John Silver vs. Orange Cassidy
Cassidy ducks a lariat and immediately wrestles a circle around Silver, giving a mock thumbs up mid-way through his sequence. The lackadaisical shin kicks follow, John becoming more and more exasperated before scooping and slamming Orange! He physically yanks his hands out of his pockets and then tears the pockets out of his pants! HE’S EATING THE POCKETS!

Orange Cassidy wins by pinfall with the Beach Break.
Post-match, Best Friends give us what we want and we get the Rainmaker snap zoom hug.
Cody Rhodes (c) vs. Darby Allin (AEW TNT Championship)
Rhodes (now using his full name again, hell yeah) in charge early with the grappling but only by a slim margin, Allin going hold for hold. Waistlock takedowns, Darby reverses and Cody goes to the floor for a breather. Back inside, Allin gets a fancy flash pin and Rhodes bails again. Back in, up top, Cody cuts him off, hammerlock, slip out, release hammerlock atomic drop over the ropes and to the stage!
Back inside, Allin tries to press the attack, but the damage is done and Rhodes is able to fend him off. Hip toss into a short armscissor, Darby reverses into a pin briefly but Cody keeps the hold! Shfiting to an arm-trap Fujiwara armbar, grinding him down but Allin gets a foot on the ropes for the break!
Rhodes doing push-ups, Arn Anderson gives him a tongue-lashing for losing focus! Up top... AVALANCHE SHOULDERBREAKER FOR A NEARFALL!

Rhodes climbs the turnbuckles with Darby on his back and falls off for something of a senton! Allin rolls to the floor and Arn yells at him for a minute until he rolls back in. Scoop and a slam, military press slam, Cody takes his weight belt off and referee Mike Chioda warns him. Darby trips him up with the belt and gets a nearfall, catches the Beautiful Disaster, counters into Last Supper... SO CLOSE!
The standing Diamond Dust connects, Allin up top, Coffin Drop... NOT ENOUGH! Looking for Cross Rhodes, reversed, trading pins...
Darby Allin wins by pinfall with a victory roll pin to win the AEW TNT Championship.
Post-match, Rhodes presents Allin with the title belt and raises his hand.
Taz interrupts and says he needs a bag to vomit in and he’s sick of the hugging and the tears. Man up, he says! Act like you’ve been there before, congratulations, now take your bitch asses in the back. Brian Cage and Ricky Starks slide in the ring and beat Allin and Rhodes down!
Cage carries Darby off into the crowd, but Cody recovers and makes the save briefly but can’t keep Allin from getting thrown into some set dressing! The Machine pulls him back out and drags him over to the car that he arrived in the arena in tonight. They open the door and put his arm between the door and the frame... but before they can slam it on him and break his arm, Will Hobbs makes the save!

Cover for one, action to the apron, leg kick, to the floor and Rose cuts off an attempt to use a chair for a step-up knee only to get distracted arguing with referee Aubrey Edwards and Hikaru hits the knee anyway!

FTR (Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood) (c) vs. Young Bucks (Matt & Nick Jackson) (AEW World Tag Team Championship)
Wheeler and Matt to start, the match breaks down after a bit of feeling out and we get tags. Harwood and Nick doing a bit of light lucha libre, fast-paced with arm drags and headlock takeovers. Tags, double-teams on Cash, again the match breaks down as the Bucks do tandem moves to both FTR guys to send them to the floor!

