After the match, a brawl broke out involving Cody Rhodes, Sammy Guevara, Dustin Rhodes, and Swagger, who attacked the babyfaces to stand tall with the heels to close the show. 

Since AEW (All Elite Wrestling) was launched earlier this year, various talents have been speculated as possibilities of heading to the new promotion. That includes Swagger.

Swagger has stated in the past that he has spoken with Cody Rhodes briefly about potentially joining AEW.

Swagger returns to the Bellator cage when he takes on Anthony Garrett (4-2) at Bellator 231 on October 25 at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, CT.
