MJF is backstage. He says he’s razor sharp and tough as nails. Everybody seems to get it twisted because of his attire and beautiful jewelry. It’s “The Demo God” vs. “The Ratings Ruler.” He says this is the biggest match of his life and that includes his AEW Title match because Moxley couldn’t have cheated against him if he wasn’t in The Inner Circle. Alex tries asking Wardlow how he feels about potentially joining, but MJF answers for him dismissively.

Post-match, who comes out but Thunder Rosa! She and Serena stare one another down as Rosa talk trash to the champion. She points to the belt and continues to jaw jack with the current champion.
Eddie Kingston is with his “Fam.” Alex asks them if Kingston has what it takes to not say “I Quit.” Bunny hates that question. He asks the same to The Lucha Brothers. Penta notes that Eddie is his best friend. He then asks Eddie if the AEW Title is more important to him or making Mox say “I quit.” Nothing is more important than that title. That’s what matters. He doesn’t care if Lance Archer is standing in the wings. He doesn’t care about him. He doesn’t care about PAC. “I do not care.”
