Malakai Black vs. Dustin Rhodes announced for AEW Dynamite


Malakai Black will continue his feud with the Rhodes family on AEW Dynamite. 

Black vs. Dustin Rhodes has been announced for Wednesday's Dynamite in Cincinnati, Ohio. The match was set up on AEW Rampage. Black took on Nightmare Family member Lee Johnson. After teasing hitting Johnson with a chair, Black then tempted Johnson to use the chair on him instead. Johnson refused and ultimately lost the match. 

After the Black vs. Johnson bout, Dustin ran in to make the save. He grabbed the chair to threaten Black, but Black begged off. 

Black previously defeated Cody Rhodes on the August 4 edition of Dynamite in his AEW in-ring debut. He made his first appearance for the promotion a month earlier on the July 7 Road Rager edition of Dynamite, laying out Cody's manager Arn Anderson. Black then defeated Arn's son Brock on the August 25 Dynamite. 

Cincinnati's own Jon Moxley's homecoming has also been announced for Wednesday's show. Dynamite airs at 8 p.m. Eastern time on TNT in the US.
