Sky says Ben Carter is going to have a bright future. Sky continues that he’s still going after the AEW TNT Championship though. Matt Sydal suddenly shows up and gives some props to Sky. Sky then hypes up Sydal a bit before his match, and does (I think) an impression of Ric Flair. Sydal heads off for his match against Shawn Spears (who he eliminated in the Casino Battle Royale at All Out).
