The Universal Champion Brock Lesnar and his advocate Paul Heyman make their way to the ring.
We see what happened last night in the main event of Extreme Rules when Brock cashed in his briefcase.
Paul says he represents the beast who slammed the summer and ruled the extreme . . . and NEW, reigning , defending Undisputed Universal Champion Brock Lesnar. Paul says it amazes you that you tell people the truth, but they would rather hear a lie. Paul says we told you so. Paul says he came out here last week and told you that Brock was going to cash in. He came out last night and told you his client was going to cash in and leave Philadelphia as champion. That is what Brock did.
Paul tells the crowd not to boo them, but boo yourselves for not listening. Paul says someone else needs to hear an I Told You So, the entire WWE. Paul says Seth would not be defending the title at SummerSlam and you better have a title match set up. Paul says he has all the stroke around here right now. Paul says he has decided how we are going to determine who is going to be Brock’s challenger at SummerSlam. Paul says his client is not the easiest conqueror to negotiate with. Brock fights who he wants to fight and he will do what he wants to do.
Tonight, he has come up with a plan. He has a cross branded top ten Battle Royal to determine who faces Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam. They will be beaten, victimized, and conquered by Brock Lesnar.
The ten men are Seth Rollins, Randy Orton, Big E, Cesaro, Braun Strowman, Rey Mysterio, Baron Corbin, Sami Zayn, Bobby Lashley, and Roman Reigns.
Paul tells Roman to check with Seth Rollins because Seth strode into Philadelphia like he was Becky Lynch’s stud, but when Brock was done with Seth, he was nothing more than a gelding. Paul says when you step into the ring with Brock, you risk your health, your welfare, and your very manhood. Paul says here is a guarantee . . . a spoiler. If any one of you ever had an opportunity to step into the ring with Brock Lesnar, you will be risking your health, welfare, and manhood. In this universe, you are all Brock’s bitches.
