- Earlier today, AEW World Champion Jon Moxley says when he was younger he struggled with a lot of demons. Moxley says he'd go to the ring and it was like he's wrestling ghosts. People who cared about him would often try to talk him out of doing dangerous things. Looking back, some of those things he'd change, some things he wouldn't. He gets why Darby Allin wants his title. Moxley says in a weird twist, now he's the one trying to advocate for safety and common sense. Moxley says Allin is his favorite guy in AEW and doesn't want to be the one that ends Allin's career, but once he signed the contract, he becomes just like everyone else. Moxley says when it's time to stay down, just stay down. "I know you're not going to listen though...because I wouldn't."

- At MJF's campaign headquarters, MJF gives an update about his campaign. MJF says they are shipping posters out all over the world. MJF gets some gum from one of his workers, he hates it and fires them. Lee then is called out for hanging up a poster that's not level. Nina is asked about the poll, which MJF is leading over Moxley. Someone behind the camera asks MJF what if Allin wins the title tonight. "Oh, the 125 lbs. emo kid? Yeah, that would really suck to wrestle him..." MJF heads off.
- Matt Hardy in the ring, talks about having a blast with being able to show off all his personas, but he listens to his audience (much like AEW does as a whole). Hardy says he wants to focus on being him though on-screen. Off-screen he wants to keep helping others and brings up Private Party. He then says he tried to do the same with Sammy Guevara and told him to get away from Chris Jericho. Guevara didn't listen though. Hardy says Guevara once climbed out from under the ring and attacked Hardy, so Hardy decided to give it back to him.

- Chris Jericho and Orange Cassidy debate starts up and Eric Bischoff is the moderator. He sits at a table on the stage, and says he has five different questions for tonight's debate, neither wrestler have seen the questions. Cassidy is announced first, then Jericho, they will be in the ring for the debate. Jericho comes to the ring in a dark suit, but Jake Hager also brings out the white jacket Cassidy destroyed with all that orange juice. Jericho is asked why does Jericho and Cassidy hate each other so much? Jericho thanks Cassidy for dressing for the occasions (he's in his usual gear). Cassidy then pulls out a clip-on tie and attaches it. Jericho then says this is why he hates Cassidy, says he's a flash in the pan and a nobody. Cassidy is asked for his response. Cassidy doesn't say anything. Back to Jericho: "Who is the better wrestler? Who is the biggest star?" Jericho says it's pretty obvious what the answer is to that and rips Cassidy some more. Cassidy doesn't respond
The third question is asked about rising sea levels and the dangers it has to the worlds. Cassidy doesn't say anything first, Jericho says to move on. Cassidy then rattles off a ton of facts about rising sea levels while Jericho looks on in astomnishment. Next question is asked why Cassidy is so popular. Jericho calls Cassidy a pimple on the ass of pro wrestling, says fans at home can related to a lazy, entitled, nobody. Jericho then says next week he wants $7,000 for his damaged jacket, then he's going to leave AEW and go back to being a juice guy at a mall. The last question is why this match means so much to both guys. Jericho goes to talk, but Cassidy tells him to shut up. Cassidy says he doesn't care about Jericho, but he does care about their match next week. Cassidy says it's the biggest match of of his life, and the biggest of Jericho.
