Sunday's AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door card isn't done quite yet.

During a Friday media call, AEW head Tony Khan said more matches will be announced on Friday's edition of Rampage -- specifically focusing on The Buy-In pre-show.

He intimated that the nine-match PPV card is generally set, but that the pre-show will get a boost with the new announcements. As of now, an eight-man tag team match with Max Caster & Gunn Club vs. four members of the LA Dojo is the only announced bout.

The entire event has had to undergo massive changes over the last month due to injuries to AEW World Champion CM Punk, Bryan Danielson and Tomohiro Ishii in addition to political issues with AAA and NJPW due to CMLL's relationship with NJPW.

He also said fans will hear from both Eddie Kingston and Chris Jericho ahead of their tag team match on Sunday.

Here's the lineup for Friday:

  • Andrade El Idolo vs. Rey Fenix
  • Jeff Cobb vs. Cash Wheeler
  • Hook vs. The DKC
  • Serena Deeb & ROH Women's Champion Mercedes Martinez vs. TBA
