CM Punk's first match as AEW World Champion has been announced for Dynamite.
Tony Khan revealed on Wednesday that Punk will team with FTR to face Max Caster and the Gunn Club on the show. The match comes after Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler came out to celebrate with Punk following his title victory at Double or Nothing.
In an interview with ESPN last week, Punk praised the ROH World Tag Team Champions.
"They're f---ing artists," Punk said of FTR. "People who don't understand pro wrestling will read that and groan. I understand that. But we're operating on a different level and it's OK not to understand it. We get it and I appreciate the s--- out of both those guys."
Wednesday's edition of AEW Dynamite will take place from the Kia Forum in Los Angeles. The updated lineup for the show is as follows:
- AEW World Champion CM Punk & ROH World Tag Team Champions FTR (Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler) vs. Max Caster & The Gunn Club (Colten & Austin Gunn)
- Darby Allin, Jungle Boy, Luchasaurus, Matt Hardy, and Christian Cage vs. Hikuleo, Bobby Fish, Kyle O’Reilly, and The Young Bucks
- Britt Baker & Jamie Hayter vs. Ruby Soho & Toni Storm
- Jon Moxley vs. Daniel Garcia
