Baker and Shida exchanged a few kicks and shoves before Shida took to manage and forced the dentist to take a breather backyard the ring. Baker sooner or later grew to become the tables and employed some heel strategies to preserve her opponent on the defensive. Shida made a comeback with a little help from the wrestlers who have been surrounding the ring. 

After the break, Baker received a bloody nostril from one of Shida’s stiff strikes. The dentist used to be bleeding profusely as she tried to follow her trademark submission. She tried to put on a rubber glove, but Shida was once in a position to counter into a near-fall. Shida scored the win with a going for walks knee to the face after fending off Baker’s excellent efforts.

Omega and Nakazawa can also be first-class friends, however Chuck Taylor and Trent are The Best Friends, and they had Orange Cassidy at ringside to lower back them up. Omega and Taylor began for their teams with a trade of basic holds and counters. It didn’t take long before each duo started the usage of comedic double-team spots. A lot of time used to be dedicated to developing funny moments earlier than it ended with Best Friends scoring an upset victory.

Formerly Luke Harper alis Brodie Lee was out next for a squash match towards a man via the title of Lee Johnson. This used to be precisely what you would expect it to be the Exalted One destroyed the younger man and bought the win with a vicious clothesline.

The Chairman took manage early and cornered The American Nightmare for some chops to the chest. Cody made a rapid comeback, however a neglected moonsault put Spears returned in the driver’s seat. Other than a few bursts of offence from Cody, Spears dominated most of the healthy after the first of two breaks. He ended up hitting his C4 finisher to put Cody through a table at ringside. After he recovered, The American Nightmare put him in the Figure-Four to get the win.  

Even with two Cross Rhodes, it’s STILL not enough to put the #AEW Chairman way!
