FTW Title Match & More Official For AEW Rampage
Title to be defended on AEW Rampage
The FTW Championship will be on the line on Friday's episode of Rampage from the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.
It was announced during Dynamite that HOOK will defend the title against Lee Moriarty. The match was first teased last week after HOOK interrupted a Moriarty backstage interview, during which The Firm member declared he wanted to challenge for a championship.
The quarterfinal match in the AEW World Title Eliminator Tournament between Ricky Starks and Lance Archer was also rescheduled for Friday's Rampage. The match was originally set to take place last week but Archer attacked Starks backstage before the match. The winner will face Brian Cage in the semifinal, likely on the Full Gear pre-show, before the final on the pay-per-view.
Athena will go one-on-one with Madison Rayne on Rampage too.

- Ricky Starks vs. Lance Archer - AEW World Title Eliminator Tournament
