Taz joined commentary for the match.

Page was attacked during his entrance and beaten down by all of Team Taz until the Dark Order ran out to make the save. Cage planted Page with a powerbomb on the ramp before the match got underway.

Brian Cage defeated Hangman Page

This was really good for the time allotted.

Cage continued the beatdown with stomps, strikes, and suplexes. Taz was great on commentary breaking down the different throws and suplexes that Cage deployed. They spilled to the floor where Cage repeatedly thrust Page into the barricade before dropping him with a back suplex on the apron.

Back in the ring, Cage taunted Page by curling him into an overhead throw, but Page got his knees up on a standing moonsault attempt. Page escaped to the apron but was met with a thrust kick before Cage suplexed him back into the ring the hard way for two.

Page countered a suplex and some strikes before sending Cage to the floor. Cage caught Page on the latter's plancha attempt, but Page was able to fight out and send Cage into the ring post, following it up with an Orihara moonsault. In the ring, Cage countered the Buckshot Lariat into a powerslam before following it up with a powerbomb, a buckle bomb, and the Drill Claw to pick up the upset win in about six minutes.

The Elite (Omega, Callis, the Young Bucks, and the Good Brothers) were in a limousine celebrating after Omega's title victory. Omega said that he's used to people trying to ruin their lives after Moxley and Kingston destroyed their trailer. They're not going to be intimidated or scared. 

However, a horn went off, and everyone jumped -- but it was just Michael Nakazawa pushing the wrong button in the vehicle. Omega said Kingston would come face to face with Nakazawa later tonight.

Don Callis joined commentary for the match.

AEW World Tag Team Championship Eliminator: Young Bucks (Matt Jackson & Nick Jackson) defeated Matt Sydal & Mike Sydal

If the Sydals win this match, they earn a title shot.

Mike and Matt Jackson started off. Mike landed a standing moonsault right away, forcing Nick to tag in, so Mike tagged in his brother as well. Matt Sydal outwrestled Nick, getting across the fact that he's added a submission element to his game since joining AEW. The Sydal brothers landed stereo dropkicks, but Matt Jackson made a blind tag and took Mike out with a superkick.

Thoughout a break, the Bucks dominated the Sydals before performing twin magic after a double down. Matt Jackson "kipped up" after feigning an injury, but Mike fought out to reach his brother for the hot tag. Matt Sydal ran wild on everyone before crushing Matt Jackson with a brainbuster for two. 

Matt Jackson countered Matt Sydal into perfect Indytaker position, but the latter fought out and landed a standing corkscrew moonsault. After a dive from both Sydals, Matt Sydal hit a hurricanrana on both Bucks and applied a crucifix pin for a great near fall. 

Matt Sydal landed a leaping hurricanrana on Nick, but a second on Matt Jackson was countered as he was sent crashing to the mat. Mike tagged in and ran into a low blow with the official distracted. The Bucks superkicked Matt Sydal off the apron before killing Mike with the BTE Trigger for the win. 

– After the match, Brandon Cutler sprayed the Bucks down with cold spray. SCU came out, with Kazarian recapping that they haven't lost since making the "if we lose, we break up" ultimatum. They want the tag titles. Daniels was excited to wrestle his friends, the Bucks, but he doesn't see his friends out there, he sees a couple "bitches." They're the #1 contenders, and they're ready for the Bucks to sign the dotted line for the match.

Jade Cargill cut a video promo about all the managers in AEW wanting to sign her, but she's not willing to give a cut of her money. She's "that bitch."

**********

Alex Abrahantes translated a Penta promo. "Penta says" he's gonna beat Orange Cassidy to a pulp.

Orange Cassidy (w/ Trent?) defeated Penta El Zero Miedo (w/ Alex Abrahantes)

They both did their schtick at the start, with Cassidy putting his hands in his pockets and Penta doing the "cero miedo" chant. Cassidy went for Beach Break and Penta went for the package piledriver, but both were countered as Penta eventually hit a tilt-a-whirl backbreaker. Cassidy got the upperhand and posed with the thumb up, so Penta just bit his thumb.

Penta caught a Cassidy tope suicida and just dumped him on the apron leading into the break. Once back, Penta landed multiple gamengiris but was met with a Cassidy crossbody. Penta countered a DDT into a brainbuster for two. Cassidy fired up with right hands, but Penta turned the Orange Punch into a pumphandle driver for two.

