Nick says no setback can keep them down, and Adam Page says they’re still standing and still swinging—
Pan to the Dark Order, who want to catch up with Hangman later. Adam says Kenny Omega is hurt, pissed off, and out of the country, but he’s not in Canada.
Commentary hypes up the rest of the show and we go to break.

“Switchblade” Jay White and “Rock Hard” Juice Robinson put their arms around him for the duration. White talks up Double or Nothing and says Ricky Starks thinks he’s on top of the world right now after eliminating both of them, but Ricky isn’t the International Champion.
Robinson addresses FTR, saying Bullet Club Gold wants to know why Dax and Cash saved Ricky Starks. It doesn’t make sense, they’re not friends, because Ricky ain’t got no friends! He says FTR are slow and look dumb too, and he didn’t actually think they were dumb enough to come get involved in the Bang Bang Gang’s business!
Juice claims they’re here to apologize and Jay does one better, saying they must want to join Bullet Club Gold! All they have to do is ask, they just better do it politely! White “accidentally” drops the mic handing it to Harwood and Robinson gets right in with a cheap shot and a brawl breaks down!

Renee Paquette interviews the Acclaimed and Daddy Ass on the stage.
Billy Gunn says things didn’t go quite as they planned but that’s okay because anybody can get beat at any given time. His regret comes from letting the two guys he cares most about down. Max Caster tells him not to blame himself, because they win as a team and they lose as a team.
Anthony Bowens says they got screwed out of tag team gold and they want gold back, and puts Billy Gunn’s 30 years over and says he deserves to hold gold one more time! They love Billy and everyone loves the Acclaimed.
Commentary hypes up the rest of the show and we go to break.
Back from commercial, Tony Schiavone is in the ring to interview “human piece of garbage” Don Callis and Konosuke Takeshita.
They make their entrance to raining torrents of boos.
Callis goes to speak but the boos are too loud. He sincerely hopes the boos are for Kenny Omega, because he’s the real victim here. He claims all of Kenny’s success has been because of him, and every morning he has to look at the scare in his head, and he blames Omega for it.
He says Kenny destroyed his family, and maybe he lost a nephew, but he gained a son, he says as he points to Takeshita. He says Konosuke is the best athlete he’s ever met, better than Rikidozan, better than Antonio Inoki, better than Akira Maeda, better than Keiji Mutoh, better than Kazuchika Okada.
And of course, better than Kenny Omega. Takeshita grabs the mic and cuts a promo in Japanese before saying in English that they’ll destroy the Elite and they will destroy Kenny Omega. Don says he’s gonna build a new family and cut the Elite out of AEW!
We get a video package of Arn Anderson talking with Wardlow about his victory and how biting the giant lizard’s thumb was no big deal. Mr. Mayhem says there are no limits to how far they go and if Luchasaurus wants next, he’ll be happy to finish the job.

HOOK interrupts him with his entrance.
La Faccion Ingobernable make their entrance to interrupt him.

Renee Paquette interviews the Outcasts backstage.
Toni Storm says she’s done what it takes to get here but nobody in that locker room is good enough to carry her bags. Ruby Soho says nobody can touch her work ethic, it’s so moving.
