AEW Dynamite notes: 3 Title matches on Rampage, MJF vs. Jericho, Paul Wight

Originally published at AEW Dynamite notes: 3 Title matches on Rampage, MJF vs. Jericho

AEW’s Rampage program debuts on August 13th and there are three championship matches scheduled for the show. The first match to air on Rampage will be Kenny Omega defending the IMPACT World Championship against Christian Cage. Omega and Cage are also set to meet at All Out on September 5th for the AEW World Championship. Joining the Rampage debut lineup is a TNT Title match between Miro and Fuego Del Sol. Headlining the 8/13 show is Britt Baker putting her Women’s World Title on the line against Red Velvet.

In the main event of the 8/11 Dynamite, Chris Jericho defeated Wardlow and successfully made it through the ‘labours’ to get his match with MJF. Next week on Dynamite, Jericho and MJF will go one-on-one but per MJF’s rules, Jericho cannot use his ‘Judas’ theme song on the way to the ring and he cannot use the ‘Judas Effect’ finisher.

In addition to MJF versus Chris Jericho on next week’s Dynamite, here’s the remainder of the announced lineup for the show:

  • Sting & Darby Allin vs. 2.0 (Matt Lee & Jeff Parker)
  • Sammy Guevara vs. Shawn Spears (Guevara to make a “major” announcement)
  • AEW World Tag Team Championships: The Young Bucks (Matt & Nick Jackson) (c) vs. Jungle Boy & Luchasaurus
  • Ricky Starks and Brian Cage faceoff

QT Marshall and The Factory (Aaron Solo & Nick Comoroto) had an in-ring segment with Tony Schiavone. QT instructed Comoroto to drag Schiavone’s son Chris into the ring and he proceeded to hit Chris with a ‘Cutter’. This led to Paul Wight coming out and as he and The Factory stood across from one another, QT tossed Aaron Solo into Wight and Wight gave Solo a chokeslam.

You mess with @tonyschiavone24 and his family, you deal with his #AEWDarkElevation broadcast partner, @PaulWight. #TheFactory found out the hard way.
