The Cleaner and the Cowboy closed out last week, now they get to open this week!

The Murderhawk Monster wants to destroy everyone in his path, but the Bad Boy never says die! Will something drastically change as these two finally have it out in the ring?

The Bad Boy’s table comes back to haunt him, and Archer is proven right: #EverybodyDies. Archer stares into the camera to make sure everyone understands that. Will the champions of AEW have to take it the most serious?
AEW has a special treat for a fan!
Hot Ones contestant and aspiring pro-wrestler, Ronnie, is here for a rematch. But he has a special tag team partner in CODY RHODES! Cody does a hot sauce shot and survives, but can he and Ronnie conquer the challenge?
Darby Allin has another video message.
“It’s been about a month since I’ve been out of the ring.” He hasn’t forgotten Brian Cage, the man who put him out. Darby finds no better way to practice for his in-ring return, and his Coffin Drop, than at Pastrana Land? Travis helps Darby with his biggest Coffin Drop EVER! Into the foam pit!
Tony Schiavone is in the ring.
Fight for the Fallen will have the AEW World Championship on the line with Jon Moxley’s return. But tonight, Taz and Brian Cage head to the ring! Taz has something in his hand aside from his signature orange towel. He is glad Schiavone is here, because of his history of calling iconic moments in wrestling. This will be one of those moments. As we all know, what was supposed to happen was the AEW World Champion was supposed to fight against The Machine. Next week is when it happens, and The Machine will still become NEW AEW World Champion. That brings us to what is in Taz’s hands. This is something Taz created decades ago. This is something that basically is Taz’s full body of work. This is something created with Taz’s blood, sweat and tears. This is… the FTW World Championship belt!
No promotion has ever recognized this title, but fans worldwide recognize and respect the man who holds this belt! The man who holds this title is the baddest SOB in the business today! And that man will no longer be uncrowned! That man won’t go into the Fight for the Fallen without a title, because that man is Brian Cage! Taz formally crowns Cage the FTW World Champion! What we are looking at is renegade sh*t! Who better than The Machine Brian Cage to go into the Fight for the Fallen with momentum? Mox is DONE! Who better? Nobody! AEW technically adds this title to their roster, but will Cage truly prove he’s the baddest when he and Moxley finally fight it out?

Incredible stuff from AEW again, and definitely a great Fyter Fest finale. Of course, there’s just as much great stuff planned for Fight for the Fallen on top of the AEW World Championship. Cody returning to defend his TNT Championship is definitely an intriguing part. Just about anyone could challenge him, maybe it’s someone who won tonight. Opening with the tag team championships was great, gave that match a lot of time to work with. Omega and Hangman obviously retain but Private Party sure looked great once again. Archer and Janela had a great match but it makes a lot of sense for Archer to win. He’s been on such a powerful roll, he’s definitely coming for a title by the time we get to All Out. Speaking of titles, it was a rather surprising but great move for Taz to give Brian Cage the FTW World Championship, though don’t expect AEW to make next week #WinnerTakesAll. That’d just be copying WWE.
Nyla obviously wins against two AEW Dark jobbers, but I was surprised to hear her announcement. I’m not sure who she could get to manage her. She has a point that Cody has Arn and is champion, but Taz literally gave Cage a title. Tully is helping Spears but Spears hasn’t gotten a title shot yet. Nyla probably could’ve kept going on her own, but it seems this is to keep the character aspects fresh, and perhaps an ace in the hole much like Tully does for Spears. Swole and Britt have a great segment, it so far hasn’t gotten stale. The 8 Man Tag was incredible, PPV worthy even! And what a twist for Blade, Buther and Lucha Brothers to win. I should’ve given AEW more credit, but I thought AEW Dark was going to affect the math tonight.
The Cabana story with the Dark Order is definitely taking some interesting twists. That bruise on Cabana’s side looked nasty, I wonder how legit it was. The match with SCU was really good, especially with the story elements. As such, it made a lot of sense for Cabana and the Dark Order to win. Cabana hasn’t gone full Heel, and that adds some dimension to this. There has to be a point where SCU confronts Cabana more directly and that pushes the issue of Cabana being good or bad. And then the main event, Jericho VS Cassidy, that was also PPV worthy. Great stuff from start to finish, though I guess splashing orange juice isn’t a disqualification. I would hope the story continues between Inner Circle and Best Friends, maybe they also get a Six Man Tag for Fight for the Fallen. Still hoping on AEW Trios Championships honestly, and at this point, Cassidy & Best Friends are on par with Jurassic Express for how much fans love them. That’d be a hard tournament to call.
My Score: 9.6/10
