Damien Sandow is in the interview area with Matt Striker and Matt wants to know about the era of enlightenment as the intellectual savior to the masses. He asks Damien about why he did not wrestle last week.
Damien tells Matthew that he apologizes if his vernacular confused him last week and then Damien points that he is surprised that Matt was once an educator. The essence of his message undoubtedly flew over Matt’s head like the rare Arctic bird, the Tundra Bean Goose. These people yearn for enlightenment but who can they turn to. Who do they have to place on a pedestal so that they may bask in the glow of their own essence? The answer is no one. There are some who try to appeal to the unwashed masses, but they are nothing more than false prophets whom he will expose. He is the bright beam of enlightenment who will serve as the avenging sword of taste and decency. This concludes their interview.
