It is Wednesday, my dudes…Savez-vous ce que cela signifie.

We are welcomed to ringside as William Ospreay makes his way out for our opening contest! The former IWGP World Heavyweight Champion is set to take on a New Japan mainstay as Katsuyori Shibata makes his way to the ring next. We look back at a 2017 New Japan bout between these two men as tonight’s match gets underway!

Will Ospreay vs. Katsuyori Shibata

The two circle the ring before exchanging holds, with Shibata getting the upper hand in that regard. Ospreay finally makes it to the ropes to break the hold, and the two get ready to lock up once more…only it’s Ospreay who takes control this time, cinching in a chinlock in the process! Shibata works on escaping the hold, finally getting to his feet for a wristlock…but Ospreay takes Shibata down to escape.

Catch as catch can gets displayed from both men, until Shibata escapes…only for Ospreay to narrowly avoid a PK! Both men back up to opposite corners to regroup. Another lockup leads to the action heading to the ropes before Will breaks the hold…but Shibata rushes the Aerial Assassin in the corner, before Ospreay fights back with a big dropkick!

Ospreay hits a set of strikes on Shibata in the corner before launching himself for a dropkick, forcing Shibata to exit the ring…where Ospreay intercepts with a dive through the ropes! Ospreay sends Shibata back into the ring now…and Shibata hits the ropes for a running front kick, sending Will off the apron to the floor outside!

Both men get to their feet as Ospreay goes for some forearm strikes on the Wrestler…which turns out to be a mistake on his part, as Shibata responds with a massive strike of his own followed by a vertical suplex onto the ramp and a roundhouse kick to level the Aerial Assassin! Shibata goes back in the ring, sitting cross-legged as the ref begins a count…only to then leave the ring to bring Will back in the ring!

Back in the ring, Ospreay is able to start fighting back with a leglock before firing up some strikes…but is taken right back down by Shibata as we go to picture-in-picture!

Picture-in-Picture: Much of this break revolves around both men trying to get the upper hand with a submission hold in the center of the ring, before they get to their feet for an exchange of holds that Shibata wins. Ospreay is down as Shibata starts laying in kicks, but the Assassin finally gets back to his feet once more with some forearms as we come back!

Ospreay gets taken down, before Shibata sends him outside for more punishment against the barricade…only for Ospreay to fight back, leaping off the barricade to take Shibata down! Back in the ring, Ospreay springboards off the ropes for a nearfall before laying in some more kicks…but Shibata is back on his feet all the same!

Ospreay lays in a series of forearms, only to be laid out by Shibata…who sends Ospreay to the corner for some more strikes, but Will is quick to respond with some of his own! This goes back and forth until Shibata has Ospreay in the corner…laying in some more strikes and ending things with a big dropkick of his own!

Shibata gets a nearfall before Ospreay locks in an abdominal stretch…but Shibata reverses with one of his own, transitioning into a flying octopus hold! Ospreay manages to escape, fighting back with a crescent kick before hitting the ropes…but Shibata catches him in midair, taking him down to the canvas for an STF! Ospreay manages to grab the bottom rope to break the hold, however!

Shibata goes for some more strikes as Opsreay gets up, only for Will to hit one of his own…to which Shibata responds with a big right hand! Ospreay evades a PK but gets one to the back for his troubles! Every flurry of strikes from Ospreay is met with a massive blow from Shibata…until Ospreay manages to kip up for an enziguri!

Hidden Blade is evaded by Shibata, who locks in a sleeper hold. Ospreay goes for the ropes but gets taken down with a sleeper suplex! Shibata locks a sleeper hold in again and the ref checks on him…but Ospreay wills himself back in! He gets Shibata set up on the ropes for a leg drop, followed by an Oscutter…but Shibata kicks out at one!

Furious strike coming in from Shibata, but Ospreay fights back to land a back suplex! Uppercut connects but it’s only a two count on Shibata this time! Tiger Driver ’91 and a Hidden Blade do the deed as Ospreay picks up the pin and the win!

