JR: Now what the hell is this? What do they want?

King: C’mon! How can they interrupt the Great One?

Hassan: Of course, this company is no different from the rest! Still, loving those who are great and charismatic and crap, but are still disrespecting and discriminating me! I think that—

Rock: Wait a second… who in the blue hell are you!?

Hassan: Who am I? You wanna know?

Rock: Yeah, c’mon boy.

Hassan: I am Mo—

Rock: It doesn’t matter who you are!

Crowd cheers as Mohammed and Davarai are going crazy on the stage.

Hassan: Ha, you got me… it’s all a big joke, that’s all it is nowadays isn’t it?

Rock: Wait… so now you’re making fun of the Rock? You’re saying I’m all jokes? Why don’t you come down to this ring and see what the joke is!
