– Wardlow arrives in the ring with the security guards for his mysterious encounter. MJF and Shawn Spears arrive on the scene. MJF says he’d like to say he’s happy to be back in Maryland, but that would be a lie. MJF says he’s going to watch the game backstage tonight because he still can’t watch the pigs here tonight. But Wardlow should be afraid of the upcoming giant, William Morrissey (Big Cass).

– After the fight, the security guards enter the ring. Wardlow hits all the agents one after the other! He grabs an agent and throws him at everyone else at the back of the ring. Wardlow takes the microphone and says he will never stop until he gets his hands on MJF and disengages him from his contract. It doesn’t matter how big they are. MJF says Wardlow wants to get his hands on him. How would Wardlow feel if the two met? If Wardlow wins, he will release him from his contract. Do people want to see the game? The crowd approves. MJF says the match will take place, but! But he has conditions, he will give him the conditions when he signs a contract. This contract signing is not going to happen in a landfill like here tonight. The signing will take place in the most magical place in the world, Long Island New York (next week at Dynamite).
– Backstage, Tony Schiavone is with Soho, Storm, Baker and Hayter for their commentary on the game at Rampage. Baker says that every page of the story is named after Baker, so it’s fitting that the story begins with a women’s first opening match at Rampage. Soho says Toni Storm is looking forward to meeting her at the Owen Hart Tournament. Friday will humble them.
– Back, Schiavone is in the ring and introduces us to the champion Page of Adam’s Hangman who enters the ring. Schiavone asks Page to comment on his match against CM Punk for Double or Nothing 2022. Page says it would be easy to come here and say how much respect he has for Punk. Who can’t wait to shake his hand and face the best in the world at Double or Nothing. And it would be really easy to say that he is looking forward to a historic match. It would be easy, but it won’t happen. At Double or Nothing there will be no handshake. It will destroy CM Punk! Page looks at a fan in the Punk t-shirt and tells him that he is going to ask for a refund after Double or Nothing. He has to break the bad news, but he has to say our beloved CM Punk isn’t here tonight. Page says Punk is recording a new TV show. But no matter where CM Punk is, he has to tell him that he will humiliate him. Punk wanted a fight, he will have it, the fight of his life of him.
