“This is awesome!” the crowd chanted.
Eddie tried for a half and half suplex but Bryan countered with a roundhouse to the side of Eddie’s head.
“He kicked the head in of Eddie Kingston. This might be the beginning of the end of Eddie,” said Taz.
Bryan charged in for the knee for Kingston collapsed, protecting himself in the process. Bryan grew frustrated and dropped elbows. Bryan was looking for the arm bar but Kingston countered with the DDT!
“Both men at the end of their ropes as they’re really leaving it all out there,” said Jericho.
“They’re beating the hell out of each other,” replied Taz.

There was a commotion and it was a very emotional Eddie Kingston, upset that he lost his match. “I know you!” said Kingston, interrupting the interview.
“You want to go to sleep again?” asked CM Punk, as Kingston was pushed back by AEW officials.
The third match in the Martin-Sydal trilogy was up next!
Dante Martin (with Lio Rush) Vs. Matt Sydal!
“Dante is just a kid. He needs the guidance of Lio Rush,” said Chris Jericho.
Sydal was trying to talk sense into Dante, telling him he didn’t need Lio Rush. Sydal took Dante down with a side headlock. Sydal used an arm drag and maintained wrist control on Dante.
Dante Martin spring boarded off the top and nailed Sydal! He followed up with a moonsault off the second turnbuckle to the outside of the ring onto Sydal! Dante’s offense was next level here, and so incredibly innovative.

“We are witnessing a classic right here in Boston,” commented Excalibur.
Dante rolled up Sydal with a crucifix but Sydal kicked out! Sydal kicked Dante to the side of the head but Dante avoided a lightning spiral with a cutter! Dante finished off Sydal with the double springboard moonsault, good for the pin!
“Leo Rush proving to be the X factor for Dante Martin here tonight,” said Excalibur.
