Brock says with all due respect, it is an honor to be in the ring with me. Brock apologizes because for the last 20 years he has been winning championships in this ring and other rings. That doesn’t fall on me. That falls on you. I don’t have a clue who you are until I met you at Day 1. It is your fault you didn’t climb into the same level of success as me. If we had already met, I would have already beaten you and we wouldn’t be here. With all due respect.
