Danhausen… very nice. Very evil. SEE YOU SOON.

The referee ushers Bill to the back but Starks plants Dax with a piledriver of his own and covers him for the win.
Winner: Ricky Starks
Rating: ***. Nice match here but I had higher hopes for this one. Dax has been a heck of a single’s wrestler and Starks is on a roll. It wasn’t bad, just wasn’t what it was capable of being.

Claudio storms to the ring. European uppercuts the heck out of Hot Sauce. Finito.
Winner: Claudio Castagnoli
Claudio stretches Williams after the match with a cross face.
The main event is up next, as we see Omega and MJF preparing in a split-screen. Samoa Joe approaches MJF and says he could be his friend, as long as he gets his rematch. Joe said he’d never put the ultimatum on the champ, but if he finds himself in a bad way, he’s just go to scream Joe’s name… and he’ll be his friend.
Match #7. AEW World Heavyweight Championship: MJF (c) vs. Kenny Omega
Jim Ross has joined the commentary table, and it’s a big fight feel, baby! Omega has been champ just three days longer than MJF, so this is a chance to defend his streak.

Panama Sunrise by MJF! Heat Seeker by MJF and that will do it!
Winner and STILL AEW World Heavyweight Champion: MJF
Rating: ****1/2. What more can you ask for in a main event? Omega brought everything to MJF but couldn’t finish the job, mainly because he couldn’t hit the One Winged Angel. MJF’s nod to Adam Cole was great, the crowd was invested the entire way through, and it didn’t overstay it’s welcome clocking in just about 30 minutes. Outstanding professional wrestling match. Omega’s gripe can now continue with Don Callis and company.
Final Thoughts: They could have shown nothing but QTV until the main event and this show still would have been great. The main event delivered, exactly as you’d expect, further cementing MJF. The House of Black and LFI back on AEW TV is a great move, and hopefully they can make those Trios championships even more important. The rest of the show was fine but like, go out of your way to watch the main event right now. 9/10.
