Cody and Brandi Rhodes live in Atlanta and could likely appear as well. Brandi doubts Cody knows how to get to the venue, however.
I don’t think you know where we live hun. ?

Matt Jackson On OWE Partnership
Matt Jackson recently took the time to speak on AEW’s partnership with Oriental Wrestling Entertainment (OWE).
“Immediately when I saw a couple of GIFs of the OWE guys on Twitter, I was attracted,” he said. “So, I looked up more clips and did research on them. I quickly learned my old friend CIMA, who I’d made friends with years ago in Japan, was affiliated with them. That made sense right away, because the clips I watched had a real Dragon Gate feel to it.”
He continued, “Yet still, it looked and felt so original. Like a fight scene from an old Kung fu movie. I knew I’d one day work with these guys right away. I’m attracted to anything out of the ordinary.”
