Hook defeats Ethan Page via submission
In an opening match FTW Championship bout, it was HOOK who would retain his title in grand fashion. In a very fun match between two of All ELite Wrestling’s biggest and best superstars, HOOK was able to flip the momentum late in the match to come out on top. Toward the end of the contest, Page hit HOOK with a pump kick, and attempted to put the champ through a table with the Ego’s Edge.
However, HOOK flipped the pair over and locked in the Redrum, ending things and retaining his title. After the match was over, the fans began demanding HOOK use the table, so he T-Bone’d Page through it and walked off.
Match 2: The Acclaimed, Daddy Magic, and Cool Hand Ang defeat The Infantry, Bobby Orlando, and LSG via pinfall
In a rather quick match, The Acclaimed & co. handled business from the start. After the match, however, Jake Hager shocked everyone by hitting Daddy Ass with a spinebuster, before The Acclaimed got assaulted by the Jericho Appreciation Society.

Strickland had been promising a major announcement all week, and revealed that it would be the revelation that Mogul Affiliates had merged with another group, although he wouldn’t reveal who just yet.
Darby Allin defeats Lee Moriarty via pinfall
In a big match of the night, Allin walked out with a big win, delivering some big hits to Moriarty late in the match. As things came to an end, Big Bill attempted to interfere and cause a distraction for Lee. Moriarty tripped Allin off the top rope, and then hit a superplex, but Allin rolled out of the pin and tried to quick pin Lee to no avail. Things came to an end after Allin hit the Code Red on Moriarty, before hitting a suicide dive on Bill Bill to make sure nothing else would happen. He then hit the Coffin Drop on Lee for the win.
After the match, Strickland came out and offered Allin his hand on the ramp, but Darby wouldn’t shake it. Brian Cage then shocked the crowd by appearing and attacking Allin from behind, delivering a brutal assault and confirming that the Mogul Affiliates merger was with none other than The Embassy.
Julia Hart defeats Anna Jay via pinfall
In the final match of the night, Hart walked out with a win after hitting a late moonsault on her opponent. Although Jay was able to kick out and then lock in a Queen Slayer chokehold, Hart had enough strength to drag the pair to the ropes before rolling out of the ring, before hitting her with some black mist spit into Jay’s eyes while the referee wasn’t looking.
After getting back in the ring, Hart quickly rolled up Jay for the win.
