Jericho says he can’t be the GOAT right off the bat. He’s gotta start smaller, be better than Avalon, Nakazawa, or even his scarf. He tells MJF that he’s not as good as he thinks he is, and he’d go back to check his phone after every match/promo to see what people thought.

Sting heads out to the stage. Jake Roberts interrupts, Scorpio Sky and Ethan Page are up in the stands looking on. Roberts says every week, Sting comes out, gets interrupted, and doesn’t say anything. Jake asks where Darby Allin is at? Lance Archer comes out and grabs the mic. Archer says he’s tired of it all, he’s not going to get a match, and then just go away. He should be in the main event. This is his time and he should be talking with Schiavone. Sting finally rips the mic away and says he has something to say! Sting says he totally agrees that Archer is a main event guy and shouldn’t leave. He thinks Roberts needs to help Archer channel that energy. Sting says he’s got it in him, and he just needs to make it happen. Sting walks to the back.
