Episode #21 (September 4, 2020):
Match #1: Andrade w/ Vega vs. The Miz - #1 Contenders Tournament for the Intercontinental Championship Quarterfinal Match
RESULTS: ANDRADE WINS
Segment: After the previous match, Zelina Vega grabs the mic and says "well, well, well. congrats to the great Andrade on advancing towards becoming the new #1 Contender for the Intercontinental. And guess what Andrade, you will have a semi-final match next week, but against who. Cause last I checked, it's nobody. Not that pipsqueak Shorty G because I'm pretty sure he's injured for months. Vega continues saying that since Shorty G is injured, that means that my client Andrade gets a BYE straight the finals. Cue maniacal laugh that gets cut off Daniel Bryan's music. Bryan makes his way to the ring and says that Vega is right. Due to injury, his pupil Chad Gable is unable to compete in this tournament. And as his coach, I feel somewhat responsible. I told Gable that I would not be present at his match last week, and what happens? He gets hurt. But that's the thing about that match last week. Chad Gable got injured last week, and he still won the match. He still defeated your friend John Morrison. Not even with one hand tied behind his back but a full arm just was gone. He's just that good Andrade. And you know, who's to say that your friend John Morrison didn't purposefully injure Gable so that you can get a bye next week. I don't know, I'm not Detective Truth. But there's one thing I do know Zelina. You're client Andrade does not have a bye next week. Next week, Andrade will have his Semi-Finals Match against me!
