- Jim Ross sits down earlier today with Hangman, Omega and The Young Bucks ahead of their title match this weekend. The Bucks say that they never imagined that Page and Omega would be sitting here as Tag Team Champions when they started AEW.

Ross says that he believes The Bucks are the best tag team in the world and asks why they haven’t won the titles yet. Omega says that he and Page stumbled onto something incredible but he knows that The Bucks will eventually get there. He says that they felt like it was there chance to show people that they were as good as The Bucks.

Page sarcastically says “it was just an accident, right” and is visibly irritated. Ross asks Page why he is uncomfortable right now and The Bucks taunt him for drinking alcohol in the interview. Page says he isn’t uncomfortable and The Bucks say that they just care about him, at the end of the day.

Jericho calls Cappetta a “weird little man” and says that judging by his “technique” that is no wonder WCW went out of business. He says that the champion goes last in his world, so they switch to Moxley for the first weigh-in.

Moxley weighs in at 234 pounds. Jericho stops before getting on the scale and screams at the fans to shutup, so they do the Chiefs “tomahawk chop” chant at him. He calls Pat Mahomes a “piece of shit” in response. Before Jericho weighs in, Moxley headbutts him in the face!
