Kofi mocks Owens for his recent loss at Money In the Bank. Kofi also takes shots at Ziggler ahead of Sunday's Steel Cage match.

The Lakers traded away their Ball so he can have a play date and disappoint the entire city of Los Angeles. Seth traded away his balls for a steel chair because that is the only way he can fight his client.
