The Number One catchphrase is ‘And that’s the bottom line because Stone Cold said so’ from Steve Austin. We even hear Steve Austin singing Kumbaya to Vince McMahon. We even get a few ‘whats’ from Austin.
It is time to talk about signatures. They mention John Hancock’s signature on the Declaration of Independence and how John Hancock is a part of the lexicon today.
Dolph Ziggler says that asking for his autograph is part of the dream come true about becoming a WWE Superstar. Kofi Kingston mentions that he was told that his cursive was chicken scratch, but now people are asking for his autograph.
