Sterling says they must’ve ignored the email he sent earlier, and then Tony Nese says they have a document that has been issued to them. Sterling says the document now says he earns the trademark for the term “scissor me” in professional wrestling, so everything involving scissoring goes to him.

Footage of last week’s match between MJF and Wheeler Yuta and the aftermath airs, and then Alex Marvez interviews MJF. Before MJF can talk, Stokely Hathaway interrupts. MJF says it’s great that Hathaway interrupted him and everybody finds it funny, except for him. MJF says this is strike number two for Hathaway, and he will fire him if he gets strike number three. MJF tells Hathaway to get out of his shot, and then turns back to Marvez. MJF says William Regal is about as villainous as Mary Poppins, and they have a dark past. MJF says he is not afraid to tell their story, and then says he doesn’t know if he was going to shake Yuta’s hand last week or not. MJF says he learned long ago that nice guys finish last, and he knows everyone in the locker room and the audience hates him. He says no one knows what it’s like to be him, and doesn’t know that it’s like to know you have to be the bad guy. MJF says when he walks through the curtain, he doesn’t like himself either, but that’s what it takes to become the World Champion.

Tony Schiavone is in the ring, and he interviews the AEW World Champion, Jon Moxley. Moxley says is feels good to be in Toronto, and says everyone has come from far and wide to try and knock him down. Moxley says it’s not all fun and games being the World Champion and a lot of guys crumble under the pressure, some faster than others. Moxley says he loves the pressure, and that brings him to Hangman Adam Page. Before Moxley can say more, Page interrupts and comes to the ring. Page says what Moxley said last week meant the world to him, because he has watched Moxley for the past three years and has come to respect him in and out of the ring. MJF is shown watching from the skybox, and then Page says Moxley shattered the illusions he had about him when he called him a “nice kid.” Page asks if that is Moxley feels about him, and Moxley says that’s exactly what he thinks about him. Moxley says he doesn’t think Page is the same guy that knocked him off a ladder a year ago, and says he doesn’t think Page has it in his guts to knock him out. Page says he did hesitate in May and it cost him the World title, and then he failed with his best friends in going after the Trios title. He says his new friends and his old friends have disappeared, and he has nothing now. Page says he is still here, because he is a man. Page says he has done the same things as Moxley and he keeps coming back because he is a man. Page splits himself open as he gets fired up, and he says he doesn’t care who is there to watch Moxley next week, because he will beat him within an inch of his life next week to take back what he never should have let slip away. Page says he will be the next AEW World Champion and wipes some of his blood on Moxley’s shirt. Page says unlike MJF, he wanted to tell Moxley that face-to-face and man-to-man. Page goes to leave, but turns around and stares Moxley down.
