8-Man Tag Team Match: AEW All-Atlantic Champion Orange Cassidy, The Acclaimed (Anthony Bowens and Max Caster) and Billy Gunn (w/ Danhausen) vs. Jay Lethal, Jeff Jarrett, Satnam Singh and Sonjay Dutt
– Bowens’ group won with a “Scissor Me, Timbers” on Dutt.
We see a video of Bryan Danielson talking about his now confirmed fight against MJF at Revolution.
Texas Tornado Tag Team Match: Blackpool Combat Club (ROH World Champion Claudio Castagnoli and Jon Moxley) vs. La Faccion Ingobernable (Preston Vance and RUSH) (w/ Jose)
– Moxley and Castagnoli won with an “Armbar” on Vance using a chain.
Backstage, it is shown that Kip Sabian, The Butcher and The Blade attacked Adam Page, with the Dark Order appearing to save him.
Jim Ross is shown sitting with Wardlow, and he says he has shared some personal stories with Samoa Joe. For as long as he can remember, that man still has every ounce of athleticism and drive, and he says he didn’t start having a father-son relationship until he was a little older, but unfortunately, he got stage four cancer. He managed to make it to his first independent show and promised his father he would make it, which was the last thing he said to him.
Wardlow never grew a beard or hair, but after watching cancer take it away from his father, he did. This is something that Samoa Joe knew, and he took that connection to his father out of him. Wardlow says Joe has survived every company and every monster, but he won’t survive him.
Singles Match: Josh Woods (w/ Ari Daivari, Mark Sterling and Tony Nese) vs. ROH World Tag Team Champion Mark Briscoe
– Mark won with a “Froggy Bow”.
Renee Paquette is then shown with Adam Cole and he says it’s been great and he couldn’t be happier to be back on the road. He’s a little despondent because he still can’t fight, but he’s learned to celebrate mini-wins like his eye doesn’t twitch or he doesn’t feel like he needs to throw up. Cole says there are so many chapters to his story that he hasn’t explored that yet, but he might soon. He looks at the list and thinks he’s never been better and he knows he needs to be prepared when he gets back. He has some ideas of who he wants to step in the ring with, it will be good for AEW and it will be good for Adam Cole.
MJF then goes to the ring and says it pisses him off that the fans love Bryan Danielson like they loved him back then, not too long ago, when they were Devil worshipers. He turned his back on fans before they had a chance to do that to him, but he’s honest about who he is, he’s the devil and Danielson is a useless bag of garbage. But he’s not here to talk about Danielson being a horrible human being, as he hates him because he has fans convinced he’s better than him.
He questions why fans think Danielson is the best in the world but he says we got into this business for one reason only and that is to be world champions and last time he checked that’s how you know you’re the best in the world. world, which Danielson never did in AEW. He knows Danielson will put on a great performance at the Revolution and put him through the toughest fight of his life. But, after the clock strikes zero, he is the one who will emerge victorious, because he is the best wrestler in the world and Danielson doesn’t have the courage to do what it takes.
MJF says maybe people will listen to a man Danielson has listened to his entire career, and he brings Christopher Daniels. Daniels says MJF paid him an obscene amount of money to verbally destroy Danielson, and there was a time he would have picked up and badmouthed Danielson for hours, but that’s not the man he is. Daniels says the truth is Danielson is going to end up with MJF.
He talks about how Danielson helped create ROH and points out how without ROH there might not be an AEW and there wouldn’t be an MJF. Daniels says that MJF hates Danielson because he is what MJF would like to be as he is the best in the world while MJF is a fraud. However, the champion has heard enough and knocks the microphone out of his hands, prompting Daniels to slap him across the face, but MJF lands a low blow in response before applying the Salt of The Earth until Danielson runs to the ring to chase him away.
Singles Match: ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Champion Brian Cage (w/ Prince Nana) vs. “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry
– JB won with a “Roll-up”.
However, when JB walks up the ramp, Christian Cage appears and Perry attacks him, prompting the veteran to spray something in his eyes. Cage then shows that his arm is perfectly fine and this leads to the Killswitch on the ramp.
Renee Paquette reveals that the Gunns will defend their titles at Revolution and the next two weeks will have Battle Royals to determine the opponents. The Acclaimed come out and say it won’t be a 3-Way, it will be a 4-Way, as they are calling for a rematch, because no matter how many teams there are, they will take them down.
Top Flight and AR Fox confront The Elite and suggest a rematch, but Don Callis tells them they are at the back of the queue. Darius Martin questions if they have the guts, and this prompts Kenny Omega to accept the challenge.
Singles Match: Adam Page vs. Kip Sabian (w/ Penelope Ford)
– Page won with a “Deadeye”.
After the match, Jon Moxley, Wheeler Yuta and Claudio Castagnoli come to the ring, and Moxley says they don’t have unfinished business, as a few weeks ago, Page was defeated. He has gained respect for Page but is not afraid because he has Page’s number and says there is no chance of Page beating him again so he should let it go. Page says he doesn’t think things end with a Roll-up, he thinks it ends when only one is left standing and he thinks it ends with Revolution.
Moxley says that he hoped that Page would want to enter this dark alley, and hoped that Page would not have friends to dissuade him, and this leads to the appearance of the Dark Order. Evil Uno says they completely protected him, he says Page asked him not to, then Uno tells him they aren’t afraid of Moxley and he shoves him in the face. Moxley tells Page – Revolution, Texas Death, as he looks beyond Evil Uno.
The Jericho Appreciation Society is shown backstage and Jericho says there won’t be another fight with Ricky Starks because he is below their level, but Daniel Garcia says he will prove Starks a fraud this Friday.
It is then revealed that HOOK is suspended pending an investigation for attacking Stokely Hathaway.
Triple Threat Match: Britt Baker (w/ Jamie Hayter) vs. Ruby Soho vs. Toni Storm (w/ Saraya)
– Soho won via pinfall on Baker after taking advantage of a “Hip Attack” from Storm.
