Shane Taylor Promotions vs. Satoshi Kojima, Keith Lee, Athena, & Billie Starkz

Tony Khan kicks off the show to honor Antonio Inoki with Rocky Romero, Katsuyori Shibata, and some of Inoki's family. 

Billie Starkz kicks things off with Mercedes Martinez, but the Shane Taylor Promotions star immediately takes control, bringing in Diamante who launches herself in with a dropkick in the corner. Athena tags herself in and she and Starkz work together to get rid of Martinez as Athena then German suplexes Diamante. The ladies then both dive out of the ring, but as Athena brings Diamante back in she scrambles and tags in Shane Taylor. 


Athena wants to fight him but it isn't allowed so Keith Lee tags in. The two big men showcase their strength until Lee picks up the pace with a hurricanrana, but then he ends up having to deal with Lee Moriarty which allows Taylor to connect with a cheap shot. Moriarty then tags in and aggressively attacks Lee, but he manages to throw him away to tag in Satoshi Kojima. 

He mows down Moriarty and unloads machine gun chops in the corner and he then DDT's him but Diamante breaks it up. Starkz gets rid of her while Athena sacrifices herself as Martinez charges in. They then brawl while Taylor headbutts Kojima. Lee responds to that by slamming the big man down to the mat. Moriarty then gets caught with the O-Face by Athena as Lee follows up by slamming him down to the mat while Kojima nails a lariat. 


Winners: Keith Lee, Satoshi Kajima, Athena, & Billie Starkz

Josh Barnett vs. Claudio Castagnoli w/Jon Moxley

Jon Moxley makes his return following his concussion by accompanying Claudio Castagnoli to the ring as he joins the commentary team. Josh Barnett immediately brings Castagnol down to the mat, showcasing his grappling skills, but he gets hold of the ropes to break it up only for Barnett to slam him back down to the mat. 


Castagnoli takes him back up and begins focusing on the arm, stretching the former UFC star as he then begins unloading with the hammer and anvil elbows. However, Barnett gets hold of Castagnoli's leg and connects with a dragon screw to begin adding more pressure to that area, but the Blackpool Combat Club star wrestles his way out of it. Barnett then catches Castagnoli with a series of kicks to the leg, but he responds with a series of uppercuts. 

Barnett then knees him in the chest and aims for the abdominal stretch. The duo then trade forearm strikes as Barnett then launches in with a spinning heel kick as he then launches Castagnoli across the ring. Barnett tries to wrestle him to the mat again but Castagnoli reverses into the Giant Swing as he then looks for a submission that forces Barnett to reach for the ropes.


Castagnoli goes for the octopus hold, but then transitions it into a pinfall attempt which catches Barnett out and gets him the win. 

Winner: Claudio Castagnoli

Post-match the two men go face to face as Barnett gets the microphone and says he has heard a lot about Castagnoli as he's highly regarded. But experiencing it is another, and everyone is right. Barnett says they don't understand how great he is, they shake hands and Barnett says Inoki would approve of him. He's proud of Castagnoli, but says he has a long way to go, and they will do this again. Castagnoli says anytime, any place.

Luchasaurus vs. Nick Wayne

Nick Wayne comes out hot, but gets caught by Luchasaurus who launches him into the corner before he throws him across the ring with Wayne landing hard on his neck. Luchasaurus then delivers a couple of huge chops in the corner. He tries to follow it with a Chokeslam but Wayne reverses, flipping onto his feet as he connects with a couple of thrust kicks to make the big man stumble. 


However, he quickly regains authority and then connects with his Chokeslam, over the top rope and onto the ring apron for added impact. Wayne then crawls toward his mother who is at ringside, but Luchasaurus goes and attacks him further right there, stomping his arm into the barricade right in front of her. Back inside the ring the big man charges into the corner but misses, as Wayne follows it with a moonsault from the top turnbuckle which catches Luchasaurus. 

He then connects with a flurry of kicks but Wayne's World gets blocked as Luchasaurus then nails Wayne with a clubbing blow to the back of the head which takes him down. 