Matt Hardy vs. Sammy Guevara (Elite Deletion)
Sammy Guevara rolls up to the Hardy compound in a custom “Spanish God” golf cart and is identified by NEO1, which projects a hologram of his master, welcoming him to his demise and turning his cart off. MATT HAS A MONSTER TRUCK AND HE RUNS OVER THE CART WITH GUEVARA STILL IN IT! Hardy says that was orgasmic and a squash job but Sammy comes out from under the wreckage and we get a bell!
Moonsault off the monster truck for two, Guevara throws a trash can at Matt and chases him off into the woods with it, throwing him into a tree. Matt with a suplex for two, fighting back over to the front yard, Sammy lays him out with a kick and announces to no one in particular that daddy’s home. Straight suplex on the grass, another two count!
Fighting over towards a fountain, trying to drown Hardy in it but he pulls out the Scepter of Mephistopheles and beats Guevara down with it! Right hands, fighting over towards some lights set up around a wrestling ring and whipping Sammy into the apron! Mounted punches, telling Sammy that he asked for this and the action goes in the ring.
Enzuigiri, springboard gets caught on the followup and Matt hits a Side Effect for two! Hardy slides a table in the ring and sets it up, beating Guevara down and telling him it’s over before Tenryu Powerbombing him into the table... BUT ORTIZ IS HERE TO BREAK IT UP?! AND SO IS SANTANA! Santana beats Hardy down on the ground while Ortiz checks on Sammy!
Matt gets a walkie talkie from under the ring and radios Private Party to help! Private Party get out of their vehicle and come to Hardy’s aid just as Sammy hits a Twist of Fate and heads up top! Shoving Guevara off the turnbuckles, they brawl with Santana and Ortiz... ORTIZ GETS FIREWORKS OUT FROM UNDER THE RING! Hardy cuts him off and takes the fireworks with him, shooting fireworks at the ring!
Sammy has fireworks too and we got a fireworks fight! Private Party continue brawling with Proud-N-Powerful... POETRY IN MOTION! Cut to Matt, shooting fireworks at Sammy as he slips in some mud! Kick to the gut, Twist of Fate! Hardy tells Guevara that his vessel needs to be cleansed and a mystery man appears threatening to break Hurricane Helms’ neck!
He takes the hood and mask off and it’s Gangrel! Private Party show up and Matt saves Helms from Gangrel! Hurricane asks what happened, it’s been two years, and Hardy says it’s long-term storytelling! Shane gets into it with Sammy and he throws the Hurricane into the Lake of Reincarnation! Guevara blocks a Twist of Fate and interview man Shane Helms shows up to interview him!
He throws Helms back into the lake and resumes brawling with his Broken Brilliance! Back to the ring, Gangrel is in the mix with Private Party and Proud-N-Powerful, Sammy and Matt brawl back, Hurricane’s here again, it’s a party! Helms with an inverted headlock elbow drop on Ortiz, Gangrel hits the Impaler, and Santana beats on Hardy with Floyd!
Guevara and Hardy go off into the woods while the brawl continues in the ring. Sammy’s got a sledgehammer and he’s promising to end Hardy, but he calls Skarsgard the dilapidated boat to block the entrance to the Dome of Deletion! He calls for the doors and they shut, leaving Sammy alone with him. Brawling around ringside, Guevara takes a turnbuckle hook off the ringpost!
In the ring, overhead elbows, turnbuckle to the midsection, he takes another turnbuckle off and does the same! A turnbuckle off the middle rope, wrapping it around Hardy’s neck and choking him with it! He can’t seem to choke him out so he takes the ropes off and sets Matt on a table that’s already set up in the ring.
Climbing a ladder... SENTON ATOMICO! Following it up, fireman’s carry, Hardy slips out, Twist of Fate spikes him right on the dome! SPEAR THROUGH THE ROPES AND THROUGH SOME TABLES! Sammy bleeding from the back of his head, Matt spikes him right in the eye with the edge of a chair! Stalking around him, he screams at Guevara that he made him into what he is, and turns him face down... CON-CHAIR-TO USING THE FLOOR AS THE OTHER CHAIR!
Matt Hardy wins by pinfall with a chairshot to the back of the head.
Post-match, Hardy declares it to be over and asks NEO1 to unlock the Dome and for Private Party to come in and help him take out the trash. They throw Sammy into a literal trash can and close the lid on him before wheeling him out and loading him into the back of a pickup truck. Matt tells Senor Benjamin to take this obsolete rubbish away and he drives off.
Reby Hardy plays the piano for us while we see a montage of highlights from the match.
We cut to Lance Archer and Jake “the Snake” Roberts in an alley somewhere.
Jake sings a song and tells us they’ve got nothing to do. He has to feed this son of a— and he doesn’t want food, he wants people. Somebody needs to step up and serve them something they can have, and then they’ll do what they want. Archer tells us the time of slaughter is coming and we will shatter beneath his boot like a fragile vase.
He’s going to break everyone in All Elite Wrestling, and he doesn’t care who you are, because everybody dies.

Eddie Kingston vs. Jon Moxley (c) (AEW World Championship “I Quit” Match)
Trading forearms out the gates, Moxley shifts gears to grappling and Kingston bites his ear! Trading chops, trading slaps, off the ropes and Eddie catches him with a belly-to-belly suplex that sends Jon rolling to the floor! Kingston futzing with a chair, Mox rolls back in and comes off the ropes with a suicide dive!
Throwing the chair at Eddie’s face, throwing him into the barricade, unhooking it and wrenching at Kingston’s hand, threatening to break his fingers! Brawling out into the crowd, Mox hits a straight suplex but Eddie recovers and takes him to the ringside barricade and throws him into it hard!
