– Behind the scenes, Tony Schiavone joins Ricky Starks and Powerhouse Hobbs for their reaction to their tag team title match. Starks says they’re not afraid, they want the match. Jurassic Express arrives. Jungle Boy says he had a week to think about their challenge. Likes him. Jungle says Starks is a feisty dude, why not spice things up and? give him a shot at the FTW title for the tag team title match† Christian Cage says Starks never defends his title. Starks says he’s going to show Starks what a real man is next week.

Strickland says Starks deserved a shot at the Tag Team titles, but they beat them. They’re not done with Starks and Hobbs yet. Lee says it’s doubtful to have used Taz against them. In the end, they will have no choice but to face their glory.
– Wardlow arrives in the ring with the guards for his mystery match. MJF and Shawn Spears arrive on the scene. MJF says he’d love to say he’s happy to be back in Maryland, but that would be a lie. MJF says he’s going to watch the game backstage tonight because he won’t be able to watch the pigs tonight. But Wardlow should fear the coming giant, William Morrissey (Big Cass).
Wardlow vs W. Morrissey
At the end of the fight, Wardlow pushes Morrissey out of the corner and Moonsaults him! Wardlow continues with his Powerbomb for the count of three.
– After the fight, guards enter the ring. Wardlow hits all the agents one by one! He grabs a cop and throws it to everyone else at the bottom of the ring. Wardlow picks up the mic and says he will never stop until he gets his hands on MJF and releases him from his contract. It doesn’t matter how big they are. MJF says Wardlow wants to get him. How would Wardlow feel if the two had a match? If Wardlow wins, he will release him from his contract. Do people want to see the game? The public approves. MJF says the match will take place, but! But he has some conditions, he will give his conditions when signing a contract. This contract signing will not take place in a mess like here tonight. The signing will take place in the most magical place in the world, Long Island New York (next week in Dynamite).
– Backstage, Tony Schiavone is with Soho, Storm, Baker and Hayter for their commentary on their match on Rampage. Baker says that every page of the story has Baker’s name on it, so it’s only fitting that she kicks off the story with a first women’s contest on Rampage. Soho says Toni Storm can’t wait to meet her at the Owen Hart Tournament. They’re going to humble them on Friday.
– Back, Schiavone is in the ring introducing us to the champion Adam Hangman Page who comes in the ring. Schiavone asks Page to comment on his match against CM Punk for Double or Nothing 2022. Page says it would be easy to come here and say how much respect he has for Punk. That he can’t wait to shake his hand and take on the best in the world at Double or Nothing. And it would be very easy to say that he can’t wait to play a historic game. It would be easy, but it’s not going to happen. At Double or Nothing there is no handshake. He will destroy CM Punk! Page looks at a fan in Punk’s t-shirt and tells him he’s going to ask for money back after Double or Nothing. He has to deliver the bad news, but he has to say that our beloved CM Punk isn’t here tonight. Page says Punk is shooting a new TV show. But wherever CM Punk is, he must tell him that he is going to humiliate him. Punk wanted a fight, he’ll have it, the fight of his life.
– We present a video about Konosuke Takeshita that will be on Rampage on Friday.
– Behind the scenes we find Satman Singh, Sonjay Dutt and Jay Lethal. Sonjay Dutt says AEW is rolling out the red carpet again for a Japanese wrestler, but where is the red carpet for Singh or Lethal. Lethal was the longest reigning ROH champion. Lethal says he can’t wait to prove to AEW that they are wrong by giving Konosuke Takeshita the red carpet and will show it by confronting him on Rampage on Friday.

The two blows fall, Santana manages to create a Cutter and cover it, but Jericho resists. Jericho wants help with his cane, but Ortiz takes him with him. Santana takes the opportunity to pack a punch and covers him, but Jericho still resists. Santana gives him a cannonball.

– Brian Pillman Jr is in the ring with Brian Pillman Jr and Julia Hart. Pillman Jr says he wants to talk about their meeting with the House of Black a few months ago. At the same time Julia Hart was poisoned. The hardest moment was losing for what he had worked for. You have to attack every day with enthusiasm, but he lost that thought. They lost their enthusiasm and the House of Black took the opportunity to separate them. But tonight is a new day and he is very excited. He is eager to keep their group together. The lights go out and come on, the House of Black enters the ring. Varsity Blonds are circled. Malakai Black, Buddy Mathews and Brody King attack them.

Black removes the blindfold from Julia’s eye and pushes her to the ground. The Death Triangle is coming to the ring to chase them away.

– It has been revealed that Allin will face Jeff Hardy in the Owen Hart tournament that kicks off. Behind the scenes, Darby Allin says the match was written by himself and Jeff. The game will be special.
– Returning, the champion Thunder Rosa arrives on the scene. Rosa says everyone has a story to tell. His story is full of good and bad people. She tells about her success stories. Today she is the champion and she fought to remain champion against Nyla Rose. By coming here she wanted to take the women’s department to the next level. She carried that weight on her shoulders for a long time and was able to become who she is today and take the division to the next level. She wants to face the best. Before she was Thunder Rosa, she had come a long way to meet a single female wrestler, one who inspired her to become her best version. So she introduces us to contender number one. Serena Deed arrives on the scene. Deeb says it’s been a long time. She saw Thunder Rosa fight to get to the top, so she respects Rosa. She really thinks the two can make this division the best in the world. But for that to happen, the best wrestler in the world has to be the champion. Rosa says the title seems to show she’s the best. Deeb says the title seems to suggest it. But everyone knows and thinks she’s on another level. It’s time for her to give the title the title to show it. Rosa asks if she wants to bet on the title. Deeb says she will bet Rosa will have the shortest reign in AEW history as she will take her title at Double or Nothing. They’re going to see each other in Vegas.
