Christian Cage: “So ‘Jungle Boy’ Jack Perry has a challenge for me but he only makes his challenges face to face. Well we’re standing right here!”
“Jungle Boy” Jack Perry made his way to the ring!
Christian Cage: “You think you’re a tough guy? Throwing around challenges? Why don’t you become a challenge? We were done with you Jack. We were moving on to championships and gold and you stuck your nose in our business and cost us that match!”
Jungle Boy: “You’re complaining because I cost you one match? You cost me everything! Every single time that I have had a chance to fight back, the two of you have found a way to stack the odds against me. I’m going to take that away from you and I’m going to stack the odds against myself. Because at FULL GEAR, I want Luchasaurus once more, but this time inside a steel cage!”
Christian Cage: “We cost you everything? Maybe you realized you’re not as good as everyone said you were. Maybe you realize the real pillar is Luchasaurus. It’s obvious to me Jack that you’re not going to go away no matter how many times we put you down. So we’re going to have to put you down for good. So we accept your challenge!”
Christian Cage baited Jack Perry in but then Luchasaurus clubbed Jack Perry! Christian threw a steel chair into the ring. Luchasaurus chokeslammed Jungle Boy Jack Perry onto the chair!
