AEW is set to return to Canada for the March 15, 2023, episode of Dynamite. The company will visit the Canada Life Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba, for their flagship show next week.
Tony Khan appeared on Dynamite tonight to reveal that Orange Cassidy will defend his title against Jeff Jarrett next Wednesday on Dynamite. Khan noted that the winner of the match will be referred to the AEW International Champion and not the All-Atlantic Champion.
“This match represents an important milestone for our company. I’d like to tell you about it tonight on behalf of AEW and Warner Bros. Discovery. Next week marks the fifth and final defense of the AEW All-Atlantic Championship on international soil. It is the only AEW championship ever to change hands on international soil. And next week, in partnership with Warner Bros. Discovery to support the release of ‘Shazam: Fury of the Gods’ next week in Winnipeg it will be Orange Cassidy versus Double J Jeff Jarrett for the AEW International Championship.”
Orange Cassidy successfully defended his title against Jay Lethal in the opening match of AEW Dynamite this week. We’ll have to wait to see who will emerge as the winner of the title bout next Wednesday on Dynamite.
