TNT title match added to AEW Fyter Fest

A TNT title match has been added to Wednesday’s Fyter Fest card.

Tony Khan announced this afternoon that Wardlow would be defending the title in his first defense against Orange Cassidy. Additionally, Chris Jericho will appear on Wednesday's show.

“In 2022 Wardlow’s won the #FaceOfTheRevolution, became #AllElite at #DoubleOrNothing, + became TNT Champion last week! Now @RealWardlow’s issued an open challenge for #AEWDynamite & his opponent is red hot fresh off back-to-back tv wins,” Khan wrote on Twitter.

Wardlow won the TNT title last week on Dynamite, defeating Scorpio Sky. Orange Cassidy defeated Ethan Page at Blood and Guts back on June 29, then followed that up with a win on Rampage last Friday, defeating Tony Nese.

Jericho will appear on the show after orchestrating an attack on Ruby Soho last week on Dynamite, with Jericho instructing Tay Conti to slam a car door on Soho's hand. This led Soho's friend Eddie Kingston to challenge Jericho to another match on Rampage. The two will meet at week two of Fyter Fest in a barbed wire death match, with members of the Jericho Apprecation Society locked in a shark cage suspended above the ring.

Here is the updated lineup for week one of Fyter Fest, which kicks off Wednesday:

  • AEW World Tag Team Champions The Young Bucks defend against Keith Lee & Swerve Strickland and Powerhouse Hobbs & Ricky Starks in a three-way match
  • Non-title match: AEW Interim World Champion Jon Moxley vs. Konosuke Takeshita
  • TNT title: Wardlow defends against Orange Cassidy
  • Claudio Castagnoli vs. Jake Hager
  • Serena Deeb vs. Anna Jay
  • Luchasaurus in action
  • Christian Cage speaks
  • Chris Jericho will speak