It looked like Penta was about to hit the arm-snap spot, but Cassidy fought to put the hand in his pocket. They traded thrust kicks, with Penta countering the Orange Punch into a thrust kick and a destroyer. Penta tried for the package piledriver, but Cassidy turned it into the Beach Break for two. 

Penta landed a face wash kick in the corner, but Cassidy hit a Stundog Millionaire out of a brainbuster attempt followed by a diving DDT. A second spinning DDT got two for Cassidy.

Abrahantes grabbed a mic and started to cut a promo, but Cassidy pulled him into the ring. The distraction allowed Penta to hit a thrust kick, but Cassidy escaped and grabbed a mic from Trent, hitting a mic-assisted Orange Punch for the win.

Britt Baker and Rebel were interviewed by Tony Schiavone. Baker is the top of the food chain on merch, ratings, and now the AEW women's division rankings. She said she was signed to be the face of the women's division, and it's time for a new champion.

Inner Circle & Pinnacle Parley

This was incredible. Everyone except Spears completely nailed their promos, with MJF, Santana, and Guevara sticking out as particularly great.

Blood and Guts is next week. Schiavone hosted, bringing out the Pinnacle first and then the Inner Circle, whose security detail came out on motorcycles. Schiavone discussed the rules of the match (it's War Games rules).

They were about to have a coin toss to say who should get the advantage in who enters first. Spears interrupted and said the Pinnacle deserves the advantage before calling out Guevara, saying he'd step on his head while he drowns. Guevara took the mic and called Spears a failure, both in AEW and "where he used to work." Guevara said he'd start the match, and he doesn't care who has the advantage. The Pinnacle will have the advantage.

Wheeler spoke next, saying he wants a different version of Santana and Ortiz at Blood and Guts, not the sanitized version that follows Jericho around. Harwood says he's not afraid to die before talking about Santana and Ortiz's kids. He recommended that they tell their kids "Daddy ain't coming back home." Ortiz calmed down his partner, and Santana said FTR would be locked in a cage with them. FTR have never been locked up like they have.

MJF addressed Jericho, thanking him and putting over his AEW career so far. However, Jericho must be feeling a lot of pressure. If Jericho doesn't do well, he could be affecting the food on the table of every man and woman in the company. He said Jericho looks exhausted, so next week, MJF will take Jericho's crown and replace Jericho at the top of the mountain. When that happens, he will thank Jericho once again.

Jericho called MJF a "self-righteous, self-gratifying little prick." He said MJF can't just inherit a spot. When Jericho was 25 years old, he'd already headlined arenas around the world in Japan and Mexico, because he'd learned the respect required to put him at the top of this game. If MJF wants Jericho's spot, he's gotta beat him. He said "we *are* Blood and Guts," as the Inner Circle have been together since day one. If 1969 was the Summer of Love, 2021 is the summer of pain and violence. At Blood and Guts, summer starts early for MJF.

**********

Eddie Kingston vs. Michael Nakazawa never happened. Kingston cut a promo before the match saying he wasn't doing this sports entertainment crap. He told Nakazawa to get out of the ring. 

Omega walked out and said they should be paying Kingston back for what he and Moxley did. Nakazawa attacked Kingston with his laptop, but Kingston countered it into an exploder suplex and a spinning backfist. Kingston wrapped a chair around Nakazawa's leg and demanded that Omega get in the ring, or he'd break his ankle. Omega said Nakazawa knew what he signed up for before bringing out Brandon Cutler, who had already been attacked by Jon Moxley who ran out.

Moxley choked Omega out with a sleeper and told Callis he wants a tag match with Omega and Nakazawa. Callis obliged, and the match was signed for next week.

**********

Taz was interviewed by Schiavone. Brian Cage is the new #1 contender, but Taz wanted to talk about Christian Cage, who arrived. Christian interrupted him, saying Taz used to be one of the baddest dudes in the ring, but now he basks in the accolades of his associates just so he can feel like that again. Taz didn't come back to wrestling, but Christian did. Christian is happy to take out Team Taz one by one. 

