TNT Champion Darby Allin vs. Joey Janela set for next AEW Dynamite


Darby Allin will look for the second defense of his TNT Championship on next week's AEW Dynamite as he defends against Joey Janela.

Part of the storyline of the match was set up during Beach Break as Team Taz threatened to interject while Sting promised to be there to ensure the match remains one-on-one.

Janela hasn't won a singles match in AEW since November 11th and has been mainly involved in tag team matches since then.

Only two other matches were announced for next week:

  • Chris Jericho & MJF vs. The Acclaimed: This was set up before Wednesday's tag team battle royal when Max Caster walked out and began his rap as The Inner Circle were still on the stage waiting to enter the ring area. Caster later eliminated MJF from the battle royal, but Jericho ended up picking up the win and Tag Team title shot for his team.
  • Cody Rhodes and Lee Johnson (w/ Arn Anderson) vs. Peter Avalon and Cezar Bononi: Rhodes defeated Avalon on Dynamite two weeks ago. Avalon has been working an angle with Johnson on Dark and Bononi recently came to Avalon's aid as part of it.
