“It is a sharpshooter stare down!” said Tony Schiavone. 


Claudio and Dax smacked each other with open palm strikes, then transitioned to forearm shots. Dax hit a desperation spinebuster on Claudio. 


The fans chanted “This is awesome! This is awesome!”


The fans stood to their feet and applauded all four wrestlers as both teams countered tandem offense from the other. FTR were going for the Shatter Machine, but Claudio prevented it and put Cash in the Giant Swing! Yuta dropkicked Cash and Claudio covered Cash for the pin, but Dax jumped in to make the save.


FTR finally hit the Shatter Machine on Claudio and went for the cover, but Wheeler Yuta was there to break up the pin attempt just in the nick of time! Cash placed Claudio in a Sharpshooter! Claudio turned it around, applying the move on Cash! Dax grabbed Yuta and put Yuta in the Sharpshooter for another stare down. Claudio released the hold and spiked Dax with a Gotch style piledriver. Cash planted Claudio with a piledriver and covered him for a two-count!


Bobby Cruise announced there is one minute remaining in the match.


Claudio planted Cash face first. Claudio put Cash in the cross face! The bell rang as the 20-minute time limit expired and the match was announced as a draw!


Dax: “These guys are fighters! And we love to kick ass! I say five more minutes!”


Brandon Cutler walked onto the ramp. “Whoa! I’m here on behalf of our EVPs, Matthew and Nicholas, and they just sent me the contract to this match, which says twenty minutes! So, I’m sorry to be a stickler but the match clearly says twenty! Claudio put Cutler in the Giant Swing! Yuta dropkicked Cutler! FTR rocked Cutler with the Shatter Machine and then tore up the contract!


Claudio: “Cutler ruined it. But I’ll tell you this, anytime, anyplace, we’re on!”


“An issue that is not yet done,” said Schiavone.


“I’d love to see them run it back too, but do you think the EVPs are going to let that happen?” wondered Nigel.


Lexy Nair interviewed Kyle O’Reilly backstage!


Roderick Strong and the Undisputed Kingdom interrupted.


Roddy said Kyle has looked good, but not great, since his return. Roddy said he’s beaten Orange twice, so if he needed any advice, he was happy to help. Kyle said thanks, but he didn’t need it.


Roddy: “Hey! Just remember what you told me when you came back.”


Kris Statlander (with Stokely Hathaway) vs. Robyn Renegade!


Statlander whipped Robyn into the turnbuckles. Kris rocked Robyn with a power bomb! Kris finished off Robyn with Saturday Night Fever and pinned Robyn in a decisive pin!


Stokely: “This woman standing next to me is an inspiration. She’s my muse. I wish that I had the strength of Kris Statlander, and the speed, and the intensity. And I wish that I could decimate an entire division with the snap of my fingers just like Kris! 


“Earlier today I had a conversation with Tony Khan. For the first time ever, we were on the same page. I told Tony that Kris Statlander is the past, the present, and the future of AEW! And also, she is going to make history. Because she will be the first woman to win the TBS Championship and win the AEW World Women’s Championship! 


“And you may be asking yourself how. She’s going to make history again because I am announcing right now that she is the first entrant into the 2024 Owen Hart Foundation Cup Tournament! And she’s going to win, she’s going to go on to Wembley, she’ll win there against whoever is champion, and hold the AEW Women’s World Championship high. And there is no one who can stop her!”


Lexy Nair interviewed Willow Nightingale backstage and asked for her reaction!


Willow said she was announcing that she too, is entering the 2024 Owen Hart Foundation Cup Tournament, “…and Kris, I hope to see you there!”


Dustin Rhodes vs. Johnny TV (with Taya Valkyrie)!


Dustin connected with a cannonball off the apron onto Johnny TV. Dustin rocked Johnny with a chop! Taya distracted Dustin long enough for Johnny TV to hit a tornillo on Dustin Rhodes. 


Johnny and Dustin slugged it out in the middle of the ring. Dustin blasted Johnny with a running bulldog. Dustin followed up with a couple of standing lariats and then a quick power slam on Johnny TV for a near fall.


