Tony Khan’s Big Announcement(s)
We get to the top of the entrance stage where AEW and ROH President Tony Khan is introduced. Out he comes and he says it’s time for his huge announcement.
He brings out the President of New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW). The NJPW executive makes his way out but before he can say anything, we see Adam Cole appear on the big screen.

Cargill makes it clear that she is the real deal and vows to make Shafir number 30 on her undefeated hit-list on “her” show this Friday night. She walks off to end the segment
Wardlow vs The Butcher
Before Wardlow comes out, MJF & Shawn Spears are in the crowd with some popcorn. Wardlow is a pig, and he’s not allowed to have music. Warlow comes out and he’s still wearing the handcuffs.
We’re trading shoulder blocks and elbows to start. Commentary reminds us that Butcher isn’t here to win, he’s here to injured. Wardlow runs through a clothesline and delivers three shoulder blocks as Butcher rolls outside. Wardlow follows Butcher outside, but Butcher runs him into the railing and delivers several clotheslines.
Back drop by Butcher on the apron. Back inside, powerbomb by Butcher! Butcher stumbles a bit but it came off like a Batista Bomb so no harm, no foul. One count! No more games! Powerbomby Symphony by Wardlow! One! Two! Three! Four! Wardlow is making eye contract with MJF! This one’s over.

Owen Hart Foundation Tournament Qualifier
Kyle O’Reilly vs. Jungle Boy
The bell sounds and we’re off-and-running with our first of two Owen Hart Foundation Tournament qualifying matches scheduled for tonight’s show.
Also scheduled is hometown favorite — Pittsburgh native Dr. Britt Baker, D.M.D., as she will compete in an Owen Hart Foundation Women’s Tournament Qualifying match later in the evening against Danielle Kamela.
We see Jungle Boy jump off to an early offensive lead as this one gets underway. After enjoying some control of the action for the first minute or so, the two trade leads.
As the match progresses and begins to take shape, we see O’Reilly settle into the offensive driver’s seat just as we head to a mid-match commercial break as the action continues.
When we return from the break, business really starts to pick up in the ring as Jungle Boy starts fighting from underneath for a big comeback.
He ends up taking over control of the action, sending O’Reilly out to the floor. He then hits the ropes and builds up a full head of steam before diving through the ropes and splashing onto O’Reilly in the process.
Back in the ring a few moments later, we see Jungle Boy hit an awesome tornado DDT that he holds onto. He stands up and jumps guard for a guillotine choke attempt that looked dangerous for O’Reilly for a moment.
Ultimately, O’Reilly escapes the hold, however he is still dead center in the thick of a predicament that he has found himself in with half of the AEW World Tag-Team Champions.
Jungle Boy ends up hanging O’Reilly upside down in the tree of woe. He runs around the ring and leaps, blasting him while in the tree of woe in the upside down position with a big dropkick.
We see Jungle Boy look to follow that up with his Snare Trap finisher, however O’Reilly avoids it and starts to show signs of life.
He fights back for the first time since we returned from the break. He gets some offensive momentum going, however Jungle Boy ends up cutting it short and locking him in his Snare Trap submission hold.
O’Reilly manages to hang on and crawl to the ring ropes, where he grabs on to them, which forces the referee to break up the hold.
The two head up to the top-rope and we see a crazy high spot unfold, which favors O’Reilly. The reDRagon member then dumps Jungle Boy on his head. Moments later he drops a knee on the Pillar of AEW for the pin fall victory.
With the win, Kyle O’Reilly joins Samoa Joe in the current participant field for the men’s Owen Hart Foundation Tournament.
Winner and ADVANCING to the Owen Hart Foundation Tournament: Kyle O’Reilly
MJF Acquires “The Murderhawk Monster” In Quest To Stick It To Wardlow
We shoot backstage after the match to what Tony Schiavone calls an “animated MJF.” We see MJF with Shawn Spears standing backstage with Alex Marvez.
MJF is upset about Wardlow’s victory earlier tonight but has another plan for next week. He introduces Jake “The Snake” Roberts, whom he hands an envelope of cash to.
He talks about how he doesn’t chase gold and girls, he chases the thing that makes the world go around — money.
With that said, in walks Lance Archer. It looks like MJF has acquired the services of “The Murderhawk Monster” for his quest of getting payback on Wardlow.
Hook vs. Anthony Henry
The bell sounds and we’re off-and-running with this one. Hook runs through Henry in a match that lasted all of 30 seconds at best. He got the easy win while Danhausen was in the middle of trying to distract him.
As always, Hook can’t be phased by — well, anything — and he easily picks up the victory as he intended using the Red Rum.
After The Match: Danhausen Wants To Fight Hook
Once the match wraps up, we hear Danhausen get on the microphone and issue a formal challenge to Hook. He says he is ready to fight him, however Hook merely walks past him like nothing happened.
