As of this writing, Nick, Rocky Romero and IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion Hiromu Takahashi are announced for the show.

Good announcement coming after his Dynamite debut. This will be my first time seeing him in person (I haven’t attended a GCW show since 2020, so I’ve only seen him from the comfort of home).
