AEW President Tony Khan appeared on Busted Open Radio today and announced the Jungle Boy vs. AEW World Champion Kenny Omega match for Saturday 6/26.
The match was originally announced for the Friday, June 11 Dynamite show. Jungle Boy earned the title shot by winning the Casino Battle Royale at Double Or Nothing this past Sunday. AEW then announced that he would get his title shot in “two weeks” but now he has to wait two more.
The NBA Playoffs airing on TNT has forced AEW into special Friday and Saturday timeslots. Last week’s show aired on Friday night, and this week’s show will also air tonight in the same 10pm timeslot. Next week’s show will also air on Friday, while the last two shows of the month will air on Saturday 6/19 and Saturday 6/26.
