Kenny Omega will defend the AEW World Championship on a special Saturday episode of AEW Dynamite on June 26.

AEW President Tony Khan announced the news during an appearance on Busted Open Radio.

The match had originally been scheduled for the June 11 episode of AEW Dynamite. This date was provided shortly after Jungle Boy won the Casino Battle Royale at the Double or Nothing pay-per-view to earn the title shot. But the championship match has now been postponed.

In the meantime, Jungle Boy is riding high, as he continues to rack up some notable victories. This week on AEW Dynamite, he earned the win in a tag team match where he teamed up with Christian Cage to defeat Private Party.
