Footage of Eddie Kingston continuing to berate Jon Moxley after Dynamite went off the air. A passionate Kingston screams that Moxley sold out and says that he told Kingston when he signed his contract with WWE that the “inmates would run the asylum” but he left Kingston behind. Kingston said that Moxley found himself a beautiful wife while Kingston’s only love was pro wrestling and it did nothing but abuse him. He says that Moxley will pay for leaving him behind. Moxley vs. Kingston in an I Quit Match is announced for Full Gear, with the title on the line.
Jon Moxley says that when Kingston signed a contract with AEW no one was happier than him because no one knows better than him what Kingsotn has been through. He says he loved Kingston and true friends are hard to come from. Moxley says he doesn’t know the guy that Kingston has become, a whiny, bitter person that thinks the world owes him. He says he won’t apologize for his success or for being able to buy his mother a house.
Moxley says that he’s always had Kingston’s back until now. He says that Kingston keeps screaming that he never tapped or quit in their match before but at Full Gear either Kingston will tap and he will get his friend back or he will end Kingston!
World Title Eliminator Tournament Quarterfinals
“The Cleaner” Kenny Omega (4-0) vs. Sonny Kiss (1-5)
Omega gets a super long introduction from Justin Roberts where he lists all sorts of outlandish accomplishments – like “Kenny Omega once wrestled in North Carolina – and then two girls in swimsuits come out with brooms to dance as Omega is introduced. Omega immediately obliterates Sonny Kiss with a V-Trigger and the One Winged Angel for the pin!
Winner: Omega via pinfall (One Winged Angel)
Omega helps Kiss up after the match and is super over the top hugging Kiss and raising his hand in almost a mocking fashion.
Earlier today Tony Schiavone interviewed Orange Cassidy and OC says that sometimes things just don’t go your way, and that’s about all Tony can get out of him.
Also earlier today, Cody Rhodes is shown arriving in a limousine as Dasha approaches him and Arn. Cody says he isn’t surprised AEW wants a rematch and he says he is hearing rumors of a stipulation that will be added but says it doesn’t matter because OC can’t beat him. Cody talks about the weight he has gained recently and says he needed to add weight and muscle to keep up with some of the bigger guys in AEW.
Kingston mocks Jon Moxley but wants to talk about his family members – Penta and Fenix – because unlike Moxley he doesn’t forget about his family. He says that they will show everyone why they are the best luchadors on the planet, and later Butcher and Blade will go on to take out FTR and get those tag belts.
Kingston says what Moxley said in his promo was all true but his response is that he had to become an angry lying snake. He says he can’t look in the mirror because he hates what he has become but he says he had to become this way because the ends justify the means. He says when he wasn’t this way he got nothing but now he has a shot at the World Title in an I Quit Match. He says he has never quit at anything and Moxley will have to go to a really dark place in this match and he lives in that place.
World Title Eliminator Tournament Quarterfinals
Rey Fenix (4-1) vs. Penta el Cero M (1-0)
This is the first time these two have faced each other in AEW but they have wrestled each other dozens of times over the years. When they first broke into the business they wrestled each other constantly in trios matches. They shake hands to start off and hug before circling one another.
Fenix gets Penta in a Side Headlock and then takes him down but they quicken the pace and exchange beautiful armdrags. Penta then catches Fenix with a Wheelbarrow Rollup and locks Fenix in an Ankle Lock. Fenix rolls through to break the hold and then attempts a backdrop but Penta stops and goes for the Fear Factor, but Fenix blocks it and misses a Hook Kick.
Penta attempts a Sling Blade but Fenix blocks it and goes for the Springboard Cutter but Penta blocks it and then kicks the hell out of his brother repeatedly. Fenix counters one of the kicks with a rollup and then goes for a Roudn Kick only for Penta to roll him up. They exchange a series of nearfalls and then get into each other’s faces.
Fenix and Penta break out into a chop contest until Fenix shoves his brother and then goes for a springboard move right into a Superkick for a nearfall. Fenix rolls to the apron and Penta grabs him for a Fear Factor but Fenix blocks it and kicks Penta to the floor. Fenix hits an unreal Double Spring Tornillo onto Penta on the floor!
Fenix attempts to do the Running Punt on the ropes but Penta shakes the ropes causing Fenix to crash and burn. Penta starts working on his brother’s legs with a bunch of kicks and then he chokes Fenix in the ropes. Fenix rolls out to the floor and Penta traps his arm against the ring post and kicks it before tossing him into the barricade.
Penta turns Fenix’s chest in hamburger meat with a few more nasty chops and then goes to chop him again but Fenix ducks and Penta’s hand hits the ring post. Fenix hits a Roundhouse Kick and then charges at him but Penta backdrops him only for Fenix to use the ropes and the apron to do a headstand and then eat a disgusting Superkick from Penta.

