He says he has been on the top of every promotion he has worked with and has broken records. Winning AEW World Championship match is everything for him, and he will do anything to win it.
MJF takes over the promo and tells us that he wrote down two names – Cody Rhodes & Adam Cole- as his opponents he wanted to face from the first day in wrestling business. He talks about doing his bidding in the independent scene before he got to know about All In and he reached out to Cody Rhodes to be part of it. He talks about opening All In 2018 card, which led to Tony Khan approaching him for AEW. He says if it was not All In, there would be no MJF. He moves on to talk about becoming a generational talent in front of our eyes in AEW and becoming the AEW World Champion.
And now, he is going to be in the main event of the biggest wrestling show. It is his honor to headline the show with his friend, but it does not mean everything to him. Triple B means everything to him. He has worked and did everything to obtain this. And Cole is mistaken if he thinks he is gonna lay down for him even though he is a like a brother for him. Cole says, “may the best man win.” MJF replies, “the best man will win, since his name is MJF, and he is Better than You”. They fist bump to close their promo. Aussie Open attack them but Cole and MJF deal with them easily. They set up for double clothesline but Aussie Open slip out. Cole gets ready for a super kick behind MJF but does not hit it when MJF turns around. They hug in the ring to close the segment.
