AEW World Champion Kenny Omega will be in action during tonight’s Dynamite on TNT.
AEW President, CEO, General Manager & Head Of Creative Tony Khan announced that Omega will face The Dark Order’s Alan Angels in a non-title match on tonight’s show.
This will be a rematch from the April 22, 2020 Dynamite, which saw Omega pick up the win. That match received praise from fans and wrestlers on social media. AEW hyped tonight’s match and wrote, “Angels took Kenny to the limit in his breakout match April 2020; can Alan break through and beat the champ tonight?”
Omega responded to the announcement and sent a message to his Full Gear challenger, “Hangman” Adam Page.
“No complaints from me. Take notes, Hangman,” Omega wrote.
Angels also commented on the match and wrote, “Different man then a year and a half ago…”
Angels then tweeted a photo from the 2020 match and wrote, “552 days later.”
