Renee Paquette was in the ring to interview Christian Cage!
Christian Cage: “For the better part of the last six months, I beat Jungle Boy at will. And he’s saying in 2023 he’s going to win a singles championship? Over my dead body!
“Now Jack I’ve been watching some of your matches the past month or so. Do you want to roll somebody up for a quick win or do you want to beat someone for their championship? I showed you how a real man conducts his business when I smashed you with a chair and left you in a pool of your own blood and piss.
“You just want to win the championship so you can go home and show it to mommy. You treat my business like a video game. Nobody can do the things that I do inside this ring. I am one of one. Unlike your generation, I treat this business like an ATM and I am not done milking it dry.
“So I have a challenge for you this Sunday. No rules, no regulations. Just a fight. And at the end of the day you are just your father’s son, a no-talent hack. This business is not for you kid. You don’t have any grit. You don’t have what it takes. You don’t have an ounce of what I have inside!”
The arena lights went dark.
On the screen a video played of “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry. He dug a grave for Christian Cage!

“My dream is to become AEW World Champion and I’m willing to fight for it! So Max this Sunday at REVOLUTION you’d better be willing to fight for everything you have for sixty minutes and if you don’t, you’re going to get your head kicked in!”
