Swerve Strickland vs. Dustin Rhodes Announced For 2/17 AEW Rampage: Slam Dunk

All Elite Wrestling has announced two heated matches for AEW Rampage: Grand Slam.

The February 17 episode will air at the special start time of 7 p.m. ET. As announced on Friday’s episode of AEW Rampage, Dustin Rhodes will face Swerve Strickland on the show. The two stars have been feuding in recent weeks, as Strickland has targeted “The Natural” due to his status as a second-generation wrestler. Strickland and the Mogul Affiliates attacked Rhodes on Friday, and AEW announced a singles match between the two for next week.


Plus. Ricky Starks’ rivalry with the Jericho Appreciation Society will continue when he faces Daniel Garcia. Starks previously defeated Chris Jericho on the January 4 episode of AEW Dynamite. The JAS has continued to target the former FTW Champion, who has aligned with Action Andretti to combat the size of the group. Starks had the chance to earn a rematch with Jericho when he competed in the Guevara-Garcia Gauntlet on the February 8 episode of AEW Dynamite, but “The Ocho” helped Garcia win the match. On Friday night, Starks vowed to run through the JAS, starting with Garcia.

The updated card is as follows:

  • Swerve Strickland vs. Dustin Rhodes
  • Ricky Starks vs. Daniel Garcia

WrestleZone will have coverage of the show as it airs.