Winner via pinfall: William Ospreay

Earlier Tonight: Renee talks to the Young Bucks ahead of their tag tournament match tonight, with the EVPs running her down before addressing their goals for this year. They retired Sting, restructured The Elite by bringing in Okada, and look to regain the AEW World Tag Team Championship by winning the tournament. They promise lightning never strikes the same place twice, and that they will defeat Private Party tonight!

-Commercial Break-

We cut to the parking lot, where new AEW Continental Champion Kazuchika Okada has just arrived in his new Ferrari, seemingly ignoring whatever call time is set for the talent.

Back at ringside, the Young Bucks make their way to the ring for our next match! Out next are Private Party, looking to repeat an upset over the Bucks to advance in the tag title tournament as this match gets underway!

AEW Tag Team Championships Tournament Quarterfinals: The Young Bucks vs. Private Party

We start off with Matthew and Zay, who start mouthing off before Zay catches Matthew with a couple surprise nearfalls before being taken down by Matthew, who tags in Nicholas. Tag to Marq now and a double pin gets stopped as the Bucks kick out…but Private Party take the EVPs down with a pair of thrust kicks! The Bucks leave the ring and are dropped by Private Party, before Quen gets sent over the barricade by Matthew…who gets taken down with a Silly String DDT from Zay off the barricade! Nicholas and Quen fight on the barricade for a moment, before the Buck drops Marq to the floor with a Falcon Arrow!

Nicholas gets to the ring as the ref makes the count…only for Zay to get him back in time to stop it at nine! Bucks double-team Quen before knocking Zay off the apron to keep him isolated as we go to picture-in-picture!

Picture-in-Picture: The Bucks continue to keep Quen from getting a tag as they wear him down, only for Zay to break up the pin to finally intervene. This comes back to bite him when Nicholas drops him against the apron on the outside as Matthew continues the attack while we come back from break!

The Bucks go for a double team from the corner but Zay nocks Nicholas off, dropping Matthew on the top rope before heading back to his corner for the tag from Quen! Zay lights up with a flurry of offense on the Bucks, evading Nicholas to take down Matthew…and hits an Asai moonsault to Nicholas on the outside! Springboard cross body lets him get the cover on Matthew, who kicks out!

Nicholas gets back in as the Bucks take Zay down hard with an assisted powerbomb for the cover…but Quen breaks up the pin! Marq takes the Bucks down, dragging Zay to the corner so a tag can be made…but the Bucks take advantage of him being worn down, and Nicholas hits a German suplex landing Marq on the apron! TK Driver gets stopped as Quen cradles Nicholas and Zay keeps Matthew on the top rope…and they end up hitting a Gin and Juice for a nearfall! Private Party take a page out of the Bucks playbook with More Bang For Your Buck for another cover…but Nicholas breaks the pin!

He goes to grab a ring bell from outside, but the ref stops him…as Matthew hits Quen in the little solo cups with a low blow! Cover made, but Quen kicks out…and Zay sneaks a title shot to the head for a cover, only for Matthew to kick out! EVP Trigger gets the job done as the Bucks get the pin and the win!

-Commercial Break-

Video Package: Help Darby Allin and Tony Hawk support local skateparks by going to!

Backstage, Renee talks to HOOK and Chris Jericho about the proposition Jericho has for the FTW Champion. Jericho talks about having respect for HOOK after the match they had last week, and offers Jericho any advice he may want. HOOK thanks him for the praise and says he will accept his advice, but he also knows who Jericho is. Jericho also knows who HOOK is, and this seems to tease a future alliance between the two.

Back at ringside, Mercedes Moné makes her way to commentary for our next match. Out first is Willow Nightingale, followed by Anna Jay and Kris Statlander. Rounding the entrants is Skye Blue, and this match gets underway to see who becomes #1 contender to the TBS Championship!

