I can’t lie. I’m not one to lay down the hammer like you guys. How about we make all weapons legal? How about the next match we make it No DQ?”

MJF: “Ricky Starks you finally did it! They’re calling what you had a ‘star-making performance.’ When I first appeared on AEW I was already a star. All hits and no misses.

And if Jon Moxley wants to fight me this Friday, but if he’s going to tempt me to go back to hell, I’m taking his ass with me.”
