This was kinda my secondary pick but that doesn’t really count, eh? Awesome match to kick things off nonetheless, helluva start for AEW Bash At The Beach. Looks like they’ll be facing SCU for the AEW World Tag Team titles next week!
Cody Rhodes makes his way out, thunderous ovation and chant of his name! Cody mentions how he asked MJF to name his price, and he has; it’s rather expensive. We see MJF’s stipulations for a Revolution match flash on screen, crowd boos. Cody specifically notes the Steel Cage match with Wardlow and he says it surprises him. It surprises him because he thinks once Wardlow takes that suit off and people see what he can do, they might conclude that perhaps he shouldn’t be carrying MJF’s bags, MJF should be carrying his! Crowd reacts big to that, chant of “Bag Boy”. Cody moves on to the 10 lashes on live TV. I just now noticed the stage includes a lifeguard, incredible. AEW Bash At The Beach, such a rad theme.
Cody says if his skin breaks, if he bleeds courtesy of a leather belt, if he thinks that’s the worst thing that can come from their rivalry he is mistaken. Last stip, he can’t touch him until Revolution. He says he doesn’t need to touch MJF because he takes permanent residence in his brain, everyone knows what he is doing, he is stalling! Calls him a pampered kid who his parents took onto the Rosie O’Donnell show. Talks up how the veterans always put MJF on a pedestal, talk him up as an oldschool heel, less is more. He says less is more because MJF can’t do more! He accepts the stips! At Revolution, he is going to give him his own goddamn scar.
Backstage, Joey Janela talks up his feud with Kip Sabian and Penelope Ford. Notes how he never wanted anything to do with his ex, but she can’t help but try and make her name off him. Talks up how he was disappointed with how his last year went but next week he gets a chance at one of the best in the game in Rey Fenix. He promises to show us why they call him a bad, bad boy.
AEW Bash At The Beach continues, Nightmare Collective out for their match. Statlander out, but as Shida comes out Dr. Luther blocks her path! Mel and Brandi jump Kris, Shida uses her kendo stick to deal with Luther before coming in for the save!
Nightmare Collective vs. Kris Statlander & Hikaru Shida
Shida and Mel start, Mel is much taller than I thought. Shida with a rana takes her to the floor, Statlander with a back kick, moonsault off the apron clips Mel. Shida grabs the chair and sits it up! Kris helps keep it in place as Shida uses it as a platform for the running high knee! Throws Mel into the ring, double dropkick! Hikaru covers for 2. Brandi distracts Shida with a cheap shot, big boot from Mel! Brandi tags in, stomps Shida to the mat. Grinds the boot into her face. Mel comes in, a false tag here behind the ref’s back! Chokes Shida with the boot in the corner. Shida trying to fight her way up, Mel with a trip. Commercial break as Mel stretches Shida out in the ropes. Look at this, an actual commercial!
We come back in time to see Mel getting a nearfall. “Let’s Go Shida” chant as Mel hooks her for a suplex, but Shida blocking it. Trying to reverse but the size difference makes it tough. Shida fights out, elbow strikes, Mel with a big blow quells her. Hits the ropes, but Shida with a running knee strike!
Tag to Brandi, tag to Kris as well and Brandi suddenly reverses direction! She’s begging off! Statlander with a mean roundhouse kick to the head! Discus Clothesline! Fisherwoman’s Driver, Mel has to break up the pin! Shida up top, flying karate kick takes Mel out of the ring! Pursues, Mel slams her into the barrier! Brandi with a spear to Statlander, narrow nearfall! Mel tags in, awesome Black Hole Slam for a nearfall! Mel up top, Shida comes in to stop her, superplex! Statlander with a running knee strike, cover for 1 shockingly! Shida with a knee to the back of the head, Shida tries to block Brandi but she manages to escape and break up the count! Mel with a double clothesline on both women! Statlander reverses a powerslam, Big Bang Theory for the victory!

AEW Bash At The Beach continues, Sammy Guevara does his sign gimmick during commercial again. Moxley of course shows up in his Ford GT!
Jon Moxley vs. Sammy Guevara
Guevara with an opening strut but takes a big lariat. Guevara fights back with a springing cutter. Fight to the apron, Guevara with a brutal double footstomp on Mox taking him to the floor! Throws him into the barrier, poses in the ring! Commercial break, match continues in the inset, Guevara chokes Jon against the bottom rope, kick to the face, cover for 2. Guevara with a delayed, pumping Samoan Drop. Uppercut against the ropes, Guevara drives Mox’s head into the top buckle. Mox fights back… superplex! German, Guevara flips and lands on his feet, Standing Shooting Star for a nearfall! Superkick dodged, victory roll though for a nearfall.

Jericho’s music hits… and the lights go out! When they come back, Jericho, P-N-P and Jake Hager are in the ring! Mox charges right into the fray but is swiftly overwhelmed! Heat rains down as he’s pummeled against the mat! Hager holds Mox in a Cobra Clutch like choke as Jericho actually whips Mox across the back with that massive AEW World title! P-N-P hold Mox up now as Jericho seems to be rearing up another shot but Hager gets him with a low blow instead! P-N-P hold Mox up again and let Guevara slap him! Mox is a lone wolf with no friends in the locker room as they note. Jericho takes a spike off his jacket as everyone holds him down! Jericho jabs him, seemingly right in the eye! “Asshole” chant as Jericho celebrates! Quite the assault here at AEW Bash At The Beach. Referees file into the ring to break it up.
Backstage, the Inner Circle being interviewed. Jericho says they offered Mox the keys to the kingdom but he attacked him with a bottle. Says it’s an eye for an eye. They’ll keep an eye on him ’cause he’s only got one left. Whoever wins between PAC and Darby Allin goes straight to Le Champion. Says we’ll see Mox around, even though he can’t see us!
AEW Bash At The Beach continues with a very special six-man tag match!
MJF, The Butcher & The Blade vs. Diamond Dallas Page, QT Marshall & Dustin Rhodes

QT Marshall tags in and now suddenly MJF wants back in, makes the tag. Maxwell with a kick, QT throws him off but eats a shoulder block. MJF with an evasion, QT with a roll-through over him, stand-off. MJF gives him a golf clap. Offers a faux hand, QT flips him off!

Takes Darby atop them, powerbomb right onto the top of the steps, Jesus! That’s a commercial break spot, folks! PAC rolls into the ring, tries to get a count out win! Darby makes it to the ring in what I assume was the nick of time. PAC teases a Standing Shooting Star or something but just gets him in a crossface instead, Darby grabs the ropes.

Afterwards Tony Schiavone in the ring with PAC, who tries to argue that since Mox is incapacitated, he’s already the No. 1 Contender! But we see Mox come out of the ambulance, patch over his eye, legit looking like Big Boss from MGS as he comes onto the stage to say he doesn’t care if he has no eyes, he’ll show up next week and kick PAC’s ass!
