A video recapped The Pinnacle vs. the Inner Circle from Stadium Stampede.
Inner Circle celebration
Jericho introduced the 2021 Stadium Stampede champions, the Inner Circle. They all were wearing matching T-shirts and vests before Jericho revealed that everyone in the audience also had a T-shirt under their chairs. He then gave Guevara a chance to speak, calling him the "hero of Stadium Stampede."
Guevara loved ending the match with a 630 onto "that idiot Shawn Spears." He used to do that move off his mom's roof. He thanked everyone and said he loved them.
Santana said it was the greatest moment in their careers. He wondered what they truly accomplished, because they still have to see the Pinnacle in the hallways and they can still compete. He said FTR tried to end their careers, so no, this Pinnacle stuff is far from over.
Hager said the Pinnacle doesn't get to say when the fight is over. He said he'd take them out again and again before challenging Wardlow to an MMA cage fight.
Jericho said that this war isn't over. When he thinks about the Pinnacle, and MJF in particular, it pisses him off. He said it was personal with MJF because of how much Blood & Guts haunts him, and he must settle the score. Everything they've done so far wasn't enough. Until he can ruin MJF's career and life like MJF tried to ruin his, this will never be over. He is going to beat MJF. The Inner Circle never forgives and never forgets.
Orange Cassidy and the Best Friends cut a video promo where Chuck and Trent called out Kenny Omega and called him a cheater for his actions at Double or Nothing. Orange said "if you think this is over, it's not."
Kenny Omega and Don Callis were asked about being accused of cheating. Callis said that instead people should be talking about the conspiracy to screw Omega out of the title.

He said he loves Jungle Boy's music, then he and Callis started singing it, leading to the next segment.

Once back, Private Party continued to beat down Christian before mocking his five-second pose. Jungle Boy finally made his way back to the apron, but Kassidy sent him back to the floor.

A video promo aired with Taz saying Hangman Page got lucky in his match against Brian Cage. Next week, Page will team up with a Dark Order member to take on Cage and Powerhouse Hobbs.
Schiavone introduced Darby Allin and Sting. He congratulated them on their win. Sting said he's had many incredible experiences in wrestling, but Double or Nothing will be a night that he never forgets. It stands up to anything he's ever done in this business. He thanked the fans for the "you still got it" chants, but Scorpio Sky and Ethan Page interrupted on the video board.
Sky said Sting was remarkable on Sunday, and Page said if Sting hadn't been there to save the day after Allin was tossed over the barricade, he might still be laying there. All Page sees is a "spineless, co-dependent b*tch." They challenged Allin to find anyone other than Sting to fight them.
Britt Baker AEW Women's Championship celebration
Nyla Rose, along with a lot of low-card wrestlers, were out there to "celebrate."
Baker said everyone had coupons for free Big Macs under their chairs, but it was a ruse – she had them. Baker said when she's on the screen, viewers can't look away. She repeated "D.M.D." before inviting Schiavone and Rebel to have a burger.
Rose knocked the burgers out of their hands and popped balloons.
Eddie Kingston was about to be interviewed about saving PAC and Penta, but they interrupted, saying they didn't want Kingston's help. Kingston said "the enemy of my enemy is my friend."
Red Velvet defeated The Bunny (w/ The Blade)
This was set up on AEW Dark: Elevation. Bunny tried to attack before the bell, but Velvet had it scouted and hit a standing moonsault for two right away. Velvet hit a scary tope suicida where she very nearly landed on her head, but she popped up and covered for another two.

The Dark Order were backstage. It's John Silver's birthday, but he's not just hungie for cake, he's hungie for gold. Unfortunately, he's not cleared, so he gave his gift – a TNT title shot – to Evil Uno.
Miro thanked God for his power and shouted out his wife for being hot. He said it doesn't make sense for Evil Uno to challenge for the title because Miro's bigger, faster, and stronger. This will be a teachable lesson for the rest of the locker room, to only come after Miro when they're sure they can survive.
Bullrope match: Dustin Rhodes defeated Nick Comoroto (w/ Aaron Solow)
Dustin and Comoroto charged at each other right away. Comoroto pressed Dustin over his head and tossed him into the ring.

Dustin used the cowbell to fight out.
Both men spilled to the floor on a clothesline attempt, where Dustin choked Comoroto with the rope. Comoroto fought out and shoved Fuego Del Sol out of the way, so Fuego hopped on Comoroto's back. Comoroto dispatched him and Solow attacked Dustin, but the camera missed it. Comoroto was busted open.
Dustin used his experience with the rope to pull Comoroto into the ring post, but Comoroto powered back by dropping Dustin onto the apron into a late commercial (only about seven minutes left in the show.)
Once back, Dustin and Comoroto were fighting on the apron as Solow set up a table at ringside. Dustin used the rope to take Comoroto down, but Comoroto avoided a kick and powerbombed Dustin through the table. He rolled Dustin into the ring but only got two on the pin attempt.
