THAT MATCH WAS f--kING SICK!!!
So Cal Val is ringside with the contract and a mic. Aries asks if anyone is surprised. He says he's said it once, and he'll say it again, he's the greatest man that ever lived.
Abyss is shown backstage reading 'The Art of War'. He says Kendrick thinks tonight will be a moral victory for the X Division and he might be right, but tonight Abyss will teach him a lesson in pain and humiliation. He says no nation has ever benefitted from prolonged warfare. He says when the end is near and it's time for Kendrick to die, he'll make it quick. But not too quick.
