The FTW title will be on the line on Friday's AEW Rampage as Ricky Starks will defend the gold against Swerve Strickland.

This will be Starks' first title defense since early-February when he defeated the debuting Jay Lethal.

Strickland has been getting involved in Team Taz's affairs over the last week, coming to the defense of Keith Lee who has his own issues with Powerhouse Hobbs and Starks.

reDRagon will also be in action as they take on Dark Order's 10 and Alan "5" Angels. Kyle O'Reilly and Bobby Fish attacked Dark Order friend and AEW World Champion Hangman Page on Wednesday's Dynamite before Jurassic Express and Christian Cage came out for the save.

Friday's show will also see Lance Archer take on Dustin Rhodes for the first time since their April 2020 clash in the inaugural TNT title tournament.

Nyla Rose will also be in action after her surprise attack on AEW Women's Champion Thunder Rosa Wednesday.

The new matches join the previously announced QT Marshall "Certificate of Accomplishment" ceremony for Hook after Hook's victory over him at Revolution.

Here's the full lineup that is being taped following Wednesday's Dynamite in Cedar Park, Texas:

  • FTW Champion Ricky Starks vs. Swerve Strickland for the title
  • Lance Archer vs. Dustin Rhodes
  • reDRagon vs. Dark Order's 10 and Alan "5" Angels
