We get a get a quick recap of some of the shenanigans from last week.
Mr. Saint Laurent talks next. He’s got big plans for Fightland that he’ll unveil later tonight, but warns that there are receipts coming to Jacob Fatu for stealing Matt Cardona’s car. He’s a man of wealth and taste, he doesn’t deal with thugs and savages like Fatu and his people. There will be a new World Titan Federation logo revealed in a minute or two. He’s going to bring sports entertainment to MLW, wrestling only exists because comic books got too expensive for virgins and now he’s trying to elevate the scene away from them.
