new city AEW debuts in over the next three months which also includes Los Angeles; Ontario, CA; Detroit; Savannah, GA; and Worcester, MA. 

It's also the first August date announced on their schedule.
