explain how he always tried to be a WWE Superstar, only to have the door shut in his face, and had to pay big money just for a tryout, and ended up with a developmental contract. He wonders if it was because he wasn't big, or a freak, or wore a mask, or had a mohawk. He made a vow to do whatever it took to get to the WWE, why he became a referee, and he knew he had a chance to make an impact when AJ hired him. He knows what he did wasn't right, and Punk honestly had no idea what Maddox had done. Brad just wanted to be somebody, and now he is somebody. Everyone knows his name, even here in England. He demands a contract and a match with Ryback, because no one will forget his name now. Vince's music hits, and Maddox is in BIG trouble now.
- Vince says there's a difference between being famous and having a death wish. He actually will give Maddox a million-dollar contract if he can beat Ryback, but tells him to get out of his ring. Vince brings out Vickie, and badgers her about the Survivor Series match with Punk hiding behind four other man and "convinces" her that Ryback deserves a rematch...and in the her infinite "fairness", inserts John Cena to make it a triple threat WWE Championship match. Well, that just about mucks the PPV up, don't it?
