MJF was presented with the Key to Long Island!
MJF: “Obviously this a huge honor. There are people out there who don’t deserve it, like Sammy, Darby, and Jungle Boy. Let me tell you a story. When I was a kid, I suffered from ADD. Growing up with ADD had its disadvantages at times. I had a teacher that would pounce on me. She’d point at the board and ask for an answer. I told her I didn’t know the answer and she’d laugh at me and tell the class not to be like me.
“On the last day of school she asked me where my brain went that I couldn’t pay attention, and I said professional wrestling. She said, ‘Maxwell, the probability of you being champion is slim to none. Well, it looks like your math was a bit off, because I just got the key to Long Island and I am the AEW World Heavyweight Champion!’”
MJF asked the arena if they wanted to hear an encore. “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry was disguised as one of the band members. Jack Perry and MJF had a pull apart brawl!

Tony Schiavone entered the ring to interview Sammy.
Sammy: “Look, Tony, I just did something the world champion doesn’t do: wrestle. What was that I was just watching? American Idol?
“You know, Max, you came out here and you said you beat every one of the pillars. But let’s be honest. When you and I got in the ring, I had you beat until another person you used came out and helped you win. You didn’t beat me. Shawn Spears and a steel chair beat me!
“You lied, you cheated, you manipulated your way to the top. And honestly, Tony, I’m almost jealous of it. But who are you Max? You were Cody’s friend, and then you’re not. You were Tony’s friend, and then you’re not. You were in the Inner Circle, and then you’re not.
“You sold your soul. I built this brick by brick, moment by moment. I put my heart and soul into this. You can boo me, you can cheer me, I’m not going anywhere.
“I love AEW. I’m not using this place to go anywhere else. I met my wife here. I main evented pay-per-views. Screw Darby Allin. Screw Jungle Boy. Screw MJF.”

“Hangman” Adam Page came down after the match, but he was beaten down by the BCC, outnumbered. Danielson yelled “Amateur” at Adam Page.
Bryan Danielson held up a screwdriver. “I think the house that is AEW needs to be fixed up from all these amateurs. Amateurs! Amateurs! Amateurs!”
