In standard AEW fashion, they cut to commercial and missed Nyla Rose’s entire title celebration. Don’t worry though, because she did walk backstage and cut a promo that we were unable to hear with the commercial.

The Inner Circle are interviewed backstage and they have some big news for next week. Jericho says that last week, when Moxley used the car key to attack Santana, he proved he was a piece of human trash. He says it makes him sick that he has to stand in the same ring as him but he will because he’s a good man. However what he did was scour the globe for an assassin that could tear him limb from limb. So if he survives Santana, next week he will face Jeff Cobb of Ring of Honor fame. Jericho says he will meet Moxley in hell.

No more ducking or dodging. In two weeks he gets 30 minutes with the best in the world. This is the most one-sided, mishandled feud. Seriously, it feels like PAC is in the feud by himself and once a month Omega runs around looking for him but that’s it. Next week, Omega and Page will defend their tag titles against Lucha Bros.
