Hunter suggests that Matt had to take an Uber to get here because no one would give him a ride. Matt has never depended on friends. He is a machine in the gym and in the ring. The trick is not to be reliant on the numbers, but to have them there. If you rely on yourself then that is when it is magic. Can Cole rely on himself.
