He said Vince is one of the greatest men that has ever lived. He said when Reigns hit him, it was like disgracing the American Flag and defacing Mount Rushmore. He said he needs repercussions and questioned what he would to do Reigns. He said they will settle it in the ring, and called Reigns out. He said it was an order because he works for him.
