WINNERS: KENNY OMEGA & HANGMAN ADAM PAGE
Cody Rhodes comes out and gets on the mic.
He says he came out here full of his usual self-righteousness and asked Maxwell Jacob Friedman to name his price, and he did, and it’s rather expensive. He calls for a graphic with MJF’s stipulations laid out and runs through them bottom to top— he’s got to wrestle Wardlow inside of a steel cage and he surmises that the strategy is that a match that violent will take a toll and give Max a better chance to win, but that surprises him.
He knows what it’s like to have your thunder stolen and he thinks that people might come to the conclusion that Wardlow shouldn’t be carrying MJF’s bags after they see him in action. And then we have the most controversial of those stipulations, that Cody be lashed ten times on live TV. He understands the symbolism, but if Max thinks that his skin welting and bleeding is the worst thing to come of this rivalry, he’s wrong.
As far as not being able to touch MJF, he doesn’t need to because he lives rent-free inside of his head and he and everybody knows that Max is stalling. He’s wanted to be famous his entire life, with his pageant mommy and daddy parading him on Rosie as a kid, until he found out that he was good at pro wrestling. All these old-timers say he’s a true real old-school heel, but he’s not old-school, he’s lazy.
So as far as these stipulations go, Cody accepts. And he knows the perfect place for the steel cage match, to boot. And having this match may mean he’s failed as a mentor, but he’s got one last lesson to impart— this isn’t MJF’s story, he’s just one chapter in Cody’s, and at Revolution, he’s going to give him his own goddamn scar
Joey Janela talks about how 2020 is a new year for him but what happened in Jacksonville last week? He got punched in the balls by his ex-girlfriend Penelope Ford. He said time and again he didn’t want anything to do with her, but they both know that the only way Ford can create buzz for herself is on his name. Now she’s walking around like hot stuff with her new sidepiece Kip Sabian?
He dares Kip to cross this line and moves on, saying last year his record wasn’t what it should have been, but next week he’s got Rey Fenix and something to prove, and he’s gonna show everyone why he’s a Bad, Bad Boy

Mox is a rebel and that’s why they had to take him out, eye for an eye. So they’re gonna keep an eye on him, since he only has one now, and PAC and Darby Allin should thank him for letting them jump right to the top of the line.
