It’s Saturday and you know what that means!
Excalibur and Tony Schiavone were the broadcast team for the Buy-In portion of the card.
Tony Schiavone was in the ring to interview Minneapolis’ own Dante Martin!
Schiavone asked about the offer Dante received from Team Taz last night.
“I’ve had just under 24 hours—,” said Dante, before The Acclaimed interrupted him.
Max Caster said Dante should join The Acclaimed.
Anthony Bowens: “Dante, you have a lot on your mind with people asking you to align yourself with them. You’ve got Matt Sydal. Or Lio Rush. Or Team Taz. But Max and I think that you should join The Acclaimed. We’d be the hottest team in professional wrestling.
“So you’re either with us or against us. What’s it going to be? You either give us the answer we want or we’ll break your legs and send you home crying like your brother.”
Dante Martin gave The Acclaimed his answer when he took flight like a rocket ship and launched himself over the top rope, crashlanding onto The Acclaimed!
