On Sunday, he will finish humiliating Roman at TLC. Baron says he will use everything at his disposal. He will use tables, ladders, and chairs to make Roman bow down to his king. Smackdown will be his to rule as the sole leader.
Baron says he has seen the promos on Fox and the nonsense on Twitter that Roman is coming ‘Unchained’. Baron asks Dolph if he knows what happens when you let a dog free from its chain.

Instead, he picked himself up and he kept marching forward. We stand before you as seven time WWE World Tag Team Champions. Kofi says that Baron is looking stupid with that crown and scepter. If you were a true king, you would hold yourself with dignity and class, things you cannot do. Kofi says what you did to Roman Reigns was straight up disrespectful and he does not like it.
