No MJF This Week?
We shoot inside the ring where William Regal is standing by. He says fans won’t hear from the new AEW Champion until next week.
He says he sent MJF an email but we won’t hear about that until next week. He says that’s when MJF will be back. As soon as he finishes saying that, “Wild Thing” hits and out comes Jon Moxley.
As Mox nears the ring, Bryan Danielson sprints down and gets in between he and Regal. He pleads with Mox not to hurt Regal, pointing out he has a bad neck and bleeding of the brain. He smacks Mox and then pleads some more with him to ignore the boos and the crowd and just listen.
Danielson talks about his dads struggling in the past and tries relating it to their current situation with Regal. Mox gets in Regal’s face and says he wants only one thing from him. He tells him to run. Regal walks off as fans taunt him.

Orange Cassidy (C) vs. Jake Hager
We head back to the ring for our first match of the evening, which will be a championship contest. Out comes Jake Hager from the J.A.S. He settles in the ring and his music dies down.
Now the reigning, defending AEW All Atlantic Champion Orange Cassidy makes his way out for his fifth defense of the title. The bell sounds and we’re off-and-running with this one.
The two go nose to nose and Cassidy does his hands in the pocket, wimpy kicks routine. He tries to take Hager’s hat but Hager isn’t having it. Finally he knocks it off Hager’s head and after picking it up, everyone from the J.A.S. in Hager’s corner tries getting it, but Cassidy avoids them all.
He dives onto Hager on the floor, but Hager catches him and slams him into the steel ring post. On that note, we head to a mid-match commercial break as the match continues.
As we return from the break we see Hager is still in control of the offense. He dominates for a while but then gets hit with a big spot. Moments later, Cassidy gets a roll-up out of nowhere and gets the three-count to retain.
