After the match, AEW World Champion Adam 'Hangman' Page comes down to the ring with a vengeance. Page takes out both Kyle O'Reilly and Bobby Fish, The Young Bucks watch-on and don't help, Adam Cole comes down and sneaks behind Page, looks for a super-kick but Page catches it, takes Cole down, unloads shots, and looks for The Buckshot Lariat but Fish & KOR make the save. Silver takes out Fish & KOR and Page sets up a chair in the ring for 'story time with Adam Page, bay bay'. Page says he and Cole's tale began in 2008 when a smug little man named Adam Cole started wrestling and while he would win world titles all around the world, when his world started crashing down around him, he came back to his friends and to get to the most prestigious title in all of professional wrestling, the AEW World Championship. Page says little did Cole know, he's one-step from entering a six foot hole and at Revolution, he's gonna be put into that grave and when he hears that sound, it'll be a Buckshot Lariat and that sound is BOOM.

Backstage we see Tony Schiavone with Bryan Danielson. Tony asks Bryan about Daniel Garcia, Bryan says Daniel reminds him of himself and while Daniel's an excellent technician, he hangs around with the 'idiots' 2point0. Bryan turns his attention to Jon Moxley and says Moxley told him before they team together, they must bleed together...he'll get his answer, TONIGHT. We then head to a commercial break.

Back from the break and MJF makes his way down to the ring. MJF says he knows it's easy to think that he was raised with a silver spoon in his mouth but the fact is at one point in his life, the only reason he got out of bed in the morning was because of professional wrestling. MJF says the day he met CM Punk as a kid, it meant everything to him. He was just 11-years old with attention deficit disorder. MJF says every single day for him at school was hell but he was good at Football and he was one of only two Jewish kids that tried out for the Football team. MJF says he thought for the first-time that he fit-in but one day he saw his teammates walking up to him and he thought he was gonna make friends for the first-time but they decided to throw quarters at him and saw 'pick it up Jew boy, pick it up.' MJF says he went home and cried and cried but then he stopped because that night he was about to meet his hero CM Punk at an autograph signing and that day meant everything to him and after he got him, he promised himself that he was going to follow in CM Punk's footsteps and he was going to become the best in the world. MJF says in December 2013 he was bigger and stronger and had Football scholarships coming in but he just wanted to become a professional wrestler. MJF says he would practice promos in the mirror and watch wrestling tapes until his eyes bled all because he wanted to be just like CM Punk. MJF says in January 2014, CM Punk left him when he needed him the most and that's when he realize if the best in the world, how can some '5 foot 5, ADD riddled Jew boy' do it? MJF says he buried his dreams and went to college like a 'good boy' until one day he was on Twitter and saw a picture of CM Punk shaking hands with Bryan Danielson. MJF says he was livid and packed his bags and went home and promised himself that he was going to become the best in the world in spite of CM Punk. MJF says he made a promise that whenever some kid that's getting bullied in school watches him on TV, he won't leave him like Punk did and at Revolution, Punk can do whatever he wants, but he'll never quit because that would mean he's a coward just like Punk. MJF says he's better than Punk and Punk knows it. CM Punk makes his way down to the ring. Punk stands on the apron and he and MJF stare each other down. Punk eventually gets into the ring and asks MJF if that's true, MJF, with a tear in his eye says it's true and walks out of the ring.

House of Black (Malakai Black & Brody King) vs. PAC & Penta Oscuro (with Alex Abrahantes)

PAC knocks Brody and Malakai to the outside, Penta takes out both members of House of Black with a dive to the outside, everyone recovers and PAC and Black officially start this one out. PAC nails Black with a 450' splash, goes for the cover but Black kicks out at two-and-a-half. PAC tags in Penta who slams Black, tosses him into the corner and tags PAC right back in. Black counters and tosses PAC into the opposite corner and makes the tag to King, who nails PAC with a slam, goes for the cover but PAC kicks out at two as we head to a commercial break. Back from the break and Black and King are in control, Black misses a knee on PAC, who slides out of the way and Black nails King with the accidentally knee.

Black makes the self-tag, Penta and PAC don't realize it, Black tries to spit the mist into Penta's face but Penta blocks his mouth and makes him choke on his own mist and rolls him up for the win!

Winners - PAC & Penta Oscuro

After the match, Brody King attacks both PAC and Penta Oscuro. Malakai Black washes the mist out of his mouth and retrieves Penta's shovel. Black lifts the shoulder over Penta's head but the lights go out and Buddy Matthews is here! Black falls down in shock, King looks surprised as well. Matthews slowly walks around Black as the crowd Reina down 'holy shit!' chants but Matthews drills PAC with a super-kick and attacks Penta. King takes out all security members who try to make the save, Black stops Matthews from continuing his attack on PAC, King retrieves a steel chair, Matthews holds Penta in position, Black shouts instructions at Mathews and Matthews drives Penta face-first into the chair. The House of Black pose in the ring, the lights go out once again and when they come back on, they're gone and we head to a commercial break.

