Kenny Omega (w/ Don Callis) defeated Matt Sydal (w/ Mike Sydal)

This was a fantastic opener and Sydal's best match in years.

If Sydal wins, he earns an AEW World Championship shot. Callis joined commentary for the match.

They performed chain wrestling to start. Omega tried to establish a power advantage, but Sydal used his agility to evade some holds. Omega eventually downed Sydal with a back elbow. He laid in a hard chop, but Sydal came back with a tijeras and forced Omega to roll outside to avoid a kick.

Back in the ring, Omega regained control and beat down Sydal with shoulder blocks. Sydal avoided a V-Trigger and landed a twisting moonsault for two, following it it up with corner knees. He went to the top rope. Omega tried to counter it, was taken down by a headscissor, but immediately popped up and leveled Sydal with a lariat.

Omega continued his beatdown with a suplex on the apron and a hard backbreaker. He went for a powerbomb, but Sydal escaped and landed a couple kicks to start his comeback. Sydal followed it up with a top rope hurricanrana and a Northern Lights bomb for two. He tried for another top-rope rana, but Omega escaped and Sydal was sent crashing to the mat.

The snap dragon suplex and Aoi Shoudou followed for Omega, but Sydal countered the V-Trigger into a cradle for a great near fall. A roundhouse kick and Lightning Spiral followed for another close near fall. Sydal went for a meteora, but Omega countered it into a buckle bomb, another powerbomb, and a V-Trigger, but Sydal kicked out just before three.

Omega hit another V-Trigger, but Sydal countered out of the One-Winged Angel with a reverse hurricanrana. He set up for the shooting star press, but Omega kicked the ropes, buying him some time. Omega then crushed Sydal with another V-Trigger, but Sydal landed a victory roll for a super close near fall. Omega had had enough, hitting another V-Trigger and the One-Winged Angel for the win.

John Silver and the Dark Order were interviewed about whether Silver is ready for his title match against Darby Allin. They told Marvez to screw off and mocked the Coffin Drop. Hangman Page told Silver they'd be proud of him win or lose and wished him luck.
