The AEW World Tag Team Titles will be defended in a Ladder Match on the Road Rager edition of AEW Dynamite after all.

AEW President, CEO, General Manager & Head Of Creative Tony Khan has officially pulled The Hardys from the Triple Threat, which comes after he suspended Jeff Hardy without pay earlier today due to Monday’s DUI arrest. Khan took to Twitter this afternoon and announced that the Ladder Match will now see Jurassic Express defend the AEW World Tag Team Titles against The Young Bucks.

“Wednesday Night #AEWDynamite #RoadRager Live in St. Louis @TBSNetwork @ 8pm ET/7pm CT @AEW World Tag Team Champions Jungle Boy & @luchasaurus will defend the belts vs. their longtime rivals, former champions @youngbucks in a Ladder Match LIVE tomorrow night on Dynamite on TBS!,” Khan wrote.

Khan also announced two more matches and a new segment for Wednesday’s Road Rager edition of Dynamite on TBS.

Khan took to Twitter today to announce a NJPW vs. AEW match for Dynamite. It will be AAA & ROH World Tag Team Champion Dax Harwood of FTR taking on new IWGP United States Heavyweight Champion Will Ospreay, who is also the RevPro British Heavyweight Champion and the Warrior Wrestling Champion.

“Wednesday Night #AEWDynamite #RoadRager Live in St. Louis @TBSNetwork @ 8pm ET/7pm CT After weeks of fighting between @ringofhonor World Tag Team Champions #FTR & @njpwglobal’s United Empire, 2 of the world’s best go 1-on-1! @DaxFTR vs @WillOspreay LIVE tomorrow night on TBS!,” Khan wrote.

This match comes after some of Ospreay’s United Empire teammates attacked FTR and Roppongi Vice a few weeks back. Then last week’s AEW Dynamite saw Ospreay and other United Empire members attack FTR and Trent Beretta. However, FTR and Trent then defeated Ospreay and Aussie Open on last Friday’s Rampage.

Khan also announced a Face-to-Face showdown between Jon Moxley and Hiroshi Tanahashi for Wednesday’s Dynamite. This will be the first major build to their match for the Interim AEW World Title, which will be the main event of the AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door pay-per-view on June 26.

“Ahead of the #ForbiddenDoor clash for the @AEW Interim World Championship, 2 men who’ve looked to fight each other for a long time @JonMoxley + @tanahashi1_100 will come face-to-face TOMORROW on Wednesday Night #AEWDynamite! #RoadRager Live tomorrow on @TBSNetwork @ 8pm ET/7pm CT,” Khan wrote.

Finally, the Toni Storm vs. Britt Baker feud will heat up on Dynamite as they face off in singles action.

Khan announced the bout this afternoon and wrote, “Wednesday Night #AEWDynamite #RoadRager Live in St. Louis @TBSNetwork @ 8pm ET/7pm CT Following pointed remarks on Rampage by The Doctor directed at her bitter rival, they’ll fight 1-on-1 at Road Rager! #ToniStorm vs @RealBrittBaker LIVE tomorrow night on Dynamite on TBS!

Khan also thanked fans for their continued support this evening.

“We’ve done 140 episodes of Wednesday Night #AEWDynamite so far, and tomorrow night’s lineup for #RoadRager on @TBSNetwork is shaping up to be one of the best Dynamites yet! We really appreciate everyone planning on watching Dynamite tomorrow; thank you all for supporting @AEW!,” he wrote.
