Kane says if Seth calls himself a fighting champion then he shouldn't have a problem. Seth says Kane is his problem. Kane is supposed to do what is best for business and Seth is best for business. Kane says part of his job is helping him grow as champion. Seth says Kane is just jealous because his star is on the rise and Kane is fading away.
