The show opens with the intro video.

Adam Cole, Bandido, Orange Cassidy, & Roderick Strong vs. Jericho Appreciation Society (“Cool Hand” Angelo Parker, “Red Death” Daniel Garcia, Jake Hager, & “Daddy Magic” Matt Menard)

Chris Jericho is on commentary for this one.

Strong and Garcia to start, mat grappling gives way to trading elbows, big chops from Roddy! Tags, Cole putting boots to Parker, beating him down in the corner, tag to Bandido. All eight men in the ring, a brawl breaks out, action to the floor as Hager biels Cassidy in the ring!

Orange gets a tornado DDT, off the ropes, Jake catches the suicide dive, Garcia adds a knee and Hager puts Cassidy into the post! Bandido with a tope con giro on both of them, Cole decides to go after Jericho but 2.0 cut him off and beat him down on the ramp!

Back in the ring, Bandido goes for a delayed vertical, Menard and Parker fight it but he suplexes both of them instead and we go to break!

Back from commercial, Cassidy with upkicks to Hager, Jake takes him into the corner, quick tags, Orange with a flurry of action to get away and clear a path but Matt catches him with a Manhattan Drop! Stundog Millionaire in return, tag to Strong!

Lariats, Garcia eats a Rock Bottom backbreaker, capture backbreaker on Parker, chops for Hager, thrown into the corner, boot up, enzuigiri, sidestep, Olympic Slam on Jake... NOPE! Fighting 2.0 off, Daniel blasts him with a boot but Cassidy tags in!

Garcia wants Dragonslayer, Orange crawling for the ropes and Cole breaks it up with a kick! Into “everybody do something cool” territory, Orange Punch on Hager, Garcia wants a flip piledriver but Cassidy reverses to Beach Break... SO CLOSE!

Orange trading strikes with Red Death, lazy chops, Roddy legal again, inside cradle, jumping knee, tag to Cole...

Adam Cole, Bandido, Orange Cassidy, & Roderick Strong win by pinfall with the Boom from Cole on Daniel Garcia.

Post-match, Adam is like a lightning bolt rushing to the stage to jump Chris Jericho and beat him down! Security pulls him away and Jericho is left clutching his head and yelling about it.

“Jungle Boy” Jack Perry and Darby Allin are interviewed backstage by Renee Paquette.

Perry says they don’t like each other but they’ve got a couple things in common— they’ve been here since day one, busted ass to get where they are, never main evented a pay-per-view but they’re gonna be in the main event of Double or Nothing after tonight.

Darby says hook or by crook they’re gonna be in that main event and one of them is coming home with the title, and it’ll be showtime.

And so we go to break.

Back from commercial, we see the tear in the stage that Adam Cole made jumping Chris Jericho moments ago.

We cut backstage to security escorting Adam Cole out of the arena while Jericho shouts about him being dangerous. Dr. Britt Baker, DMD shows up to yell at him, slap him across the face, and tear his shirt off and leave him crying in the parking lot.

Blackpool Combat Club cut a promo.

Bryan Danielson says there’s a certain legend who said he was the best there is, best there was, and best there ever will be, but didn’t have the foresight to see that someone would be better than he, and he’s better than that legend, and if he’s not, one of the other Blackpool guys is. He knows that there will be better wrestlers than he is one day, and hell he hopes Wheeler YUTA, the little shit, ends up being better than he is because unlike the Elite, they want AEW to be the best wrestling company possible, and they’ll do anything to make that happen.

Jon Moxley says they’re blades searching for pieces of iron to sharpen each other, and the Elite should be grateful to be sharpened. They’re not bullies, higher levels, bigger devils, and there was a time when the Elite were on the cutting edge, but he doesn’t know anymore.

Moxley and Omega in a steel cage next week, that hits different don’t it? 2019, 2020, may as well have been a decade ago, and every day they get better, new tools, new weapons, and a whole new Jon Moxley he can’t wait to show Kenny next Wednesday.

He promises he’s gonna leave one hell of a mark.

Saraya vs. Willow Nightingale

Saraya to the floor, Willow gives chase and runs into Ruby Soho and Toni Storm on the floor. Backing off, Saraya blasts her with a kick, clubbing blows, sleeper applied but Nightingale slings her off and knocks her down with a shoulder block!

