Eric grabs a mic and says the belt represents a lifetime of hard work. The crowd chants, "You deserve it." EY says everything in his life led him to this moment to be champion. He won the championship for him but he will be a champion for us. This is a way to pay the fans back. This is 10 years of unsolicited support from the fans. Time of a paper champion is over.

EY says he is going to do what he does with crap and that is to flush it. Dixie says she is trying to be a professional but EY is pandering to the fans. EY says he is his own man - He always has been and always will. If she wants a paper champion she better not look at him. Eric doesn't want her insulting him or his friends so he is going to run over her with the champion. Dixie states she is going to make him relevant by giving him a makeover. If he doesn't apply then she will start with his girl beer drinker in the back.
