All the faces with one expression, behind the windows, we’re all down at heel. Don’t expect us to do you favors, it’s just the way that we feel. Get ready for some action, as I liveblog this here pro wrestling show for you, folks.

The show opens with the intro video.

Jon Moxley (c) vs. “Machine Gun” Karl Anderson (IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship)

Eddie Kingston comes down to neutralize Doc Gallows and we are off!

Moxley hammering Anderson in the corner, Karl gets a boot up, trading strikes, forehead to forehead and Jon drops him with a headbutt! Clothesline sends the Machine Gun to the floor, following after, Mox throws him into the barricade and they end up on the ramp. Jockeying for position over a suplex, Anderson gets it but Moxley quickly regains the momentum and beats him down in the barricade!

Back inside, Gun Stun over the ropes and he follows it up with a Sick Kick that knocks the champion to the floor! Back inside, Karl bringing it to him, choking him in the corner, Jon gets a few body blows, off the ropes but he runs into that Anderson spinebuster... NOPE! Machine Gun up top, Moxley joins him, jockeying for position, the champ hits a superplex!

German suplex gets a Sick Kick gets a lariat, Jon lifts him up, Anderson floats out, Gun Stun blocked, double lariats leave both guys laid out! Back to their feet, Mox gets a sleeper, slips him out, thinking about the piledriver but Karl blocks and he has to lay a few knees in. Off the ropes, Anderson with a kick and then a spinning Fire Thunder Driver of sorts... STILL NO!

Off the second with a Gun Stun... JON MOXLEY WON’T STAY DOWN! Fireman’s carry, Mox slips out, front kick, Paradigm Shift blocked, off the ropes, rolling elbow! Gun Stun! Both men are down and out but Moxley rolled to the ropes! Karl gets the TKO... SO CLOSE HE CAN TASTE THE GOLD! Anderson up top, Mox counters the diving Gun Stun, short-arm lariat connects, underhooks...

Jon Moxley wins by pinfall with Paradigm Shift, retaining the IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship.

We see Jake “the Snake” Roberts and Lance Archer backstage.

Jake is agitated but Lance is calm and calls Jon Moxley out. He notes his successful title defense and his impeccable win record, and says he wants his rematch next week, in Dallas, another Texas Death Match just like the last one.

And so we go to break.

Back from commercial, we get footage of Andrade el Idolo being interviewed backstage earlier today.

Andrade says HE’S got a question— where is Death Triangle?

Brian Cage (c) vs. Ricky Starks (FTW Championship)

Cage in control early, crotching Starks on the ropes and shaking him, powerslam, charging in, Ricky sidesteps and kicks the shoulder a few times, and he’s in control as we go to break.

Back from commercial, Cage bowls Starks over and knocks him to the floor! Pulling him shoulder-first into the post, Ricky slips past a second attempt and drops Brian on the floor! Throwing him back inside, jockeying for position over a German suplex, Cage turns Starks inside out... HIS FOOT IS ON THE ROPES! Big superkick from the Machine, Ricky gets under him... LIGER BOMB CAN’T KEEP THE MACHINE DOWN!

Powerhouse Will Hobbs stops Ricky from grabbing the title belt, Cage grabs him... AN F-5 CAN’T KEEP RICKY STARKS DOWN! Hook running interference, Hobbs clobbers Cage with the belt, Ricky takes advantage...

Ricky Starks wins by pinfall with a spear, becoming the new FTW Champion.

Commentary informs us that Arn Anderson is gonna be okay after taking a Black Mass last week.

Cody Rhodes rolls up to call Tommy End / Malakai Black out and says a phone call would have sufficed and you don’t kick a 62-year-old man in the face to where he can’t get up, and he demands a mic to finish in the ring.

He says he’s feeling boisterous and he doesn’t win every fight but he’s sure as hell got a better chance when he knows it’s coming. This might be an abuse of his power, but this is Fyter and he feels like Fyting, so answer the call.

Black appears in a smokey ring.

He says he’s violent and doesn’t care about Arn as much as Cody does, and he tells a story about seeing a man kill a horse because he realized it wasn’t the horse he once had and it was time to go, and Arn Anderson is that horse. Cody calls him down, he agrees, the lights go out and they come up with Black in the ring!

They brawl, referees and road agents (including Jerry Lynn!) swarm to pull them apart, and we go to break.

Back from commercial, Tully Blanchard is interviewed while he walks backstage.

Before he can say much of note, he runs into Santana and Ortiz and they accost him, pulling out a crowbar but stopping short of actually beating him with it. They tell him he’s lucky they were taught to respect their elders and that he should get his boys. Tully says he’s gonna get his boys, just you wait.

“Hangman” Adam Page is interviewed in the ring by Tony Schiavone.

He says he came so close to being world champion that he could smell it, but he failed, and he’s tried to run and hide from it, but the Dark Order is right and he needs that championship. So he’s here tonight to officially challenge Kenny Omega for the—

Enter Don Callis, pissing in everyone’s pool.

He says Page is spending a lot of time talking, all hat and no cattle. When he looks in the mirror at night, Adam knows he’s not that guy. The Bucks and Good Brothers run him down a little and Matt Jackson chooses to get into the ring to say it. He accuses Hangman of abandoning them and says it blows his mind that he left them for a bunch of losers.

