Tony Schiavone welcomes Britt Baker onto the stage and asks her how she could do what she did last week to Yuka. Baker says she did what she is obligated to do and help her dental health. Baker says she did Yuka a favor and says that tooth was going to have to come out anyway. Baker says that she extracted her tooth for free, which no other dentist would do.

Baker continues to ridicule Tony for “working at Starbucks” but Tony shrugs it off and asks her for her thoughts on Riho-Rose later tonight. She says she thinks it will be an awesome match but the true amazing thing is that whoever wins will still be No. 2 compared to her. “I’m seeing a lot of confusion in these chubby Whataburger faces, so let me clear things up for you,” Baker says. “I am a role model, I have three degrees, two Plan A’s and I was the first woman signed to All Elite Wrestling. This is my division and I am the women’s division. What I did last week was a statement.” She closes her rant with a Horns Down symbol, which results in a bunch of one-fingered salutes from the crowd.

AEW Women's World Championship - Nyla Rose vs. Riho (C)

As soon as the bell sounds, Riho literally sprints to the other corner, leaping and splashing onto Rose to immediately kick off the championship contest. Rose uses her size and strength to move Riho around the ring, however the first time the champion's speed put Rose on her back, she attempts a pin.

Rose kicks out and resumes her onslaught on Riho. She tries an arrogant cover, which only gets the count of two from the referee on the pin attempt for the challenger. Riho capitalizes on a mistake by Rose. Riho uses quickness and rapid dropkicks to knock Rose out to the floor. She climbs to the top and flies off with a big splash, however Rose catches her and blasts her with a back-breaker before smashing her spine-first into the ring apron.

Nyla looks down at the ring on the floor. She reaches under the ring and pulls out a table. She sets it up outside the ring as the referee scolds her. Riho charges and runs off the table, using it as a ramp-way, and dropkicks Rose into some cords near the timekeeper at ringside.

Riho jumps on Rose and fires away with punches as we are taken to a mid-match, split-screen commercial break. We return and Rose is already controlling the action again in the ring, punishing Riho with ease throughout the majority of this contest. She gets arrogant with lazy covers on pin attempts, which the announcers keep pointing out is a glaring error.

Nyla bites the face of Riho with both on the top rope. She comes off with a flying Death Valley Driver off the top and drapes her arm across the champion for the cover. 1-2.... the champion again somehow finds a way to kick out.

The fans chant "Riho! Riho!" as she continues to try and fight back on offense. Rose goes for the One-Winged Angel, ala Kenny Omega, however Riho ends up reversing into a Snap-Dragon Suplex, also ala Omega. Riho continues to deliver big moves to Rose. She charges for the running knee strike in the corner, but Rose is nowhere to be found.

Rose goes to pick Riho up for a power bomb but almost drops her. Riho grabs the ankle of the challenger and reverses her, following up with a big Northern Lights suplex for a close near fall. The champion now climbs to the top rope as the fans break out into "This Is Awesome!" chants.

Riho comes flying off the top rope with double foot stomps and a pin attempt. Rose kicks out at one. Riho does it again. She doesn't cover her this time. She goes right back up and comes off with the double stomp again. She covers her but Rose somehow manages to get her foot on the ropes in time, forcing the referee to stop the count.

Now the champion runs right into a big-time spear from the challenger. Rose follows up with her power-bomb finisher for the pin. 1-2-3. We have a new champion.

Winner and NEW AEW Women's World Champion: Nyla Rose

- We return from commercial to see Chris Jericho backstage. "Le Champion" addresses his upcoming title challenger at AEW Revolution -- Jon Moxley. Jericho claims to have scoured the globe for a hit-man to take out Moxley after talking about being disgusted at Moxley's attack on Santana's eye last week on AEW Dynamite. The AEW World Champion announces that if Moxley gets past Santana in their "Eye for an Eye" match later tonight, he has brought in Jeff Cobb to take him on next week in singles action on AEW Dynamite. Jericho concludes his promo by telling Moxley that he will see him in hell.

MJF vs. Jungle Boy

We hear that Brandi Rhodes is still with the gang on commentary as the bell sounds to start this match off. The fans break out into dueling chants as MJF and Jungle Boy close in on each other.

The two collide, with neither man establishing a lengthy offensive run, however Jungle Boy is showing early on that MJF is going to need to take him serious if he wants to win this one. Brandi on commentary mentions Jungle Boy can make you look stupid real quick.

With that said, Jungle Boy lights up the arena by flying all over the place, knocking MJF from pilar-to-post until finally the heel establishes the first extended offensive run in the contest. MJF is bending the rules and getting scolded by the referee as he continues to use little tactics and heel antics to establish the lead in the match.

We are shown Arn Anderson watching on from backstage as he continues to scout MJF on behalf of Cody leading up to their showdown at AEW Revolution. MJF keeps Jungle Boy laid out on the floor and arrogantly rolls back into the ring to let the referee count him out.

As she begins her count, J.R. takes us to a mid-match, split-screen commercial break as Jungle Boy approaches the ring, where it appears the action will continue.

We're back from the break and MJF is still in control, however Jungle Boy is starting to show signs of life. He fights his way back into the contest after knocking MJF to the floor and hitting three consecutive dives from inside the ring, finishing with a flip over the top onto MJF on the third-and-final dive.

Back in the ring, Jungle Boy follows up with some other high-impact offense. The announcers keep selling the lower back injury of Jungle Boy. MJF turns the tables on Jungle Boy in the corner, and now he is comfortably in control of the contest once again.

MJF continues to deliver punishment to the son of the late actor Luke Perry before stopping to shout -- which is audibly heard on the television broadcast -- to Brandi Rhodes about how she can still leave Cody and "be with a real man." This angers Jim Ross, who loses his cool and shouts for him to "shut up" and "shut up you jerk!" on commentary.

Meanwhile Wardlow makes his way to ringside after being told to head to the backstage to let MJF go this one alone. He hands MJF a set of brass knuckles when the referee is out of position, and blasts Jungle Boy with them. He hits the Double-Cross finisher and covers him for the 1-2-3. MJF wins and moves on to Atlanta, as J.R. informs us on the broadcast.

Winner: MJF

Once the match ends, MJF calls for Wardlow to continue his beat down of Jungle Boy to add insult to injury. As he goes to do so, out comes the Jurassic Express pals of Jungle Boy to even up the numbers game.

- We head to a commercial with J.R. plugging next week's steel cage match at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta, GA.

- We return from the break to a black-and-white vignette that shows "The Bastard" PAC addressing Kenny Omega and all of his problems. He claims they are all because of him, and that he is "the god damn best and he knows the depth of his conviction." PAC claims Omega fears him, as he "f*cking should be!" He tells him he can't duck-or-dodge him for long as soon he'll have over 40 minutes to punish him.
