Maxwell Jacob Friedman is backstage when one of his entourage tells him that his lawyer, “Smart” Mark Sterling, has locked himself in his locker room. He says he’s found a way out of this, and Wardlow kicks his door down and pulls him out. MJF gets in Sterling’s face and says he’s done whatever it takes his entire life to become a champion, and he knows he’s afraid of Jon Moxley, but there’s nothing scarier than being in a position to get in the way of his gold.
When men get in the way of his gold, bad things happen to them. Option one, you get in the ring, option two, you get in a [CENSORED] wood chipper. So the choice is his, which one does he want to deal with tonight?
SCU make their entrance and we go to break.

We go backstage with Jake Hager as he walks into Orange Cassidy’s dressing room and sits down next to him. They stare at each other for a beat and Hager informs Orange that Chris Jericho wants him ringside for his match tonight. Cassidy puts a foot up on Jake’s leg, Hager swats it away and tells him he’d be smart to be there, and walks out.
Orange Cassidy roots around in his backpack as we go to break.
Back from commercial, we go backstage with Tully Blanchard and FTR.
Tully tells them Saturday is their chance, and they talk about how important this match is to them and on Saturday night, you will fear the revelation— top guys, out.
Tony Schiavone introduces Kenny Omega for an interview on the stage.
Kenny says everyone makes mistakes, and this is something “Hangman” Adam Page is going to have to live with for the rest of his life, and FTR have the title shot on Saturday. Page got taken by them and fooled, these things happen, we learn and we move on, but like every other tag team before them, they’ll defeat them.
He hopes FTR bring their A game, because he knows he and Adam will bring theirs.
Enter FTR and Tully, carrying a cooler.
FTR say the tag champs have had a great, impressive run as two singles guys becoming tag champs, and they’ve never had a problem with him. In fact, at All Out, they’re looking forward to having a great contest and blowing everybody’s expectations. So he wants to toast to that, and they have a chocolate milk for Omega.
Kenny says they’ve known each other three months and they know he can’t turn down a delicious chocolate milk, but he can turn down spending time with dickheads like them. If they came down here to bamboozle him, they might as well get it over with. By his count it’s two vs. one, or three with Tully, and sure he might lose, but he’ll get some good shots in.
But do him a favor, keep the old man away from him because he can smell his Depends from here.
Enter “Hangman” Adam Page.
FTR call him down, calling him the cowboy hero that they’ve been waiting to hear from, and asking him to explain who got into his head and made him turn on his best friends, because it wasn’t them, or anybody, it was Page himself. Kenny’s known Page for four or five years, but FTR have known him his whole career, and they know he’s just an insecure little boy.
So tell ‘em, Page, how you’re so egotistical, admit how big of a piece of shit you are. Kenny holds ‘em back and tries to reassure him as FTR take the tag titles. Hangman demands them back and FTR drop the belts at his feet before leaving the ring. Adam goes to hand Omega his belt, but he’s out of the ring.
Chris Jericho is interviewed backstage.
He asks when the last time the interviewer experienced something for the first time and knew he wouldn’t likely experience it again, and says that’s the Mimosa Mayhem match, the culmination of fourteen weeks between him and Orange Cassidy, and he’s made him a better man and shown every facet of him as a pro wrestler.
On Sunday he’s gonna hit him in the face with Judas Effect, make him tap with the Walls of Jericho, and then dump him in the vat of mimosa and drown his hopes and dreams in a little bit of the bubbly. And god help Joey Janela, because he’s giving him a little taste of that right in front of Orange.
Joey Janela makes his entrance and we go to break.
Back from commercial, Orange Cassidy makes his entrance, as requested, and takes a seat at ringside.
Chris Jericho vs. Joey Janela
Jericho windmilling Janela into the corner, raining punches down, drawing him up for chops, whip into the corner, lariat into a snapmare and then overhead punches to Joey! Back suplex, standing on Janela’s hair and yanking on his arms, drawing him up, whip across, shoulder block, the Bad Boy fighting from his knees but Y2J fends him off with ease.
Back suplex, Janela lands on his feet, throwing forearms, off the ropes with a flying shoulder and Jericho is taken off his feet! Off the ropes, Y2J with a lariat, a Codebreaker, Walls of Jericho applied...
Chris Jericho wins by submission with the Walls of Jericho.
Post-match, Y2J takes one of the turnbuckle pads off and smashes Joey face-first into the exposed steel! Hammering the wound with punches, tearing at the bad Boy’s flesh and wiping his blood across the Orange Cassidy shirt he’s wearing! Jericho tears the shirt off and throws it at Cassidy, and that’s enough!
Orange hits the ring, brawling punches, Jake Hager runs in and pulls him away from Jericho, laying knee after knee! SONNY KISS MAKES THE SAVE AND LAYS JERICHO OUT WITH A RIGHT HAND! Hager hits the big high angle spinebuster on Kiss! Cassidy recovers and runs Hager off before DDTing Jericho!
Cassidy reaches into his backpack and pulls out his own bottle of the bubbly! He uncorks it and pours it out with a thumbs down!
We get a recap of Matt Hardy vs. Sammy Guevara from last week.
Sammy Guevara makes his entrance to send us to break.
