Post-match, Orange gives Bandido a pair of sunglasses and embraces him before reaising his hand.
Renee Paquette interviews Adam Cole backstage.
Cole says he’s going to the ring to call Chris Jericho out tonight and show him exactly the mistake that he’s made, and if he doesn’t come down, he’ll go find him.
Orange Cassidy and Bandido roll up and Orange asks for an interview. She explains she’s busy getting to the bottom of the Adam Cole story and he and Bandido walk off saying “Oh.” one after the other.
And so we go to break.
Back from commercial, Darby Allin and “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry are interviewed.
Darby says if Jack believes in this pillar stuff, he’ll have his back. Perry says they said some harsh things last week and it would have been nice if it was the two of them this week, and Allin agrees because he thinks he’d win. Darby says he’ll see him out there later tonight.
Dax Harwood vs. Jeff Jarrett
Collar and elbow, struggling around the ring, Jarrett into the corner and we get a clean break. Back to the lockup, Jeff with an arm drag, he goes to strut and Harwood rushes him, so he hides in the ropes! Headscissors, Dax fights out but ends right in a side headlock, heel trip and he walks all over Harwood!
Shot off, shoulder block, drop down, duck a lariat, slide under, Double J with an arm drag, a hip toss, and a body slam! Jeff does the strut and poses for the camera but turns around into a vicious series of chops!

Wardlow vs. Enhancement Talent
Alas I didn’t catch this fellow’s name.
Big headbutt and a lariat, right into the powerbombs...
Wardlow wins by pinfall with the Powerbomb Symphony.
Post-match Arn Anderson tells the kid to get in an ice bath and drink a twelve-pack after this, and says people have been wondering why he’d align with Wardlow.
He’s been in this business for forty years and he’s figured out who’s who in the dressing room. It’s ironic that tomorrow is the NFL draft and you get that number one pick and turn a team that’s pretty good into a dynasty, and Wardlow is AEW’s dynasty. Wardlow has a future unlike anyone in the back and he could put AEW on his shoulders and carry the company into the next millennium.
Arn tells him there’s some stuff he’s gonna have to agree with, sometimes you’re gonna have to pull an eye out, wrench a thumb off, crack a man over the head with a chair...
Enter Christian Cage, with Luchasaurus in tow.
They stalk around ringside while Cage’s music plays and no proper confrontation occurs.
Renee Paquette interviews Sammy Guevara.
Maxwell Jacob Friedman comes up to tell him it’s his big night and kiss him on his forehead, and Sammy kisses his forehead and tells him that it’s THEIR big night. They complain about everybody complaining about them and say they don’t care, because Sam’s getting a fat check and Max keeps the reign of terror rolling.
Guevara has a present for MJF, and it’s a matching vest! He puts it on Friedman and Max of course has a gift for him, which is a matching scarf. They hug cheek to cheek and we go to break.
Back from commercial, RJ City is backstage and Jon Moxley clobbers him upside the head!
He gets on the mic as Claudio Castagnoli and Wheeler YUTA come up behind him. He says tonight is a big night for Blackpool Combat Club, and they have some scars to leave.
Darby Allin vs. Sammy Guevara (AEW World Championship #1 Contender’s Tournament Finals)
Maxwell Jacob Friedman is on commentary for this one, eating pickles.
Allin with a headlock takeover, grounding Guevara, block the shoot off, second try, reverse to a wristlock, back to the side headlock. Into the corner, duck a dirty break, up and over, off the ropes, leapfrog, springboard arm drag! Off the ropes, dropdown, rolling headlock takeover!
Enzuigiri connects, stomp to the ribs, jackknife pin, back to the headlock takeover! Headscissors into a cloverleaf and Sammy has to crawl... HE GETS THE ROPES! A knee to the back sends Darby to the floor, Guevara goes after him and puts him into the post!
Fighting over a suplex in the ropes, huge palm strike from Allin, choking Sammy in the ropes! Guevara with a mule kick to the gentleman’s area, moonsault to the floor and we go to break!
Back from commercial, Guevara sidesteps a suicide dive and goes under the ring and gets a table out! Darby sets him up on the table, breaks the count, heads up top but Tay Melo runs interference and Sammy hits the Spanish Fly off the top... ALLIN GETS A HAND ON THE ROPES!
Guevara puts Darby through the table, rolls inside to take the count... ALLIN BEATS THE COUNT! MJF gets up from commentary and heads to ringside, Darby sidesteps the charge, shotgun dropkick, up top but Max gets on the apron and throws him the skateboard! Sammy with a flat back bump, referee Paul Turner falls for it...
Sammy Guevara wins by disqualification with the Eddy Guerrero Special, and becomes #1 contender to the AEW World Championship.
MJF raises Sammy’s hand and they put boots to Darby! Referee Paul Turner tries to restore order but it takes Jungle Boy’s music hitting before the heels scatter!
Tony Schiavone gets some news at commentary while Allin and Perry bicker in the ring and Guevara and Friedman gloat on the stage. Max gets on the mic and tells them to beat the hell out of each other because it’s just going to make the moment better for him.
He tells them they suck and should go back to the undercard.
Tony Schiavone gets on the mic and calls Friedman a prick before saying he just spoke with Tony Khan and Sammy earned a title shot, yes, but he may not be the only one, because next week Jungle Boy and Darby will team against them and if the babyfaces win, they get added to the match!
And so we go to break.
Back from commercial, Renee Paquette tries to interview MJF and Sammy Guevara.
Max pops off on Tony Khan and says it’s been like this since day one but as long as he’s champion the belt goes with him. He drives off by himself after telling Sammy there’s “no room” in his car.
Adam Cole makes his entrance and get on the mic.
He curses at Chris Jericho and calls him down, saying it’s one thing to run his mouth, to jump him and beat him up, but handcuffing him and watching as he orchestrated a beatdown for Britt Baker, that’s unforgivable and he’ll hurt him bad. He calls Chris out again and goes to leave to find him, but—
Judas plays and Jericho appears on the tron.
He laughs off the idea of coming and fighting him because he doesn’t want to be near a man who’d let the love of his life get beaten in front of him. He says Cole is a coward and he won’t come near him, but his guys will.
Enter the Jericho Appreciation Society, stalking down to the ring and overwhelming Adam with That Damn Numbers Game! ORANGE CASSIDY AND BANDIDO MAKE THE SAVE! Soon enough they succumb to the JAS’ superior numbers...
END OF HEARTACHE PLAYS! RODERICK STRONG IS HERE! BACKBREAKERS FOR EVERYBODY! COLE AND STRONG STARE AT EACH OTHER FOR A LONG BEAT BEFORE HUGGING!
QTV are doing their thing but who cares Roderick Strong is All Elite.
Will Hobbs storms in and threatens QT Marshall but who cares Roddy’s here and he has End of Heartache.
QT makes excuses and promises Hobbs he’ll be a champion again, Will tells him to fix it, he goes to plan B but again, Roddy? Here?
Jade Cargill (c) vs. Taya Valkyrie (AEW TBS Championship)
Collar and elbow, Cargill shrugs her off and lands a jab. Valkyrie with a slap and Jade unloads on her with chops and forearms! Whip across, Taya with a lariat, to the floor, jump over a lariat, Cargill trips her into the splits, inverted headlock elbow drop off the apron and to the floor and we go to break.
Back from commercial, Cargill with a nearfall, sidestep a pump kick, Taya landing strikes, Blue Thunder Driver... JADE KICKS OUT! Up top, jockeying for position, back on the mat, drawing Valkyrie up, flip piledriver... SO CLOSE! Up for Jaded, reversed, arm drag, off the ropes, solebutt, mat slam, double stomp for two!
Taya goes for Road to Valhalla forgetting about the stipulation, denied, Cargill thinks fast...
Jade Cargill wins by pinfall with a schoolboy pin to retain the AEW TBS Championship.
Post-match, Taya’s pissed and throws Jade’s entourage around but the champion bails out of the ring. She goes to hit Road to Valhalla on Aubrey Edwards but referees break it up!
Dr. Britt Baker, DMD and Jamie Hayter cut promos on the Outcasts backstage.
Britt says they’re decent human beings until they have a reason not to be, and Jamie calls them sneaky and says this is far from over.
Bullet Club Gold cut a promo about their match on Rampage this week.
Commentary hypes up our next week of cards.

