The show kicked off with Darby Allin defeating Cole Karter after taking out Nick Comoroto with a bat before the bell.

Renee Paquette asked Keith Lee what was going on with Swerve. Shane Taylor interrupted saying that they had unfinished business and challenged Lee and a partner of his choosing to a match at ROH Final Battle with him and JD Griffey. After Taylor left, Swerve appeared behind Lee mischievously smiling. Lee questioned if he could count on Swerve and then walked off.

A video aired with Dark Order talking about the shocking betrayal of Preston Vance last week. Silver & Reynolds warned that someday soon they would be face to face with Vance and he would realize that he made the biggest mistake of his life.

Renee Paquette conducted an in-ring interview with The Acclaimed where they stated they were fighting champions and would defend their titles against “the best”. The Gunns interrupted proclaiming themselves the best only to be interrupted themselves by Jeff Jarrett, Jay Lethal, Sonjay Dutt and Satnam Singh. Daddy Ass got on the mic to reaffirm that they wanted to face “the best” which led to FTR coming out and shaking hands with The Acclaimed seemingly indicating a title match in the near future.

A promo package aired highlighting the issues that arose between Hikaru Shida and The Bunny. Shida accepted a match with The Bunny but said she would be putting her Regina Di Wave Championship on the line.

Jeff Jarrett and Jay Lethal defeated Private Party after a referee distraction caused Jarrett and Lethal to gain the advantage. 

Backstage Renee Paquette interviewed Saraya about her comeback match at Full Gear. Saraya declared that her next step is going to be obtaining the AEW Women’s Championship.

Athena defeated Dani Mo in a squash match. After the match Athena continued the beat down on Mo until referees finally stopped her. 

A video aired featuring Juice Robinson issuing a challenge to Samoa Joe for the ROH Television Championship at Final Battle on December 10th. 

Darby Allin challenged Samoa Joe to a TNT Championship match with both Wardlow and Sting banned from ringside.

Orange Cassidy retained the All-Atlantic Championship in the main event despite interference by Kip Sabian and Penelope Ford.

After the match Cassidy and Sabian brawled up the ramp as the lumberjacks all brawled in the ring. The lights went out and House of Black appeared demolishing everyone in sight.
