Brody King Wins Royal Rampage
What to Know Following This Week’s AEW Rampage
As mentioned earlier King will now challenge Jon Moxley for the Interim AEW World Championship. They will go head to head this Wednesday night on Dynamite. This marks the first shot at a major singles title in AEW for King. Both King and Moxley have a very physical and hard-hitting style which should give AEW fans a memorable encounter between the two.
The Interim AEW World Championship was created due to an injury to current AEW World Champion CM Punk. Punk is currently out of action due to needing surgery. No timetable for his return has been released but he will take on whoever holds the Interim AEW World Championship to unify the titles when he returns.
