AEW Tournament of Champions Semi-Final Match: Jon Moxley vs. Sammy Guevara
Wild Thing hits! Jon Moxley makes his way out from the crowd as they go nuts as Tony, Excalibur and William Regal heap praise upon both competitors. The crowd is going nuts and Moxley looks absolutely pumped up as he raises three fingers to the camera.
“The epitome of sports entertainers.” Sammy Guevara comes out and the crowd is none to pleased. Sammy is outfitted in a Macho Man-esque Pink and Yellow combo as Moxley pounds the corner in anticipation. Sammy is also on his own tonight with no Tay Melo.
Both men start off trash talking and Sammy immediately bails. Both men lock up and Moxley gains control with a side headlock and wrist lock for a one count. Test of strength in the corner, and Sammy comes back with a flurry of forearms and boots to Moxley in the corner. Moxley explodes out the corner and Sammy FLIES from a lariat. Chop battle ensuing now and it looks like Mox has the upper hand and even lays down in the ring mocking Sammy’s chops. Moxley with an Irish whip that is reversed and Sammy comes back with a Tope Con Hiro and a flipping senton! Sammy then throws Moxley into the steps and starts stomping a mudhole in Moxley’s face, and Sammy then hits a front facing curb stomp into the stairs!
Back from commercial, Sammy has Moxley on the apron looking for a piledriver but Moxley reverses into the Dirty Deeds on the apron!! Sammy looks completely out of it, glazed eyes and all. Bryce Remsberg counting Sammy and he’s in at 7. Mox with a series of lariats in the corner now and has Sammy up top and rakes his back and then bites him! MASSIVE Butterfly Suplex off the top rope!!!

Sammy misses a Swanton and Mox with a crucifix/seatbelt like pin for a two count! Sammy with elbow shots now and Mox comes back with some heavy strikes; but Sammy counters with a knee! Moxley is spun around, Sammy has him up; but Moxley avoids the GTH and hits the Death Rider!!! 1…2…3!!!
WINNER: Jon Moxley
We attempt cut to the back where apparently MJF has a microphone as we go to commercial.
MJF’s music hits and the crowd goes nuts and he immediately yells to cut the music and for Albany to keep their fat mouths shut. MJF does not look happy. Seven days he hasn’t slept since he and Mox laid eyes on each other and it’s because he saw the look of a man who has no fear and how much that pisses him off! He says he isn’t the same kid as before because he isn’t playing a character now Jon; you are. Walking around all tough, big bad Moxley; you’re as bad as these people! MJF says he read his book and loved the part about childhood; educated, poor white trash scumbag from the sticks! He mentions how Moxley got his bike stolen and was bullied, and says it forced him to make a front and it’s why the morons of Albany chant your name! He says Moxley is the same poor, scared little boy from the slums of Cincinnati and now he can drown his sorrows in alcohol like a worthless drunk! He gives credit for Moxley for going through rehab but “my brain is far more dangerous than your disease. Bad things happen when you get in MJF’s way, so Moxley take that vacation, skip Arthur Ashe, because you can’t win my title!” He keeps laying in to Moxley saying “Your demons said they would take it all away, and if you don’t tread lightly you’ll find out I am that demon and I am a demon you can’t slay.”
MJF talks about Stokely’s group and how they helped him. He referred to them as a faction on retainer. They are called the Firm now. Out comes Hathaway flanked by Page, Morrissey and the like. Stokely with a mic now, saying he flew from Orlando to New York to meet MJF, saying he wanted to quit before Stokely decided “It’s time you get what you want.” He built this retainer as an insurance policy for MJF and admits that he isn’t a publicist or a manager or no damn assistant. He’s a friend, just a friend with some connections. Everything has been a hustle and a con since Double or Nothing; Stokely says “The blackest berries have the sweetest juice”, basically saying the more gossip you have the more power you have. He gives Morrissey a hug and he looks none to pleased. He goes through dapping up all the guys in the ring and singles out Lee Moriarty and says he should challenge for the Pure Championship. An Ass Boys chant breaks out as he gets to the Gunn Club. Ethan Page gets a favorable reaction from the crowd; he says he wants to represent Canada and win the All Atlantic Championship and bring it home to a great nation like Canada. He ends the promo saying “Either you run with us or run from us.”
Video package about an open challenge from Jungle Boy and it’s accepted by Jay Lethal! Sonjay is going nuts here!

Lethal with a sickening backbreaker on the turnbuckle!!!
Back from the break sees Lethal in control with a whip in the corner and Jungle Boy crumbles. Lethal is definitely targeting that injured back but Jungle Boy comes back with an explosive clothesline as both men are down. Both men on their knees as they exchange forearms, chops and various strikes as they get back to their feet; flying elbow by Jungle Boy! Looking for a suplex but his back gives out! Lethal going for the Lethal Injection but countered by a huge lariat into a brainbuster!! 1…2…Kickout! Both men up top and Lethal with a huge Russian Leg Sweep from the middle turnbuckle! 1…2…NO! Jungle Boy just gets his shoulder up. Lethal again goes for Lethal Injection but counters into a Killswitch, but Lethal shakes him off into a Lethal Combination and hits a tope right after! Lethal back in and up top now and a massive elbow drop! 1…2…NO!!!! Massive kick out by Jungle Boy, and immediately gets the Snare Trap!

Video package about Darby Allin participating in the Nitro Circus on what appears to be a Motor-Trike, but it cuts to Matt Hardy telling him he needs to raise the bar even more.

Now that’s over it is time to open a new chapter in the book of Hobbs and it starts tonight. Ricky Starks makes his way through the crowd! Ricky evades security and gets in the ring and clocks Hobbs with the microphone! Hobbs bails as they play Ricky’s music as he poses in the ring.
