Says its awesome to see him sitting at that booth, he’s the best that’s ever done it, its awesome to see you. He has never been to Daily’s Place but this is a home for AEW. It gets him thinking about Brodie Lee. He watched the tribute show last year and it made him want to come here. MJF is a twitter troll in the flesh. He hides behind a keyboard or Dax and Cash.
MJF laced up his running shoes last week, MJF says he’s done with Punk, but we beat him last week. He understands if MJF is afraid, Punk is looking forwards to bigger things. He wants to be champion. MJF is a waste of his time, and he is a bigger waste of Khan money than Tim Tebow. On this mic and in the ring and even on commentary nobody can touch him. Sooner or later he’ll see him in this ring but it would be a real shame is somebody interfered in MJF’s quest for gold.
