Eddie Kingston vs. Daniel Garcia
On the November 17 edition of Dynamite, Eddie Kingston was being interviewed by Tony Schiavone. 2point0 (Jeff Parker and Matt Lee) along with Daniel Garcia interrupted. Garcia gloated about lasting longer with CM Punk than he did at Full Gear. Punk defeated Garcia several weeks ago on an edition of Rampage. Eddie told Garcia to be a man and not let anybody speak for him. He would have more respect for him that way. He pushed Garcia away, said he was going to catering, and wished he could have one promo not interrupted.
On Dark this week, Garcia & 2point0 defeated Adrien Soriano & Gabriel Hodder & Matthew Omen in what was basically a squash match. Eddie posted a video on his social media:

AEW Women’s World Champion Dr. Britt Baker, D.M.D. vs. Riho; Riho Gets Championship Match with Victory
Dr. Britt Baker & Rebel were having a “Friendsgiving” dinner with Tony Schiavone this past Wednesday. Tony revealed with video footage that during the last time they were in Chicago, at All Out back in August, former champion Riho was not eliminated correctly from the Casino Battle Royal that took place on that show. The winner of that match, Ruby Soho, earned a shot at Britt but came up short during their match at Dynamite: Grand Slam in New York.
As a result of this, Tony Khan booked a match for tonight between Dr. Baker and Riho. If Riho wins, she earns a match for the AEW Women’s World Championship at a show to be determined.
Adam Cole & Bobby Fish vs. Wheeler Yuta & Orange Cassidy
In a backstage segment, Adam Cole & Bobby Fish were expressing their frustrations with losing lately. Cole and the Young Bucks lost to Christian Cage & Jurassic Express (Jungle Boy & Luchasaurus) at Full Gear. Last week on Rampage, Cole & Fish lost to Jurassic Express. Cole talked about the Bucks not being cleared and said he knew that because he talked to them every day, and they’re liked family. In walked Chuck Taylor, Orange Cassidy, and Wheeler Yuta of the Best Friends (now part of the New Japan Pro Wrestling stable Chaos). Cole pointed out Taylor is without his friend Trent and how could he along with Cassidy and Yuta be true “best friends.”
Later in the show we learned that Cole & Fish would team up to take on Cassidy & Yuta tonight.
