New AEW Signing To Challenge Wardlow For TNT Championship

Another challenger for Wardlow

One of All Elite Wrestling's newest signings has already received a title match.

It was announced during AEW Dynamite that Matt Taven will challenge Wardlow for the TNT Championship on Friday's special live edition of Rampage. This comes only two weeks after The Kingdom made their surprise debuts, attacking ROH World Tag Team Champions FTR. Wardlow and Samoa Joe made the save which led to the TNT Title match being booked. 

The Kingdom have been signed to full-time deals by AEW since their debuts. They will reportedly be with the promotion for the next three years. 

Wardlow has been TNT Champion since early July. He most recently defended the gold on the October 5 edition of Dynamite, defeating Brian Cage. 

Also set for Rampage is Blackpool Combat Club's Claudio Castagnoli and Wheeler Yuta vs. 2point0, and Tay Melo vs. Madison Rayne.

Check out the lineup below:

  • Wardlow (c) vs. Matt Taven - TNT Championship
  • Claudio Castagnoli & Wheeler Yuta vs. 2point0 (Matt Menard & Angelo Parker)
  • Tay Melo vs. Madison Rayne
