The second match on the pre-show Buy-In was Sammy Guevara going up against England’s Kip Sabian. The commentary team noted that this match will go down as the first single’s match to take place on an official AEW event.
This match was an athletic back-and-forth with some incredible moves by each guy. One of the bigger spots included Guevara draping Sabian over the guardrail and delivering a shooting star press on top of him. They also toppled over each other in a suplex position from the ring to the floor.
Sabian hit “Deathly Hollows” for the win.
The commentary team played up that Kip Sabian would be the fan favorite for everyone staying up and watching the show on ITV in the UK and Australia. They also played up that Sabian will go down in history as the winner of the first single’s match in AEW history.
Winner: Kip Sabian
