AEW World Championship Eliminator Match!
AEW World Champion Jon Moxley vs. “Daddy Magic” Matt Menard (with “Cool Hand” Angelo Parker)!
Parker was on the ropes, barking at the champ. Moxley took his frustration out on Daddy Magic, throwing him out of the ring and then whipping Menard into the guardrail.
Mox charged at Menard in the ring but Menard countered with forearms. Moxley countered a piledriver but Parker wiped out Mox outside the ring as the ref was distracted by Menard.
Menard hoisted up Mox and crotched him on the steel ring post! Back in the ring, Mox and Matt slugged it out. Moxley walloped Matt with the King Kong Lariat! Moxley suplexed Menard off the top turnbuckle for a near fall. Mox maintained control of Menard’s ankle but Menard kicked his way out of it.
Moxley stomped on Menard’s head. Parker jumped in the ring but Moxley blasted him with a cutter. As Mox was distracted, Menard planted Mox with a DDT. Moxley fired back, locking Menard in a rear naked sleeper and forcing the tap!
Stokely Hathaway came out with Lee Moriarty after the match. Hathaway invited Mox to go one-on-one with Moriarty next week on DYNAMITE.
Moxley: “You are a hell of a talented guy. The Blackpool Combat Club really likes you. But you’re hanging out with the wrong crowd. If you want a match with Jon Moxley, I’ll see your ass in Baltimore!”
“Limitless” Keith Lee vs. Serpentico!
Serpentico charged at Lee but Lee hoisted him up with a powerbomb and then pinned him!
“A massive powerbomb, just cratering Serpentico,” said Excalibur.
After the match Tony Schiavone tried to interview Keith Lee but AEW World Tag champs The Acclaimed interrupted!
Bowens: “Max and I were with Billy all morning and then he went MIA. Where is he?!”
Schiavone: “Billy had a family emergency and had to leave early today.”
Swerve Strickland appeared on the screen. Swerve had Billy tied up to a chair!
Swerve had a pair of pliers and used them on Billy’s fingers!
The Acclaimed ran to the back while Keith Lee looked on in disbelief.
“I’m not sure Keith Lee was even aware of this,” said Jim Ross.
Tay Melo (with Sammy Guevara) vs. Madison Rayne!
Tay booted Madison in the midsection. Tay tripped Madison with a Judo roll.
Tay slapped Madison with a big right hand. Madison tripped up Tay, as turnabout is fair play. Melo grabbed Madison and then dropped her across the top turnbuckle with a modified backbreaker. Madison rallied back with a DDT to Tay! Madison followed up with a neck breaker and a near fall on Tay!
Madison perched herself on the top turnbuckle on brought down Tay with a cutter! Tay attempted a piledriver but Madison escaped. Madison connected with a sliding lariat. Tay shoved Madison into the corner and began hammering her with chops.
Tay nailed Madison with a pump knee strike. She finished off Madison with the Tay-KO and scored the victory via pin.
“She earned this one because it was a great, great match,” said Schiavone.
Lexy Nair was backstage with Ethan Page!
Page: “We didn’t decide as a group to change. MJF decided to change his plans. He decided all of a sudden he could do everything the right way. The Firm made MJF #1 contender. But you decided to change your plans and we decided to stop doing favors for you. Enjoy the week off, Max, but don’t be too happy Moxley, because I’m entered in the FULL GEAR Eliminator Tournament!”
Main Event Time!
TNT Championship Match!
Wardlow (c.) vs. The Kingdom’s Matt Taven (with Maria Kanellis & Mike Bennett)!
Taven chopped at Wardlow and followed up with a dropkick. Wardlow barely budged and then he hit Taven with a headbutt and a hip toss.
Wardlow rammed his shoulder into Taven’s midsection and then whipped him over the ropes. Mike Bennett ambushed Wardlow but Wardlow shrugged it off. Taven flew through the air, over the top rope and splashed down onto Wardlow with a flying body press. Bennett whipped Wardlow into the steel ring steps!
Taven hit a frog splash down onto Wardlow’s tweaked knee. Taven smashed Wardlow with a running knee to the face. Wardlow grabbed Taven and sent him for a ride with the F-10. Wardlow wrecked Taven with a lariat and then a belly-to-belly suplex!
Wardlow spiked Taven with a spinebuster. Maria jumped onto the apron to distract Wardlow. Wardlow delivered the goods, though, and powerbombed Taven!
“The fans want to see it again,” said Schiavone.
Wardlow powerbombed Taven again, and then again. After the fourth powerbomb, Wardlow pinned Taven!
Mike Bennett chop blocked Wardlow from behind!
ROH TV Champion Samoa Joe sprinted to the ring and evened up the odds! Samoa Joe cleaned the ring of the Kingdom!
Powerhouse Hobbs’ music hit! Hobbs walked down to the ring!
“Who does Hobbs have in his sights?” asked Excalibur.
The Embassy jumped into the ring and ambushed Wardlow and Samoa Joe! Powerhouse Hobbs helped the Embassy, planting Wardlow with a spinebuster. Powerhouse Hobbs grabbed Wardlow’s title belt and held it up while Brian Cage hoisted up Samoa Joe’s championship!
