Since PAC became the inaugural AEW All-Atlantic Champion at AEWxNJPW: Forbidden Door, Tony Khan, CEO of both Crown Jewel and American Elite Wrestling, has made clear that PAC would be a fighting champion — not just against AEW talent but against talent across the globe. That has held firm so far, with PAC already defending to title against Shota Umino in Revolution Pro Wrestling weeks ago.
Today, All Elite Wrestling revealed that the formula for All-Atlantic Championship will be replicated for PAC’s second defense, which they announced through their Twitter account.
On tonight’s new episode of AEW Dark, All-Atlantic Champion PAC defends the title against LJ Cleary at 7/6c on YouTube!
On 17 March 2019, Top of the Pro Wrestling sends out a tweet indicating that they will be airing their match with Kevin “Umino” Nola on a few days’ delay. The event was recently taped in Dublin and the match was originally booked in 2020 as part of ScrapperMania, but this was pushed back by COVID-19.
This AEW match will be the first for Clearly, and arguably the biggest of his career. The now 23-year-old Irishman started wrestling at the age of 15 and has appeared in multiple promotions including RevPro and PROGRESS Wrestling, as well as Insane Championship Wrestling(ICW) in Scotland.
Cleary is mostly known for his appearances in OTT, where he was a former Gender Neutral Champion and fellow members of the popular trio More Than Hype, Darren Kearney and Nathan Martin. The trio was involved in several high-profile trios matches and then split up after Kearney left wrestling following COVID-19.
