The TNT Championship tournament will kick off next week and will keep going the week afterward with Lance Archer vs. Colt Cabana on the Wednesday, April 15th AEW Dynamite in a quarterfinal matchup.
This will be Archer’s second AEW match as he dominated Marko Stunt in his Wednesday debut. Since making his promotional in-ring debut a month ago, Cabana (pictured above) has gone 2-0 in singles competition with wins over Peter Avalan and Brandon Cutler in two AEW Dark matches.
Cabana and Archer have had just one singles match in 2015 for NOAH, a DQ win for Cabana that went under two minutes. They have worked against each other frequently in various tag teams.
Cody will face Shawn Spears on next week’s Dynamite while dates for Darby Allin vs. Sammy Guevara and Dustin Rhodes vs. Kip Sabian have yet to be announced. The eight man tournament will culminate at the currently scheduled May 23rd Double or Nothing pay per view in Las Vegas.
The creation of the TNT Championship was announced on Monday.
