Video Package: There is history between Jay White and Jay Lethal as we head into their match later tonight!

Back at ringside, Renee Paquette welcomes Roderick Strong and The Kingdom to the stage. Roderick says that Joe will come to regret helping Max before talking about suffering consequences of his own actions…until now.

With that, he rises from the wheelchair, admitting that it’s held him back but no longer as he throws it off the stage, the culmination of his promise to “not suffer consequences” to a great reaction from the crowd and The Kingdom.

-Commercial Break-

We head backstage where Renee stands outside MJF’s locker room to get a word from the World Champion, only to be interrupted by Hangman Page who addresses Swerve beating him at Full Gear…but says he took something from Strickland that night, as well.

Page says this is not over, and because of what Swerve did, he will make sure Strickland never gets what he’s looking for.

MJF appears, starting to run Page down but Hangman storms off. The champ pokes the bear some more, saying he talks for 30 minutes to wake the crowd up…and this leads to a war of words between the two men. This leads to MJF accusing Page of being the masked devil…but Page refutes this, saying Max might be doing this all along.

MJF threatens to go after Page until Joe intervenes, saying Max is his responsibility and reminding MJF they have other business to deal with tonight.
