Can the Madison Eagles-trained wrestler earn a shot at becoming the first ever AEW Women’s champion on Oct. 2? McKenzie joins Allie, Awesome Kong, Big Swole, Brandi Rhodes, Britt Baker, Ivelisse, Jazz, Nyla Rose, Sadie Gibbs, Teal Piper, and Yuka Sakazaki in the 21 person match on on The Buy In pre-show.
Meanwhile, since they’re in Hoffman Estates, Illinois already, AEW announced they’ll return for their Thanksgiving eve TNT show. Tickets are already on sale for Nov. 27 at Sears Centre:
