Moxley sits down in a chair in the ring and says that from the moment he woke the morning after losing the AEW Title he knew he would do whatever it took for as long as it took to get the title back. He says he would crawl through barbed wire and landmines to do it and it looks like that is exactly what he’ll have to do. Moxley asks what images come to your mind when you hear the words “Exploding Barbed Wire Death Match” and he talks about old Japanese wrestling magazines and asks how those images of those matches made you feel.
He asks if your hands shake and feel nauseas or do they make you sick with excitement. Moxley says he is addicted to wrestling and addicted to the feeling he gets when he bleeds and sweats in the ring saying he can’t get enough of it. Moxley says the thought of the idea of this match pulls him in and makes him excited even if it’s just a trap from Omega. He says Omega is just one in a long line of people that have treid to take him out. He says that win, lose or draw everyone watching Revolution will see that he gave every single thing he had and this match could end his career. He says that is a hell of a way to go out.
