Moose & Willie Mack Segment 

Moose: Injury update: Willie Mack will physically not be able to compete in a IMPACT Wrestling ring for a couple weeks. And I know you’re asking, why is that? Because I hurt Willie Mack, because that’s what I do, I hurt people. And the funny thing is, I haven’t even been angry yet. I don’t think you guys at home will understand what I’m capable of doing when I actually get angry. But do you know what makes me angry? The fact that everything I have done to Willie Mack, the last few weeks, and all you guys keep talking about is the IMPACT World Champion, Rich Swann. Rich Swann, I respect you. I think you’re fierce. I think you’re a great competitor. But the difference between me and you, is that you stay hurt, while I hurt people. Now, I want you to do me one favor, Rich Swann. Call your good old buddy Willie Mack, and ask him one simple question, what does pain feel like?

Willie Mack: Pain, huh. You want me to tell him what pain feels like?

Moose: Willie, I know you’re angry, but before you take another step, you need to ask yourself this question, do you really want to make me angry?

Willie Mack: Like I said, I didn’t come out here to wrestle. I’m not even mad at you, Moose. I’m not mad about losing to you. I’m not mad about you putting me on the shelf for a few weeks. The thing that pisses me off the most, see, i’ve been fighting my entire life, and when a referee decides to tell me when i’m done, to tell me that I can’t go no more, when I know got plenty left, that really pisses me off.

Moose: What are you trying to say, Willie, spit out? What are you trying to say?

Willie Mack: What i’m trying to say is, i’m gonna take matters into my own hands. No referee gonna tell me when i’m done, so i’m gonna have a match with you at Genesis. An I Quit Match, where I make my own decisions.

Moose: Like I said before, Willie, I know you’re angry, but I don’t think you’re being smart because I don’t think i’m the guy you want to have a I Quit Match with.

Willie Mack: Well, I came out here to deliver a message, I didn’t come out here to wrestle, so but this part of the message is gonna have to be, face to face.
