Renee Paquette interviewed Darby Allin and “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry backstage!


Darby: “Jack, last week we said things to each other that took things a bit too far. If you care about any of this pillar stuff, all I’m saying is have my back tonight.”

Arn Anderson grabbed a microphone after the match.


Arn Anderson: “I’ve been in this business for 40 years and I’ve been walking these halls for three years. It’s ironic that tomorrow is the NFL draft. You get a good team and a good pick and create a dynasty. Wardlow, you are the dynasty in AEW. But there’s a couple of things you need to agree with me on. Sometimes you’ll need to pull a guy’s eye out or bite a thumb off. Maybe you’ll have to pick up a chair and crack somebody over the head—"


Christian Cage and Luchasaurus walked down to the ring!


Christian Cage walked up the ring steps and stopped short of entering the ring.


“He’s playing mind games,” said Tony Schiavone.

But next week on Dynamite, there’s going to be a tag team match, where Jungle Boy and Darby Allin will face you two guys. And if you two guys can win, then the match will be as advertised. But if Jungle Boy and Darby win, then at Double Or Nothing on pay-per-view, it’ll be a Pillars Four-Way Match!”

Jericho’s music hit and Jericho appeared on the giant screen!
