WINNERS: Kip Sabian & Miro
Miro and Kip are still upset about the arcade cabinet and call out the Best Friends. Backstage, Archer is attacking Moxley viciously in the hallway as Jake Roberts watches on with satisfaction.
MJF comes out after the commercial break and trashes the trash fans in Jacksonville. MJF says he is here to stay on top, just like the man who he’s about to introduce out to hear his groundbreaking announcement: Chris Jericho. He does come out with The Inner Circle (in the jackets MJF gifted them, well, except for Sammy Guevara).
MJF gives Sammy his jacket and after Chris demands Sammy to put it on. It’s huge on him. Max commends Jericho’s physique and hair (he touches Jericho’s hair). Chris tells him to cut the shit and get to the announcement. MJF senses hostility and he’s gonna keep it real. The two biggest draws are looking eye-to-eye. That’s why Chris is the Demo God and MJF is the Ratings Ruler. Crowd boos the bad nickname. MJF states that somehow, some way he and Chris have never gotten in the squared circle. When you watch animals on TV, specifically piranhas, they don’t eat each other. They’re both predators. However, their prey is adapting. What if they work together? MJF is having a hard time saying he’d like to join the Inner Circle, but he somehow manages to muster something out. Ortiz interrupts and says they don’t want Max in the Inner Circle. Chris settles it down and says to let them all think it over. Next week, how about the two have a…steak dinner? Max accepts the challenge at a restaurant next week.
Britt Baker and Tony Schiavone are both getting worked on in the spa. Britt says Rule #5 of being a Roll Model is being the baddest bitch on the planet. Britt notices Tony is naked and has him get a chest wax. Britt makes her epic comeback next week.