Johnny TV nailed Dustin with a neck breaker. Dustin fired back with a Canadian Destroyer! Dustin kicked Johnny with a low blow as the ref was dealing with Taya. Dustin planted Johnny with the Cross Rhodes and went for the cover, but Taya grabbed Johnny’s foot and put it on the rope to break up the pin. The referee ejected Taya! Johnny stunned Dustin with a thrust kick when Dustin turned around. 


Johnny rocked Dustin with three knee strikes. Johnny went for the Starship Pain, but Dustin dodged it. Dustin planted Johnny with the Cross Rhodes and this time scored the pin on Johnny!


“Wow, Dustin earned this one,” said Schiavone.


“Did he ever!” replied Nigel.


Dustin: “This doesn’t happen a lot for me, standing in the ring after the match. I’ve got two things I’ve got to talk to you about tonight. Number one is you. For almost 37 years, you guys have not abandoned me. I appreciate and love you all. I want to thank everyone in the back, and Tony Khan. Most importantly, I want to thank these cameramen. These are the best cameramen in the business.


“The second thing and the most important, I want to talk about the one they call ‘Scapegoat’ Jack Perry. Jack, when you left, we missed you. And when you came back, we were happy to see you, but what did you do? You attacked my boss. The man who pays my paychecks and who ultimately gave you a second chance. 


“You disgust me, Jack Perry. You joined with The Elite. Lately, Jack, I’ve been hearing you talk about sacrifice and how much you’ve sacrificed for this business. Let me tell you something, boy. You were born with a silver spoon in your mouth. You’ve never worked a day in your life. 


“For 37 years I have sacrificed for my family, the most important thing in my life. Jack to put it simply, you ain’t sacrificed s—t! When I met you as a little boy, I took a picture with you and I thought, what a cool little kid. But you’re mediocre now because you’re a follower and not a leader. And to quote my late father, if you’re a follower, the view never changes!


“Jack, you and I have a match this Wednesday on Dynamite. Jack, I am going to destroy your little punk ass. You can’t beat me fair and square. And I’ll mark my whole career on that. This Wednesday night when it’s all over and you’re lying in a pile of heap, you will never forget my name, ‘The Nature’ Dustin Rhodes!”


A video package aired for Zack Sabre Jr!

Premier Athletes—Tony Nese & Ariya Daivari (with “Smart” Mark Sterling)

The Premier Athletes charged at their opposition, bludgeoning them in the corner like two runaway locomotives. Tony spiked Trip on the mat and pinned him!


“Mark Sterling has a winning tag team here! New and improved,” said Nigel.


A vignette aired for Scorpio Sky!


Scorpio Sky: “There’s a gap in this company and I feel it. One by one your heroes have fallen in this company. Now is the time for all of us to come together. I will be your hero. I will be your voice. And eventually I will be your champion. Because I’m here for you. 


AEW Women’s World Champion “Timeless” Toni Storm (with Mariah May & Luther)

Lady Frost!


Lady Frost showed off her gymnastics background and connected with a moonsault off the apron and onto the champ. Storm hit the hip attack on Lady Frost, but Frost kicked out at the two-count!

Storm walloped Frost with a sit out powerbomb. Toni Storm nailed Lady Frost with the Storm Zero and pinned Lady Frost!


“Cinematic excellence!” said Nigel. 


“A classic win for a classic champion,” replied Tony Schiavone. 


Toni: “Mariah, I know you’ve been having a real tough time lately. And in a few short weeks I’ll be facing your friend and your former partner Mina Shirakawa. And I know that must be very awkward for you. But darling, I love you so much. I’m so proud of you and I want you to have all the same opportunities as me, but I never had anyone look out for me. And that’s what I’m going to do for you. So, as AEW Women’s World Champion I am demanding that you be entered into the Owen Hart Foundation Cup Tournament!”


“And I’m going to be there for you. And we’re going to get through this together!”


Tony Schiavone announced that next week it’ll be the One Year Anniversary of AEW Collision and there will be a TNT Championship Qualifying Match between Lee Moriarty and Dante Martin, and everyone will be barred from ringside!
