– Tony Schiavone and Cody are on commentary again, with an assist from Pharaoh the dog.
1. Kenny Omega defeated Trent with the One-Winged Angel. Omega helped Trent up after the match and fist-bumped him.
2. Hikaru Shida defeated Anna Jayy. Shida won with a knee to the back of the head, followed by a Falcon Arrow. Britt Baker was among the wrestlers at ringside for the match, and she and Shida had words before and afterward. Also, Baker ate a sandwich because she thought the match was boring.
– A video package about Jon Moxley’s rivalry with Jake Hager aired. Moxley mentioned that they used to listen to the Jerky Boys together. I didn’t need to include that in the results, but I felt like you should know. Moxley and Hager will face off for the AEW World Championship on Dynamite in two weeks.
3. Lance Archer murdered Marko Stunt. Colt Cabana was on commentary. Archer won with a chokeslam and his Blackout slam. After the match, Archer chokeslammed Stunt from the ring apron onto the wrestlers at ringside.
– Another video of Brodie Lee bossing around the Dark Order aired.
4. The Natural Nightmares (Dustin Rhodes and QT Marshall) defeated Dark Order members 8 and 9. “8” and “9” were generic masked men. The Nightmares won their Dynamite debut with their tandem cutter finisher.
– Chris Jericho sent in a video of him at his home in a hot tub. Vanguard-1 flew in and Jericho once again offered him a spot in the Inner Circle. Jericho gave him a tiny t-shirt, but Vanguard flew away with it. Jericho then “released the hounds,” a bunch of cute little dogs, to chase the drone.
.@IAmJericho extends a second invitation to #Vanguard1 to join the #InnerCircle. It didn't go according to plan.

– The Young Bucks worked out in a ring at Nick Jackson’s home and talked about how he isn’t ready to return yet.
5. Shawn Spears and Sammy Guevara defeated Cody and Darby Allin. Spears and Guevara bet on the match during the match. Guevara tried to introduce a chair, which distracted Allin and allowed Spears to roll him up for the win. After the match, Allin knocked Cody down with a forearm.
