“The man deserves his respect. You are the man they call ‘Ace’ but not for long because it is a fact, it is not a catchphrase, when I tell you that I am the best professional wrestler on this planet. A lot of people are just pretending. I live it night in and night out.

“I didn’t take into account that by Forbidden Door Okada may not be champion. And this weekend Okada lost his championship. But the sentiment has not changed and the challenge still stands.”
Adam Cole walked out to interrupt Page!
Cole: “You really are a stupid cowboy. Forbidden Door isn’t about AEW or New Japan, it’s about the Undisputed Elite. It’s about the Bullet Club. And the best way to showcase that is Adam Cole against Jay White.
“And speaking of Okada, he’s not even going to be there. But there is someone who will be there who wants to come out and say hello.”

Because this championship here means the world breathes with the Switchblade because this is the Switchblade Era.”
