“Smart” Mark Sterling was backstage with Tony Nese trying to get Swerve Strickland removed from the roster for being a snake. Keith Lee refused to sign the petition because he said Strickland is still his partner.
We heard from Christian Cage & Luchasaurus!
Christian Cage: “So here we are on the heels of Blood & Guts and I am the “Cage” that everybody is talking about. You ignorant people are demanding answers, wanting to know why Luchasaurus decided to remain aligned with me.”
Matt Hardy’s music began to play and Matt walked out onto the ramp!
Hardy: “Christian Cage, you are unreal. I’ll be honest, Jungle Boy was my friend. Jungle Boy trusted you. He respected you. And you screwed him over. He didn’t deserve that.”
Christian Cage: “You’re going to sit here and pretend all of a sudden you’re buddy-buddy with Jungle Boy. You’re starting to make your brother sound like the sober one.”
Hardy: “I see what you’re doing with Luchasaurus. You want to use him to make as much big money as you can. Hey, I’m not going to be a hypocrite. I did the same with Private Party and Butcher and the Blade, and I regret that. And the last month of my life has been a mess, but I’m out here right now to make sure no one else gets taken advantage of.”
Christian Cage: “You’re out here because you’re a clout chaser, Matt Hardy. You’ll use your kids, your wife, your father-in-law, you’ll even turn a blind eye to your brother just so you can have one last run. I am the hottest, most influential star in AEW, and you just wanted to be near me. Your brother isn’t even the most embarrassing thing to your family—you are!”
Luchasaurus began to assault Matt Hardy, throwing him into the steel ring steps! Matt Hardy tried to fight back but Luchasaurus booted Hardy’s head which was sandwiched against the ring post. Luchasaurus choke slammed Matt Hardy through the time keeper’s table!
Tony Schiavone was backstage with Jake Hager and Claudio Castagnoli.
Hager: “Deep down inside, Claudio knows he’s not as tough as I am. He’s never been a world champion and he won’t be one here in AEW.”
Claudio: “My team beat your team at Blood & Guts. Next week I’m going to go three and zero against you.”

Powerhouse Hobbs and “Absolute” Ricky Starks stormed out with a microphone! Hobbs said he was tired of being disrespected.

AEW World Tag Team Champions The Young Bucks walked out onto the ramp!
Matt Jackson: “Hey guys, great match! This tag division is on fire. Everyone is eating well. But let us not forget who set the damn table in the first place.”
Nick Jackson: “You two teams are very good. At DOUBLE OR NOTHING, you two had a hell of a match. Four and a half stars. You couldn’t get the job done, though. Jurassic Express beat you, and guess who beat them?”
Matt Jackson: “How about next week, a three-way tag team title match?
Up next: Eddie Kingston was interviewed in the ring by Tony Schiavone!
Kingston: “Before we get to Jericho…Wardlow, congratulations. And congratulations to everybody on the team who won Blood & Guts, even you Claudio.
“Chris Jericho, you made me a liar. I didn’t taste your blood. You didn’t bleed.”

Negative One took the microphone but was interrupted by QT Marshall!
Marshall: “I get it, your dad is from Rochester. Your dad is a legend but you take after your mother. I didn’t bring my friends out here Negative One. So let’s face each other man to man.”
“Hangman” Adam Page’s music hit and Page walked to send QT into the ring. The Dark Order whooped QT Marshall!
