Promo from Jon Moxley.
He says he has a rule— leave him alone, he’ll leave you alone, and if you don’t, he won’t. He castigates Brian Cage for beating up Darby Allin and calls Ricky Starks a punk bitch and says he wants to see how he acts when the odds are even. He doesn’t always start fights, but he always finishes them.

Enter Chris Jericho, flanked by the other members of the Inner Circle.
He says they’re furious about what’s been happening with them the last few weeks and they’re gonna draw some lines in the sand. Sammy Guevara calls Matt Hardy out and calls him a son of a bitch, or in Spanish, a son of el bitch. Jericho says on August 12 there’ll be a rematch of one of the greatest matches in AEW history, him vs. Orange Cassidy.
When he beats Orange again, he’s gonna make him give him $7000 for ruining his jacket with that demon orange juice. And on top of that, next week, he’s challenging Cassidy to a debate with a special guest moderator that will blow peoples’ minds. He asks Santana if he still smells like orange juice, and he gives him a sniff and says he smells like cat piss.
We go to a board room where FTR have invited Arn Anderson to take a look at their contract and make sure they’re taken care of as regards a tag team of their caliber. He gives it the okay and they double check that they’ve got the tag team appreciation night they wanted on August 12, they get it and they sign.

MJF cuts a promo from a podium in the ring.
He says he’s here to force feed us with knowledge, and when a lady with a clipboard tells him to just read the text he tells her to smile, like a real creepo. He gives us some hashtags to use and says it’s time for a change in leadership around here. At the beginning of this company called for a paradigm shift, and a guy who comes from the place of the titans isn’t new, that’s old hat, brother.
This revolution has turned into a dictatorship, and that’s why Jon Moxley is not his champion. He says it’s high time as a society to have a conversation about the negative effects of the Moxley reign. Where’s the wrestling? All he sees is a bunch of great wrestlers doing gymnastics to attempt to make the viewer at home think they’re good at their job.
But we’ve been brainwashed into thinking that’s what good pro wrestling is, and that’s why a world champion is supposed to lead by example. He runs Mox for cosplaying Stone Cold and says he’s undefeated as the first and last MJF, but he’s not a media analyst. Everybody wants to talk about ratings, and that’s why they treat dictator Jon so well.
Where would the numbers lie without him, right? Wrong. On average, minute-for-minute, Friedman claims he draws better numbers than Mox. AEW is meant to be the land of opportunity and Moxley has squandered that. The earth is dying and so are our morals, and his talent outweighs your tenure. He’s the guy that’s gonna be leading this company for the next twenty-five years, so do the math.
He promises us he won’t stop until he transforms this brand into the pinnacle of professional wrestling. He’s challenging Mox to a title match at All Out!
Jon Moxley makes his entrance and Taz and his boys appear on the stage to taunt him about Allin not showing up. He puts Cage’s physique over and gives the mic to Starks, who puts himself over as young and different and hungry before mocking Moxley for dressing like Pig Pen and wrestling like a crash test dummy
DARBY ALLIN & JON MOXLEY VS TEAM TAZ:
