Adam Cole was at ringside with crutches. Following the match, four devil’s masked gang members came out and began to attack MJF while they held Cole back. The lights went out, then were turned back on. Cole was seated in a chair, looking at MJF. The men disguised as masked were identified as Roderick Strong Wardlow, Matt Taven as well as Mike Bennett.

When he was during an interview on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer said that Joe was always a target to take home the title.

“Just quickly, Joe was always going to win, even before Max was hurt. Joe had always been going to take his title in this competition. In other words in that way the title didn’t change hands because of MJF’sinjured. That’s always the idea. Then, when it comes to what happens in the future, my gut reaction from all the evidence that they’re likely to head towards Joe or Swerve [StricklandDon’t you think?” Meltzer stated.If you make use of any of the quotations from this article, you must give credit to wrestle-news.com
