New match for AEW Rampage
A title match has been announced for Friday’s AEW Rampage on TNT.
AEW has announced that Orange Cassidy will defend the AEW All-American Title against Lee Moriarty on Rampage. This will be the first-ever match between the two.
As seen below, AEW released post-Dynamite video of Cassidy and Danhausen interrupting Lexy Nair’s interview with Stokely Hathaway. A challenge was then issued and accepted for Rampage. AEW President Tony Khan then confirmed the match in a tweet.
“Tomorrow, Feb 10 Friday Night #AEWRampage 10pm ET/9pm CT on @TNTdrama All-Atlantic Championship Match @orangecassidy vs @theleemoriarty Following this altercation, Orange Cassidy (w/ @DanhausenAD) will defend the title vs Lee Moriarty (w/ @StokelyHathaway), tomorrow on Rampage!,” Khan wrote.
