Says he still thinks about when MJF tossed him off that cage and how close it was to lights out for good for him.

Jericho says Max called him the GOAT and if that’s true, if he can still be the greatest, if he can continue taking AEW to new heights… he MUST defeat MJF! Says the Inner Circle never forgives and damn sure never forgets.
Best Friends with a promo talking up Orange Cassidy’s match at Double Or Nothing as the AEW Dynamite Recap continues.
They say Kenny is supposed to be the best in the world but the comedy guy had him beat twice! They ask why Don Callis is even here, he’s just a con man. Says the bad guys cheated and they won. But Orange says if you think it’s over… it’s not.
Omega and Callis interviewed by Marvez, they dismiss the idea of Orange coming after them and Kenny also acting very overconfident as it pertains to his upcoming defense against Jungleboy. Kenny says there’s a big difference between a Jungle Boy and a Jungle Man, and an even bigger difference between a Jungle Man and a Jungle Champion! But he does love his theme. Kenny and Callis singalong with the music.
