AEW will be airing a special Rampage: Buy-In pre-show on their YouTube channel this Friday night at 9 pm ET ahead of the live episode of Rampage on TNT at 10 pm ET.
AEW President Tony Khan announced the news during an appearance on today’s episode of WFAN’s Moose and Maggie. The pre-show, which is usually saved for only pay-per-view events, will have at least two matches featured on the broadcast.
Both Bryan Danielson and Bobby Fish will be in singles action ahead of their match against each other on Saturday’s episode of Dynamite. Minoru Suzuki vs. Danielson and Fish vs. Lee Moriarty have been booked.
This pre-show will go up against the second hour of WWE Friday Night SmackDown on FS1. As noted, SmackDown is running 2 and a half hours this Friday night. The final 30 minutes will be commercial-free and go head to head with AEW Rampage.
Previously confirmed for Friday’s Rampage episode includes CM Punk vs. Matt Sydal, Ruby Soho vs. The Bunny, and Chris Jericho & Sammy Guevara & Jake Hager vs. Scorpio Sky, Ethan Page, and former UFC Heavyweight Champion Junior Dos Santos.
