Tony Khan has three shows to book next week. One of them is called Battle of the Belts II. So while it was bit surprising he booked the World title defense for Rampage, by the time this week’s Dynamite went off the air, his plan for April 13-16 was a little more clear.
Each of the three shows will have at least on championship match. Next week’s Dynamite in New Orleans will feature Jurassic Express defending the AEW Tag titles against reDRagon. Issues between Jungle Boy & Luchasaurus and Bobby Fish & Kyle O’Reilly have been simmering for weeks, and came to a boil recently when Fish & O’Reilly stole the champ’s belts. The two teams brawled tonight in the aftermath of Adam Cole stealing a victory from Christian Cage.

The Saturday Fight Night special on TNT (which will tape next Friday along with the live Rampage in Garland, Texas) gets Thunder Rosa’s first defense of the AEW Women’s championship. Nyla Rose staked her claim to that when she attacked Rosa two weeks ago.
