AEW Women’s World Champion Toni Storm and Saraya stormed out to the ring!
Toni Storm: “Congrats on your win. You’ve been losing a lot and the reason why you’ve been losing so much is because you’re a loser. And the reason why you’re such a loser is because you’re Canadian.”
Taya: “OK, don’t you have something else you should be worrying about, like that championship?”
Toni: “I don’t worry about that because I’ve already beaten everyone.”
Taya: “Everyone? We’ve never wrestled.”
Toni: “That’s because I haven’t had the opportunity, have I?”
Taya: “How about this? I’ll give you an opportunity at Battle of the Belts, for the AEW Women’s World championship. Unless you’re worried?”
Toni: “Fine! Calgary, Battle of the Belts. You and me. I’m going to humiliate you! How does that sound?”

Konosuke Takeshita (with Don Callis) vs. Mentallo!
The bell rang but Callis stepped into the ring with a microphone.
Callis: “Whoa, whoa, whoa, hang on. I just want to add a little bit of information tonight. This young abled body man, this young wrestler is not just any wrestler. He’s here because he’s the childhood friend of Kenny Omega. In fact, he was Kenny Omega’s first training partner. That’s not his fault. He’s here because Kenny Omega has a fundamental weakness which is a need to be surrounded by his idiot friends.”
Callis ordered Takeshita to attack Mentallo. Takeshita went right after his opponent after Callis yelled “kill” in Japanese.
Takeshita wiped out Mentallo with a big lariat. Takeshita grounded and pounded Mentallo. Mentallo used a German suplex for a near fall on Takeshita.
Takeshita hit a delayed vertical suplex off the ropes. Takeshita dropped Mentallo with a package piledriver. Takeshita followed up with a senton off the top rope and pinned Mentallo!
“Takeshita building up momentum for Blood & Guts this Wednesday,” said Excalibur.
Renee Paquette was backstage with The Dark Order—Alex Reynolds, John Silver, & Evil Uno!
Silver: “I’m sick of everybody leaving us, and Hangman leaving us pissed us off the most. We made him World Champion and he just abandoned us. Renee, would a real friend just abandon you, and you’d be cool with it?”
Reynolds: “That’s exactly our point. While Hangman’s career was flourishing because of us, we became soft. Last Friday was the Dark Order’s resurrection.”
Evil Uno: “Alex is right. We will no longer waste any time on fake friends. It’s time for us to rebuild. So, are you Dark Order, or are you not?”
Main Event Time!
