Main Event

Match 5.  Tag Team Champions, The Good Brothers, Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson and Impact World Champion, Kenny Omega (with Don Callis) VS Sami Callihan, Eddie Edwards and Frankie Kazarian

Callis goes does the most over the top intro for Kenny Omega ever.  These intros are epic.  Omega again argues with the same women as last week at ringside.  Funny stuff.  It looks like she wants to clock him.

Frankie rallies his team on the outside. They are an uneasy alliance to say the least.  It wasn’t long ago that Sami Callihan was the talk of the wrestling world for hitting Eddie with a steal bat in the face, causing severe damage to his face.  Frankie does well to ready his team and they attack The Elite and they flee the ring.

Sami starts the match with Omega.  Callihan hits a suplex and tags Frankie, who hits several moves off the ropes, much to the delight of the Impact Zone.  Gallows kicks Frankie in the back as he bounces the ropes.  Omega hits a high knee that spills Kazarian into their corner, as we go to break.

Back from break, Kazarian is still getting worked over in the corner.  Gallows and Anderson take turns tagging in and pounding him.  Frankie eventually escapes and Eddie tags in with Anderson.  Eddie hits the Kojima chops in the corner.  Omega interferes on the outside, giving Anderson an advantage.  Anderson makes the tag to Omega.  He gets a 2 count on a few rapid elbow drops.  Gallows tags in and hits a snap suplex.  He then locks on a rear chin lock.  Eddie stands up and gets free, but Doc hits a shotgun elbow.  Anderson tags back in and they clear everyone from the apron.  The Elite then hit a triple splash on Eddie, but he kicks out at two.  Anderson misses a dive on Eddie in the corner.  Anderson recovers but Eddie is too weak and can’t make the tag.  Doc tags back in, but Eddie kicks him in the face and hits a dropkick off the top rope.  Both make a tag.  Sami and Omega are in.  Sami lays in Stone Cold boots to the corner to the head.  Doc makes the save.  Omega hits a V Trigger of Frankie who entered.  The Elite then hit a double neck breaker, side suplex for a two count on Sami.  Gallows and Anderson try for a Magic Killer, but Frankie breaks it up.  Eddie takes a spinebuster from Anderson.  He hesitates, trying to set up a Gun Stun, but be misses and takes an elbow and then Blue Thunder Bomb.  Sami hits a piledriver on the apron on Omega.  Eddie hits Boston Knee Party to Anderson’s face and gets the pin.

Winners.  Eddie Edwards, Frankie Kazarian and Sami Callihan

Omega is shown on the floor in bad shape.  Eddie is in the ring alone celebrating as the show appears to be over.  His team chased the Good Brothers from the arena.  W. Morrissey enters and takes Edwards out as the show ends.

    I like how from the NWA partnership we get cool segements with Mickie and Melina.

    But for the AEW partnership all we get is Kenny Omega hogging the title and them sending the blandest man in the Impact Zone, Kazarian. Help build? Still seem as bland and forgettable as he ever was.
