As CM Punk is making his entrance, to a gigantic ovation, MJF’s music interrupts his entrance and he comes out to an “asshole” chant. MJF calls Punk “Punky Brewster” and says it doesn’t feel good to be interrupted does it as the fans chant “shut the f*ck up” at him and MJF simply says, “no.” MJF says that Punk hurt his feelings last week by turning down his handshake. He says it was almost as bad as the time Punk quit, took his ball and went home like a little bitch. MJF says that Punk’s “pipe bomb” promo was Punk’s best moment but every MJF moment is the best MJF moment. He says unlike Punk, he isn’t a one trick pony.
MJF says he respects Punk and everything he’s done and even that he’s straight edge but says he never thought someone that was straight edge would look so much like a meth addict. MJF says if he had Punk’s face he would need to down 8 shots of liquor just to look in the mirror. MJF says that he noticed that everytime some one would ask him who he wanted to face he would never mention him and that’s because he “didn’t want none” from him. MJF says he’s going to verbally finish him quicker than his UFC career. He says that he doesn’t drop pipe bombs, he drops nukes.
Punk says he is disappointed in MJF and then says he’s glad that Maxwell introduced himself to him last week because he never knew his name was Maxwell. He says that he thought his name was “My Jealous Fan.” Punk says he never mentioned MJF by design because he never wanted to feed his ego. He says that he’s in MJF’s head and that probably has to do with the fact that there is a poster of Punk on Maxwell’s wall. Punk says he heard so much about the great MJF yet last week he did what no one else has been able to do, he shut up MJF without saying a word. He says MJF had a whole week to think of good zingers and all he could come out with was the lowest hanging fruit.
Punk says MJF thinks he’s revolutionary but in reality he’s just a less famous Miz. MJF says that Punk is nothing more than a drug of nostalgia. He says he was a fan of Punk because he thought he was the best, but ever since he returned Punk’s struggled to beat anyone and struggled to have anything of interest to say. He says Punk’s breath smells like shit because of all the ass he’s been kissing.
MJF mocks all the “happy” promos Punk has been doing and says that he’s gone soft. He says by the look of his eyes, the only person that needs to go to sleep is Punk. He says that he’s become PG Punk and asks where the old Punk has gone and says he might as well be out here preaching “hustle, loyalty and respect.” MJF taunts Punk about everything he’s done since leaving wrestling and says that the truth is that Punk was terrified and was scared he couldn’t hang (in wrestling) anymore.
MJF tells Punk he should be scared because in the other company everyone loved him because they all thought he was being held down. Now, he has every opportunity to prove them right but he can’t do that. MJF says that Punk doesn’t like him because he represents everything about wrestling that Punk hates. He says he was made for this business, while Punk was a scrawny misfit that had to work his tail off. He says what eats Punk up is that after everything, all his work, his entire career he’s never been more than second best. He says whether it was the “you can’t see me guy” or the “King of Kings” he was just never up to snuff. He says that now that he is in MJF’s company things will be no different. “You may claim to be the best in the world but I’m better than you and you know it,” MJF says.
Punk says he may have been scared before he came back but he isn’t anymore and he definitely wasn’t scared of MJF. Punk says that he was selling out MSG while MJF was hanging out with Rosie O’Donnell. Punk mocks MJF for making the New York Times because of his show tunes dance last year. He says he’ll wind up in NYT again but this time it will be in the Obituaries. Punk says that it just kills MJF that he came to AEW and wanted to face the heart and soul of the company and that was Darby Allin, not MJF. Punk says that MJF talks about being one of the four pillars of AEW but he doesn’t even realize he’s been replaced by Britt Baker. Punk says that MJF talks too much and they’ve wasted enough time, he says that Chicago is called the “Second City” because once it was burned to the ground it was just built right back on top of the smoldering embers. He says he’ll wear that “No. 2” like a badge of honor. He says that the only way MJF will ever become No. 1 is if he is around long enough for Tony Khan to have a daughter for him to marry. Punk says last time he was in Chicago he gave the fans ice cream bars and the only thing he can think of that is better than that is punching MJF in his needle dick. MJF retreats, however.

Danielson says that of course Page would do that after he already wrestled. Danielson says that isn’t Cowboy shit, it’s coward shit.
Page says that if he doesn’t want to do the match tonight, that’s fine but he isn’t leaving Chicago without a fight.
