Eli Drake, Chris Adonis, Johnny Impact and Eddie Edwards In-Ring Segment:

He’s still pissed off that it took him this long, after all the politics and BS he’s had to deal with. The old saying is that, the hunger goes away when you get to the top of the mountain. Drake was chilling in the poolside area, then this cougar in a leopard print bikini came up to him and offered to give him her jugs. Now that Drake is the Global Champion, nobody can stop him, not even Jim Cornette.
