Scorpio Sky appears to be embracing a new side of himself.
Scorpio Sky believed he was in for the moment of a lifetime after he turned the opportunity to challenge Darby Allin for the TNT Championship. However, when he came up short thanks to an old-fashioned small package, he snapped and seemingly turned heel with a vicious heel hook on the champion.
TNT Championship Match
Scorpio Sky vs. Darby Allin (Champion)
Before the match begins, they show Scorpio Sky's and Darby Allin's match highlights from AEW Revolution. Darby Allin and Scorpio Sky stare each other down and fist bump each other before the match begins. Allin and Sky tie-up, but they break it up as neither guy ends up with an advantage. They tie-up again, and Allin gets control and has Sky in a wristlock. The crowd is really into the match and cheering on both opponents, and they lock-up again, with Allin getting a pin attempt in but only a two count.
Sky and Allin tie-up yet again, and Sky throws Allin up and slams him down. Darby was selling an ankle injury when he flipped over Sky. He falls into one of the corner turnbuckles, and Sky goes right at Allin and hits him with some heavy strikes. They head out to another picture-in-picture commercial with Scorpio Sky having the advantage and just beating down Allin. Sky then stretches out Darby Allin; Allin gets out of it for a split second, but then Sky has Darby in an abdominal stretch.
Sky goes for a sunset flip, but Darby stops it and goes for the pin attempt, but Sky kicks out at two. Sky then comes back at Darby with a heavy right, Sky then goes for another slam, but Allin reverses it into a stunner. Sky is back up, and Allin catches him with a Code Red after Sky hits the ropes. Darby goes for the pin, but Sky kicks out again. Sky then picks up Allin and goes for the Three Amigos, but Darby stops it until Sky hits Allin with a German suplex into the corner turnbuckle. Allin gets Sky to the outside, Allin goes for a suicide dive, but Sky counters it into a stunner.
Sky throws him back into the ring and goes for the pin, but Allin kicks out at two. Just a short time later, Allin goes for the Coffin Drop; however, Sky counters it into a pin and powerbombs Allin and goes for the pin, but Allin kicks out. Sky then goes for the brainbuster but Allin counters and gets him with a roll-up pin. After the match, Allin goes over to Sky and puts his hand out to a distraught Scorpio Sky. When Allin turns around, Sky then attacks Allin, and AEW officials have to come out and break it up. Scorpio Sky gets up and shows off a smug style look.
Winner: Darby Allin
Briefly, Scorpio appeared uncertain of himself and doubted his actions before flashing an evil grin and being outed by commentary as leaving through the heel entrance tunnel.
