Tony Khan has described this show as having the most stacked card of the year with star power in every match. We haven’t heard about surprises on this show but there’s a rumor about a new wrestler seen in town that could debut tonight.
The first 30 minutes of The Buy-In pre-show was basically a replay of the Countdown to Full Gear that aired last night on TNT after AEW Rampage.
Before the first Buy In match, Tony Schiavone conducted an in-ring interview with Dante Martin to talk about the offer he received from Team Taz. Martin was quickly interrupted by The Acclaimed. Max Caster and Anthony Bowens tried to recruit Martin but the offer was declined and Martin took them both out with a springboard dive off the top rope.
