The rains have now stopped... but it's only the quite before the real storm. Buried Alive... who could have thought that it would come to this? Each time you escaped the clutches of these purple fists, you grew stronger, yet more evil... so you see you've left me with no choice... I must now be your judge, your jury and your executioner. If it takes destroying the Undertaker to destroy you Mankind... well then that's what I will do... you must be extinguished. Why don't you try and imagine what those last few breaths of air will taste like... try and imagine... what it must be like... try and claw your way out of a bottomless pit... try to imagine what it will be like... to never... rest in peace. This... is the final thing you'll ever see!
