MATCH 1

The Young Bucks & SCU vs. The Acclaimed & TH2

Max Castor drops some rhymes as he Anthony Bowens enter with Jack Evans and Angelico. He even name-dropped John Cena (insert Cena “oooo” GIF). JR reveals that Snoop Dogg is going to accompany Cody to the ring tonight. Daniels slugs Castor and a brawl ensues. Kaz and Bowens go at it once more before Nick Jackson head scissors TH2 and then takes out the opposition on the outside. Daniels goes for the Arabian moonsault but Bowens cuts him off.

Go for a Meltzer Driver, but it gets initially thwarted. They look to go for it again, but Nick diverts himself and dives onto people on the outside. Instead, CD delivers a BME do finish the Meltzer Driver for the win.

WINNERS: SCU & The Young Bucks

After the match, Kaz reiterates that if he and Daniels loses a tag match together, they are done. Daniels says no matter what, they got the Bucks’ backs, that is until they challenge for those titles.

After the break, out comes Moxley. He says they may expect him to cuss up a storm about the events that transpired on December. Bitching and moaning is a waste of time and this is an unforgiving sport. All you can do is endure and take it on the chin. You plant your feet in the ground, you stare down adversity and you don’t back down an inch. What to do about Kenny Omega and his used car salesman looking friend. His initial solution would beat them to a bloody pulp with a crowbar. Tonight, the AEW Title is on the line and he’s all about upholding the honor of that belt. Rey Fenix has worked hard 13 years to get to where he is so he’s not going to meddle in that business. Mox will forever be in Kenny’s blind spot.  One day he will look into the eyes of the devil and Kenny will beg for mercy when he realizes he “crossed the wrong guy.”

Chuck Taylor is with Orange  Cassidy and he reveals to Dasha that Trent is out for four to six months. He’s interrupted by Miro, Kip and Penelope.  Chuck then challenges Miro to a match next week, but Miro adds a stipulation: if he wins, Chuck has to become his young boy. Chuck accepts.

MATCH 2

Wardlow cuts a brief promo saying he’s going to give Hager the “war” he wants. The two lock up and reset.

Darby weighs in at 171. Taz chastizes Darby because he’s got all this stuff on him. Darby grabs the mic and says this feud’s been happening for 9 months, but to Darby it’s been going for 27 years as he’s dealt with shit like this his whole life. Darby readies to fight all of Team Taz with his skateboard, but the lights go out and here comes Sting. Taz says he’s sick of the snow and he’s sick of him. Next week he promises a new TNT Champion in Brian Cage.

Despite the respect shown between the two, Hager is still upset backstage about the loss. MJF comes in with an olive branch and Hager accepts.

We see a clip from AEW Dark of Brodie Jr. cutting a promo on Marko Stunt. We then cut to Alex Marvez with Jurassic Express and Marko begins to speak, but in comes FTR with Tully. They run him down as a mascot loser and that fires Marko up enough to sub himself into the tag match next week replacing Luchasaurus. Tully teases another “flashback.”

MATCH 3

Cody comes out to a remix of Snoop rapping over his theme. The bell rings and the two go back and forth. Sydal has a lot of control as he drops his knees in the corner and gets a two count. Sydal hits a top rope meteroa onto the entryway. Snoop a loop has to move.

She drags Shida out from under the ring and sure enough, Shida’s neck is bitten. Abadon slams Shida down and covers for a two count. Chris questions why the match isn’t thrown out.
