He says he loves this shit! (So do we, Mox!) It’s been a hell of a year for him, a long road, but he didn’t win this— just like AEW belongs to us, the title belongs to us. He doesn’t have words to describe the gratitude he has toward the entire AEW family, but most importantly to us. Nothin’ much left to say, and it feels like it’s beer o’clock.
His music starts and he says he’s making it up as he goes along and it cuts out. He’ll take on anybody, any time, any place, but right now it’s time to knock back some whiskey.
He leaves the ring, winks at the camera, and blows a kiss before heading out to celebrate in the crowd.
That’s the show, folks.
