The first six participants in the upcoming Casino Ladder Match have now been revealed!
The match is set to take place on the on the October 6th edition of Dynamite titled AEW Dynamite: Anniversary. The winner of the match will earn a future shot at the AEW World Championship which is currently held by Kenny Omega.
Speaking ahead of Rampage on Busted Open Radio, AEW President Tony Khan had said that fans would be surprised by the star-power in the match.
It has now been confirmed that the match will feature PAC, Jon Moxley, Andrade El Idolo, Lance Archer, Orange Cassidy and ‘Big Money’ Matt Hardy.
It should perhaps be noted that PAC has previously challenged for the AEW World Championship on more than one occasion, while Jon Moxley actually held the title back in 2020. Interestingly, PAC and Orange Cassidy challenged for the World Championship together at Double or Nothing in a Triple Threat Match. The pair were ultimately defeated by Kenny Omega.
Each of the six announced wrestlers will enter the match in a pre-drawn order, before the ‘Joker’ enters last.
