Cassidy remained the champion due to a count-out. This was the first time it happened for Cassidy since he joined the AEW roster. The rest came during his Indies tours.

It was just one of five matches in Cassidy’s career that resulted in a count out, according to Cage Match. It was the first time it happened in nearly six years, as there was a double count-out between Cassidy and UltraMantis Black at the Powerbomb.TV Futures TV show at GSW Arena in Old Forge, Pennsylvania.

AEW Women’s World Champion Toni Storm retained her belt. She defeated Taya Valkyrie. It was the first time that these two competitors faced each other.

Finally, in the AEW TNT Title match, Luchasaurus defeated Shawn Spears. Luchasaurus became the AEW TNT Champion when he defeated Wardlow during the inaugural AEW Collision on June 17th at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois.
