PAC vs. Trent
Trent was accompanied by Chuck Taylor and Orange Cassidy. PAC and Trent exchange some chain wrestling to start things off and then PAC slides out to the floor and gets in Cassidy’s face. Back in the ring, Trent leapfrogs a charging PAC and then lays him out with a back elbow. Trent then hits a Hanging Northern Lights Suplex off the ropes for a nearfall.
PAC rolls back out to the floor and when Trent follows him, PAC catches Trent with a knee and then slams him into the guardrail. PAC slams Trent into the guardrail again and starts taunting the crowd as a “PAC you suck” chant breaks out.
PAC keeps rolling back into the ring to break the 10-count and then goes back to slamming Trent into the guardrail. PAC grabs Trent by the hair and slams him onto the ramp. PAC finally rolls back into the ring and tells the referee to count, but then PAC goes to the air with a Fosbury Flop instead.
PAC rolls Trent back in the ring and then dives off the top with a big Missile Dropkick for a nearfall. PAC grounds Trent with a side headlock and then slams him into the turnbuckles followed by hitting a beautiful Bridging German Suplex for another nearfall.
PAC goes back to a chinlock as the fans continue to boo him. PAC attempts to whip Trent into the corner but he reverses it and then charges at PAC only to get dumped over the top again. PAC sets up for another dive but this time Orange Cassidy gets in the ring and gets in his face.
As Chucky distracts the referee, Cassidy starts doing his lazy kicks until PAC destroys him with a Pump Kick. Trent levels PAC with a series of Lariats followed by a Half-and-Half Suplex. PAC rolls to the floor and Trent follows him with a Somersault Plancha over the top rope!
Trent gives PAC a taste of his own medicine as he tosses him into the guardrail repeatedly and a “this is awesome” chant breaks out. Trent tries to whip PAC into the guardrail again but PAC reverses it only for Trent to explode off the railing with a Spear!
Back in the ring, Trent hits a Flying Knee to the back of the head for a nearfall. Trent hits another big Lariat and then connects with a Swinging DDT out of the corner for a CLOSE nearfall! PAC rolls back out to the floor to get away from Trent and as Trent follows him out, PAC delivers a desperation Brainbuster on the floor!
The referee begins to administer a 10-count on both men but PAC gets back to his feet and rolls Trent back in. PAC climbs up top and hits the Black Arrow! 1…2… and the referee stops for some reason. PAC gets pissed and locks in the Brutalizer for the KO win.
Winner: PAC via KO (Brutalizer)
After the match, PAC gets on the microphone and says he heard what Page said last week. PAC says at “Full Gear” he will make an example out of Page…AGAIN.
Tony Schiavone welcomes Cody Rhodes out to the ring. Schiavone points out that Charlotte is where Cody was literally born and then turns his attention to the announcement that Cody was going to make a few weeks ago when The Inner Circle interrupted him.
Rhodes says that the arrival of The Inner Circle has been blunt and strategic. “They have taken a scalpel to The Elite,” Cody said. Cody says that’s fine because The Elite have been looking for the type of competition that can hang with them.
Rhodes says he’s about to make an important announcement in regards to his career but then he starts rattling off some legendary names in wrestling – like his father – and he says that those names have all been controversial because they were not only legendary wrestlers but were executives, as well.
“When I hear the same criticism attached to my name for being in a title match and also being management, I can’t not hear it,” Cody continued. “With that said, I am announcing that if I do not defeat Chris Jericho at ‘Full Gear’ I will never challenge for the AEW World Championship again.”
Cody says that Jericho has called him an “entitled millennial bitch” but Cody points out how Jericho was raised by a professional hockey player and calls him hypocritical for his criticisms of Cody being “entitled.”
“You call me entitled but I call you a carnie succubus,” Cody said. “This isn’t about the dead, it’s about the living. IT’S ABOUT MY MOTHER, IT’S ABOUT MY SISTER, IT’S ABOUT MY WIFE. IT’S ABOUT THE 14 GODDAMN YEARS IT TOOK ME TO GO FROM UNDESIREABLE TO UNDENIABLE! At Full Gear I beat you and become the World Champion as you fall back into your Inner Circle.”
Cody teases that The Inner Circle and the entire Elite will battle at some point and it will be “a match beyond.”

It’s pretty much a Chris Jericho propaganda video with the members of The Inner Circle singing his praise. We even get a Virgil appearance! “I’ve known Chris Jericho since he was 12 years old,” Virgil says.

Clips of Moxley’s pre-WWE career are shown alongside Moxley’s promo from last week. Omega says he owes a “thank you” to Moxley because his best work has always been when he has to sacrifice something and he will have to sacrifice at Full Gear. Moxley says that he doesn’t try to find an opponent to get the best out of him, he looks for someone to get the WORST out of him. “I’m glad we’re going to that dark place, Jon. I can’t wait to see you there,” Omega says.
