Winner: Orange Cassidy
After the match, the two men shake hands before Cassidy puts his sunglasses on Shibata.
We head backstage to Toni Storm and Lexy Nair. Nair asks her about her upcoming match against Jamie Hayter at Full Gear and Storm asks what happened to ‘nice girl she was home with for the pandemic.’ She tells her that she’ll have to take responsibility for the decisions she’s currently making.
Back from the break, we head backstage to Lexy Nair and Blackpool Combat Club. Nair asks what their issues with Chris Jericho are and Claudio Castagnoli says that he draws the line when Jericho attacks non-wrestlers such as Ian Riccaboni. He says that since he hasn’t gotten his ROH World Championship Match yet, Jericho has to look no further if he wants to beat all former ROH Champions. Danielson reiterates Castagnoli’s point for himself and says he will stomp his head in. William Regal tells Jericho to make his choice.
Back at ringside, Britt Baker and Jamie Hayter head down. Skye Blue and Madison Rayne are already waiting in the ring.

She goes for a pin, but Blue breaks it up. Baker hits a ripcord elbow, followed by a thrust kick. Rayne fires back with a step-up enziguri, but Hayter manages to pull out a ripcord lariat for the win.
Winners: Britt Baker and Jamie Hayter
After the match, Britt Baker grabs a mic and says they will define what being a Women’s Champion is when Hayer takes the title from Toni Storm at Full Gear. Storm’s music hits and she takes out Baker. She charges at Hayter and the two women brawl in the center of the ring. Baker grabs the AEW Interim Women’s Championship and hits Storm in the head with it. She gives Hayter the title and she holds it up.
We head backstage to Chris Jericho, Sammy Guevara and Tony Schiavone. Schiavone asks Jericho to stop attacking commentators and Jericho says there are no guarantees. Schiavone asks about Regal’s comments from earlier and Jericho says that a less honorable man would say neither, but since he is honorable, he chooses both. He says that he thinks that the Blackpool Combat Club can’t stand one another, then asks what would happen if he brought in one of his guys: Guevara. He challenges Castagnoli and Danielson to a Fatal Four-Way and tells Guevara that when the two are left standing, he knows Guevara will do the right thing.
We Hear From Ricky Starks
Starks says that he hears fans clammoring to see him on television and tells fans that they’ve always had his back because they know he’s good. He says that he likes them too and says he’s put in the work since day one. He says maybe he has the answer and announces he will be entering himself into the AEW World Championship Eliminator Tournament. He says he’s the guy that will hold AEW up on his bare back. He says it will start at Full Gear when he walks out as the new number one contender for the AEW World Championship. He says that he will either go on to face Jon Moxley or MJF and says that he will win because he is “Absolute” Ricky Starks.
Back from the break, we head backstage to Tony Schiavone and Sammy Guevara. He says the ROH World Championship will stay in the JAS after Full Gear and says he has been dreaming about beating Bryan Danielson for a long time and says they still have unfinished. He then challenges him to a 2 Out Of 3 Falls Match on next week’s “Dynamite”.
WarJoe vs. The Gates Of Agony
The bell sounds and we’re off-and-running with this one. We see WarJoe dominate the offense in the early goings but as Joe tags in and starts finding himself on the defensive, we head to a mid-match commercial break.
As we settle back in from the break, we see WarJoe still in the defensive position. They eventually shift the momentum into their favor and despite some interference attempts from Prince NaNa, we see Wardlow hit his Powerbomb Symphony for the pin fall victory.
Once the match wraps up, we hear the familiar sounds of Powerhouse Hobbs’ theme. He makes his way out where he and Wardlow stare each other down as this week’s show goes off the air on that note. Thanks for joining us!
