NO ROPES/SUBMISSIONS ONLY – PHOENIX OF RISE CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH: Kylie Rae Def. Mercedes Martinez (New Champion)
PHOENIX OF RISE CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH: Zoe Lucas Def. Kylie Rae (New Champion)
- After a hard-fought contest between two top stars, Kylie was able to tap out Mercedes with a cross face. The celebration was on for the new champion. Kylie’s long time friend Miranda Alize joined Rae in the ring to celebrate, or so we thought. To the surprise of everyone, Alize attacked her friend in vicious fashion, until Kylie’s opponent and former champion Mercedes Martinez ran Alize away. After Mercedes forced Alize to leave the ringside area, winner of the #1 contender battle royal Zoe Lucas appeared and announced to the sold out crown she would be taking her championship opportunity right then and there. She would enter the ring, and after a scorpion kick, would pin Kylie Rae and become the new Phoenix of Rise Champion (the 2nd P.O.R. title change of the night).
- In her celebration and arrogance, Zoe told Kylie and the audience that she just “beat the ELITE”. This would bring out a surprise appearance by All Elite Wrestling’s Brandi Rhodes, Britt Baker, and Nyla Rose. They would eventually beat down Zoe and company. From there Penelope Ford and Allie would join Rhodes, Baker, Rae, and Rose in the ring, as the pay-per-view ended with the capacity crowd chanting ‘AEW’.