TBS Championship Number One Contender Match: Anna Jay vs. Willow Nightingale vs. Skye Blue vs. Kris Statlander

We start things off with a bit of chaos leading to Anna and Willow being the last two in the ring, with Willow overpowering Anna in the corner…but Jay manages to fight back! Skye makes it back in but a pinfall is attempted before Kris breaks it up! We focus on Anna and Statlander now, with Kris taking Jay down with a shoulder tackle. Statlander is distracted by Skye Blue at ringside, who takes a pounce from Willow before Nightingale turns her attention to Mercedes at the commentary booth as we go to picture-in-picture!

Picture-in-Picture: The action spills to the outside with all four women going at it before Statlander brings Blue back into the ring for a nearfall. Blue fights back the former champion, but Willow intercepts with a big spinebuster before Anna takes her down…only to get laid out with a discus lariat as we come back from break!

Jay, Statlander, and Blue go at it before Kris takes Skye down for a nearfall! The latter two end up fighting it out on the turnbuckle before a nearfall gets broken up by Willow!

Queenslayer gets broken out of before Willow hits a big dropkick…leading to a staredown between Kris and Willow!

Skye looking for a move on the apron but it costs her as Willow drops her with a Death Valley Driver onto the apron! Back in the ring, Statlander gets caught by Anna for a nearfall before getting taken down by a kick form Jay…who gets hit with the gutwrench powerbomb by Willow for the pin and the win!

Winner via pinfall and new #1 Contender to the TBS Championship: Willow Nightingale

The celebration is short-lived as Hart blindsides Willow with a TBS Championship to the back, only for Julia to turn her attention to the CEO before regrouping on the outside with Skye Blue.

Backstage, Renee talks to Dustin Rhodes about his matches the past few months before The Butcher cuts in to challenge Rhodes to a match at Rampage!

We cut to a vignette with Ben Mankiewicz and “Timeless” Toni Storm, the perfect combination in light of this change in attitude from the AEW Women’s World Championship. The segment is centered around Ben refusing to repeat all of Toni’s catchphrase, but still a fun time-filler before we go to commercial.

Out next is Konosuke Takeshita, accompanied by Don Callis on his way down the ramp before this match gets underway!

AEW World Championship Number One Contender Match: Swerve Strickland vs. Konosuke Takeshita

We get a handshake to start things off…but that handshake turns into a test of strength of sorts before Swerve escapes the grasp of the Alpha. The two lock up until Swerve gets to the ropes, and follows up with a roll up for a nearfall on Takeshita. Swerve goes for an armbar but the Alpha gets to the ropes to force a break!

Takeshita takes Strickland down to a wave of jeers, but he pays little mind to it as he goes back on the attack in the corner…only for Swerve to fight back! He continues to wear Takeshita down, setting him up for a neckbreaker on the middle rope for a nearfall…but Takeshita fights back with a brainbuster for good measure! Takeshita doesn’t give Swerve much room to recover before laying into him with forearms, the action moving to the ropes where Strickland fights back…until Konosuke lays him out, sending Strickland to the outside as we go to picture-in-picture!

Picture-in-Picture: Takeshita maintains control, sending Swerve back in the ring for even more damage as he drops Strickland in the corner.

Konosuke’s back in the ring now, countering a Swerve Stomp repeat…and a series of reversal leads to Takeshita hitting the wheelbarrow and Power Drive Knee for the cover! BUT SWERVE KICKS OUT ONCE AGAIN!

Takeshita sends Swerve to the corner, looking for an avalanche Blue Thunder Bomb…but Swerve stops him, only to miss a Swerve Stomp! Strickland evades a Blue Thunder Bomb, sending the Alpha face-first into the turnbuckle before landing a House Call! One more Swerve Stomp should do it as Strickland gets the cover…BUT TAKESHITA KICKS OUT!
