Backstabbing and lack of leadership ruined that group. He is talking about the 2001 Boston Red Sox. Everyone booed him. He said when Austin stunned him last week, was like Pedro Martinez refusing to play with his so called injuries. He then talks about this Sunday and said they better not screw up.

Edge’s music hits and he comes out. Edge says he’s not Austin and he’s definitely not here to apologize. He says Kurt is a selfish ****.
