US OF JAY OPEN CHALLENGE
Jay White will step into the ring to take on an unnamed opponent. The previous challenge was answered by Christopher Daniels, now the Switchblade has teased a potential bout with AEW’s Adam Cole and asked Tony Khan’s promotion to send someone elite to face him.
Matt Rewholdt vs. El Phantasmo
“The Drama King”, Matt Rewholdt, will be making his comeback to active competition after a few months of broadcast duty, where his opinions on El Phantasmo‘s antics weren’t favorable.
Clark Connors vs. TJP
As a part of the United Empire’s rivalry with LA Dojo, Clark Connors will take on TJP. Calling himself the Public Enemy, TJP turned his back on his former protege and later attacked him in Riverside – causing a knee injury in the process. Connors will get his chance at revenge in Seattle.
Yuya Uemara vs. Brody King
Young up-and-comer Yuya Uemura will face a much heavier and stronger Brody King. The Japanese wrestler has faced such notable individuals, like Josh Alexander and Jay White, and pushed them both to their limits. But will it be enough to prepare for the difficult challenge that the imposing King presents?
