Jake Hager had his own video camera crew. He went to chat with Orange Cassidy. He told Orange to come ringside for Jericho’s match, tonight. Cassidy brought his foot up on Jake’s leg. He pushed it away and told Orange it would be in his best interest to be out there. After Jake left, Orange went looking in his backpack. Hmmm…

T here is going to be a Countdown to All Out Special on TNT on Saturday.

Tully Blanchard talked with FTR. Tully discussed how Cash and Dax won the Gauntlet to get the title shot, this Week-end. He said they had one more step to reach the peark. Cash said their legacy would be gone if they lost. Dax said he likes Page but he still had to beat him and Kenny Omega.

Tony Schiavone was in the ring to talk with Kenny Omega. It was interesting that “Hangman” Adam Page wasn’t out there with his partner.

Tony brought up the issues between Page and the Elite. Kenny said Page just made a mistake and would have to deal with the results. He said the cockroaches, FTR, fooled Page. Kenny said he and Page would bring their “A Game”.

FTR strolled out with a cooler. Dax was impressed that two singles guys could mesh into tag champs. Dax wanted a toast with Omega. They gave him chocolate milk. Omega took it and shook it up. Kenny called FTR something obscene and said it was time to fight. Kenny laughed as he looked at Tully. Kenny told them to go ahead and fight. Kenny made fun of Tully’s age. Adam Page walked from the back. Dax said Page made his own choices, so don’t blame FTR. Dax told Adam to tell Kenny just how big a piece of Sh*t he is. Kenny told Adam not to fall for this. FTR continued to disrespect Page and Omega. Page went to hand one of the tag belts to Omega, who was on the floor.

ALex talked with Chris Jericho. Chris asked Marvez when he last experienced a First. Jericho said his Mimosa Mayhem match would finally bring his feud with Orange Cassidy to an end. Chris mentioned about his strategy for drowning Cassidy in 500 gallons of Mimosa. Joey Janela will be a sarificial lamb tonight, thanks to Jericho.

“Bad Boy” Joey Janela vs “Le Champion” Chris Jericho

Joey looks a lot like a young Michael Hayes. It was time for a full break.

Jake Hager came out with Jericho. Another cool jacket for Chris. The ring announcer messed up on Jericho’s weight, putting him at 335 pounds. That’s just Chris’ ego size. LOL! The crowd sang Jericho’s entrance music. It might Chris smile. Orange Cassidy strolled through the arena to watch this match. Jericho looked aggravated. Cassidy just sat down after dropping his backpack. Jericho was wearing an Orange Cassidy shirt.

We got a video preview of the Sammy Guevara vs Matt Hardy match at All Out. These two have bruatlized each other for a couple weeks. They will battle in a “Broken Rules Match”, whatever the heck that is. Matt said if he loses, he will leave AEW.

Sammy was out with his signs. Matt Hardy watched on as Sammy showed off the cards that we have a hard tme reading, because we are in Split Screen. Matt had cards of his own.

Team Taz strolled from the back. Ricky Starks and Brian Cage walked aside their leader, Taz. Taz said one of his men will win the Casino Battle Royale. Taz threw out names for those who would get annihilated.

Jake Roberts came out to break up things. He had the Murder Hawk at his side. Jake promised Taz’s boys won’t get anywhere. He called them losers. Jake did his best to keep Lance Archer calm. Eddie Kingston then came out with his crew to shut everyone else down. Tully came out with Shawn Spears. Eddie insulted everyone in sight.

It broke down into complete chaos. Billy Gunn and Darby Allin also got involved. Pentagon and Rey Fenix jumped in the mix. The Inner Cricle and Best Friends joined the party. Shawn Spears jumped in, as well. I’m betting Shawn takes it. We went back to Split Screen.

Jake grinned at the chaos. Ortiz found a chair but dind’t get to use it. The was totally out of control. Archer brutalized anyone he could reach. Eddie was alid out. Ricky and Cage worked together to go after Archer. The fight went all over the ringside area.

Tony talked with Big Swole. She will face Britt Baker, at the pre-show. Swole warned that Baker will not be able to dodge her. A pizza was delivered to Tony. It was distraction so Baker could attack.
