FTR vs. Private Party
The action just starts after a delay due to a long-running NBA game. FTR has secured the managerial services of Tully Blanchard it appears. Tully Blanchard has a new coaching jacket. Early on, Marq Quen out quicks Dax Harwood. Following all four men getting in the ring and a double dropkick taking FTR to the floor, FTR cheated to get the advantage and briefly took control.
Private Party begins to take over control with tandem offense including a camel clutch/ double stomp combo. Dax and Cash find reprieve on the floor and slow the pace down with a quickly timed tag and a unique double clothesline. At this stage, Quen has been the legal man for over half of this match and Harwood slaps on a rear chinlock, bringing the pace to a crawl. Quen would get a sleeper hold on Dax but a properly timed tag quickly saw Marq on the wrong end of a sunset flip/lariat combo. Cash would once again utilize a rear chin lock. But a badly timed double axe handle from the apron sent Wheeler crashing into the barricade and allowed Isiah Kassidy to finally tag in.
Kassidy would use his quickness to take out both men in FTR including utilizing a springboard Jawbreaker to take the illegal team member off the apron. Kassidy would tag in Quen, who attempted to get a pin off of a springboard crossbody. After a few quick pinfall attempts, FTR got the advantage again. Kassidy tried to dive onto Wheeler but Tully Blanchard pulled his guy out of the way. Shortly thereafter, FTR hits the Goodnight Express (Shatter Machine) and they earned their sixth victory in AEW.
- Jon Moxley cut a promo about how Maxwell Jacob Friedman being so egotistical bothers him and how tough guys don't need to say much if they're actually tough. Mox wants to know what MJF is hiding behind that bravado.

Eight-Man Tag Team Match: Butcher, Blade & Lucha Bros vs. Natural Nightmares & Jurassic Express
All eight men did not even wait for the proper introductions. The heels took the faces to the outside and Pentagon and Fenix did stereo dives. QT Marshall would get a chance to shine briefly before Dustin Rhodes would be brought in to slow down the pace of the match. All four heels would get their opportunity to shine while Dustin Rhodes mounted several unsuccessful comebacks. During a picture-in-picture commercial break, Fenix mostly held control over Dustin Rhodes including a jumping twisting enzuigiri. Back from break, Dustin Rhodes was able to make the hot tag to Luchasaurus.
This allowed the babyfaces a moment to take control, Jungle Boy hit a tope but Pentagon gained control and tried to hit the package piledriver on Jungle Boy but Blade wanted to hit Fenix’s portion of the Lucha Brothers finish, this led to dissension which led to Jungle Boy getting a quick rollup victory on Blade.
Winner: Natural Nightmares & Jurassic Express

Six-Man Tag Team Match: Dark Order vs. The Elite
Nick and V start things off. Quickly, the standard AEW tag fair starts off and the Jackson's and Kenny make quick tags and get the early advantage. However, the Dark Order would take over when they had a low blow on Omega and begin using a chair on Kenny on the outside.
Dark Order focuses on Omega and we cut to a picture and picture break… Back from the picture-in-picture break, Nick Jackson hit a flurry of offense including a long lower from the middle rope. Nick would get the tag into Matt and the brothers hit a bulldog/dropkick combo on Reynolds. Omega would get back in and hit some moves before tagging in Matt who wound up on the receiving end of a triple-team as the Dark Order get a two count. The numbers game wouldn’t prevail as Matt fights off the Dark Order and The Bucks catch a superkick onto Angels. This led to a Meltzer Driver which swiftly transitioned into a One-Winged Angel
