AEW President Tony Khan subsequently announced that Brian Cage answered the call, so Wardlow will defend the title against him on Wednesday night.

As a result, the October 5 episode of AEW Dynamite will feature Cage's first singles match on AEW television since he lost to Ricky Starks on AEW Rampage: Grand Slam on October 8, 2021. He recently returned to AEW when he competed in the Grand Slam Golden Ticket Battle Royal on AEW Rampage: Grand Slam. He also wrestled on the October 3 episode of AEW Dark: Elevation.

Wardlow has been the defending champion since he beat Scorpio Sky on the July 6 episode of AEW Dynamite. He has defended the title against Orange Cassidy, Jay Lethal, Ryan Nemeth, and Tony Nese.
