Anderson says the crowd is lively tonight and mocked Carter for being boring last week. He wants to kick his ass, and then Carter makes his way out to the ring with Tyrus.

Anderson says he knows Carter wants the title, and he needs to win it.
Carter says he leaves people bloodied and he collects scalps while defeating all Hall of Famers. He is undefeated and unbeatable. Carter says his undefeated streak is the most important thing to him, and Anderson reveals a “beat the streak” sign. This does not amuse Carter, and Carter promises to make Anderson a footnote in his record-breaking streak.
