AEW Has Been Planning Santana & Ortiz vs. FTR Since May


On this coming Wednesday’s episode of AEW Dynamite (Fight For The Fallen), FTR (Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler) are set to face off against Santana & Ortiz. The match will be just the latest turn in the Inner Circle’s feud against The Pinnacle.

According to a new report from Fightful Select, this match has been in the works since May. The report stated that, “this specific matchup has been slated and on the billing for the Charlotte Dynamite since at least mid-May.” The report also noted that AEW’s long-term booking is a regular occurrence within the company.

AEW’s plans back in early 2020 reportedly were placed in jeopardy due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However the report notes that a lot of these plans eventually did go ahead. As of right now the report also states that a singles feud is “already tentatively set for the fall.”
