Keith Lee & Swerve Strickland vs Darby Allin & Orange Cassidy
Blind Eliminator Tag Team Tournament has formed several odd tag teams and Keith Lee & Swerve Strickland’s reunion is one of them. The duo has separated after losing the AEW Tag Team Titles last year and their feud is still ongoing. However, they are pitted in the same team in this blind eliminator tournament. They will face Darby Allin & Orange Cassidy in an attempt to get another shot at the tag titles. Will they be able to co-exist? Or will this prove to be a booster for their rivalry once again?

Ruby Soho vs Britt Baker
The first-round matches of the Women’s Owen Hart tournament will continue as Ruby Soho will face Britt Baker in a singles match. This match was scheduled for last week, but it was postponed due to Britt Baker’s illness. These two have been involved in a feud with each other for the past few months. Will Ruby Soho represent the Outcasts in the semi-finals or will the former AEW Women’s World Champion advance?
Kenny Omega vs Wheeler Yuta
Kenny Omega has delivered one of the best matches of this year at AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door against Will Ospreay, where he lost the IWGP United States title. Kenny Omega will return to action on July 5 for the first time since that match as he will face BCC’s Wheeler Yuta. Yuta was also the one who pinned him during Anrchy at the Arena match at Double or Nothing. Will Omega get a win back over Yuta?
MJF & Adam Cole in Action
MJF and Adam Cole, who are currently involved in a feud, would team up for the first time as they are scheduled to have their first-round match of the Blind Eliminator Tag Team Tournament this Wednesday. MJF tried to bond with Cole with an outing last week, but that did not prove to be fruitful. Will they be able to co-exist in the same corner? And who will they face?

What Else is Announced?
Jon Moxley is set to speak on the show. Moxley is in Japan for NJPW Strong Independence Day event. So, he is likely to feature in a pre-taped promo. He put out a challenge to The Elite for Blood & Guts last week, but he has not heard back from The Elite until now. What does he have to say to The Elite now?
Chris Jericho is also announced to address the fans after losing to Sting & Darby Allin in last week’s main event.
