A mariachi band is in the ring. Brock Lesnar comes out in a sombrerro and dances. Lesnar gets in th ring and continues dancing before cutting off the band. He says he owes the fans and Eddie Gurerro and explanation. On Sunday at No Way Out, Eddie will have nothing to celebrate, so they may as well celebrate now. He counts the band into playing again with Spanish. Eddie charges the ring and Lesnar bails. Lesnar tries to climb back in but Eddie shoves a mic stand at him. Brock tells him to relax and climbs back in the ring. He wanted to throw him a celebration and paid a lot of money to bring the band in. He knows he's a fighting man, always fighting the odds. Even now, with his partner out, he continues to fight. The crowd chants for him and Brock encourages them. Then he reminds "the addict" that come Sunday,Eddie's not fighting the odds, he's fighting Brock Lesnar. Lesnar is going to torture him. While he was on drugs, Lesnar was winning NCAA championships. When he was in recovery, he was winning the WWE title. He hates guys like Guerrero, who run around complaning about things. Sunday, he's going to give him his "fix."

Eddie tells him if he wants to go down the road of addicition, let's get into it. He ackowledges he's an addist. Three years ago in Minneapolis, in the shower in the locker room, he was high. He doesn't remember much except being carried out of the arena into rehab. That was only the beginning. He lost his job, his wife, his kids and himself. He lost his spirit. he disgraced his race, family and himself. He came to a do-or-die point where he had to make a decision. Day by day, he has earned his way back into this ring. He has earned the repsect of his kids. He has earned his life back. The belt around Brock's waist symbolizes his way of telling his family he's sorry and that he's going to provide a better way of life for them. The belt is his new addiction. He's addicted to the high of the crowd and from telling his family he's doing it. He gets high from the satisfaction of telling everyone who didn't believe in him they can stick it up their's. He sayd he's an addict and will do anything to get that belt.

He can have any woman he wants. Because he's a gentleman, he'll let her out of the match if she packs up her crap and gets out of his home. She'll have to leave behind everything he bought her, though, especially the mink coat. Nidya comes out in a pick-up truck with a trailer.
