He thought he was immortal, so I called Mads Krugger here to the mountains of Russia to get ready for his next mission, the end of Alex Hammerstone. And just like Injustice will meet their demise, the black flag of CONTRA will rise over MLW once again. All of your championship gold will be mine. HAIL, CONTRA !!!!
