Ricky Starks vs. Jay Lethal announced for February 4 AEW Rampage

Starks will defend the FTW Championship against Lethal next Friday in Chicago.


A match for the FTW Championship has been set for the February 4 edition of Rampage.

Champion Ricky Starks will defend against Jay Lethal after challenging him in an interview on tonight’s Dynamite. After Powerhouse Hobbs challenged Dante Martin to a future match, Starks brought up Lethal, saying that he hopes he enjoyed his break as he will give Lethal the opportunity to challenge for the title.

This follows an angle that took place on the January 12 edition of Dynamite. After Martin defeated Hobbs in a match, Starks helped Hobbs beat down Martin until Lethal ran in for the save. Martin has been feuding with Team Taz since the Dynamite Diamond Battle Royal in December, where Martin turned on Team Taz after originally deciding to sign with the group.

AEW will return to the Wintrust Arena in Chicago, Illinois on February 2 for both AEW Dynamite and Rampage. Already announced for Dynamite is CM Punk vs. MJF and the team of PAC & Peta El 0 M vs. Malakai Black and Brody King.
