Rush defeated Cody Chhun (0:38)

Chhun missed a splash in the corner right away then Rush hit a forearm and the dropkick in the corner. That was it.

After the match, Rush pulled Chhun to the floor and beat him up around the ringside area. Rush whipped and choked Chhun with an electrial cable.

– Lexi Nair checked in with Bryan Danielson for a medical update, stemming from events that happened during the Collision main event. FTR won’t make Dynamite this Wednesday, but Danielson will be, looking for the Young Bucks.

“The Virtuoso” Deonna Purrazzo defeated Robyn Renegade

Lots of good work on the mat to start. Purrazzo countered a sunset flip attempt with a juji gatame, but Renegade escaped by making it to the ropes.

After a split-screen break, Renegade hit a flying clothesline to make a comeback. Renegade hung Purrazzo up in the ropes and hit a dropkick for two. Purrazzo came back with a pump kick. Purrazzo hit another pump kick, then locked in the armbar for a submission.

After the match, Purrazzo put Renegade in her finisher until Thunder Rosa ran Purrazzo out of the ring. When Rosa went to check on Renegade, Purrazzo snuck back in the ring for a cheap shot on Rosa. Rosa caught Purrazzo up the ramp and whipped her into the ring apron. Purrazzo escaped through the crowd.

– Another vignette for Scorpio Sky. This one sounded like Sky would be coming back as an insincere babyface.

– A commercial for Double or Nothing promoted the show with a triple main event: Willow/Mercedes, Swerve/Christian, and Anarchy in the Arena.

– Sonjay Dutt will look to collect the bounty on Bryan Danielson, and he’s booked a match for Danielson with Satnam Singh. Let’s see Danielson work a miracle against Singh.