Blade and Takeshita to start, whip to the corner, big chop from Parks gets a forearm in return! Clubbing blows, Pepper rakes his face but Konosuke hits a heel kick and tags Omega in! Arm wringer, into the corner, axhandle, quick tags as they work the Blade over.
To the floor, Terminator dive attempt, Kip Sabian runs interference and Kenny goes to contront him but the Bunny gets in the way and Butcher blindsides him! Arabian press Asai moonsault from Kip and we go to break!

Kenny blocks the powerbomb neckbreaker, Takeshita with a Frankensteiner, trading strikes, V-Trigger, Blue Thudner Driver... BLADE BREAKS IT UP! Jumping knee, Dragon suplex, tope con giro takes Blade out!
Back to Butch, Konosuke waits for him to rise...
Kenny Omega & Konosuke Takeshita win by pinfall with the Powerdrive Knee from Takeshita on the Butcher.
Bryan Danielson gets on the mic and says he sees one professional wrestler who got the pin, and one amateur who’s exhausted, his best days behind him, living on the legacy he built in Japan. He says if Takeshita trained with BCC he’d be a world-beater but if he trains with the Elite he’d be like Nakazawa, washing them in the showers.
The rest of BCC hits the ring to beat Omega down! Bryan says last week they started something, and this week they’re gonna end it, and he’s got the screwdriver! He gives it to Jon Moxley but the Young Bucks make the save! Superkick Parties for Claudio and YUTA and Omega hits a Dragon suplex on Jon!
The Bucks hit the ring, Superkick Party connects! Danielson tries to take Takeshita into going in the ring and he does, getting between Omega and Moxley! Blackpool pulls the Bucks out of the ring, Mox shoves Takeshita into Omega and hits Paradigm Shift!
Danielson and Castagnoli raise Konosuke’s hands but he’s not having it! Bryan tells him to think about what he’s doing and tells him he wants to be with the BCC! Wheeler low blows him and Moxley spikes Takeshita with the screwdriver over and over and over!
We see the blood pouring out of Konosuke’s head as Blackpool Combat Club leave the ring.
That’s the show, folks.
