Winners by Pinfall: Matt Hardy and The Young Bucks

Winner by Pinfall: Brian Cage

At Fyter Fest, he’s dealing with something different. He’s dealing with a machine. Taz wants him to bring the fight and grit Moxley is known for, as well as his heart. Cage will tear Moxley’s heart out of his chest. Taz tells Moxley to understand that this is “The Machine” Brian Cage. Survive if he lets you!
Dr. Britt Baker is brought out to the stage on a wheelchair. It says “Roll Model” on the back. Tony Schiavone is at the top of the ramp with her. There’s a board that says, “The Rules of Being a Role Model.” Baker isn’t pleased with how he announced it. Rule #3 is all about her: Don’t hurt the role model. Last week’s egregious tandem assault left her with a broken tibia. It wasn’t an accident. It was a conspiracy that goes far and beyond.
Still photos are shown of Nyla Rose landing on her leg and Baker being tended to at ringside. Baker says there’s no women’s division without her. Kris Statlander being an alien is a crock of shit. Hikaru Shida is a cheater and conspirator. Nyla Rose has come off the top rope with precision and grace, so she couldn’t have guided herself away from her fragile leg? Conspirator!
Baker has Rebel get a bulletin board with a bunch of pictures and red string. All the evils done to her have seen Aubrey Edwards (mostly) refereeing the matches Baker was hurt in. Baker says she’ll be back for All Out. They’re on notice.
AEW’s Unrivaled Collection is coming in August 2020.
Alex Marvez is backstage with The Inner Circle. Chris Jericho tells him to shut his fat head. They’ll be out there getting back on track after they were robbed… Orange Cassidy walks through their shot. Jericho doesn’t like that.

Video Package: Cody defeats Lance Archer to win the TNT Championship
TNT Champion Cody makes his way to the ring. Tony Schiavone is in the ring to interview him. Schiavone congratulates him on the win. Cody asks Schiavone if he knows why Tom Brady is his favorite quarterback. It’s not because he’s a Boston guy who isn’t welcome in Connecticut… it’s because he wasn’t picked first. Tony Khan started a company wanting the best wrestlers in the world. Cody wasn’t the first, second, or third call. It doesn’t bother him because he’s the very first champion of America’s greatest network.
People think his story is one of nepotism and favoritism. His story is about a 21 year old kid that got called up to television not knowing anything. Cody says he grew up before everyone. Cody says people can critique him bell to bell, but he’ll outrun anyone on a track. Cody says this TNT Championship will be an open challenge. Cody has an obligation to the fans that turn out in droves for them. He’ll be a fighting champion defending the title every week.
