Tony Khan announces AEW TNT title match, 'major star' signing Sunday


The winner of this Sunday's Face of the Revolution ladder match at AEW Revolution will get their TNT title shot on this Wednesday's Dynamite.

While the title shot stipulation for the winner of Sunday's match was already known, the date of that title shot against champion Darby Allin was not. Tony Khan announced the news on Thursday's AEW Uncensored podcast.

Former TNT Champion Cody Rhodes, Scorpio Sky, Penta El Zero M, Lance Archer and Max Caster are all in the match with a surprise entrant to be announced on Sunday. Archer and Caster had to win matches in order to qualify with Caster picking up his victory last night.

Khan also added that there will literally be a brass ring the winner has to pull down in order to win. That's a nod to Vince McMahon's infamous 2014 statement on Steve Austin's podcast.

Khan also doubled down on Paul Wight's reveal on Wednesday's Dynamite about a "Hall of Fame worthy" signing announced this Sunday. Khan said it will not be the surprise in the ladder match and that it's a "major, huge, huge star in the world of wrestling: that will be signing a multi-year deal."
