KENTA & Omega vs. Moxley & Archer is officially booked for AEW Dynamite

New, 21 comments

After NJPW star KENTA made a shocking appearance on last night’s AEW Dynamite to ambush Jon Moxley, a tag team Lights Out match was teased for next week’s (Feb. 10) card.

AEW has now made it official, though it’s technically not an unsanctioned Lights Out match:

Moxley is listed as the IWGP United States Champion in the graphic. He will team up with Lance Archer to take on KENTA and AEW world champion Kenny Omega in a ‘Falls Count Anywhere - Anything Goes’ match. Perhaps the kind of violence that was on display in Full Gear 2019’s Lights Out match between Moxley and Omega is a bit too much for television, so the match type was slightly altered.

It really doesn’t matter what they call it. That’s a hell of a main event right there, and a great sign of things to come in the future whenever the deal between AEW and NJPW can really accelerate.

Next week’s Dynamite will also include Chris Jericho & MJF vs. The Acclaimed, as well as Darby Allin defending the TNT championship against Joey Janela. Sting has promised to have Darby’s back if Team Taz shows up.
