AEW Tag Team Title Number One Contender Match
Private Party vs Best Friends
(referee: Rick Knox)
Result: Trent pins Marq Quen after Strong Zero
Very good match. Private Party took a little while to get warmed up, but they started to dominate late in the match. Best Friends were solid throughout, and they seemed to approach this match in a more straightforward manner. Private Party attempted a lot of complicated double-team moves, and not all of them worked out so well for them. I think that started to cost Private Party as the match went on. Overall though, this was another strong performance for Best Friends. They are definitely on a roll in 2020.
Tony Shiavone welcomes Arn Anderson. Anderson isn’t impressed by Archer breaking a toilet with a sledgehammer. Anderson then starts to talk about a lot of “what ifs” during tonight’s TNT Title match. Regardless of what might happen, the title will be decided in the ring between Archer and Cody. Anderson says Cody is a leader, and tonight he will start his legacy.
Jon Moxley says he’s pissed off at Brodie Lee, but more than that, he’s disappointed.
Excalibur welcomes Tony Shiavone and Jim Ross to the commentary table.
