Jack Swagger and Zeb Colter make their way to the ring. Jack welcomes everyone to Jack Swagger’s America. He says that he is your future World Champion. He wants everyone to show some respect to his friend and mentor. He is a Real American and a Founding Father. . . Zeb Colter.
Zeb wants to get down to it. He wants everyone to admit something to themselves. He wants them to admit that they share the same values as Jack and him. That they share the same sense of patriotism and think alike. They can all see what is wrong with our country, but you are too scared and afraid to say or do anything about it.
Zeb asks if they know anyone who has lost a job because someone has sneaked across our porous borders because they will work for a few pesos or a pat on the head. That is why they are your spokesman and they will be there to help with a new Bill of Rights for legal citizens.
Jack and Zeb give a We The People.
Zeb says that We the People have had enough.
Jack says that he will draw a line in the sand and he is taking America back.
Zeb says that if you don’t agree with them, then you are the problem because he and Jack are the solution.

Alberto tells Zeb and Jack that they have it all wrong. Alberto has a solution. He is going to show what Jack Swagger’s ‘Real America’ is all about.
