Danielson says he’ll do the same to Moxley at Revolution.
Jon Moxley walks out and says that he can see that Bryan Danielson is better and more violent than ever. He says that Moxley is at a crossroad in his career with one path being him getting his head kicked in on Sunday and never be heard of again but he chooses the other path, which sees him running right through Danielson. He says he will finally beat Danielson and the Story of Jon Moxley is just beginning. He says the next chapter will be written in blood.

He says that nothing he can say can be more impactful than something he can do and he needs MJF to come out for him to do that. MJF walks out and says that he used to be just like MJF, full of hate and that he has done awful things. He says he once poured alcohol down an alcoholic’s throat and mocked a wrestler’s addition until he lost his job because of it and all that heat won’t just keep him warm, it will burn him up.
Punk says respect isn’t given, it’s earned. Punk says this is bigger than that and says there is an 11-year old watching right now that looks up to MJF just like MJF looked up to Punk.
