*Live from Long Island, NY.

*Darby Allin appealed to Tony Khan to allow him & Jeff Hardy to get psychotic…we find out a little later that Tony Khan obliged.

*Hangman Adam Page joins commentary…CM Punk comes to the ring in a John Tavares jersey…& just like that CM Punk is a full-on heel for one night here on Long Island.

(2)  CM Punk defeats John Silver…Punk stares down Page before hitting a Buckshot Lariat for the win (08:09)…AFTER…Hangman Page heads to the ring & gets face-to-face with Punk…Punk reminds Page that none of this is personal, it’s just business…Punk offers a sarcastic handshake…Hangman flips him the bird & walks off.

*Britt Baker (with Rebel, Hayter) backstage with Schiavone…Britt says that facing the Joker is just another example of the conspiracy against her…but that’s OK because she will win anyway…and Jamie Hayter will handle Storm tonight, too.

*Wardlow led to the ring by Security, in cuffs…after a “Dark Side of the Ring” spoof that you must make sure you find time to watch…MJF heads to the ring in his personalized Islanders jersey…if Wardlow wins at Double or Nothing, he will be freed from his contract with MJF…but to get there, Wardlow must (1) take 10 whips from MJF, (2) win a cage match against Shawn Spears with MJF as guest referee, & (3) understand that if he loses to MJF he can never sign a contract with AEW…Wardlow is un-cuffed…he signs, then decimates Security & Spears…when he gets his hands on MJF, Mark Sterling jumps on Wardlow’s back & saves MJF, but Sterling gets powerbombed through the table as penance.

*Jay Lethal/Sonjay Dutt/Satnam Singh dueling promos with Samoa Joe…Lethal/Dutt childishly make fun of Joe…Joe promises that after he wins the Owen Hart Tournament he’s coming for Lethal & company.

(4)  Ricky Starks defeats Jungle Boy…retains his FTW ChampionshipSwerve Strickland comes to ringside to stop Starks from walking off mid-match…but as the ref sends Swerve away he misses Jungle Boy rolling up Starks for what could have been a 10 count…a moment later Starks hits the Rochambeau for the win (09:58)…AFTER…Luchasaurus & Christian down to tend to Jungle Boy, not pleased with Swerve…Starks & Powerhouse Hobbs begin to walk down Swerve outside the ring…Keith Lee down to keep Swerve & Hobbs from starting trouble.

*Jericho Appreciation Society to the ring…Jericho takes some personal shots at Eddie Kingston…Jon Moxley comes through the fans to ringside…Jericho tells him to take off because it’s 5-on-1…William Regal, Bryan Danielson, & Wheeler Yuta down to make it 5-on-4…Eddie Kingston, Santana & Ortiz appear & now the JAS is at a disadvantage…the brawl is on…Jericho escapes to the floor, but eats a left hook from Regal before the JAS flees up the ramp.
