“Jungle Boy” Jack Perry vs. Matt Hardy

Collar and elbow, struggling into the corner, Perry with an arm wringer, Hardy reverses to a side headlock! Jack takes him down, looking for a keylock, reversed to a bodyscissors, both men back on their feet. Off the ropes, shoulder block from Hardy, dropkick from Jungle Boy and he kips up!

Matt to the floor, back inside, Ethan Page puts Jack out in the crowd! Hardy goes out after him after a beat but Jungle Boy has a bucket of right hands for him! Perching up on the barricade, double axhandle connects! Trading forearms up on the apron, Perry with a headbutt, lining him up but Hardy catches him and hits a Side Effect on the apron and we go to break!

Back from commercial, Hardy is in control and working Perry’s back over. Jungle Boy with a lariat, right hands, off the ropes, shoulder block, big dropkick from Jack! All Ego up on the apron again, Matt cuts Jungle Boy off with a right hand and climbs up with him... SUPERPLEX!

Cover for two... HOOK COMES DOWN TO EVEN THE ODDS! HOOK and Ethan Page brawl up the aisle, Perry dives on Hardy and takes him back inside! Diving back in, kick cuts him off, reverse the Twist of Fate, block the Side Effect, superkick and a jumping reverse STO!

Jack off the ropes...

“Jungle Boy” Jack Perry wins by pinfall with a northern forearm.

Post-match we see Darby Allin and Sammy Guevara watching in separate places backstage.

Maxwell Jacob Friedman makes his entrance, mic in hand.

He says he knows people aren’t very bright in these parts but he runs the show so shut your mouths. He’s gonna keep it real with Jungle Boy, he didn’t appreciate him interrupting his re-Bar Mitzvah, and it was kind of a Kanye move, to be honest.

But there’s one thing he said that really stuck in Max’s craw, that after Double or Nothing their career paths diverged and he had the audacity to say MJF had it easy? That he got to just waltz his way to the top of the card? He’ll tell ya something, he’s right!

His job’s a joke, he barely wrestles or breaks a sweat, he gets to obliterate these losers, he collects a fat check and gets on a lear jet back home to the most magical place in the world, Long Island, New York! And then there’s Perry’s career, which has been kind of mid.

But he’ll give him credit, he worked his ass off and scratched and clawed and had standout match after standout match for these fans. He’s honest, but he doesn’t recall these people ever thanking Jack. And he doesn’t recall him being rewarded with all that much TV time either, so he has a right to be pissed.

But he shouldn’t be pissed at MJF or this company, just at himself. After their match at Double or Nothing 2020, going to war in 90 degree weather just to prove that they’re the future of the sport, Max went to the back and had a funny feeling like he had just met his equal, the man he’d be waging war with for the rest of his life.

For the first time, he met a man in that ring that he respected, so he swallowed his pride and shook his hand backstage and gave him some advice. He asks Perry if he remembers this advice and Jack does. He says MJF told him he has all the skills and potential in the world, but nice guys finish last, and if he ever wanted to be successful, he had to ditch all his friends and not care about anybody but himself.

Max confirms that’s what he said and then gives Jungle Boy crap for sticking with Marko Stunt, Luchasaurus, and worst of all, Christian Cage, and tells him to expect HOOK to pan out the same way. They could have worked together and ran the whole show but he just had to be the good guy for these people.

These people might chant his name, but where has it gotten him? Here we stand, three years later, and MJF is the best wrestler in the world with the grandest prize of all, the AEW World Champion. And Jack, well, he’s still just Jungle Boy. Jack says he thought, a long time ago, that maybe somehow they’d be friends.

And he’ll be honest, in some ways he wishes he was more like Max. He wishes he could talk like him, that he had that confidence, that he could care about himself above everyone else, that he could stab people in the back to get what he wants, that he didn’t care about being the most narcissistic selfish piece of shit in the entire business.

But that ain’t him, and if his road to the top is harder than Max’s, so be it. He’ll do it his way, and when he beats MJF and becomes the AEW World Champion, well at least he won’t wake up alone every day and hate the person he sees in the mirror.

MJF says that was really good and asks the crowd to give it up, it only took him four years to learn how to talk! He’s right, there was one point where they could have been friends, partners even, but Jungle Boy has turned out to be a massive disappointment, no better than everyone watching.

He tells Perry he’s weak of mind, body, soul, and heart, and by the way, he pulled Jack’s hot piece of ass girlfriend Anna Jay aside and she called him with between the knees, too. Perry sets on MJF and beats him down until Max gouges his eye and turns the tide!

