This brings out Bully Ray. Ray says to shut up, and agrees with them. Angle would have been a great choice, but this is not a wrestling match, it is a fight. If you want to do a match, you pick the greatest wrestler, Kurt Angle. But if it is a fight, you pick the baddest MOTHER TRUCKER in the company.
