“He is sending a message to Moxley. This is what you have in store for you next week on Dynamite,” said Jericho of Hangman.
A tenacious Wheeler followed Hangman to the outside with a tope! Yuta attempted another tope but Page caught him and countered with a powerbomb on the ring apron. Back in the ring, Page blasted Wheeler with a pop-up Liger Bomb for a near fall!

Footage was shown filmed after Dynamite when Renee Paquette tried to interview Ruby Soho following Ruby’s match.
Dr. Britt Baker interrupted the interview.
Soho: “I should have known your thirsty ass couldn’t avoid the spotlight. I never wanted or needed your help.”
Baker: “Look, Ruby, I don’t like you either, but maybe it’s time I finally admit you have some importance to this women’s division. Why don’t you grow a backbone and pick a side. If you’re smart you’ll know which side to pick.”
Powerhouse Hobbs vs. Tony Mudd!
Hobbs clobbered Mudd with a running lariat. Hobbs followed up with an elbow strike and then squashed his opponent in the corner. Hobbs hoisted his opponent into the torture rack and then slammed in hard onto the mat, pinning him for the quick victory!
Backstage Top Flight said they called AR Fox and they are now issuing a challenge to the Young Bucks and Kenny Omega to a trios match!
“The Natural” Dustin Rhodes was being interviewed by Renee Paquette backstage when Swerve Strickland and the Mogul Affiliates came onto the scene.
Strickland: “You’re coming in here trying to make this all about you, man. Yo, am I going to have to take out another old man like I almost did with Billy Gunn and add the Natural to that list, too?”
Rhodes: “You need to step back.”
Strickland: “The nerve of you Rhodes family guys. Your brother ain’t s—t, and let’s not talk about your dad.”
