Two weeks ago, you told me I didn't have a passion for the business and that I was handed everything and did it for the paycheck. You said I was complacent. You are right.

You can't stand that in twenty years I have phoned it in and half assed it and I have accomplished more than anyone in the locker room. You scratched and clawed and pretended to be the heroes from your childhood. I just had to come in and lace up my boots to prove I am the best. At Backlash, I will prove that I am better than you. I set the bait and you bit. Now your storybook ending will be rewritten by the three most destructive letters in sports entertainment. RKO!
