You’ve been controlled your whole life. Politicians, corporations, media, entertainment, even love. They have all had authority over you. Do you think what you’re supposed to think? Feel how you’re supposed to feel? Buy what you’re supposed to buy? Say what you’re up supposed to say? Do you allow this world to walk over you, give in, conform? Do you fight? Do you fight back? Fight back against those who lie to you, steal from you, betray you? Those that demean you, to degrade you, try to cancel you? Fight back against these tyrants of your heart, your body, your soul, and your mind. Find purpose. Find the light. Control your narrative. Live in this moment, because tonight, i’m living in this moment, here. And you, you have been warned.

Doc Gallows: We’re coming out with Talk-N-Shop Protein soon.
Karl Anderson: My god, you’re massive. You know, for months, and months, the rumors were circulating. For months, and months, people were wondering where The Big LG and The Machine Gun were gonna fall. Where were they gonna land? Where were they gonna go? Where are The Good Brothers gonna end up? And, it’s safe to say that, we’re beyond excited to being stand right here. Ladies and gentlemen, The Good Brothers have arrived in IMPACT Wrestling. Saturday Night, Slammiversary was trending worldwide, number one worldwide. Why?
Because of The Good Brothers. Slammiversary on Saturday Night, was trending worldwide, and the talk of the wrestling world. Man, I got text messages from everyone, in all different kind of companies, saying, boys, we can’t wait to see what you do. And what did we do? We were the talk of the wrestling world, like The Good Brothers always do. Because what you have with us is, not only the best tag team in the world, you’ve got, literally, the best big man in this business, right now. And i’m gonna go ahead and say it, you’re looking at the best wrestler in the world, and that is the machine gun, baby. Slammiversary, we came to IMPACT Wrestling, and turned it upside down. Big LG, talk to them.
Doc Gallows: Well, the machine gun’s not wrong, he rarely is. Yes, trending worldwide, #Slammiversary, number one, there’s a reason for that. There is a reason ShopImpact.com, at midnight, when Slammiversary went off air is old out of good brothers shirts. Don’t worry, they’ll be restocked, soon. There’s a reason famous hoot and big hoot ran our very own PPV Talk-N-Shop A Mania, available worldwide, August 1st. Oh yeah, tuck your kiddies away for that one, it’s TV-MA. There’s a reason for all of this. And if anybody in IMPACT Wrestling doesn’t believe that, we’re right here to show you the recipe. And the recipe is a magic killer, a one-two-three, and hey, these days we don’t even need a too sweet.
Karl Anderson: No, but most importantly, let’s celebrate us being here. Talk-N-Shop beer me, please. Throw one to me, boom. Hey, I’ll catch the big man’s one, he was a center, not a tight end. There you go.
Doc Gallows: It’s not all about the skill positions, bud.
Karl Anderson: Congrats brother.
Ace Austin: Hold the tabs on those beers, it’s not time for that, just yet. What’s up new guys? Yeah, hey, how are you? I don’t think we’ve been formally introduced. I’m gonna forgive you for what happened at Slammiversary, because I know how it is. You show up, you want to make a statement, you want to look great. I get it, I do. So, I’m going to to get in this ring, i’m gonna give you guys a chance to apologize because, in case you weren’t aware, we’re the guys around here. Yeah, you came in, and you had to stand up to the two top guys. That’s what you had to do, it makes sense, I get it. But if you want to talk about best big man in the business, I want you to look at this guy, right here. No one is bigger, no one is better. So, we’ll get rid of that. You got some more beers? Why don’t we hare a beer with that apology that you owe us? How about that? No? Not apology guys, that’s cool, i’m not much of a beer guy, either.

Eddie Edwards & Eric Young Segment
Eddie Edwards: This, right here, this feels right. I can once again call myself the IMPACT World Champion. Now, leading up to Slammiversary, I talked about my journey, I talked about the path, the ups, the downs, the broken bones, the wins, the losses, the broken hearts, the broken friendships, the broken lives. That journey brought me back to this world championship. Now, that journey is now over, it’s time for a new journey to begin. Over the past couple of years here at Impact Wrestling, there’s been something missing, stability. As a champion, I have a goal, I have a goal to be a champion that boys and girls in the back can be proud of, a champion that this company can be proud of.
And most importantly, I have a duty, I have a goal to be a champion that you fans at home can be truly proud of. The only thing harder than becoming a champion, is staying a world champion. Now, the past couple of years, this championship, it’s only been defended a hand full of times. The last title defense was five months ago. But i’m here to tell you, that’s all about to change. Now, I know people have called me crazy in the past, maybe you agree, maybe you don’t, it is what it is. But I am here to tell you, as your world champion, I am going to defend this belt each and every week against anybody., anybody who feels they deserve a shot. I am going to be your fighting champion. I, Eddie Edwards, I am living proof that anything is possible, and my new journey is to bring stability and credibility to this world championship.
Eric Young: Eddie.
Eddie Edwards: EY, no, I don’t know what you think you’re dong coming out here. I don’t know what you think you deserve. After what you did to Rich Swann at Slammiverary, that’s a friend of mine, he’s in the hospital, he may never wrestle again, but he might never walk again, right. Do you know what you did? You don’t deserve anything. The only thing you deserve, EY, is a good old fashion ass kicking, and i’m happy to give that to you.
Eric Young: Look at you, look at you standing up there, proud as a peacock, telling the world who you are, what you’re going to do, and who you’re going to be. It’s pathetic, Eddie. It’s pathetic for you to think that you have any say, any sway, any power in the fate of that world title, going forward in this place, because this place now belongs to me. And you’re gonna get mad, you’re gonna get upset about what happened to Rich, I think maybe you should be thanking me, you should be thanking me that my crosshairs targeted him and not you, because it easily could have been you. It could be you in the hospital, Eddie, and not Rich. That’s what happen when you stand between me and what I deserve. Well, you stand in between me and what is right. You want to talk about right, Eddie, do you think that anything going on right here, right now has anything to do with what you think or what you believe? Your hard work, your journey, none of that matters to me. The reason we’re standing here, right now, face to face, swapping words, talking about the world title, it’s because I made it so.
