Lee Moriarty vs. Leon Ruffin

Lee Moriarty is riding a small wave of momentum as he looks to make it three wins in a row. However, he’ll have a tough out as he faces former NXT North American Champion Leon Ruffin (also known as Leon Ruff) on AEW Dark. Moriarty has the clear advantage on paper as Ruffin has yet to claim a victory inside of an AEW ring.

That being said, Ruffin’s frenetic pace and unorthodox offense will give Moriarty issues as he’s had trouble facing similar opponents in the past. The most likely result will see Moriarty using his technical acumen to slow Ruffin’s pace and earn his third straight win inside of an AEW ring. Either way, given enough time, this match promises to be a show-stealer!
