Dolph Ziggler comes out and says last week he showed these elaborate entrances are done by wannabe supposed superstars who couldn't lace his boots. Simpy put he's the greatest in-ring performer in the WWE. But the fans only associate an elaborate entrance with being a star so fine. He goes to the back and comes out dressed as Bayley
The sad reality is at some point that bell has to ring and the performer has to be actually be able to compete and the biggest waste of all, a superstar who can't hold a candle to his ability yet everyone idolized him. He goes to back yet again and we get the Ultimate Ziggler....why?
So this is what it's come to. Tassles, facepaint, sprinting to the ring running like an idiot and this is what the fans think make a star. Anyone can do what Ziggler just did but no one can do what he does inside the ring. And each and every fan couldn't care less well Ziggler couldn't care less about the fans. He then throws the mic and exits the ring

Kevin Owens says this is a first for him getting to stand in the ring with the Chairman and CEO of WWE. Now he gets to feel what every WWE superstar before him has felt. Vince is intimidated
Vince says more like nauseated. Last week, he disparages the McMahon name and makes derogatory comments and Shane got in his face and then someone told him Owens didn't fight back because he respects authority. Vince says Owens didn't fight back because Shane was kicking his ass. Vince says he's not going to fight back he's just going to sue everyone all because he wants that power
Vince then gives a hint of what will happen if he files that lawsuit. If Owens does file that lawsuit, the moment he does Vince will be on the phone with Owens' attorneys and the words he'll hear are 'Kevin Owens, YOU'RE FIRED'. There's a 'B' associated with him ans that B stands for Billionaire and by the time that lawsuit hits the courtroom the B next to Owens' name will stand for bankrupt

Vince says he's going to re-instate Shane and he's going to get to do everything Vince just described because there's going to be a match and that match will be Shane McMahon vs Kevin Owens inside Hell In A Cell.
Owens agrees but he needs Vince to promise he won't get fired after he beats Shane senseless. He needs Vince's word if he is provoked he can beat a McMahon senseless.
