Bobby Lashley and MVP interrupt and Porter says the time for talking is done. This is Wrestlemania and this is the crowning moment of the All Mighty Era. Words cannot convey what is going through Bobby’s head right now. The only language Bobby can use now is the language of violence. The title changes you and makes you a different person.

They wrestled in front of 23 people and in front of thousands of people. I can go on and on. We have done this hundreds of times. Through those 20 years, no two people were looked down and talked down to by industry experts than them. Tomorrow night they get to do it one on one at Wrestlemania. It has never been this big and it has never been this important. The Sami Zayn you see is not the Sami Zayn he has known. In the end, no matter what people say or the obstacles they had to get through, it is Wrestlemania and Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn. He will stun some sense into Sami and if Logan Paul wants to get involved, he will be there.

You have to prepare for this. I am getting in the ring with Sasha Banks. Sasha calls herself the best and Bianca says she does not run from competition. I will lay it all out there. The best thing is the fans and they are back. This is more than about me or Sasha, it is about the fans.
— Kevin Patrick is with Seth Rollins. Seth calls Kevin “Mike” and welcomes him to his first Wrestlemania. He says he is excited for the chaos. Kevin asks about Cesaro. Seth tells “Mike” they don’t have to go there and you have to bring up Cesaro and the swing and the disrespect. Seth says he wanted to address that for a while. Week after week, Seth says he has been disrespected and he does not know why. Maybe he is using Seth’s superstardom to springboard him to the next level. When the storms clear, the sun will shine bright and the stars will shine down and Seth will be the new Mr. Wrestlemania when he trounces Cesaro.
— Sarah is with Miz and John Morrison. Morrison says they don’t need luck because they have skill. You can tell a lot about a man by who you hang out with and that is why you are scumbags.
