“The Salt of the Earth” MJF vs. “The Captain” Shawn Dean
As the bell ring, CM Punk runs out and MJF retreats. Punk then hits
the GTS on Dean causing MJF to get disqualified!
Winner: Dean via DQ
Punk says this happens every single week until MJF stops being a
little bitch and faces him. MJF says that everything coming out of
Punk is fake. He says that all the fans are fooled about Punk but he
knows the truth because without him CM Punk is nothing. He says that
he makes Punk relevant again and Schiavone says he calls bullshit on
that. MJF says that Punk isn’t the guy he used to be and he sold
Tony Khan on a bill of goods.
MJF says he finds it odd that Punk got so offended at MJF comparing
himself to Roddy Piper and asks if Punk thinks he’s like Piper. He
says Piper was actually talented enough to main event a WrestleMania
unlike Punk. MJF says that if he isn’t shown the proper respect
around here soon then maybe he’ll go main event a WrestleMania, too.
Punk starts laughing at MJF and says all he wants to do is kick
MJF’s ass, so just stop talking and get in the ring. Punk says if
MJF thinks the grass is greener on the other side and maybe he can
go main event night four of a “buy one get one” show and then get
released and he’ll be still there in AEW waiting on him. MJF says if
Punk wants the match then next week it will be CM Punk vs. Wardlow!
Punk says that unlike MJF, both he and Piper would fight anyone,
anywhere and eventually MJF is going to run out of people to hide
behind and then he’ll put MJF to sleep.
Chris Jericho comes down to the ring and talks about the last time
he was on TBS, a match against Booker T on WCW Thunder and he said
Booker cheated. Jericho says it took awhile to recover after 2point0
attacked him and he didn’t come to help Kingston, he came to get
some revenge on those 2point0 dipshits.
2point0 comes out and Jericho calls them “Terrence and Philip,” aye
but 2point0 reminds him of what happened the last time they saw each
other. Jericho says he can’t even comprehend anything they are
saying because he can’t stop staring at Lee’s square head. Parker
tells Jericho to shut his mouth and says Parker looks like more like
Jericho grabs his bat and threatens them but Daniel Garcia comes
from behind only to eat a shot to the ribs. 2point0 jumps Jericho
and they beat him down until PNP hit the ring alongside Eddie
Kingston and chase the heels off.
Footage of Jake Atlas’ AEW debut on AEW Dark Monday is shown.
In the back, Adam Cole and reDRagon talk about their match last week
and Cole says the boys are back together. He says he knows Kyle
O’Reilly didn’t mean to kick him in the face and the Bucks came out
to make sure they got the win, too and that makes them a super
group. Cole challenges Jake Atlas to a match on Rampage to remind
Atlas and anyone else new that comes to AEW that he is still the guy
everyone is talking about. He says he’ll buy Atlas a one-way ticket
back to Orlando.

Jim Ross interviews Serena Deeb and she says this is no longer about
beating Hikaru Shida, it’s about beating her. JR says it seems like
something about Shida eats at her but Deeb asks JR if there is any
woman on her level. She says that people call her “The Professor”
because she has a PhD in this shit and she’s paid enough dues for
every woman in this locker room. Deeb says she doesn’t ask for

Lucha Brothers have hit the ring but Black is now on the ramp.
