They announced Kiera is now in the match.
Backstage, Brian Myers approached Matt Cardona. Cardona said he didn’t come here to team or fight with Myers, but he’s stuck in the middle here and has to call the match with Eddie Edwards down the middle. Myers said that he’s known Matt since he was 18 so perhaps he can call it down the middle-ish. Cardona said he wishes he could but that wouldn’t be “professional.” He walked off and Myers shook her head.

Sami Callihan hacked in and he was in Toledo, Ohio at Trey Miguel’s school. He mocked Miguel and said the rest of The Rascalz kicked him away because he has no passion. Sami found someone who was in the office and attacked him, then attacked some of the students in the school with a steel chair. He confronted Trey’s trainer and crapped on him for not having accomplished anything. He was about to smash him with a cane when another student, Sam Beale, came into the room. Callihan backed off and said he was the reason Sami was here. Sami said he wanted to have a talk with him. Sami looked at the camera and told Trey not to worry, Sam was in good hands. It came off as if they were introducing Sam as a character.
At Swinger’s Palace, a number of stars were hanging out. TJP wanted to know what the odds were for his match against Ace Austin. Austin showed up and sd it’s never good to best against the Ace. Chris Bey showed up and said the only way Austin would win is if Fulton interfered again. They got into each other’s face but Swinger said they weren’t fighting until he got odds on it and told John E. Bravo to work on that.
The Impact+ flashback was Sting vs. Rob Van Dam.
Backstage, Eric Young was speaking to Deaner. He said Deaner failed and failure leaves you open to the disease. Failure means the disease can come back. Deaner knows that this has to happen. Joe Doering took Deaner into another room and began beating the hell out of him as Young listened. Deaner crawled out of the room. Young lifted him up and said that Deaner knows this happened because Young cares. Deaner said that he knows and collapsed back to the floor.
Tony Schiavone and Tony Khan returned with the latest “paid” AEW ad, pushing Dynamite and The Revolution PPV. They pushed that Paul Wight would speak for the first time on Dynamite.
Impact Tag Team Champions The Good Brothers & FinJuice vs. XXL & Reno Scum
Finlay nailed a dropkick and tagged in Juice. Larry D tagged in and wanted Karl Anderson, who tagged in. Anderson and Gallows double-teamed D.

Finlay was worked over in the wrong corner for a long time until Gallows is tagged in. The Good Brothers went for the Magic Killers but had words with FinJuice, which led to Adam almost rolling up Karl. He kicked up and they nailed the Magic Killer for the pin.
Your winners, The Good Brothers and FinJuice!
After the match, they continued trying to upstage the other and had words in the ring.
They aired a very good video feature on Moose vs. Rich Swann at Sacrifice with Swann voicing it over, commenting that Moose has been walking around with a title that isn’t really valid. Now he has a chance to win the real World title.
Backstage, FinJuice and The Good Brothers argued over them almost losing the match. The Champs told FinJuice to go back to being young boys and covering their bags. FinJuice said the only thing they should carry are the Tag Titles. Gallows said if that’s what this is about, they can have a shot at the titles at Sacrifice. They walked off, leaving FinJuice alone. They smiled at each other, having played the champs.
Brian Myers vs. Eddie Edwards with Matt Cardona as the guest referee.
Myers controlled Edwards early until being knocked out of the ring. He grabbed a chair but Cardona admonished him. Edwards dove over Cardona onto Myers on the floor as they went to commercial. When they returned, Myers was stomping away at Edwards and cinched in a reverse chinlock. He sent Edwards into the ring but tripped him on the rebound. Myers smothered Edwards in the corner with his boot and went back to the side chinlock on the mat.
Edwards came back to use a Northern Light suplex for a two count. Edwards nailed him with a Blue Thunder Bomb for a close two count. Myers cut him off and nailed The Flatliner for a two count. Myers complained about Cardona’s count. Edwards came back with the backpack stunner for a two count as Myers put his foot across the bottom rope. Myers snapped Edwards backwards and nailed a big running lariat but Cardona called for the DQ as he realized Myers had loaded his elbow.
Your winner, by DQ, Eddie Edwards!
Myers stared at Cardona in disbelief and then walked off, pissed.
The match was fine but obviously really just a backdrop for the slow burn for Cardona vs. Myers.
Gia Miller interviewed Deonna Purrazzo, Kimber Lee and Susan. Purrazzo said that her plan tonight had to change because she expected a singles match and now it’s a Triple Threat match. She said that as a champion, changing up her game is what she does next. Kimber Lee is going to be there watching as one half of the Knockouts Tag Team Champions lose. She admits that she attacked ODB and said everyone else is going to find what happens when you mess with a Virtuosa.
