When we get back we see the Best Friends arrive in Trent’s mom’s mini van. I don’t care if it’s dorky, I think that sort of thing is funny as long as no one’s mom is on a pole.
Tonight, our main event is Darby Allen vs Jon Moxley, and we get a backstage promo from Jon Moxley. He struggled with demons when he was younger, and people would try to talk him out of things. IN some cases, he should have listened, and in some, he woudln’t change a thing. He gets why Darby challenged him. But now he is the voice of reason, because he is worried about Darby’s health. He doesn’t want to be known as the man who ended Darby’s career, but he’s gotta do what he’s gotta do. He tells Darby that when it’s time to stay down, just stay down.

Cassidy says nothing.
Last question: Why does this rematch mean so much to them.
