Tony Khan recently signed free agent “Switchblade” Jay White to an AEW contract. White debuted on the Apr. 5 Dynamite to join Juice Robinson in ambushing Ricky Starks. Jay and Juice then announced that they are bringing Bullet Club Gold to All Elite Wrestling.
On tonight’s episode of Rampage, White’s first match as member of the AEW roster was officially booked for next week’s (Apr. 19) Dynamite. White will be going one-on-one with Komander. I don’t think this fight will end well for that guy.

Switchblade has previously wrestled on Rampage when he walked through the Forbidden Door as a member of the NJPW roster, but this will be his first ever match on AEW Dynamite.
Tonight’s Rampage also included an angle where Daddy Ass tried to use a scissor to cut off Daddy Magic’s hard nipples, setting up a trios match for next week.
