We start things off with Paul Heyman in the ring. He says that is not how it is done. Paul introduces himself and he says that he wants to try something new this evening. He was speaking with his client in the back and he realized that the name of this show is Main Event. Being, with all false humility aside, the greatest main event advocate in history, Paul would like to change this show to Paul Heymanâ€™s Main Event. Paul does not understand the reaction because if you look back.
Paul says that there is a well kept secret, his client BROCK LESNAR conquered the Undertakerâ€™s undefeated streak at Wrestlemania. His client is guaranteed to be the next Raw and Smackdown main event. He is tonightâ€™s main event Main Event. He will be the main event of Wrestlemania. He is the Swiss Superman, the King of Swing. He is Cesaro.
Cesaro makes his way to the ring.
Paul looks around and he says this is exactly what he has been trying to explain to Cesaro. The WWE Universe is filled with forgiving wannabes. The reaction was indicative of that. He is the greatest athlete from Europe. Every European can look at him and say â€˜this is my guy. He is what a European athlete should be.â€™ The first time that Cesaro got a check as a Paul Heyman guy, he got out of Europe and moved to America.
Paul tells everyone they would do the same thing.
On Monday, he beat Sheamus and slighted him. Sheamus will be forgiving. Tonight, on Paul Heymanâ€™s Main Event, he will be forgiving because he will have lost to the real Worldâ€™s Strongest Man.
Mark Henryâ€™s music plays and he makes his way to the ring.
Paul tells Mark that Mr. Cesaroâ€™s advocate was not done speaking.
Mark tells Paul that he is done speaking when he says that Paul is done speaking. Mark says that it sounded like Paul said that Cesaro was the strongest man in the world. There is only one Worldâ€™s Strongest Man and it is him, not this Swiss Miss.
Paul says that he did not mean any disrespect to Mark but it is not bad to be number two. At least not for Henry. Paul says that he is the one in twenty-one and one.
