Back from commercial, we go to a video from Antonio Cesaro and Zeb Colter. Zeb says that they have reason to believe that Sami Zayn is in the US illegally. We ran a background check on you and it shows nothing, which means that Sami Zayn that you trying to portray does not exist. You had to come from somewhere and we are gonna find that out. Early on, we did find out you used to wear a mask, people who wear masks are from south of the border so they can sneak into our country under the guide of darkness and to take job from us Americans. Mr. Zayn, you have serious questions that need to be asked and some serious answers need to be given. If our hunches prove correct and since you tried to make Cesaro’s life a nightmare, we will make your life a nightmare too. The end result is, if you are illegal, we will have you deported.
Cesaro says he just won’t make Sami’s life a nightmare inside the ring, but outside the ring also. The best part is I will take joy in doing so. Don’t mess with Cesaro, WE THE PEOPLE!
