Eddie Edwards vs. Fred Yehi
Jimmy Jacobs vs. Mance Warner
Jessicka Havok vs. Kylie Rae (c) (AAW Women’s Championship)
Jake Something vs. Sami Callihan (c) (AAW Heavyweight Championship)
AAW Are back in Chicago and while the card’s taken a hit from some lucha libre stars having to pull out they’ve still got some good stuff lined up for us, folks. Eddie Edwards returns to take on Fred Yehi, Jacobs and Mancer will surely try to gouge each others’ eyes out, Havok looks to take her title back, and Something is poised to make a big splash if he can just dethrone the Draw.
