For the last three months, he has been sitting at the announce table because he had a broken eye hole. He remembered that if you want to earn respect, you find the toughest guy in the room and you punch him in the face. It became clear that the toughest man in the room is Neville.

Neville says he would come to the ring but you have not earned the right to enter the ring with him. Neville says he does not have to lift a finger to get rid of Aries. You have so many enemies in the back. You mocked the division and now you think you belong at the top of the ladder. There is a locker room of talent more than willing to oblige.