Winner: Luchasaurus

The Acclaimed & Billy Gunn (c) vs. TMDK (AEW World Trios Championship Match)

Bad Dude Tito starts things out with Max Caster, dominating with his power advantage as he nails the champion with a shoulder tackle before bringing in Shane Haste. He gets sent over the top as Billy Gunn tags in and drops Haste with a shoulder tackle before slamming him down. Anthony Bowens attacks Tito as Mikey Nicholls also gets thrown into an awkward spot, setting up Scissor Me Timbers as the champions then scissor inside the ring. 


With Aubrey Edwards distracted TMDK takes advantage, pulling Bowens legs from outside the ring which allows them to take over as Tito then launches himself into Bowens, following up with an exploder. TMDK works in sync with some double teamwork, but Bowens kicks out and keeps the match alive. They continue cutting off the ring, leaving Bowens isolated, and when he gets close to a tag Nicholls and Haste charge his opponents and knock them off the apron.

Bowens does manage to roll through and tag in Gunn though who starts launching TMDK members out of the ring but Tito reverses the Famouser with several kicks and then a German suplex, but Caster keeps the match alive. The duo work hard to take out The Acclaimed with Haste launching himself off Nicholls to cannonball into Bowens. However, Gunn comes back again to help out as Haste and Nicholls eat the barricade and ring post, meanwhile, Bowens hits the Arrival on Tito, with Caster then nailing the Mic Drop.


Winners (and still champions): The Acclaimed & Billy Gunn

MJF (c) vs. The Righteous (ROH World Tag Team Championship Handicap Match)

MJF admits he's not happy because there's rumors that he attacked Jay White, and he had nothing to do with it. To top it off, someone stole his mask and to make matters worse Adam Cole is hurt. He then tells The Righteous exactly what he's going to do as he marches down to the ring. Dutch tries to let MJF Bodyslam him, which he promised he would, but he's not able to.


Instead, he wants sportsmanship (a handshake), and then he pokes him in the eye. MJF then gets Dutch laying on the second rope as he pulls Vincent into the ring and teases shoving his head up Dutch's ass, but Dutch gets up and clotheslines him. Vincent then tags in and nails a knee strike and then a low-flatliner, but MJF kicks out. Dutch tags back in but he gets poked in the eye again and MJF almost gets him up for a Bodyslam but there's too much weight and Dutch crushes him. 

He powerbombs MJF as Vincent then drops onto him with a senton, but MJF kicks out. Dutch then nails a Boss Man Slam to keep the pressure on, but MJF still sticks in it. Dutch tries to use a chair and distracts the official which allows Vincent to get a chair and a wooden block, but he doesn't use it as MJF connects with a low blow. As the official tries to take away the chair MJF goes for a roll-up but Vincent kicks out and Dutch then tags in but MJF takes the fight to both of them. 


Dutch misses in the corner as MJF slams him into the top turnbuckle pad with Dutch then crashing into Vincent as MJF gets out of the way. This time he does hit the Bodyslam to the big man! This time, MJF does slam Vincent's head where the sun doesn't shine and then he follows it up with a Kangaroo Kick to both men! He follows it with the Heat Seeker to Dutch and then gets his legs on the ropes while pinning him. 

Winner: (and still champion): MJF

Eddie Kingston (c) vs. Katsuyori Shibata (ROH World & NJPW Strong Championships Match)

Eddie Kingston starts out hitting a series of chops, but they don't make much impact and Katsuyori Shibata then takes Kingston down and nails him with a huge kick. Shibata then begins focusing on the left knee of the double champion, but Kingston manages to get to the ropes to keep the match alive only for Shibata to lock in a Figure Four, and he then locks in a bow and arrow before transitioning into a headlock. 


Kingston tries to get out of it, and eventually, he makes that happen by throwing him across the ring. Kingston then connects with a series of chops which drops Shibata, but he responds with a huge big boot and a series of kicks before Shibata nails a diving dropkick in the corner. Once again, Kingston creates some distance between them by simply launching Shibata across the ring, but Shibata maintains wrist control throughout. 

He then connects several kicks to the chest of Kingston and then a huge chop before locking in the Cobra Twist which gets transitioned into the Octopus, but Kingston grabs the rope just in time. Shibata hits several punches but Kingston responds with a huge spinning back fist, with Shibata then nailing a big boot as they both go down. They then begin trading forearms and chops. 


