Will Hobbs needed an opponent for his next TNT Championship match, so AEW went the route of an open challenge. The Last Real Man answered the call.
Silas Young is stepping up to battle Hobbs for TNT gold on the April 12 edition of Dynamite in Milwaukee, WI.

Milwaukee is the hometown of Young, so it makes sense in that regard. Also, Young is a two-time ROH TV champion. It would be pretty cool if the Last Real Man can execute the Pee Gee Waja Plunge on Hobbs.

Unfortunately for Young, he is entering off a loss to Shane Taylor on ROH TV. (Hey, Tony Khan, please book Hobbs versus Taylor one day soon. Thanks!) A title win for Young on this evening is unlikely, but the least he can do is knock that smug grin off QT Marshall’s face.
The lineup for Dynamite on April 12 includes:
- TNT Championship: Will Hobbs (c) vs. Silas Young
- AEW International Championship: Orange Cassidy (c) vs. Buddy Matthews
- Chris Jericho vs. Keith Lee
- Darby Allin vs. Swerve Strickland
- Jon Moxley & Claudio Castagnoli vs. Brandon Cutler & Michael Nakazawa
- Riho & Skye Blue vs. Ruby Soho & Toni Storm
Does this card make you excited for Wednesday night Dynamite?
