WINNERS: THE YOUNG BUCKS
MJF comes out of his dressing room and compliments his new gum guy after getting a piece.
Nina pipes up to take credit for it but he tells her to stay quiet until spoken to and his whole entourage gets moving down the hallway.
We’re told we’re going to get wrestlers sharing their favorite tag teams throughout the night and we start with the tag champs. Kenny Omega names his favorite tag team as the Young Bucks, and Hangman Page says he was going to say he and Omega are his favorite team.
MJF and his entourage are in the ring with a red carpet rolled out and a podium set up.
He implores us to use some hashtags and berates Nina for not smiling enough before passing the floor to her to show us his polling numbers, wherein he wins 500% of the vote and Jon Moxley wins a mere -1000%. But it’s not about numbers, there’s more important things on the docket and he cares about our well being.
Dictator Jon has made it abundantly clear he doesn’t care about us, because he’s not here, but Max says he’ll always be here for us. He says Mox is in uncharted territory, he’s not used to dealing with someone more talented than him or who won’t happily look up at the lights for him. But he wants to make him feel comfortable enough to show up at his job, so he has some of his boys move the podium so he can lie down in the middle of the ring.
He asks if Moxley is in his comfort zone yet and says he didn’t start this campaign because of him, but just because this great company deserves quality leadership, and Jon might be a great pro wrestler, but he’s no leader. He’s just a rabid dog chasing cars and he wouldn’t know what do with one if he caught it, but the problem is he caught the best car on earth, the AEW title.
But if he wants to prove Max wrong, maybe it’s time to fork the keys over, and why wait until All Out? Everyone watching knows they deserve better.
Jon Moxley’s music plays and MJF loses his mind ordering his entourage to cover the vomitoria to keep him away form the ring.
Mox is smarter than that, and comes down the entrance tunnel and gets in the ring… NORTHERN LARIAT! Raining punches down, smashing him into the podium… PARADIGM SHIFT MK II! Moxley shoves the podium over and leaves, message sent.
At Gorilla, Jon gets on the mic and says this doesn’t leave them even, far from it. That won’t be until he teaches him a painful lesson in humility at All Out.
Wardlow checks on MJF, who’s clutching his neck and crying.
Matt Hardy is interviewed backstage.
He won’t be medically cleared for ten days, but he’s alive, and he’s been seeing red since last Wednesday. He wants to make Sammy Guevara bleed, and on next week’s delayed episode of Dynamite, he’s gonna be there to kick Sammy’s ass, and he’s gonna stick around tonight and beat his ass if he can. Matt sees some dude walking and starts smashing him into a garage door, thinking he’s Sammy, but it’s actually referee Mike Posey!

Butcher and the Blade pick the Road Warriors as their favorite team ever.
FTR, the Young Bucks, the Rock & Roll Express, and the Brainbusters are in the ring for Tag Team Appreciation Night. The Bucks talk up the Rock & Rolls as the original Young Bucks who went on to inspire the Rockers and the Hardyz before them.
They give the mic to the Rock & Rolls and FTR get on their mic next. They admit to being marks for Arn and Tully, and say it’s because of them that they get to make a living in the sport of pro wrestling. Cash talks about how he loves his wife and daughter and thanks the vets in the ring for letting him give them the life he never had.
Ricky Morton gets on the mic and talks about how he watches AEW every week and he hasn’t seen so much chemisty as FTR have since Tully and Arn, but then you come to the Young Bucks. For the last 15 years they’ve dominated tag team wrestling just the way he and Robert did.
Arn Anderson gets on the mic and says he knows Tully is just getting caught up so he’s gonna help him. He doesn’t blow smoke because it leaves a bad taste in his mouth, but he will say the Bucks have taken tag team wrestling to a new level. He turns to address Ricky and Robert and says they’re still kicking ass and they gotta be the tag team of the century, and he’ll say it, FTR are the best team in the world.
Tully Blanchard takes the mic and tells Ricky he doesn’t want to start anything he can’t finish, and he’s got news for all of ‘em— the thing that makes you a great tag team is having the belt around your waist, and as of tonight, neither the Bucks nor FTR are the tag champs. He turns to Arn and says they’ve had a thing since Labor Day last year, and he doesn’t understand the Nightmare Family logo on Anderson’s vest.
Shawn Spears comes down to ringside as Arn says he can see what’s happening here, and Ricky pops Tully in the mouth before he can keep talking! We get a short, sharp brawl and Dax Harwood’s bad knee goes out on him! Cash Wheeler checks on him while the Bucks back Shawn and Tully off… IT WAS A RUSE! WHEELER CLOBBERS ROBERT WITH THE BRACE AND FTR HIT THE MIND BREAKER ON RICKY!
FTR bail out of the ring and hug as the tag champs come down to check on Ricky Morton.
Referee Mike Chioda is interviewed backstage and Chris Jericho rolls up.
He says they’ve been around the world together and he wants Chioda to referee his match tonight, and to do the right thing. Mike says he’ll call it right down the middle, and Jericho says yes, when the time is right and he gives him a signal, he should call it right down the middle and he might have a job then.

We go in a locker room somewhere, where Lance Archer is beating dudes up while Jake “the Snake” Roberts cuts a promo talking about owning people and instilling fear.
