Cody will receive an AEW World Title shot at Full Gear on November 9th, 2019. AEW officially confirmed Cody will receive a title shot at the Full Gear PPV in an article for AEW President Tony Khan is stating that Cody is receiving a title shot due to his win/loss record which includes single’s victories over Dustin Rhodes and Shawn Spears as well as a time-limit draw against Darby Allin.

“Cody’s outstanding record in singles competition has secured him the number one contender ranking, and he will be challenging AEW world champion Chris Jericho in the first ever pay-per-view defense of the championship on November 9 in Baltimore at Full Gear,” said Khan. “Cody earned this opportunity over the summer as he remained unbeaten in singles bouts, scoring pins on a pair of proven veterans, defeating his older brother, the legendary wrestler Dustin Rhodes at Double or Nothing, and beating bitter rival and former partner Shawn Spears at All Out—and battling to a draw with the exciting upstart Darby Allin at Fyter Fest.”
