– Christian Cage (c) def. Darby Allin 2-1 in a 2-Out-Of-3 Falls Match to retain the TNT Championship

Darby won the first fall and Christian won the second fall via count-out when Christian slammed Darby on the steel ring steps. Darby was being taken to the back on a stretcher, but Christian frog splashed him on top of the stretcher. Christian then ripped the padding of the ring and hit the Killswitch on the wooden ring floor, but Darby kicked out.

Christian low-blowed Darby and tried to use the TNT Title, but Nick Wayne snatched the title away. Nick then turned heel on Darby out of nowhere and hit him with the title. Christian then pinned Darby to win the 3rd fall.

Cage & Wayne kept attacking Darby, which led to Sting coming out to make the save. Luchasaurus then joined in. Christian was about to hit the Con-Chair-To on Sting, but the lights went out.

WWE Hall of Fame Edge then made his debut! He came out to his usual Metalingus theme song! It looked like Edge was about to turn heel, but he attacked the heels with the chair and delivered spears! Adam Copeland is All Elite! They still called him The Rated-R Superstar! Edge shook hands with Darby & Sting to end the PPV.
