Brodie Lee Promo 

I would like to take just a moment of your time to address the viewers at home. My eyes, to your eyes, thank you. Now, I wish you would be quiet, because there is adults speaking right now. 10, I would like you take a knee. As I was saying, I said take a proper knee, thank you. Now, I understand to the viewer at home, that there might be a bit of a disconnection. Maybe you feel disjointed with me because, I, as a powerful supreme athlete, in the prime of his career, at the top of his game, cannot relate to you at home, but that is where you are wrong. Do you think I do not sweat? Do you think I don’t put my pants on the same way you do? I assure you, I cannot walk on water.

And I understand that, as you look at me, it may be hard to fathom, but I am no god. I am a man, a man who has come into possession with a very special piece. Now, the difference with The Dark Order of then, and The Dark of now, is that I operate at a higher level. I operate at an elite level. And we are The Lions of AEW, and results speak for themselves. Now, the way I inspire these men, inspires me. And come Saturday, I have to win. Not only to satisfy my hunger, not only to satisfy my desire, but to pay off the loyalty and love of these men. Now, 10, I always knew that you were special. I picked you, and now, this is your moment to shine, you now are a high knight of The Dark Order. Rise, Son, Rise, and go hurt Jon Moxley for me.

Tony Schiavone Interviews Arn Anderson and Jake The Snake Roberts

Tony Schiavone: All right, JR, Excalibur, everyone, coming up on Saturday night, we’ll crown the first ever TNT Champion. The two men who have made their way through the tournament, of course, The American Nightmare, Cody Rhodes. His head coach, Arn Anderson, The Head Coach of The Nightmare Family. On the other side, of course, The Murder Hawk Monster himself, Lance Archer, and his advisor, Jake The Snake Roberts. Mike Tyson will be on hand to crown the first ever TNT Champion. And we are amongst, there’s no question, two of the great legends in this sport, two hall of famers. Gentlemen, it’s your turn to go face to face, and talk about the match coming up on Saturday night.

Jake The Snake Roberts: This is almost surreal, to sit across this table from you. All of the years that we’ve crossed paths, but never in the ring against each other. I always thought about that, I’m so happy that you didn’t bring the rest of your dog and pony show, you’re not used to showing up alone, get used to it. You know, people have dreams, people have nightmares. We all know those are not real, but Lance Archer is. He has destroyed everything that’s been put in front of him. And Cody has wormed his away around. He even sacrificed his own brother for christ sake, just so he wouldn’t have to face him. But now, there’s no more excuses, there’s no more riddles to figure out, he has to come face to face with the truth. And the truth is, Lance Archer is a mean son of a bitch, that is going to rip his damn heart out. So, by the way, is this your weekend pass from the home or what, we haven’t seen you in a couple of months? You’re looking thick.

Arn Anderson: Jake, you almost made me believe you, almost. Two guys sitting here, for me too, this is surreal. On everybody’s wish list over the years, dream match, what if Jake and Arn battled it out? I gotta have some serious goosebumps now, Jake. We’re two guys that if we told you, a piss ant could pull a freight train, you’d hook it up, because that’s who we are, we’re called, credible. Even the length of this table, I see the evil just permeating. They used to frighten a lot people, Jake, because I was in the locker room, and I heard it, and I saw it. And then, they saw that snake in the big, wiggling, and by god, their nerves were shot. I realized way back then, that’s the distraction. The thing you have to worry about, is what i’m looking at in those eyes, what’s in that heart, that evil. Now, you got a killing machine.

Jake The Snake Roberts: You know, I’ve been through hell and back, so one more trip with you wouldn’t be so bad.

Arn Anderson: You want to say that again?

Jake The Snake Roberts: Six, eight feet separate us right now. Anytime, any place, just like, Lance Archer.

Arn Anderson: As much as I would like to, decorum, part of the things that I want to cover out here tonight Jake is, one, Iron Mike Tyson is coming out retirement and he has talked to Tony Khan, he’s going to present the championship, whether it’s your monster or it’s Cody, okay? He’s going to present that title, but word is, which I get through the grapevine is, he’s also going to get free reign, he can wander around out here on the floor, sit in the stands, go up in the ceiling, he can helicopter and he can do anything he wants. And Jake, i’m honored to share the floor with Iron Mike Tyson. The question I have to ask you, are you gonna throw that stupid snake on him? How’s that going to turn out for you, my friend?

Jake The Snake Roberts: Whatever I throw at Mike Tyson will take him down. I promised Lance Archer that he gets the first at Tyson, because he just wants to knock him out for fun. And I’ll tell you something, he can do it. Myself, I was hoping that bimbo, Brandi, would have to present the belt. I mean, I’d love to bump into her again.

Arn Anderson: One little tidbit I should probably let you know, Jake, since the snake is out of the bag, no pun intended, Cody Rhodes looked me in the eye and he said, Arn, I don’t want to win this championship, the TNT Championship because I can get a nice table at a restaurant, I can get a pay raise, I get the admiration of the fans. He said, i’ve got to do it because I have to win this. Don’t interrupt, because he’s not just Dusty Rhodes son, he’s not just Dustin Rhodes brother, he is one of the leaders of this company that have turned this business on its head in a years time, and made it the product that it is.

That’s why he has to be the champion, because he’s got to know in here, his leadership is being recognized because he earned it. Now, I know you’re sitting there, getting a little nervous after you threatened me, because you know something, i’m a vicious prick. The only reason I don’t cover the distance of this table right now, is because I have one more little bit of information, there’s some good news, Jake. Everybody out there know that Jake is doing, DDP Yoga? Good, I want you to be real limber when I spinebuster your ass and shove your head where the sun don’t shine.
