Triple H makes his way to the ring and we get an Extreme GameFountain.
The cage comes down but it is not accompanied by the official Cage Lowering Music of WWE.
We go to commercial.
We are back and the cage is down as we await CONFRONTATION 2013 . . . EXTREME TALKING.
Triple H says that Brock Lesnar and him have been at war for a year. They have broken bones and bled and nothing has been settled. That is until Sunday. It will be settled on Sunday. This ring is his home. He grew up here and he learned to be a man here. A man who he respected told him that he needed to learn how to hate. He did. As the years went by, he learned to hate and he learned to thrive on that hate.
Nowhere did he feel more at home than in this ring and when this ring was surrounded by steel. Steel that can rip your flesh and break your bones. He tells Brock that they are here so why doesnâ€™t try to take Hunterâ€™s home from him.
Brock Lesnarâ€™s music plays and he does the most six days before Extreme Brock Bounce. Paul tells Brock not to go to the ring. Paul introduces himself but Hunter tells him to shut up.
Hunter says that everyone knows who they are so Brock can get to the ring and do it.
Paul stops Brock and he wants to know if Hunter knows what they are truly about. They are about the perverse pleasures in life. They have forced Hunter to say hate. Isnâ€™t â€˜hateâ€™ on the taboo list? That is where Paul gets the perverse pleasure. We know that Brock and Hunter hate each other.
On Sunday, his client is going to teach Hunter the true meaning of the word hate. Brock Lesnar is a cage fighting carnivore and Hunter is the biggest slab of meat in the WWE. After Sunday, Hunter will hate to face his family after what Brock does to him in the cage. Hunter will hate having to face his father in law for letting down the WWE Universe.
Hunter will hate that one man will emerge from this war as a winner and one man will have to face the fact that he will go down in history as the loser. Triple H will go down in history as the loser.
Paul says that Brock is here tonight and he is ready for a fight. A fight that Hunter will have to wait until Sunday to experience because as COO knows, Brock Lesnar does not fight for free.
Hunter tells them to stop Brockâ€™s music as Brock goes to the back. Hunter says that it just dawned on him and he was trying to wonder why Brock wonâ€™t face him like a man. Brock wonâ€™t stand face to face with him like a man. Why is that? Hunter says that it has nothing to do with Brock. It is that Paul canâ€™t afford for Brock to do that.
Hunter did the unthinkable at Wrestlemania by knocking Brock out cold. Hunter reminds Paul that he beat him. Hunter says that if Brock walks into this cage now and maybe if Hunter kicks Brockâ€™s ass another time, it doesnâ€™t bode well for Paul as a businessman.
If Brock enters the cage and he loses again, the sounds you will hear will be the roar of the crowd and the mystique of Brock Lesnar flying out the window along with his meal ticket. Brock still believes that he is the baddest man standing in this room, but Paul doesnâ€™t think that is true any more. Hunter says that he is talking to Brock and he wants to know if Brock will walk down the aisle to prove to the world that he is BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRROCK Lesnar the beast, or will he stand there waiting for what Paul Heyman will tell him to do and be Brock Lesnar . . . the bitch.
Brock makes his way to the ring while referees stand in the way until they realize that is not a smart thing to do. Paul tries to talk some sense to Brock. Brock climbs the steps while Paul begs Brock not to do it.
Brock steps in the cage, but he does not enter the ring at first. They are in the ring together.

Brock demands that the door be closed. Hunter sends Brock into the cage and now both men are sans shirts.
