Seth says he hears the fans’ concerns, but he wants them to hear him out. Seth says at the press conference he said he was the guy and that is not the case and Roman Reigns isn’t even the guy…but Seth is the guy.

Seth then tells Cody that he was there with him while defending the World title and the whole reason this title came to be is because the fans were tired of Roman Reigns barely showing up and always cheating to win. This is our title. He then called the Universal title the fraud title, “the Hogan title” and asked Cody if he wanted that title or the “Dusty Rhodes title” the blue-collar title the workhorse title.
