The Young Bucks & SCU vs. The Acclaimed & TH2
Max Castor drops some rhymes as he Anthony Bowens enter with Jack Evans and Angelico. He even name-dropped John Cena (insert Cena “oooo” GIF).

Kaz and Bowens go at it once more before Nick Jackson head scissors TH2 and then takes out the opposition on the outside. Daniels goes for the Arabian moonsault but Bowens cuts him off.

After the match, Kaz reiterates that if he and Daniels loses a tag match together, they are done. Daniels says no matter what, they got the Bucks’ backs, that is until they challenge for those titles.
After the break, out comes Moxley. He says they may expect him to cuss up a storm about the events that transpired on December. Bitching and moaning is a waste of time and this is an unforgiving sport. All you can do is endure and take it on the chin. You plant your feet in the ground, you stare down adversity and you don’t back down an inch. What to do about Kenny Omega and his used car salesman looking friend. His initial solution would beat them to a bloody pulp with a crowbar. Tonight, the AEW Title is on the line and he’s all about upholding the honor of that belt. Rey Fenix has worked hard 13 years to get to where he is so he’s not going to meddle in that business. Mox will forever be in Kenny’s blind spot. One day he will look into the eyes of the devil and Kenny will beg for mercy when he realizes he “crossed the wrong guy.”
Chuck Taylor is with Orange Cassidy and he reveals to Dasha that Trent is out for four to six months. He’s interrupted by Miro, Kip and Penelope. Chuck then challenges Miro to a match next week, but Miro adds a stipulation: if he wins, Chuck has to become his young boy. Chuck accepts.
Jake Hager vs. Wardlow
Wardlow cuts a brief promo saying he’s going to give Hager the “war” he wants. The two lock up and reset. Jericho picks Hager to win and says that these are like two linebackers on the same team going at it. Hager takes down Wardlow but Wardlow locks in a head scissors. We get another reset. Amateur wrestling takedowns by Hager, but it doesn’t phase Wardlow who unties his hair. Wardlow hammers at Hager in the corner, but the two hit double lariats. Headlock by Hager leads to double shoulder blocks. Another, but Wardlow leapfrogs Hager and lariats him out of the ring. They clothesline one another on the outside. We head to picture-in-picture.
