He grabs a mic to remind us he’s the new champ. He’s about to give us another reminder when we hear a familiar “BRO”. Matt Riddle just came out to say hi, and congratulate Dream on his recent victory. But real talk… Riddle wants to get a closer look at the North American championship. Velveteen shows him, and Matt says now he wonders what it will like around his waist one day, bro. Dream says Riddle must be on cloud 9 today, because he’s not his bro. And the spotlight (snaps fingers and the lights go out everywhere but on him) is his! Dream over.

UE out first, just the two of them. #DIY get individual entrances, but after Ciampa comes out he signals to the back and we get the old theme! This just makes me sad in light of today’s news, but oh well. Crowd is chanting for Gargano Ciampa. Johnny starts with Fish, and they work fast amid dueling chants.

Gargano flies back with his slingshot spear, but Kyle catches him in a guillotine! Knee from Tommaso breaks that up and gets two. Fists fly between O’Reilly and Johnny, and KOR injects a little overselling levity by rebounding off progressively lower ropes back into strikes, first a superkick then a lariat. Bobby and the champ gas calculator are in the corner, and after a superplex is countered, Fish does the super-deal with a Falcon Arrow. Kyle follows by dropping a knee, and Ciampa still kicks out!
