Darby Allin is set for his 5th title defence in four weeks.
AEW has announced that Allin will put his TNT Championship on the line against Dark Order's 10 on the April 28 episode of Dynamite. This comes after Allin took to social media and lamented the fact that the last time he defeated a Dark Order member, John Silver dislocated his shoulder. This is not a win that he is happy about. As a result, he laid down the challenge to 10, as he was Brodie Lee's handpicked protege.
10 accepted the offer and warned Allin that the last time they stepped in the ring together he wasn't part of Dark Order or under Brodie's guidance, so to expect a tough fight. 10's record this year sits at 7 wins and 1 loss.
Darby successfully defended his belt last week against Jungle Boy after asking Tony Khan to pick any Top 5 ranked wrestler to face him. The full card for the upcoming edition of Dynamite can be seen below.

Last time I stepped in the ring with Darby Allin I wasn’t 10, I wasn’t Dark Order, but most importantly I wasn’t under the guidance of Brodie Lee. This is for you Brodie. #AEW #DarkOrder #X #TNTChampionship #AEWOnTNT pic.twitter.com/5w1I63y4em— Pres10 (@Pres10Vance) April 25, 2021
