- Locker room, Hardy is the The Young Bucks, Kenny Omega, and Hangman Page. Page ends up leaving because he's got stuff to drink. Omega is heading out, too, since he doesn't have a match and wishes the guys good luck. Nick and Matt asks if they can get a different version of him tonight. First it's his Team Xtreme look, then he goes way back to his old gimmick to somewhat match Matt and Nick's look.
Matt Hardy and The Young Bucks vs. Joey Janela and Private Party
Young Bucks get things going and they keep Janela down. Hardy tags in, hits a clothesline, tags Nick back in, drops to the floor and Nick leaps off his back for a strike on Janela.

Rule number three: Don't hurt the role model. She says her injury was a conspiracy. Baker says last week's injury came from a 3-on-1 calculated attack. Baker says without her there's no women's division. Baker then goes over why each person is a conspirator: Statlander being an alien is a "crock of s---," Shida already broke her nose and uses a weapon, and Nyla Rose could have easily guided herself away from her fragile knee, as she's flown in the air multiple times. Baker then has a board brought out, tying all of those included in what happened to her. She believes Aubrey Edwards is the brains behind it all. Says every time she's injured Aubrey was there. Baker says she'll be back at All Out on September 5.
- Backstage, Chris Jericho and the Inner Circle talk with Alex Marvez. He says the pep rally will be the best thing ever, as he gloats about it, Orange Cassidy strolls by in the background. Jericho says, "Did he just do that?" Jericho smiles and seems like he's got an idea.

In the crowd, we see Dustin Rhodes, Brandi Rhodes, and QT Marshall (who is talking with The Bunny, or maybe Allie, again?). Cody talks about how he could outwork anyone and says he will be ready every week to defend the title. Saying it will be an open challenge as long as he's champion. Cody talks about how we're still in a pandemic era of wrestling, says it's his obligation to give everyone his best when they give AEW two hours a week. He thanks everyone and heads off.

- Earlier today, MJF talks about how great he is and being undefeated for over a year. He can't believe he hasn't received a title shot yet, maybe someone in the AEW office doesn't like him very much. MJF says once he heard about the Battle Royal, he wanted to make sure Cody has competition. MJF says he'll have Wardlow out there as his insurance policy, and when it's the two of them Wardlow knows what to do. Wardlow says, "but..." and MJF yells "but nothing!" getting in his face. He then smiles and says it was a rib, then walks away.
Battle Royal (Winner gets a shot at the AEW TNT Championship on next week's show)
MJF and Wardlow get an entrance as we go to break. A bunch of other wrestlers are in the ring as we come back. Billy Gunn's music hits and he heads from ringside into the ring. Orange Cassidy heads out as the bell rings for the match. He gets to the stage and he gets blindsided by Santana and Ortiz with that loaded sock.
