Britt: “Well is there anything more fickle than an AEW fan? So you’re cleared? No, we aren’t cleared Saraya. You’ve been coming after me since the day you’ve got her. Let me know if this is clear.
“I built AEW from the ground up until it became a fortress until superstars like you wanted to move into. And I’m damn proud of that. But that pride turns into resentment very quickly when you have the audacity to skip in here and call it your house.
“I don’t recall you laying a single brick. I get it. I know why you’re obsessed with me. It’s because I’m everything you wished you could have been.
“And let me remind me that you left your house and walked into mine. And Saraya I regret to inform you that we don’t take walk-ins. So make an appointment!”
Saraya: “I think it’s cute you put yourself on a pedestal considering you were handpicked by Tony Khan. You don’t know what it takes to be a superstar. You have no idea what it takes to make it.
“I started revolutions before wrestling was even a twinkle in your eye. You don’t know what it takes Britt. You don’t have a clue what it takes to make it but here’s another opportunity handed to you on a silver platter. It’s going to be you against me at FULL GEAR.”

Jeff Jarrett came out onto the ramp.
Jarrett: “That’s right, Sonjay. After over a million views of the debut of the Last Outlaw, it’s very apparent. The question is why is the Last Outlaw in AEW. Because when a friend calls, a friend shows up. I showed up to put a plan together and we started last week.
“Sting, Darby Allin, we’re calling you out! I’m putting a challenge out right now.”
Renee Paquette was backstage with “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry!

AEW World Champion Jon Moxley came to the ring with William Regal!
Moxley: “Sir William Regal, how old was I when we first met? Twenty-five, twenty-six? I was full of piss and vinegar back then and I thought I knew it all. I wanted to be just like you. Feared and respected. So to prove myself to you, I tried to pick a fight with you. And that did not go well at all. You tortured me and brutalized me.
“It forced me to evolve. You told me then as you finally took me under your wing, ‘And now the real work begins.’ Now who does that young kid remind you of?”
Moxley: And I will face MJF at FULL GEAR for the AEW World Championship. The question is what’s going to be different this time for MJF. Who is MJF? He seems to be having some type of existential crisis right now.
“He calls himself a pillar even though he has no idea what it’s like to have any weight on his back. Even more amusing, he calls himself ‘the devil.’ Dude, I have seen the devil, I have met the devil, I have looked in his eyes. Dude, you are not that. You are not that at all. Now I want you as William Regal wants you, to fulfill your potential one day.
“When you step into the ring in your hometown, just remember one thing. Everything you’ve done up to this point has been easy.”
