We are back and we see the cage that will be used for the Asylum Match on Sunday above the ring.

Chris Jericho makes his way to the ring and we see why we have the Asylum Match on Sunday.

Chris wants quiet and then he says the Asylum is above him and it one of the most barbaric creations in WWE history.  It was created by Dean Ambrose himself.  Unfortunately Ambrose thinks he might have him where he wants him but he does not.  It is quite the opposite.  He has been in every type of match the WWE has created.  He has been in them all.  He has never been in an Asylum match because there has never been one.  Since Ambrose has not been in one either, that gives him the upper hand because he is smarter than Dean.

Chris says he is crazier than Dean.  They call Dean the Lunatic Fringe, but Chris says he is a lunatic.  Do you remember what happened last week when he beat up Dean Ambrose with a smile on his face and not a tear in his eye.

The week before that, he hit Dean in the back of the head with a potted plant and put Dean in the hospital for a day.  Imagine how long he can put Dean in the hospital with all of these accoutrements. 

Dean says the pot will put him in the hospital for a day.  A straitjacket would be two days.  A kendo stick across the face would be two or three days.  The fire extinguisher is dangerous.  A barbed wire board is about ten days.  The mop and bucket.  When he rams that mop down Dean’s throat and he is in the ICU for a week, that is not funny.

Chris does the math and he says that will be forty days that Ambrose will be in the hospital due to his creation.

The cage has been lowered and there is a worker in the cage.  Chris says the forty days in the hospital will cost more than $15,000.  He will also give Dean lacerations and contusions.  There will be anguish and physical pain.  He will give Ambrose the Gift of Jericho.  He tells Dean to drink it in.

The ring worker takes off his fake beard and hat and it is Dean Ambrose.   Dean punches Ambrose and sends him into the cage a few times.  Dean climbs up the cage and he grabs the kendo stick.  Dean hits Chris in the back with the kendo stick.  Jericho gets out of the cage through the door and runs away.

Bob tells Mr. Young when you believe you can do something, you can do it. 
Darren is writing it down and Bob tells Darren that he needs to learn what he is teaching him.  He says that notes are for kids in school while adults put it in their brains.  He tells Darren to recite the presidents in order.  Darren says that he can’t do that and he does not think anyone can do it.  Bob starts to recite the presidents and Darren says “Damn” at what he was doing.  Bob says that you cannot be great using language like that.  Bob tells Darren to give him 100 jumping jacks.  Darren says something and Bob makes it 200.
