Once both men are in the ring, Stone Cold does shake both of their hands, says its about time to get this contract signed. Seth mentions to Austin, that Braun thought that Austin had it in for him tonight. Seth makes it clear no one has it out for Braun, but he is the best wrestler on the planet and will be walking out of Clash of Champions with the Universal title.
Braun gets a chance to talk. Says he has the utmost respect for Austin, but a rattlesnake still a rattlesnake. Tells Seth he likes being tag champs and he has nothing to worry there, but he’s going to love being the Universal Champion.
While the contract did get signed, AJ Styles and the OC interrupt. AJ says he doesn’t want to get Stone Cold all riled up, then does his best Stone Cold impersonation. AJ can’t believe people still like that as the crowd just shouts what at him. Of course AJ mentions that the RAW tag team champions didn’t even give the OC a rematch.
AJ then calls Stone Cold some names, while trying to get his point of being mad about Braun’s title shot across. Austin says he doesn’t know where he is coming from, but knows where he is going. Braun and Seth then jump the OC and AJ. AJ out smarts Seth, but forgets about one important person. Stone Cold gives him the middle fingers, and for the first time in 20 years, drops a Stunner in MSG.
