Newly crowned AEW World Champion Jon Moxley makes his entrance.
He gets on the mic and talks about the title and how it’s beautiful for what it and AEW represent— professional wrestling, the sport that he loves and has dedicated his life to. The title, he says, never belonged to Chris Jericho, and it doesn’t belong to him, it belongs to us. He talks about how AEW is something different and brought pro wrestling back, so he’ll defend the title with his life.
He’ll crawl through any hell, climb any mountain, and there isn’t a man in this industry that can pry the title out of his cold, dead hands. But hey, if you wanna try, step up and you can get knocked out, choked out, dropped on your head, it’s all the same to him. He ain’t no dummy, he knows it ain’t over between him and the Inner Circle. They tried to take his eye and end his career, and he knows this promo is like acid burning in Jericho’s mouth.
He knows he’s got an army coming after him, so he’s got a message for the whole Inner Circle— “I dare you.”
Enter Chris Jericho and the Inner Circle.
Y2J gets on the mic and starts off by saying he doesn’t need a belt to be Le Champion, which gets a “Yes you do!” chant from the crowd. He calls them idiots who can’t chant in unison and tells them to shut their ass and let him say what he has to say. He talks about Mox’s proclamation, his MO is reckless abandon, more guts than brains, and it all paid off because the Moxley era begins tonight.
He polls the crowd on how they feel about that and gets a positive response, to which he says he thinks it sucks ass. The crowd then chants “You suck ass!” back at him. He says that Mox’s win was based on a lie and he’s a cheater and a liar. He spent the better part of three months training to face a man with one eye, and the fact that he could see out of both isn’t an action worthy of a champion.
That makes Jon a snake oil salesman, a pharisee, and a cheater, and as a result, all of us are liars too. And since he won the title so unfairly, he’s caused a big problem, because the Inner Circle have gone from good-natured, very good looking guys, into a damn hit squad. (Dan Maff and Monsta Mack?!) So it’s official, the Inner Circle are putting the entire AEW roster— the crowd busts out into “Bullshit!” chants— is on notice.
He doesn’t care if your a Librarian or Michael Nakazawa or Jon Moxley, they’re going to tear everybody apart and hurt some people, and they’re gonna start with Mox. After tonight’s tag team main event— he hugs Sammy Guevara while running it down— he promises Mox won’t leave this pigsty on his own two feet. And if he walks out of here on his own tonight, Y2J will take a thirty day leave of absence.
Or hell, sixty days! As a matter of fact, don’t forget, he’s always got a plan, and Mox isn’t as smart as he thinks he is. Moxley says nobody said he’s a genius, and he didn’t graduate high school, but tonight he’s gonna do exactly what he did on Saturday, except he’s gonna send his ass packing for sixty days and make him look like a stupid son of a bitch.

Swole takes Leva’s book and throws it into the crowd, Leva with a Lungblower, Swole with a Slingshot Ace Crusher, German Suplex then finishes Leva with Dirty Dancing for the win
WINNER: BIG SWOLE
Cody gets on the mic.
He says he doesn’t know if he wants to broach the subject of how it feels personally to lose to MJF, but he’ll talk about it from a professional perspective. As a wrestler you work your whole life to earn a spot on a pay-per-view card, and that’s guaranteed money. And if you win, you get a bonus, so the professional became personal became professional again, and the only way he’d be comfortable with the loss at all is if Max comes out here right now, looks him in the eye, and tells him he won fair and square.
Enter… JAKE “THE SNAKE” ROBERTS?!
He comes down and shakes Cody’s hand before getting on the mic himself.
He hates to spoil the party, but damn man, he got tired of listening to Rhodes cry and bitch. He never cried over one match in his career and he’s gonna let that little punk son of a bitch get him to crying?! Don’t you understand you got your ass kicked? He handed it right to you! But that’s not why Snake the Jake is here. Oh no, hail mighty Caesar, he’s not here to praise him, he’s here to slay him.
The only reason he’s here is he has a client… the dark side will be coming to AEW, and once its roots have taken hold, it’ll be like a phoenix rising to the ashes, soaring to the sun. It’s been 20 years for him to get clean and get right, and by god he’s earned it, and if you think for one minute he’s gonna be a nice boy and play it right, you’ve got another thing coming.
