Kevin says he is in a great and festive mood tonight. I had a great Christmas at home with my family. I got to main event in Madison Square Garden and I won my match. In five days, the world will rejoice when I become WWE Champion at Day One. I am the only one of the four here tonight. That makes me smarter than Seth Rollins, tougher than Big E, and a lot stronger than Bobby Lashley. I can’t blame them for not showing up and coming to a dump like Detroit. I thought it was important to make an example. At Day One, you will get a champion you deserve. The odds will be tough because of who is in the match.
Last week, Seth Rollins stomped Bobby Lashley’s head into the steps. That helps me because Bobby is going after Seth. Big E got speared by Bobby Lashley. If Big E shows up, he will be going after Lashley and MVP. He is of one mind, heart, and soul with Seth Rollins. I put the perfect plan together. That will make me your WWE Champion.
Montel Vontavious Porter says that Kevin cannot be more wrong about his Day One predictions. He will give Kevin credit for his plan. You have gotten them off your scent. if you think Bobby forgot about you and the power bomb on the apron, you are mistaken. It will tkae more than a stomp on steel steps or a power bomb on the apron to take him out. Bobby will be at Day One to wreak havoc on Seth Rollins. Bobby told him taht he will rip the wet noodle arms of Kevin’s extomorphic body. It does not matter who it is, but someone will be in the Hurt Lock because we are back in the All Mighty Era.

Kevin says as terrifying as that text message is, he is confident in his odds at Day One.

Porter says Lashley doesn’t need anyone. If you want to talk some business, I will give you an opportunity.
Kevin cuts them off. If Shelton and Cedric want to reform the Hurt Business. Cedric thinks if he beats Kevin they will reform the Hurt Business. Come to the ring and we can do it.

Damian Priest says everyone has a dark side. He says he does his best to keep it at bay. He did enjoy planting Roode’s head into the floor even if it cost me the match. I will not be disrespected. My rage could hurt me against someone like Dolph Ziggler. He is calculating and at any moment, he can steal the show. If I lose control, he will take advantage.
