Finn Balor makes his way to the ring.

He says last night for ten minutes, he went toe to toe with Brock Lesnar.  Finn says he makes no excuses.  Brock Lesnar beat him.  Then, Brock Lesnar beat him again.  He never felt speed like it or power like it.  He never saw it combined.  Today, he is hurt.  Finn says he is not standing out here with his head held low.  He is standing out here with his head held high.  Last night, Brock Lesnar beat him and Brock beat him again because he made Brock Lesnar believe.

Bobby Lashley's music interrupts and he comes out with Lio Rush.  

Lio says it is a disgrace that a twerp like you got a shot at the Universal Championship.  We all know that you almost beat Brock Lesnar last night, but you wouldn't stand a snowball's chance in hell of beating Bobby Lashley.  Bobby is bigger, faster, stronger than Brock Lesnar will ever be.  That beating you took last night is nothing compared to what Lashley will do to you.

Finn points out he lasted longer with Brock than Lashley did in the Rumble.

We go to commercial.
