inside him and he will be at WrestleMania.
Kevin Owens makes his way to the ring. Owens says, “Hey yo!” What
we’re looking at right now is the happiest Canadian camper in the
world because he is going to WrestleMania! Owens said he used his
superior Canadian intellect to get on the card. Since none of the
yellow teethed Texans can turn down a challenge, he challenged the
embodiment of Texas itself. Owens knew Austin would accept. Owens is
proud of himself because now the entire world and the USA get to
witness the most stupendous KO Show of all time when he stuns Stone
Cold all throughout Texas. The only can that will be opened up in
Texas is a nice Canadian beer. Owens doesn’t even like beer, but
he’ll make an exception on that night. Nobody will be saying “Oh
hell yeah” when he’s done with him. Everyone will be saying “Oh hell
no” as they watch him beat the living hell out of Austin. Owens
says, “And that’s the bottom line because KO said so!” Owens then
hits the cameraman with a Stunner!

Video Package: Edge’s transformation heading into WrestleMania
We’ll hear from Edge next.
Edge comes out to new music. It’s “The Other Side” by Alter Bridge.
Edge says he is the benchmark and better than everyone in the
industry. Since he came back two years ago, he hasn’t shown that
aptitude. The Edge that came back intent on pleasing everyone was
weak. Edge realized the people don’t matter to him. In trying to
appease everyone, he took his eye off the prize and allowed Randy
Orton to tear his tricep off the bone. That Edge allowed Seth
Rollins to cost him the World Title and enter his house to piss on
his territory. It allowed the cosplayer Roman Reigns to stack him at
If AJ Styles was facing that Edge at WrestleMania, he’d leave that
Edge in the dust. That Edge is dead. Now he sits perched on his
Mountain of Omnipotence looking down at everyone. Edge won’t be
judged by anyone in the crowd, the locker room, or AJ Styles. A “You
suck” chant picks up. Edge will hand out the verdicts around here
and would apologize if he cared, but he doesn’t. If AJ Styles makes
it to WrestleMania with two generational talents facing each other
for the first time on the grandest stage of them all, Styles will be
judged. Edge drops the microphone and psychotically smiles.

Riddle says he has been replaying last week’s events over in his
head and can’t believe they’re going to WrestleMania. Orton says
this is his 18th WrestleMania appearance, but his first as Tag Team
Champion and the first with a partner. Orton says since Riddle threw

the titles once again. The Street Profits can’t just expect to get a
shot. They had to win a Spelling Bee. Orton thanks them for coming,
but the answer is no. Angelo Dawkins says when it comes to the
titles, they’re not bros. Ford says they’re not asking… they’re
telling them they’re wrestling them at WrestleMania.

Undertaker, Shawn Michaels, and Vince McMahon can’t tell him what to
do. Orton warns them to leave or he’ll listen to the voices in his
head and make them leave. Riddle steps between them and says The
Street Profits make a good point. They have to face somebody at
WrestleMania. Riddle says it’s the right thing to do. Orton says
they’re lucky Riddle is so cool. As far as the challenge for the
titles at WrestleMania goes, they accept.

time they come back to Jacksonville, they’ll teach them not to throw
a party that is such ass. Riddle is furious and says he shouldn’t
disrespect Orton. Riddle doesn’t want to wait until WrestleMania.
Dawkins says if Riddle wants a match with Montez, then it’s on.

three most dangerous letters in sports entertainment: RK-Bro.