Back from commercial, Matt Hardy is standing on high and doing “DELETE!” at Sammy Guevara.
Team Taz make their entrance.
Taz gets on the mic and says one of his two boys is winning the Casino Battle Royal. He says Darby Allin is dead meat and asks who Lance Archer ever beat, saying he can’t deal with the Machine.
Jake “the Snake” Roberts makes his entrance with Lance Archer and says tit for tat, you interrupt him and he’ll interrupt you.
Taz and his boys are a bunch of squirrels in search of a nut, and they’re gonna walk out with nothing on Saturday. What he sees here is the best set of losers he’s ever seen.
Eddie Kingston and his boys come out.
Eddie says the show’s live, they’ve gotta hurry up and there’s been enough talking. Lance is big and tough, he ain’t tougher than Eddie. Taz used to be around killers and now he’s around big for nothing machines, and then you got—
Tully Blanchard and Shawn Spears walk by on the stage.
Kingston says he doesn’t know whether to take Ricky Starks on a date or fight him, which gets Taz to say his boys’ll fight any of ‘em!
Everything breaks down into chaos, Billy Gunn joins the fray, Darby Allin comes out and goes right after Starks! More men enter the fray as the brawl continues, including Santana, Ortiz, and Hager, as well as Best Friends!
Everyone brawls at length as we go to break.
Back from commercial, the brawl is still ongoing as we cut to a special look at the Dark Order.
Serena Deeb vs. Thunder Rosa
Collar and elbow, struggling into the ropes and back out, wristlock, Rosa rolling through, drop toehold into a legscissor, floating over, Deeb to her feet with a waistlock before taking her down. Thunder posts to her feet, Serena with a side headlock, block the shoot off and she decks Rosa with a right hand!
Thunder gives back as good as she gets and they trade shots! Arm drags, dropkick, fired up, whip reversed into a straitjacket neckbreaker and Deeb is back in it! Stepover armlock, post the knee into the mat over and over, and we go to break.
Back from commercial, Rosa has turned the tide but Deeb fires back some overhand chops! Choking her in the ropes, grabbing a waistlock, Serena rallies, shoulder armbreaker sets up an octopus hold! Out, making covers, jockeying for position, Death Valley Driver... SERENA KICKS OUT! Thunder with knucklelocks, Deeb counters to a sunset flip, reversed, no dice, series of chops into a German suplex!
Drawing her up...
Thunder Rosa wins by pinfall with the Thunder Driver.
Jon Moxley cuts a promo backstage.
He tells MJF he earned his shot and to not sweat the process, because on Saturday night, when the bell rings, all the distractions, his campaign, the lawyers, all that crap goes away and there’s just one question left to answer— are you ready and willing to kill or be killed? You’re going to need to be the most savage MJF ever to take him out.
For his part, this year’s been bad enough without MJF running around with the title, and this is his moment, his trial by fire, kill or be killed. He knows he thinks he’s real hot stuff, but everything he’s done until now has been the easy part.
And so we go to break.
“Big Swole” Aerial Monroe is interviewed at ringside.
She says Britt Baker has been ducking and dodging for the longest time, and this changes this weekend, because at the Buy-In, she’ll have no place to hide, because she’s gonna show up at her job and they’re gonna fight tooth and nail.
Rebel rolls up with a pizza and it’s a fakeout to let a healed Dr. Britt Baker, DMD attack Monroe! She puts her into the pizza and puts Lockjaw on!
“Smart” Mark Sterling makes his entrance, “assisted” by Wardlow, to send us to break.
Jon Moxley vs. “Smart” Mark Sterling
Sterling keeping his distance, Moxley starts at him and he jumps back! Circling, getting behind Mox, who takes an easy circle to face him again and offers up his jaw for a free shot. Mark closes in and Jon slaps him across the face, leading him to fall to the floor! Sterling holds his ear and complains about bleeding, but Wardlow waves him right back in!
Moxley offering his back up for a free shot, Sterling off the ropes but Mox sidesteps and he spills out to the floor! Jon gives chase and brings him back in, catches a kick and Sterling rakes his eyes! Mark celebrates like he won the match, runs the ropes and gets destroyed by a lariat! Moxley clotheslines him to the floor and follows after, throwing him into the barricade!
Dragging him into the crowd, dropping barricades on him, throwing chairs, all while referee Paul Turner tries to restore order! Drawing him up, right hands, taking one of his shoes and beating him with it! Back inside, Mox toys with him a beat longer, underhooks...
Jon Moxley wins by pinfall with Paradigm Shift.
Post-match, Wardlow gets in the ring and runs Mox over with a lariat! Fireman’s carry... F-10!
Maxwell Jacob Friedman rolls up and discards the walker, discards the neck brace, and heads in the ring ready for a fight. He rains grounded punches down, gouging at his eyes, choking him, he calls for the ring and Wardlow gives it to him! A PUNCH RIGHT TO THE DOME WITH THE RINGED FINGER! MOX IS BUSTED OPEN AS HE KEEPS RAINING PUNCHES DOWN!
MAX WIPES MOXLEY’S BLOOD ACROSS HIS FACE! HE HOLDS THE TITLE UP OVER HIS FALLEN BODY AND STEPS ON HIS THROAT!
THAT’S THE SHOW, FOLKS!
