Smooth gets in the ring with a mic after the match and tells Corey he should never put his hands on him. He says Corey is just a boy, and he is a man. This will be a cake walk and Corey should just lay down now so he can get this over with. Corey takes the mic and says in his 4 years, he has always been underestimated. There have always been opponents bigger, stronger, and more experienced, but he has proven them wrong. He plans to kick Smooth's teeth down his throat and prove Smooth wrong just like everyone else.
