Dan Lambert, founder of MMA’s American Top Team, will no longer be appearing on tonight’s AEW Dynamite episode from Pittsburgh.
AEW boss Tony Khan appeared on Busted Open Radio this morning and said Lambert’s appearance was moved to next week’s Dynamite show in Houston.
Khan teased that Lambert will be bringing two former UFC Champions with him next week as they continue to antagonize pro wrestling.
“As a matter of fact, I was going to address that,” Khan said when asked about Lambert appearing tonight. “Dan and his guys, the more I talk to them and look at this, I’m gonna have Dan and his guys come next week. And really, if they want to tear into us, they can tear into us. I got to address the Rampage premiere. We’ve got a lot things to do and I know Dan wants to antagonize wrestling and talk about how wrestling used to be better and real men and I’d love to hear that.
“He’s going to bring big back up in the form of, not just one UFC Champion, but two great UFC Champions. I’m very excited for it. And if he wants to say all that, I’m totally game for it, but not this week. I have to launch Rampage and have a lot to do. I told him, ‘Bring your guys to Houston next week.’ So that’s what we’re going to do. Dan’s going to come to Houston, I’ll give him the time to say what he wants to say. By then, Rampage will have been established and we’ll enter the Rampage era and by then we’ll be two days away from The First Dance, which I think is the most anticipated wrestling television show in years.”
Lambert appeared on AEW’s Road Rager edition of Dynamite back in July. He cut an anti-AEW promo but was then attacked by current IWGP United States Champion Lance Archer.
