AEW also provided a stage for Julia Hart and Willow Nightingale to vie for the TBS Championship, with Nightingale emerging victorious. This win, coupled with a promising challenge from Mercedes Mone, sets the stage for future enthralling encounters.

The event was rounded out with a six-man tag team match that saw the House of Black triumph over Adam Copeland, Eddie Kingston, and Mark Briscoe, further intensifying ongoing rivalries.
