Last night an Undisputed AEW World Champion was crowned as CM Punk collided with Jon Moxley. Also, United Empire’s Will Ospreay and Aussie Open took on Death Triangle in the quarter-finals of the AEW Trios Tournament.
Chris Jericho promo-
Jericho took to the ring to get an answer after last week’s events involving Daniel Garcia and his actions after the gruelling 2-out-of-3 falls match with Bryan Danielson.
Garcia and Jericho would come face-to-face as the Dragon Slayer looked conflicted about how he was feeling as fans chanted, “you’re a wrestler”.
As Jericho pushed for answers, they were confronted by Bryan Danielson, who spoke his case about the respect he has for Garcia and their “wrestling” match.
Jericho continued to push that Garcia was a “sports entertainer”, causing Garcia to push him to the floor. An amused Bryan Danielson taunted Jericho, causing the two to exchange heated words before laying out a challenge for All Out.
Jay Lethal def Dax Harwood-
Both men demonstrated their technical abillities and hard-hitting styles, with neither one of them finding a breakthrough in the opening moments.
A series of German suplexes shifted the pace into Dax’s favour as he continued to ground Lethal.
As the match progressed, Lethal gained some offence after targetting the knee of Dax.
A pivotal moment saw Harwood hit the sling-shot liger bomb, but it wouldn’t be enough as interference from Sonjay Dutt saw Lethal pick up the roll-up victory.
Post-match saw Sonjay Dutt take to the mic and reveal that FTR and Wardlow wouldn’t be facing Lethal, Singh and Dutt, but they would be facing Lethal and The Motor City Machine Guns at All Out.
Colten Gunn def Billy Gunn-
After the betrayal from The Gunns last week, it set up the first ever father vs son match on AEW.
Billy Gunn kept control of Colten for most of the match, preventing any offence Colten tried to make.
The turning point of the match came when Billy saw red and attacked Colten in the corner before being dragged away and reminded by an irate referee Aubrey Edwards who iterated that he was still his son.
The closing moments of the match saw the referee distracted by Austin and Stokely, who attacked The Acclaimed on the outside, allowing Colten to hit the low blow and hit the Colt 45, picking up the win over his dad.
Post-match saw The Gunns exit the ring after being confronted by the AEW World Tag Team Champions Swerve In Our Glory.
Dr Britt Baker D.M.D def KiLynn King-
The beginning of the match saw King take control, surprising Baker with a surprise shotgun dropkick off the top rope.
King’s momentum wouldn’t last long after Baker smashed King’s face into the turnbuckle with a slick STO.
Baker would follow up with the stomp before locking in the Lockjaw to pick up the victory.
Jon Moxley (c) def CM Punk (c)- Undisputed AEW World Championship
Moxley and Punk exchanged strikes from the get-go, but an opening would come for the Interim World Champion after CM Punk hit a head kick which seemingly re-injured his surgically repaired foot.
Moxley would drive a series of elbows into the shoulder and jaw of Punk before hitting him with two Deathriders, picking up a statement victory and being crowned the Undisputed AEW World Champion and the first 2x AEW World Champion.
Ricky Starks promo-
Starks cut a passionate promo calling out Powerhouse Hobbs and reminiscing on their history. Ricky closed the segment by challenging him to a match at the upcoming All Out Pay-Per-View.
Will Ospreay and Aussie Open def Death Triangle-
Ospreay and Fenix left fans in awe after showcasing their incredible athleticism and high-flying ability to evade each other’s strikes and come to a stalemate.
Death Triangle would gain the upper hand and take out all three men on the outside with a synergetic dive the outside.
Ospreay would fire back with some aerial offence of his own, but it wouldn’t stop him from coming face to face with fellow Brit Pac, who utilised the hot tag to take out Aussie Open and Ospreay.
The turning point of the match saw Pac confront Kip Sabian on the outside, and as Pac removed the box, the man underneath wasn’t Kip. The All-Atlantic champion was blindsided by Sabian, who dropped him on the outside before leaving through the crowd.
Aussie Open and Ospreay took advantage of the numbers game, and hit a series of trios moves, ended by an assisted Oz-Cutter, which saw Ospreay and Aussie Open advance to the semi-finals next week to take on The ELITE.
Post-match saw The ELITE emerge to the stage, previewing what will be a mouth-watering contest.
