If you thought Jon Moxley defeating Kenny Omega in a Lights Out match AEW Full Gea was crazy, you haven't seen anything yet.

After tonight's AEW Dynamite, it was announced that Omega would defend his AEW World Championship against Moxley in an Exploding Barbed Wire Death Match.

For those unfamiliar, this match will see C4 explosives rigged up to the barbed wire ropes. If things go according to plan, this would be the first time a match like this airs live on pay-per-view in the United States.

The wrestling promotion FMW popularized the Exploding Barbed Wire Death Match during the 1990s in Japan. It featured legends like Terry Funk, Masahiro Chono, and the hardcore legend himself, Mick Foley.
