Up next: Tony Schiavone interviewed ROH World TV Champion Samoa Joe!
Samoa Joe: “You state that it is a shocker what I did to Wardlow? Is it shocking for a man to refuse to be a victim? Is it shocking that Wardlow, week after week, ran his mouth and failed to recognize the most dangerous man in the room? And for that mistake he paid the ultimate price.
“I refuse to be a victim like most of the people in this building tonight. I saved myself! And if you or anybody else has a problem with it, they can take it up with me.”

PAC: “Ladies and gentlemen, let me ask you a question. Do you think the Death Triangle are stupid? Do you think we’re not aware of what’s going on? Do you think we haven’t seen the videos? Heard the rumors.
“If there are certain individuals who think they can make their triumphant return this Saturday at FULL GEAR and if they think they can just mosey in and best the Death Triangle, well that’s ridiculous.
“And you know who you are. So I will say this, and I’ll make it simple: if you want some this Saturday, then please bring the heat, because I promise you Death Triangle runs from nobody.”
A graphic appeared showing it’ll be The Elite against Death Triangle this Saturday!

Up next: AEW World Champion Jon Moxley and William Regal made their way to the ring!
Mox: “I am Jon Moxley and I am the AEW World Champion. They say the championship doesn’t make the man, the man makes the championship. So who exactly is Jon Moxley? I’ll tell you. I am the best pro wrestler on the planet earth. I have taken on all comers and I have defined the AEW World Championship.
“The announcers say I love to fight like it’s a good thing. It’s not. I’m sick in the head, man. I am literally sick in the head. I am addicted to the rush of adrenaline and pain and being in wars. I love it man. You can’t really hurt me because I literally don’t care. That is who Jon Moxley is.
“Last week I asked the question: Who is MJF? And I am the world champion and I scout my opponents so I did some research to find out. He’s actually a really good singer. I found out he has exactly one win in this ring in the last six months. He took a summer vacation and came back with a Halloween mask. So figure me if I’m not exactly shaking in my boots.
“You people see the MJF he wants you to see. Prepared speeches, handpicked opponents. I see a kid playing wrestler. I see a man filled with fear that maybe he won’t live up to the hype. But you are going to see something very, very special at FULL GEAR. MJF is not challenging me. I am challenging MJF to show me he’s got some guts.”
Stokely Hathaway walked to the ring and the Firm blindsided Moxley and William Regal!
MJF’s music hit!
MJF dropped Lee Moriarty and the Gunns. MJF hit Ethan Page with a big left hand, clearing the field!
MJF: “Jon, while you’re laying there in a ton of pain. I did not save your ass because I like you. No, it’s because I didn’t want any of your fan club making excuses for you when I knock you out. When I got into this business my ultimate goal was to become the best wrestler in the world. And I know this Saturday I’m in for the fight of my life. But I’m not the same kid I was the first time we fought for that piece of gold.
“You can make me bleed buckets. But I will not stop because I need that belt more than I need oxygen. Because when you’re the man that holds the AEW World Title, that makes you the best wrestler on God’s green earth, and it’s my time!
“I heard you last week when you said I’m not the devil. Allow me to tell you the greatest trick the devil ever pulled is convincing the world he didn’t exist. And this Saturday at FULL GEAR you’ll find out I’m the devil himself.”
Mox: “You know, I never really saw what the big deal was with you anyway. But this weekend at FULL GEAR, we’re gonna find out, if you don’t have it, I’m going to reach in and pull it out of you. This Saturday the training wheels come off.”
