Page Jon Moxley challenging him next week at the KIA Forum in Los
Angeles. As of Wednesday, Page is still not medically cleared to
wrestle. Page then looked down at the doctor and said that if he
does not get into a fight this week, then next week at the KIA Forum
in LA he will be cleared to ‘knock Moxley’s dick in the dirt.”
Moxley then came out. He was surprised that Page was even in Seattle
tonight. Moxley said he is sick of the sympathy cards and vigils.

not hear Moxley as his mic was not working properly. Moxley then
dropped a couple F-bombs, followed by “Go Seahawks” to get the fans
focused on him again. Moxley said Page was mad at Moxley for
knocking him out, but it is how Moxley called him out and that he
made him a joke. Page then said Moxley was threatened by him and
that he (Page) has two in the chamber with Moxley’s name on them and
he will take his shot at Moxley at the KIA Forum next week in Los
Angeles. Moxley then said Page’s punk a– does not belong in the same

then said that if Lance Storm & Dean Malenko could have a child,
he would be more charismatic than Danielson.
MJF went on to say the title that is around his waist is what makes
him the Best in the World. MJF then said guys in the business like
Disco Inferno, Eric Bischoff & Jim Cornette have also called him
the Best in the World. Danielson interrupted MJF and said now is the
time for them to fight. MJF said for Danielson to become the number
one contender, he must wrestle every week until February 8 and then
he will get an AEW Title shot at Revolution, which is March 5 at the
Chase Center in San Francisco.
Danielson then told MJF he will wrestle when he wants to and will
get his title shot at the AEW World Title when he earns it. MJF said
that Tony Khan nor the EVP’s run AEW, only he does. Danielson agreed
to MJF’s terms but only if Danielson can pick the stipulation for
their match at the Revolution PPV in March. MJF agreed. Danielson

5-0, he will get MJF in a 60 minute Iron Man Match at Revolution on
Sunday, March 5 in San Francisco.
