-In the back, some of the roster has positive words for Hardy. AJ shows up and sakes his hand.

-Borash is with Roode, who says he was Beer Money, he was Fortune, he never needed Storm, Kaz or AJ. All they ever did was stop Roode from his potential. But now he has kicked them to the curb, and he is the champion. He was the leader he was the star, and AJ’s ego got the best of him. Roode is now the face of the company and AJ cannot stand it.
