Cut to a pre-taped vignette/interview from Kamille. She speaks for the first time. "When I was a kid I just wanted to have fun. I wasn't striving to be great...I just was, but then I learned something the hard way...people don't like you when your gifted. In fact...they turn against you. " Kamille shares a story about being a dominant softball player, to the point where opposing team's parents would complain about her dominance. "Ever since I was little...I was hated...HATED...for my power and my strength. So respect for authority, respect for anyone...I don't have that. Any single sport I've ever played or ever tried I've dominated at." Highlights of Kamille competing in all these sports are spliced throughout. Kamille recalls when Nick Aldis called her up as an insurance policy during the Cody Rhodes NWA championship rematch. She says that she's been the common denominator in Aldis' success. "I don't need to speak... i let my actions speak for me." Kamille turns her attention to the women's division, calling out current champion Thunder Rosa specifically. "I'm here to end all of you."
