Long Island, NY (UBS Arena)
Results by: Josh Boutwell of Wrestleview.com
MJF’s music hits but CM Punk walks out instead and he gets MASSIVE boos and he soaks it all in. As he gets in the ring a smattering of “CM Punk” chants start but are quickly drowned out by more boos. He taunts them by saying Chicago is so much louder and gets boos poured all over him. Punk asks the crowd if MJF was their guy and then he pulls off his jacket revealing a Four Pillars of AEW shirt with Britt Baker on it in place of MJF. He calls MJF an incel, too.
Punk says he stepped to MJF in his face and all he did was run away like a coward and then hide behind his buddy. He says when he was a kid he hated Dennis Rodman because he played for the Pistons but then he played for the Bulls and he was his guy. He says Dennis was his “Worm,” so he understands that MJF is their “worm.” He says he isn’t mad at the fans, he just feels sad for them.
Punk says he wants next from the winner of Page/Danielson and he believes MJF wants next, too. He says they need to settle their thing before one of them goes on to fight for the title. He says MJF keeps running from him. Punk says if MJF is their hero he understands that because the Islanders haven’t won anything since 1984 either.
Punk challenges MJF to a one-on-one match. “I don’t want you to run like they do in Long Island, I want you to stand and fight like they do in Chicago,” Punk says. Punk says he’ll face MJF tonight if he wants but says he knows he won’t do it. He says if MJF is Long Island’s role model then they’re all a bunch of chicken shits and leaves the ring.
MJF shows up to his old football field in a sports car as a narrator calls him a hero and talks about how great he is. He pulls out his letterman jacket and walks onto the field and the narrator continues. We cut to the arena and MJF’s music hits to a GIGANTIC reaction.
