AEW President Tony Khan has announced that the AEW Heavyweight Championship will next be defended by Jon Moxley against Casino Ladder Match winner Brian Cage during Fyter Fest.
While no date has been announced for Fyter Fest, it will probably be held on June as that was the month it was held last year.
AEW has, however, already announced another pay-per-view for September. On September 5, 2020 at a yet to be announced location, AEW will be holding their next All Out pay-per-view.
During last night’s Double or Nothing, there were at least two changes made to matches due to injuries to AEW superstars.
Britt Baker was supposed to face Kris Statlander, but she was injured during the go-home episode of Dynamite. Baker was involved in a tag match with Nyla Rose versus Hikaru Shida and Kris Statlander.
During the tag match, Rose was thrown on to Baker and it was then that she injured her knee and had to be helped to the back.
It turned out that Baker had suffered a partial ACL tear along with an interior tibia fracture and compounded by a tendon tear.
Baker was replaced by Penelope Ford at Double or Nothing and she’s expected to have an announcement about her injury and the possible time table for her return on the next episode of Dynamite.
AEW President Tony Khan talked about Baker’s injury during the media scrum after Double or Nothing. According to him, they think Baker will be out for about six months.
Another AEW star who was pulled from Double or Nothing due to injury was Fenix. Fenix was supposed to be in the Casino Ladder Match.
Fenix was also injured during the last episode of Dynamite when he landed short, after a dive from the top rope. Because of this, he was pulled from the Casino Ladder Match and replaced by Joey Janela.
According to Khan, Fenix was “limping” and would not be able to give 100% so they pulled him as a precaution.
“We made a judgment call,” said Khan about Fenix. “I think he’ll be back soon.”
