Week after week, The Injustice infidels talk about rising up against CONTRA. You may fool the fools, but I can smell the fear. I can feel it. And last week, CONTRA showed just how pathetic you straight children really are. Pathetic. Next week at Never Say Never, CONTRA will unleash a campaign of horrors, unlike anything you’ve ever seen, especially you, Calvin Tankman, you said you’re coming for Fatu, that you’re gonna take the World Championship by any means necessary, that’s what they all say just before their execution. Just ask the victims. I call it, euphoria. Tankman, there is no escaping the public execution that awaits you next week. First, you have to survive tonight. HAIL, CONTRA !!!
