It is Wednesday, my dudes…you know what that means.
Following a quick rundown of what’s to come tonight, Hangman Adam Page makes his way to the ring for our opening contest! Out next is Swerve Strickland, who looks ready to face Page one more time with a future shot at the AEW World Championship on the line. With that, our opening contest is underway!
Swerve Strickland vs. Hangman Adam Page
The two lock up until backing away, only to lock up once more…with Page taking Strickland to the corner before taking a clean break. Another lock up between the two ends with Swerve sending Hangman to the corner before making a clean break of his own, as he mocks Page…who responds with a smack to the face!
Strickland charges at Page, leading to a brawl between them that spills to the outside as Swerve takes control. He brings Hangman back into the ring, but Page sends him to the corner with a few punches and stomps on Strickland before stepping away. Swerve turns it around on the former World Champion, sending Page into the corner for some stomps of his own as the crowd show their approval.
Page catches Strickland with a fallaway slam much the crowd’s approval as well, clearly favoring both men as Page looks to bring Swerve to his feet…only to take a big headbutt for his troubles! Swerve drops Hangman and goes up top…only to be swept off the ropes by Hangman, who follows with some hard punches!
Swerve is quick to catch him by surprise however, looking for a flying octopus hold before taking Page to the canvas. Strickland looks to target the arm of Hangman now, but Page escapes before catching him with a lariat on the apron…and then slamming his head against the turnbuckle, sending Swerve to the floor!
Page goes to the outside to continue the beatdown, sending Strickland to the barricade before wearing him down with some more punches. He eventually brings Swerve back into the ring, sending him to the corner for a couple chops…until Swerve turns it around with some chops of his own!
Page manages to surprise Swerve for a nearfall before looking for a Buckshot Lariat, but Swerve intercepts…only to be sent to the outside, before Page goes up for a moonsault! Swerve dodges it, dropping him hard on the floor before rolling into the ring as the ref starts the count…only for Strickland to hit a dive over the top rope!
Page gets back in the ring, but only so that Swerve can keep up the damage with a hard kick and a chop from the ropes. Big vertical suplex now as Swerve heads to the corner for a House Call and the cover…BUT HANGMAN KICKS OUT!

The action ends up on the apron once more as Swerve lunges in for a kick to the face of Page, sending him to the floor. Strickland pursues him, looking for a piledriver on the barricade…but Page fights out! DDT onto the barricade by Hangman instead, and we go to picture-in-picture!
Picture-in-Picture: Hangman stays on the attack on the outside, grabbing a table and sending Swerve into the barricade before he sets that table up.

We get a note of five minutes left as Nana distracts Page, allowing Swerve to get back into it…only to get laid out with a Buckshot Lariat by Hangman! And another! Cover by Page…but Strickland gets his foot on the bottom rope!
Page yells at Nana about interfering despite that not happening this time, before he brings Strickland to the apron for a Dead Eye on the apron! Ref starts the count as Nana debates trying to help Strickland, doing the only thing he can without interfering as he dances to “motivate” Swerve…who narrowly gets in the ring at nine, only to be sent right back out by Page! Page grabs a steel chair, yelling at Swerve to stay down…before nailing Nana with it!
Only to get taken out with a kick that sends the chair in his face by Swerve! Back in the ring as Strickland hits a Swerve Stomp, notably hurting his ankle on the landing.

Page brought back in the ring as Swerve goes up top for a Swerve Stomp…but Page evades it! Buckshot…NO! JML Driver by Strickland, but he delays in getting the cover…and time runs out at the count of two!
Result: Time Limit Draw
The crowd shows their displeasure as Swerve grabs a microphone to verbalize his own. He says he didn’t go through all this for it to end on a draw, demanding five more minutes. The crowd loves the idea, but Page says Strickland needed to beat him to become number one contender and he failed. Swerve will not become World Champion, and for him it is over!
He drops the mic and leaves the ring, but Tony Schiavone makes an announcement…this is NOT done, and at Revolution there will be a three-way match for the AEW World Championship! Hangman Page, Swerve Strickland, and champion Samoa Joe will collide for the title, and Page is livid about this as we go to commercial!
Backstage, Renee talks to Samoa Joe about what was just announced for Revolution. Joe is not a happy man, to say the least, saying that neither man deserves to have that title shot and that the odds are stacked against him…but at Revolution, he will walk out as AEW World Champion, and it is a shame that Page and Swerve will suffer because of it!
Back at ringside, Deonna Purrazzo makes her way to commentary for our next match! Toni Storm makes her way to the ring next, followed by Red Velvet who looks to earn a title shot following Revolution as this match gets underway!

Danielson fights out and gets to his feet, as does the luchador who shoves Danielson…and he shoves right back! Hechicero with a nearfall before locking in a crucifix on him…eventually sending him to his shoulders for another nearfall!
Tags made to Claudio and Dorada, who hits a big chop on Claudio’s chest but to no avail…but a stomp does! Claudio fights back, stopping the luchador before taking him to the canvas! Dorada catches the former ROH World Champion with a flurry of offense that forces him to back off, tagging in Moxley as Volador Jr. tags in!
The two go at it until Volador catches Mox off-guard, sending him to the outside for a dive…but BCC go after him before the CMLL stars intervene! Chaos ensues as the ref intervenes, and Mox brings Volador back in the ring, stopping the luchador by sending him to the outside…and hitting a dive of his own! The other luchadores go after Mox now, with BCC and the ref coming in to break it up as we go to picture-in-picture!
Picture-in-Picture: BCC maintain control as Danielson tags in, wearing Volador down before tagging in Claudio…who continues the beatdown before tagging in Mox!

Three other CMLL luchadores hop the barricade in protest, going after BCC until we see Daniel Garcia and 3point0 come in to even the numbers.
We get interrupted by something backstage, as Chuck Taylor gets attacked by Undisputed Kingdom! Adam Cole mockingly tells Taylor to “get well soon” as we go to commercial.
We cut backstage for a special announcement from Tony Khan. Earlier tonight it was confirmed that TD Garden hosts Dynamite, a night Khan touts as being very important as it will be AEW Big Business, five weeks from tonight, and it is a show not to be missed.
Back at ringside, Chris Jericho makes his way to the ring for our next match. Out next is Konosuke Takeshita, accompanied by the Don Callis Family before this match gets underway!

They attack Sting’s sons as well, laying them out as the crowd shows their disapproval.
Darby is bloodied as the Bucks hit the BTE Trigger…or, as we find out from Excalibur, the EVP Trigger…before the beatdown continues on the new champions. After sufficient damage is done, the Bucks lift up the tag titles to a chorus of boos from the crowd as the show comes to a close.
