It’s Wednesday night and you know what that means!

Matt Menard backstage!

Garcia said he respected Will Ospreay, but Garcia promises
on his mother’s life that he isn’t losing the match tonight.

MJF walked onto the set with encouraging words for Garcia.

Garcia said he wanted to ask MJF one question about Wembley,
and MJF told him to just focus on tonight’s match against

MJF: “But I’d like to ask you one question about your match
tonight. Can I be in your corner?”

Garcia fist bumped MJF and said, “I’ll see you out there.”

Matt Menard told MJF he thought MJF was full of it, but
after everything MJF has done for Daniel Garcia the past few
weeks, “…you’re all right with me,” and Menard shook MJF’s

“American Dragon” Bryan Danielson
“The Bastard” PAC!

Danielson used a side headlock takeover on Pac. They got to
their feet and locked up in a test of strength. Danielson
applied a wrist lock and then used an arm breaker on Pac.
Pac took down Danielson with a dropkick. The arena was
packed with dueling chants from the fans for both

Pac and Danielson traded chops, blistering one another’s
chests. Both men had the same idea and collided in the ring
with running cross body presses. Danielson walloped Pac with
European uppercuts, but Pac answered with a vicious forearm
and then a pump kick. Pac wiped out Danielson with a
moonsault and then quickly applied “the Brutalizer.”
Danielson managed to reach the ropes with his boot, forcing
the ref to break the hold.

Pac tried for a German Suplex, but Danielson landed on his
feet and followed up with a roundhouse kick to Pac, buying
Danielson some time to recover. Danielson tried for a
sliding dropkick, but Pac avoided it. Danielson jumped off
the apron with a diving knee strike to Pac on the arena

Danielson charged at Pac, but Pac caught Danielson with a
thrust kick. Pac jumped off the barricade and connected with
a diving elbow drop. Pac hit a second elbow drop, this time
a springboard off the ropes onto Danielson. Pac drilled
Danielson with a tombstone piledriver for a near fall!

Danielson grabbed Pac with the Le Bell Lock out of nowhere,
grounding Pac on the mat. Pac reached the ropes forcing ref
Paul Turner to break up the submission attempt. Danielson
climbed to the top turnbuckle, but Pac made a desperate
lunge to sweep out the legs of Danielson. Pac climbed to the
top and blasted Bryan with an avalanche brain buster for a
near fall!

“How the hell did he kick out of that?” asked Taz.

Pac ascended to the top and went for the Black Arrow, but
Danielson dodged it! Danielson clobbered Pac with the
running knee strike! Danielson went to cover Pac, but Pac
transitioned into the Brutalizer. Danielson escaped and put
on the LeBell Lock. Pac countered by rolling up Danielson,
but Danielson reversed it and pinned Pac!

“You hear about a game of inches. That was a game of
millimeters. Bryan Danielson has earned his spot in the
finals next week,” said Excalibur.

ROH World Champion Mark Briscoe came to the ring with a

Mark Briscoe: “I came here tonight representing Dem Boys,
the baddest tag team this planet has ever seen. They call me
‘chicken,’ but don’t it twisted, I ain’t scared of s—t. Jack
Perry got lucky and came up victorious in the ladder match.

“But that was last week. I’m not worried about last week.
I’m worried about this week. And this week is Shark Week!
And when I think of Shark Week, I think of blood, and then I
think of Blood & Guts, and right here, right now, I declare
myself as the first member of Team AEW in the Blood & Guts
match on Dynamite on July 24th in Nashville, TN against Team

TNT Champion Jack Perry blindsided Briscoe from behind. Kyle

cannonball senton! Willow dropkicked Kris from the

a high boot kick.

Stokely placed a steel chain on the apron. Stokely
distracted the ref while Kris grabbed the chain. Willow
ducked a punch from Statlander and rolled up Statlander,
scoring the pin!

“Willow advancing to the finals next week!” said Excalibur.

Tony Schiavone interviewed the returning Dr. Britt Baker,
D.M.D., in the ring!

The fans chanted “Welcome back! Welcome back!”

Britt: “Damn, I missed you guys. I’m going to talk to you
about three things that we all have: a past, a present, and
a future. Our past is a lesson. Our present is a gift. Our
future is our motivation. For the past 10 months, I’m sure a
lot of you have been wondering ‘where’s Britt?’ The answer
given was ‘she’s injured.’ Yeah, but it takes more than that
to keep me away.

“Every time I looked in the mirror I said, ‘I’m good.’ Until
one day I wasn’t good. The room was spinning. My arm was
numb. My entire right side stopped working. I spent a week
in the hospital with a TIA. It’s called a ministroke. And I
looked in the mirror and I said, ‘Britt, you are not good.’
I told Tony I needed to stay home and get good, and Tony
Khan agreed.

