Commentary: Jim Ross, Tony Schiavone and Excalibur
Chris Jericho’s music hits to start off the show.
First Labour of Jericho
Chris Jericho vs. Shawn Spears (with Tully Blanchard)
Shawn immediately has the chair while MJF joins commentary. Jericho makes Shawn drop the chair with some shots. Jericho grabs the chair (not allowed to use it mind you) and Spears kicks him in the gut, but Chris takes him out on the apron. The fight goes out there he throws Shawn into the barricade and grabs a ringside camera to pan around at the fans. “AE-Dub” chants.
Later on, Jericho goes for his patented springboard dropkick but Spears shoots a chair to Chris’ head mid-air. Jericho does get back on offense and soon ascends the turnbuckle, but Spears catches him up top for a super belly-to-belly. He has Jericho’s left arm draped around the ring post and smacks it with the chair.
Back in the ring, Jericho takes Spears down with two shoulder tackles. Double axe handle from up top and the crowd pops. He sets Spears up top and does a ten punch from up high before flourishing it with a Frankensteiner. A hard shot by Spears downs Chris for a near fall. Spears catches Jericho with a sit-out powerbomb for another two count. He gives Chris a chair shot and struts a bit. He tees Jericho up with a chair, but Chris turns it into a Walls of Jericho. Tully hops on the apron to distract. It works and Shawn taps. Sammy comes down to regulate and scares Tully off, Shawn catches Chris in the skull with a chair and hits his C4 finisher: 1-2-no!
Shawn wedges a chair in the corner, he picks Jericho up for another C4 before stacking the chair on Jericho’s back. Chris escapes, shoves Shawn into the adjacent side that has another chair wedged in it. Spears smacks off that and Jericho smacks him with the Judas Effect for the finish.
WINNER: Chris Jericho
MJF is irate and says if Jericho has anyone else interfere, the deal is off. Well next week, MJF has the Second Labour for Chris: A No DQ match against Nick Gage.
We see Miro after the break. He says there will be no champion after him.
Doc Gallows (with Karl Anderson) vs. “The Elite Hunter” Frankie Kazarian
Bell rings and Kaz immediately lays it in. Hard chops to Doc and comes leaping off with a shotgun dropkick, but a big boot downs him. Doc decks him in the corner with some jabs before slamming him hard in the opposite side. He gets sent to the outside and it allows Karl Anderson to come in with a lariat. We head to break.
Back from it, Kaz is locked in a headlock, but he strikes back. Doc misses twice and Kaz collides with him. Big belly to back by Kaz before hitting his patented leg drop for two. “Frankie” chants. Kaz goes for the crossface chicken wing. Anderson meddles in his business and it eventually allows Gallows to hit his bomb finisher and it’s good enough for the three count.
WINNER: Doc Gallows
Post-match, The Good Brothers hit a Magic Killer on Kaz as Omega and Callis walk on the stage. Callis wants all these cowboys in Texas to watch what happens when you mess with The Elite. Kenny tells Kaz to welcome to his humble abode. For months he’s been a thorn in their side. “The Elite Hunter”” has now become “The Elite hunted.” Suddenly out comes Hangman Adam Page with beer in hand. “Cowboy shit” chants ensue. Don gets on the mic. He says it’s four on one. Is he that stupid or is he just drunk? Page fights all men, but the numbers game got him. Out comes Dark Order to even the odds and Kenny flees. Silver and Reynolds attack Karl before Hangman nails him with a Buckshot Lariat.
Brian Cage is backstage and a clip is shown to him revealing that Ricky Starks will celebrate his FTW Title win next week in Charlotte. That works out, you know why? He loves celebrations.
Wheeler Yuta (with Orange Cassidy) vs. Darby Allin (with Sting)
Darby’s ribs are taped up as him and Yuta get technical with some mat work. Dropkick from the corner by Darby. He goes to suplex Wheeler, but a kick to the ribs stops that and hangs him over the top rope, focusing on the ribs. Two count.
He’s got an octopus hold on Darby and jabs his elbow into his ribs. Darby bites the rope for the break. He frees himself. Yuta hits a German with a bridge for two. Darby plants Yuta up top. Superplex from Darby.
At ringside, Orange and Sting trade shin kicks. Very casual. Wheeler gets a near fall, but Darby does connect with his Coffin Drop for the finish.
WINNER: Darby Allin

Santana reveals pictures and documents belonging to his mother. Dax says all he cares about is God, pro wrestling and family and they’re gonna take Santana and Ortiz out.
Tony Schiavone introduces Andrade El Idolo to the Forth Worth crowd. Andrade comes out with his associate. Andrade tells the crowd “tranquilo.” He has a surprise for everyone. The associate speaks with Tony who introduces Andrade’s new executive consultant: Chavo Guerrero. Big “Chavo” chants. He says “Wow, you remember!” Of course you do because this is Dallas, TX! He hears AEW is the place to be. What a great time to be a wrestling fan. With all due respect to those talented men and women in the back, Chavo doesn’t see anyone as talented as Andrade. Out comes Death Triangle with Alex Abrahantes. PAC says last week he heard their names in Andrade’s mouth. He says let it be known that Death Triangle hide from no one. Andrade thanks them for coming. They may be good, but Andrade is great. He speaks Spanish to them. “I am elite superstar.” Chavo explains it to PAC. He says they’re all talented, but when he looks at their waist, it’s not shiny enough, but they want to change it. Andrade has a question. He asks Fenix and Penta why he works for PAC. Now you work for Andrade El Idolo. PAC’s not sure what planet they’re on, but Death Triangle is a team. Fenix backs that up with PAC. They say they are the real face of the Latinos. Penta gets on and speaks in Spanish. Alex tells him that Penta sys why would they join a group with Andrade when he’s not even on their level. Andrade taunts them as the officials come out (a little late) to keep them separated.
Next week Christian and Jurassic Express want to end the HFO for good in multi-man tag action.
QT Marshall wants an apology next week from Cody and next week in Charlotte, he’ll get one.

He goes for a suplex, but Orange hits a Stundog Millionaire. “Freshly squeezed” chants. Blade catches Orange up top to hit a gutwrench bomb on the top turnbuckle and we head to break.
Back from break, Orange smashes Blade’s head into the turnbuckle from the apron before hitting a high cross body and his spinning DDT for a near fall.
