they did this before, and Cody is the best. Seth asked Cody
if he was going to face him at WrestleMania. Before Cody
could answer, Drew McIntyre comes out and interrupts.

Drew said he took out Punk and started telling Cody he
needed to finish the story, Seth stops Drew and said what
makes you think if it isn’t Cody and I at WrestleMania it’s
going to be me and you because we have done this a few times
and you lost. Drew reminded Seth that he had lost 3 times to
Cody.

Cody tried to interrupt, and Drew told him to hold on and
continued by saying no one wants to face Roman because they
already knew the end of the match, his family is going to
interfere. Drew then tells Seth its time to let someone else
run with the title so he can rest his injuries and that is
him and hits Seth with a Glasgow Kiss headbutt. Cody then
sends Drew out of the ring with after a few shots to the
head.
