They reviewed the beating Daniel Bryan has taken over the last few weeks. Bryan was interviewed by Byron Saxton, with his shoulder taped up. He said that no matter what, he gives 100% all of the time. He doesn’t know if that will be enough to be champion.

He said that you won’t take your garbage out and the government will condemn your homes and will all be out on the streets.
JBL said, “What’s the matter with rats moving in?” Those are a different type of rats JBL was talking about.
