In the grand traditions of ‘fighting champions’ in wrestling, Cody declared he would defend his newly-won TNT Championship each week on Dynamite against a new contender.
Following his submission victory over Marq Queen this week, we found out the identity of his opponent for Fyter Fest.
Jake Hager is the man due to get the shot after attacking Arn Anderson and orchestrating an Inner Circle attack on Cody, Matt Hardy and Private Party. Cody offered the Bellator MMA fighter the shot as Dynamite went off the air.
Fyter Fest will take place over two nights on the 1st and 8th July. It will be broadcast in the usual Dynamite timeslot in the US and presumably, the same internationally.
All AEW titles will be defended across the two nights. The current card is as follows:
- AEW World Championship Match: Jon Moxley vs. Brian Cage
- TNA Championship Match: Cody vs. Jake Hager
- AEW Tag Team Championship Match: Kenny Omega & Hangman Page vs. Best Friends
