You know, I don’t think CONTRA and Mads Krugger realize that putting me on the shelf for a month might have been the stupidest thing they could do. All that means is that I’ve been able to train, non-stop for an entire month just for one match. And I think it’s become very apparent at this point that MLW doesn’t get freedom from CONTRA, they’re only going to get freedom through CONTRA, because just when I got one step closer to Jacob Fatu and that World Heavyweight Championship, they stick the monster on me. The Black Hand Of CONTRA, Mads Krugger. And you know what, I’m not the monster that you are, because I’m worse.
See, at Kings Of The Colosseum, this presents a very rare opportunity, an opportunity for me to cut loose because me and pro wrestling, it’s been like I’m walking through a world of cardboard and cheap plastic, always afraid of what I’m gonna break, subconsciously holding back, just a hair. But, you, big man, you can take it, can’t you? You can take every blow I got, and I’m gonna give it to you, but there’s one thing that you can’t take and that’s a Nightmare Pendulum. And, at Kings Of The Colosseum, I swear to you, I’m gonna put you down with that very move. And don’t get it twisted, I’m not gonna lose the diamond, chasing the glare, because that’s what you are, Mads Krugger, just an obstacle, standing in my way between Jacob Fatu, standing in my way between that MLW Worlds Heavyweight Championship. So, Kings Of The Colosseum, we’re gonna do it. You want me to put my title on the line, that’s just fine, because I’m looking past you to the World Heavyweight Championship.

It can’t be possible that MLW gives opportunities to other people, like those fat pigs. What are they called? MLW remember I’ve been here since 2002, the day this company started. It’s 2020 we need our opportunities. We need a title shot. If not, plain truth, I will retire. We’ll leave. Bye, bye. Those pigs (The Dirty Blondes) just returned and you gave them a shot before me and my masculine and successful sons? We have a right for an opportunity or it is over.