**********

Kris Statlander (w/ Orange Cassidy) defeated Penelope Ford (w/ Kip Sabian)

They laid in strikes right away before Statlander landed a powerslam and a press slam. Ford came back and went for a knee drop, but Statlander rolled out of the way, forcing Ford's knees into the apron. Statlander booped Ford on the floor, but a distraction from Sabian allowed Ford to hit the knee drop. 

Back from break, the two exchanged forearms until Statlander hit a lariat STO. Statlander attacked in the corner with a running knee before a Blue Thunder bomb got two. Ford came back with a diving blockbuster for two. Statlander came back on her own with as Solar Eclipse for two.

Statlander laid in ground and pound but ran into a high kick from Ford for two. Ford went for a handspring move, but Statlander countered it into a Big Bang Theory. Sabian tried to distract the official, but Cassidy stopped him, allowing Statlander to pick up the win.

**********

Preston "10" Vance cut a promo video ahead of his TNT Championship match. He talked about his memories with Mr. Brodie Lee as well as wanting to bring the title back to the Dark Order. This was wonderful.

**********

The Factory (QT Marshall, Nick Comoroto, & Aaron Solow) (w/ Anthony Ogogo) defeated The Nightmare Family (Dustin Rhodes, Billy Gunn, & Lee Johnson)

The two teams fought before the bell, with each member pairing off to brawl on the outside. Eventually the Factory isolated Gunn in the ring, who had his ribs taped after the gut punch from Anthony Ogogo last week. 

Dustin tagged in and faced off with Comoroto, hitting his drop-down right hand before being flattened with a back elbow, leading to the commercial break. Throughout, the Factory dismantled Dustin with frequent tags and double teams. Once back, Dustin hit a powerslam, allowing him to reach Johnson for the hot tag.

Johnson ran wild on everyone, concluded with a back elbow into a neckbreaker followed by a kip-up. It was just Johnson and Solow in the ring, with Johnson hitting a Blue Thunder bomb for two. Johnson fought off Solow and Comoroto before landing a corkscrew dive, but with the official distracted, Ogogo killed Johnson and Gunn with gut punches. The punch was enough for Marshall to pin Johnson for the win.

– After the match, Comoroto attacked Dustin with a cow bell. The Factory walked to the back, but Marshall decided to taunt some more, where he was attacked by the Gunn Club. The Factory ran back out and brawled with the Gunn Club as Marshall walked out to the Nightmare Express bus, where he was surprised by a returning Cody Rhodes.

Marshall tried to escape on top of the bus, but was cornered by Cody, who took him down and applied the Figure Four. Marshall frantically tapped as the show ended.

**********

Cameras caught up to Kip Sabian backstage, where he tried to talk to Miro. Miro just killed him, tossing him into a garage door and choking him with a chain before stuffing him in a locker. He then slammed a door on Sabian arm before "forgiving" Sabian.

TNT Championship: Darby Allin (c) (w/ Sting) defeated 10 (w/ Dark Order)

10 looked impressive here as they played off the size discrepancy well.

They established 10's power advantage early on. Allin tried to out-wrestle the bigger man but was flattened with a shoulder block. Allin fought out of a suplex and clawed at 10's mask, but 10 powered out with a backbreaker. Allin took 10 down with a chop block, but 10 shrugged off a dive, sending Allin crashing to the mat into the commercial. 

Back from break, 10 press slammed Allin to the mat before powering out of a triangle hold with a powerbomb. Allin came back with a stunner and applied the Fujiwara armbar. 10 tried to escape, but Allin rolled through and re-applied the armbar in the center of the ring, forcing 10 to fight to reach the ropes.

They spilled to the floor where 10 regained control, sending Allin into the barricade. Upon re-entry, however, Allin hopped to the top rope and dove onto 10 and Alan Angels with a flipping senton. Sting and the Dark Order faced off as the two competitors recovered. With the official distracted, Ethan Page attacked Allin, sending him into the ring post.

10 was conflicted after the attack but the Dark Order told him to continue the attack. He landed a wheelbarrow German for two. Allin came back by tearing at the mask, but 10 caught Allin on a Coffin Drop attempt, turning it into a full Nelson. Allin faded but rebounded off the ropes, cradling 10 for the pinfall victory.

– After the match, Ethan Page distracted Sting and Allin, allowing Scorpio Sky to attack. Sky dismantled Allin's leg until Lance Archer ran out to make the save as the show ended.
