Orange Cassidy vs Wheeler Yuta
During this Friday’s AEW Rampage, Orange Cassidy defended the title against Johnny TV. After the match, he found himself surrounded by BCC members, but the latter did not attack him. Wheeler Yuta then challenged Orange Cassidy to a match for the International Title, which was later announced by AEW as well. Will Wheeler Yuta finally end Cassidy’s reign?

Britt Baker DMD vs The Bunny
Britt Baker will face The Bunny in the last qualifier for the fatal-four-way match for the AEW Women’s Title. Hikaru Shida defeated Anna Jay to retain her position whereas Saraya defeated Skye Blue to qualify for this match. Toni Storm exercised her right to a rematch and received a bye. Now, the last woman to enter this match will be decided this Wednesday.
Jeff Jarrett vs Jeff Hardy
During the August 11 Rampage, Jeff Jarrett revealed in conjunction with the Texas Chainsaw Massacre video game, he plans to engage with Jeff Hardy in the first-ever Texas Chainsaw Massacre Deathmatch. However, he referred to the match as the Death Match Championship, but AEW is yet to confirm whether there will be any title on the line or not.

The Young Bucks vs The Gunns
The Young Bucks claimed that they are the best brother’s tag team in AEW after defeating The Hardys last week on Dynamite. However, Bullet Club Gold did not like this statement as they think this honor goes to The Gunns. As a result, they challenged the Bucks to face them in a tag team match this Wednesday.
Kenny Omega’s All-In Plan
Kenny Omega will be interviewed by Jim Ross this Wednesday where he will reveal his plans for the AEW All In 2023 PPV event later this month. It was rumored that Kenny Omega and Will Ospreay will have their trilogy match at All-In. Will it be the case? Will Omega challenge Will Ospreay for one last match?
Chris Jericho to Answer Don Callis
Don Callis has been trying to convince Chris Jericho to join his family for weeks now. Last week on Dynamite, the Jericho Appreciation Society got disbanded as all the members turned their back on Jericho due to his selfish behavior. Now, Chris Jericho will reveal his decision on whether he will be joining Don Callis’ family or not.