Up in the turnbuckles, missile dropkick, Willow ends up on the floor with the Outcasts beating her up and we go to break.

Back from commercial, Nightingale with a spinebuster, Saraya with a double leg, stepping through, reversed, small package... NOPE! Saraya hits her Lightning Spiral, only two! Willow with a nearfall, Toni up on the apron for a distraction, Soho in the ring, Nightingale pounds her and blasts Storm to the floor with an elbow!

Saraya slides in there...

Saraya wins by pinfall with her capture DDT.

Post-match, the Outcasts beat Nightingale down until Hikaru Shida makes the save, kendo stick in hand! SHE DROPS THE KENDO STICK AND EMBRACES THE OUTCASTS! She takes the can of spray paint from them and they hold Willow up!

Team DMD hit the ring on the other side of them and Shida sprays the Outcasts in the face with the paint! It was a ruse! She beats the Outcasts down righteous with the kendo stick!

Hikaru tells the camera she’s back!

House of Black get a promo where they say the trios titles are tainted and serve as a reminder that in this company some get away with murder and some are punished for following the rules. Change starts when people act, and welcome to the open house.

No shortcuts, no escape, no mercy. Any three competitors can challenge for the titles, under the following rules— 20 count on the floor, no rope breaks, disqualifications will be enforced or not at the request of the challengers because that’s the only way to truly make it fair

El Hijo del Vikingo and Lucha Brothers make their entrance together and we go to break.

Tres de Mayo Trios Battle Royal

Chaotic brawling to start, Ari Daivari eliminated early, Evil Uno shortly thereafter, Vikingo sends Josh Woods packing, QT Marshall eliminates Alex Reynolds but Fenix and Penta take him and Aaron Solo out! Attacking Powerhouse Hobbs, stereo superkicks but he straightens up and takes the straps down!

QT and Solo trap the Brothers and Hobbs eliminates them! Vikingo with a kick, off the ropes, suicide dive under the top rope, back in, caught and Hobbs eliminates him by military pressing him to the floor! Big lariat for Daddy Ass, the Acclaimed holding court but Butcher eliminates Max Caster!

Butcher and Blade scissor, John Silver with a delayed vertical on the Blade! Float over a slam from Butcher, pump kick, boot to the back of the head, German suplex connects but Blade eliminates Silver! Down to the Acclaimed vs. Butcher, Blade, and Kip Sabian, heels in control, Stunner on Billy Gunn and a lariat follows!

Gunn to the apron, he avoids being elimianted, Bowens dumps Blade to the floor to even the odds! Anthony lighting Kip and Butcher up, he gets tossed but hangs in there until Daddy Ass saves him! Whip across, Billy with a knee, superkick from Bowens, front kick, calling for it, stereo Fameassers!

Daddy Ass & the Acclaimed win, last eliminating Butcher, Blade, & Kip Sabian.

Sammy Guevara is interviewed backstage.

Before he can answer, Maxwell Jacob Friedman rolls up all smiles. Sammy accuses him, saying he watched the show last week, nobody was in the car when he pulled away. A tearful MJF says he has back problems and he wanted to lay down in the car but he was afraid to tell Sammy and he’s a bad friend and he’s sorry.

Guevara kisses him on the forehead and everything is mended. MJF says he got their themes mashed up for tonight and they hug and we go to break.

Back from commercial, Kenny Omega and Don Callis respond to Jon Moxley’s promo.

Callis shows off the gnarly scar on his forehead and says he thinks about it every day and Mox’s heavy hands can’t beat his brains and Kenny’s talent. Omega says there’s no planet in this universe where Jon can touch him, and he might make Kenny bleed, but at the end of the day, everything comes to an end in Detroit.

This whole effort will be fruitless, what they did to him and the Young Bucks and to Don, they made it personal and it ends next week.

Logan Easton LaRoux vs. Wardlow

Between this and Adrian Alanis on Raw is a good week for guys I liked seeing on the indies five years ago getting squashed on cable, wow.


Wardlow wins by pinfall with the Powerbomb Symphony.

Post-match, Wardlow calls Christian Cage out and demands that he and Luchasaurus accept an open challenge for the TNT Championship here and now.