Back from the break and Eddie Kingston makes his way down to the ring. Chris Jericho does the same shortly thereafter. Kingston asks the crowd if they're done massaging Jericho's ego with singing his theme song. Eddie says he doesn't like the camera man and asks why security is surrounding them. Jericho says he arranged for the security to be there to allow them to talk like grown men and not fight like 'street thugs', which Kingston is according to Jericho. Eddie says he just wants to fight Jericho and since Jericho won't fight him tonight, Kingston shouts out to Tony Khan for Kris Statlander and Willow Nightengale to come out and fight because this a wrestling company and not an entertainment company and if Jericho wants to go back to an entertainment company, he can go 'down the block'...where WWE's headquarters are. Jericho says since they're just down the road from WWE, he'll give Kingston some sports entertainment but this will actually be entertaining. Jericho says he's gonna tell Eddie Kingston the story about Eddie Kingston. Jericho says everyone was so excited when Eddie signed with AEW but he had no clue who he was and he thought they were talking about Eddie Edwards and then he saw Kingston and realized why he never heard about him, because he looks like a jobber. Jericho says he saw Eddie's match against 'what's his name', AKA Cody Rhodes and then he saw Kingston's promo and thought he was good, very good. Jericho says he thought Eddie had what it takes to go to the top and told Eddie himself that it wouldn't be long until he reached the top because the fans love him. Jericho says it was such a feel good story for Eddie who overcame his physical and mental issues and after over 20-years on the independent scene but he finally made it to the big-time in AEW at 38-years old. Jericho says he doesn't give 'two shits' about Eddie's sob story because he's jealous of him [Jericho]. Jericho says he made it worldwide at 22-years old and by the time he was 38, he had main evented countless pay-per-views, won world championships all around the world and made millions of dollars and deep down, Eddie knows he can never be at his level. Kingston asks Jericho if he wants a cookie and says the only reason Jericho main evented all these shows is because he [Kingston] wasn't there. Eddie says he doesn't talk to the promoters and get people's legs cut off and he'll tell promoters to screw off because he's gotta look himself in the mirror. Eddie says he doesn't wanna talk to Jericho because all he's doing is sucking the blood out of him and his blood is too tough for Jericho. Eddie says he'd rather do things on his own and he wants to fight. Eddie challenges Jericho to a match at Revolution, Jericho says he'll answer the question but he first wants to ask Eddie a question. Jericho asks Eddie if he knows what achieveaphobia means, Eddie says he has a GED, so no, he doesn't. Jericho says it means that someone is scared of success, which describes Eddie to a tee. Jericho says he knows Eddie's family history and he knows that Eddie's first hero was his uncle...who was a failure...and his father, who was also a failure and Eddie knows he's gonna be a failure himself. Jericho says Eddie can't win the big one and when it comes to challenging Jericho at a pay-per-view, he's the big one, not Moxley, not Punk, not Page, nobody and if he wants the big one at Revolution, he's got it! Jericho says if Eddie beats him, he'll look Eddie in the eyes and tell him that he has his utmost respect. Eddie warns Jericho and says it's great that they have the match but he doesn't want the Jericho that fought in a Mimosa Match and not the one who got tossed off a cage by MJF, he wants the first AEW World Champion Chris Jericho, he wants the Chris Jericho that turned WCW upside down and if he doesn't, he'll eat Jericho alive. Jericho says Eddie will get that Chris Jericho at Revolution and he can see it in Eddie's eyes that he doesn't believe in himself that he can beat Jericho and says that Eddie is a loser and that's he'll ever be. Jericho tells production to hit his music, which they do and Jericho walks out.

Ricky Starks (with Powerhouse Hobbs & Taz) vs. 10 — Face of The Revolution Qualifying Match

10 is the aggressor early and often. 10 tosses Starks into the corner and nails him with a splash then a shoulder tackle and the big man scoops and slams the FTW Champion as we head to a commercial break. Back from the break, Starks nails 10 with a neck-breaker and a corner spear. 10 comes roaring back with some strikes then a Full-Nelson and then locks-in a head-lock, Starks grabs at 10's mask, spins him around and nails him with a spear for the 1-2-3 and the win!

Winner - Ricky Starks (Qualifies for the Face of The Revolution Match)

Backstage we see Kyle O'Reilly, Bobby Fish and Adam Cole. Matt and Nick Jackson of The Young Bucks quickly interrupt and say that they were double-crossed by KOR and Fish. Matt says it's okay because they have another chance at qualifying next week and when they do, they're going to kick KOR and Fish's ass at Revolution. The Bucks walk out and Cole shouts at KOR and Fish that they need to get along with Matt and Nick. KOR and Fish are visibly frustrated and walk out.

Jade Cargill (C) (with Mark Sterling) vs. The Bunny (with Matt Hardy) — TBS Championship

The pair lock-up to start, Bryan gets the better of the exchange and tosses Garcia to the corner before shouting at him to come back and lock-up. They lock right back up, Garcia unloads chops to Bryan's chest, Bryan ankle-picks him and locks Garcia's legs up and starts unloading strikes to Garcia's mid-section. Bryan looks for the Labelle Lock, Garcia rolls to the ropes and ends up in the Labelle Lock but Garcia swings his legs and grabs the bottom rope to force the break. Bryan slaps Garcia on the break, Garcia hooks him in the jaw, Bryan clubs Garcia with an uppercut but Garcia launches himself of the ropes and drills Bryan in the back of the leg with a shoulder as we head to a commercial break.

Bryan slaps Garcia in the face, Garcia catches an elbow strike and fires an elbow that nails Bryan in the jaw. Bryan trips up Garcia, locks-in the triangle-choke and Garcia goes to sleep! What a match!

Winner - Bryan Danielson

After the match, Bryan says that's exactly what he wanted to see. Bryan asks the crowd if Garcia was violent enough, they cheer but Matt Lee and Jeff Parker of 2point0 attack Bryan. Jon Moxley's music hits and he makes way to the ring through the crowd. Lee and Parker retreat, Garcia tries to sneak behind Moxley with a chair but he eats a Paradigm Shift from Moxley. Bryan and Moxley star each other down as the crowd goes crazy. Bryan says he doesn't need a chair to make anybody bleed and if they must bleed together before teaming together, Moxley's got it. Bryan tells Moxley not to be surprised if he's the only one bleeding and they stare each other down face-to-face as the show goes off-the-air.
