After outlasting Matt Hardy in a falls count anywhere match on Wednesday's AEW Dynamite, Darby Allin will be in action once again on this coming week's Dynamite, defending his gold against Jungle Boy.
The match was made after Allin tweeted Tony Khan, and asked him to select any contender from the present top five. Those contenders included Adam Page, Jon Moxley, Jungle Boy, Cody Rhodes, and Powerhouse Hobbs.
