MJF: “Cut my music! I got it from here Renee. Ladies and gentlemen, the devil has arrived in Virginia. We got any devil worshippers in the house today?”


Renee: “Should Jon Moxley retain tonight, you’ll be facing him at FULL GEAR. How do you feel about that?”


MJF: “Listen, Renee, with all due respect, and I do mean with all due respect, when I think of Jonathan, only one word comes to mind: Mid. Last week when I said I was going to earn it, I meant what I said. I may have gotten carried away when I said I was going to wrestle the whole thing clean. I mean, c’mon, I’m still MJF.


“When Regal said he used his brass knuckles because he wanted to, not because he wanted to. Alluding to my Dynamite Diamond Ring. So I promise I will not use my Dynamite Diamond Ring at FULL GEAR. Because I don’t need it. I only need a grudge. And I’m chock full of them.


“And come November 19th, I ain’t fighting Regal, I ain’t fighting Moxley, I ain’t fighting Penta, I am fighting every single scumbag who said I wasn’t good enough. And I’m going to take this chip on my shoulder and shove it down each and every one of their throats when I become AEW World Champion—”


Stokely Hathaway interrupted MJF.


“Max, I get it, you want Mox at 100% at FULL GEAR and we won’t lay a hand on him.”


MJF hit the microphone out of Hathaway’s hand.


MJF: “If Moxley gets past Pentagon tonight, I need him at 110% at FULL GEAR. You don’t look at him or touch him or you’re fired.”
