THE BASTARD Pac vs. Trent: Chuck Taylor & Orange Cassidy are at ringside. They lock up and work into counters as they end in a standoff. They pick up the pace and Trent hits a back elbow. He follows with chops and Trent follows with a northern lights suplex for 2.Pac fires back whips Trent to the barricade and takes control just punishing Trent on the floor. Pac then follows with a tope. Back in and Pac heads up top and the missile dropkick connects for 2. He grounds the action, but Trent fights back to his feet and Pac unloads with strikes and a German for 2. Pac grounds things again. But Trent fires back and then gets stunned off the ropes. Orange Cassidy confronts Pac as Chuck take the ref. Pac just kicks him in the face but Trent makes the comeback with a half and half suplex.

A huge lariat follows and the tornado DDT gets 2. To the floor they go and Pac hit a brainbuster Back in and the black arrow gets a great near fall; the brutalizer finishes it. THE BASTARD Pac defeated Trent @ 12:00 via submission [***½] This was a very good and hot opener, with a great crowd and the right winner ahead of the PPV, while Trent got to shine before losing.

– Pac cuts a promo and promises to make an example of Page on Saturday.

Cody arrives and has an announcement to make. Tony interviews him and ask about Saturday’s title match. Cody says the arrival of Jericho and the Inner Circle has been strategic, but they saw it coming. On Saturday, he faces Jericho for the championship. Cody runs down names of great promoters/bookers (including Dusty), and talks about them being greats in the ring, but there was controversy as they were also management like he is. AEW is inclusive, it’s freedom, but he hears the criticisms. So if he loses to Jericho on Saturday, he will never challenge for the championship again. But that’s a big if, Jericho calls him an entitled millennial bitch and mocks Jericho’s book and calls him a stupid dick. They are the same, but Jericho dismisses his accomplishments. But Jericho needs this generation more than it needs him. He’s busted his ass to go from undesirable to what he is now. He will win at Full Gear, the Elite are coming and when the Elite meets the Inner Circle, they will eat them alive, great babyface/go home promo from Cody here.

– SCU arrives on commentary as the Lucha Bros join Spanish commentary.

For a Tag Title Shot at Full Gear: Private Party vs. The Dark Order: The winners face SCU & Lucha Bros in a tag title match on Saturday at the PPV. Dark Order attack and take control right away. They isolate Quen and work quick tags, Quen fires back and Kassidy joins in for double teams. Dark Order powders, and Kassidy now lays in strikes on Grayson until he counters with a uranage, Uno tags in and takes control but Kassidy fires back and gets cut off. Grayson follows with the senton atomico on the apron. Post break and Uno is working over Kassidy.

Grayson and Quen tag in, double teams on Quen follow and the cannonball and 450 from Dark Order follows for 2. Quen hits a RANA, but Kassidy is cut off Quen cuts off fatality and silly string follows. Gin & juice connects for the win. Private Party defeated The Dark Order @ 11:35 via pin [***] Good match with the right winners that should lead to a really fun PPV match.

– We get a video from Jericho that airs, with Sammy Guevara calling him a father figure and Soultrain Jones (Virgil) praising him. Santana &Ortiz praise him, while Jake Hager stands there. His aunt’s friend from church says Jericho will whip Cody’s ass. Jericho says he only has one thing planned for the PPV, and that’s drinking some of the bubbleh, which is a huge responsibility. This was a fun parody of a previous Cody video.
