Dustin Rhodes vs. Jake Hager set for AEW Revolution
A new match has been announced for Revolution at the end of this month.
Dustin Rhodes will face Jake Hager in a singles match. It will be the first time that Hager has stepped foot into a AEW ring in a wrestling capacity.
The feud between the two extends as far back as October, when Jake Hager injured Rhodes’ hand by smashing it into a car door during a parking lot brawl. Dustin has since gone after the Inner Circle, including facing Sammy Guevara on two occasions.
On tonight’s episode of Dynamite, Rhodes scored the win over Guevara. After the match, Dustin called out Hager, saying that he’s a failure in MMA and he’s a failure here before he’s even started. It was here that Rhodes threw out the challenge for Revolution. Hager walked to the back, not responding,
Revolution will take place on February 29 at the Wintrust Arena in Chicago, Illinois.
