MJF vs. Rush

MJF & Rush start the match fast by trading strikes before going into a chop exchange as MJF gets an eye poke.

Rush takes control over the next couple of minutes and sets up MJF in the corner for Bull’s Horns but pulls back and taunts the crowd.

MJF tries to mount a comeback but Rush takes over and goes for Bull’s Horns again, but this time MJF is able to dodge it. MJF goes for a couple of pin attempts including hitting a DDT for two.

They continue going back & forth before MJF slips off the middle rope right into a punch by Rush followed by a Piledriver for a two count.

Rush hits Rush erman Punch knocking MJF to the outside where Rush starts tossing MJF against the barricades. MJF is shown busted open from the nose as Paul Turner stops Rush from using a chair.

As Turner is putting the chair away, Rush starts whipping MJF with a cable before Turner finally breaks it up.

Rush stays in control by taking out MJF with a suplex off the apron before trying Bull’s Horns back inside but gets stopped with a lariat from MJF.

MJF follows with 10 punches in the corner with the bite then Heatseeker follow by a brainbuster to get the win.

Winner: MJF

After the match we see Cage Of Agony & Hechicero on the screen as Brian Cage says he has Hechicero ready to fight MJF at Forbidden Door.

Backstage Renee Paquette is with Orange Cassidy, Kyle O’Reilly, Mark Briscoe & Dante Martin and asks Cassidy about Dante joining their alliance. Cassidy tells Paquette to get a word with Briscoe instead as Briscoe talks about the word of the day being both vengeance & redemption as Jack Perry walks through the shot. Briscoe tells him to get the hell out of the way and gets all amped and starts yelling into the camera as the rest of his team gets hyped. Cassidy asks Paquette if she wants one of his bracelets before asking Who is that guy?.

International Champion Will Ospreay says last time they were in the ring together AEW World Champion Swerve Strickland said that he can’t carry the weight of both worlds, but funny enough is very well capable of doing that. He talks about holding 3 different championships in 3 different continents at the same time and Strickland is about to find out that he is the best wrestler in the world today. Strickland says that he is the best wrestler in the world and talks about carrying 2 worlds also in wrestling and the entertainment world and has been doing it all by himself. Strickland reminds Ospreay that he didn’t beat Kenny Omega by himself at Forbidden Door and asks if he will get on the phone with Don Callis to try and take the title from him. Ospreay says he doesn’t need Callis or The Don Callis Family and he can do this by himself, as we see The Family in the back looking angry.

Ospreay says All In was only the start of the Summer of Ospreay, as after that it was Kazuchika Okada, Shingo Takagi & Chris Jericho and says while Swerve had a Hit Row he had a hitlist and didn’t miss. Ospreay says the ‘Killshot’ Strickland promised might be a few centimeters off and that he doesn’t need a certain move to win but the pain that Strickland would feel from the Tiger Driver will make sure Swerve doesn’t walk. They continue comparing their main event spots before Strickland says that Ospreay has new friends dancing with Mercedes Mone’ & Shota Umino while he doesn’t have friends anymore as he got rid of them. Swerve asks if he breaks Ospreay’s arm or leg, who will he be then? Strickland talks about how he would be the same, no matter how they change him and talks about Ospreay having to sacrifice his family and not being ready for that but Ospreay cuts him off and tells Strickland to not dare mention his son again and to not make this personal. Nana interrupts and says this is not the place or the time, and they need to save that fire for Forbidden Door. Ospreay takes the mic before Nana can ask who’s house and says it’s his and starts to leave. Strickland then stops him and asks if he does want to make it personal because it’s always personal and tells Ospreay to send his regards to Al & Harry as Ospreay re enters and gets right in Strickland’s face.

We go back to The Don Callis Family as Trent Beretta says that Ospreay betrayed The Don Callis Family as Callis tells them that he knows Ospreay better than his mother and this is all going to be fine. They walk off with Kyle Fletcher standing there looking conflicted.

Mariah May says this match will be difficult for her and understands this is to prove who’s the better woman but tells them that she loves them both and no matter what happens at Forbidden Door but before she can continue Mina Shirakawa gets on the mic and tells her to shut up. Shirakawa says Women’s Champion Toni Storm was a legend in Stardom and became a star in AEW but as champion, she got soft and weak and everybody said We Want Mina and nobody wants Storm. At Forbidden Door she will take her title and her girl as she goes to sign the contract.

Storm says if Shirakawa raises her voice like that again to May, she will slap Shirakawa’s tits off. Storm says the buffet is wide open and tells Shirakawa to grab a bowl and line up and she gives Mina some advice which is to chin up, tits out and watch for the shoe before signing the contract. Shirakawa grabs the mic and tells May that she must choose between her & Storm but The Outcasts come out and interrupt them. Saraya says she is so sick of this and them and says she didn’t come alone as we see Anna Jay show up to help Saraya & Cameron attack Storm, May & Shirakawa.

Backstage Renee Paquette is with Private Party and says they made quite an impression last week on TV Time and asks if they will be taking that momentum into their match with Komander & Metalik on Rampage. Before they can say much, they get interrupted by The Learning Tree as FTW Champion Chris Jericho gives his branches the lesson that when you face luchadores you always avoid the move of the piledriver, and whenever someone tried to do it on him, he would tell them That doesn’t work for me brother.
