Who is Jon Moxley? Who is MJF?
Jon Moxley comes out with William Regal. He takes the mic and asks who is Jon Moxley. He answers that he is the greatest professional wrestler in the world. He talks shit and back it up. He has travelled the world and taken on toughest challenger. He has won and defined AEW World Championship. The announcers say he likes to fight like it is good thing. But, he is literally sick in his head. He is addicted to adrleline and hurting his opponents.
Last week, Moxley asked who exactly is MJF, and he scouts his opponents. He found out that MJF is a really good singer. He has exactly one win in past six month, took a summer vacation, came back in a halloween mask, somebody handed him the casino poker chip and he is getting a shot at World title.

He gonna dump him on his head and become the world champion. MJF brings up how Moxley said he did not see any devil.
