After the match, The Young Bucks run out and celebrate with the new champs, but Page opts to go celebrate with the crowd and he gets body surfed all the way to the stage.
Excellent match. Both teams killed it and they continue to play into the rift between Page and The Elite. I love that they are actually taking their time with this. #AEWDynamite

Tony Schiavone interviews Baker after the match and Baker insults Tony by saying that before AEW he was working at Starbucks. Baker calls him a “shitty barista” and taunts the crowd as they boo her. She says that she is a role model and that is a lot of pressure on her, along with her being the most beautiful girl on the boat.
After the match, Baker cuts a heel promo mainly insulting Tony Schiavone. Baker was not working as a babyface, AT ALL, so I'm all for this, but that was not a good promo. #AEWDynamite
