"Well...here we are. Going into Tuscaloosa with two losses. I've lost my Sledgehammer, Mr. Socko's gone somewhere in the dryer, and all I can do is think about how Alabama is gonna kick my ass. First there was that night in New Orleans, and ya know, that could've turned out better. So much was on the line. It was like I only had my legs...well I kinda did. I'll never forget that beating.
"Then there was last year in Tiger Stadium and, oh man, I just fought so hard for the belt there. I came so close to being the king. I felt like I was at the top of the world, but when I woke up all I saw was Mike Slive's face and all I could taste was my own blood. Oh man you know I gave it my all, and all I had to show for it was my battered, mangled, scarred body.
"Part of me doesn't even want to go to Tuscaloosa, man. I've got no shot at a title. Man, why even fight? At this point I'll have to settle for a trip to Dallas. Hell, maybe I should just tuck tail and go to Shreveport, man."
[door flies open]
"No, Mankind, no! You have SO MUCH to play for on Saturday!"
"Vince? What are you doing here? Man I don't even know anymore, maybe I should just let T.J. Yeldon run across my face, because that's what the people want to see. The defense to rip me to shreds. To see me bleed. They want to see the Process at work, and they want to see it at work on me. And I just want to feel the pain."
"That's not true at all, Mankind. And you know it. You've got the opportunity of a lifetime in Bryant-Denny Stadium this Saturday. You could be the one to end the Process, to put it on its back once and for all, to end Nick Saban's title reign. All you need are a few weapons. There's got to be some around here, let me look around. Here, come look and see what I found.
"My...my friends...they've been gone for so long. Where were they?"
"I don't know, I just found them. This...this should give you everything you need to beat Alabama. It won't be easy, but dammit it's the best I can do. You've done this before. You know what it takes. You've just got to use your weapons."
"Well...ALRIGHT THEN, AMERICA. IF YOU WANT TO SEE THE PROCESS TURNED OUT ITS ASS AND BLEED ITS OWN BLOOD FOR ONCE, YOU'VE GOT IT. MANKIND IS GONNA LAY HIS BODY ON THE LINE, BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY HE'S GONNA LAY 22 OTHER BODIES ON IT TOO. I KNOW HOW TO USE THESE WEAPONS, AND I'M GOING TO HELP YOU FEEL THE PAIN AND SUFFERING THAT I LOVE TO FEEL, ALABAMA. COME SATURDAY, BOTH OF US WILL BE WEARING CRIMSON, AND ONLY ONE OF US IS GOING TO BE BLEEDING. I HOPE YOU'RE READY, BECAUSE THE BRUTALITY BEGINS AND ENDS ON SATURDAY NIGHT, AND ONLY ONE OF US IS GOING TO WALK AWAY A VICTOR.
"I'M GONNA BE WEARIN' YOUR BLOOD, ALABAMA. AND I WANT TO FEEL YOUR PAIN."
