Adam jaws at him and tears the shirt off his chest, MJF getting upset, Cole with forearms and Friedman shrugs them off but a gouge of the eyes takes him down! Tuning up the band, Max cuts him off and smashes his face into the turnbuckles a bunch, mounted punches follow, and Friedman caps it off with a bite!
To the floor, Max with a suicide dive and he comes up stunned that he landed it! Throwing Adam back inside, cover for two, trading quick covers, neither man can get a pin out of it, Cole slips a powerbomb, duck a lariat, leapfrog and this time the powerbomb over the knee connects... NOT ENOUGH!
Friedman up top, Cole cuts him down with a superkick and hits his own Heatseeker... MAX GETS A FOOT ON THE ROPES! Adam throws him to the floor and puts him into the steel steps... SHEERDROP BRAINBUSTER INTO THE STEEL STEPS! Bryce issuing his count, MJF not moving, but he barely beats the count!
Adam goes up top, thinking about Panama Sunrise but Friedman falls to the floor, unable to get to his feet! He trips Cole up when he follows after and clears the announce desk! Bringing Adam onto the table, Max tells himself he has to do this, it’s a title match, he goes for a Tombstone Piledriver but he can’t bring himself to do that to his best friend!
He walks away and comes back, Cole catches him and doesn’t think twice... TOMBSTONE PILEDRIVER INTO THE UNBENDING ANNOUNCE DESK! Back in the ring, cover... MJF FINDS A WAY TO KICK OUT! On their knees and to their feet, trading forearms, Friedman with a thumb to the eye, clutching his neck, Cole with a pump kick, Max with a rolling elbow, Adam with a flip piledriver, Friedman with a solebutt and both men are down!
To their feet, calling for the double clothesline, they get it, double pin... IT’S OVER?!
Bryce tells Justin Roberts, who announces it...
The match goes to a double-pin draw.
Adam Cole grabs the mic and says no way, no draw, he wants five more minutes! Max says no way, five minutes isn’t enough, they’re going until they have a winner in fuckin’ Wembley!
Trading pins, no dice, Bryce gets dropped with a shoulder! Max laughs about it and goes to the floor, looking for a chair and bringing it back into the ring. He throws it to Cole, Adam throws it back, they play Eddy Guerrero chicken waiting for Remsburg to get back up, Adam drops down, MJF horsecollars himself and lays down on the mat!
Bryce still hasn’t quite turned around, he sees it and tells Cole off, MJF pops up, schoolboy... NO! Basement superkick, Heatseeker connects... ADAM COLE WON’T STAY DOWN! Max to his feet, he goes to the apron to meet Cole, German suplex but he has to give it up because his neck hurts!
Adam hits a straitjacket German suplex on the apron! Panama Sunrise on the floor, back inside... MAX KICKS OUT! Dragging MJF into the corner, he ducks the Panama Sunrise... AND BRYCE TAKES IT INSTEAD?! Friedman finally gives in and gets the Dynamite Diamond Ring out but he’s conflicted! Crying, in visible emotional pain, he takes the ring off and stuffs it back in his trunks!
RODERICK STRONG IS BEHIND HIM! HE KICKS MAX IN THE GENTLEMAN’S AREA AND ROUSES ADAM! Cole asks what he’s doing but he’s quick to take advantage, Panama Sunrise... STILL NO REFEREE! Knee pad down, off the ropes, the Boom, he has a cover for about twelve before Remsburg stirs and crawls over for an incredibly slow count... MAXWELL JACOB FRIEDMAN WILL NOT GIVE UP HIS CROWN LIKE THAT!
Roddy screams at Cole to do it, to use the title, that HE’s his best friend! Adam looks at the title and takes his shirt off finally, he grabs the title and waits for Friedman to turn but he’s conflicted and he can’t do it! HE THROWS THE TITLE TO THE FLOOR! MAX BEING HIS FRIEND MEANS MORE THAN THE TITLE!
Strong leaves, Cole walks over to MJF, Max wakes up right on time...
Maxwell Jacob Friedman wins by pinfall with a small package, retaining the AEW World Championship.
Post-match, after a moment Max crawls over to Cole and tells him it could have went either way and these people still love him. He says he got lucky, the crowd chants to hug it out and Max leaves the ring and gets their ROH World Tag Team Championship belts.
Cole throws his out of the ring mad and Max accuses him of never giving a shit about him and tells him to admit he was never his friend, and if it was all about that he can take it, and he throws the title at him! Friedman screams at him to just get it over with and offers his back to him.
Roderick Strong is back to egg Adam Cole on but again he throws the title down! Max slowly turns around and sees that Cole hasn’t attacked him and looks on in disbelief... THEY HUG IT OUT! THEY’RE STILL FRIENDS! FRIENDSHIP IS REAL AND IT IS BEAUTIFUL!
Cole raises Max’s hand as the cconfetti rains down and the Kingdom hold Roddy in the aisle.
Excalibur announces that they’ll be back next year, All In at Wembley on August 25, 2024!
That’s the show, folks.
