AEW All-Atlantic Title Match
Orange Cassidy (c) vs. Jake Hager

This match works perfect for Orange Cassidy. It focused on a hat and they had their spots around it. Hager doesn’t matter at all so losing doesn’t hurt him. Crowd was into it though. 

2.5 / 5

AEW World Title Eliminator Tournament Final Match
Ethan Page vs. Ricky Starks

Starks being hurt gave you the slight thought maybe Page would win, even though we all knew there was zero chance. Starks got his comeback story in the match and the crowd is behind him. We know he’s not beating MJF but it should be a good match. 

2.5 / 5

AEW World Trios Title Best Of Seven Series Match #2
Death Triangle (PAC, Penta El Zero Miedo & Rey Fenix) (c) vs. The Elite (Kenny Omega, Matt Jackson & Nick Jackson)

Not their best match together but this was still fun. A lot of call backs to other things including the CM Punk drama and big spots galore. The win gives the champs the upper hand even though this is going to go 7 matches for sure. 

 3 / 5

Three Way Tag Team Match
Dr. Britt Baker DMD & Jamie Hayter vs. Skye Blue & Willow Nightingale vs. TayJay (Anna Jay AS & Tay Melo)

Odd first match for Hayter as champ but this is just slowly setting up Hayter vs Britt. The match itself though wasn’t really anything special or memorable at all. 

2 / 5

ROH World Title Match
Chris Jericho (c) vs. Tomohiro Ishii

Ishii is super over with the crowd. This was the exact type of match you’d expect from him. A lot of hard slaps and hits, Jerichos chest was bleeding, and it was super bruised. Ishii was close to winning but Jericho took it at the last second. Fun match and a good end to the show. 

3.5 / 5
