Strickland tags in, but Caster is back up on his feet. They square off, and Swerve takes control. Caster drops him with a back suplex. Lee lifts Caster on his shoulders and tosses him to Strickland, who hits a powerbomb for a two count. Bowens drags Caster to the outline, and Strickland dives onto him.

Winners and new AEW World Tag Team Champions: The Acclaimed

The Acclaimed and Billy Gunn scissor each other.

FTR is standing backstage, and Cash Wheeler says all four guys killed it. He says FTR has been the top-ranked team since April, so they want a title shot. The Gunns interrupt and wonder if FTR is losing their momentum. They say they’re more talented version of FTR.

Wheeler Yuta is on the ramp with Tony Schiavone. He is asked about the title match between Bryan Danielson and Jon Moxley. MJF interrupts and gets a big pop. He calls the fans his devil-worshippers. MJF turns to Yuta and says he’ll never get a reaction like that. He says Yuta is “mid”, whereas he’s a “god” to these people. MJF says he’s a generational talent. Yuta notes that he has more catchphrases than he has friends, and he’s the king of low-hanging fruit. Yuta compliments MJF’s fiancée and calls MJF a “spineless, worthless piece of human garbage.” Yuta says MJF’s fiancée will walk out on him, much like MJF walked out on AEW. MJF wishes Danielson and Moxley well; he says they’re fighting to lose the world title to him. He says Yuta can still get advice from his mentors; he references Danielson’s injuries and Regal’s past with substance abuse. MJF drops Schiavone with a cheap shot, and Yuta attacks him. W. Morrissey chokes Yuta from behind, and MJF lays him out.

Jade Cargill is backstage, and Diamante interrupts. She introduces Trina as her backup for AEW Rampage.
