The Firm’s Lee Moriarty defeated Fuego Del Sol in less than two minutes. After the match, Morrissey choke slammed Fuego.
Andrade approached Preston Vance challenging him to a match next week on Rampage. If Andrade wins, Preston gives up his mask. If Preston wins, Andrade leaves AEW for good.

A “WarJoe” promo package aired highlighting the team of Samoa Joe and Wardlow.
