He says Wheeler will never get that type of reaction, and it isn’t cause he is m-m-m-mid but “I am a God to these people, they’d drink my spit! Any man would let me sleep with their wife! A Generational Talent”. Wheeler says he is the king of low hanging fruit and calls out his engagement! Yuta offers his congratulations, and think she figured out that MJF is a “spineless, worthless piece of human garbage and she’ll walk out like you walked out on all of us!” MJF calls them the Blackpool Cuckold Club, and they’re fighting to lose the title tonight to him, not win it. He says you can still ask your mentors how to become injury prone, or can’t ask Moxley he isn’t all there. “Willy Regal, can you teach me to pop pills?” Wheeler with a massive shot to Max and Max hits him back.
