Bobby Fish comes out and says he will spell it out for the morons. He is a real champion. Adam Cole is a real champion. Jay’s championship is fake. The fact that Jay parades around with that thing is reprehensible and disappointing. He is insulted. He speaks for Adam Cole and says that as a real champion, Adam will not tarnish his legacy and involve himself with that thing. It is a title that exists merely in the mind of the man who made it in his basement at his farm in Sandy Fork, Delaware.
