Moxley says that he’s had a lot to think about and people probably think they know what makes him tick and what his motivations are, but they don’t. “Chris I don’t think you do either,” he says. “You offered me a car, money and 49% of Inner Circle, LLC but I don’t want any of it.”

Moxley says that he cannot be bought and he didn’t come to AEW for money. He says he came to AEW to dominate and run rough shot all over professional wrestling. “That’s why my answer is yes!”

Moxley says that if he is going to dominate then there is no better group to join than The Inner Circle. He calls Jericho the “greatest” and says he will stand by Jericho and The Inner Circle as they dominate AEW! Moxley grabs some bubbly and starts chugging it as Jericho says 2020 will be the Year of the Inner Circle.

The Inner Circle spray champagne around the ring as the fans boo. Jericho hands the keys to the Ford GT over to Moxley as a “you sold out” chant erupts.

Jericho says that he and Moxley won their matches at Wrestle Kingdom in Japan and now they’re going to continue to dominate AEW. Moxley says he forgot one last thing as The Inner Circle starts to leave the ring. “Chris, my friend, I was just kidding,” he says. “I’d never join you guys. The Inner Circle is stupid and you have nothing I want except that (pointing to the AEW Title.”

Moxley smashes a bottle over Jericho’s head and hits him with the Paradigm Shift! Paradigm Shift to Guevara and then he escapes through the crowd!