For years he had the snake in the bag, and once it got in your head, he spanked your ass, and that’s what happens, and he’ll be on the outside of the ring when his client fights Cody, and he can bring Arn Anderson to ringside because he’ll whip his ass. Caesar, oh Caesar, what a snake wants, a snake takes, and he’s not in AEW to take the whole pie, he’s just here for Cody’s share.
A wise man once told him never to turn your back on somebody you respect or are afraid of… and he turns his back on Cody and leaves.
CHUCK TAYLOR W/TRENT? & ORANGE CASSIDY VS PAC:
PAC gets in both Orange & Trent?’s faces, but Chuck takes him down, Pop-Up Sit-Out Powerbomb for a 2 count, Taylor sends PAC to the floor with a Lariat then follows with a Pescado, back in the ring with a Falcon Arrow for a 2 count, PAC with a Slingshot Ace Crusher, PAC charges, Taylor catches him in a Gory Special and converts into The Awful Waffle, but he can’t get a cover right away & only gets a near fall, up top, PAC avoids the Moonsault and locks in The Brutalizer & Chuck submits
PAC gets in Trent?’s face, but Orange is there, Lucha Bros run in with a Double Whammy, Fenix with a Fireman Carry into a Roundhouse Kick
PAC gets on the mic and calls the crowd scumbags.
They’re Death Triangle, or Triangulo de la Muerte, and no one is safe & tells AEW that they did this to themself
Bros put the exclamation mark on it with Zero Fear on Orange
Shawn Spears and Tully Blanchard get a promo package where Spears talks about giving one person an opportunity of a lifetime to be his partner. There’s a lot of wrestlers in the world, and they’re running an open search to find the right partner

WINNER: JAKE HAGER
Dustin Rhodes immediately jumps in the ring and beats on Hager but PnP even the odds with That Damn Numbers Game…
CODY MAKES THE SAVE IN HIS SUIT FROM EARLIER! Snap Powerslam, slugging it out with Hager but Ortiz blasts him in the back with a chair and the Inner Circle turn the tide! MATT JACKSON IS HERE! SUPERKICKS! He squares up with Jake and starts wailing on him with punches! Jackson off the ropes… CAUGHT BY THE GUTWRENCH POWERSLAM!
”Hangman” Adam Page strolls down to the ring, beer in hand. He takes his sweet time and sets his beer on the ringpost before clearing house! Cowboy shit indeed! Hager dumps him to the apron, but he lands on his feet, Hangman slingshots in… BUCK SHOT LARIAT! Matt asks Page if they’re cool, Hangman flips him off then takes his beer and leaves
Commentary hypes up next week’s show, featuring Cody vs Ortiz, Death Triangle in action, an announcement of the rules for The Blood & Guts Match, and Jurassic Express vs. MJF & Butcher and the Blade.
Speaking of MJF, he gets a pretaped promo about how he went from protege to prodigy when he beat Cody Rhodes clean in the middle of the ring and proved that he’s the final chapter of his epic little odyssey. He can assure us, he’s got a whole lot of ink for his legacy, and that will read as MJF, the greatest world champion in the history of pro wrestling.
No need to change the channel or fix the audio, we heard him right, and he doesn’t care if it’s Jon Moxley or Timbuktu from South Peru, he’s gonna become #1 contender and no matter who gets in his way, he’s gonna remain undefeated, because he’s better than us and… gosh it’s hot in here. He asks Wardlow to take his jacket off, revealing that he’s wearing an old-school “I pinned Cody” t-shirt.
It’s obnoxious and regrettable and kinda distracting, he says… kinda like a neck tattoo
THE INNER CIRCLE VS JON MOXLEY & DARBY ALLIN:
Mox is attacked while he’s making his entrance by 3 masked men that ends up being Jake Hager and Proud n Powerful they drive him inoto a wall and choke Mox outside as Hager slams down a plastic trash can lid on him, Mox drives Hager back into the wall, but PnP have floored Mox, Hager with the knee to the nuts then Ortiz dumps the contents of the trash can on Mox, he won’t stay down, but Hager locks in the Kata-Gatame to choke out Mox