Jack on the comeback, stomps in the corner and a big lariat! Dragging Max to his feet for the northern lariat but MJF rolls out of the ring and holds the title high, reminding him he’s still the world champion.

Alex Marvez is in the trainer’s room to interview Don Callis and Kenny Omega while Omega gets his arm looked at.

Don tries to explain what happened last week and says he feels foolish that he grabbed Hangman Page and asks Kenny why he’d assume his friend would attack Callis in the process. Don says he’s gonna talk to Hangman and make everything right, and a disappointed Omega tells him he didn’t ask him to do anything as he rushes off and we go to break.

Back from commercial we get a vignette of 2.0 taking the Acclaimed and Daddy Ass out to try and sell them on Jericho Appreciation Society.

Blackpool Combat Club (Claudio Castagnoli, Jon Moxley, & Wheeler YUTA) vs. Dalton Castle & the Boys (Brandon & Brent Tate)

Blackpool Combat Club ambush Dalton Castle and the Boys during their entrance and beat them down! Claudio and Brandon to start when we get a bell, Castagnoli with a huge press slam out of the corner! Big lariat, chokeslam follows, straitjacket...

Blackpool Combat Club win by pinfall with a Ricola Bomb from Claudio Castagnoli on Brandon Tate.

We get a video package recapping last week’s Kenny Omega story and hyping up tonight’s match between him and Jeff Cobb.

“Hangman” Adam Page is interviewed backstage.

He says the Young Bucks have been better, Nick has a separated shoulder and Matt has a partially torn bicep, and he blames Blackpool Combat Club for the attack.

Don Callis rolls up and says he’s embarrassed about last week, he’s truly sorry and he didn’t want to get between them and he sincerely apologizes. Before Page can shake his hand, Blackpool Combat Club attack Hangman and beat him down! Callis keeps his hand extended but Mox slaps his glasses off his face and stands on Don’s head!

And so we go to break.

Back from commercial, Kenny Omega is interviewed before he makes his entrance.

Tony Schiavone informs him that Don Callis and Hangman Page were attacked by Blackpool Combat Club and he asks for a minute to compose himself before going out there.

Jeff Cobb vs. Kenny Omega (c) (IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship)

Circling, collar and elbow, Cobb rushes him into the ropes and breaks clean to send a message!

Off the ropes, taking Jeff down with a Frankensteiner, he’s got the Terminator dive scouted but Kenny shoves at him and runs the ropes for the tope con giro!

Back in, off the ropes, Kotaro Krusher, fired up, scoop lift but Jeff counters with a crossbody! Running brainbuster follows, putting boots to Kenny’s injured ribs, right hands, whip across and Omega collapses! Cobb standing on his back, hopping off, Kenny goes to the floor and Jeff follows.

Trading chops on the floor, Cobb puts him back-first into the post and we go to break!

Drawing Cobb up, electric chair...

Kenny Omega wins by pinfall with One-Winged Angel, retaining the IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship.

Post-match, Blackpool Combat Club come to ringside and circle Omega as he struggles to his feet. Getting up on the apron...


We get a video package for Ass Boys vs. FTR, titles vs. AEW careers.

The Ass Boys cut a promo backstage mocking FTR for taking 19 years to get to this point in their career while it took them all of like a year and a half. They had to bitch and moan and politic for this title shot, and they used to be their heroes, but now the Ass Boys hate them and do not respect them.

They respected one person,their father, and now they hate him, so it’ll be Top Guys, Out next week, but for real.

Andy “Butcher” Williams vs. Orange Cassidy (c) (AEW International Championship)

Butcher and Blade jump Cassidy before the bell, Blade wants to use a tire iron on him but referee Stephon Smith ejects him from ringside! Williams keeps putting boots to Orange, Smith separates them and we get a bell!

And so we go to break.

Back from commercial, “Rock Hard” Juice Robinson cuts promo on Action Andretti about how every punch in their match is gonna be meant for Ricky Starks, so he should pull up a chair and watch the example he makes, knowing that it’s a small pinprick of the asskicking he’s gonna give Starks in New York City.

Ruby Soho vs. Willow Nightingale

Soho immediately bails to hang out with her fellow Outcasts at ringside, back inside, collar and elbow, Nightingale puts her in the corner, and Ruby immediately slips out and bails to the floor again! Back inside, looking for No Future early, denied, shove off, block the tijeras, side slam!
