Cody is out to defend his TNT Championship, but he’s interrupted by Eddie Kingston. He says he grew up around alcoholics and junkies, and he had to survive and grind. He tells Cody he couldn’t survive a day in his shoes and doesn’t know what grinding really means. Everyone who Cody’s faced so far has been a child, but he’s a grown man. Eddie was paid to show up AEW and now he’ll get paid to kick Cody’s ass. He also threatens to gouge Arn’s eye out. The match is now made into a No Disqualification match.

We get a promo from Jon Moxley, who says he prides himself on keeping it real. When he says he’ll do something, he’s going to do it. Moxley said he could almost feel Cage’s tendons popping and six months of rehab, but while he was disappointed, Tazz made the right call in throwing in the towel. But next time for Brian Cage, he won’t be letting go.
Before his match, MJF talks up Griff and he says Griff is a prodigy with a heart of gold. He wants to give him an opportunity to promote himself as Jungle Man, but Griff corrects him.

Griff reminds him that he lost a tag team match at Fyter Fest before MJF blindsides him with the mic.

We get a segment with Dr. Baker. Baker recalls getting her face smashed by Shida and returning a week later. And then her nose was taking advantage of. She then reminds us of rule number 4, never count out a role model. Conspirators and disfigurement aside, she’s ready to make a huge comeback. She compares her comeback to MJ returning to the NBA for the Wizards and Tony reminds Tony that Jordan didn’t make the playoffs with the Wizards. Dr. Baker tells Tony to stop being an asshole and remains calling herself Michael Jordan.
Out comes Tazz and Brian Cage. Tazz says he and Cage havev had heated discussions over the past week and Cage was close to firing him, but cooler heads prevail. Tazz explained to Cage why he did what he did, and he explained that it was a business decision. Taz he gives Moxley credit for his armbar, and Tazz wasn’t going to allow Cage’s bicep tendon torn a second time. He stands behind his decision as a business decision. He assures Moxley and everyone else that Cage will never be in that position again because he would never tap and he’s not wired to tap. That’s why he’s FTW Champion, because he has a FTW mindset. No surrender, and no quit. Out comes Darby Allin. He approaches the ring before Ricky Starr attacks him from behind.
Cage powerbombs Allin into the ring and he and Starks jump Allin int he ring before Moxley comes with a barbed wire bat to save him.
