MJF interrupts Jericho to start off the show and he says he’s looking forward to being on commentary so he can see first hand what he’s capable of. Jericho notes the killer instinct of Hager and Santana and thinks MJF is a bit “soft.” MJF takes exception and looks to prove him wrong.

MJF is out and Wardlow drags Max over to his corner to tag himself in. F-10 to Ortiz. Sammy frog splashes down for the save.
Sammy begins his offense on his men, but suddenly Serpentico from ringside tosses a chair at Sammy’s mush. It’s not Serpentico, but Matt Hardy. This allows Max to lock in The Salt Of The Earth on Ortiz to get the tap-out finish.
WINNERS: MJF & Wardlow
Post-match a fired up Max charges at Jericho and begins to hammer away at the Demo God. He gets pulled off and Jericho has a big grin on his face.
Earlier on, Tony Schiavone is at Kenny Omega’s home for an interview and compliments the cute pooch he owns. Well it’s not Kenny’s home and it’s not Kenny’s dog which he gently shoves along. Omega said he could easily have went to Tony Khan and gotten a title shot, but he decided to earn it. He thought he may have gotten Wardlow in the finals, but low and behold it’s Adam Page. He asks the fans who he thinks will take it at Full Gear.

Earlier in the day, JR is with Hangman who has a drink in his hand (Page not JR). He asks him about his Eliminator Tournament. Page said he had a lot of time to prepare and he’s gonna whip Kenny’s ass. JR asks how his former partnership will play into that strategy. Page says he’s going to incorporate that into his gameplan. JR calls him out on his drinking and he thinks that Page is nervous. Page admits that he is, and thinks about the last shot he had at the AEW Title, all he’ll have is that whiskey. JR tells him to enjoy it in moderation.
There’s a video package promoting The Young Bucks vs. FTR at Full Gear and it has an array of AEW personalities hyping the big bout.
Taz saunters out with Brian Cage and Ricky Starks. He reminds Will Hobbs the clock is ticking. THat’s not why he’s out here. For three hours, Taz sat outside Tony Khan’s office and an assistant came out to tell him that TK was too wrapped up. He now has a live mic and wants to remind Khan of the AEW Ranking system. Who’s better than Cage? Absolutely no one. How about Ricky Starks? He’s got 10 wins out of his last 11 and he’s not even ranked! Ricky gets on the mic and wants to make sense that either him or Cage not having a match at Full Gear. He calls out Cody and Darby for being entitled and says Cody’s mantra of “Do The Work,” but right now Team Taz is getting worked. Rest assured, they’ll make their presence known at Full Gear.

Moxley & Kingston Face Off
Tony Schiavone introduces Eddie Kingston first and then he does the same for Mox. Eddie demands Tony to get out of the ring. He says on Saturday he’s taking that title from Mox and is going to give it to his mother before telling her that this is the reason she doesn’t have a grandson and daughter-in-law. He had to sell out and now he’s gonna take that belt.
Moxley said how happy he was for Eddie and how he made a promise to Eddie’s mother that he’d look out for him and his wild antics. He asks Eddie what’s wrong with him because he’s acting weak by talking so much. Mox thinks Eddie’s scared at the shot. What’s the worst part about it all is Eddie made a promise to his mother that he couldn’t keep. Very intense stare-down and Mox closes it out by saying Kingston will say “I quit.”
We see PAC in a house. The funny thing about isolation is that you have no one to play with. He’s been getting stronger, faster and more obsessed.
