Elias says he knows so many truths and no truth is more apparent than the truth that WWE stands for Walk With Elias.  Elias says he is on another planet than anyone else.  He was interrupted by pancakes, conga lines, and that glorious fraud Bobby Roode.  Elias mentions that they are in the home of Billy Joel so he is not surprised that you root for a talentless hack.  If Bobby Roode wants to interrupt his singing again, he will rip apart his vocal chords.  Then he will go on to win the Money in the Bank Ladder Match.

The crowd chants Rusev Day and Elias says Rusev Day has nothing on Elias.

Elias sings that Bobby thinks he's glorious but he doesn't have a clue.  He is dead inside, like all of you.  If you disagree, you are out of luck.  You can bring the Islanders back but they will still suck.

Bobby Roode interrupts.
