For the second time ever in a singles match, Bryan Danielson will face Minoru Suzuki this Friday on The Buy In show prior to AEW Rampage in Miami, Florida.
The live hour-long YouTube show was announced Tuesday by Tony Khan, the first time they have done a live lead-in show like this for Rampage or Dynamite.
The two squared off at a July 2004 New Japan Summer Struggle event with Suzuki picking up the win. The two worked against each other in a series of tag team matches that year.
Suzuki recently made his AEW debut against Jon Moxley, followed by a tag team match with Lance Archer against Moxley and Eddie Kingston. He has been stateside since September with appearances for New Japan Strong, AEW, GCW and other indies.
Friday's pre-show will also see Bobby Fish take on Lee Moriarty. Fish and Danielson will square off in a singles match the following night on the special live Saturday edition of AEW Dynamite from Miami.
