Drew McIntyre is asked about his match with Cedric Alexander.  Drew says to talk about a next chapter means this will go past tonight but this ends tonight.  From buddying up with Roman Reigns and jumping off the TitanTron is a fairy tale in his head that he thinks will end with a victory over Drew McIntyre in Toronto.  What will really happen is that he will take his boot and cave in Drew's skull.
