Jungle Boy vs. Kassidy, Hirsch vs. Statlander set for AEW Rampage


Two new matches were added to Saturday's Holiday Bash edition of AEW Rampage as Jungle Boy will take on Isiah Kassidy while Kris Stalander will face Leyla Hirsch.

In a backstage promo, Matt Hardy made it clear he wants Private Party to take Jurassic Express' no. 1 contender spot and feels that if Kassidy can beat Jungle Boy next week, that should happen. Jungle Boy and Luchasaurus helped make the save for Tag Team Champions Lucha Bros last Friday on Rampage, nodding to a future encounter between the two.

Statlander and Hirsch will collide for the first time ever in AEW and for the first time since an indie show in April 2019. This will be Hirsch's first AEW singles match since October while Statlander is coming off a singles win over the debuting Marina Shafir on AEW Dark earlier this month.

The two matches join the already announced TNT title match between champion Sammy Guevara and former champion Cody Rhodes, and Hook vs. Bear Bronson.

Here's the full lineup for Christmas night that is being taped after the Holiday Bash edition of Dynamite in Greensboro, North Carolina:

  • TNT Champion Sammy Guevara vs. Cody Rhodes title match
  • Hook vs. Bear Bronson
  • Jungle Boy vs. Isiah Kassidy
  • Leyla Hirsch vs. Kris Statlander
