PAC Championship Defense
PAC continues to prove himself a fighting champion as he takes on LJ Cleary. For those unfamiliar with his work, Cleary has shown to be a promising prospect through his work with ICW, Phoenix Wrestling, and, most notably, OTT. This match will also have some historical significance, as Cleary will be the first Irish-born wrestler to challenge for an AEW championship.
That said, I do not see him becoming the first Irish AEW Champion, at least not yet. PAC has been on a dominant run, having not lost a singles match since his encounter with Andrade El Idolo in September last year. Not to mention, this is the first time PAC has held AEW gold, and I don’t see him letting go of that strap anytime soon.
