Card got a bit better with Okada in it and it being a fatal fourway now. Would've been better if Kenny came back and replaced Adam Cole tho. Sucks about Bryan Danielson being hurt but hopefully they give us an exciting mystery opponent. AEW been kinda wack with their mystery stars lately so hopefully they won't let us down. That new 8 man tag doesn't seem too appealing but good to see Shingo and Hiromu in action. Hopefully one day we can see rest of LIJ in action too. LIJ vs JAS or another faction would've been a good one. Curious to see how they do the booking and if any titles change hands to the opposite promotion. Especially the tag titles with it being winner take all. Tho its ROH and not AEW titles on the line. Guess they had to protect the Bucks. :francis: Don't know why Scorpio Sky not defending the TNT title but maybe something will get thrown together on Rampage, who knows. As of now, maybe 5 matches seem intriguing, and the other 5 might surprise us.
Scorpio probably not cleared to wrestle yet is my guess

Omega is still recovering from various surgeries.

Also, original post updated with the full card

Cesaro? Danielson hinted the signing would be in BCC too. I know WWE is looking to bring him back but thats all I can think of
Claudio makes the most sense. He's an awesome wrestle, has history with Dragon and will be treated as a big surprise.

Tony Khan tends to underwhelm when it comes to mystery wrestlers though and I think that if Claudio was the one, he would've (well, should've) showed up last night. That’s what makes me think this replacement might be a great wrestler who wouldn't create a lot of buzz, like Jonathan Gresham or Timothy Thatcher.

Cesaro with the BBC would be a good look. Still don’t see how Mox fits in with the technician theme (I know hes a regal protege), but I guess they had to start something

Looks like a solid show but can't help but wish there were some better matchups. I was hoping for a AEW vs. NJPW best of 7 type card like Starrcade 95. Didnt necessarily have to all be 1v1 matches, coulda been six man tags in a few of the matches, etc

If it isn't Claudio, Thatcher would be perfect for BCC.

We are getting Bullet Club versus Los Stingobernables, why aren't you happy?
