After Jon Moxley vs Kenny Omega, Cody Rhodes is set to challenge AEW World Champion Chris Jericho at the upcoming AEW Full Gear pay-per-view, as first revealed by AEW President and CEO Tony Khan to Sports Illustrated. AEW’s Full Gear pay-per-view takes place on Saturday, November 9 from the Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore, MD.
“Cody’s outstanding record in singles competition has secured him the number one contender ranking, and he will be challenging AEW world champion Chris Jericho in the first-ever pay-per-view defence of the championship on November 9 in Baltimore at Full Gear,” said Khan.
“Cody earned this opportunity over the summer as he remained unbeaten in singles bouts, scoring pins on a pair of proven veterans, defeating his older brother, the legendary wrestler Dustin Rhodes at Double or Nothing, and beating bitter rival and former partner Shawn Spears at All Out—and battling to a draw with the exciting upstart Darby Allin at Fyter Fest. This is an AEW world championship match that so many All Elite Wrestling fans are excited to witness, and I’m glad we’ll be able to present it at Full Gear“, added Khan.
