Dr. Britt Baker, DMD vs. Priscilla Kelly (On a Boat)

Collar and elbow, Baker with a wristlock, hammerlock, side headlock takeover, full nelson, snapmare, crucifix pin, side press, arm wringer into a overhead hip toss, really working her way through all her holds as we go to break on a boat.

Dr. Britt Baker, DMD wins by submission with Lockjaw on a boat.

Post-match, Britt is interviewed on a boat.

She tells Tony Schiavone not to question her character. This is his meal ticket, we all know he was at Starbucks before this and we’re all proud that he’s here and not just a shitty barista. The people don’t look down on him for that and they look up to her, because she’s a role model and that’s a lot of pressure. AND she’s the hottest girl on this boat (miss, Priscilla Kelly was literally just fighting you) and hey, she’s a dentist, on a boat.

She’s still going on as we go to break, on a boat.

Back from commercial, we get a recap of last month’s match between “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry and Chris Jericho, which did not happen on a boat.

Inner Circle (Chris Jericho, Ortiz, & Santana) vs. Jurassic Express (“Jungle Boy” Jack Perry, Luchasaurus, & Marko Stunt) (On a Boat)

Perry and Jericho to start, Jungle Boy jawing at Le Champion. Chris gets right back in his face and slaps him, which gets Jack throwing forearms! Whip, dropkick and a kip-up, and Y2J rushes to tag Ortiz in! Rolling through, drop down, headscissors takeover, dropkick but Angel blocks it. Eye poke, take the gloves off, back rake, another one, but Jack comes back with an Arabian press arm drag for two, on a boat!

Back from commercial, Jericho’s in control on Perry, stepping on his hair and grabbing a double wristlock to maximize the suffering. Jack fighting back with desperate strikes, off the ropes, schoolboy for two. Chris cuts him off, tag to Santana, and he goes back to the double wristlock and follows it up with a backbreaker hold on a boat!

Cover for two, whip across, Jungle Boy takes the buckles hard and Santana clears the apron but Luchasaurus stands firm. Dragging Perry over, tag to Jericho. Draw him up, whip across, Jack ducks a lariat, folding press for two! Y2J stays on him, sets him up top, and chops away. Jockeying for position, Perry drops him with a gourdbuster and hits a diving crossbody... NOT ENOUGH ON A BOAT!

Proud-N-Powerful in, Ortiz legal, working Jack over and covering him for two. Into the corner, whip reversed and Perry hammers him with a Violence Party in the corner!

Inner Circle win by pinfall with the Judas Effect from Chris Jericho on Marko Stunt, on a boat.

A video package recapping the Cody Rhodes / Maxwell Jacob Friedman feud follows, none of which happened on a boat.

Maxwell Jacob Friedman makes his entrance to send us to break, on a boat.

Joey Janela vs. Maxwell Jacob Friedman (On a Boat)

Collar and elbow, Friedman shoves Janela back into the corner and jaws at him. Back to the lockup, Max with a wristlock, Joey rolls through and reverses to one of his own. MJF reverses to a side headlock takeover, Joey with the headscissors, side headlock takeover his own, Max with the headscissors counter, stalemate!

Janela to the ropes, Max charges in and gets back body dropped into the ring! Joey headed up top, MJF rolls away so the Bad Boy pops down and lines him up. Max pulls referee Aubrey Edwards in, Joey pulls her away and Friedman clocks him with a forearm, on a boat.

Maxwell Jacob Friedman wins by pinfall with Double Cross, on a boat.

Post-match, MJF gets on the mic, on a boat.

He says we love him, and we definitely love Cody, right? We should! Did you hear what he had to say, goddamn he’s practically a poet! In a world full of mumble rappers, Cody Rhodes is a real lyricist, looking straight into the camera and saying that Max is just another chapter in his book. And for once in his life, Cody was right! He is a chapter... and he goes on to say that he’s the last goddamn one, on a boat.

Enter Cody Rhodes, on a boat.

