Jericho-Cabana, two title matches set for next AEW Dynamite


Fresh off his pull apart brawl with Mike Tyson on this week's AEW Dynamite, Chris Jericho will return to in-ring action on next week's show against Colt Cabana.

While Jericho's opponent wasn't originally announced, AEW released a video overnight showing the two in a heated backstage confrontation with Jericho blaming Cabana for holding him back as he was about to punch Tyson.

This is a rare singles match for "Le Champion". He was last seen on the go-home show for Double or Nothing in a quick win over Pineapple Pete, his first singles match on the show since his December 18th ten minute challenge match against Jungle Boy.

Also announced:

  • TNT Champion Cody will make the first defense of his title against Jungle Boy. The latter won a battle royal on this week's show to earn the first crack at the champion who issued an open challenge to defend the title every week on Dynamite.
  • AEW Tag Team Champions Kenny Omega and Hangman Page will return to action for the first time since February's Revolution pay-per-view against Kip Sabian and Jimmy Havoc. Sabian and Havoc earned the shot with a win over SCU on this week's show.

It's believed next week's show will be taped Thursday at Daily's Place in Jacksonville, FL.
