We are back and Elias is in the ring.

Elias says we live in an insane world and last week, he was slapped by an insane girl.  Elias wants to know who wants to walk with Elias.  

Elias says he strongly dislikes women who hit men.  That is exactly what Trish Stratus did to him last week.  She interrupted him and then she embarrassed herself.  

Elias says he had different thoughts as he came into Columbus.  He says if Columbus knew that his name would be associated with this city, he would have turned around and gone back to Europe.  Elias asks what is a Buckeye.  It's not like a Wovlerine that they have in Michigan.

Mike Rome provides an update on Twitter about what happened with The Shield.

Baron Corbin yells at a production assistant.  He wants his watch to shine and sparkle so he tells him to do it.
