OC rips up the paper and throws it in the floor.

Callis pulls out another copy of the agreement and tries to get OC to sign it again and tell him to think about it before leaving.
The Inner Circle comes out with his left elbow in a gigantic brace. Ortiz says at this point talk is cheap and he wants to fight. Sammy Guevara agrees and says as long as they are in the same company this feud will never end. Guevara says every single week this won’t end until they get their rematch. Guevara says The Pinnacle are nothing more than a bunch of clowns and last week they looked like a “bunch of dumbass fishes flopping around in their cheap suits.”
Jake Hager says that they have said from the beginning they are the baddest and if they don’t accept the challenge then that would make them just like The Pinnacle. He says that while The Pinnacle tries hard to be like them they are nothing like them and the last thing they want is to be a bunch of school yard bitches like The Pinnacle.
Jericho says they did the Bubbly bath last week to get the Pinnacle’s attention and they got it. Jericho says he wonders if Blood and Guts was worth it with the toll on their body and he wonders if it is worth it to risk having to break up. Jericho says none of them will forget Blood and Guts because they will never be the same again, especially him. Jericho says that MJF hurt him – not just physically but also mentally – and he can’t get the image of MJF throwing him off the top of the cage out of his head.
Jericho says when he thinks of the revenge he will get on MJF he realizes it was definitely worth it. Jericho says the answer for Stadium Stampede is yes. Jericho says you will have to kill them to beat them. Jericho says you have to kill them to beat them and hell is coming for The Pinnacle and they will piss on their graves.
