“It’s win or go home tonight! The winner of the tournament will get the first shot at the AEW World Title after FULL GEAR,” said Jim Ross.

Our opening contest: A World Title Eliminator Quarter-Final Match!
Jungle Boy (accompanied out by Luchasaurus and Marko Stunt) vs. “Mr. Mayhem” Wardlow (on an 8-match winning streak)!
Jungle Boy peppered Wardlow with shots right out of the gate! Jungle Boy tried to take out Wardlow’s vertical base with basement dropkicks. On the outside of the ring, Wardlow caught Jungle Boy and bombed him right into the metal ring post! Back in the ring, Wardlow hurled Jungle Boy across the ring effortlessly. Twice!
“I think Wardlow is my favorite in this tournament,” said Tony Schiavone.
“He’s an agile big-man,” replied Jim Ross.
Jungle Boy was dropped with a gut wrench powerbomb from Wardlow. Jungle Boy kicked out at two! Wardlow ran over Jungle Boy with a lariat like a locomotive!
“Jungle Boy needs to be more evasive,” said Schiavone.
No sooner did Schiavone say that when Jungle Boy hit a knee strike and then a missile dropkick to Wardlow, sending “Mr. Mayhem” outside of the ring! Jungle Boy seized the moment with a tope suicida to Wardlow’s spine! He planted Wardlow with a DDT for a near fall!
Jungle Boy was perched up on the top turnbuckle. He lured in Wardlow and connected with a reverse hurracanrana and then a diving knee drop in quick succession!
“Wardlow needs to regroup here,” said Tony Schiavone.
Jungle Boy attempted a DDT on the ramp but Wardlow countered with the F-10, chucking Jungle Boy back into the ring like a frisbee! Wardlow finished off Jungle Boy with another spectacular F-10!
Massive news! A major announcement from Tony Khan was relayed to viewers via the broadcast team!
The AEW World Championship will be on the line—in an “I Quit Match” at FULL GEAR—champ Jon Moxley defending against “Mad King” Eddie Kingston!
Up next: Kenny Omega vs. “The Concrete Rose” Sonny Kiss in another first round match in the World Title Eliminator Tournament!
Kenny’s new entrance consisted of dancing women with brooms!
Kenny blasted Sonny with the V-trigger and followed up with the one-winged angel and that was more than enough for the pin! It was over just as soon as it began! Kenny cleaned up quickly!
Kenny helped Sonny get up after the match, while Sonny tried to shake the cob webs.
Footage from earlier in the day played. Cody and Arn Anderson pulled up to the arena and Dasha tried to get a few words from Cody. “The American Nightmare” said he doesn’t see Orange Cassidy beating him next week because Cody has the “champion’s advantage.” Dasha mentioned Cody’s gain in muscle mass as of late, and Cody acknowledged it and said it was time to move up.
This was followed by brother versus brother!
Rey Fenix (one-half of The Lucha Bros) vs. Penta El Zero M (the other half of The Lucha Bros) in another World Title Eliminator Quarter-Final Match!
“This is going to be something special! The first time they’re meeting inside an All Elite ring,” said Excalibur.
Eddie Kingston joined the broadcast team for this match. “I haven’t quit once in my life,” Kingston said to Jim Ross after J.R. asked him to comment on the upcoming “I Quit” match against Jon Moxley at FULL GEAR on November 7th.
They traded arm drags and reversals until Penta El Zero M captured Rey Fenix in an ankle lock. Penta El Zero M went for a package piledriver early but Rey Fenix escaped. Penta El Zero M followed up with a thrust kick to Rey Fenix!
They challenged one another to a chopping contest—you can tell they’re brothers with this type of behavior! Rey Fenix struck first! Penta El Zero M removed his glove and then blasted his brother with a chop to the chest! Rey Fenix almost buckled. Rey Fenix jumped off the top rope but Penta El Zero M stepped to the right and connected with a superkick to Rey Fenix for a near fall!
Penta El Zero M was knocked to the floor and Rey Fenix caught his brother off guard with a sensational diving tornillo! Rey Fenix ran across the top of the ropes like a cat but Penta El Zero M kicked the rope, knocking Rey Fenix down to the mat! Penta El Zero M wiped out Rey Fenix with a sling blade off the middle rope! Rey Fenix, out of nowhere, superkicked Penta El Zero M, but it was only good for a two count!
“This highly physical match is taking its toll on both competitors,” observed Excalibur.
Rey Fenix decimated Penta El Zero M with a phenomenal Spanish fly, but Penta El Zero M kicked out! Penta El Zero M was frustrated and tried to break his brother’s arm with an arm bar! Penta El Zero M thought he might have the match won, but Rey Fenix pinned his brother after a wicked destroyer!
“I’ve never seen anything like this!” said Tony Schiavone.
“What a match!” added Jim Ross.
“This is why they’re the best,” said Eddie Kingston.
“Hangman” Adam Page vs. Colt “Boom Boom” Cabana (accompanied by Evil Uno) in a World Title Eliminator Quarter-Final Match!
Evil Uno stayed on the ramp, observing and trying to coach Colt from a distance.
