Brock Lesnar's door is still in the building and Paul Heyman comes out of the locker room and he tells Brock he will see him out there.

We go to commercial.

We are back and Paul Heyman introduces himself and he says that he knows you have been sitting on the edge of your seats to see the greatest combat sports athlete.  Paul introduces the Beast of the Broctogon and the Viper Slayer . . . Brock Lesnar.

Paul says on August 21st from the Barclays Center his client BROCK LESNAR will entertain you.  Paul questions whether he advocated his client will entertain you?  Brock's form of entertainment is not the same style of entertainment they try to market and sell in the WWE.  BROCK LESNAR's form of entertainmetn is politically incorrect and . . .  violent.

Paul says he is not supposed to say that word but he is standing next to Brock Lesnar and he can say any damn word he wants to say.  Brock is not here to put his stamp on the new era.  He does not have to step up to the new era.  The new era needs to step up to Brock Lesnar.  Brock is not here to curry favor with Mick Foley, Stephanie McMahon, Vince McMahon, or any one in the locker room.  That means Randy Orton.

Paul asks Brock if he heard of Randy Orton.  He is a third generation superstar.  He is a twelve time WWE Champion.  He possesses the great equalizer, the RKO.  They say Randy is one RKO away from victory.  They say if Randy Orton hits an RKO on Brock, Randy will shock the world the way that Brock shocked the world at Wrestlemania 30.

Where does Randy Orton get these ideas?  Maybe they are the voices in his head.  Paul asks how many of these voices are telling you that Brock Lesnar is going to beat your ass at SummerSlam and drag you down to Suplex City.  If those voices are not telling you that, those voices are full of mularkey.  If your voices are telling you that and you are not listening to them, Paul asks Randy to listen to the wise old Jew.  Randy Orton is going to beat your ass and drag you down to Suplex City.

Paul says that they should take the victory out of the equation.  Maybe they should talk about survival.   Maybe you won't go to the hospital.  Maybe you will wrestle again in the year 2016.  You will not get Brock in the position for the RKO.

Randy Orton hits an RKO on Brock.

Mick Foley and Stephanie McMahon walk slowly down the ramp while security goes past him and Randy Orton gets into the crowd.

We go to credits.
