Luchasaurus will defend his AEW TNT championship against Darby Allin and Christian Cage in a triple threat match on September 23, 2023, episode of AEW Collision.
On the September 20 episode of AEW Dynamite, the match was revealed after Cage mentioned backstage that it would be like a 2-on-1 handicap match against Darby Allin. The match would become even more interesting if Luchasaurus unexpectedly betrayed Cage during the bout.
