One of the first-round matches was announced on the 1/27 Dynamite as NWA World Women’s Champion Serena Deeb is taking on the returning Riho. Riho last wrestled for AEW in March of 2020. Since then, she has been wrestling in Japan for STARDOM, DDT and several independent promotions in the country.

The winners of the match will challenge Matt and Nick Jackson for the tag titles at Revolution but if The Young Bucks win, they get to select their opponents for Revolution.

During the Inside The NBA show on TNT prior to Dynamite, Shaquille O’Neal issued the challenge to Cody Rhodes for a match in March. On Dynamite, Cody alongside Arn Anderson addressed Shaq and Jade Cargill’s respective challenges. Cody mentioned that he did not have anybody on his side for Jade because Brandi Rhodes is pregnant. Arn Anderson then brought out Red Velvet who has had several physical interactions with Jade.
