Winner: Blackpool Combat Club (Jon Moxley & Claudio Castagnoli)

AEW TNT Championship Falls Count Anywhere: Wardlow (c) vs. Powerhouse Hobbs

This match started in the parking lot, and Powerhouse Hobbs would be back body dropped onto the hood of a car cracking the windshield. The car must have belonged to him as he pulled out the brass ring that he won in the ladder match last week and struck Wardlow in the gut. They would eventually make their way into a production truck, where Wardlow would throw Hobbs through a portion of the truck. They thought their way into the arena, the crowd chanted for tables, and Wardlow obliged by delivering a Swanton bomb through the table. Wardlow hit a Powerbomb but appeared to hurt himself in the process.

In the end, both men fought their way up to the announce table, and QT Marshall, wearing a QTV shirt, hit Wardlow in the back with a chair and helped Hobbs Powerbomb Wardlow off the stage leading to Wardlow being unable to answer the count of 10 and Powerhouse Hobbs becoming the new TNT Champion.
