Wardlow comes out with some big standup cutouts of MJF beating CM
Punk and sets them up in the ring. Wardlow gave Justin Roberts a
note and he introduces FTR and Tully Blanchard followed by Spears
and then MJF. Tony Schiavone points out that everyone but Wardlow
got an entrance. MJF is carried out to the ring on a damn throne. He
also makes out with one of the women that accompany him to the ring.
MJF says he proved without a doubt last week he is the best wrestler
on the planet. He runs down the names of guys like Bryan Danielson,
Hangman Page, Kenny Omega and Adam Cole and says that everyone is
looking at the best in the world. He says he just beat Punk in
Chicago, so that means he’s better than the best in the world. MJF
says last week was actually bitter sweet because as he was laying on
top of Punk a lot of emotion came over him because he realized he
beat someone he grew up watching.
MJF says he whispered heartwarming words into Punk’s ear after the
match, “you suck.” He says that he wouldn’t have been able to defeat
Punk without Shawn Spears helping him warm up before the match.
Spears says he got MJF a gift and presents a new shirt that is
available to buy that says “Better than the Best in the World.” MJF
says that it’s time for him to get his world title shot.
CM Punk walks out and says that MJF’s win was about as suspect as
his spray tan. Punk says that he doesn’t like to ask for help but
he’s learned from his mistakes and has some backup. Sting and Darby
Allin walk out carrying bats. Punk says either he gets what he wants
or they will beat it out of them. Punk demands a rematch but Punk
says he doesn’t deserve a rematch. Punk says he isn’t talking to
MJF, he’s talking to the guy that actually beat him Wardlow. He says
that if it wasn’t for Wardlow no one in the Pinnacle would never win
Dax Harwood suggests they do a rematch from the trios match they had
a few weeks ago and MJF says instead of that if Punk and a partner
of his choosing can beat FTR then he will give Punk any match he
wants any time and any place. The stipulation is that partner can’t
be Sting or Allin.
In the back, Andrade meets with Sting and Allin. Andrade introduces
himself to Sting and says everyone knows “this kid” works for him.
Sting says he’s not a kid and if he has an issue with Allin then he
should speak to him on his own. Allin says he has bigger things to
do than work for Andrade, like win back the TNT Title. Andrade says
that they have something in common, Allin is a former TNT Champion
but Andrade is the next TNT Champion.
Wardlow w/Shawn Spears vs. The Blade
Blade attacks Wardlow as he gets in the ring and goes after his
knee, but Wardlow destroys him with a Lariat. Wardlow Belly-to-Belly
Suplxes Blade across the ring followed by a second one and then a
third. Wardlow slams Blade into the ring post after Blade rolled to
the floor to try and get away.
Blade hits a series of knees to Wardlow but gets caught on the third
attempt and Powerbombed into oblivion. Wardlow hits the Powerbomb
Symphony for the pin.
Winner: Wardlow via pinfall (Powerbomb Symphony)
Spears attacks Blade with a chair after the match.
In a vignette, Penta is shown arriving at a graveyard. Alex narrates
the video as Penta digs up his old Pentagon Dark mask and says that
it is time for “Penta Oscura” (aka Penta Dark) to rise.
Chris Jericho comes out with Sammy Guevara and Jake Hager and says
that he hasn’t seen Santana or Otiz all day, which brings them out
to the ring with their own music. Jericho says that PNP embarrassed
him during their trios match a few weeks ago and they robbed his
fans of seeing him in the ring that night. He asks what their
Santana says “enough of this corny shit” and says that Jericho only
cares about himself. He says any fight they’ve had has always been
for the betterment of Jericho. Santana says any time they’ve had a
little bit of spotlight on themselves it gets shut down and thrown
to the side so they can come to his rescue. Santana says they came
out man-to-man to tell Jericho the days of PNP playing second fiddle
are over and done with. Santana keeps cutting Jericho off saying he
isn’t done talking. He says that Jericho has been standing in their
way making sure they didn’t get a bigger spotlight than him. He
tells Jericho to thank Ortiz because if it wasn’t for him he would
have dropped Jericho a long time ago.
Jericho says that Santana is a lot like Eddie Guerrero in terms of
his temper but he says Eddie Kingston is getting in his head. He
says that Jericho got them Main Events and better spots and money
than they ever had. Jericho reminds PNP that they got a shot at the
Tag Titles last year and lost and that has nothing to do with him.
Jericho says he can kick them out of the Inner Circle and says that
maybe he invited the wrong two members of LAX to join. He asks Hager
if he has Hernandez and Homicide’s numbers causing Santana to go
Sammy Guevara gets between them but Jericho tells him to shut the
hell up. Sammy says they are all like brothers to him but he wants
to be the greatest TNT Champion in AEW and all this bickering isn’t
helping him. He takes off his Inner Circle jacket and says that he
has quit this group before and unless they can figure this shit out
he will quit again.
Ortiz says that Jericho can’t be any more wrong about Kingston and
says that all this bickering won’t settle anything. He says where
they come from if you have an issue, you don’t have a meeting, you
fight. He challenges Jericho and Hager to a match for next week to
“settle this shit once and for all.” Jericho accepts and he and
In the back, Schiavone hypes up a Young Bucks vs. Roppongi Vice
