He is proud to be the only McMahon with the grapefruits to do what he did. His first priority is to the Corporation. To make it streamlined and powerful. He reminds everything that he will be the special guest referee at Backlash and that he will cause Steve Austin to lose the title to the Rock. He calls himself the toughest SOB in the WWF.

Ross says the detractors are saying that the Rock can't beat Austin on a level playing field, the Rock answers that he didn't assign Shane McMahon as the special ref, it's outside his hands.

She then does "the grind".
