MJF says Arn Anderson, Dean Malenko, Adam Pearce, and Regal watched the matches, and says he knew he was fighting for his life. MJF says Regal pulled him away from the group and gave him three minutes to sell himself to Regal, and he did it. MJF says Regal told him he would get him a job that day, but then found out MJF was 19 and told him he was too young. MJF says his heart stopped, but then Regal told him a list of guys who he put his name on. MJF says Regal told him to work his ass off and then send him one match and one promo each month. MJF says he did it for two months, and then he got an email back from Regal telling him to only send his stuff when he became one of the best in the world.

Regal says if MJF wants to beat the devil up, then show the world right now. Regal turns his back on MJF and tells him to prove to the world.

Danielson says it is never fun to lose a match, especially to Chris Jericho and for the ROH World Championship, and it was a big deal to him. Danielson says he had a lot of high hopes for Daniel Garcia, because he thinks he can surpass him as a technical wrestler. Yuta smirks at Danielson’s response and asks Danielson how he was surprised at what happened last week. Yuta says Garcia was just using Danielson to get what he wanted, and then says the Blackpool Combat Club means something to him, Claudio Castagnoli, and Jon Moxley, but it clearly doesn’t mean anything to Danielson. Yuta gets up and walks away before Danielson can respond.
