Hangman and Kaz look to be firing up a clinic. Kaz manages to sunset flip Adam for a two count but begins feeding him knees and rolls through with an impressive neckbreaker. He doesn’t break grip.

MJF vs. Shawn Dean
The bell rings and MJF immediately pokes Dean in the eye to turn it into his Salt of The Earth finisher. Immediate tap-out.
Max gets on the mic. He says he’s an honest man, but Moxley isn’t. Right now he should be undefeated. Right now he should be the AEW World Champion. “You’re a loser” chant starts. From here on out, he wants to be known as MJF: The Undefeated, Undisputed, Uncrowned World Champion of All Elite Wrestling. He makes “smooth-brained moron” Justin Roberts to officially introduce him as such. He says the going trend is to form a stable cause it seems to happen every week. Maybe it’s about time to for this “Lone Wolf” to form a “Wolfpac.” He basically says he’s gonna weigh out the options, but either way, he’s better than you, and you know it.
After this, Taz breaks down Ricky Starks’ absolutely sweet finisher, the Rochambeau (and that spear too).
Next we see Eddie Kingston with the Lucha Bros. Kingston once again notes that he was never eliminated from the Casino Battle Royale. He tells Penta and Fenix that they are a family. Usually families go out to dinner, but they go out for violence. They are agents of chaos. Eddie prompts The Butcher and Blade to do such. They pull talent from the crowd and begin attacking everyone. They clear house. Eddie says every one of them is “ready” except for Blade who Kingston tells it’s time for him to get “his house in order.”

Out comes The Human Suplex Machine. Taz says they made a hell of deal that this alliance lays upon the stipulation that when Lance Archer wins against Moxley, he and Cage will face off for that championship. Archer grabs the mic and says that they share mutual enemies and it's going to end up with The Machine and The Murderhawk clashing.
Mox’s music hits and as he steps down from the stands. In a reflection of last week, a “fan” grabs hold of Moxley and it’s Ricky Starks. He and Brian Cage attack the champ. Who comes in for the save but the freshly-signed Will Hobbs to even the playing field. Sure enough, he reveals that Hobbs is one of his two partners. The other? Stark’s best bud: Darby Allin.
