The Inner Circle(Chris Jericho, Santana & Ortiz) defeated Jurassic Express (Jungle Boy, Luchasaurus & Marko Stunt). Luchasaurus got involved with Jake Hager in the dying minutes of the match. This gave Jericho the opportunity to hit the judas effect on Marko Stunt and get the pin.
Maxwell Jacob Friedman(MJF) defeated Joey Janela. Kip Sabian and Penelope Ford came out to distract Janela. Janela went for the elbow drop from the top but nobody was home. MJF hit the double-cross finisher to get the win.
Post-match, MJF started his promo but was soon interrupted by Cody Rhodes. MJF continued to make fun of Cody but Cody can’t touch him due to stipulation for their match at AEW Revolution. MJF left the ring after kicking the mic away. As MJF was on the ramp, Cody told him that him not able to touch him does not mean that others can’t. The Young Bucks superkick MJF on the ramp.
Kenny Omega and Adam Page were doing a backstage interview where Page was still acting annoying. The Young Bucks came to congratulate them. Page commented that he was surprised that they won the title before Young Bucks. Bucks are more annoyed with Page.
