He’s clearly soaking in the reaction and he says The Devil has arrived in Virginia! He’s got one question; Any Devil Worshippers? He praises Renee as she asks him about the biggest match against Mox, he mocks the swag walk and imitates what Moxley said last week. He says with all due respect and when he thinks of Moxley it’s a three letter word: MID. She says you can’t do that and he says with all due respect shut up; he says he’ll wrestle “relatively clean” he is MJF after all.
He says when Regal told him about the knucks, he said it was only cause he liked it. He thinks it’s bull and he promises at Full Gear he won’t use the Diamond Ring because he doesn’t need it. All he’s needed is a grudge and he’s chalk full of them. Now they are a chip and in my backyard I ain’t fighting anyone, I am fighting every single scumbag who said I wasn’t good enough. The chip will come off the shoulder and I will shove it down their throats when I become the new AEW Champion! Because I am a generational talent as Stokely interrupts.
MJF knocks the mic out of his hand and he says Stokely must have gotten comfortable. If Moxley gets through tonight, he needs him 110% no excuses. You don’t lay a hand on him, you don’t look at him, or you’re fired. Stokely smiles and walks off; he finishes his catchphrase because he’s better than you and you know it!
Promo video running down the Kingdom’s arrival in AEW. They run down Taven’s accomplishments in ROH as they are challenging WarJoe.

He says it’s gonna be hard for Johnny cause Penta is tough but Jon will win; everyone else leave me alone.
The commentators run down the Rampage card including Matt Taven vs. Wardlow for the TNT Title. We cut to a Darby video package; he talks about Sting’s absence.
