Like a normal man would do, he found out about these video games and they are pretty cool. I started to think, why wrestle if I can play video games. He found this place called GameStop. He opened the door and the lights hit a little different. If there is anything that Cameron Grimes could do is put his money into GameStop. He was in the right place at the right time. It went parabolic. In layman’s terms, it went TO THE MOON. Now I have so much money and he didn’t know what to do. He says there is this thing called DogCoin. He never trusted Kitty Cats.

Now I am so rich. Cameron says he pulled up in a rocket ship. He wants everyone to give it up for Cameron Grimes, the richest man in NXT. I am so rich there ain’t anyone who can tell me anything.
