Renee Paquette was backstage with Chris Jericho!

Jericho: “Takeshita has been on a roll lately. He’s one of
the best pro wrestlers in the world today. But you’re facing
one of the best pro wrestlers in the history of the
business. Takeshita, this Sunday, in Tokyo, I am going to
get my revenge on you. I’m going to teach you a lesson at
DDT in Tokyo. You’re facing Chris Jericho. I’ve done it all.
And Takeshita, as good as you are, I am better. And I’m
going to show you what it’s like to be in the ring with an
angry and pissed off Chris Jericho. This Sunday in Tokyo,
Japan, Takeshita, I am going to get my revenge on you!”

Nana: “Lexi, I’m doing my due diligence. When you dig deep
into your pockets, Don, what happens?”

Callis: “Sammy is on the shelf. Jericho is going to get

Prince Nana to rent the services of “the Machine” Brian Cage
to team up with my family this Wednesday in the Man Who
Erased His Name Street Fight!
