Tony Khan took to Twitter to announce that “Hangman” Adam Page will defend the World Title against Dante Martin on tonight’s show, just days after retaining over Adam Cole in the main event of Revolution. Martin is receiving the title shot due to his 7-1 singles record, which has him ranked #2.
“Following his amazing win in the main event of Revolution, fighting @AEW World Champion Hangman @theAdamPage will defend the title vs. #2 ranked @lucha_angel1 #DanteMartin (7-1 singles record) on #AEWDynamite @ 8pm ET/7pm CT LIVE on @TBSNetwork TONIGHT! See you tonight on TBS!,” Khan wrote.
We noted earlier how Bryan Danielson and Jon Moxley are scheduled to team up on Dynamite for the first time ever tonight, with William Regal in their corner. Khan has since announced that their opponents will be JD Drake and Anthony Henry of The WorkHorsemen.
“Bonded by spilled blood + the legendary @RealKingRegal, @BryanDanielson and @JonMoxley will make their #AEW tag team debut with Regal in their corner vs. decorated tag team #TheWorkHorsemen (@RealJDDrake + @Antnyhenry) on #AEWDynamite @ 8pm ET/7pm CT on @tbsnetwork Live TONIGHT!,” Khan wrote.
