Last week, Punk teamed with Sting & Darby Allin to defeat MJF & FTR in a 25-minute six-man tag at the Greensboro Coliseum.
On Wednesday, AEW also announced a ten-man tag has been added to tonight’s program with The Lucha Brothers, Christian Cage, Jungle Boy & Luchasaurus taking on FTR, Matt Hardy & Private Party.
It will also be producer Keith Mitchell’s final broadcast with Tony Khan announcing that he will be retiring.
