Night in and Night out, we come in here and give our bodies, you see the boys, were kind of a fraternity, we've got to govern ourselves. The office, they're all about business. Because QUITE FRANKLY, the office doesn't give a shit about us. We've got not benefits, no medical, no dental, no social security, no retirement. He'll guarantee us one thing, the office can find a way to screw a boy to make a dollar, one of the boys are gonna get screwed. Bill Goldberg, I don't give a damn about you, but what happened to you last night at Starrcade, was BULLSHIT. See in this fraternity, if we don't watch out for ourselves, it's all over guys. The office, those bloodsucking, they'll take and take and take guys, and we'll have nothin left and they'll throw us to the curb. And that leaves me to you Bret Hart. Last night you broke that code, you screwed one of the boys, through the office you found a way for personal gain and you screwed one of the boys.