Eventually Page has had enough and lays Jackson out, Omega’s behind him with the title but the Dark Order make the save! The Elite retreat and Kenny says Page wants a match, he’ll offer him a match, but he’ll do him one better— his guys against all of the Elite, 5-on-5 elimination rules. Page says that’s not the match he wanted, but if that’s the match he has to do, he’ll do it.

On one condition— when they win, the Dark Order also get a tag title match against the Bucks. Kenny is open to the idea but he wants there to be a carrot for the Elite— if the Elite wins, Page walks away. He’ll take an extra measure of pleasure when “cowboy shit” chants turn into “belt collector.”

The challenge issued, Page says the Dark Order doesn’t back down from a fight and he is on!

And so we go to break.

Back from commercial, Chris Jericho is interviewed about the labors Maxwell Jacob Friedman wants to put him through before getting another match.

He says that Hercules won and got what he wanted out of his labors, and he’s gonna do exactly the same thing, and it doesn’t matter who Friedman wants to pit him against, up to and including a resurrected Muhammad Ali, he’s going to get that rematch and ruin his life. You want to talk Greek mythology, he is the god of thunder and war—

Shawn Spears spikes him with a chair and chokes him! Max rolls up and says his first labor is against Spears next week, and the stipulation is that Shawn can use a chair and he can’t! They spike the injured bicep with a chairshot and leave.

Christian Cage vs. Matt Hardy

Collar and elbow, fighting around the ring, falling through the ropes and staying in the lockup, finally Hardy shoves him in the ring! Cage slides back out and pulls him through, throwing him into the barricade! Fired up, Christian goes up top... DIVING DOUBLE AXEHANDLE OVER THE POST AND TO THE FLOOR! Back in the ring, inverted DDT gets two!

Mounted punches in the corner, Matt rolls to the apron after, backhand... HANGING DDT INTO THE STEEL STEPS! Pressing the attack, catapult puts Cage into the bottom rope and Hardy comes off the second with a diving elbow and we go to break!

Back from commercial, Cage wants the Killswitch, Hardy wants the Twist of Fate, neither man can get it, Christian lying in wait, sidestep the spear but Captain Charisma gets him on the rebound... NOPE! Off the top, frog splash... NO GOOD! Back up top, Hardy with a superplex... STILL NO! Inside cradle for two, Killswitch countered with a mule kick, Twist of Fate... CAGE KICKS OUT!

Dumping Christian to the floor, Matt’s happy to take the countout but Cage recovers, underhooks...

Christian Cage wins by pinfall with the Killswitch.

Post-match, Jurassic Express come out and celebrate with Cage.

We get a promo video from Miro.

Tony Schiavone introduces Dr. Britt Baker, DMD to interview her.

She says she’s the baddest bitch on the block and if you think you see fear in her eyes, look again. But what IS daunting is keeping Nyla Rose relevant, and yes she’s beaten her multiple times and she’s on top of the food chain, but she’s on top of the menu in a league of her own. She’s gonna retain the title, but even without it, she’s the hottest thing in pro wrestling.

Vickie Guerrero cuts a response promo backstage, telling Britt her days are numbered.

Nyla says next week she’s gonna hand Baker an ass-whoopin’ world class, but don’t hold it against her, because it’s just the nature of the Beast.

Jon Moxley cuts a promo backstage where he says he’s not hunted, he’s the hunter, and if Lance Archer wants a Texas Death Match, next week he won’t only be Texas born and bred, he’ll be Texas dead.

And so we go to break.

We get a backstage segment where QT Marshall dumps a drink out over the interviewer’s head.

Darby Allin vs. “All Ego” Ethan Page (Coffin Match)

Allin charging hard out the gates, sandwiching Page in the corner and revealing a steel plate tied to his back! Coffin Drop, he takes the plate off and then hits a suicide dive to the floor! Scorpio Sky explodes out of the coffin and throws Darby into the steel steps! Here comes Sting to even the odds! He and Sky brawl, the Icon throws him into the crowd and gives chase!

We see All Ego loosening one of the turnbuckles, Scorpio sidesteps a Stinger Splash but gets crotched on the barricade! Page has completely unhooked the bottom rope but Darby takes him to the floor and they fight in front of a dude cosplaying as Jesus Christ as we go to break.

Back from commercial, Page pulls Allin back into the ring, where the steel steps are laying. Darby pulls himself up the steps, but Ethan drops him face-first into the steps! Grabbing the turnbuckle, All Ego kisses the hook and slides it into the chain Darby wears around his neck and yanks! Dragging Darby towards the coffin but Allin hits him with the turnbuckle and then fishhooks him with it!

Repositioning the steps, off the ropes... HE DROPKICKS THE STEPS INTO ETHAN AND HE FALLS INTO THE COFFIN! Allin drags himself to the apron, Page pulls him down and they brawl inside of the coffin! Paintbrushing him with big palm strikes, trying to rupture Darby’s eardrum but Allin bites his hand to get away! Page with a back body drop, out of the coffin and bleeding, All Ego throws him back in the ring!

Dragging the steps over, he picks Darby up in a fireman’s carry, elbows to slip out of it, Allin chop blocks him! Stunner! Up top, All Ego gets under him...
