Undisputed AEW World Champion Jon Moxley returns

Fresh off his championship victory over CM Punk last week, Jon Moxley entered the Chicago arena to mixed reactions as he proceeded to insult Punk, calling him a man with a fragile ego, a fragile body and a weak mind.

The champion signed an open contract for a title fight at All Out and teased that his opponent may be from outside the organisation.

In a final message, Moxley let his opponent know that he can out-marathon them, out-sprint them, out-fight them, and out-wrestle them.

In what was a violent contest, Hager sent through Danielson through a table with a spinebuster then crashing him into the ring post.

Danielson, a wily veteran, managed to find a second wind as he caught Hager in a submission, as he locked in the LeBell Lock.

Hager found a way out, but not for long, as Danielson caught him with the Running Knee which was enough for the three count.

Winner: Bryan Danielson

The fatal-four-way lived up to the billing, as the match began at full throttle with all four men performing their high-flying duties.
