In-Ring: Jon Moxley, Hangman Page
WILD THING! Mox makes his way through the crowd as per usual and swaggers his way to the ring, stopping to have a sip of water. He has a mic and the crowd chants “Moxley, Moxley”. “I grew up about 90 miles from here, I used to wrestle here all the time. This has been a crazy ass ride you never know what’s around the corner. There are three certainties, death, taxes, and Jon Moxley. There is nobody that can outwork me, out wrestle me, out bleed me, or out swing me. Today, nothing’s changed since day one in AEW. I am the the top of the food chain, I do and say what I want. This ring belongs to me and you bet your ass there is no man in this building or 100 miles that has the balls to look me in the eyes and tell me different.”
HANGMAN PAGE’S MUSIC HITS!!!!! The Cowboy is back!!! He struts down to the ring as they say he hasn’t been cleared yet. He goes nose to nose immediately with Mox and Mox says “You sure you wanna do this after last time? I’m sorry, do you not remember?” Hangman slugs him! They brawl around ringside as security and referees try to break them up. Mox breaks through and leaps at Hangman as they’re tussling and security eventually drags them away. Moxley talks trash and Page comes back and starts swinging again! There’s at least a dozen people trying to help out and Mox taunts him on the apron. Mox breaks free and trips and falls off the stage but gets back up and they still try and brawl. They finally get them through the tunnels.

Bryan powders out to catch his breath and slowly gets back in.

He starts elbowing Dax on the top rope as the crowd counts along and then hits a back body drop but Dax rolls through and Bryan rolls through that! 1…2..NO! Both men down as the referee starts counting as Dax headbutts Bryan and Bryan reciprocates. They just headbutt each other on their knees and then get up and Bryan absorbs two lariats and Dax absorbs his own!
They start clotheslining each other as both men are worn down but Dax KILLS Bryan and Bryan jumps up and hits one too! Both men collapse as the crowd goes nuts. Dax catches Bryan’s kick and Danielson reverses a slingshot powerbomb into a rollup for two! He hits a sick kick to the head and Dax kicks out at two again! Bryan hits the Yes Kicks on Dax and Bryan flips out of a German. Dax catches the flying knee and hits a slingshot bomb! 1…2..NO!

In-Ring: MJF, William Regal
William Regal is seen walking down to the ring conveniently as Moxley has been removed from the building. He has a mic as the crowd boos; he says “Ladies and Gentlemen, your new AEW World Champion, Maxwell Jacob Friedman.”
MJF’s music hits as the new AEW World Champion struts down to the ring with a mic and gets into the ring and hugs Regal. “I know you people aren’t bright but when the best wrestler is holding a mic, you keep your hillbilly mouths shut. I will tell you how” As MJF stops and the crowd chants “STFU” Regal sent me an email “Maxwell, I watched on as the Firm attacked you. It’s clear you’re weak, but I see potential for you to be the greatest villain of our time. You have much to learn, and I will teach you but this time instead of grabbing the Diamond ring, grab the brass one. Sincerely, Regal.” “We met many times, and this man is a genius. I was apt to listen when he said use the knucks because he wanted me to leave Moxley with a lesson so he would never forget the day he was outsmarted by MJF.”
He talks about the Firm and says “Eh, I kinda respect the Firm. They saw weakness and attacked, I would have done the same. Even if I did harbor resentment, do I seem like the kind of person to chase? Effort is for poor people and I am above that; and I am above this belt.” “When I became champ I made a promise to make change, out with the old in with the new. When I see the title I wanna gag; because it desperately needs an upgrade. It’s tacky, classless and reminds me of the other men who held it.” He mocks them but says none are on his level.
He takes the title off and chucks it away. Regal removes a tarp from a stand and MJF has a Burberry patterned leather belt. It looks gaudy for sure; MJF calls it new and improved. The Triple B! “The most important title in this entire sport because I am the man holding it. No one deserves to be recognized as world champion except for me. No overhyped trash, fake tough guys” and calls Ricky a fake star and says Danielson is a fake wrestler. “In comparison, Danielson couldn’t wrestle his way out of a bag against me.” MJF mocks the crowd again and says here’s a message “As long as I am here, you’ll never know what it’s like on top. I am champion for a long time, until the bidding war of 2024 and get the biggest contract in history. I’ll make more in a day than you will in a lifetime. I pray the right Khan foots the bill and I ain’t talking Tony, but St. Nick and Trips.” He says he doesn’t even know if anyone will win the bid because he doesn’t want to look at the fans, but maybe Hollywood wins.
He says thanks for the support but your happiness will turn to resentment because you’re fickle. You’ll complain, you’ll bitch. “Great, guess who will turn in every week? You.” Triple B will be defended rarely and I will wrestle rarely because I am a special attraction; in order to see me defend it you’ll have to buy a PPV in hopes to see me lose. But they won’t.” He compares his reign and says it’ll be bigger than Jarrett, Bruno and everyone. “My reign of terror has just begun.” MJF goes to hand Regal the Brass Knucks and says “They may boo you but they respect you.” He slugs Regal with the Knucks! Regal is out cold!
MJF stands over Regal who has had several neck injuries. He says “You made a deal with the devil. Let me leave you with words like you did. The game has changed, MJF hires top talent and world class athletes. When you’re ready, send me your stuff. Yours truly, Maxwell Jacob Friedman.” MJF gets out and walks off through the crowd. Danielson comes out with the doctor to check on him as they wave down EMT’s and a stretcher. Regal hasn’t moved since. Danielson is trying to talk to him as commentary is stunned; Bryan screams to go faster as Tazz is even shaken. They get a neck brace on Regal and get him on a gurney as we go to commercial.
Segment: William Regal, Bryan Danielson
Back from commercial we see a replay of what happened with MJF and Regal as Regal is shown being loaded into an ambulance as Bryan looks on very concerned. Bryan heads to the hospital with him as they end up leaving and Tony calls it a “Black eye on AEW.”
Ricky Starks vs. Ari Daivari
Ricky Starks music hits as he makes his way out to a big pop and he’s still taped up from the multiple attacks in recent weeks.
The Firm come out with Matt Hardy who yells Delete and Stokely and Page send him to the back and they mock him. Page says “You’re going to help me win the whole damn thing. Calling my shot, after MJF whips your ass” Matt flips off Page and Page says “You’re going to watch and cry.”

In-Ring: Jade Cargill & The Baddies
Jade and the Baddies make their way to the ring with a mic. Jade is dressed in a gorgeous white outfit and the baddies are in pink and looking a bit irritated to be with Jade.
“We all know why you’re here. For me and my big ass celebration.” Jade says “I made the baddies, I say who stays and go’s. I took out the trash last week” She asks the baddies why they hung out with Kiera Hogan and she mocks them. “Standing next to me is a blessing, and if you two want to step up or step off. I am the brightest star backstage, nobody has my body, my face, my aura. I put asses in seats; I wrestle for bad bitches now cameraman do my job and get my baddies. I am nothing but real, I create careers.”
She mocks Bow Wow, and it cuts to a video of him on the big screen. Bow Wow congratulates her on winning, and says he has a lot of time on his hands and that he’s got a lot planned in the future so watch out.”
