Private Party vs FTR
No sooner do we get a hookup when quickly, Cash drags Marq back to the FTR corner, and all four men are in the ring and we go split screen. We get a recap of FTR attacking Ricky Morton for the slap he gave Tully last week on split screen, and the referee takes control of the match, making sure that we go back to just two men in the ring.
When they start up again, Cash is working with Marq. Cash holds him in a headlock until they run the ropes. They trade takedowns until Marq gets a drop kick on Cash. Dax comes in and gets a drop kick, and then Isiah comes in so that they can hit stereo drop kicks, and FTR rolls to the outside to collect themselves. They chat with Tully, tag on the outside.

We get an update on what is coming up tonight and that MJF may have lawyered up.
We catch up with Mox, who is in the back. Mox says the campaign of MJF is interesting. He says if MJF wants the good stuff, talk to his wife who will give a two page list of what Mox does wrong. People who talk about themselves all the time rub him the wrong way, because where he comes from, the toughest guys don’t have to say much. It makes him wonder what MJF is hiding. He says MJF is talented, thinks he’s the man to lead AEW into the future. Mox says he won’t last 25 years. I want MJF to fulfill his potential. One day he will become a world champion, but it won’t be September 5th. He lists off the things he will do to MJF, and he will be in his glory and MJF will look for a way out and find out what he has been hiding.
We get the rest of the rundown of the matches tonight. But now, we have commercials.
We come back to MJF in a neck brace. He says the homicidal maniacs all pale in comparison to Dictator Jon Moxley. And, because she listened last week, Nina is behind MJF, smiling as if this is the best thing ever. MJF describes how Mox attacked him from behind, and now, well look at him! MJF says that one day, he wanted to have a family, but he won’t be able to play with his kids because he’s mangled.
He says that the paradigm shift is an abomination, but even saying it is too much and he doubles over in pay. Nina is still smiling. MJF’s lawyer, Mark Sterling, takes over, and says that the paradigm shift is a dangerous move, and may be deadly. If Mox can attack anyone, who’s next? Wardlow? Gum guy? Nina and her beautiful smile? That’s why they put up a petition to ban the move, and it got five MILLION signatures. They have drawn up a contract that the paradigm shift is banned from the championship match at All Out. If Jon doesn’t sign it, he will be sued for everything he has, will have or ever thought of having. They will fax it to him to be signed.
And Nina is still smiling.
Back to the ring for our 8 man tag match for this week, made just to make me use bullet points to keep up. Everyone is already in the ring, so we have, on one side, The Nightmare Brothers and the Jurassic Express, and on the other side, Butcher and the Blade and the Lucha Brothers.

Pentagon knocks Blade back into Jungle Boy who rolls him up for a three count.

After, the heels continue their argument.
Eddie Kingston comes out with a microphone and berates both teams. He said they should be champions (Butcher and the Blade?), but they keep failing because they are divided. He asks them to come with him and everything they want will be theirs. They hug in the middle of the ring and Eddie winks at the camera.
It’s time for us to see what went on earlier today with Dr. Britt Baker, Penelope Ford and Kip Sabian. We go to the free weights room, where Britt stops everything because she sees that Kip and Penelope are making out. He says that exchanging saliva is the top cause of cavities, but she is going to help. She offers them free dental care for a year as long as they help her with Big Swole. Big Swole signed a contract for a match with Britt, but it doesn’t say what kind of match.
Britt says it will be a handicap match and she is inviting Penelope to join their team against Big Swole. Britt also throws in that Reba will do their makeup for a year for free. Reba is shocked by this. Penelope agrees and we go to commercial.
When we get back Tony is in the ring and goes over the Orange Cassidy vs Jericho match from last week, and since it was so big, let’s bring Cassidy out. Cassidy comes out with the Best Friends. Tony congratulates Cassidy who says….nothing.
Jericho’s music hits and business is about to pick up. Jericho comes out. Alone. Holding a bottle of something that is probably alcoholic because he looks like he’s been sleeping on a barroom floor. Jericho says he knows Cassidy is a man of few words, and he wants to get some words in. He congratulates Cassidy and reminds us he’s only been pinned three times since Dynamite started. Jericho says that while he’s embarrassed, he’s proud of Cassidy because he’s learning from Jericho. Jericho continues to put Cassidy over. He gives Cassidy a toast and before he does, he says they each have a win over each other.
So they need another match to see who’s the better man. Jericho wants to take things to another level, and since he invented the match with a ladder and a briefcase. So, he says they will have a mimosa mayhem match since Cassidy has orange juice and he has the Bubbly. Jericho then shows a video package to explain the match. At All Our on September 5th, 80 gallons of orange juice will be mixed with 500 cases of the bubbly at ringside. The only way to win is pinfall, submission or being tossed into the mimosa tank.
Does Orange Cassidy accept? Cassidy gives a thumbs up and the match is on!
Jericho says he wants the whole Inner Circle to toast him. They surround the ring, and then get up on the apron. Jericho raises his glass, the others pour their out and Jericho says “Get ’em boys”.
The Best Friends and Orange Cassidy take the beat down, and it ends with Bubbly being poured over Cassidy. It’s once again, time for commercials.
And somewhere, Nina is still smiling.

Matt yells it’s not over until Matt ends him, which means he’s a big fan of Sparky here on PWInsider!
And somewhere, Nina is still smiling.
Now, we go to the NWA Women’s champion, Thunder Rosa. She says that the fans have been asking for it, She introduces herself and she’s here to put the women’s division on the map. On All Out, she is here for the championship and challenges Hikaru Shida. I will be commenting on why its disappointing that the women’s division of AEW has to bring in someone from the outside to make their championship match at the PPV have any interest at all.
It’s time for the finale of the women’s tournament, which means Veda Scott is at the announcer’s table to join with the team, and Congratulations to her for this!

Your winner and NEW TNT champion, Mr. Brodie Lee
Lee looks like a monster here, just destroying Cody, who got in no offense. The Dark Order comes to the ring to celebrate and Tony Schiavone is there to get an interview. Lee says no one believed in him, and now, he is a problem for AEW.
Dark Order is at the top now and the championship gives the power. Cody is taken out on a stabilization board. Lee tells Tony to get out of the ring.
