Kevin welcomes everyone. He says we are five days away from Wrestlemania and each of his opponents will try to continue their respective legacy.

Kevin says that everyone was looking forward to Kurt Angle’s match against AJ Styles, but you did not let that happen. Kevin says he sees the smirk on Randy’s face and Kevin asks if Randy is proud of what he did. Randy says he is proud. He says he saved the WWE Universe from seeing a broken down guy from beating a man who thinks he is on the top of his game. He also saved everyone from watching the match.
AJ points out that Randy has been here for almost twenty years, been in the ring with legends, and only learned one move. It might be deadly but it is only one move.
Randy says that if the move is so deadly, you only need one move. Randy says you think these indie guys have it so hard to make ends meet while they go from gymnasium and gymnasium for $50 to please dozens of people while Randy was wrestling at Wrestlemania in front of thousands of people.
AJ points out that while he was wrestling in gymnasiums, you were here in WWE, failing drug tests.
Randy says the truth is if you were as good as you think you are, you would have been in the WWE a long long long time ago. Do you think your legacy is that hard work pays off? That is not your legacy. Your legacy is the role of corporate bitch since John Cena has gone to Hollywood.
