A TNT Championship match has been announced for the March 9 AEW Dynamite.
In a bout set up in an angle that played out on social media and Friday's AEW Rampage, Sammy Guevara will defend the TNT title against Scorpio Sky.
AEW president Tony Khan tweeted that he had offered Sky a spot in Sunday's ladder match for a TNT title show at Revolution, but that Sky had declined. Khan said that he then made a deal with Sky's manager Dan Lambert, in which Sky would receive a shot at the TNT title on Dynamite, provided that another member of Lambert's American Top Team, Paige VanZant, signed with AEW.
Khan tweeted that Lambert had accepted the deal, but that Khan would not make an official announcement regarding VanZant's signing until her signature was on a contract.
Sky and Lambert appeared in a promo segment on Rampage, where Lambert touted Sky's nearly one-year run without taking a singles defeat. It was then announced that VanZant would sign her contract at Sunday's Revolution pay-per-view.
Guevara retained the TNT title on Rampage, defeating Andrade El Idolo and Darby Allin in a three-way.
