We go to commercial with a tease of a video feature for the Lesnar/Cena match.

We are back and it is time to focus on the WWE World Title Match with a video package about Brock and John. Paul Heyman says that bad things happen to good people when you step into the ring with Brock Lesnar. Brock says that he is an ass kicking son of a bitch and he does not care who he pisses off. He came back to be the champ. He does not give a f*** about who is in his way. He only wants that person to feel pain. If you want to wrap your head around his world, Brock likes to hurt people.

Everything that has been put in front of Brock Lesnar, he has conquered. He comes off his biggest win of his career. He just beat the Undertaker (four months ago). He knew he was going to beat the Undertaker. Everyone knew it, but they couldn’t accept it. Did they think Taker would win because he is a mythological god? Why can’t Brock Lesnar beat John Cena at SummerSlam?

Brock says that he left the company to make a name for himself. If he never left, there would be no John Cena. He would not be getting paid by Fruity Pebbles.

John says that if Brock did not leave, there would be no John Cena. Brock is a mercenary and hired gun who works for money and can fight every once in a while. John says that for twelve years, he has dedicated his life to this company.

Brock says that he will rip John Cena apart at SummerSlam and he will stand over him holding the WWE Championship with pride. He will leave John in a pile of blood, urine, and vomit.

He does that enough himself. It is the president’s birthday today. He is going to sing Happy Birthday to Barack Obama in Russian.

Jack Swagger’s music plays and he comes out with Zeb Colter and his large American flag.

Colter tells Lana to shut up and he says that he is sick and tired of hearing that shrill voice of hers. No wonder Russian men drink so much vodka. Colter says that he is sick and tired of Lana’s ‘Vladimir Putin’ and ‘Mother Russia’. He is sick of hearing Rusev Crush. You two Bolshevik twitheads have no idea what they are fighting at SummerSlam. Jack Swagger is fighting for the 50 stars and 13 bars as well as every Real American around the world.

Zeb shows us who Jack Swagger is fighting for. He is fighting for Nick and Megan. He is also fighting for the men and women in uniform. He tells Natasha and the Dancing Bear.
