AEW is taking next Wednesday night off for Christmas. Thus, the company is loading up the first episode of the new year on January 1st.
Darby Allin vs. Cody Rhodes has been confirmed by AEW for the Dynamite episode on New Year’s Day.
This is a rematch from the AEW Fyter Fest event back in June where the two stars wrestled to a time limit draw.
The contest was set up when Allin offered to help Cody with The Butcher and The Blade. There was a catch though as he would only help him if Rhodes would give him a rematch.
The episode airs from Daily’s Place in Jacksonville, FL. This will be the Anniversary Edition of the show. Kris Statlander vs. AEW Women’s Champion Riho with the title on the line has also been confirmed for the show.
Cody and Allin took to Twitter to hype their rematch, as seen here:
Cody: “Odd pairing, but immensely enjoyed tagging together. Looking forward to our rematch against one another January 1st. Homecoming”
Allin: “January 1st. Cody vs. Darby 2. @AEWrestling @AEWonTNT #ImWithAEW”
