The new AEW World Champion Jon Moxley opened the show with an in-ring promo. He thanked the fans and said he would defend the belt with his life. He was then interrupted by the Inner Circle as Jericho made excuses for losing the title. Jericho said the Inner Circle is putting AEW on watch and said he would leave AEW for 60 days if Moxley leaves this show under his own power.
SCU (Frankie Kazarian, Christopher Daniels & Scorpio Sky) and Colt Cabana defeated The Dark Order (Evil Uno, Stu Grayson, John Silver & Alex Reynolds) when Cabana hit Reynolds with the Chicago Skyline and pinned him with the Superman Pin.
After the match, Evil Uno got on the mic and screamed about how it wasn’t supposed to go this way. He also said The Exalted One would not be happy about this loss.
Big Swole defeated Leva Bates after hitting her with Dirty Dancing.
Britt Baker was on commentary during this match.
Cody Rhodes came to the ring to talk about his loss to MJF. He said the only way he could deal with it was if MJF came out and said to his face that he beat him cleanly. Instead of MJF, Jake Roberts came out to confront Cody. He said that he has a client coming to AEW who is bringing the dark side with him and Jake will be on the outside when his client faces Cody. Jake made fun of Arn Anderson and said he wasn’t going to be nice. He finished by saying that you shouldn’t turn your back on anyone you fear or respect. He then turned his back on Cody and walked out.
PAC defeated Chuck Taylor with the Brutalizer.
After the match, Orange Cassidy went to confront PAC, but he was attacked by the Lucha Brothers. Pentagon, Fenix, and PAC beat up the Best Friends crew. PAC then got on the microphone and said that the three of them would now be known as Death Triangle.
Jake Hager defeated QT Marshall with the triangle.
After the match, Hager, Santana & Ortiz beat down on Marshall and then Dustin Rhodes. This brought out Cody and then Matt Jackson who also fell victim to the numbers game. Finally, Adam Page (drinking a beer) came out and cleaned house on the Inner Circle. Matt Jackson went to shake his hand, but Page gave him the middle finger and walked out.
MJF did a backstage promo talking about how he has replaced Cody as head author of AEW and that he will be the best world champion in wrestling history, challenging Moxley. He then took off his jacket to reveal a “I Pinned Cody” shirt.
Chris Jericho and Sammy Guevara defeated Jon Moxley and Darby Allin after Jericho hit Darby with the Judas Effect on the outside.
Before the match, the Inner Circle of Jake Hager, Santana & Ortiz attacked Jon Moxley during his entrance and took him down to the concourse. They brawled for a bit before Moxley was choked out by Hager. This lead to Darby saying he would fight Sammy Guevara and Chris Jericho, two-on-one. Darby put up a hell of a fight, but he went for a dive to the outside late in the match and was caught with the Judas Effect.
In the post-match, Moxley escaped from the doctor’s care and hit the ring with a chair. He soon fell victim to the numbers game and ended up being triple-powerbombed off the stage through a table.
