The next challenger for the AEW TNT Championship has been identified.
AEW has officially announced that, on the next episode of AEW Dynamite, the AEW TNT Champion Darby Allin will place his championship on the line against “The Bad Boy” Joey Janela.
In a video released by Janela and posted on the AEW Twitter account, The Bad Boy told the AEW TNT Champion that he was back.
“The future TNT Champion is going to be a bad, bad boy,” said Janela.
Janela also talked about the match on his own Twitter, declaring that it would be a “straight” wrestling match with “no weapons, no Team Taz, No STING”. He also said that his ally and tag team partner Sonny Kiss wouldn’t be accompanying him for the match.
“This is between two guys who love professional wrestling and with one of the greatest prizes at stake, I want absolutely no distractions,” he declared.
Allin himself responded to the news of the match by retweeting the image graphic and recalling that when he debuted in AEW, Janela was considered a main eventer.
“I want that Janela back,” declared Allin. “If you still feel like you got what it takes, bring all you got next week.”
