Who’s Coming To Grand Rapids For AEW’s All Elite Wrestling
Van Andel Arena will host All Elite Wrestling on Friday Night with a '2 for 1' event that includes the promotion's Friday night show 'Rampage' and also AEW 'Battle of the Belts III'.
Who will be in Grand Rapids for AEW?
AEW will be running their Friday night show Rampage live from Van Andel Arena from 10p-11p on Friday. The card for that show has been announced and includes some big names you may know from AEW or even WWE.
What is the card for AEW Rampage at Van Andel Arena?
The main event will feature the current AEW Interim World Champion Jon Moxley vs AEW Superstar Mance Warner. Some may remember Moxley from his time in the WWE where he was a former multi-time champion and member of The Shield as Dean Ambrose.
The card will also see another set of champions that features the current AEW Tag Champs Keith Lee & Swerve Strickland taking on Tony Nese & Josh Woods for those belts. Lee, Strickland, and Nese are also wrestlers who honed their craft in WWE prior to joining AEW.
AEW has also announced the addition of free agent Madison Rayne who is best known for her time with the TNA/Impact wrestling promotion, where she was a 5 Time Knockouts Women's Champion.
You can probably expect another surprise or two during the live hourlong event as well.
Who will be at AEW Battle Of The Belts 3 in Grand Rapids?
Not only will Grand Rapids fans see a live edition of Rampage, but the company will be holding their third edition of 'Battle Of The Belts' before Rampage.
Three championship bouts will be on the card, including Ring of Honor Champion Claudio Castagnoli defending his title against Takeshita. Many longtime WWE fans will remember Claudio from his time performing as the 'Swiss Superman' Cesaro.
The AEW Women's Championship will also be defended in Grand Rapids as Champion Thunder Rosa takes on Jamie Hayter.
Plus, arguably AEW's most popular and dominating wrestler, Wardlow will be in action defending the TNT Title against multi-time Ring Of Honor & Impact Champion Jey Lethal.
While this is the complete listing of matches announced, anyone who's ever been to a pro-wrestling show knows that much more is likely in store. Tickets for the event are available on AEWTix.com.
Is there a Meet & Greet for AEW in Grand Rapids?
AEW announced that you will be able to meet superstars before the event at 6:15p on Friday.
Those wrestlers include Michigan's own Danhausen, former Women's Champion Hikaru Shida, and “Platinum” Max Caster and Anthony Bowens, the team known as The Acclaimed. You can get Meet & Greet tickets starting Friday at Noon at AEWLiveMerch.com.