Penta lifts Fenix up to the top and kicks him before climbing up with him. Fenix fights him off and hits a Super Flying Headscissors off the top! Penta hits a weird looking Rolling DDT move, I think it may have been a botch, for a nearfall.
Penta goes for a Powerbomb but Fenix blocks it and hits a Superkick of his own for a nearfall. Fenix puts Penta in a Wristlock and then slides through the rope and slams Penta into the turnbuckles. He goes for a springboard move but Penta kicks his legs out from under him. Penta then climbs up with Fenix only to eat a Spanish Fly! 1…2…NO Penta kicks out!
Penta gets pissed off and dares his brother to hit him but Penta ducks and then catches a Rana attempt into a Powerbomb for a nearfall. They did that spot in their first match against one another in Lucha Underground. Penta does the Armbreaker on his brother! As Fenix screams in pain, Penta hesitates before telling him that he was sorry and then hits the ropes only to fly right into a Mexican Destroyer from Fenix for the pin!
Winner: Fenix via pinfall (Mexican Destroyer)

He claims he feels no pressure tonight but John Silver freaks out on him and says the entire Dark Order is under pressure. John Silver says that the entire Dark Order is going to be ringside for the TNT Title Match next week.

A video package highlights the feud between Sammy Guevara and Matthew Hardy.
Taz walks out with Team Taz and addresses that he offered Will Hobbs a spot in Team Taz and says that he better come up with a decision soon before he sicks Cage on him. Taz says that Darby Allin doesn’t deserve a shot at the TNT Title and says that Tony Khan told him that if Ricky Starks had beaten Allin a few weeks ago he would get the shot. Taz is pissed off because he says Allin cheated and asks why Allin gets everything he wants. Taz asks what about Cage and Starks.
Starks says that he has consistently showed off in AEW only to have the rug pulled out from under him. He says someone will pay for Allin stealing his title shot and that person will be Allin. He promises that when they meet again he will put Allin “in the grave” and calls him a “half face painted little bitch.”
Chris Jericho and MJF are having their steak dinner after MJF orders a well done steak, Jericho orders one medium well. MJF responds by changing his to medium and Jericho changes his to medium rare. MJF decides he wants his steak rare in that case, so Jericho says he wants his “extra bloody rare.”
Jericho questions why MJF is being so rude and then they talk about MJF joining the Inner Circle. They stop arguing when they make fun of Orange Cassidy together. MJF tells Jericho to picture them together and then they do a weird singing number together like it is an old sitcom or something.
MJF and Jericho have their steaks served and both are disgusted by how rare they are.
Dr. Britt Baker DMD (5-6) w/Rebel vs. Kilynn King (0-11)

The Butcher & The Blade (10-5) w/Allie vs. The Young Bucks (7-3) vs. Private Party (8-7) w/Matt Hardy vs. The Beaver Boys (1-5)
During AEW Dark Allie was reintroduced to The Butcher & The Blade as Eddie Kingston brought her back into the fold. All four teams take turns going at each other on but the Bucks seem to always end up getting the best of each in the end.
Quen takes everyone out with dropkicks and then hits a Tope Suicida onto Reynolds on one side and then Silver on the other before hitting a Somersault Plancha onto one of the Bucks. Butcher and Blade cut Quen off from doing another dive but Quen ends up hitting a Shooting Star Press on Blade anyway for a nearfall.
