Every time he closes his eyes, he can feel you. He can hear you calling out to him. Unfortunately, for most of us, we never have to see the horrible things that go on in the world.
Most only see it from the confines of our homes while eating a bowl of cereal and watching the news. Evil is a very real thing. We live inside this bubble nowadays. Inside this bubble we desire to feel safe and secure. Nothing can hurt us if we are inside this bubble. We have become prisoners of our society. That is what THEY want from us.
As soon as we raise an eyebrow, they send in someone like John Cena. They send him in to be our ray of hope to make us feel like everything is going to be alright. This isn’t a prison, this is our home.

He tells John not to let his crown get dirty.
Bray says that his brothers are going to show The Usos that the bond of cause cannot be broken. You cannot tame a beast that cannot fear. Tonight, they will learn the fact that there is something worse than dying.
When your cities burned, he was there. When the plague swept your street, he was there. When John Cena falls and the CeNation crumbles, he will be standing. He is forever. He will always be and he will always be. Bray starts to speak in tongues.
Bray starts to sing and the crowd follows along.
