Footage of Tully Blanchard’s unbelievable promo that was shown on social media airs.

Taz grabs a microphone and says that Jon Moxely had the audacity to giggle at him when he was speaking to him last week. Taz says that they don’t play games and this is not a joke to them. He says that Moxley better get his head on right or Cage is going to take it off.
Moxley comes out but Taz stops him before getting in the ring and tells him to think and be careful before he steps in. Moxley shrugs Taz off and gets in the ring. He says the reason he was smiling last week and why he’s smiling right now is the thought of stepping in the ring with Brian Cage and going to war with him makes him happy.
Moxley says that’s why he’s in this business but stepping in the ring with him with his title on the line is the farthest thing from a game. Moxley looks over Cage and says he is impressive and says that Mox is no machine and he is only human and can be beat but it will take all night long to get it accomplished. Moxley says taking the AEW Title away from him is a different prospect from anything Cage has faced.
Moxley says Cage is in over his head and he will realize that he is swimming with a different breed of shark at Fyter Fest. Moxley says next time they want to name drop him on TV they better remember who exactly they are talking about.
Earlier today Lance Archer is approached in some vacant lot somewhere, by Alex Marvez, beating up a luchador. Archer says that no one is going to stop him and he isn’t here to be a spot monkey, he’s here to be a monster. Archer says he will kill everyone in his way.
Footage of the knee injury Marq Quen suffered last week is shown. Earlier today, Private Party is talking about what happened last week when Matt Hardy approaches them wearing his Hardy Boyz gear. Quen shows his knee is fine. Hardy says he enjoyed their match last week and he calls them the future of tag team wrestling. He says their bond reminds him of the bond he and Jeff have. He says a lot of guys helped them when they were young and he is willing and ready to help them with anything they need, whether it be advice or anything. Isiah Kassidy suggests they team up and call it Party Hardy.
Hardy leaves and walks into Sammy Guevara on his knee scooter. Hardy says that they are cool and walks away to Guevara’s confusion.
Fyter Fest is announced as a two-night event July 1 and 8 on TNT with every championship on the line.

Orange Cassidy comes out as Jericho says he wants to face “the baddest man on the planet.” OC grabs Jericho’s hands and puts them in his own pocket and then Hager goes after him but OC avoids them and retreats to the crowd with Best Friends.
A vignette of Britt Baker “rehabbing” her knee is shown, from her wheelchair. She uses combat ropes and lifts weights, all from her wheelchair. She is shown struggling to wheel herself up a ramp until Tony Schiavone appears and urges her on. This was priceless.

Earlier today, Schiavone interviewed Darby Allin. Schiavone says that AEW’s doctor has not cleared him to wrestle tonight and he asks Allin if the issues with Cage were due to what happened with Taz. Allin just says he will get the last laugh on Cage.
Tony Schiavone sits down with FTR and asks them what their name means. Dax says it’s a way of life for them, it’s not just a name or a tag line. Cash says it’s whatever they want to mean. He says they are a part of the “revolution” right now so right now it means “For The Revolution.”
FTR talks about all of the tag teams in AEW and say that the tag champs aren’t even a real team. They call the match with The Bucks a dream match that everyone wants but they don’t think it’s a dream match. Cash says they don’t want to have the best match with them, they just want to punch them in the mouth and beat them in three seconds.
Cash says that they saved The Bucks because they want The Bucks to be 100% when they beat them, they don’t want them to have any excuse for why FTR beat them. Schiavone says he always thought FTR meant “F*ck the Revival” and they all laugh and then Butcher and Blade show up. They try to go after FTR but security separates them. They will face each other next week.
Alex Marvez interviews Colt Cabana backstage and he says that he’s in AEW to show he can hang with the big dogs. Cabana says the big victories are what has evaded him so far when Brodie Lee approaches him. Lee says that without loss you don’t grow and he says it is what he does after a loss that matters. Lee says he can help Cabana with how he responds to a loss.
