Hangman Adam Page def. Bryan Danielson—AEW World Championship

Poor Jim Ross claimed the night would start with the TBS Women’s Championship final, but this was not the case as the show started with the AEW World Championship match.

Despite naming himself as a judge on Twitter, Max Caster did not appear on the judge’s panel, which comprised of Mark Henry, Paul Wight and Jerry Lynn.

Jim Ross astutely pointed out that the first official of the TBS era was Paul Turner.

This match got real bloody, real quick, and Hangman Adam Page’s bloody jumping jacks were a cherry on top.

Bryan Danielson used the Gotch-style piledriver while staring at Jerry Lynn to curry favor with him in case this went to the judges. It was next-level psychology.

Captain Shawn Dean def. MJF by Disqualification

Shawn Dean won by disqualification after CM Punk immediately hit a GTS, and I’m sure this will be included in a tweet from Tony Khan a month from now.

MJF burned CM Punk by saying Roddy Piper was talented enough to main event WrestleMania. AEW gets closer to WWE 2.0 with every MJF-CM Punk promo exchange.

CM Punk called WrestleMania “Night 4 of a Buy 1, Get 1 Free Extravaganza.”

Chris Jericho Promo

It was a dated reference, but Chris Jericho calling 2.0 “Terrance and Phillip” was hilarious.

Chris Jericho and 2.0 have so much chemistry, comedically. I don’t know if this makes me anticipate a match in the future, but they play off each other very well.

The promos between Chris Jericho and Eddie Kingston are going to be amazing.

Wardlow def. Antonio Zambrano

Wardlow’s push continued to go according to plan as he power bombed another enhancement talent into oblivion to the delight of the fans. Also, I think they were happy to finally see some wrestling after two long talking segments.

Jade Cargill def. Ruby Soho—AEW TBS Championship

Ruby Soho wore a jacket with Jade Cargill’s face that read “God save that b—h.”

Jade Cargill appeared to get in the wrong corner for a high-risk move and had to move to the hard camera side.

Jade Cargill was awesome as a heel during the break as she postured and performed picture-perfect pushups while dominating the match.

Mark Sterling was charismatically kicked out by Aubrey Edwards toward the end of this match.

Jade Cargill couldn’t have lost with her baby daughter in the audience.

Cargill and Soho teased a top rope Jaded but promptly decided to use the bottom rope instead for the finish.

Malakai Black def. Brian Pillman Jr.

Brian Pillman got way more offense than I thought he would, including a Jackhammer. Much like in his WWE days, fans tend to cool off the more Malakai (Aleister) Black sells.

Julia Hart is wearing a black eyepatch, so it’s only a matter of time before she joins the House of Black.

Aaron Solo penned the term “stretch me if you can.”

Jungle Boy and Luchasaurus def. The Lucha Bros—AEW World Tag Team Championship

This seemed like a good excuse to skip The Lucha Bros entrance, in the interest of time, as they walked to the ring to confront Black following his win. But after a series of backstage promos, The Lucha Brothers still got an entrance. And here I thought they were cutting down these entrances for more ring time.

Jim Ross couldn’t hide his disdain during a sequence where all four wrestlers held hands, sniping “a couple of these guys have to leave.”

Jungle Boy had a great Canadian Destroyer spot with Rey Fenix that really brought hte crowd into this match.

The lights went out toward the end of this match, only to come on without issue. Judging by The Lucha Bros feud with Malakai Black, it’s safe to assume it’s part of a storyline.

I was shocked to see the Jurassic Express go over, but had I seen his mother in the crowd it might have been a tell.
