Jake “the Snake” Roberts comes up on the tron with a message for Cody.
He says Lance Archer is champing at the bit just to get in the ring with somebody from AEW. He talks about AEW giving the people what they want but his phone didn’t ring, and here he is the best mind in wrestling. They didn’t bring in Lance Archer because they’re afraid, and they’re right to be, because he’s still paying off the medical bills from Archer’s last training session.
He tells Cody to bring whoever he likes, but he needs to be sat down with something to sign for one meeting between Rhodes and Archer. That’s all they need, is one time, to get this done. It’s up to Cody, he says, and he finishes, of course, with “Trust me.”
Cody responds to Jake’s message by calling him bitter and jaded, but Lance Archer is great. He’s got no body of work here, but that means he can’t start with Cody here and now. He says Archer will debut next week.
A Darby Allin video package calling Kip Sabian out follows. He talks about how Superbad is just words and he’s met plenty of people that fit that description, but Sabian is nothing more than a sacrifice for the sins of the Inner Circle.

Chris Jericho gets his entrance and takes the camera from the camera man, who then proceeds to rock out to Judas.
He gets in the ring to talk about Matt Hardy’s debut last week. Hardy pledged his allegiance to the Elite, those arrogant sons of bitches. But he doesn’t think Matt really understands the choice he’s made, so he’s gonna give him a chance to make the right decision, the decision to join the Inner Circle.
He beckons Hardy down and Vanguard-1 flies into his airspace. Chris says he’s glad Vanguard showed up, because he’s got a couple things to tell him. He doesn’t like him, he thinks he’s arrogant, he’s a piece of shit. But even though he doesn’t like him, he respects him, and that’s why he’s asking him to join the Inner Circle.
Vanguard-1 flies away by way of an answer as Y2J yells at him.
Broken Matt Hardy appears in the balcony… AND TELEPORTS TO A LOWER LEVEL?! AND THEN AGAIN CLOSER AND CLOSER TO THE RING! He snaps his teeth at a stunned Jericho and makes his way to the ring. He tells the Maker of Pain that he knew he’d come.
Chris says of course, they booked this segment last week, and asks how he teleported, to which Matt simply says he’s magic. Jericho puts him over and says he just wants to explain some things about AEW. This is his show, it was organized and raised and put into the mainstream by him, so when you show up in AEW, he’s the one you want to ally with, not the arrogant sons of bitches in the Elite.
Hardy says he understands, and the reason he assisted the Elite last week is that he owes the Bucks of Youth a debt for resurrecting “Broken” Matt Hardy. And on top of that, he’s seen the tyranny of the Inner Circle, and this place for him represents freedom. It’s his Arcadia, and he can’t allow him or the Inner Circle to ruin this paradise that must be protected at all costs.
Chris says he resurrects careers— Jake Hager, Jon Moxley, Sammy Guevara, Santana, Ortiz… and he can make Matt. Everybody makes mistakes, second day on the job, he deserves a mulligan. So he’s gonna give him one more chance. Hardy says Y2J doesn’t understand what he’s looking at— he may recognize the vessel, but the pilot is new. He is Damascus, and Damascus is over 3000 years old, and when it comes to violence and brutality, he’s your guy.
Jericho says at 3000 years old he must be very wise, and when he looks at him and sees his amazing cloak and the sassy red streak in his hair, he sees the difference, but inside he’s still the same Matt Hardy he’s known for 25 years. Matt says he could say the same of the chameleon Jericho, an evil essence to the core, truly the hole of the ass.
Chris says that Hardy is always in someone’s shadow, whether his brother or now Jericho himself. Matt says he’s in no one’s shadow, and Chris offers him the choice one last time. Inner Circle or Elite? DELETE! Y2J asks again. DELETE! ELITE! DELETE! DELETE! DELETE!
Jericho tells him to stop, because no one is here to chant his stupid catchphrase. Hardy says to the contrary, the venue is full of essences, and talks about his theme song, Judas, saying he knew the real Judas, but he’s got a new song for Chris— He’ll fade away and classify himself as obsolete… OBSOLETE! Hardy then points out that Abraham Lincoln is in seat 15C, Martin Luther King over there, etc.
Chris says he can’t see them, and Matt says it’s because he doesn’t have faith, and he wants Jericho to take a long hard look at the entity that is going to delete him and the Inner Circle. Jericho says all he can see is the same old Matt Hardy, and maybe he should smack it out of him! Hardy fires a shot right back and Chris says he has magic powers too— abra cadabra, Matt Hardy gets his ass kicked…
SAMMY GUEVARA OUT OF NOWHERE TO BEAT HARDY DOWN! OMEGA AND RHODES MAKE THE SAVE FROM COMMENTARY, STEEL CHAIRS IN HAND! The Inner Circle beat a hasty retreat and nearly get burned by pyro as The Broken One calls for the flamethrowers to erupt again and again!
