Tonight’s card features Thunder Rosa defending the AEW Women’s World title against Nyla Rose. That’s one of three belt battles coming our way. The show will also see Sammy Guevara attempt to reclaim the TNT title from Scorpio Sky, while Ring of Honor World champion Jonathan Gresham is challenged by Dalton Castle.

Enjoy the show!


AEW BATTLE OF THE BELTS 2 RESULTS

TNT Championship: Sammy Guevara defeats Scorpio Sky to win title. When Sammy had momentum to finish, Ethan Page ran in to pull Sky out of the ring. Tay Conti was up in Page’s face. Sammy took flight for a shooting star press to the outside onto Page and Sky. When Sammy was peaking again, Dan Lambert hopped onto the apron as a distraction. That backfired when Conti knocked Sky’s hands off the ropes into a roll-up. Lambert was irate, so he waved down Paige VanZant. Conti and VanZant brawled on the ramp. Sky poked Sammy in the eye, so Sammy low-blowed Sky. GTH by Sammy to win.

ROH World Championship: Jonathan Gresham retains against Dalton Castle. Gresham dodged a high boot to stomp on Castle’s foot. That set up the octopus submission. Gresham cranked hard down to the mat forcing a submission victory to retain gold.

After the match, Jay Lethal, Sonjay Dutt, and the giant Satnam Singh stormed the ring. Singh double chokeslammed the Tate Twins (Castle’s boys) and smashed Castle into the ring steps. Singh entered the ring to stare down Gresham. Lethal used the distraction for a Lethal Injection to Gresham. Lee Moriarty and Matt Sydal ran out for the save, but they were handled by Singh. Samoa Joe! Joe brought a metal pipe with him. Once he entered the ring, the scoundrels immediately exited.

AEW Women’s World Championship: Thunder Rosa retains against Nyla Rose. The Native Beast was in control after a jackhammer-style suplex. Nyla took to the air but missed a flying senton. Thunder tried to rally only to run right into a powerslam. Thunder wouldn’t quit and connected on a hurricanrana pin to win.
