We are back with a Rey Mysterio video package.
Seth Rollins makes his way to the ring.
Seth says he was going to talk about Brock Lesnar and Wrestlemania, but he had a chance to watch that highlight reel so he wants to talk about the last twelve months. From running the gauntlet last year to going to Wrestlemania to winning the Intercontinental Title to defending it on six continents, it has been a crazy year. Seth says he was glad to share it with all of you. This year, he felt like Seth Freaking Rollins. He rode that momentum all the way to the Royal Rumble to achieve the childhood dream and punch his ticket to Wrestlemania (and he points at the sign).
The next night, the bottom fell out in the name of Brock Lesnar and six F5s. Seth said he had to go home to think about it. The bad news is that he took six F5s and it hurt. Maybe that is from the last twelve months or the fifteen years of his career. The pain from those F5s was nothing that he felt before. The good news is that he took six F5s and he is still here. He took six F5s and he is still standing. If he can stand then he can fight. If he can fight, he can stomp. If he can stomp, he can beat Brock.
He was asked what was it worth to take those F5s. Seth says he told everyone he did not care. If Wrestlemania is the last match of his career . . .
Paul Heyman interrupts and makes his way to the stage and he introduces himself.
Paul says he has a Wrestlemania level surprise for Seth. Brock Lesnar . . . is not here tonight.
Seth says he is not surprised.
Paul says it gets everyone all the time because ignorance is bliss. He says he is here to educate all of you and to educate Seth Rollins. You are pontificating on the premise of a misguided notion that all men are created equal and they are not. Do you honestly believe that your DNA matches Brock’s? You are a great athlete, a top tier performer. A Wrestlemania main eventer. One of the best he has ever seen in his life.
Brock Lesnar is a beast. He is a predator. Brock is a career killer. Brock is a merciless sadist with an unrepentant soul. If you go into Wrestlemania doing what you consider to be your last match, it will be a suicide mission. If you walk into Wrestlemania and try to take the Universal Title from Brock, you will be the architect of your own demise. Paul says that is not a prediction, that is a spoiler.
Seth tells Paul he is right, but what you don’t understand is that he does not care. Brock has held this industry, an industry he loves more than anything, hostage for the last two years. He cannot take it any more. If it is a suicide mission, he will be the martyr. He will sacrifice his body and heart. He will sell his soul to the devil if it means Brock does not leave Wrestlemania as the Universal Champion.
That is not a prediction, that is a spoiler.
Dean Ambrose makes his way to the stage.and then to the ring.
Dean asks for the mic and Seth gives it to him.
Dean says he only has one thing to say to Seth. Slay the beast.

Becky says if she doesn’t apologize, that frees up her place in the Raw Women’s Title Match. This advise has nothing to do with you wanting her place at Wrestlemania.
