The Pinnacle makes their way to the ring, led by MJF. Dax Harwood says Stadium Stampede didn’t go the way they wanted as that match isn’t made for men like them. He continues to say that they tried to end the careers of Santana and Ortiz to show that they still has an edge. Cash Wheeler steps in and says he doesn’t give a shit about their families and says that the Pinnacle works together as a family. Shawn Spears comes in and runs down Sammy Guevara and calls him a glorified indy wrestler.

Wardlow says then accepts Hagar’s challenge and says when he is standing across from him, he is in Wardlow’s world.
MJF says he is tired of people telling him that he has something to prove and that he grew up watching Chris Jericho and reading his books. MJF talks about idolizing Jericho but realized that he wasn’t even on the same level. MJF then denies Jericho’s request for a match. MJF then turns his attention to Guevara and says he doesn’t belong in the same ring as him and that he is better than him, and Sammy knows it.
Jericho appears on the big screen with his bat and says they know what happens when they don’t give the Inner Circle what they want. Jericho says they can talk about it while they are walking home and the Inner Circle is seen smashing the Pinnacle’s limo that they arrived in earlier in the night.

Callis congratulates Jungle Boy for earning a shot at the AEW World Championship, but says he is like the band that sings his theme song, he is a one hit wonder. Omega says he sees a little bit of himself in Jungle Boy, however, he is missing something. Callis says he is missing the guts but is interrupted by Jungle Boy’s music as he makes his way out to the ring.
Omega says he is surprised as he doesn’t think Jungle Boy is a promo guy and wonders what he could do in front of a wrestling god. Jungle Boy then grabs the microphone and says he talks too much before the two begin trading blows. Omega rakes Jungle Boy’s eyes and gains the advantage but quickly tries to get Omega in the Snare Trap. The Young Bucks then run out to the ring as Jungle Boy retreats to the floor.
