The show also had Colt Cabana making his in-ring debut for AEW, a surprise appearance from Jake "The Snake" Roberts and in the main event, Chris Jericho and Sammy Guevara defeated Darby Allin in an impromptu handicap match after Moxley, Allin's original partner for the match, was attacked by The Inner Circle.

NXT featured not one but two steel cage matches with the first one being Dakota Kai vs. Tegan Nox and the main event being Velveteen Dream vs. Roderick Strong. The show also saw Mauro Ranallo have a sitdown interview with Johnny Gargano.
