The show starts with a video recapping the last couple of months for The Elite and how they haven’t been winning in that period. We hear from each member as we see clips of the Inner Circle, MJF, and others taking out the group.
Special guest Taz is on commentary with Jim Ross and Excalibur. We see a vignette that shows Darby Allin on a skateboard with a mask of Cody’s face. He burns the mask later.
Cody Rhodes defeated Darby Allin(rematch from Fyter Fest). Arn Anderson, nightmare family’s coach, was in Cody’s corner. The match went back and forth deep into 17 or 18th minute(20-minute time limit). Cody got her knees up when Allin went for the coffin drop and caught Allin for the cover to get the pin.
Backstage, Jen Decker talks with all three members of SCU. Sammy Guevara comes to them and talks trash to Christopher Daniels to set-up a match for next week on Dynamite.
Riho(c) defeated Nyla Rose, Britt Baker and Hikaru Shida to retain the AEW Women’s Championship. A fun 4-way match. Rose was taken out near the end by double knees from Riho and a slam from Shida. Britt Baker superkicked Shida and tried to put her in the lockjaw when Riho hit her flipper her over with the jackknife pin to get the win.
Post-match, Rose takes down Riho with a clothesline. She puts Riho through a table with a diving splash.
Backstage, Joey Janela is interviewed by Alex Marvez. Penelope Ford hit him with a lowblow from behind. Kip Sabian mocks him and laughs on him before heading off. Dark Order gets a pre-recorded promo, saying they will take out the group.
Jon Moxley defeated Trent with back to back paradigm shifts. Post-match, Sammy Guevara comes out and cuts a short promo, setting the field for AEW World Champion Chris Jericho. Jericho says he wants Moxley to lead the group with him and offers 49% of the ‘Inner Circle, LLC’ and a Ford GT. Moxley gets on the mic and says he has always considered Jericho a friend and a mentor. He will give his answer in-person next week.