Kingston nails the spinning back fist but Shibata walks through it only to be hit with a Northern Light's Suplex, another spinning back elbow, and then a powerbomb to get the victory. 

Winner (and still champion): Eddie Kingston

Kris Statlander (c) vs. Julia Hart (TBS Championship Match)

Straight away Kris Statlander takes the fight to Julia Hart who opts so then head out of the ring for a breather. While she hits a thrust kick upon their return, the champion immediately regains control with a couple of shoulder tackles. The TBS Champion then uses her power to launch Hart across the ring, but Hart smartly brings her back out straight away. Despite that, Statlander carries Hart on her shoulders back to the ring, but a distraction from Brody King gives Hart the opening. 


She takes the fight outside the ring, launching Statlander into the barricade repeatedly as she then bounces Statlander's head repeatedly off the mat before nailing several knee strikes to the ribs, then running up the back of Statlander to hit a senton. The champions then gets some space after a power slam, following up with a running uppercut and then a knee to the head in the corner. 

Statlander hits a Blue Thunder Bomb, but the challenger manages to kick out again. Hart then looks for the mist, but it doesn't connect and that leads to Statlander slamming her to the mat, but Hart kicks out. Out of anger the champion hits a deadlift German suplex and then heads to the top turnbuckle but Hart joins her up there. Hart launches the champion back into the ring and then looks for a moonsault, but Statlander gets up and goes for the ankle. 


However, Hart kicks Statlander away and hits a Moonsault only for the champion to stay in this with a rope break. She then locks in Hartless, but Statlander powers through, getting Hart up for a Tombstone Piledriver! She then hits Sunday Night Fever to retain. 

Winner (and still TBS Champion): Kris Statlander

The Young Bucks vs. Lucha Brothers vs. Orange Cassidy & HOOK vs. The Gunns (#1 Contendership Match for the AEW World Tag Team Championships)

Nick Jackson and Rey Fenix give a brief tease of their upcoming AEW International Championship match until Orange Cassidy tags himself in and then nails Fenix with a stiff forearm. He tries to hit Orange Punch but it's reversed as Fenix connects with a superkick, but Fenix's arm gives in and he tags out. However, The Gunns attack the Lucha Brothers, launching them into the barrier as Colten Gunn comes in with a dropkick to Cassidy.


The Young Bucks then come in and attack The Gunns with a superkick party beginning as they start taking out everyone in sight. Colten gets thrown out of the ring by Matt Jackson with Nick then running and booting him in the face for good measure. HOOK then tags in for the first time, squaring off with Matt as he then unloads on punches toward him until Mat thits the Northern Lights, but Hook responds with one of his own. Each man keeps trying to do the locomotive version but they keep reversing each other until HOOK sends him across the ring. 

Austin Gunn tags in only for Cassidy and HOOK to hit double suplexes to The Gunns. However, they turn things around with a numbers advantage on HOOK only for the Lucha Bros to begin attacking them. The Gunns regain control again though and it is just the two working away on HOOK but he tags out to Penta who starts fighting back, nailing Colten with a DDT and Austin with a backstabber.


Penta then dives out of the ring into a section of wrestlers, while HOOK tries to lock in Red Rum. Austin fights out of it until Cassidy hits the Orange Punch, but with HOOK then getting in Red Rum Nick tags in and lands on them both with a 450 Splash. Then Penta tags in and he slams down HOOK and Cassidy. The Young Bucks then work together on Penta with a superkick party and then the BTE Trigger.

Winners: The Young Bucks

Swerve Strickland vs. Adam Page

Swerve Strickland and Adam Page go back and forth early on with the fans choosing to get behind the hometown man, Strickland. "Hangman" acts aggressively in the corner, stomping away on Strickland before mocking Swerve's usual catchphrase. Strickland turns things around with an uppercut as he then dives from the top turnbuckle to attack the back of his opponent. 


Page responds with a fallaway slam, much to the fury of the AEW fanbase. He then nails a springboard lariat and a pop-up powerbomb outside the ring onto the apron, following it with another powerbomb, this time onto the barricade. Page follows it with a moonsault to the outside which he connects with as Page then nails a Liger Bomb inside the ring, but Strickland kicks out and then escapes out of the ring. 

