AEW Women’s Champion Hikaru Shida ran out and made the save.
Ryo Mizunami beat Aja Kong by count out. They brawled to the outside. Kong tossed her mini trash can she uses a weapon to a reluctant Hikaru Shida sitting at ringside and rammed Mizunami’s into it. Kong slowly walked back to the ring but Mizunami quickly recovered and gave her a diving leg drop outside the ring and beat the ten count for the win.
Britt Baker beat Madi Wrenkowski by submission with the lock jaw in an American 1st Round Match. Rebel helped Baker continue the attack after it was over and they drew on her face.
