Kenny Omega was interviewed by Alex Marvez. Asked about his thoughts on Moxley's beatdown during the contract signing, Omega recalled that one year ago, he was nursing injuries from the Moxley match. The difference now is that Moxley is being called the "best in the world." The common thread that binds Moxley and Omega is the AEW World Championship, and until Omega gets the belt, people won't consider him to be the best.
Omega implored Moxley to leave the garbage wrestling at home, challenging him to beat him based on his wrestling ability. He brought up Moxley's promo about his father last week, and said that his own father would "beat the sh*t" out of Moxley's.

Dave Meltzer likes this guy way more than me.
Before the match, Taz joined commentary.
Powerhouse Hobbs defeated Lee Johnson
Will Hobbs is now Powerhouse Hobbs. He also has new gear, a singlet that is very similar to what Taz wore as a wrestler. Hobbs easily dispatched Johnson to the floor and taunted the ringside wrestlers. Back in the ring, Hobbs hit a falling powerslam for the squash victory.

Taz grabbed a microphone and told Hobbs to go celebrate. He complained that the FTW championship is not officially recognized by AEW and said that he wouldn't leave until the title meant something. Taz continued to complain until his microphone was cut off before demanding that Justin Roberts give him his microphone.
Cody Rhodes, with his producer's headset on, walked out. He said that Taz was wasting time and announced that next week Hobbs and Ricky Starks would face Cody and Darby Allin. Taz said that wasn't enough. Cody agreed to talk to his superiors about it, but Taz goaded him with references to WWE corporate speak. That pissed off Cody, who asked Taz why Taz's son was training with Cody.
Taz dropped the microphone and told Cody that he had gone too far. He looked like he was walking off, but turned back around and choked Cody out with the Taz-mission. The Nightmare Family made the save, then Taz's son appeared and walked off with his father.
I have no idea where it leads, but that was an incredibly entertaining segment. Everyone played their part, but Taz in particular was fantastic
Eddie Kingston was interviewed by Marvez. He was asked about the reformation of the Death Triangle. Kingston said he's not mad, just really disappointed. He expected this from Fénix and PAC, but not Penta.
Jon Moxley interrupted and stared him down. Kingston said that the backstage attack wasn't him, and Moxley walked off.

Miro and Kip Sabian were with Penelope Ford to debut their new video game segment. Orange Cassidy walked up and Miro snapped, but the Best Friends were outside. Both teams brawled, and the Best Friends powerbombed Sabian into a port-a-john. Miro knocked down the camera to end the segment.
This was stupid
