We are live from Fresno, California and your announcers are Michael ‘Daniel Bryan likes one-third of this city’s name’ Cole and Jerry ‘I am good at the announce table and I won’t say anything mean to Brock’ Lawler.

We begin the show with Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman making their way to the ring. We see photos of the match between Brock and Triple H from SummerSlam.

Paul tells everyone that he is talking right now. He know how everyone feels because when Brock Lesnar faced Triple H, it was a most uncomfortable match to watch. Not only because of Triple H’s ability to withstand violence. Paul says that he was doing a better job eleven years ago at the announce table watching Triple H tear a quadriceps, and he continued to fight. Triple H is a warrior who fought despite a terrible injury. Brock Lesnar could because last night at SummerSlam, Brock Lesnar defeated Triple H and forced him to tap out.

For those of you who do not know what ‘Tapping Out’ means, it means that Brock forced Triple H to quit on his own family . . . on his company . . . on his friends . . . on his fans . . . on all of the people.

Brock made Triple H suffer. He stripped Triple H of his dignity and manhood because this athlete forced Triple H down to the canvas and left him the battered shell of a former man. Paul says that he does not feel sorry for Triple H and neither should anyone else. This was a fight that Triple H picked. It was not just a fight with Triple H that he could not win. Paul points out that Triple H pulled the referee into his room to tell him to let the rules be bent and broken. He wanted a fight to a finish.

Paul asks Scott Armstrong to come to the ring because Brock would like to address him.

Scott does not come to the ring and Paul starts to get impatient.

Scott finally makes his way to the stage and down the ramp to the ring. He tells Scott that Brock does not bite.

Scott gingerly enters the ring and Paul wants to make sure that Scott was the referee and that Triple H told him to let the rules be bent and broken. Brock has two words for Scott.

Those words are ‘good job’.

Paul says that not only did Brock end the career of Triple H, he endangered the future of the entire WWE. Paul says that Brock is now the new ‘King of Kings’. He says that he is the master of the Brock-tagon and the conqueror of the WWE Universe. That means that each and every one is a loyal subject of the Lord and Master of the WWE Universe.

Brock bounces as he accepts his new title.

Brock and Paul leave the ring.
