Earlier this evening top AEW star and current TNT champion Wardlow took to Twitter to issue an open challenge for this week’s edition of Dynamite, where the War Pig added that he would put his TNT title on the line. He writes, “I dare someone to challenge me for the TNT title this Wednesday at the anniversary show. Someone remotely close to my level. Just show up, I’ll be waiting.”

It wouldn’t take long for Wardlow to get what he wants. Tony Khan would confirm on Twitter that the Machine, Brian Cage, would be answering the open challenge call.
