AEW All-Atlantic Title Match
Orange Cassidy (c) vs. Jay Lethal

Another solid Orange match. This works for him as a champ having him beat more veteran guys who we know aren’t taking the belt. Orange can go when he has a match that warrants it and that’s exciting to see. 

3.5 / 5

Singles Match
Ruby Soho vs. Skye Blue

The commercial here hurt this. Skye never wins anything important but is around enough to make Ruby beating her not feel like a complete pointless squash. 

2 / 5

Six Man Tag Team Match
Top Flight (Dante Martin & Darius Martin) & AR Fox vs. The Jericho Appreciation Society (Chris Jericho, Daniel Garcia & Sammy Guevara) (w/Angelo Parker, Jake Hager & Matt Menard)

Jericho moving into Trios is new. AR Fox and Top Flight are a good team that just are too new and don’t have much under them to be considered anything dominate. 

2.5 / 5

Tag Team Match
The Dark Order (Alex Reynolds & John Silver) vs. The Blackpool Combat Club (Claudio Castagnoli & Jon Moxley) (w/Wheeler Yuta)

Mox wrestling days after that brutal Texas Death Match was odd. Also two guys here who are main event level champ and ex champ taking so long to beat Dark Order is odd. I like Dark Order but they are zero threat and rarely around. 

2.5 / 5

AEW TNT Title Falls Count Anywhere Match
Wardlow (c) vs. Powerhouse Hobbs

An odd odd match. Wardlow losing days after getting the belt and coming back really is odd. Hobbs has had this coming to win and feels like a star but having QT come in to help him win was odd. QT isn’t around much and Hobbs doesn’t need a manager mouth piece. If they did this to make Wardlow look strong still it just felt unneeded and random. 

2 / 5
