Scorpio Sky came out with Page, but Page sent him to the
back. Mox looks like hes in fantastic condition after
The crowd was hugely behind Moxley. Mox took Page down with
chops and back elbow, then mauled him in the corner with
forearms. Page came back with a mule kick in the corner and
his tremendous flying shoulder sent Moxley to the floor. On
the floor, they brawled around the table and broke it.
Breaking the table six minutes into the show is some kind of
record, even for AEW. Moxley threw Jericho into the
barricade, then back in the ring.
As Moxley reentered the ring, Page caught his knee tied up
in the ropes. Page held up Moxley in the ropes in a double
underhook and spun him into an innovative backbreaker.
Moxley charged at Page in the corner, but Page ducked and
Moxley when shoulder first into the corner, then fell to the
floor. Page dominated Moxley on the floor and the show went
to a split-screen break.
Back from the break, Page had Mox up for the crucifix
powerbomb, but Mox slide down and caught Page with a go
behind for a near fall. Moxley followed up with a trio of
German suplexes. Moxley and Page exchanged forearms, and
Moxley got the better of that exchange. Page missed a boot
and Moxley hit a stiff lariat. Page escaped a Paradigm Shift
and countered with a twisting brainbuster for a near fall.
Page locked in a single leg crab but Moxley easily got the
ropes.Page charged at Moxley, but Moxley lowbridged Page. Moxley
followed up with a tope suicidia. Moxley went to the top,
but Page caught him up there, and powerslammed Moxley off
the middle ropes for two. Moxley countered the pin attempt
with a crucifix for two. When Page got his shoulder up,
Moxley just destroyed Page with elbows and knee strikes,
quickly locked in a bulldog choke, and Page passed out.
Moxley got the win by knockout.
Post-match, Page tried to confront Moxley, who dropped him
with a kick to the gut and the Paradigm Shift.
Very good comeback match for Moxley, and Page more than held
And then, while Moxley made his way to the back, Bryan
Danielson (not seen since his unsuccessful World Title
challenge on January 5th) met Moxley at the exit, applauding
him for his victory.

challenge of the The Gunn Club. Christian Cage will be out
for a while it seems, selling the attack from Wednesday.
Trent Beretta (w/Orange Cassidy) defeated Nick Jackson (w/
Matt Jackson & Brandon Cutler) (13:57)
Beretta is still giving Wheeler Yuta the cold shoulder. (All
the Best Friends came out with Beretta, but only Cassidy
accompianed him to the ring.)Even though Trent and Nick have shared the ring 50 times,
this is their first one-on-one match.
Beretta caught Nick coming off the ropes with a springboard
and turned it into a Northern Lights suplex for a near fall.
Jackson dodged a charging Beretta, who got tied up in the
ropes. Jackson then dropped Beretta with a hangmans
neckbreaker that sent Beretta to the floor, and Nick
followed up by kicking Beretta in the back of the neck.
Back from a long commercial break, Nick went for a senton
atomico but Beretta got his knees up. Beretta floored Nick
with a clothesline and followed up with a deadlift German
suplex. A running knee from Beretta got a near fall. The
fight went to the floor, and Beretta nailed Nick with a
spear. Back in the ring, Beretta hit a backdrop suplex and
spinning DDT for another near fall. Nick used referee Rick
Knox as a distraction to set up Beretta for a German suplex,
but Beretta came back with his own German suplex and both
guys were down.
Nick went to the apron and hit a springboard destroyer for a
near fall. Nick and Beretta exchanaged forearms, and Nick
came out of the corner with a spinning kick. Nick followed
up with a kneestrike in the corner and a bulldog. He went
for a superkick, but Trent avoided it and delivered a half-
and-half suplex. Nick hit the superkick, but Trent came back
with a lariat and a stuff piledriver for two.They rolled out of the ring to the ramp. Beretta went for a
piledriver, but Nick backdropped out of the move. Nick then
hit Beretta with a senton atomico on the ramp. Nick rolled
him back in the ring and then hit a 450 splash for two. Nick
hit a superkick, but Beretta countered a second superkick
attempt into the Strong Zero for the pinfall. Another very
good match, although the match felt like it was missing
something (maybe due to the long commercial break?).
--Another Thunder Rosa/Mercedes Martinez promo.
HOOK defeated Serpentico (1:11)
Serpentico has this gimmick where streamers shoot out from
his jacket, and as soon as he did this Hook destroyed him.
Hook buried knees into Serpentico's gut an took him down
with judo throws. Hook got a double wristlock takedown and
Serpentico got to the ropes. Hook hit an overhead belly to
belly and locked in Redrum and Serpentico quickly tapped
out. Hook kept the choke on for a bit after the submission.
The crowd loved everything Hook did here.
After the match, QT Marshall came out to run down Hook for
attacking Serpentico before the bell and keeping his choke
on after the bell. Hook suplexed Marshall on the ramp,
walked over him and left.
Hook is a star. I look forward to him destroying QT Marshall

Jade Cargill (w/ "Smart" Mark Sterling) defeated Anna Jay
(w/ John Silver) for the TBS Championship (8:43)
Cargill countered Jay going for a crossbody into a fallaway
slam. Jay caught Cargill with a rollup for a near fall.
Cargill floored Jay with a clothesline Jay rolled to the
floor, where Silver and Sterling got into it. Sterling
threatened to sue Silver. Jade made the mistake of getting
into a posedown with Silver. This allowed Jay to floor her
with a running forearm and get the advantage and the show
took its last split-screen break.
During the split-screen, Cargill nailed an overhead belly to
belly and then kipped up in an awesome spot. After the
break, Jay and Cargill locked in the Queenslayer sleeper,
but Jay was standing on the apron, and Cargill broke the
hold by dropping down and guillotining Anna against the top
rope. Jay took control with a series of kicks and a
flatliner. Jay went for the Queenslayer, but Sterling
distracted her. Silver hit Sterling with a brainbuster on
the floor, and Jay caught Cargill with a backslide for a
near fall. Cargill nailed the pump kick and went for the
Jaded Slam, but Jay slid out and locked in the Queenslayer
in a very slick spot. I almost thought Jay might win it
there, but Cargill backed Jay into the ropes to break.
Jay then locked the Queenslayer in the corner while standing
on the middle ropes for leverage, but Cargill broke free and
went for a powerslam. Jay slid out of the pwerslam attempt
and went for a leg lariat in the corner. Cargill caught her
and powered her up into a one armed powerbomb out of the
corner. Cargill then delivered the Jaded Slam and got the
