Bliss says she got carried away for the moment and said some things that she should not have and there's nothing more to say, but … she's sorry. Bliss says she apologizes sincerely, but the boos continue. He sincerely apologizes … he did not tell the truth before. Let's be honest, Bliss does not apologize and the word I'm sorry is not in her vocabulary. She does not have remorse. She says that Jax was humiliated in front of the whole world and Bliss loved every second of that. Mickie laughs. Bliss says she never liked Nia, who used Nia. She likes that line and repeats it. Bliss continues to bother Jax and thanks Mickie for letting her escape because she feels so much better. Bliss says she feels her dead weight taken away, as if she had just lost 300 pounds of pathetic loser. Fans, boo. Bliss tells them to keep their boos for someone to continue.
