Before Chris Jericho defends his AEW World Championship title at the upcoming Full Gear pay-per-view, he will have to defend his title in Philadelphia in the coming weeks.

AEW announced that a No. 1 contenders match for the AEW World Championship between Darby Allin and Jimmy Havoc will take place on the October 9 episode of AEW Dynamite. The winner of that match will take on Jericho for the AEW title on the October 16 episode of Dynamite in Philadelphia.

Allin wrestled Cody Rhodes to a 20-minute time limit draw at Fyter Fest back in June and did pick up a win over CIMA on the October 2 episode of AEW Dynamite in a match that wasn't aired on TNT. Despite not having the best win-loss record in AEW, Havoc does own a win over Allin at the All Out show in August when he defeated Allin and Joey Janela.

Already announced for the October 9 episode of Dynamite is a tag team match featuring Hangman Page and Dustin Rhodes against Page and Sammy Guevara. Fightful will have live coverage of AEW Dynamite and have a post-show podcast.
