Over the years, you have provided me an environment to be my true self.  You have told me when I sucked, and when I did not.  I have always wanted to say thank you.  I guess I have been waiting for the right moment and this feels like that right moment.  John says his heart is beating out of his chest and he thanks everyone for moments like this and for making him who he is.  I always say that WWE has prepared me for anything.  I am not talking about Fast and Furious or Peacemaker, I am talking about because of you and your reactions and investment in me, you have made me a better human being.  Because of you, I am a better professional.  I am a better husband and a better person.  Being in the WWE and spending moments with the families I have been with today, you have taught me empathy and kindness.

Every time you step in the ring, you never give less than everything you have.  You shower us with everything you’ve got when you come to the shows.  This isn’t about a last name or people coming together.  Cena mentions he is 45 years old and he says he does not know the next time you will see me in the ring.  I need to say this now.  Cena says it won’t just be one more match.  Anything I do outside of this is not just me.  It is not about him when you chant this name.  John says you have made him who he is.  If you see something good, say something.  If you see something that sucks, say something.  It is not about him, it is about us.

John says that is the sound of us.  We are just getting started.

We are back with Cody Rhodes at his physical therapy earlier today.  He says rehab is a game of highs and lows.  It pales in comparison to where he was three weeks ago when he won at Hell in a Cell.  Cody says he would have loved to take that into Hell in a Cell.  Cody says he has been told nine months to return.  It is bittersweet to watch Money in the Bank because of the talent in the match.  You have Drew McIntyre and SHeamus who he compares to Harley Race.  Omos is so big he does not need the ladder.  He says Sami Zayn tricks people into forgetting he has a genius IQ in the ring.  Then you have Seth Rollins, the man with the greatest cash in.  What if history repeats itself?  If Seth were to cash in to become the Undisputed Champion.  That would be something.  I am not rooting for anyone, but if Seth wins, I will be the first to congratulate him.

Omos shows up and Seth turns into his chest.  MVP says he is a visionary too and he sees Omos iin the center fo the ring around shattered ladders and broken bodies.  It is inevitable and no one can stop him.
