ROH World title match announced for AEW Rampage


The Ring of Honor World title is set to be defended on next week’s Rampage.

In addition to the ROH World title match between Claudio Castagnoli and Dustin Rhodes, another match in the AEW World Trios Tag Team title tournament will take place, with the House of Black (Malakai Black, Brody King, and Buddy Matthews) taking on The Dark Order (Evil Uno, John Silver, and Alex Reynolds).

On Friday’s Rampage, Castagnoli opened the show by coming out and issuing an open challenge, saying he feels better with his gear on in the ring. Rhodes responded, coming out and saying that they are both alike that until recently, both have never held a world championship. Castagnoli accepted the challenge, saying they will meet next week. AEW’s social media confirmed the match for Rampage.

The trios tournament will continue on to next week’s Rampage. Whoever wins between The Dark Order and The House of Black will move on to face Best Friends, who defeated The Trustbusters on Friday’s Rampage to advance to the semifinals.

Lineup for Friday’s Rampage:

  • ROH World Championship: Claudio Castagnoli vs. Dustin Rhodes
  • AEW Trios Tag Team title tournament: The Dark Order vs. The House of Black