Page continues the fight outside the ring as he continues to frustrate the fans, coming back into the ring by driving down on Strickland from the top turnbuckle. Strickland turns things around though, nailing a Flatliner and then a Brainbuster, but Page kicks out of the pinfall attempt. Page then looks for a big boot but Strickland catches it and then hits a backbreaker, but Page then attacks the hand of Strickland as he tries to go to the top turnbuckle. 


He fights back though and then stomps Page down to the mat. Strickland then hits a running kick to the face, but once again Page manages to kick out. Swerve aims for a stomp onto the ring apron but Page moves, only for Strickland to send him into the exposed metal of the turnbuckle. However, Page slams Strickland's hand into the ring post and then nails a Deadeye onto the steel stairs!

Page looks for a Bucksot Lariat but Strickland keeps blocking it, leading to big boots. Eventually, Page just opts to bite the finger, but when he goes for his finisher Strickland reverses and then stomps back Page's arm. Page gets checked on by doctors on the ring apron, but Strickland opts to nail a Stomp either way. He then goes to the top turnbuckle and hits a 450 onto the arm, but Page kicks out. 

Page then goes for a lariat but Strickland kicks the arm away only for the Cowboy to swing around and nail it anyway. Page then charges at him but Strickland side-steps him and as Page bounces off the ropes he gets suplexed. However, Strickland misses the Stomp and is hit with the Buckshot Lariat! However, the injured arm means it takes a while to get the cover, but when he does Prince Nana puts Strickland's foot on the ropes, which gets him thrown out. 


With the official distracted, Page goes for the Buckshot Lariat, but Strickland nails him in the face with Nana's diamonds. He follows that with a Night Call and then the JML Driver. 

Winner: Swerve Strickland

Wheeler Yuta vs. Ricky Starks

The two men start out with some chain wrestling until Ricky Starks mocks him which allows Wheeler Yuta to fire up and things then break down into a fight as they go back and forth with punches. Starks then takes control and goes Old School, strutting across the top rope before he drops down onto the arm as he then throws Yuta across the ring. 


The Blackpool Combat Club star begins to mount a comeback though, slamming Starks down to the mat to get a near fall of his own. Big Bill then makes his way to ringside which disracts Yuta, and that allows Starks to spike him to the mat. Starks follows it with a Powerbomb straight away, but that is only able to get another near fall as Yuta continues to hang in there. 

Starks then takes a page out of the BCC playbook with the hammer and anvil elbow strikes, but Yuta eventually catches one and starts fighting back himself until Starks levels him with a lariat. Yuta then manages to get some of his own elbow strikes before a seatbelt pinfall, but "Absolute" kicks out. Yuta then looks for a German suplex, but Starks then throws him to the ropes, and while Yuta bounces back he gets nailed with a Spear and then the Roshambo. 


Winner: Ricky Starks 

Bryan Danielson vs. Zack Sabre Jr.

The two men start out grappling straight away, but Bryan Danielson gets the best of Zack Sabre Jr. early on, sending the Englishman across the ring. They quickly take things to the mat and transition a series of holds and submissions to showcase their technical abilities. ZSJ locks in the Romero Special but Danielson gets out and then puts him in the same move, showing his own ability to do that.


ZSJ connects with the first strike of the match by hitting an uppercut, and that allows Danielson to fire back with some of his own and the two men then go back and forth with them. Sabre Jr. goads Danielson into using his injured arm and while he does it, that ends up hurting him. Sabre Jr. opts to expose that further as he stomps on the arm to inflict a lot more damage.

Sabre Jr. then begins working the fingers of the "American Dragon" with some joint manipulation, but Danielson turns things around for him, but he goes to the wall too many times and as Danielson tries it again ZSJ counters and twists Danielson's neck. He then tries to charge into Danielson but he moves and ZSJ gets set into the tree of woe as Danielson unloads some strikes. They climb up to the top turnbuckle where ZSJ begins twisting the arm until Danielson hits an avalanche butteryfly suplex. 