– Frankie Kazarian looks to call out Sammy Guevara, but Scorpio Sky interrupts. He says five years ago they formed SCU, but now he needs one more favor. He wants Frankie to wait just a little bit longer, he promises Frankie will get the first shot. Kazarian says he has always had his back, and he always will.
– Sammy Guevara and Tay Conti are in the ring to a chorus of boos.He feels right, he’s a three time champion and with the love of his life. He’s going to give fans his everything, because they deserve it, those who cheer. The rest who turned their back, why? Because Conti is better looking than theirs?
Sky then appears and asks if that’s how it’s going to go, he’s screwing the fans who got him here watching his stupid vlogs. Page tells him to shut up, as nobody came here to listen to him talk. The only reason they’re not beating him up right now, is because Dan Lambert says tonight is about business.
Lambert Sammy risks it all to earn the respect of the fans, but he chose to throw it away acting like a high school douchebag. He says Sammy either gives Sky a rematch, or he will send them down to give him the pounding his girlfriend dreams about. Sammy says he will give him the rematch if they agree to the mixed tag team title bout. They agree, and Sammy then claims it’ll be a ladder match.
– The latest House Of Black vignette airs. Buddy says they have changed the narrative. Aleister says they’re owed a debt, so next week the sun dies.
Owen Hart Foundation Women’s Tournament Qualifier
Dr. Britt Baker, D.M.D. vs. Danielle Kamela
Both women are in the ring, the bell sounds and we’re off-and-running with this qualifying bout in the women’s installment of the Owen Hart Cup tourney.
We see Baker jump off to an early offensive lead. On that note, we head to a mid-match, picture-in-picture commercial break as the action continues.
As we settle back in from the break, we see Kamela in full control of the action, dominating Baker with ease in the middle of the ring.
Kamela has Baker down and has a yellow Pittsburgh Steelers “terrible towel” wrapped around her face and throat.
The fans rally behind Baker for moral support and it has an affect on the action, as she gets back to a vertical base and escapes the clutches of Danielle.
Now we see Baker trading shots wildly with Kamela. She eventually fights her way back into the offensive leader.
She hits a big neck-breaker that plants Kamela into the mat. She follows that up with a Stomp and then signals to the crowd that this one is about to be over.
She gets a special glove to put on for her Lockjaw finisher. She sides on a Pittsburgh Steelers yellow glove and secures her Lockjaw finisher on Kamela. Kamela quickly gives up and this one is over.
Winner and ADVANCING to the Owen Hart Foundation Women’s Tournament: Dr. Britt Baker, D.M.D.
After the match, Britt Baker takes shots at Jade Cargill, Ruby Soho, and Toni Storm. She says if Toni thought cake in the face was bad, she’s gonna want to leave this company too once Jamie Hayter mops the floor with her.
Andrade El Idolo vs. Darby Allin
The bell sounds and we’re off-and-running with this one. Darby is slow heading to the ring, which the commentators point out. As soon as the bell sounds, we see Darby’s skateboard handed through the ring ropes.
Darby ends up getting his hands on it instead of Andrade, who was the intended recipient from The Blade — a member of the A.F.O.
He whacks Andrade with said-skateboard and then the violence level turns up a few notches right out of the gate. Darby ends up on the defensive soon after this, as the action spills to the ringside area.
While duking it out on the floor, we see Darby get launched into the steel ring barricade before Andrade, who now has possession of the aforementioned skateboard, blasts Darby with it a few times.
As the brawl continues throughout the crowd, a “fan” seated in front of The Blade and other A.F.O. members stands up and removes a mask — revealing himself to be none other than “The Icon” Sting.
Sting beats down The Blade and anyone else from the A.F.O. on hand, such as Marq Quen. Sting handles them with ease until Andrade gets involved. From there, Quen manages to get a steel chair, which he whacks “The Icon” with from behind.
Sting no-sells it and just stands up straight, looking out to the sea of fans in the Pittsburgh venue.
He beats Marq Quen down and then climbs up as the crowd goes berzerk — and launches himself onto the A.F.O. members below. After that crazy spot from the old-timer, we head to a mid-match commercial break.
We return from the break to see complete chaos is still unfolding in various parts of the arena, with some A.F.O. members fighting in the crowd and at ringside. Meanwhile, Andrade and Darby are finally duking it out near the coffin that the winner must enclose the loser in.
After Andrade is rocked and then distracted while standing in the coffin outside of the ring, we see Darby build up a full head of steam from inside the ring. He then connects with a tope suicida through the ropes, splashing onto Andrade while he was standing in the coffin. This knocks Andrade down into the coffin.
Out comes Jose The Assistant with some thumbtacks. The Hardy Boyz end up coming out as well. Darby ends up planting Andrade on them and slams the coffin door closed for the victory.
Winner: Darby Allin
His theme plays and he celebrates the win, soaking up the love from the Pittsburgh fans as The Hardy Boyz come out on top of the entrance stage and show Darby some love as well. That’s how this week’s show goes off the air.
