It’s announced that “Fight for the Fallen” will take place July 15 and that is when Moxley and Cage will face for the title instead of next week. Taz says that everyone probably assumes that they are pissed about this but he says they’re not. He says they don’t care if Moxley politicked and kissed ass to get himself some extra time.
Taz says he had a nice conversation with Tony Khan and in that conversation he learned that Moxley is concerned with the health and well being of everyone in AEW. He says he finds that weird because Moxley has been tested twice and he is negative. Taz says if he would bring his ass next week he would get tested again – because AEW doesn’t run a “sloppy shop” – but he says the only case Moxley has is a case of the chicken shits. He says that Moxley is afraid of Cage and he should be.
Taz says Cage is going to beat Moxley’s brains in and take the title away from him.