Christian Cage and Luchasaurus make their entrance.

Cage says he could send his right hand of destruction to the ring right now if he wanted to, but that’s not gonna happen, especially not in Baltimore, and especially because he wants the title shot for himself, not for Luchasaurus.

And so we go to break.

Back from commercial, Jeff Jarrett, Sonjay Dutt, Jay Lethal, and Satnam Singh roll up to the Briscoe farm to help Mark Briscoe with chores to make up for how their attempt to help him in the ring went. Jeff Jarrett is about to play With My Baby Tonight but Papa Briscoe rolls up and they scatter.

He has a heart-to-heart with Mark, saying he knows Lethal is okay but he doesn’t trust the rest of them. Jay challenges FTR for the tag titles at Double or Nothing and asks for tips to beat them.

“Rock Hard” Juice Robinson vs. “Absolute” Ricky Starks

Action quickly to the floor, Robinson wants a piledriver but Starks back body drops him! Fighting over the steps, Ricky puts him into the post and body slams him off of the steel steps and to the floor and we go to break!

Back from commercial, big back body drop from Starks, tornado DDT connects... NOPE! Cannonball senton from Robinson, setting Ricky up top, avalanche Frankensteiner and he follows it with a lariat... NOPE! Juice Is Loose reversed, schoolboy for two!

Cross chop to the throat cuts Starks off, blocks the Juice again, off the ropes, big spear sets him up...

Ricky Starks wins by pinfall with Roshambo.

Post-match, “Switchblade” Jay White blindsides Starks and puts boots to him! Ricky reverses Blade Runner but Juice makes the save and Bullet Club Gold make their retreat!

We get a hype reel for the Firm Deletion.

Commentary hypes up our next week of cards.

We see Darby Allin and Jungle Boy getting each other fired up backstage. Darby leaves and MJF slides in to talk to Jack Perry.

He says he still thinks the two of them could be on top of the company if Jungle Boy just dropped the goody two shoes act, just look at what he’s done for Sammy. All he has to do is cost Darby the match tonight, and why give up a spot in the main event?

Max says he loves Jack like a brother but he’s not world champion material and he’s offering him a seat next to the throne. Perry slaps his hand away and says he’s looking for the crown and Darby comes looking for him and they have a tense moment as we go to break.

Darby Allin & “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry vs. Maxwell Jacob Friedman & Sammy Guevara

Perry and Guevara to start, a little light lucha, big arm drag, dropkick, kip-up and Sammy seeks solace in Friedman’s arms! Tags made, circling, collar and elbow, arm drags, and the heels bail to the floor to conference. Back inside, Perry legal, collar and elbow, MJF backs him into the corner and lets Sammy eat a shot that knocks him to the floor!

Pulling Max in, tag to Allin, double back elbows, Darby goes after Guevara and Friedman blasts him with an elbow from behind! Sammy draws Allin up, snapmare, using the scarf for some cheap shots, Darby gets the scarf and takes him out with a scarf-assisted standing Diamond Dust and we go to break.

Back from commercial, Sammy with a Cobra Twist and a hand from MJF but referee Bryce Remsburg kicks his arm away! Allin gets away, tag made, Perry in with a diving crossbody, elbows for everybody! Dives on both sides of the ring, again and again!

Tope con giro connects, Tiger Driver back in the ring... SO CLOSE! Tag to Sammy, Darby back in, lighting him up with palm strikes, Yoshi Tonic, MJF reverses one on him into a powerbomb... SO CLOSE! Snare Trap is on Friedman in the middle of the ring but Sammy returns and breaks it up with a double stomp!

Passing him to the floor, Guevara dives and throws Perry back in the ring! Hammerlock DDT... JUNGLE BOY KICKS OUT! Powerbomb onto the knee, Guevara with a tag, cover... NOT ENOUGH! Max berates Sammy for not doing the deal, Guevara lays him out with a superkick!

Perry with a superkick, northern elbow, blind tag from Darby, up top...

Darby Allin & “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry win by pinfall with a Coffin Drop from Allin on Sammy Guevara, earning themselves spots in the world title match at Double or Nothing.

Post-match, MJF is apoplectic about being stuck in a four-way.

That’s the show, folks.
