Earlier today, Jon Moxley cuts a promo backstage. He says he
tries to stay out of other peoples ways and he thought his
issues with Brian Cage were over until he started going
after Darby Allin. He said if he watched as Cage did that to
Allin it would make him a punk bitch and says speaking of
punk bitches Ricky Starks should see if he can try and
bully him tonight. He says he doesnt start fights, he ends
American Nightmare Cody Rhodes (16-1) (c) w/Arn Anderson

This is Warhorses AEW debut. He is an Indy wrestler that

Circle interrupt him and say that they are tired of what is
going on in AEW. Guevara calls Hardy a son of a bitch and
says it isnt over with him. Jericho says that OC has been
causing issues and if he wants a rematch he will give it to
him on Aug. 12 on Dynamite. Jericho demands that if he beats
OC then he has to give him $7,000 to pay for the jacket that
OC ruined a few weeks ago. Also, next week Jericho
challenges OC to a debate with a special guest moderator. He
says he wants to beat him up mentally and physically.
Earlier today, Schiavone was with FTR as they were looking
over their AEW contracts. They say they want a shot at the
tag titles and know they have to be signed to get it but
they have a special tag team expert to look over their
contract. Arn Anderson looks over their contract and he
signs off on it. As a part of the contract, Tony Khan agreed
to allow Aug. 12 be tag team appreciation night hosted by
FTR. They finally sign their contracts and Adam Page walks
in with some drinks to celebrate.

all of the other girls in AEW feel her. She says she will

draw with each woman drawing a color. The women with
matching colors will be partners.

Guerrero cuts her off and says it doesnt matter who her
partner is because that trophy is hers. Nyla draws her color

MJF is out for his State of the Business address with
Wardlow. MJF demands fans use hash tags #MJF2020 and
#NotMyChampion. MJF talks about not being spotlighted two
weeks in a row and says its because a certain individual is
afraid of being upstaged two weeks in a row. He says it is
time for a change and he mentions a certain person that
mentioned a paradigm shift in wrestling but says that
someone at the top of the card getting to do and say
whatever he wants and wrestle whoever he wants simply
because he came from a place of Titans isnt something
new. He says Moxley is not his champion.
MJF says it is time to talk about all of the negative side
effects that have occurred since Moxley won the title. He
says that wrestling is on the marquee but all he sees is
guys flipping and flying and almost dying just to try and
convince people they are good. MJF says a world champion is
supposed to lead by example and not walk around cosplaying
as another wrestler, and that is a Stone Cold fact. MJF
says that on average MJF draws higher ratings than Moxley.
MJF says that he is the guy that will lead AEW into the
future and he promises that he will not stop until they stop
glad-handing about being an alternative and become the
pinnacle of professional wrestling. MJF challenges Moxley to
a World Title match at All Out.
