He said Brock was here and could be cashing in tonight and it would be a spoiler that he’s going to leave with the WWE title or the Universal title. He said to tell that here, he’d have to be a stupid SOB, so you have to ask if he’s telling them the truth or he’s Paul Heyman. Usual good job from Heyman.