“Let’s jump to the present. I’m here, I’m good, and I’m
cleared. Sunday night when I needed All Elite Wrestling,
when I needed all of you, you welcomed me back with open
arms and D.M.D. chants. And for that I will always, always
be in your corner. Because at the end of the day, I’m one of

“Let’s go to the future now, which is your motivation. When
you’re going through a hard time, go through that s—t
because when you do, it’ll make you feel better when you get
to the other side. Because we all possess the impulse to be
elite. And speaking of elite, I have to bring this up
because I heard we have a new female face of All Elite

“It must be so rewarding for her to call herself that after
shedding blood, sweat and tears and building this place up
from the ground up. It must feel great for her, right? And
C.E.O.? I’m sure she studied so hard to earn those three
letters. I don’t think we need piped in music to tell our
new friend that the only three letters that matter in this
company are D.M.D!”

TBS Champion & New NJPW STRONG Women’s Champion “The CEO”
Mercedes Moné pulled up outside the arena in an SUV, with
the horn honking, interrupting the interview!

get behind. They told Mercedes that her double championship
celebration was ready to go!

Up Next: TBS Champion & New NJPW STRONG Women’s Champion
“The CEO” Mercedes Moné’s Double Championship Celebration!

“Apparently the championship celebration is going to begin
will Britt Baker is still in the ring,” said Excalibur.

“That’s so disrespectful to the returning Dr. Britt Baker,”
added Taz.

Mercedes entered the ring with her belts, but Britt didn’t

Mercedes: “Um, oops. Britt, did I interrupt something?
Because Chicago, it’s time to celebrate with your double
champion Mercedes Moné!”

Britt: “I get it. I outshined your moment at Forbidden Door,
so now you’re trying to outshine now.”

Mercedes: “Britt what you did was irrelevant. Unlike you, I
want you to get a real good look at what a real star looks

Britt: “All In, Mercedes. I wrestled at the first All In
right here in Chicago. I was the first female to go all in
for AEW by signing that contract. I wrestled at All In in
London last year you your broke ass sat in the stands. So, I
want to face you at All In!”

Mercedes: “Britt, I’m never broke, I stay rich. And since I
am a double champion, there is a long list of girls that are
waiting in line. So, you need to get in the back, bitch.”

Britt. “What line?”

Mercedes: “I see you’re a fan, so you know what I’m going to
say next: there’s a price to pay when you mess with Mercedes

Renee Paquette was backstage to interview AEW International
Champion Will Ospreay ahead of his match tonight.

Will was accompanied by Kyle Fletcher.

Don Callis interrupted the interview before Will was able to
answer one question.

Will asked Renee to give him and Callis a minute.

Will told Callis it wasn’t Callis’ fault, and he knows Donn
will tell Will that he should have hit the Tiger Driver, but
Will isn’t that guy anymore. Will said he wanted out of the
Don Callis Family for good.

Callis: “I’m not normally in the habit of letting people of
signed agreements with me, but I’m so proud of what you’ve
done. I’m happy to do you the favor. And maybe one day I’ll
ask you for a favor, okay?”

Ospreay: “No problem.”

Callis hugged Ospreay. Callis smirked and then said, “C’mon,
Kyle.” Kyle left with Callis.

FTW Champion “The Learning Tree” Chris Jericho came to the
ring with a team of AEW security.

The security surrounded Taz who was sitting at the announce
table. “What’s going on here?” asked Taz.

Jericho: “Hi, guys! I wasn’t on the show, so I thought I’d
come guest commentate, because you know me. I’ve got to have
my TV time. And I wanted to talk about what Hook did this
past Sunday. He stole my finish, and that’s the ultimate
sign of respect and that doesn’t work for me, brother.

“Even worse was Taz, who is supposed to be an unbiased
opinion. Instead, he was standing and clapping like a mark
for Hook. And that’s why I spoke to Nicholas and Matthew
Jackson. Because if I’m doing color commentary, I can’t sit
next to you, because I don’t trust you at all. And Matthew
and Nicholas granted me this executive order that says Taz
has to vacate the arena immediately. Bye Taz!”

Taz was ushered out by security as Chris Jericho joined the
commentary desk.

The EVP’s Wild Card was… “Hangman” Adam Page!

“We have not seen ‘Hangman’ Adam Page since March of this

their past,” said Excalibur.

Page booted Jarrett in the head and then hammered down with
rabbit punches.

Renee Paquette attempted to interview “Hangman” Adam Page

The Young Bucks interrupted Renee and welcomed back Adam

Matthew: “You can say thank you anytime. Blood & Guts is
coming up. Will you be our fifth man?”

Page: “I’m not a child. I’m not a puppet. I don’t need any
more of your BS games. I am in the Owen, and I am going to
win the Owen. Do you understand me?”

Page shoved the Bucks away and walked off!
