After losing his title to CM Punk at Sunday's Double or Nothing, now former AEW World Champion Hangman Page will be back in action on next Wednesday's Dynamite.

His opponent: David Finlay of New Japan Pro Wrestling who will be making his promotional debut as the build to this month's Forbidden Door pay-per-view picks up.

The two have a history going back to 2016 in NJPW and have faced each other in plenty of tag team and multi-person matches, but this will be their first singles encounter.

That was the only match announced for next Wednesday's Dynamite in Independence, Missouri.

Finlay, son of Fit Finlay, has been a regular in New Japan Strong in addition to Impact Wrestling where he and Juice Robinson feuded over their tag titles with Bullet Club.

The first match for the AEW and NJPW co-branded PPV on June 26th appears to have been made as Hiroshi Tanahashi appeared Wednesday to answer Punk's open challenge for the show.
