Cody & Brandi are expecting


After the match, Team Taz came out to "congratulate" Cody on he and Brandi's pregnancy. Starks asked where this congratulations was when he and Cage made Cody and Darby Allin, who was watching from above, their sons. Taz said that Cage would whoop Allin's ass. Team Taz walked to the ring to attack Cody, but the lights went out and Sting made his entrance, bat in hand. He stared down Team Taz and then the segment just ended.


They advertised Sting's appearance tonight as "Sting Speaks," so unless that happens later, that segment will come across as treading water from prior weeks.


Miro was interviewed. It was revealed that Miro injured three AEW staff members and that he is being fined $75,000. Miro said that his problem with Orange Cassidy is that he doesn't care about all the important things like subscribers and ratings. He said that he'd face Sonny Kiss on AEW Dark next week, and Kip and Penelope would announce their wedding date on next week's Dynamite. 


Huh?

Eddie Kingston came out to the ring and said he doesn't care about anyone in attendance. He's here to address his enemies. Kingston's first enemy is God, because he's still living. His second enemy is PAC, who he said went back home to nurse his injuries and that his career is done. He was about to talk about Lance Archer, but Archer immediately ran out to beat him down.

Butcher, Blade, and Bunny ran out to stop Archer's attack, but then the Lucha Bros arrived alongside PAC. They all beat down Kingston, Butcher, and Blade. Fenix took out Butcher and Blade with a tornillo. Archer was about to chokeslam Kingston, but PAC kicked Kingston out of his grip, and they exchanged words, but they and the Lucha Bros stood tall.

Dustin Rhodes was inteviewed by Dasha. Regarding Evil Uno's offer from last week, Dustin said that "7" is still a bad idea. He said that every single member of Dark Order will fall, and next week, he'll face Uno.

Inner Circle (Chris Jericho, MJF, Jake Hager, Sammy Guevara, Santana, & Ortiz) defeated Best Friends (Chuck Taylor & Trent?), Top Flight (Darius Martin & Daunte Martin), & Varsity Blondes (Griff Garrison & Brian Pillman Jr.)

This was originally a 14-man tag with Wardlow and Brandon Cutler added, but Wardlow couldn't make the show due to a family conflict. Orange Cassidy joined commentary for the match, but he didn't say much.

No Disqualification match: Kenny Omega (w/ Don Callis) defeated Joey Janela (w/ Sonny Kiss)

**1/2 Thumbs In the middle pointing up


After the match, Callis said that there are no more unanswered questions after the AEW Title eliminator tournament. The Death Triangle came out and PAC said that there was unfinished business, as Fenix never lost to Omega because he couldn't compete due to injury.

Callis said that wrestlers don't tell the world champion what to do, but PAC had already spoken to Tony Khan, and on December 30, Omega will defend the AEW Championship against Fenix. Callis and Omega berated them as the show closed.
