The two men start out with a lock-up, but Jon Moxley quickly starts firing in shots only for CM Punk to respond by slapping him as he then fires knees into his opponent in the corner. Moxley connects with a headbutt and Punk responds with a roundhouse kick, but he immediately goes down and starts selling his foot injury, the doctor appears but Punk walks into a King Kong lariat, and then the classic elbows to the head that he’s known for.
Moxley pulls at the injured ankle and connects with the Death Rider, leaving Punk laying, he hits another one and just like that, this one is over.
Winner (and Undisputed AEW World Champion): Jon Moxley
After the match Moxley heads to the crowd in order to celebrate with the title, meanwhile CM Punk has to be helped to the back.
Tony Schiavone is then shown backstage with Christian Cage, who says that Jungle Boy will never be as smart as him, and he says he has seen it all and done it all. He claims at All Out, Jungle Boy will see why he’s not in his league as he accepts the challenge.
Ricky Starks then makes his way out to the ring, and he says he hasn’t been in the best of moods as he is hurt and p*ssed off, from Team Taz being over, The Factory, and Powerhouse Hobbs turning on him. He’s got veterans saying this is showbiz, but he thought he’d be the exception as Hobbs would ring him every day last year when he broke his neck, while he says Hobbs was the background player until he brought him to his table, if he found a spot he made sure it was big enough for them both.
Starks says Hobbs him in his neck, and he knows he was close to losing all of this again. He considered him a friend but now he considers him a snake, and where he’s from he cuts the head off snakes, and he tells Hobbs to fight him at All Out.
Jon Moxley is backstage and he asks if that wasn’t how it was supposed to go? Those who are writing him off are those that pointed out he was Interim Champion, and he says he is not just some guy, he is THE guy in this industry. He doesn’t follow any rules and people ask when it will be his time, and is telling everyone that his time is right now.
