TNT Title Triple Threat Match
Darby Allin’s rivalry with Christian Cage and Luchasaurus will continue with a triple threat match for AEW TNT Championship with Luchasaurus and Christian. Christian has made it clear that it will be like a 2-on-1 handicap match for Darby. How will Darby deal with this peril? Will we see Christian ending up with the title for real after this match?
Jay White vs Andrade El Idolo
In one of the marquee matches, Andrade El Idolo will take on Bullet Club Gold Leader Jay White. BCG members were excited for this clash as Andrade has been without his stable since his return in June. Will we see LFI coming to his aid finally? Or will it be House of Black who will target Andrade again?

FTR’s Open Challenge
FTR will continue to defend AEW Tag Team Championship week by week against new teams. Last week on Collision, they defeated Iron Savages to retain the title. This week, it will be The Workhorsemen who will challenge for the titles. Will they be able to pose any sort of threat to this seasoned team?
RVD & Hook Team Up
Rob Van Dam is returning to AEW for another match and he will team up with Hook to face Matt Menard and Angelo Parker. RVD previously challenged Jake Perry for FTW title that Hook later won back from Perry.
Julia Hart vs Willow Nightingale
Julia Hart continued her winning streak as she got her 24th win in AEW at Rampage this week by beating Skye Blue. However, she might have invited a big threat to her streak in Willow Nightingale. Hart put Blue in Heartless submission after the match was over, which brought out Willow to make the save. Will Hart be able to keep her streak going against a formidable and physically intimidating opponent?
