MJF (c.) vs. Konosuke Takeshita!
“I hate to give the devil his due but the man, MJF, he can go in the ring,” said Excalibur.
“MJF is the hood ornament of this company, the world champion of this company, whether you like it or not,” added Taz.
Takeshita clobbered MJF with nearly 10 punches in the corner and then followed up with a jumping knee. MJF pulled the ref in the way and then blindsided Takeshita.
MJF countered a clothesline by yanking Takeshita’s arm and then driving his shoulder into the mat. MJF followed up with a DDT, then chomped down on Takeshita’s fingers. Takeshita fired back with an exploder suplex on MJF, sending MJF flying into the turnbuckles.
Takeshita rocked MJF with two running boots. Takeshita nailed MJF with a brainbuster for a near fall. Takeshita hit a frog splash on MJF for a two-count. Takeshita reversed a piledriver from MJF and planted MJF with a deadlift German suplex. MJF rolled to the outside, taking a breather.
Takeshita whipped MJF headfirst into the steel ring post. Takeshita climbed to the top rope, looking for a moonsault, but MJF lunged at the ropes to disrupt Takeshita’s balance. Takeshita landed a lariat to MJF on the top rope but MJF landed on his feet! Takeshita wasted no time and reared back and then landed a lariat on MJF.
MJF baited Takeshita in and applied the Salt of the Earth arm bar. Takeshita rolled up MJF for a near fall. Takeshita launched himself over the top rope and crashed down onto MJF on the arena floor.
The fans chanted “This is awesome! This is awesome! This is awesome!”
Takeshita blasted MJF with elbow strikes. MJF powerbombed Takeshita across his knee. MJF crumbled to the mat, clutching his knee. Takeshita grabbed MJF and spiked him with the Blue Thunder Bomb and then covered him after a running knee. MJF stopped the pin by touching the bottom rope with his boot.
Takeshita attempted a senton atomico off the ropes but MJF dodged it! MJF cranked an arm bar on Takeshita and Takeshita had no choice but to tap out!
“Especially after the earlier injury to his arm, there’s no way Takeshita could sustain that,” said Taz.
MJF shoved the ref and then clocked Takeshita with the Dynamite Diamond Ring after the match. Bryan Danielson ran to the ring to come to the aid of Takeshita. MJF retreated to the back.

Lexy Nair was trying to get a word with AEW World Champion MJF!
MJF: “Takeshita, everyone was talking about you like you were the next big thing. But you were no challenge for a generational talent like me. No one is. A man does not know what he’s made of until he meets adversity.
“In this life there are winners and there are losers. Tonight, I expose you Dragon! You don’t have the balls to do what it takes. There will be no Iron Man Match on March 5th at Revolution. I am a scumbag, Bryan, and I am damn proud of it.”

“It sounded like Jose the Assistant was on the other side of that locked door,” said Taz.
