We go to the man who regained the FCW Championship last week, Leo Kruger and he has something to say. Leo says that he hates to be the person to say I told you so, but I told you so. It took just one week to reclaim the FCW Championship. Mike Dalton beating him last week was a fluke and he does not deal with flukes. The fact is that Leo Kruger is the greatest Florida champion of all time.

They say that Dalton is FCW’s resident Rocky, the underdog story, but Kruger says that he is the true Rocky of FCW. He says that he is the walking, talking, living, breathing main event. He is also the FCW Florida Champion.
