There is a new #1 contender to the AEW World Title held by Chris Jericho and that’s Darby Allin. 

During Wednesday’s episode of AEW Dynamite in Boston, MA at the Agganis Arena on TNT, All Elite Wrestling held a #1 Contender’s Match between Darby Allin and Jimmy Havoc. 

As seen on the show, Allin ended up winning it. As a result, Allin has earned the right to challenge Jericho for the AEW World Title on next week’s episode of Dynamite.

On this same show, Jericho worked a tag team match by teaming up with Sammy Guevara to take on Dustin Rhodes and “Hangman” Adam Page. 

AEW will be going head-to-head with NXT that will air at the same time on TNT. NXT is expected to load up the show as well. 

This match takes place on the October 16th episode of AEW Dynamite on TNT at the Liacouras Center in Philadelphia, PA. Also slated on this show will see the first title defense from AEW Women’s Champion Riho. 

All Elite Wrestling will be announcing more matches and segments for this episode in the coming days.

Jericho makes his next title defense on PPV when he wrestles Cody Rhodes at the upcoming Full Gear pay-per-view event next month.