They began with some impressive chain wrestling with Colt getting the better of the exchange. Then Colt walked into the heavy hands of “Hangman,” eating a strike to the face! Page followed up with a clothesline. Colt blocked a second lariat with an elbow, but Page came back with a standing moonsault and then a big pescado! Both men were showing tremendous aggression, realizing the significance of winning this particular match.
Colt and Page went back and forth with forearms! Hangman tossed Cabana with a fallaway slam! Page ran toward Cabana but Cabana stopped Page with an elbow!
“Colt is hungry!” said Jim Ross.
Cabana had plenty of momentum here until Page caught Cabana with a German suplex! He smashed Colt with an elbow, knocking Colt to the outside. Colt pushed Page off the apron and then countered with the diamond splash onto the arena floor! Colt climbed to the top for a splash but Page moved out of the way! Page powerbombed Colt but Colt kicked out at two! Page went for the buckshot lariat but Colt had it scouted and blocked it! Cabana went for the Chicago skyline but this time Hangman had it scouted and countered it! Page finally sealed the deal and beat the outstanding veteran Colt Cabana with the buckshot lariat!
The Dark Order came out to the ring and assisted Colt to the back.
So next week it’s the Quarter-Finals!
Rey Fenix vs. Kenny Omega!
And Wardlow vs. “Hangman” Adam Page!
Team Taz came out on the ramp. Taz was outraged for “The Machine” Brian Cage and “Absolute” Ricky Starks and the way Team Taz was passed over for certain opportunities. Cage said Will Hobbs better watch his back, and Ricky Starks threatened Darby Allin.
It was time for Le Dinner Debonair with “Demo God” Chris Jericho and “Ratings Ruler” MJF!
It was a night for fine dining and fancy foot work! They both ordered a porterhouse steak, but Jericho and MJF kept changing their order with the waitress so as not to have their steaks prepared the same way. Jericho said next week there would be an Inner Circle townhall on DYNAMITE.
Jericho said MJF’s new “Ratings Ruler” moniker sucks and it has about as much chance of getting over as Orange Cassidy, which they both laughed at. MJF said, “See, we’re getting along already.” Then Jericho and MJF began a full song and dance number straight out of a 1940s Hollywood musical that, well, has to be seen to be believed! “Me and my shadow,” indeed!
Dr. Britt Baker, D.M.D. (with “Reba”) vs. Kilynn King!
King had wrist control on Baker, but Baker reversed it. Baker curb stomped King a la Super Dragon!
King blasted the face of Baker with elbow strikes. Baker flatlined King into the middle turnbuckle!
“That is an evil woman right there,” said Jim Ross.
Baker caught King with a sling blade, ducked under a clothesline and countered with a DDT! Britt stomped on King’s face and then applied her lockjaw submission! Kilynn King quickly tapped out to Dr. Britt Baker!
Announced for next week on DYNAMITE!

AEW Tag Champs FTR—Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood— joined the broadcast team for this match.
Matt and Nick Jackson tagged in and out, taking on all comers by themselves. Private Party stopped the Bucks in their tracks with Private Party-style superkicks!
Marq Quen made the most of the opportunity and dished out dropkicks. He jumped over the top rope and crashed onto Silver on the ramp, and then connected with Reynolds from the top turnbuckle to the arena floor! Marq Queen smashed into Blade with a shooting star press, but the Butcher broke up the count with his interference.
“High stakes here, without a doubt, because the winners will face FTR for the titles,” said Jim Ross.
John Silver, like a one-man wrecking crew, cleaned house! Dark Order implemented an impressive tandem offense sequence, and covered Marq Quen, but The Young Bucks made the save, breaking the pin!
Private Party followed up with Silly String on Alex Reynolds and then the Hardy Party off the top rope, but the Bucks stopped the count again!
“The Bucks need a win here. Psychologically, they need a win here,” said Jim Ross.
Butcher and the Blade hit Full Death on Kassidy but the Bucks stopped the count! The Bucks had a game plan! Nick Jackson kicked everyone in the match right in the mush!
“Still the best in the world,” said Nick Jackson to the camera.
The Bucks unleashed a superkick party on the Butcher!
“FTR, watch this!” yelled Matt Jackson on the top rope, as he and Nick used a piledriver senton combination on Private Party, until the rest of the teams broke up the pin, employing the Bucks’ strategy.
The Bucks isolated Kassidy. They set Kassidy up for the Meltzer Driver, but Marq Quen pulled Nick Jackson off the apron! Meanwhile, Kassidy rolled up Matt Jackson, but Matt Jackson reversed the roll up attempt and pinned Kassidy!
“Finally, the Bucks and FTR at FULL GEAR,” said Tony Schiavone.
FTR came down to the ring with their world titles. A masked man jumped into the ring and walloped Nick Jackson with a steel chair! FTR propped up Nick Jackson while the masked assailant jumped off the middle turnbuckle, executing a spiked piledriver on Nick!
FTR placed Matt Jackson’s ankle inside the steel chair and jumped off the top rope, crashing down onto his leg! The masked man revealed himself to be Tully Blanchard! FTR and Tully Blanchard taunted The Young Bucks, with Jim Ross raising doubts as to the condition Matt Jackson’s leg would be in when the Bucks get their shot at FTR at FULL GEAR!
