– The music of Adam Cole begins and he arrives in the ring with the rest of Undisputed Elite. Cole says first of all, he’s happy to be back in the ring. And even better, being back in the ring with his friends. He has a bad newz, unfortunately he is still not released by the doctor. But he took this time to reflect. Thinking about the success of the Undisputed Elite and the things they can work together, what they can fix. A good group comes with a good leader, but also an alchemy between its members, talent and precisely, we are currently looking at the five best in the industry. Even more important: loyalty, to fight with our brothers no matter what. He came to AEW because of the Young Bucks, that’s precisely loyalty. He’s been around the world with O’Reilly and Fish, it’s still loyalty. Loyalty is everything. Which brings him to the Trios Tournament… Cole says he would so love to have Undisputed Elite as the original champions, but if he doesn’t get released by the doctor and neither does O’Reilly, if the Bucks do not select Fish as a partner they will not be able to make the tournament! Cole says the Bucks won’t be able to do the tournament without Fish! Fish and O’Reilly attack the Bucks! They’re kicking the Bucks. Fish jams Matt Jackson’s head into a chair, Cole gets on the corner, but Adam Hangman Page comes into the ring with a metal pipe. Undisputed Elite flees the ring. Page helps Matt Jackson up and leaves backstage.
– Behind the scenes, we find Jon Moxley. Moxley says that tonight the last survivor of the Hart Dungeon will face the last survivor of the Blackpool Combat Club for a match against him. Who does he want to see win? It does not matter. It’s not important to face your friend or an enemy. When the bell rings, he has no respect for anyone. Whether it’s Wednesday, Friday or Saturday. When he is in the ring he wants to break his opponent in two and draw blood. In the end the Hart Dungeon will look like a health care center. Moxley says Jericho and Yuta better be ready for next week, it’s his life, it’s not a game.
