Wardlow will be defending the TNT title this Wednesday on Dynamite.
Wardlow wrote “I dare someone to challenge me for the TNT title this Wednesday at the anniversary show. Someone remotely close to my level. Just show up, I’ll be waiting.”
Khan confirmed the match, with AEW’s Twitter account posting a video of Cage talking about the challenge. He said that he hasn’t been on AEW television recently because he’s in ROH and elsewhere creating a winning streak so he’ll come back to AEW for the right opportunity. He said the fans have been waiting and there’s no better time than the three-year anniversary to become the new TNT Champion. He said Wardlow is taking the path of least resistance, and that he’s the real competition.
