Excalibur discusses Allin and Janela’s history against one another on the independents as they come to the ring. Janela and Allin start things off with some mat wrestling but quickly devolves into a brawl as Janela decks Allin with an Uppercut in the corner. Allin responds with a Springboard Lucha Armdrag followed by a Shotgun Dropkick that causes Janela to fall through the ropes onto the apron.
Allin attempts a Suplex off the apron but Janela counters into a Front Suplex onto the apron. Janela follows up with a Tope Suicida and then rolls Allin back in the ring for two. Janela decides to ground Allin and work over his back and arm. He puts Allin in a Hammerlock combined with a Fish Hook and Bodyscissors at the same time. Janela dives off the top with a Flying Axe Handle but when he goes back up top Allin shoves him off causing Janela to be clotheslined on the top rope.
Allin hits a Shotgun Dropkick sending Janela crashing into the corner. Janela retreats to the apron but ALlin grabs him and starts slamming his arm across the top rope causing Janela to crash to the floor. Allin hits a Heat Seeking Missile under the middle rope onto Janela sending him crashing into the barricade. Allin rolls Janela back in the ring and gets a nearfall before locking him in a Fujiwara Armbar.
Janela manages to get to the ropes and bites them to break the hold but Allin actually kicks the bottom rope into Janela’s face. Allin goes for a Springboard Coffin Drop but Janela catches him in midair with a German Suplex followed by a Superkick for two. Janela gets distracted by looking down at the TNT Title, which allows Allin to gain his composure and connect with a series of strikes.
Allin hits a Flipping Stunner for two and then the two exchange nearfalls with backslides and rollups. Janela ends the sequence with Spike Piledriver for a nearfall. Janela lifts Allin up to the top rope and attempts a Superplex but Allin elbows Janela’s injured arm and hits a Super Code Red off the top for a close two. Allin hits a Hammerlock STO and then the Coffin Drop for the pin.

Excalibur points out that Team Taz threatened to interfere but never showed up.
Footage of KENTA attacking Moxley last week is shown as Excalibur explains that KENTA is a New Japan star and is the No. 1 contender to Moxley’s IWGP U.S. Heavyweight Title.
Backstage Jon Moxley says that KENTA has been calling him out for months from across an ocean. He says that KENTA finally realized that cheap talk is finally over and if he wants the title – which he lifts up over his shoulder – he’s going to have to take it from him. Moxley says that when they face each other on Feb. 26 he is going to dump KENTA on his head but tonight is unsanctioned and tonight will be “just for fun.”
Sammy Geuvara drags a camera man into the Inner Circle locker room and tells the other guys he needs some time alone with him and MJF agrees. Sammy tells MJF he knows that he is trying to take over the Inner Circle but MJF says he thought that Sammy was just being petty and jealous of the fact that Jericho favors him over Sammy now. MJF says that he believes now that it’s not just jealousy but the truth is Sammy hates Jericho because he feels like he should be Inner Circle’s front man and he is the one that really wants to take over the group. Sammy mockingly says, “yeah, I want to take over the Inner Circle is that what you wanted to hear” and MJF starts laughing revealing he was recording Sammy on his phone. Sammy snatches the phone and breaks it before hitting MJF.
As the Nightmare Family come to the ring Brock Anderson – Arn’s son – is shown at ringside and Excalibur reveals that he is training to wrestle.
The Nightmare Family (Lee Johnson & Cody Rhodes) (0-0 as team) w/Arn Anderson vs. Cezar Bononi & “Pretty” Peter Avalon (1-0 as team)

Winners: Nightmare Family via pinfall (rollup)
The rest of the Nightmare Family comes out to celebrate with Johnson getting his first win. Tony Schiavone asks Johnson about finally getting a win but Johnson says he doesn’t have many words for him. He mentions that he was 0-29 before tonight and says that his trainers showed him that if he does the work it eventually pays off. He says the Rhodes Family is his family and they did this for him.
Backstage, the Bucks are approached by the Good Brothers and they argue about the Battle Royal last week. Matt calls them idiots and says if they won they were going to pick the Good Brothers to be their opponents. Gallows says they didn’t mean to mess them up and their real heat needs to be with the Inner Circle and talks about MJF and Jericho taunting them. Matt says they don’t want to wait until the PPV to defend their titles and challenges PNP and says they will put the titles on the line. Good Brothers offer a ‘too sweet’ but Matt says they will do it off camera only for Nick to accept it.
Backstage Adam Page once again reiterates he isn’t going to form a team with Matt Hardy, but Hardy interrupts him and says that they are special together. Matt asks Page to at least let him take Page out and party. He says the drinks are on him and Page enthusiastically accepts. The Dark Order and Page run into each other and awkwardly say they were both just going the other way.
“The Bastard” PAC (2-0) w/Rey Fenix vs. “The Hollywood Hunk” Ryan Nemeth (1-1)
PAC hits a Snap Suplex followed by a Flying Elbow in the corner. PAC goes to the top and hits a Missile Shotgun Dropkick sending Nemeth flying across the ring. PAC talks trash to Nemeth causing him to try and fight back with elbows only for PAC to obliterate him with a bunch of kicks.

Back in the ring, PAC puts the boots to Nemeth in the corner. He goes to the top and hits the Black Arrow before locking Nemeth in the Brutalizer for the submission.

A highlight of the wedding ceremony from last week is shown. Miro says he is going to put Chuck Taylor and Orange Cassidy in the hospital next to Trent Barretta. OC sarcastically asks what they thought was going to happen and Taylor laughs before saying, “obviously… Orange Cassidy was going to pop out of a wedding cake.”
Chris Jericho apparently doesn’t know about MJF getting hit by Sammy. MJF walks up with his ribs taped and says Sammy sucker punched him and he thinks his ribs are broken.
The Inner Circle (Chris Jericho & MJF) (2-0) w/Wardlow vs. The Acclaimed (3-0)

Sammy Guevara comes out after the match and Jericho asks him what is going on with MJF. Sammy says he told Jericho back in December that if one more thing happened with MJF he was done and so he’s out there to tell him he’s done. Jericho asks him what he means and Sammy says he’s quitting the Inner Circle. All the members – other than MJF – try to talk him out but he leaves the ring.
Alex Marvez approaches Guevara in the parking lot and Guevara says he needs time to refocus and time away from AEW.
Hardy and Page are shown drinking together but Hardy is actually pouring the drinks out, while Page downs his. Hardy says he could make Page the No. 1 wrestler in AEW and make him richer than his wildest dreams and hands him a contract. Page, who is slurring his words, and says he thinks Hardy is right and signs it.
*EDIT* Upon further review, Page actually switched the papers as Hardy was looking away.
