Throughout the match, MJF displayed signs of discomfort in his knee, which became a target for Tanahashi’s strategic attacks. However, when Tanahashi attempted his signature High Fly Flow, MJF managed to raise his knees just in time to avoid a potential defeat.
As the match reached its climax, MJF resorted to a controversial move. He forcefully shoved Tanahashi into referee Bryce Remsburg, momentarily incapacitating the official. Seizing the opportunity, MJF unleashed a devastating blow using his Dynamite Diamond Ring, ultimately securing the win.
There was a moment of suspense when Tanahashi rolled up MJF while Remsburg was busy disposing of the AEW World Title that MJF had brought into the ring. However, MJF resiliently kicked out as soon as Remsburg turned his attention back to the count, leading directly into the match’s climactic finish.