Danielson then unloads his traditional kicks, and then he opts to just stomp down on his head, however ZSJ almost catches him out with a pinfall attempt. Danielson then hits a running dropkick, but as he goes for it again ZSJ counters, only for Danielson to reverse that one. The two then go through a series of counters as ZSJ works Danielson's injured arm and then they just exchange slaps and kicks to the face. 

Once again, Danielson opts to stomp away on ZSJ only to be caught in an Armbar, but he gets out with a huge Busaiku Knee only for ZSJ to kick out of the pinfall. He follows that with another one, and this time the NJPW star can't respond.

Winner: Bryan Danielson

Chris Jericho & The Golden Lovers vs. Konosuke Takeshita, Will Ospreay, & Sammy Guevara

Will Ospreay and Kenny Omega kick things off as they are able to reverse and counter each other until Sammy Guevara tags in, but he eats a series of right hands, and then Chris Jericho tags in. He starts unleashing chops so Guevara tags out and Ospeay returns and he eats a set of chops as well with Omega coming back in with a double suplex alongside Jericho. All six men then end up in the ring brawling as the babyfaces come out on top, diving out to take out their opponents.


Back in the ring, Omega gets distracted by Guevara which allows Ospreay to take advantage as Konosuke Takeshita tags in for the first time as he and Omega exchange strikes until he gauges Omega's eyes. Takeshita heads out for Ospreay and the Englishman nails some chops and then a kick to the midsection as the Don Callis Family then cheats and pulls Ospreay for extra leverage on his abdominal stretch. 

Omega gets to his partners though only for Guevara to pull them away while Omega turns into a Blue Thunder Bomb. Omega begins fighting back though which allows Jericho to tag in. He hits some shoulder tackles to Guevara and then a bulldog, and this time it is his team cheating with the abdominal stretch. Kota Ibushi finally tags in and unloads with strikes as he and Jericho do the Le Sex Gods pose. 


The Golden Lovers then begin working together with a series of moves as they then dive out with moonsaults, meanwhile, Jericho nails a Lionsault to Guevara. Jericho then goes for the Walls Of Jericho but Takeshita comes from behind with a German suplex, with Omega and Ibushi getting the same treatment. Takeshita gets hit with a springboard dropkick while Ospreay also gets sent out of the ring with a hurricanrana. 

Omega then hits the ropes and dives over the top rope to take them both out, meanwhile, Guevara hits Jericho with a Spanish Fly, which he follows by launching himself out of the ring into Omega. The Don Callis Family then takes complete control, taking out each member until Guevara nails Jericho with a Codebreaker, but he fires up. He starts attacking all three men but the numbers game is too much.

Ibushi gets up and he drops Ospreay with a big right hand and then absorbs strikes from Guevara before doing the same. He and Takeshita then deliver big forearm strikes to each other including huge clotheslines. Golden Lovers try to hit the Golden Trigger but Guevara breaks it up. A flurry of moves then happens as they all take each other out with Ospreay then diving out to Omega and Ibushi. 


Inside the ring, Guevera looks to be nailed by the Judas Effect but Ospreay sacrifices himself. Jericho then hits a hurricanrana from the top turnbuckle but Ospreay distracts Aubrey Edwards so there's no pinfall. He continues to distract her as Guevara goes for the GTH but it gets countered only for Callis to come in and nail Jericho with a bat. 

Winners: The Don Callis Family

FTR (c) vs. Aussie Open (AEW World Tag Team Championship Match)

Kyle Fletcher dominates Dax Harwood early, making the most of his height advantage, but the FTR star manages to tag out only for Fletcher to take a cheap shot at him. However, Harwood reverses the favor when Fletcher goes outside to avoid Cash Wheeler only to be thrown back into the ring by Harwood who tags back in anyway. He and Mark Davis exchange huge chops and then Davis nails a senton to take control. 


Fletcher comes back in, but Harwood connects with a snap suplex, but as the match spills to the outside Aussie Open grabs an opponent each and runs them into each other. Back inside the ring and Davis remains in control with a slam and senton combination, following it with a boot to the spine of Wheeler. Davis then throws him into the top rope and then into the powerbomb by Fletcher, but Wheeler kicks out of the pinfall attempt.

