I know you don’t believe me and I know why.  I am being honest saying that you are barking up the wrong tree.  I haven’t touched you and deep down inside, we know how this story ends, don’t we?

Bray says he has decided since we know how it ends, I will give you one more chance to deliver your message, but it better be good and worth my while.

John says Cena Claus is coming to town.
