It is Wednesday, my dudes…you know what that means.

The show kicks off with MJF’s music as the former AEW World Champion makes his way down the ramp to a big pop from the crowd. Max enters the ring, calling for his music to be cut as the crowd cheer him on chanting “he’s our scumbag.”

MJF talks up being in Colorado, which gets the crowd going as he talks about being back and having new merch out. He then talks about being home, sitting and watching what’s going down before going into wrestling at Forbidden Door when they head to Long Island, New York. He goes back to his point, talking about the changes to The Elite before running down Okada and the current World Champion, Swerve Strickland.

MJF says he was offended by Strickland calling himself a business mogul, saying he either didn’t go to business school or missed courses in public speaking. To MJF, however, the most offensive thing he saw was Will Ospreay calling himself the best in the world. MJF runs down a list of men Ospreay didn’t beat, reminding everyone that Max beat each and every one of them before stating he is the best in the world.

Max goes on to say he became the face of AEW, with the best matches and interviews in the company, and going from being the most hated man in the company to the most beloved. He listened back home as people tried to smear his name…but is interrupted by the music of RUSH as El Toro Blanco steps onto the stage, calling for his music to be cut. He says MJF is much like these fans, in that he never shuts up.

While MJF was out injured, RUSH has been working hard and winning. MJF comes back to a celebration, but where is RUSH’s celebration? RUSH feels he deserves that spotlight, so he’s going to take it…because when you mess with the bull, you get the horns!

MJF runs him down, saying he didn’t catch anything El Toro Blanco just said and running down The Elite for making things worse around here. He asks RUSH to run that back, before cutting him back off. MJF addresses the bounty he offered for taking out Bryan Danielson, recognizing the international superstar RUSH is as he has beaten some of the best in the business. Here’s the problem, MJF isn’t one of the best…he is THE best.

MJF offers some words to RUSH, insulting him in Spanish before cutting his catchphrase…only for RUSH to make a beeline for the ring, the two immediately going at it as officials and security run down to break things up! RUSH breaks away to get some more shots in on MJF, before security finally pulls him out of the ring and up the ramp.

Video Package: We get a look at the rise of Roderick Strong, the man challenging for the AEW World Championship in tonight’s main event!

We cut back to ringside, where Orange Cassidy makes his way to the ring for our opening contest to such a loud pop it nearly drowns out the announcement of the match itself, clarified to be a four-way match with the winner facing Will Ospreay next week for the AEW International Championship. Out next is Kyle O’Reilly, followed by Jay Lethal and Rey Fenix before this opening match gets underway!

Four-Way Match (Winner faces Will Ospreay next week for the AEW International Championship): Orange Cassidy vs. Kyle O’Reilly vs. Jay Lethal vs. Rey Fenix

After an early flurry, Fenix gets sent out of the ring by Lethal, who catches O’Reilly with an enziguri that sends him out as well. This leaves Lethal hitting a strut, only to be dropped to the mat by Cassidy who sends him to the ropes. Kyle attacks Jay on the apron before going back in the ring, locking up with Cassidy…who gets his hands in his pockets to break a hold!

Orange catches some momentum off the ropes for a dropkick forcing Kyle out of the ring, but Cassidy gets caught by Fenix in the corner immediately after. Fenix hits a flurry of offense sending Orange out, but is blindsided by Lethal in the process. Jay goes for the Lethal Injection but is caught by a waistlock from O’Reilly, who gets rocked by Fenix before all three go at it…until Cassidy gets back into it, taking the rest of the competitors out as we go to picture-in-picture!

Picture-in-Picture: The action focuses on Lethal sending two of the other men out before going after Cassidy in the corner, setting up for a superplex that drops him hard to the mat but only gets a nearfall. He goes back on the attack with a kick to the gut, but Cassidy blocks a suplex attempt as we come back from break!

Cassidy continues to evade a suplex before dropping Lethal with a Stundog Millionaire…but Kyle rushes in with a cross arm breaker on Cassidy! He gets Orange to his shoulders for a pin attempt, but Fenix hits a splash to break it up. Fenix and O’Reilly get sent to the outside as Lethal goes for a figure four leglock on Cassidy, cinching it in tight. Fenix goes for a stomp on Lethal, who evades as Kyle gets a sleeper hold on Fenix instead!

Lethal breaks his hold to stop O’Reilly getting the submission, and this ends up with Lethal getting caught with a cross arm breaker by Kyle for his troubles. Cassidy and Fenix break the hold before attacking each other, which gives Lethal an opening to drop Fenix before rolling out of the ring. Fenix gets caught with a headscissors by Cassidy, who hits an Orange Punch on O’Reilly only to be rocked with a Lethal Combination by Jay!

Lethal Injection connects on Cassidy, but he’s quickly caught by surprise by Fenix, who cradles Lethal for the pin and the win!

Winner via pinfall: Rey Fenix

Just as the match ends, we see Don Callis and Trent Beretta heading down the ramp to go after Orange Cassidy, only for Kris Statlander to seemingly intervene…until she drops Cassidy with a right hand! Orange does all he can to keep his composure as Willow Nightingale’s music hits, sending her on a beeline for her former friend…but Statlander escapes, leaving the ring with Stokely Hathaway as they head up the ramp.

Out first is Mark Briscoe to a big pop, followed by Brian Cage before this match gets underway!

TNT Championship Qualifying Match: Mark Briscoe vs. Brian Cage

Cage lays into the ROH World Champion early on, sending him to the corner for some hard strikes before Briscoe manages to fight back, sending Cage out of the ring in the process. Brsicoe grabs a chair and sends it into the ring, only for the ref to toss it out to a wave of boos from the crowd. Briscoe is distracted by this, which gives Cage the opening to go back after him before sending him to the floor.

Cage follows up by bringing Briscoe back into the ring, launching him over the top rope before posing for the crowd as we go to picture-in-picture!

Picture-in-Picture: Cage maintains control throughout, laying into Briscoe in a showcase of his power before getting a nearfall. Cage then transitions into a headlock that keeps Briscoe grounded to the mat, but Briscoe starts fighting back as we come back from break!

Briscoe leaves the ring, once again bringing chairs into the ring. The ref takes one of them out but the other is set up, allowing Briscoe to hit a tope dive over the top rope onto Cage! Briscoe sends him back into the ring before hitting a Froggy Bow…but Cage kicks out!

Briscoe goes for a Jay Driller, but Cage turns it around for a pumphandle slam for a nearfall. He follows up with a Liger Bomb, but Briscoe kicks out of this as well.

Backstage again, Renee talks to Samoa Joe and HOOK about the former World Champion offering to be a mentor before the Premier Athletes interrupt to run HOOK down. Joe keeps him from going off on Nese and Daivari, saying losers like them don’t talk to winners like us unless they think they can get away with it.

Back at ringside, The Acclaimed start a rap about the Young Bucks before the EVPs cut him off, telling them the segment has been cut since they disparaged Nicholas and Matthew. The crowd chants what they think of this, but The Acclaimed’s mics are cut off so they cannot respond as they head up the ramp instead.

We cut backstage where Renee talks to Swerve Strickland, who addresses MJF before saying the contract for the AEW World Championship match will be sent to Will Ospreay. He then talks about the Young Bucks and how Team AEW shouldn’t forget the World Champion next time.

Roddy makes it back into the ring as he goes after Strickland, but the champ evades a kick to turn things around in his favor. Despite this, Strong fights back with a chop before Swerve sends him into the turnbuckle.
