We get a promo package on the MJF title defense against Brian Danielson at Revolution.

Danielson enters the arena with Renee in street clothes.  He starts a promo on MJF, who enters of course.  Brian cuts him off and tells him to shut up.  Danielson basically cuts MJF down because he cheats and wants to have the recognition and life he has.  Danielson challenges him to a fight right now.  MJF starts to act a bit concerned with Danielson’s rage.  Brian says he wants the world championship and MJF better be ready to go for 60 minutes.  There was some colorful Danielson language blurred out.  The show ends with MJF walking off and Brian enjoying the crowd.

    Pile of trash, had enough after the second match.

  2. John says:

    Botch after botch in the ladder match and the referees having to hold down the ladder so that Hobbs can get the title. The mismatch of OC and Big Bill and how the match went. They should have never fought. The first match was ridiculous and not in a good way.
