*Commercial Break*
MJF and Wardlow are in the ring. MJF says that if Cody wants a match with him it has to happen on PPV at Revolution because he doesn’t wrestle for nothing. That said, if Cody even touches him before that they will never face each other.
However he does have a few stipulations. The first of which, is that Cody will have to go one-on-one with an opponent and beat them to get the match, and it’s none other than Wardlow. MJF then pretends to talk to Wardlow – who doesn’t speak, just like Jake Hager – and says they’ve agreed to make the match a steel cage.
However there is one more stipulation. And that is that Cody will come to the ring and allow him to whip him with his belt not once, not twice, not three times etc, but ten times! And the scars his belt leaves will be a reminder that MJF is better than him.
