In-Ring: MJF, Ricky Starks
Out comes the AEW World Heavyweight Champion MJF. He walks down to the ring and goes face to face with Starks. MJF tells Bryan Danielson that he didn’t want to show up tonight and the reason why is because he is terrified of him. After what he did to William Regal, he would be scared too. Because he is a bad man and that is why in a week from now, he will be a four time, four time, four time, four time beautiful Dynamite Diamond Ring champion. And he will still be the holder of the grandest prize of them all, the Triple B.
He tells Starks that the people seem to like him. They talk about Starks like he is underutilized. MJF says he is talented but the truth is that in comparison to him, Starks is the absolute drizzling shits. Or a roody poo, candy ass. Considering the fact that he stole literally everything else from that guy. Because he is nothing more than a dollar store Dwayne.
MFJ says he will start calling him the Pebble. And next week at Dynamite, he will put him in his car and throw him in the water so he can go back to NWA to wrestle on YouTube where he belongs. MJF says he is a generational talent and his reign of terror has just begun.
Starks bumps into MJF and grabs a microphone. Starks calls MJF Maxipad. He should have expected a fifth rate Roddy Piper to come out and steal the spotlight. He says every week, MJF comes out, spray tanned, with pants that are not ironed and a shitty scarf and MJF thinks he is better than him. Everything about MJF screams cheap. The cheap shoes, suits and heat. The difference between them is that when the fans got behind him, he gave them a reason to stay behind. But MJF let the fans and Regal down. When it comes to Ricky, he delivers on time, every day, every week, every month. And MJF can take his little ass to Greece for three months because he didn’t get paid enough.
But the truth remains that Starks has been here busting his ass. MJF avoids responsibility, pressure. MJF avoids it because everyone hates Max, he doesn’t have to go to signings, he has nothing to lose. But Starks lives with dignity, respect. MJF doesn’t know that. When Starks lived in his car, he knew responsibility. When it comes to that women at ringside, he has responsibilities to her. But MJF thinks he can get what he wants and next week is a big deal because he is putting up and shutting out MJF life for once in his narcissistic life. He says MJF doesn’t deserve the title. YouTube, he did it and next week he will stomp into him and take that title. He is going to do MJF a favor that he never had done in his life, he is going to take the responsibility off his plate as he calls MJF a little boy. MJF kicks Starks and low blows him. MJF has the Dynamite Diamond Ring but Starks hits him with the spear.
Backstage: Jon Moxley
John Moxley is backstage and he says last week, things did not get out of hand. Moxley says he is starting to like Hangman Page. He fell off his horse, dusted himself off and got back onto the saddle. Hangman spoke with his fists and there is too much talking. This is AEW. This is combat, this is a sport of kings. He tells the Jericho Appreciation Society, he is over them. He will be out there tonight to make sure there is no sports entertainment shenanigans. He tells Page if he wants another piece, he knows where to find him.

In-Ring: Blackpool Combat Club
Tony is in the ring with all three men and he says he wants to show an interview he did with Regal a few weeks back. In the interview, Regal tells him that people will only see this if something bad happens to him. And when you are someone like him, you expect something to happen. MJF seemed to be mad about emails, he gave MJF what he wanted. The old saying, be careful what you wish for because now everyone will be chasing MJF.
Regal realized a few months ago that the three main members of the Blackpool Combat Club do not need him but he knew they would not let him go. But he needed to show them why they can teach Wheeler to be the best wrestler in the world and they don’t need him. He says he knows Moxley is a calculated man and he will understand this. The reason he did what he did and to lead by example was to teach them the final thing he could ever teach them. Always stay one step ahead and make sure to keep eyes behind your head. He is Blackpool Combat Club until he dies.
We cut back to the ring and Tony says he recorded that two weeks ago before what happened last week. Moxley says all he knows is one thing for sure. The three men in this ring live and breath for the sport of professional wrestling. You can call them whatever you want but December 10, Ring of Honor , this war with the Jericho Appreciation Society is over. These men make a statement, this Friday at Rampage, he will make a statement. He challenges any wrestler in the world to get in the ring and see where you stand in the food chain. Moxley says pro wrestling is about to make a serious statement.
