There are a lot of lows and highs on the road to this point. Seth says it feels right. He says he does not want to talk about the past, he wants to talk about the future.

Rhea says from THE Champion to just another one, he tells Seth not to get too comfortable with that title because it is inevitable that one of them will take the title from him. Finn says it could be Priest and Priest says it could be Finn. Rhea says it could be his Dom Dom. AJ and Seth laugh at that idea. Dom tells AJ that he beat him.
