“The American Dragon” Bryan Danielson vs. “Azucar” Rocky Romero w/Orange Cassidy
Dragon and Romero trained together at NJPW’s LA Dojo in the early 2000s and have faced each other and teamed together countless times in New Japan and in ROH in the past. Danielson and Azucar shake hands at the bell. Best Friends have been asked to join CHAOS by Kazuchika Okada, which is mentioned as they come to the ring. Romero is a former multi time IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Tag Team Champion with Trent of the Best Friends. Danielson and Romero start off with the sort of chain wrestling you would expect from these two.
Danielson runs Romero over and goes to work on his leg with a series of kicks and elbows. Romero manages to catch Danielson by a surprise with an Armbar but Danielson quickly gets to the ropes to break the hold. Danielson takes Romero down with a Waistlock Takeover but Romero fights back to his feet and backs Dragon into the corner where he throws a series of elbows.
Romero whips Danielson into the opposite corner but he back flips over Romero and then grabs him in a waistlock only for Romero to send him flying through the ropes to the floor. Cassidy taunts Danielson on the outside allowing Romero to hit a Tope Suicida on Dragon. Back in the ring, Romero climbs up top and dives onto Danielson’s arm with a stomp. Romero and Danielson exchange chops and kicks that Dragon gets the better of. Romero dares Danielson to keep kicking him, so Danielson drags him to the middle of the ring and locks him in a Romero Special.
Danielson attempts to transition into a Dragon Sleeper but Romero manages to roll over and grab the ropes only for Dragon to hit him with a series of knees and kicks. Danielson charges at Romero but Romero catches him with an elbow and then a Springboard Swinging DDT. Matt Hardy is sitting front row and he is shown taunting Cassidy. Romero hangs Dragon up in the ropes and nails him with strikes as he is trapped in the ropes. Romero then hits a Springboard Missile Dropkick sending Danielson crashing to the floor.
Romero leaps off the ring steps with a beautiful Diving Rana! In the ring, Romero hits a Sliced Bread for two. Romero hits a series of clotheslines in the corner but as he went for a third one Danielson kills him with a Roaring Elbow and then a Bridging German Suplex for two. Danielson lifts Rocky up to the top rope and climbs up with him for a Super Back Suplex but Romero counters in midair with a Splash for two.

Danielson and Romero exchange strikes but Romero catches Dragon in a Flying Armbar out of nowhere! Danielson reverses the hold into a Kneebar! Romero reverses the hold into a Cross Armbreaker only for Dragon to counter right back into an Ankle Lock. Romero once again counters right back into the Cross Armbreaker! Danielson manages to roll over into a pin for two.

Romero goes for the Sliced Bread but Danielson blocks it and then starts stomping Romero in the face before going for the Labell Lock. Romero blocks it, so Danielson pulls a page out of Konnan’s book and puts him in the Tequila Sunrise for the submission!
Winner: Danielson via submission (Tequila Sunrise)
The Inner Circle comes out for an interview with Schiavone but Men of the Year and ATT attack them as they are walking down the ramp. Junior dos Santos hits a brutal body shot to Sammy Guevara as the others hold him and then they throw Santana into the ring steps. Santos is walking around with a kendo stick blasting members of the The Inner Circle. Andre Arlovski hits Jericho with a trashcan lid.
Men of the Year pull out a table and they lift Jericho up onto Lambert’s shoulders as he Super Bombs Jericho through the table! Scorpio Sky grabs a microphone and says this is just a piece of what they can do and they’ll get the whole thing at Full Gear. Ethan Page says they aren’t just going to win, they are going to make sure Lambert pins Jericho. Lambert then puts Jericho in the Walls of Jericho as Sky forces Jericho’s hand to tap out.
(A great beat down here. Dan Lambert is already a heat magnet but them thoroughly beating the hell out of the babyfaces just puts more heat on this match going into the PPV. Also, Lambert giving the history of the Boston Crab as he had Jericho in it was hilarious.)
Jay, Conti and Rosa are wearing matching purple gear. Rosa and Baker start things off countering each other for the first 30 seconds or so. Baker tags Rebel and she attacks Rosa but eats a Hip Toss and a dropkick from the lady from the Graveyards of Mexico. Rosa hits a Quesadora Facebuster and tags Jay.

Backstage, Cole introduces The Bucks to Bobby Fish who he says he’s done for a very long time. The Bucks say they know Fish very well but Matt Jackson makes a comment about there not being any “dispute, this is the era of the Elite.” The Bucks say if Cole vouches for him, then he’s cool.
(They’re obviously planting the seeds for an eventual Elite vs. Cole/Fish/???? showdown in the future. I love the little things here and there without shoving it in your face.)

Tony Schiavone hosts the contract signing between Hangman Page and Kenny Omega. The Dark Order and The Elite have been forced to leave the arena. Hangman says that after all this time he doesn’t know what there is left to say and the sooner he signs this contract the sooner he gets to Full Gear to whip Omega’s ass. He signs the contract and hands it over to Omega.
Omega starts to sign but stops and says he wishes he could share the excitement that Page and the fans have but he’s actually a little sad. He says they were like family at one point and says everything in AEW was meant for Page but the Elite always had to pick Page up and put him back out there because of Page’s insecurities and failures. Omega says he always saw a little bit of himself in Page but he was wrong and Page is a disappointment.
Page says he might be wrong about his insecurities and Omega reminds him that he once had a partner he had his own insecurities about (Kota Ibushi). Page says that now after everything he may have surpassed that partner. Page says that Omega was always afraid of him and Omega always picked him up and tried to keep him from failing because he knew that he would become what Omega became.
Omega says he cared about Page and that he just wanted to make sure Page reached his full potential and offers a handshake to him. He tells Page that they should kill this beef at the PPV and Page accepts the handshake. Omega mockingly says he’s proud of Page and then the camera man hits Page from behind revealing that it’s Don Callis. Omega signs the contract in Page’s blood.
