Commentary sends us to break.
Back from commercial, Cody Rhodes makes his entrance.
Tony Schiavone welcomes him to ring and Cody begins, saying he’s not surprised at how blunt the arrival of the Inner Circle has been, or perhaps strategic, as they’ve taken a scalpel to the Elite. But they’ve been looking for a card they could match up against themselves, and the Inner Circle found them. On Saturday he finds himself on the marquee, wrestling the world champion Chris Jericho.
He and Tony have spoken about it, but first he wants to rattle off a few names-- Eddie Graham, “Cowboy” Bill Watts, the American Dream” Dusty Rhodes, all of them were titans in our business, bell to bell and at the box office, and those memories reverberate in our hearts, but for the cold and sterile historians of our business there’s controversy because they weren’t just competitors, they were management.
Just like Cody, and he’s spent the last year shouting to the rooftops about how proud he is of AEW, and this is Ellis Island for pro wrestling, freedom. So when he hears the same criticism attached to his name for being management and being in a title match, he can’t not hear it. So with that said, he’s announcing that if-- “You deserve it!” chants ring out across the crowd and he pauses a minute.
If he loses, he says, he’ll never challenge for the AEW World Championship again!
Jericho’s taken to calling him an entitled millennial bitch, but he’s never read about Y2J’s upbringing being so hard, and as the son of an upper class hockey player, it’s almost like they share the same silver spoon, you stupid dick. He talks about Chris dismissing every accomplishment he’s ever made, but the dirty secret is that Jericho needs this generation more than this generation needs him.
This isn’t about his dad, it’s not about the dead, it’s about the living, his mom, his sister, his wife, the fourteen years it took for him to go from undesireable to un-goddamn-deniable! At Full Gear, he beats Jericho and becomes world champion, and he should let his boys know the ground is rumbling because the Elite are coming and they’re going to eat the Inner Circle alive.
And so we go to break.
Back from commercial, SCU make their entrance as champions and join the announce team.
Dark Order (Evil Uno & Stu Grayson) vs. Private Party (Isiah Kassidy & Marq Quen) (AEW World Tag Team Championship Tournament Third Place Deciding Match)
Grayson and Quen to start, Stu just exploding all over the Private Party man! Quick tags and working him over but Kassidy gets a blind tag, Manhatten Drop sets up an enzuigiri, pop-up stomp and Uno pulls Grayson out! Evil running interference but Isiah sees Stu coming and lights him up with strikes until he gets caught by a huge Rock Bottom! Tag to Uno, drawing him up, backbreaker connects and the tag.
Double whip, flip, Kassidy lands on his feet, kick follows it up but Grayson keeps him from the tag and passes him into a boot from Uno! Passing Isiah to the apron, Evil trips him up, Stu... SLINGSHOT SENTON ATOMICO ON THE APRON! The Dark Order celebrate at ringside and we go to break.
Back from commercial, Uno with a back rake on Kassidy, jawing at Quen, blocking the tack, jockeying for position over a suplex clutch and Isiah hits the straight suplex! Marq with the tag, Dark Order working him right over but unable to put him away! Fatality denied, Quen with a dropkick, knocking Stu off the apron, springboard moonsault for Evil! Off the ropes...

Private Party win by pinfall with Gin and Juice on Stu Grayson.
Commentary tosses to a video that Chris Jericho sent in.
He’s shown at a table listening to Sammy Guevara prattle on about win before getting up and kissing him on the forehead and leaving. Sammy talks him up while we see Chris chilling with some bubbly in the bathtub. Virgil appears, billed as Soultrain Jones, and talks Y2J up, as do Santana and Ortiz, and Patricia Bobski, who is apparently Jericho’s aunt’s friend from church.
Guevara points out that Chris is the youngest AEW Champion in history, and Jake Hager is shown silently staring before Virgil says Chris is the greatest of all time. We see footage of Y2J training and then talking about how hard it is to be as great as he is. Virgil says he’s like Olive Garden breadsticks-- unlimited, and again Hager is quiet.
Jericho talks about figuring out the best place to go for bubbly and what a responsbility that is, but it’s one he has to face because he is le champion.
Commentary hypes up the card for Full Gear to send us to break.

Emi Sakura & Jamie Hayter win by pinfall with La Casita from Sakura on Riho.
We get another Brandi Rhodes vignette. This time she’s drinking wine in a red room, talking about how we tried so hard to paint her as a clown we forgot that she’s not stupid. The image flickers repeatedly, showing Awesome Kong as she talks about how with Kong’s body and her brain they can make us long for our worst nightmares. She doesn’t run the women’s division and never wanted to, and she has to ask-- who are the bullies now?
And on that note, we go to break.
