It's the usual Jon Ronson thing, and it's nothing we haven't heard before. In fact, it doesn't really go into things in much detail at all. But there's a hilarious exchange with Dom's favourite, John Morrison, and a quick chat with Kane:

"I have no idea what's going on in the dressing rooms," I say. "Why are we kept away?"

"We don't want outsiders back there," he says. "Back there is specifically for our very special fraternity. It's sort of a fraternal atmosphere, although it includes some women, and we don't want to give that away to people." He pauses and looks down into my eyes. "You've got to earn your way into it before you see what happens."

"Are we not allowed to see it," I ask, "because it's fantastically mysterious or because it's boring and disappointing?"

There is a silence. Kane thinks about this. "It might be a combination of the two, actually."

His palace of wisdom seems to involve hammering opponents' faces into the floor.
