::A ďChristian CageĒ chant breaks out::
Jarrett: Christian, you have no business out here. This is between Monty and Myself.
Christian: Well you see Jeff, I do have business out here because Iím supposed to face Monty Brown tonight and all your talking is cutting my match time short and thereís only one thing that Christian Cage hates more than a feud with the World Champion that gets cut short due to some stupid draft, and thatís a short match.
