Erick Rowan makes his way to the ring.
Rowan says what you just saw was a work of art. Some people paint and some people sing, but what he does is annihilate. He says do not call him an artist, call him a creator and what he created demands respect. Erick says you like to belittle him and make up names about him. You call him a redwood tree and that means you saw him as less than human. That has changed because might makes right. It doesn’t matter where you are on the fence or what side you are on, if you can dominate, you are right. Roman Reigns and Dan know that he is right. The entire locker room knows that he is right.
