Tonight’s AEW Dynamite featured a pre-recorded sit-down interview between Jim Ross and Kenny Omega filmed at Daily’s Place in Jacksonville, Florida. J.R. asked Omega about his feelings on Don Callis, with the former AEW World Champion detailing the close relationship they shared when Omega was young. Omega even had complimentary things to say about Callis’ new protege, Konosuke Takeshita, with the former AEW World Champion stating he sees a lot of himself in the younger wrestler.
Before the end of the interview, Callis interrupted, bringing along Takeshita, “Switchblade” Jay White, and Juice Robinson to attack Omega as Ross looked on. Immediately following the segment, the show segued to Page standing outside of an ambulance, drinking a beer, and explaining that Callis and his allies didn’t put Omega down for good.
“It may seem like he is, but Kenny’s not finished, and neither is he friendless,” Page said. “Because in London, Kenny will have there two of his greatest friends, and – not to flatter myself – two of his greatest tag team partners of all time in ‘Hangman’ and Kota Ibushi. [It’s] a team I never would have though possible – a dream team, if you will – in front of one of the largest crowds in the history of professional wrestling. Juice, Jay, Takeshita. This little beatdown you started – at Wembley, we finish it.”
The newly-announced trios match joins five other matches announced for the massive show, including one slated for the Zero Hour pre-show. MJF is set to defend the AEW World Championship against Adam Cole in the main event, while the two will team up to challenge Mark David and Kyle Fletcher of Aussie Open during Zero Hour. Elsewhere on the card, Darby Allin and Sting will face Swerve Strickland and AR Fox, Hikaru Shida will defend the AEW Women’s World Championship in a four-way match, and the Young Bucks will take on FTR for the third time.
