Roman reminds Baron he didn’t. He gave Baron a Superman punch and spear and you were eliminated. You can try to get the job done tonight in the ring in Birmingham.
Baron says Roman doesn’t have him fooled like the fans. You are an egomaniac who is a step behind. Baron says with this lack of respect, he will tell you what Thanksgiving was like for a King. He had the finest turkey and wine with servants serving him. Baron says he expected that Roman’s wife burned your turkey but you couldn’t tell. Baron says he is thankful he doesn’t have to put on a fake smile and live in this part of the country where the foot is worse than the football.
You want a fight? Why not fight someone else who was victorious on Sunday? Robert Roode. Baron says he thinks Roman will be taken out of the building on a stretcher and it will be GLORIOUS.

A person with style and class. A woman who wouldn’t tap out under pressure.

It will be an Open Challenge.
Big E says the question is Who will accept the challenge?
Sami Zayn comes out with Shinsuke Nakamura and Cesaro.
Sami says what makes him sick to his stomach is the two of you romanticizing a holiday like Thanksgiving. A holiday that celebrates imperialistic evil. You praise the virtue of Black Friday deals, the most fraudulent corporate holiday that promotes rampant consumerism. People who would step over family members to have a few dollars in their pocket.

In the middle of the match, Daniel says he felt changed. Daniel was not changed because of the Fiend, but because of you. That showed him who he had to be the whole time.

Daniel joins in with the crowd and Yeses.
