Jonah, who pulled off a convincing and career-defining win against Kazuchika Okada on night 13 of the G1 Climax tournament, was on the losing end tonight.

Lance Archer, who towered over him, dared Jonah to trade forearm smashes with him in the middle of the ring during the start of their match.

“You want to do this? You want to do something other than all this flipping and flopping crazy s–t?” asked Archer.

“Let’s fight!” growled Jonah.

“Then, f—–g hit me!” Archer dared.
