It’s not unusual for AEW to announce a bunch of stuff for the following Friday and Wednesday’s shows during Dynamite. In the case of Rampage, they’re often taping it as soon as the live broadcast ends, so they have to now what they’re doing. Excalibur is then tasked with running down the line-ups.
On the April 20 show, Tony Khan booked even more matches & segments than usual for this week’s Rampage and next week’s Dynamite. It forced the announcer William Regal calls “man in mask” into speed reading mode...
