Steel Cage Match: Shawn Spears vs. Wardlow with MJF as the special referee
MJF cannot find the key for Wardlow’s handcuffs to start with, and while he is ‘searching,’ Shawn Spears begins attacking him. MJF then finds the key, but rather than unlocking him, he starts putting a beating onto Wardlow as well. The two men then work together with a double team, sending Wardlow into the steel face-first.
Wardlow then starts fighting back against Spears, getting one over him, but he’s not able to touch MJF. However, that’s no problem for him, as he snaps the handcuffs himself. He then nails Spears with several clotheslines before sending him crashing into the steel structure himself.
Shawn tries to climb the structure but Wardlow smashes him into the steel, and as he falls back down Wardlow hits his Swanton Bomb, but MJF won’t count the pinfall. Wardlow then looks to nail a Powerbomb, but as he lifts him up MJF hits a low blow, which is followed by the C4. MJF goes for a fast count, but Wardlow still kicks out, going against that plan!
Spears then brings in a chair, but as he tries to hit his opponent, Wardlow moves, and instead, the Chairman hits his friend, MJF with a headshot. With Spears all alone, he quickly becomes the victim of the Powerbomb Symphony! Wardlow hits three and a new referee makes his presence known! Wardlow then hits another Powerbomb onto the chair and he simply stands on him to get the three count.
After the match, Wardlow looks to hit a Powerbomb on MJF, but the security gets in to stop it as he crawls out of the cage to escape. However, Wardlow showcases his strength by taking them all out before climbing to the top of the cage to point at his Double Or Nothing opponent.
– The Jericho Appreciation Society are shown walking into the arena as they see a member of staff with a Jon Moxley t-shirt. This leads to Chris Jericho throwing a fireball in his face…because he’s a wizard.
Hangman Page & CM Punk Face-To-Face
CM Punk says it is safe to say the biggest moment of his career happened in Las Vegas, and he plans on respectfully walking out the champion this Sunday. Hangman Page says he told him what he wasn’t going to do to him, and he didn’t stutter. There’s nothing Punk can do to him to take the title away from him.
Punk isn’t sure why the champion is taking this personally as he is possibly the toughest SOB on this roster, and there’s a locker room full of people waiting. Punk says this is just business and isn’t personal for him. The champion then takes the microphone from Tony Schiavone and he repeats what he said several weeks ago about wanting to destroy and embarrass Punk.
He didn’t mean at Double Or Nothing, he meant right now. He’s been waiting months for this moment, and he imagined himself sitting up the ramp cross-legged to deliver his own pipebomb. But he realized in this moment he can’t do it, and not because he’s afraid of being fired or afraid of Punk
He says it’s exactly what Punk would do, and feeding his pettiness and cowardness isn’t the right thing for him to do. He doesn’t hate Punk, he pities him and he has no respect for what he’s done since he got here. Page doesn’t think Punk gets it, it’s about what happens when the red light turns off, it’s about the quiet moments when nobody is watching. He says Punk talks a big game about workers, but he’s shown the opposite since he got here.
Hangman says this is home, and on Sunday he will be defending All Elite Wrestling from Punk! The challenger once again says he doesn’t know why Page is angry. If he’s so upset that he is here, then Page will have to do something about it on Sunday, he respects the champion but the roads he traveled to get here were paved by him.
He says this house that Page built was made from lumber of trees he chopped down, Punk says he gave him the blueprint, and he says he will shake his hand right now. Hangman isn’t interested in that and Punk pushes him so the champion drops him with a punch.
Jon Moxley & Eddie Kingston vs. Private Party
As Private Party make their entrance they immediately get jumped by their opponents as this one gets started immediately. The Blackpool Combat Club member and Eddie Kingston take control early on in this one with frequent tags. But Private Party responds with a double dropkick to Moxley.
Jon fires back with a huge clothesline at Kassidy as he then dumps him out of the ring. The brawl continues outside with Kingston and Quen, while Moxley locks in a Cloverleaf to Kassidy inside the ring. Kassidy tries to fire back with a few elbow strikes and that leads to Quen tagging in as he dives in with a huge clothesline.
Marq sends his opponents outside the ring and the Private Party members then take them out again with dives. Isaiah drops Moxley in the ring with Quen coming in with a Shooting Star Press from the top rope, but Moxley kicks out. The duo look for silly string but Moxley responds with a lariat while Kingston takes out Quen with a back elbow. They both then attack their opponents before the Paradigm Shift for the win.
Winners: Eddie Kingston & Private Party
– After the match, the JAS jump their Double Or Nothing rivals, but Santana, Ortiz, and Bryan Danielson make the save as they all begin brawling.
FTR (C) vs. Roppongi Vice (ROH Tag Team Championship Match)
Cash Wheeler takes control well early with some shoulder tackles, but Rocky Romero shows his own abilities with several quick pinfall attempts as he then looks to go for an arm submission but Cash wriggles away. Both men tag out and Dax Harwood then drops Trent with a shoulder tackle before Trent fires back with some chops.
The two men then go back and forth with them as Dax eventually comes out on top and he tags in Wheeler, lifting him up and dropping him down onto his opponent. Trent and Romero work together to take control though, and Wheeler has to use a rope break to avoid being pinned.
Cash fires back with an inverted atomic drop, but Trent immediately tags in and keeps Wheeler isolated. They hit a double suplex but the FTR star kicks out to stay in this one. Cash finally makes hashtag though and Harwood comes in hot with lots of strikes to both of his opponents.
