- Maxwell Jacob Friedman kicks off the show. He's quickly
interrupted by Daniel Garcia, the hometown boy. Daniel
Garcia puts MJF over as somebody who gave him advice and
inspiration. Max returned the favor by saying he genuinely
believes Daniel Garcia is working his way to be on his
level. Max challenges Danny to a match for Wembley Stadium.

They're interrupted by Will Ospreay. Ospreay grants Danny an
International Championship match for next week but also
teases that it could be for the AEW World Championship as
well. Danny agrees. Max's pissed because he got
overshadowed. Garcia goes to answer Max's challenge
officially and Max cuts him off and tells him to worry about
next week first. Max storms off and Danny dances for his
hometown crowd.

- Backstage, Swerve Strickland is pissed off that Will is
offering World Championship matches when he hasn't even won
the championship and tells Will that he better be prepared
when they team up later tonight against Gates of Agony.

Mox. Meanwhile, on the other side of the ring, Shingo

by Gabe Kidd. Gabe Kidd & Roderick Strong vs. The Infantry
was a match that was announced for this Friday's episode of
Rampage. However, there were also disagreements between Gabe
and Roderick when Roderick was showing concern for Kyle.
Orange Cassidy tried to check on Kyle as well after the
