Jon Moxley, better known to most wrestling fans as Dean Ambrose, made his debut with AEW after the main event match between Kenny Omega and Chris Jericho. The match saw Jericho defeat Omega and earn a spot in the first ever AEW heavyweight title match against Adam “Hangman” Page.

As Jericho was cutting a promo post-match, Moxley came in through the crowd and dropped Jericho with Dirty Deeds. He then did the same to the referee and tried to do the same to Omega only to see Omega block the move and touch off a wild brawl through the crowd. The brawl led to Moxley hitting Omega with Dirty Deeds on top of a stack of poker chips, only to toss him off and through a table.
