AEW World Champion Jon Moxley appeared on the Dan Le Batard Show on Tuesday to promote Wednesday’s new episode of Dynamite.
During the interview, Moxley teased that “hardcore fans” will be pleased with a “big surprise.” Here’s what the champ had to say:
“This Wednesday is going to be an awesome show. I’m not going to spoil it, but I will tell you, there will be a big surprise. One that made me exceedingly happy, especially for the more hardcore fans who follow the scene around the world. You’ll get a big surprise. Casual fans or more first-time viewers, it will be an absolute treat to watch. There will be a kick-ass match [on Dynamite].”
It appears this surprise guest could be the one to answer Cody’s TNT Championship open challenge, but that hasn’t been confirmed. Tony Khan stated on Twitter that “one of the top independent wrestlers in the world” will challenge Cody:
Tomorrow night on #AEWDynamite, @CodyRhodes will defend the TNT Championship against one of the top independent wrestlers in the world! It’s part of a huge card and what I promise will be a great episode of #AEW Dynamite tomorrow night on TNT at 8pm ET/7pm CT! pic.twitter.com/y3F77zKYXp
