    A fast, livid alternate of near-falls opened the bout till a severe Cody, fueled by using the beating dealt with his brother Dustin by means of Lance Archer a week ago, teed off on Janela. The Bad Boy, recognizing the probability earlier than him, answered and seized control of the contest. The combat spilt to the floor, where Cody halted his opponent’s momentum and dropped him with a Disaster Kick, then observed with a moonsault. Back inside, a superkick to Cody revived Janela but a reverse superplex put him returned down for two. The fight devolved into a slugfest, each competitor throwing wild fists as frustration set in. Cody won the upper-hand and dropped Janela with Cross Rhodes for the hard-fought victory. 

    HUGE power slam by @CodyRhodes onto @JANELABABY!

    From there, SCU’s Frankie Kazarian hit the ring for his biggest singles match in AEW to date: a non-title match with world champion Jon Moxley. Mat wrestling dominated the early moments of the match, to Kazarian’s advantage. Just as the commentary team brought up the champion’s knack for making the opposition wrestle his style of match, the fight spilled to the floor, where Mox took control as Kazarian nursed what looked to be a bad knee. 
    Back in the ring, Kazarian answered a release German suplex with a backstabber. He stayed one step ahead of Mox, cutting off everything the champ threw at him. As he has done so often over the course of his career, Moxley fought back and dropped Kazarian with the Paradigm Shift to score the win. After the match, The Dark Order’s minions hit the ring and attacked Moxley. 
    A save from SCU failed as the numbers game proved overwhelming.“The Exalted One” Brodie Lee appeared and dropped the champion. Lee said he was answering the bounty Moxley put on his own head last week. He proceeded to challenge Moxley for the title. The champ accepted, then endured another beating for his trouble.

Match No.4: QT Marshall vs. Lance Archer


    — All Elite Wrestling (@AEWrestling) May 7, 2020

A week after his partner, Dustin Rhodes, was beaten to a bloody pulp through Lance Archer, QT Marshall examined his good fortune towards The Murderhawk Monster as Jake “The Snake” Roberts watched from ringside. He did not fare nicely early as Archer dominated into the break.


Marshall delivered a huge enzuigiri, however, Archer dropped him with a shoulder block. The Blackout failed to put Marshall away, so the EBD Claw finished him. After the match, Britt Baker hopped the guardrail and delivered a DDT to Brandi Rhodes, who had thrown her shoe into the stands. In the ring, Roberts produced a snake and sprawled it on the unconscious physique of AEW’s chief brand officer whilst Jim Ross denounced the connotations of the motion on commentary.

    Hardy paired off with Jericho, fighting up the ramp and into the backstage area while Omega and Guevara battled in the ring Jericho returned, joining Guevara for a two-on-one beatdown until regular Hardy (in old school apparel)  returned to the fray and fired on the heels. As the fight continued, Hardy introduced a ladder, from which he drove Guevara through a table. Jake Hager appeared, broke up the pin and sent Omega into the ring post. Inner Circle regained control during the break. The fight spilt into the arena concourse, where Hardy sent Jericho into an ice machine.
     Le Champion answered with a bag of ice to the face. Omega drove Hager down with a trash can, but Guevara slowed him. Omega powerbombed Guevara into a garage door, but Jericho wiped him out with a cart. Emerging from the ice as “Damascus,” Hardy hopped in a golf cart and rammed it into Jericho, clipping him. He ran over Guevara next. Omega delivered a big moonsult off a lift, wiping out The Inner Circle. Santana and Ortiz saved Jericho from the One-Winged Angel as the numbers game proved nsurmountable. Jericho powerbombed Omega on top of the golf cart, then downed him with The Judas Effect for the win.
Well, that’s one way to use it.
