AEW World Trios Title Match
The Elite (Kenny Omega, Matt Jackson & Nick Jackson) (c) vs. AR Fox & Top Flight (Dante Martin & Darius Martin)

The basketball angle was goofy but worked here. This was exactly what you expected, a lot of spots and fast action. Elite need a threat though and someone who you think will win. 

3.5 / 5

Singles Match
Ricky Starks vs. Daniel Garcia

A decent match but really nothing great. The story here of Starks running through JAS is whatever. Putting a break in the middle of this didn’t help much either. 

2 / 5

AEW TBS Title Match
Jade Cargill (w/Leila Grey) (c) vs. Vertvixen

So tired of Jades run with squashes.

.5 / 5

Singles Match
Dustin Rhodes vs. Swerve Strickland (w/Parker Boudreaux)

35 years in and Dustin Rhodes can still go with anyone. This was a good match and continues Rhodes being consistent in providing at least a solid match at the minimum in AEW. Strickland helped move it along here too so props to both. 

3.25 / 5
