I hadn’t beat, that sunset bomb of the second row of the top rope! Who was the ref on that? Right? You saw it right? What the hell was that? That’s the same referee that wrestle LumberJack match! How am I supposed to overcome the edge when referee is against me, everyone against me? We are gonna get to bottom of this. It’s not over.”
