  • Deeb grabs the mic after the match is over and asks if the fans missed her. She’s been stuck home for the last 15 months wondering about her future. And now she’s back, and it feels damn good to be back. Why is she here? She’s back to elevate the women’s division. She’s back to put the wrestling back into All Elite Wrestling. She is back to become champion. This isn’t what she does, it is who she is. The women’s division is on notice now that the most elite wrestler is back.
  • There is a video package hyping up four of CMLL’s best luchadors coming to AEW next week on Rampage: Mistico, Hechicero, Volador Jr., and Mascara Dorada.
  • FTR makes their entrance for the cage match main event with Daniel Garcia nowhere in sight. Mark Briscoe makes his entrance to replace him, but the lights go out. When the lights return, Briscoe is attacked by House of Black and thrown off the stage through a table. The commentators assume they are also the ones responsible for what happened to Garcia.

Brody King smashes Cash Wheeler with a diving crossobdy into the barricade. Dax is thrown head first into the chain link steel.

They both begin climbing down the other side down to the floor below. Cash is sent crashing through the table on the floor below, and has technically escaped the cage. Buddy can drop down, but decides not to. He wants to climb back in to give HOB a 2-on-1 advantage over Garcia. However, Garcia crashes into the steel from the inside, sending Buddy through a table on floor below. Buddy also technically escaped the cage and it’s now 1 vs. 1 between Malakai and Garcia. Garcia lays out Malakai and goes to climb up the cage, but Julia Hart meets him from the other side and spits mist in his face, blinding him.
