A Ring of Honor World Championship match has been added to Wednesday's AEW Dynamite Grand Slam lineup. 

In a match set up with a promo battle on this week's Rampage, Claudio Castagnoli will defend the ROH World title against Chris Jericho at Dynamite Grand Slam. 

As Castagnoli was delivering a promo on Rampage, Jericho interrupted and said that he had been a WWF, WWE, WCW, and AEW World Champion, and that he was looking for his eighth World title reign, and challenged Castagnoli. Castagnoli accepted, and the match was made official.
