The main event of the show saw Kenny Omega defeat Jon Moxley to become the new AEW World Champion. During the match, Omega would turn heel after Don Callis got up from the commentary booth and distracted Jon Moxley. When Moxley turned around, Omega would end up hiting him in the head with a microphone and getting the pinfall victory to become the new champion.[1]

The event also saw the AEW debut of Sting. Sting came out after Darby Allin's match and saved him from a beatdown by Team Taz. Sting was announced to have signed a multi-year contract with All Elite Wrestling afterwards.[2]
