I will not yield,
To kiss the ground before young Malcolm's feet,
And to be baited with the rabble's curse.
Though Birnam wood be come to Dunsinane,
And thou opposed, being of no woman born,
Yet I will try the last. Before my body
I throw my warlike shield. Lay on, Macduff,
And damn'd be him that first cries, 'Hold, enough!'
— Macbeth, Act V, Scene 8
Jen: And you're under arrest, Ransik! You've got no-one left to fight for you.
Ransik: I don't NEED anyone else! I'll destroy you myself!
Conner: So that's it, then? It can't just be over.
Mesogog: OF COURSE IT'S NOT OVER!
Forgive me for being late to your celebration, Cruger!

"I've often said that I'm the smartest man in the room. And part of being the smartest man in the room is knowing what to say, so that I could intimidate or infuriate my opponent, so that when was the time was right I could manipulate a situation to my best benefit. But as we go to All Star Extravaganza, as we prepare for a ladder war, I realize that the best way to get my point across is to tell the truth. Now in pro wrestling terms, twenty three years can seem like an eternity. I look around at a lot of the people that started after me and have already retired. And I'm still here. And my thoughts turn to the end. Like is the end close by? Can I see the end from where I'm at? Is it close enough to touch? And I know all the cliches. That everything has its season, that all good things must come to an end, that nothing lasts forever. And I know the cliche about an athlete dying two deaths. And I realize that my first death is a knock on my door that I can expect at any time. And more important than that, I understand that there will come a time where I have my last championship match. That I'll hand this belt to a referee and I won't get it back. So I ask you to imagine, Matt and Nick Jackson, Chris Sabin, Alex Shelley, I want you to imagine, how tight do you think your grip becomes, would you believe that if you let something go you'll never hold it again. I want you to think about the parts of your humanity that you're willing to sacrifice to keep the things that are important to you. I realize that I've lived a very long life. I've been a father for thirteen years, I've been a husband for twenty three years, all the things I have! And if I woke up tomorrow, and it was all gone, and the only thing I had left was this, I'd be fine with that! Because the truth is, I'm a horrible husband, I'm a terrible father. The only thing I was ever good at was professional wrestling. This is the most important thing I've ever held. I've measured my life with this. And a life without this, isn't a life I'm interested in. So September 30th, All Star Extravaganza, with my best friend Frankie Kazarian by my side, with our backs up against the wall, with our most prized possession hanging over our heads and with two of the greatest tag teams in wrestling history in front of us, ask yourself what will Christopher Daniels do to keep the things that he wants? And I'll tell you. I will do anything. I will risk everything. Because I'm gonna be the guy that spits in the face of cliches, I'm gonna be the guy that tells time to *censored* off! Because this is going to last forever! And at All Star Extravaganza, Young Bucks, Motor City Machine Guns, The Addiction ends you."
