He will keep coming out and he will keep getting beaten up but he will take one of you idiots out with him. When the consequences of their actions impact people in the back he respects, like Rey Mysterio. There are not many people he respect as much as Rey.

Seth says this is his sacrifice. He is sacrificing himself for the greater good to take this industry into the next decade. You have left him no choice but to impose his will.
