This Friday’s AEW Rampage officially has their main event set, with Orange Cassidy being booked to take on Lee Johnson in defense of his All-Atlantic Championship. Airing prior on AEW’s social media, the match was set up during a backstage segment, which would eventually be broadcasted on Wednesday’s Dynamite.

Also announced for Friday’s rampage will be an open challenge from Nyla Rose for “her” AEW TBS Championship — Jade Cargill is still the official champion despite Rose stealing the belt. A bout between Cargill and Rose has been booked for the title for Full Gear, scheduled for November 19, 2022.

In other happenings this Friday, Jungle Boy will have a face-to-face with Christian Cage and Luchasaurus. Jungle Boy said on Dynamite that he wants to challenge either Christian or Luchasaurus, however, he wants to make the challenge in person.
