Daniel says he wants to apologize to sheep for being compared to you idiots. They are not the ones mindlessly destroying the Earth with their actions. There is no carbon hoofprint. You are not sheep, you are more like parasites.

Daniel says he sees a lot of Mustafa in himself. Daniel says he has some advice. They don't need this match tonight. After this match, the people will not care because they are so self-absorbed and xenophobic. These fickle people do not deserve this.

Ali wants to know what happened to Daniel because he looks up to Daniel and that is why he became a wrestler. Daniel was the underdog who could hang with anyone because he has heart. What happened? You talk about the old Daniel Bryan. The old Daniel Bryan would want to fight and Mustafa says that is what he wants. He wants a fight.
