Omega left Hangman in the ring and made his way backstage. Kenny told Young Bucks that it was time for clean break and told them to get in the car with him. Young Bucks declined and Omega drove away.
Opinion: I thought that this match was excellent and the right team won. The Elite completely falling apart/ Omega teasing the Cleaner gimmick has been a great storyline and I’m looking forward to see where it goes in the upcoming episodes of Dynamite. There was a crowd during the show tonight but I think they lost their energy after the Matt Hardy incident. It was also very hot in Jacksonville so that I’m sure that played into it as well. This match deserved a lot more noise and reactions from the audience.

Moxley hit the Paradigm Shift while the referee was dealing with Wardlow for the pinfall victory. Lance Archer was shown watching on from the crowd. Archer earned a shot at the AEW Championship by winning the Casino Battle Royal earlier on the show.
Opinion: I would have preferred to see MJF get a massive win and become the new AEW Champion but that time will come. MJF have reason to be complain about the Paradigm Shift being used so I’m sure this feud will continue. Moxley versus Archer should be solid as well.
I enjoyed this match but this show was way too long. I’ve complained about WWE shows lasting an eternity and AEW is doing the same thing. It isn’t riveting to watch a Sleeper Hold four hours into a show. Overall, I thought All Out was a disappointment despite the Tag Team Championship and Women’s Championship matches being great. The Matt Hardy situation took a lot of the energy out of the show and there hardly any crowd noise the rest of the night.
