He is using these measures to protect himself from that mad man Seth Rollins. The last time he was in the ring, he was attacked by Seth Rollins unprovoked. Maybe it was a little provoked. For a man who is always in control, it was easy to rile Seth up. Seth is needy and emotional like all of you.

Dean asks if you have any idea what it is like to live with someone who always has to be in control and always be right. You all know someone like that. If you had any guts, you would slap that person in the mouth. You have no guts and you have weak character. Seth is the biggest scumbag and low lie but you appreciate him because he makes you feel important. Dean says he used to be proud of the Shield but then Roman and Seth cared about being role models.

Dean says he is the last man with integrity. All Dean is guilty of is trusting people and taking them at face value. Dean says that he is happy to stand in the ring by himself as the moral compass of the WWE. Dean says at TLC he could take the Intercontinental Title by force, but that would be too easy. Dean tells Seth to listen. At TLC, you will slip up and drop the ball. You will lose control of yourself, of your emotions, and the situation.

Nia says that is a shame because they were hoping that Charly was going to be Ronda’s partner tonight. Nia says that is as ridiculous as anyone being Ronda’s partner. Nia eliminated Ember at the battle royal at Evolution and Tamina has been taking care of her so they didn’t have to see her face. Tonight, they will rearrange her appearance, just like she did with Becky. Then they will isolate Ronda since Ronda shouldn’t be at 100 percent after Survivor Series or after what happened earlier tonight. She will reclaim her Raw Women’s Championship.
