A great back and forth match that saw the ground game of Kingston mix it up with the striking ability of PAC. The action started off fast with PAC attacking his rival and kicking him through the ropes. Once they got back in the ring, Kingston uses his submission abilities to hold down PAC. However, Kingston seemed to be favoring his shoulder and after PAC hit the Falcon Arrow, that was the end of the match!
Chuck Taylor started out like a house of cards and attacked the muscular MIRO. Once he gets back in the ring, however, it was all the Bulgarian Brute. As he hit a series of clotheslines and suplexes, Taylor was overpowered and could not overcome the GAME OVER Camel Clutch.

Omega and Callis leave the Good Brothers to their fate as they leave.
If you've seen this on AEW Dark, you know how it's going to go. Britt makes the audience think they got something under their chairs, they still fall for it. Reba plays the Ed McMahon role quite well. When they introduce Cody they bring out sparklers to fulfill contractual obligations. So they're keeping the Snoop Dogg remix. Britt says that Cody's child will have an action figure long before she does. Before the EVP speaks, Britt introduces Jade Cargill who shades and says that Cody did her a huge favor. Where is her opponent?
She smacks Cody and he's not going to retaliate, but Red Velvet does, and she attacks, and apparently so does the entire AEW Women's Division. We see a clip of Britt attacking Thunder Rosa, and Rosa says that she will eventually have to wrestle. Tony Khan grants their wish on February 3rd at Beach Break.
