CHICAGO — AEW has its inaugural All-Atlantic Champion after a fatal four-way match at AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door Sunday night.
Miro dominated most of the match, but PAC came out with the victory and became the first AEW All-Atlantic Champion.
PAC and Malakai Black went after each other early on. NJPW’s Clark Connors tried to lay low until Miro dragged him into the fight. Black got a leglock on Connors. Miro pulled him out of his ring by his hair.
PAC came off the top with a springboard on Miro, who caught him with a fallaway slam. Miro hit an uranage on Connors for a near fall. Black and Miro worked over PAC with stomps, occasionally getting in each other’s way. Miro dumped Black to the floor. He then caught Pac with a spinebuster for a near fall.
Miro set up the machka kick, but PAC caught him with a superkick. He would then take out Black with a plancha. PAC hit the shotgun dropkick on Miro, then German suplexed Black right on his head. Black hit PAC with a knee strike. Connors hit a suplex on Black, but couldn’t do the same to Miro.
Black dropped to the floor and pulled out a table. “Big pop for the table!” quipped Taz. Black leaned the table up against the ring barricade. After Miro and Black teased putting the other through the table, Connors speared Miro through the table.
Back in the ring, Connors hit Black with a spinning power slam, then caught PAC with a spear. Connors hit the “trophy kill” on PAC for a near fall. (The “trophy kill” is an inverted blue thunder bomb.) The crowd started getting behind Connors with a “Let’s Go Clark!” chant.
Connors ran into a superkick from PAC. PAC went for the Black Arrow but Malakai Black caught him. This set up the superplex stacker spot with Miro on the bottom, power bombing everyone.
Miro tossed out Black and Connors, hit the machka kick on PAC, then locked in the Game Over. Black hit Miro with the black mist. Black tried to lock Connors in a hold, but PAC came off the top with Black Arrow, then locked Connors in the Brutalizer to get the tap out.
Winner: PAC via submission (15:05)
