Seth Rollins makes his way to the ring.
Seth says he is going to cut right to the chase. Brock and he are not cut from the same cloth. The two road they are taking to get to Wrestlemania could not be any different. There is only one road out of their match and that road will be forged by the Universal Champion. It will be forged by the man who defines the future of this business. It will be him or Brock Lesnar. That is really heavy but Seth says he wants to carry that burden. Seth says he wants to inspire people. Champions that inspired him were people like Shawn Michaels, Bret Hart, Ric Flair, Triple H, and John Cena inspire people.
Brock Lesnar does not inspire people. Seth says this is the biggest match of his career. Seth says he wanted this for a long time. It was not until recently that he realized how important it was for all of you. Seth says he had an autograph signing in Boston and everyone who came up to him said the same thing . . . Beat Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania. Seth says it hit him and he promised to beat Brock and make sure that Brock did not leave Wrestlemania as the Universal Champion. Now Seth has to beat Brock Lesnar. Seth refuses to let Brock be the champion that defines the future of this industry.
In thirteen days, he will walk into the ring with that bully who has cast a shadow over him and this entire industry. What Brock does not understand is that with an army behind him, he is unstoppable. Together, they are going to march to the edge of Suplex City and Burn . . . It . . .
Paul Heyman comes out and he introduces himself. Paul says he traveled to Boston to say thank you. Thank you Seth Rollins for allowing him to know that the match at Wrestlemania is now a handicap match. It is the reigning defending undisputed Universal Champion Brock Lesnar versus Seth Rollins and the entire WWE Universe.
Paul says he likes the odds because he assures you that your chances of winning are zero. Do you know how pathetic you sound? You need their support and affirmation. Are you going to ask for their thoughts and prayers. I’m undersized and overconfident and I have the WWE Universe to fail with me when I go to Suplex City, get dumped on my head, and get F-5ed by Brock Lesnar, I need your thoughts and prayers. You need their thoughts and their prayers because you don’t have a thought in your head on how to beat Brock Lesnar or a prayer in doing so. Paul says he does not want Seth to take it personally when Brock wins at Wrestlemania. He wants Seth to take it personally when you and the entire WWE Universe loses at Wrestlemania. Paul tosses the mic in the air and walks up the ramp.
Seth follows after Paul and Paul falls down on the stage. Paul says it was all Brock’s idea and he hopes that Seth wins.
Seth says that Paul has it all wrong. He is not asking for thoughts and prayers. He is here to answer them. We are going to Wrestlemania. We are going to beat Brock Lesnar. We are going to take the Universal Title. We are going into Suplex City and we are going to burn it down.
Kurt Angle makes his way to the ring as we go to commercial.
We are back and Samoa Joe says he forgot his bouquet of flowers and despite their history, he is not a sentimental person. Even if the New England mouthbreathers want it, he won’t let Kurt ride off into the sunset. Joe says he has a different gift and superstars are getting ready for their big night. Joe has a big gift for Kurt in Boston. A good night’s sleep is a good thing and what better way to say goodbye to Angle one more time than to put his ass to sleep.

Hunter says some things don’t make him happy. Hunter pulls out an envelope with a letter from Batista’s lawyer. This letter states that Dave will not be competing at Wrestlemania unless Hunter agrees to one more stipulation. Hunter says the letter rambles and Dave talks about his realization that Hunter started Evolution to keep the title longer. You just figured that out now? Thirteen years later. Dave also realized that the moon was not made of cheese. Dave believes that Evolution did nothing for his career. When he walked into Evolution, he was the Deacon and followed D-Von Dudley around. When he left, he was the WWE Champion. Hunter brings up that Batista had six more championships and Batista quit because he could not beat John Cena.
Batista believes Hunter’s obsession prevented him from coming back a second time because he refused his phone calls. Hunter says that Batista wanted to move the day of Wrestlemania to work around his filming schedule for Guardians of the Galaxy.
Hunter reads the letter. It says if Hunter wants him to appear at Wrestlemania, he will give him what he wants and Hunter reads the lyrics for Wannabe by The Spice Girls. It ends wtih a demand to put his career on the line at Wrestlemania. Hunter thinks about it for a moment and he says that Dave beat up a 70 year old man, a year after being on his death bed. You put him back in the hospital in a lame attempt to get a match at Wrestlemania. Hunter accepted the match for Wrestlemania. Hunter says this is what you do. It is just another attempt to quit. Hunter says he will not let Dave quit this time so he will make Dave stand up to his commitment. He will make Dave show up. You think you are obsessed with him and Hunter says he never gave a crap about you. Hunter says he is obsessed with kicking your ass. If at this point in our careers, that he cannot beat a self deluded douchebag like you, then he has no business being in this ring. You want his career on the line, you got it.
Hunter tosses the mic and leaves the ring.
Elias is on the street and we see a guitar case full of money. He says New York is the greatest city in the world, because he is here. There will be no doubt that there is one universal truth, as someone takes some of Elias’ money. Elias says there will be no doubt that WWE stands for Walk with Elias.
