Jon Moxley & Chris Jericho In-Ring Segment 

Jon Moxley: Hey, you see this belt right here? This is the AEW World Championship. It’s a beautiful thing. It’s beautiful because what it represents. These three letters, AEW, represent professional wrestling. The sport that I love. The sport that I dedicated my life to. This belt never belonged to Chris Jericho. Hell, this belt don’t belong to me. This belt belongs to you. Each and everyone of you in this building tonight and not just that. Every AEW fan watching all around the world, that helped will this company into existence. Every AEW fan out there that said, we wanted something different, we wanted something better. We brought pro wrestling back. So, I’ll defend this belt with my life. I will crawl through any hell to defend this belt. I will climb any mountain to defend this belt.

And trust me, there’s not a man in AEW, there’s not a man in this entire industry, that has what it takes to pry this belt out of my cold dead hands. Hey, i’m not hiding from anybody. If you want to try, step up. You have a few options. You either get knocked out, you get choked out, you get dropped on your head, it’s all the same to me. Look, I’m no dummy, I know it’s not over between me and The Inner Circle. They’ve been trying to take me out for two months. They tried to take my eye. They tried to end my career. I know watching me in the ring right now, is like acid burning in Chris Jericho’s mouth. I know I got an army coming after me. So, I got a message for the whole inner circle. I dare you.

Chris Jericho: Moxley, let me just start off by saying that, I don’t need the damn belt to be le champion. What a bunch of idiots, you can’t even chant in unison, so why don’t you shut your ass and let le champion say what I have to say. What a proclamation Jon Moxley, daring The Inner Circle to come down and face you. It’s typical Mox, it’s your MO. Reckless abandon. A maverick. A rebel. More guts than brains. The Lunatic Fringe. Well guess what? All of it paid off because, The Moxley Era has begun tonight. You guys like The Moxley Era? I don’t, I think it sucks ass. And I’ll tell you the reason why, along with your classy friends here in Dumpy Broomfield. Your championship win was based on a lie, Moxley. You’re a cheater. You’re a lair. I spent the better part of three months training to face a man with one eye. And the fact that you could see out of both, is not an action that’s worthy of a champion.

Shut up. That makes you a snake oil salesman. That you makes you a cheater, like I said. As a result, all of you are liars too, all of you. And since you won the title so unfairly, you caused a big problem. Because you turned The Inner Circle, from a group of good natured and very good looking guys, into a damn hit squad. So it’s official, The Inner Circle is officially putting the entire AEW Roster on notice. And I don’t care if you are The Librarian, I don’t care if you are Michael Nakazawa and I don’t care if you are Jon Moxley, the new AEW Champion. Cause we are going to tear everybody apart. We are going to hurt some people.

And Mox, we’re gonna start with you. After the huge main event tonight, Moxley & Darby Allin vs. Chris Jericho & The Spanish God, I promise, I guarantee that you will not walk out of this ring on your two feet. You will not leave this city, this pigsty, this dump state on your volition. And I’m so sure of what I say that, if you walk out of here on your own tonight, I will take a leave of absence from AEW for 30 days. As a matter of fact, I will take a leave absence from AEW for 60 days, if you walk out on your own tonight. As a matter of fact, Mox, don’t forget that I always got a plan and you’re not as smart as you think you are.

Jon Moxley: Not as smart as I think I am? Well, nobody ever said I was genius. Hell, I didn’t graduate high school. But Chris, i’m so sick of listening you talk. Tonight, I’m gonna do exactly what I did, Saturday at Revolution on PPV in Chicago. Except, i’m gonna do it right here tonight in Broomfield, Colorado. And this time, I’m gonna send your ass packing for 60 days and make you look like a stupid son of a bitch.

Cody Rhodes & Jake The Snake Roberts Segment 

Cody Rhodes: I don’t know if I want to broach the subject of, what it feels like personally to lose to MJF. But I can tell you what it means, professionally. As a wrestler, you work your whole career to get on a PPV card, to get on the actual card. And when you do, it’s guaranteed money. And when you win your match, it’s a PPV bonus, or as Jim Ross has multiple times referred to so and eloquently said, the winner’s share of the purse. So what was once professional, became personal and is now professional again. I don’t know if I can take it, the lashes, the loss, the ring, the whole thing. The only way I’ll be comfortable with it at all, is if MJF comes out here right now, looks me in the eye and tells me he beat me fair and square.

Jake Roberts: I hate to spoil the party, but damn man, I got tired of listening you cry and bitch. I never cried over one match in my career. And you’re gonna let that little punk son of a bitch, get you down and start crying? He whipped you like a dog. Don’t you understand that you got your ass kicked? He handed it right to you. That’s not why I’m here. I know, hail mighty caesar. I’m not here to praise you. I’m here to slay you. The only reason I’m here is that, i’m a client. The Dark Side will be coming to AEW. And once our roots have taken hold, it will be like the phoenix rising from the ashes, going to the sun. It’s been 20 years for me, Cody. 20 years to get clean, to get right. And by god, I earned it.

And if you think, for one minute, that I’m gonna be a nice boy and play right? Man, you got another thing coming. You see, for years I used to put a snake in a bag, just to make someone think about it. Once you thought about that snake, I had you at the palm of my hand and I wind up spanking your ass. That’s what happens. I’ll be on the outside of the ring when my client faces you. And you can bring out that one trick pony Arn Anderson with you, by god. Hey, Caesar, what a snake wants, the snake takes. You see, I’m not in AEW to take the whole pie, just your share. Now, a wise man once told me, never ever turn your back on somebody you respect or you are afraid of.