Max says Wardlow isn’t here, and he doesn’t need to be, because no matter what he says or does, Cody can’t lay a finger on him. But hey, he’s gonna give him room to say whatever he needs to. He goes to pass the mic to Rhodes but “accidentally” drops it, and when Cody goes to pick it up, he kicks it away and offers up his chin. Cody grabs the mic and Friedman walks past, throwing the bird up on a boat.

Rhodes says Max is right, he can’t touch him. The Young Bucks sneak up behind MJF while Rhodes continues, saying they can... SUPERKICK PARTY ON A BOAT!

Cody asks if they should throw Max in the pool and the crowd’s into it, so the Bucks manhandle MJF and drag him over to the pool, dumping him in! Max splashes and thrashes while the Bucks laugh and point, on a boat.

A hype reel for the cruise as a whole sends us to break on a boat.

Back from commercial, Tony Schiavone interviews “Hangman” Adam Page and Kenny Omega on a boat.

Omega says he’d never have predicted he’d be here in the tag division now with one of his best friends, but here he is. Page says he said he’d whip both their asses and he did. He continues and Tony cuts him off to ask Kenny about PAC. He says PAC is garbage but he’s gonna get his rubber match, but right now the tag titles are a priority, off a boat or on a boat.

Adam gets cut off by the Bucks showing up and Kenny says they’ve supported them since day one. Hangman says he’s surprised they won the titles before the Bucks did and he sips his whiskey as he leaves. Kenny sputters an agreement on a boat.

Commentary hypes up next week’s show for us, which will not be taking place on a boat.

Chris Jericho joins commentary on a boat.

PAC makes his entrance and we go to break on a boat.

Jon Moxley vs. PAC (AEW World Championship #1 Contenders Match On a Boat)

Moxley with the eyepatch on, circling, test of strength, waistlock, PAC with a go-behind, Jon with a drop toehold into a front chancery but the Bastard gets his foot in the ropes and referee Paul Turner calls for the break. Collar and elbow, side headlock from PAC, shot off, shoulder block, off the ropes, waistlock and a back elbow catches Mox in the bad eye on a boat!

Undeterred, Moxley fights on, chops, up and over, jockeying for position and he hits a German suplex on the Bastard! Corner lariat, PAC blocks the bulldog, another elbow to the eye and Jon staggers back! Putting boots to Mox in the corner, getting him in a half camel clutch and firing off crossface blows that dislodge the bandage! Stepping on Moxley’s head, running knee, and he dumps him to the floor on a boat!

Smashing Mox’s face into the apron repeatedly, Turner checks on him and we go to break on a boat.

Back from commercial, PAC rakes Moxley’s eye from the apron! Perched up top, missile dropkick, kip-up but Jon decks him with a lariat! Both men to their feet after, slugging it out forearm for forearm, Mox falters and fires up, off the ropes, rolling solebutt catches him but he gets the Crash Landing after for two! Looking for another, blocked, PAC hits a jawbreaker and then lines a second up right on his orbital bone, on a boat!

Setting Jon up top, jockeying for position, Mox shoves him down and rearranges his bandage before perching... KNEES UP ON THE DIVING ELBOW AND THE BASTARD GOES FOR THE BRUTALIZER!

Sleeper hold to follow it up, PAC breaks free with a headbutt, off the ropes, German suplex! PAC up top... BLACK ARROW BUT NOBODY’S HOME! Both men down and out, the Bastard with a front kick, off the ropes, thinking about another one but Mox counters with a DDT... ONLY GOOD FOR TWO ON A BOAT!

Neither man willing to stay down, slow to rise, PAC bails to the floor and Moxley follows after, stumbling and staggered and holding on to the apron for his balance. Back inside, Jon up top, the Bastard climbs to meet him... SUPERPLEX AND HE GOES RIGHT TO THE BRUTALIZER! Wrenching it in, Mox flagging but not failing, there’s fight left in him and he gets a foot on the ropes to break, on a boat!

PAC to his feet, he wrenches the bandage off of Jon’s head and starts punching away at the bad eye! Referee Paul Turner pulls him off and admonishes him, Mox takes advantage, small package... NOT ENOUGH! Front kick, DDT, crawling to his feet, pulling him up again, underhooks on a boat...