Wheeler then sets Fletcher up on the top turnbuckle, dropping him back down to the mat, yet Aussie Open still stops him from tagging out. However, a backdrop allows Harwood to finally tag in, and he begins unloading on Fletcher before nailing a big clothesline. Harwood connects with a series of chops and then a big short-arm lariat. Davis eats one as well as the champion then moves on to German suplexing Fletcher.


Harwood bounces Fletcher off the ropes and into a powerbomb, but he manages to kick out. However, Aussie Open then set Wheeler up on Fletcher's shoulders as Davis dives off the top rope with a kick to the face. Harwood then suplexes Davis from the top turnbuckle as he is then hit by a splash from Wheeler. However, Fletcher launches from the other turnbuckle, pushing Harwood into them to break up the pinfall. 

Fletcher then sends Harwood out of the ring while they nail Wheeler with a Shatter Machine, but Harwood then breaks up the pinfall. The fight then heads to the ring apron where FTR hit Davis with a spiked piledriver only to be taken out by Fletcher diving out of the ring. He and Wheeler then fight on the top turnbuckle, and while he sends him down Harwood goes up and throws him, with Wheeler nailing a Super Shatter Machine. 

Winners (and still AEW World Tag Team Champions): FTR

Christian Cage (c) vs. Darby Allin (TNT Championship Two-Out-Of-Three Falls match)

Christian Cage wastes no time getting in his opponent's head by spitting on him, but the challenger doesn't lose his cool, although the champion controls the arm. Cage then unloads a series of chops, and while he looks to hit a Killswitch early on, Allin reverses it and uses Cage's turtle neck against him so he can't get out of it. 


Darby Allin 1-0 Christian Cage

Cage wastes no time immediately regaining control though, after winding up Nick Wayne's mom at ringside. Cage slams Allin's face into the mat and yanks at his nose, while he then stands on him while Allin is on the second rope. The veteran keeps the pace slow, yanking at the neck and then whiplashing him onto the top rope. However, Cage misses with a diving headbutt and then almost gets beaten after Allin hits a Code Red. 

Allin springboards and then nails a crossbody, but it's not enough to get the win and Cage then dumps Allin out of the ring. Cage sends Allin into the barricade and then heads over to Wayne's mom once again. She flirts with him but then launches water into his face as Allin then dives out of the ring into him, but as he goes for the Coffin Drop, Cage rolls out of the ring so he hits it to the outside instead. 


Allin then looks to do it again inside the ring, but this time the champion gets his knees up to reverse as he then sends Allin flying from the apron into the commentary desk. Cage then sets up the steel stairs outside the ring, and after a thumb to the eye he throws Allin back-first onto them, and after the first one doesn't quite work out he does it another two times which gains him a count-out victory for the second fall.

Darby Allin 1-1 Christian Cage

The doctor and official check on Allin, so Cage begins unpinning the ring curtain to pull away the mat and expose the wooden ring. Allin is placed onto a stretcher to be taken to the back, but Cage dives from the top turnbuckle and nails him with a Frog Splash. Cage then hits a Killswitch on the exposed wood of the ring, but somehow Allin kicks out. Cage then goes for a Spear but Allin avoids it only to then be locked into the Scorpion Deathlock. Allin gets out though and gauges Cage's eyes before hitting the Scorpion Death Drop and then a Coffin Drop on the wood, and this time Cage kicks out!

They then head to the top turnbuckle as Cage hits a sunsetflip powerbomb onto the wood, but his attempt to hit a Spear leads to him drilling the referee. However, this opens up the chance to hit a low blow. Cage gets the TNT Championship, but Nick Wayne appears and takes it from him, and then stands with Allin. However, Wayne nails Allin in the face with the title instead! 


Darby Allin 1-2 Christian Cage

Post match Cage holds Allin as Wayne beats down on his former mentor. Sting then makes his way down to the ring and he begins attacking both men until Luchasaurus appears and the three men then attack him as well. Cage then gets two chairs to hit a Con-Chair-To, but the lights go out. A video is shown of someone driving a car ... "You think you know me!" Edge is All Elite! 

He stares at his old tag team partner and asks for the chair, but instead he attacks Wayne and then nails Luchasaurus with a Spear, while Cage runs away. Wayne eats a Spear to as it is revealed Adam Copeland has arrived!
