It has been announced that Miro will defend his TNT Championship against Fuego Del Sol on the first ever episode of AEW Rampage.
It has been a big week for Fuego Del Sol as the young star became one of the newest members of the Nightmare Family alongside Baron Black, KILyn King and Red Velvet. This good news was followed by the announcement that he will also be challenging for the TNT Championship on the debut episode of AEW Ramage.
However, there is more than just a title on the line, as if Fuego Del Sol wins, he’ll also earn an AEW contract.
Miro has held the TNT Championship since defeating Darby Allin back in May.

It has also been announced that Christian Cage will face Kenny Omega for his IMPACT World Championship on August 13th.
On the August 11th episode of Dynamite it was confirmed that Cage will challenge for the AEW World Championship at All Out. However, there was more to come.
The show opened with The Elite in action against the Sydal brothers and Dante Martin. After Omega and The Young Bucks picked up the win, Cage and Jurassic Express came to the ring.
Don Callis referred to Cage as the ‘Stamford Stooge’ before talking up Omega’s newest challenger. Cage quickly fired back saying that Omega would be in action in Pittsburgh for Rampage. The former WWE Superstar said that he’d spoken to Tony Khan and IMPACT EVP Scott D’Amore and it had been agreed that he would meet Omega at Rampage for the IMPACT World Championship.
Elsewhere on the debut episode of Rampage, Britt Baker will defend her AEW Women’s World Title against Red Velvet.
It was also recently announced that AEW Rampage will be available live for UK fans on Fite TV.
