Rich Swann, Tommy Dreamer, Sami Callihan, Chris Bey, and Moose Segment
Rich Swann: Cut that, please. Now, my whole life, I wanted to be a professional wrestler. I worked, busted my tail off, and I dreamed that one day, all my hard work would pay off and I would become a Worlds Heavyweight Champion. And now, as you see, that hard work has paid off and I am the IMPACT World Champion. But now that I am the champion, I didn’t realize what a target I would have on my back. I got people coming at me from all over the place, every single direction, but that’s all right. I fight hard. And I didn’t come out here to complain. I didn’t come out here to whine and cry. I actually have a little bit of other business to attend to, so if I could ask Tommy Dreamer to come out to this ring, it would be greatly appreciated.
What’s good, Tommy? Why do you look so concerned? We’re boys, right? Now, February 13th, that’s No Surrender, but for those of you who don’t know, February 13th just so happens to be Tommy Dreamer’s 50th Birthday. Hey, let me tell you something, man. You’ve done so much for this industry, you’ve helped so many guys back there and countless locker rooms. You’ve been an inspiration. Tommy, you helped me out so much in my career, man, even just, you know, when I was watching wrestling back in the day in the land of extreme, you was that innovator of violence, you was that dude that had no fear, you didn’t surrender. So, let me just say, February 13th, it would be my honor if you would let me fulfill a dream of mine and defend this world championship against you.
Sami Callihan: Now, cut out my awesome new theme music. What is this bull crap? Typical politicking, Tommy Dreamer, trying to get himself over as usual. And the IMPACT Wrestling World Champion, Rich Swann, who lost to Kenny Omega and embarrassed the company. See, I may have lost, Barbed Wire Massacre, but at least I didn’t embarrass the company. I am the heart and soul of this damn company. And if anyone, and I mean anyone deserves a shot that title, it’s The Draw, Sami Callihan.
Chris Bey: Yo, yo, yo. It sounds like we’re giving away gifts. Is that what it is? Let’s talk about No Surrender, because No Surrender isn’t just February 13th, it’s not just Tommy Dreamer 50th Birthday, but it’s also my Birth-Bey where I will be 25 years younger than Grandpa Dream-Dream. So if there’s a gift that we need to be giving out, it should be the gift to the world of Rich Swann vs. Chris Bey II.
Moose: I actually think it’s quite funny that all of you guys are too scared to challenge for this title, so I figured I would come out here to interject. Now, Rich Swann, unlike Chris Bey and Sami Callihan, you have never beat me. And I know you’re a man of your word. And I also know that you have a really good memory for when I almost decapitated your best friend, Willie Mack. You did give me a title opportunity.
Rich Swann: Yeah, I did give you a title opportunity. I gave you the opportunity last week, but what did you say? Oh, no, we’ll do this on Moose’s time. Moose’s Time? Well, guess what? Your time is coming up, brother, and you’re right, I did beat Chris Bey and Sami Callihan. But the match is already set, February 13th, Rich Swann/Tommy Dreamer, so I guess we’re on my time now.
