Winner - CM Punk

After the match, Page rushes the ring and comes face-to-face with Punk, who grabs a microphone and says from the looks of it, last week, it looks like Page is taking things personal. Punk says it's not personal to him, it's just business. Punk says he used to look in the mirror and ask himself if he's the guy but now he looked himself in the mirror and asked himself if he's the champion...and he is. Punk said he just kicked Page's boy's ass and that's the blueprint for what's to come at Double Or Nothing. Punk offers his hand for a handshake but Page flips him off and exits.

We then see Dr. Britt Baker D.M.D. backstage with Jamie Hayter and Rebel backstage with Tony Schiavone. Britt says it's not fair that everyone else gets to know their opponent but she has to fight the joker and won't be able to properly prepare. Britt says Hayter will beat Toni Storm tonight and if she and Hayter both win and have to face each other in the semifinals, it'll be a fair fight and the better woman will win.

MJF’s music hits to a massive pop in his hometown of Long Island and out he comes, donning a custom MJF New York Islanders jersey. Mark Sterling and Shawn Spears are already in the ring alongside over a dozen members of security.

MJF calls Long Island the most beautiful place on earth and calls Wardlow a ‘big, dumb oof’. MJF says if Wardlow beats him at Double Or Nothing, he’ll let him out of his contract. MJF says he’ll give Wardlow a chance to speak to his people and tells the crowd [while winking] to never get out of their seat and boo Wardlow while he talks, even the ‘poor but still beautiful’ people in the ‘cheap seats’. MJF says under no circumstances does he want the crowd to create the ‘loudest chorus of boos’ in professional wrestling history. MJF gives the floor to Wardlow, the crowd boos loudly and Wardlow tries to talk but his microphone is turned off. MJF says he tried to let Wardlow talk but it looks like it just didn’t work out. MJF goes over the conditions and talks about his best friend, Cody Rhodes. MJF says the fans don’t wanna talk about 2024, neither does ‘the guy in the back’, referencing his impending free agency and Tony Khan. MJF says Shawn Spears is going to whip him with a belt 10 times and if he’s gets through that, Wardlow has to face Shawn Spears inside of a steel cage with the special guest referee…which is Maxwell Jacob Friedman and it Wardlow gets through all that, Wardlow gets his match at Double Or Nothing. MJF says if Wardlow wins, he’s out of his contract with MJF but if he loses…he can’t sign a contract with AEW. Wardlow can’t sign it because of the handcuffs, MJF tells security to take the cuffs off so he can sign it. Wardlow signs it, MJF tells security to put the cuffs back on and Wardlow attacks security. MJF hides behind Shawn Spears, Wardlow continues the beat-down of security and then locks eyes with Spears. Wardlow drops Spears with a hook, MJF tries to escape but Wardlow catches him and looks for a power-bomb but Sterling jumps on Wardlow’s back as MJF and Spears retreat. Wardlow turns his attention to Sterling and sends Sterling through the table with a power-bomb. MJF and Wardlow yell at each other from afar and we head to a commercial break.

Back from the break and Chris Jericho, Jake Hager, Daniel Garcia and 2point0 of Jericho Appreciation Society make their way down to the ring for their ‘victory speech’. Ang addresses the ‘AEW galaxy’ and welcomes the fans to their victory speech. Matt asks the crowd if they wanna know what turns him on and ‘makes’ his ‘nipples hard’. Matt says it’s because he’s a member of the Jericho Appreciation Society. Jericho says he was actually born on Long Island but he moved away very quickly because ‘this place sucks’. Jericho tells a fan he’ll throw a fireball in his face because he’s a ‘wizard’. Jericho says JAS has done exactly what they said they were gonna do and says Jericho 2:16 says he just burned your face. Jericho tells Eddie Kingston stay home and take care of his wife and if she doesn’t feel any better, to just give him a call. Daniel Garcia says any time a sports entertainer steps into the ring with a professional wrestler, the sports entertainer wins every single time. Jon Moxley’s music hits and out comes the former AEW World Champion! Jericho tells Moxley to leave because there’s 5 of them and only 1 of him. Moxley laughs and out comes Bryan Danielson, Wheeler Yuta and William Regal of Blackpool Combat Club! Jericho says there’s still 5 of them and only 4 of them…and Kingston, Santana and Ortiz pop up from behind and now it’s 7 on 5 (not counting Regal). Everyone starts to brawl and Jericho escapes but Regal wallops Jericho with a hook and JAS retreats!
