Dasha interviews MJF and Wardlow backstage and MJF says how proud he is of Wardlow, but he also says that if Wardlow becomes the champion he will become the World Champion because Wardlow is under contract to him and Wardlow’s property becomes MJF’s property. Sammy Guevara walks up and throws the Inner Circle jacket MJF gave up and says he is going to make sure MJF never joins the group. MJF taunts Sammy and says he looks like a guy that sells Adderall to middle schoolers.

Jon Moxley says that he has defended his title with everything he’s had this year to try and help cultivate the championship to make it the most prestigious title in the business. Moxley says he isn’t defending the World Title at Full Gear, he’s going to be weaponizing it. He says there is no room for “this” Eddie Kinston in AEW. He says AEW is for the best athletes in the world that do the work and put their asses on the line every week. Moxley says he will have to say the words “I quit” and it will be a painful realization when he does to him what he has done to everyone else in AEW. He says he crushes windpipes, crushes necks and crushes egos.
Eddie Kingston comes out and says he is sick and tired of talking, he wants to fight. He screams at the camera man to get out of “his world” and leave the ring. He says that Jon Moxley isn’t here because he is a coward, so instead he will take on the man that tried to steal his thunder in the Casino Battle Royal. Kingston reminds us that he was never eliminated from that tournament.

Excalibur sits down with FTR and The Young Bucks for an interview. FTR are in a separate location, along with Tully Blanchard. Matt Jackson says his ankle is fine and that an injury isn’t going to keep him out of the match with FTR. Excalibur asks FTR why they would put a match that has been brewing for years in jeopardy. Cash says he doesn’t care about any dream matches, all they care about is being tag champions.
The Bucks mock Excalibur when he says that he has known them for years and Matt says that’s the only reason he has a job. Matt says that they aren’t proud of the way they’ve acted lately, he doesn’t regret it. He says that they have been suffering for months and they’ve been missing an edge and the minute “these pricks” started messing with their livelihood and started screwing with their friends something clicked with them. He says the old Young Bucks are back.
FTR get pissed when Excalibur starts to ask the Bucks another question and walks off the set. Nick Jackson says they have more to lose than just a title and they offer the stipulation for the match that if they don’t win then they can never challenge for those belts again. Matt says that they have succeeded because they have always bet on themselves.
Dasha and Tony Schiavone are hosting a “town hall” between the Inner Circle and MJF over whether MJF should join the group. Luchasaurus asks the first question and asks MJF how he can contribute the earning potential for Inner Circle. MJF shows a chart that would show the earnings pre MJF and post MJF that would go way up.
Dr. Britt Baker asks the next question, she says MJF has a terrible track record with friendships and asks Jericho how that makes him feel. Jericho says he isn’t a “dipshit” like Cody Rhodes and if he tried to turn on him they would knock MJF’s teeth down his throat. MJF says he just wants to help them make more money, he doesn’t want to turn on them.
Peter Avalon gets the next question and asks to join the group but they laugh at him. Eric Bischoff is next and quotes JFK while asking MJF what he can do for the Inner Circle. MJF responds by saying, “friendship.” Bischoff asks MJF what he thinks Inner Circle can do for him and MJF says he has one dent in his armor and that is that he may not be the best team player but he thinks once he joins the group he can learn to be. Bischoff says he worked with Jericho for many years and calls him a “prima dona” which sets Jericho off until Tony screams at him to shutup. Bischoff says that MJF possesses some of Jericho’s “prima dona” characteristics and asks what the guarantee is that they just don’t end up killing each other.
Jericho asks MJF why they should believe he wouldn’t stab them in the back which pisses MJF off. MJF says that he gave Jericho the best segment of his entire career and he asks Jericho what he hasn’t done in the business. Jericho says he has never beaten him and he’s going to give him a chance to do it at Full Gear. If MJF wins then he can join the group. MJF says he will do whatever it takes to win and he will do anything to win.
Ortiz finally gets pissed off and tells MJF to shut the hell up and says that all he does is run his mouth. Ortiz says MJF has no shot to get into the group and he challenges MJF to a tag team match pitting he and Sammy against MJF and Wardlow next week. He says that MJF won’t make it to Full Gear.
Taz says that Team Taz is about victories, championships and money and he thinks Will Hobbs is money. Taz says that he is big, fast and mean as hell and that fits into Team Taz. Taz says that the clock is ticking and he needs to make a decision soon. Cage asks if he is in or out.
