Impact World Tag Team Champions The Good Brothers def. Jay White and Chris Bey (Non-Title)
Good Brothers just regained the Impact World Tag Team Championship at Slammiversary, so it would have been weird for them to lose a non-title match already. Even still, I wouldn't have had White lost his IMPACT debut, even if it was Bey who got pinned. White and Bey worked well together and thankfully aren't done yet as partners seeing as how they ambushed FinJuice backstage later in the night. White was the best part of this outing and it was an adequate opener.
Jordan Devlin def. Tristian Archer
It was just last week that we saw Archer in action against Joseph Conners, but he never had a chance here. Rather, this was way more of a squash but still a fun opener with Devlin sticking to his winning ways. A-Kid walked out on a crutch before revealing it was a ruse, setting up the 30-minute Iron Man (the first of its kind on the brand) between the two of them for next week's show. That should be a banger.
Jaxson Ryker def. Drew Gulak
Ryker receiving a flat reaction during his entrance hardly surprised me, but to his credit, the crowd seemed to warm up to him by the end. Personally, I find him to be completely bland as a babyface and just in general, so he's right where he should be on Main Event. Gulak has always deserved better, but he's settled into his role as an enhancement guy and I've lost all hope that he'll ever be pushed at a level higher than where he is right now. This was a perfectly serviceable match, but most of Ryker's matches do nothing for me.
The Elite (AEW World Champion Kenny Omega, AEW World Tag Team Champions The Young Bucks, and Impact World Tag Team Champions The Good Brothers) def. "Hangman" Adam Page and The Dark Order (John Silver, Alex Reynolds, Stu Grayson and Evil Uno) in a 5-on-5 Elimination Tag Team Match
If Page and Dark Order won, they would have been awarded shots at the AEW World Championship (for Page) and at the AEW World Tag Team Championship (for two members of Dark Order), but because The Elite won, none of them get title shots. Obviously, I expect we're still getting Page vs. Omega at some point, most likely at All Out, but I'm curious how they'll get there now. The match itself was a ton of fun. I typically don't like the rapid-fire eliminations, but I thought the order of eliminations was well done here. The entrances were also awesome for different reasons. My biggest nitpick with this match was that there was way too much interaction between Page and Omega. I would have saved them finally coming to blows until All Out, but even if not, they didn't need to give away so much in this matchup. Omega pinning Page was questionable as well, but I'm sure the endgame remains the same with Page beating him for the AEW World Championship, regardless of who's being brought in soon.
