In a pre-taped promo, Eddie Kingston cuts a promo on how Chris Jericho brought him back to his darkest place, as he doesn’t know where he is mentally. He’s scared about what he’s going to do; through tears, he says he hurts people, and the JAS is bringing his demon back. He breaks a bottle of alcohol and says he can’t stand Jericho because he’s done this to him. Kingston dares him to find out why no company ever wanted him and says he’ll find out on Sunday. He also says this about Tony Khan, too, as he could have stopped this. But he closes it by saying he’ll see the JAS on Sunday.
