Malakai Black might have bit off more than he can chew, considering how many people he's misted over the past few months. PAC, Miro, now Sting? Maybe this leads to a trios match -- House of Black vs. Darby Allin, Sting & Miro? Maybe the sight of the shark cage will bring out Sting's old buddy Robocop?

Absolutely great tag match between Best Friends and BCC. It shocks me that Best Friends have never held titles in AEW, but maybe if the rumors of an upcoming trios tournament are true that will change.

My only qualm is that I don't like when people kick out of piledrivers as if they're transitional moves, and here's Yuta kicking out of three?

Bonus match alert: Ricky Starks defends the FTW Championships pretty well, but the real headline is that next week he'll face DANHAUSEN. I am totally looking forward to Danhausen winning the belt and then being horrified at what "FTW" stands for.

Weird, I just realized that when I entered the match card above I totally forgot to include the main event:

Barbed Wire Match between Chris Jericho (as "The Painmaker") vs Eddie Kingston! It was overbooked like hell but still a lot of fun! The shark tank was a dumb stipulation put on by the network, but even so! What does Anna Jay's heel turn mean for the Dark Order?

Minister for Violence Lord-Admiral Chancellor Sir Steven William Regal, OBE, CBE, MBE, GBE, told us right there that he has cracked the code of the piledriver, to wit, turning one's head slightly.
