Jericho then appears on the titantron and says Moxley looked great in the ring and offers the invitation to join the Inner Circle.

Winner: Sammy Guevara
Private Party is interviewed about their New Year’s Resolutions when Adam Page comes out. Isiah says that Adam looks worried, and Adam says they should be worried because he could kick both of their asses. Page walks away frustrated and Private Party wonders why he’s upset.
Out comes MJF. He says the roles has been reversed because Cody now needs him to make the stipulations. MJF says the first stipulation is that the match has to take place at Revolution. He also states if he touches him before then, Cody doesn’t get the match.
The second stipulation is that in order to wrestle him, he has to defeat an opponent of his choosing. That man is Wardlow. He then says he doesn’t know if that stipulation is enough, and says he should up the ante. He then says it should be a steel cage match. The final stipulation is that he will get on all fours as he whips him with a belt 10 times.
MJF says each whip will be a reminder that he’s better than him and he knows it.
Backstage, Jurassic Park is interviewed and Jungle Boy states that he proved he could go toe to toe with Jericho for 10 minutes and that it will be a big year for the three.
Adam Page joins the commentary team. Riho is asked about her title match next week, but before she speaks, Baker cuts her off and says she’s here each week and busts her ass while managing a dental practice on the side. She gets to win by the skin of her teeth and leave, and Baker leaves.
