Cody Rhodes will defend the TNT title against Sammy Guevara at Battle of the Belts this weekend.
AEW’s Twitter confirmed the match this afternoon. It will be a rematch of their bout from the Christmas episode of Rampage, where Rhodes defeated Guevara to win the championship for a third time.
During the break on last week’s Dynamite, Guevara issued a challenge to Cody using cue cards. Cody most recently defended the title on the episode of Rampage that aired this past Friday, where he defeated Ethan Page to retain the title.
Also announced for Battle of the Belts is an AEW Women’s Championship match, with Britt Baker defending against Riho. Their feud dates back to November, with Riho winning a Black Friday Deal match where if she defeated Baker, she would get a future title match.
Battle of the Belts will take place this Saturday, January 8, at the Bojangles Coliseum in Charlotte, North Carolina.
