Jon Moxley defended the AEW World Championship in the main event

AEW Fight For The Fallen did not disappoint. We had two big title matches on the card with AEW World Champion Jon Moxley taking on Brian Cage while Cody defended the TNT Championship against Sonny Kiss.

We also had tag-team action with Jurassic Express facing The Elite and FTR in action against the Lucha Bros. Nyla Rose also had a big announcement and she introduced a legendary WWE GM as her new manager in AEW.

Chris Jericho was also on Fight For The Fallen. He cut a promo calling out Orange Cassidy and this did not end well for Le Champion. Read on for full results from AEW Fight For The Fallen.

AEW: Cody (C) vs Sonny Kiss (for the TNT Championship)

Cody started off the match on top, taking out Sonny Kiss early with a Disaster Kick on. Uncharacteristically, Cody started to showboat after this which didn't please Arn Anderson.

Sonny hit back with an elbow strike followed by a hammer kick. On the offense now, Kiss followed it up with an enzuigiri. Cody hit back by locking in a Full Nelson but didn't have the power to hold it in and Sonny broke free.

Sonny followed this with a beautiful Spanish Fly followed by a head scissors which sent Cody into the corner. We saw Sonny Kiss hit some big moves around this point including an Exploder Suplex. Kiss then hit Cody with a Cross Rhodes and he kicked out of his own finisher. Kiss then hit a 450 Splash forcing Cody to dig deep and kick out again.

Cody replied with a nasty Alabama Slam on the entrance ramp. This sort of spelt the end for Sonny Kiss and Cody hit the Cross-Rhodes soon after to pin Kiss and win the match.

AEW: Lucha Bros vs FTR

Dax Harwood and Pentagon started things off and this AEW match was physical from the very beginning. Harwood and Pentagon traded strikes before tagging in Fenix. A double team move by Lucha Bros was followed by Cash Wheeler tagging in. Harwood and Wheeler traded tags briefly and worked on Fenix in their corner.

Fenix hit back with a running dropkick to Harwood sending him out to the AEW ringside. We saw Wheeler and Pentagon trading chops as we headed into commercial.

We came back from commercial to see Harwood dishing out suplexes to both Fenix and Pentagon. Harwood then sent Fenix into the turnbuckle. He followed it up with another suplex for a 2-count.

Pentagon tagged in soon after this and hit a springboard legdrop on AEW. More double team moves from both teams as they showed us why they are two of the best in the world.

Harwood and Fenix were in the ring as the legal men, Fenix caught Dax Harwood with a spinning kick. Harwood replied by taking Fenix's mask off and rolling him up for the win on AEW.

Le Champion's message for Orange Cassidy on AEW

Chris Jericho was out next on AEW with the Inner Circle. Jericho said he was the greatest of all time and the king of the demos. He called himself the demo god before adding how successful his match with Orange Cassidy was. Jericho then teased a rematch with Orange Cassidy before nixing the idea. He then said that Orange Cassidy better have enjoyed his brief run as a main eventer because it was over now.

Orange Cassidy's music hit as The Inner Circle gloated inside the ring. Cassidy came out through the eating area to stare at Jericho from across the arena. Jericho told him that there would never be a rematch so he could get out of the arena.

Cassidy then gave The Inner Circle the thumbs down from where he was standing outside the AEW ring. We then saw a massive amount of orange liquid come down from the ceiling and cover The Inner Circle in the AEW ring. After Jericho finally struggled and got back to his feet, he asked for a towel. Unfortunately for him, the towel he got had Orange Cassidy's face on it.

AEW: Jurrasic Express vs The Elite

Nick Jackson and 'Jungle Boy' Jack Perry started off the AEW match for their respective teams. Jackson went to plant Perry face-first into the mat but he reversed it. Marko Stunt and Kenny Omega tagged in as the legal men.

Stunt clapped Omega across the face and this didn't really endear him to the former NJPW star. Stunt followed it up with a dropkick forcing Omega to regroup.

Luchasaurus and Matt Jackson tagged in as the legal men. We saw Marko Stunt flossing at ringside and Nick Jackson nearly kicked his head off. Omega followed it up with a massive dive, taking everyone out.

We saw Omega laying into Jungle Boy during the commercial break. When we came back from commercial, Jungle Boy hit a massive hurracanrana sending Nick Jackson crashing off the apron followed by a clothesline to Omega at ringside.

Luchasaurus tagged in and took on all three members of The Elite. Omega started dishing out Snapdragon Suplexes. The Young Bucks then hit Luchasaurus with a double superkick. The Bucks then helped Omega hit Luchasaurus with a Piledriver but they only got a nearfall out of it. Jungle Boy and Luchasaurus then launched Marko Stunt at Mat Jackson. Stunt hit Jackson with an incredible Canadian Destroyer.

Omega replied with a V-Trigger to both Luchasaurus and Jungle Boy. Marko Stunt tried to roll up Omega but was unsuccessful. He ended up taking a One Winged Angel for his troubles. Omega then pinned Stunt for the win.

Nyla Rose introduces her new manager

Nyla Rose was out on AEW next. She introduced WWE legend, Vickie Guerrero, as her new manager. Vickie warned the AEW women's locker room that Nyla Rose was coming for them and to take every opportunity that they'd dreamt of.


AEW: Jon Moxley (C) vs Brian Cage (for the AEW World Championship)

Mox looked slightly sluggish in the first few moments of the match, allowing Cage to take control early. The champ was soon up to speed though, as he worked on Brian Cage's previously injured left arm. Moxley went for a tope suicida but Cage caught Moxley at ringside. Moxley tried to lock in a standing armbar but Cage flung him into the barricade.

Moxley and Cage fought beyond the barricades. Mox took Cage's arm and put it in between the barricade bars before giving it a kick.

As we hit the final commercial break, Mox and Cage made their way back into the ring. The action soon spilled out to ringside once again as Brian Cage suplexed Moxley into a steel chair that had been set up. Cage then rolled Moxley back into the ring. Mox rolled Cage up for a 2-count and followed it up with a series of elbow strikes.

Cage tried to hit a moonsault but ate the mat. Moxley followed it with a series of running knee strikes but they seemingly had no effect as Cage took Moxley down with a clothesline. Moxley hit back with a clothesline of his own.

Moxley went back to working on Cage's arm and locked in an armbar. Moxley maneuvered it to put even more pressure on the shoulder, forcing Tazz to throw in the towel for Cage.

Grade: A-

Cage hit Moxley with the FTW title belt after the match. As Cage went to inflict further punishment, the lights went out. When they came back on, we saw Darby Allin on the top turnbuckle. Allin hit Cage with his skateboard forcing him to leave the ring.

Overall, AEW Fight For The Fallen was yet another excellent showing from everyone concerned. While certain matches could have been better, it definitely helped the storylines to progress, and was compounded with excellent title matches to start and end the show.
