Violent By Design, Heath, Rhino and The Briscoes Segment
Eric Young: Power and control, that’s what we desired, and that’s what we took. At Rebellion, an eight team elimination gauntlet, and we ran through them all. We beat seven of the best tag teams this world had to offer. The picture that you saw that night, the picture you’re looking at right now, it’s permanent. That picture is forever. And if you’re being honest, if you’re being honest, if you people are being honest, there’s nothing that you or any team in this world or the next could do about it. I’ve said it 1,000 times, and we keep proving you wrong. This world doesn’t belong to you. It belongs to us.
– HEATH & Rhino join the conversation.
Rhino: I hear you, New York. And you’re gonna hear me too because at Rebellion, we get the retribution we deserved. Eric, I still hear your voices in the back of my mind from when you were brainwashing me. So, we have some unfinished business, punk. And retribution is not the only thing we want. Heath and I want those tag team titles. You want us to beat them for those tag team titles?
– The Briscoes make their way to the ring.
Jay Briscoe: Hey, speaking of unfinished business, if y’all didn’t think Dem Boys was gonna come back after the bull crap that happened at the Multiverse, then y’all crazy as hell. You see, everywhere we have been, we have won titles and it ain’t gonna be no different here. We’re coming for them.
– Rhino challenges The Briscoes to a match to close the segment.
