Roman wants to know if that is the problem here. Is it because you aren’t feeling Uce-y? Roman tells Jey to stand there. Roman says this is what we are going to do. If you can’t find your Inner Uce-y, then I am going to do something you ain’t gonna like. I am going to take that honorary away and I am going to be make him a full blown Uce.

Bray Wyatt makes his way to the ring.
Bray says he could get used to that. It’s like adrenaline. Bray starts to laugh. Bray says that makes him feel invulnerable and he wants to do something wild. Bray says he wants you to see something he is very proud of. There is no mask he is hiding behind. There are no smoke and mirrors. It is just me and you. That is what I want you to get used to. This is Bray Wyatt, the real man. This is the best version of him. He says he is proud to be here and he will do some spectacular things while he is here.
Bray says the truth is that he has been out of control for a majority of his life. His emotions don’t work like other people’s. They can send him to a very dark place. Other times, he doesn’t feel anything at all. Bray says that is part of what makes him him. To get where he has gotten, he has done some horrible things. Part of him likes he doesn’t mind doing horrible things. That is not the end of it. There will come another time when he is faced with adversity and he will be forced to do something horrible.
The vision appears on the TitanTron. He says he is the ghost of the man who killed the world. You are a shell of what you once were. We know it is true that you don’t wear the mask. You cannot run from your Uncle Howdy.
We go to credits.
