T-Hawk was the next man eliminated, taken out by Private Party. Silver and Reynolds chose this moment to storm the ring. The Dark Order spokesman appeared at ringside and addressed SCU, creating a distraction leading to Reynolds and Silver eliminating Kazarian and Scorpio Sky.

Kris Statlander vs Shanna

Shanna played her part but the match ended up being mostly dominated by Statlander. The Galaxy's favorite Alien looked in top form and could be a contender for the AEW Women's Championship in the future.

At one point in the match, both ladies went after each other's nose. The finish saw Shanna hit a double stomp only for Statlander to reply with The Big Bang Theory to leave with the win.
