The Young Bucks hit stereo superkicks. Nick hits Cody with Cross Rhodes, and Matt picks up a near fall. Nick hits Dustin with a springboard plancha to the floor. The Young Bucks hit Cody with a Meltzer Driver for the win.
The Rhodes Brothers help each other up and stare at The Young Bucks. Everyone looks like they’ve had a lot taken out of them. An “AEW” chant fires up. Matt Jackson says things got competitive, and they’ve been making fun of the Rhodes. It was all in the spirit of competition. They’ve been all over the world and wrestled everyone. They’ve always heard the myth of The Rhodes Brothers. It was like a legend. Matt doesn’t watch much of the other product so he didn’t see it, but dammit they are one of the best tag teams they’ve ever been in the ring with.
All of a sudden music starts to play, and they realize they’re nearly out of time. Some of the AEW locker room comes in. Shad Khan presents a $150,000 check from AEW for the Fight For The Fallen charity. An “AEW” chant fires up. This is for all affected by gun violence. This is for the city of Jacksonville. Cody doesn’t know if they’re still on the air, but you can’t counter-program what AEW is doing. Perhaps you can counter-program some of them, but you can’t counter-program the love and revolution that is All Elite Wrestling. When they go to TNT, is the crowd coming with them? The crowd cheers in the affirmative. Cody doesn’t have a signature line, so he turns to Kenny Omega.
Omega thanks the crowd for coming out and supporting a great cause. As much as today was about making a statement with their wrestling, they’re making more of a statement with their contributions. As much as he would love to sign off and bid adieu, it feels inappropriate. As much as he would love to say goodbye and goodnight, they should just leave it at goodbye and goodnight. Omega then says since they’re off the air (they’re not), they’re trading “bang” in for “boing.” Omega says, “Goodbye, smooch, good night, and BOING!” Omega thanks the crowd for enduring the heat and donating to a great cause.
