Backstage Samoa Joe stops Chad Gable while he was preparing for his match against Andrade. Joe mocks Gable and makes short man jokes. He says that the jokes are tired and sad but they still hurt because Chad is mentally weak. He also taunts him for thinking he has a chance at King of the Ring before walking away.
