AEW President, CEO, General Manager & Head Of Creative Tony Khan took to Twitter and announced Adam Cole vs Jay Lethal in a singles match for tomorrow’s AEW Dynamite on TBS.
In a 1-on-1 battle between 2 of the best wrestlers on the planet, #3 ranked @TheLethalJay (7-1 @AEW record) will take on #4 ranked @AdamColePro (6-1 #AEW record) tomorrow night LIVE on Wednesday Night Dynamite! Jay Lethal vs. Adam Cole #AEWDynamite 8pm ET/7pm CT on @TBSNetwork!
Cole had been at the top of the rankings before he unsuccessfully challenged Adam Page for the AEW World Championship at AEW Revolution.
A Rubber Match between Red Velvet and Leyla Hirsch has been also announced. Khan ruled that Kris Statlander will be banned from ringside due to her feud with Hirsch.
“Following their excellent match last week on Rampage, the Red Velvet/Leyla Hirsch rivalry is even at 1-1; we’ll see the rubber match in their trilogy tomorrow on #AEWDynamite on @TBSNetwork @ 8pm ET/7pm CT @Thee_Red_Velvet vs @LegitLeyla, + Kris Statlander is banned from ringside,” Khan wrote.
Hirsch defeated Velvet back at the Beach Break edition of AEW Dynamite on January 26, but Velvet got the win back on last week’s AEW Rampage, thanks to an assist by Statlander. Hirsch and Statlander are also at 1-1 in their singles feud as Statlander defeated Hirsch in late December at the Holiday Bash edition of AEW Rampage, while Hirsch got the win back at AEW Revolution.
