- Other debut is Thunder Rosa who comes out after Shida beats Mel in a short match, challenging Shida to a title match at All Out, Shida accepts.
- Britt Baker segment has her nearly get beat up by Swole but because Britt is in a wheelchair Swole says she will wait for All Out. As Swole is walking away Britt gets out of her wheelchair and beats the hell out of Swole, Nicole Savoy comes out to help, probably setting up a Britt v Savoy match for a Dynamite before All Out.
- The Elite beat Dark Order in around 10 minutes, supposedly a very fun match. Omega Pins Silver.
