We then see Jon Moxley backstage. Moxley says it's been a strange year and it's even more than people already know.

Moxley tells his mother that he loves her and we head to a commercial break.

Back from the break and Tony Schiavone announces the BRAND NEW AEW All Atlantic Championship, which will feature an eight-man tournament for the title, which will see Ethan Page vs. Miro, Penta Oscuro vs. Malakai Black, an unannounced NJPW matchup and our next matchup of the evening, PAC vs. Buddy Matthews.

Trent says Best Friends were cheated out of the Ring Of Honor Tag Team Titles and calls out the champions, FTR. Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler make their way down to the ring. Cash says the finish to their match doesn’t feel right to him either. Dax says if it was their choice, they’d have their rematch, tonight. Dax says Trent’s issues shouldn’t be with he and Cash, it should be with ‘Will Ospreay’s little bitch boys’…and out comes Will Ospreay! Jeff Cobb and Great-O-Khan also make their way down to the ring and the brawl is on. United Empire stand tall over FTR and Trent and the segment ends.

Winner - ‘Hangman’ Adam Page

After the match, Page says he has a lot to say about the AEW World Championship but tonight is not the night. Page says he wasn’t in the Casino Battle Royale so it doesn’t look like he’ll get another shot at the title anytime soon…but that’s not the only title in professional wrestling and Page challenges IWGP Heavyweight Champion Kazuchika Okada to a match at Forbidden Door! Adam Cole comes down from commentary and says that Jay White may actually be the IWGP Heavyweight Champion by the time Forbidden Door rolls around. Cole tells Page that nobody will stop him from becoming the next AEW World Title because he’s the ‘franchise player’ in AEW.

We then head to a commercial break.

Back from the break and Tony Schiavone is in the ring and welcomes Wardlow down to the ring. Schiavone announces that Wardlow opted out of the Casino Battle Royale because he’s focused on the TNT Championship. Wardlow says he doesn’t want the AEW World Title unless he’d be facing CM Punk and since that can’t happen, right now, he wants the TNT Title. Wardlow says he’ll be waiting for Punk once he returns but says it’s time for a change when it comes to the TNT Title. TNT Champion Scorpio Sky makes his way down to the ring but Ethan Page and Dan Lambert rush down and stop Sky from rushing the ring. Mark Sterling comes down and says since he’s such a ‘nice guy’, he’ll give Wardlow two options. He can face Sterling in the court of law or he can wrestle 20 members of security in an elimination match, next week.

We then see Matt and Nick Jackson of the Young Bucks, backstage. Matt says they want the AEW World Tag Team Titles and Matt and Jeff Hardy appear. Matt and Jeff say that they hear The Bucks but since they beat them at Double Or Nothing, they’re next in line. Christian Cage, alongside the AEW World Tag Team Champions, Jungle Boy and Luchasaurus of Jurassic Express appears. Cage propose The Bucks vs. The Hardys vs. Jurassic Express for the titles in a Ladder Match, next week. Jungle Boy gives Christian a dirty look but it looks like the match is agreed upon.
