The crowd is into Cody. Todd Martin from PWTorch is in the arena live saying that the crowd is really into him. It is coming off well on TV too.

Back to the action. Brandon Cutler’s music hits. The crowd isn’t as into this as they were for the first match. MJF is out next. The crows seems to be into him.
I don’t get why MJF didn’t come out to save his friend, Cody, if he was standing by for his match. A clear storyline hole in AEW’s show layout. Hope they can fix that in the future.
MJF does a promo on the crowd. Very good.
Brandon Cutler vs. MJF
MJF locks up with Cutler and pushes him into the turn buckle. MJF is getting the best of Cutler, Cutler slaps MJF. Botched sunset flip. Ross does a good job at making it clear that Cutler still has to earn his spot.
Cutler finally outsmarts MJF, executes a suicide dive and mounts him for some punches. Cutler goes to the top of rope and fails to connect. MJF submits Cutlter.
And we are back from a commercial break. Chris Van Vliet is at ringside. Why is he shouting? Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes are “stars”. Whatever. That was a train wreck. SoCal Uncensored air a promo. A really good Obama.
Schiovane is back on stage with SCU. The director needs to to a better job coming back and into commercials. SCU is plugging the Tag Team Tournament. Scorpio Sky announces that it will be Daniels and Kazarian in the match. Lucha Brothers come out.
They are so over here. The crowd loves them Lucha Brothers. And a brawl breaks out. For this brawl, they did a good job breaking it up. Inconsistent at best.
The Young Bucks are stretching out backstage. Jericho is seen with LAX. We “spy” on Jericho. We go to the announcers as they hype Nyla Rose v. Riho for the AEW Women’s Championship and PAC (Formerly Neville) and Adam Page.
Adam Page is out first. This match should be good. AEW needs to reposition Page. Here comes PAC. Jim Ross called Justin Roberts by Robert.
AEW needs to be careful on how they book this as both Page and PAC are future players for AEW. AEW goes to commercial before the match started.
