AEW World Trios Title Tournament First Round Match
The Dark Order (Alex Reynolds, John Silver & Ten) vs. The House Of Black (Brody King, Buddy Matthews & Malakai Black) (w/Julia Hart)

This was a really fun match till the end. Dark Order worked well here with a lot of good team moves and spots. House Of Black were great, John Silver is super over and under used, then the finish happened. No clue why during a run in the ref sees they don’t call a DQ or why the finish was a roll up. 

2.5 / 5

AEW TNT Title Match
Wardlow (c) vs. Ryan Nemeth

A squash for the super over Wardlow. 

.5 / 5

Singles Match
Powerhouse Hobbs vs. Ashton Day

 Not sure why they did two squash matches in a row. Hobbs at least had some nasty looking moves here. 

.5 / 5

Mixed Tag Team Match
Ortiz & Ruby Soho vs. The Jericho Appreciation Society (Sammy Guevara & Tay Melo) (w/Angelo Parker)

 I really like Ortiz and Ruby together. A decent match here with Ruby hitting the rana on Sammy being the highlight. Another weird run in finish though to finish the match just was garbage. 

2.5 / 5

ROH World Title Match
Claudio Castagnoli (w/Wheeler Yuta) (c) vs. Dustin Rhodes (w/Arn Anderson & Brock Anderson)

A really good match between two vets in the business. Dustin got close a few times and had some clever moves he did. The ending was a bit anticlimactic and fast with Dustin doing a bunch of moves to try to pit Claudio but Claudio only needing one uppercut to end it. 

3.5 / 5
