Scott D’Amore is with the locker room and tells them to head to the ring as he’s going to address Kenny Omega’s championship. Callis walks out and thanks him for herding the wolves. D’Amore makes it clear that Kenny must be in the building for his appearances or he’ll be stripped from the title. Callis gets on the phone.
After the intro, D’Amore congratulates Kenny Omega and thanks Rich Swann for his efforts. He makes clear there was no rematch clause. He announces that at May 15 at Under Siege, they’re going to have a six-way match to determine the number one contender, but if Kenny doesn’t make it tonight, it will be for the title. D’Amore books Jake Something and Chris Bey in the opening qualifier.
Jake Something vs. Chris Bey
Both men battle it out as they show off their respective strengths. Bey is catching Something off guard with his speed and hits a running elbow in the corner. He comes off with a diving forearm up top.
Something fires back with some lariats and gives Bey a big sit-out powerbomb. Two count. Bey does rolls Something over with a sunset bomb and it gives both men an opportunity to recover. Something goes for a tombstone but Bey shakes himself free and soon finds himself once more in peril and goes for a powder on the apron.
Rohit grabs the leg of Something and it allows Bey to take advantage and get the tainted pin and win.
WINNER: Chris Bey
Callis is on the phone and tells Kenny to “take the jet.” Enter Sami Callihan. He says if Kenny shows up he’ll be coming for what’s mine.
Taylor Wilde is being interviewed by Gia Miller about her return but is interrupted by Tenille Dashwood who makes her partner pitch. Kaleb thinks it will be a match made in heaven.
