The Elite vs. Death Triangle (Match Four, Best of Seven Series)

An injury to Nick Jackson meant that his brother Matt and Kenny Omega of The Elite were forced to go into their battle handicapped against Pac, Penta El Zero Miedo and Ray Fenix of Death Triangle.

It was an admirable showing by two thirds of The Elite who remained in the match despite being a man down.

To everyone's surprise, a limping Nick returned to the match and tagged himself into the match but it didn't go as planned as he subsequently tapped out after being caught in an ankle lock by Fenix.

Winners: Death Triangle defeated The Elite to go up 3-1 in the series

"Jungle Boy" Jack Perry vs. Brian Cage

Following the Dynamite Diamond Battle Royal last week where "Jungle Boy" Jack Perry eliminated "The Machine" Brian Cage, the two squared up against each other on Dynamite.

In a competitive bout that Cage looked like he was about to grab a victory in due to the interference of ROH legend Prince Nana, Perry managed to claw the seemingly unlikely win to get the better of Cage once again.

Winner: "Jungle Boy" Jack Perry

The House of Black vs. The Factory

Malakai Black, Buddy Matthews and Brody King of The House of Black made their first appearance since September as they came up against The Factory's QT Marshall, Cole Karter and Aaron Solow in a lively six-man tag team match.

Black mist was sprayed in eyes of The Factory member Nick Comoroto's eyes by House of Black member Julia Hart which immediately turned the tides of winning towards the heel faction.

Matthews and King took advantage of The Factory by demolishing by as Black put the finishing touches to a successful night by landing Black Mass on Marshall for the three-count.

Winners: The House of Black

Action Andretti vs. Chris Jericho

A supremely confident Chris Jericho went up against the 24-year-old Action Andretti, who the former AEW World Champion labelled as a "jobber".

In a surprise to many, including Jericho, Andretti's resilience was admirable and even led to him kicking out of the potent Codebreaker, which not many do.

Andretti's unwavering faith was soon rewarded as he struck the veteran with a tornado DDT before landing a running Shooting Star Press to earn a massive victory over the wrestling legend.

Winner: Action Andretti

Ruby Soho vs. Tay Melo

After being forced out of action for three months by Tay Melo, Ruby Soho returned for revenge.

For the most part, it was a controlling performance by Melo who seemed to have the best of Soho as she looked to a cruise to a victory.

However, it didn't go as smoothly as she thought as her patented Tay-KO was avoided by Soho who struck Melo with a knee to the nose.

Soho's No Future was then enough to gain the victory over her rival.

Winner: Ruby Soho

AEW World Championship and Dynamite Diamond Ring Match: Ricky Starks vs. MJF

The reigning, defending, AEW World Champion MJF put his belt and his Dynamite Diamond Ring on the line against Ricky Starks in an extremely high-stakes match.

MJF's crafty tactics meant he targeted Starks' injured midsection throughout the match before the challenger looked able to gain a second wind.

Starks attempted to pull off Rochambeau on several occasions for a shock win but was unable to pull off the victory with MJF using the referee as a shield.

In true MJF fashion, he hit Starks with a low blow to grab an underwhelming victory and retain his title and his valuable ring.

Winner: MJF
