Jurassic Express, Christian Cage & Bryan Danielson vs. Super Elite
Match begins with Cage and JB taking Adam to the woodshed, especially JB. The crowd is freakin’ crazy chanting “Kenny No Balls.” Danielson and Luchasaurus team up for an attack and soon enough the match spills to the outside. The Bucks hit an Indy Taker on Cage to the outside. Doc Sampson checks on him and so does Marko Stunt. They kick Stunt to boos. Bucks and Cole do their “kiss on the cheek” spot to JB which gets a big pop.
It’s not long before it’s the Danielson and Omega show as BD nails a headbutt for a near fall. He nails a tiger suplex for another near fall, but changes that to the Cattle Mutilation. Nick Jackson comes leaping off with a swanton for the save. Luchasaurus takes over and chokeslams Cole onto Kenny. He then Asai moonsaults onto Kenny nd Cole. JB nails a ranan onto Nick Jackson. Suicida by BD. Terminator leap by Kenny. Adam feigns a dive, but does a “BABY” instead. Lucha chokeslams him. Two count. He gets low blowed and the Super Elite botches a powerbomb on the big man. They attack JB and Cole hits a Panama Sunrise on JB. Bryan saves him. Kick clinic, but the finish comes when a four-man BTE-trigger ends JB.

Jon Moxley addresses the ladder match tonight. He’s been in ladder matches before and Philly is his home base. He’s got a three-month old daughter and she’s insane. So he can handle tonight.
CM Punk comes out. He asks Philly if they’re sick of the love fest yet? He’s not so he’s going to keep going. Do you like his Jordans? He comes from humble beginnings and when he became rich, he didn’t became rich monetarily, but spiritually. Thanks to places like Philly. He decides that he’s going to challenge Daniel Garcia at AEW Rampage in Philadelphia. He gives an Orange Cassidy kid his Jordans.
We cut to Arn Anderson. He’s burning a suit in a trash can. Arn wants his tie and Cody gives it to him. Cody is hesitant so Arn slaps him. He throws his pink tie into the trash can.

Earlier in the day, JR is sitting with Darby Allin. He mentions the heinous words of MJF last week and JR brings up his facepaint. Darby retells the story as to why he paints his face and its because he was in a car when his uncle died from drunk driving. Darby paints his face because of that. He makes it known that MJF hasn’t met a man like Darby Allin.

Ricky Starks is standing in the ring with the FTW. He puts over the belt’s history in Philadelphia. He thinks it’s a damn shame Brian Cage isn’t in Philly or else he’d challenge the phony to a Philadelphia Street Fight. Suddenly, out comes Cage who attacks Starks. Team Taz saves Ricky.

Darby Allin is backstage in a parking garage as Alex Marvez informs him that MJF wants to challenge him to a match next week. Of course Darby accepts. A big limo pulls up and Darby is ready to fight. He gets smacked with a chair from behind. Everybody is in ski masks as they attack Darby. It’s clearly the Pinnacle as one man certain to be MJF chokes Darby with his skateboard before walking off.
Lio Rush has a proposal for Dante Martin. Maybe he needs to “rinse, Rush and repeat.” How about he has his people call him?
Britt is happy that there is a TBS Women’s Title (she wished for a Cartoon Network belt), but now all those “bitches” who clamor to challenge her can fight for a different belt.
