Jon Moxley defeats Dax Harwood

Early in the match, these two exchanged kisses in true Valentines Day fashion, before they proceeded to chop the life out of each other. This is what this match was, chops and every type of strike. In the closing stretch, Moxley hit the second rope as Harwood was getting in, which was an illegal hit to the groin. Moxley followed this up with a cutter, stomp, and piledriver but Harwood kicked out. However, Harwood was not able to take advantage. Moxley caught Harwood in a chokehold and ended up getting the submission victory. Moxley would not let go of the hold after the victory which caused Cash Wheeler to come for the save. Castagnoli came to even the odds. The Blackpool Combat Club guys were left standing tall.

Young Bucks defeat Top Flight

The Young Bucks came out of their limo backstage with the same bloody suits from last week, all while donning soul patches, their latest horrible facial hair look. The Young Bucks were ultra heels in this match with the constant distractions, illegal pins, and a low blow. The EVP trigger gave the Bucks the victory.

After the match, Matthew Jackson claimed that after this victory, they are now number one contenders for the tag team titles. Tony Schiavone then called the attack on Sting last week as “despicable”. The Bucks didn’t take lightly to Schiavone’s comment and ended up fining him $1000. Nicholas then pushed Schiavone down. The Bucks then teased an EVP Trigger as they were helping Schiavone up. However, Darby Allin came out for the save.

Allin got on the mic and ran down the Bucks. He said that the original mission statement of AEW was “change the world” but the Bucks don’t embody that anymore. Allin talked about how he was homeless and begged the Bucks for a job, and luckily there was an EVP with brains that secured Allin’s job with AEW. Cue the Cody chants.

Nightingale was able to then get out of the pinning predicament, take advantage, and get the victory.

Orange Cassidy defeats Matt Taven in a Texas Death Match

The match started a little late in the show and it took a few minutes to get going. Orange Cassidy getting busted open was a colorful visual. A table at ringside was set up and a groggy Cassidy was standing in front of it. Taven set up for a suicide dive, Cassidy moved out of the way and Taven who got crazy air-time and ended up going head-first into the table. Taven was able to beat the count. Cassidy then brought out a heart-shaped box of chocolates. But this was no box of chocolates, it was instead a box of thumbtacks. Both Cassidy and Taven got a taste of the unforgiving tacks. Soon after, Mike Bennett and Trent Beretta got involved but ended up eliminating each other from the equation. A beach break from Cassidy onto a chair and tacks was still not enough. Cassidy had to wrap his fist with a chain and execute an Orange Punch to keep Taven out for the count. Roderick Strong tried to come for the save but Cassidy quickly threw him out of the ring before he could get involved any more. Cassidy and Strong are set to face off for the International title at Revolution.
