Brock Lesnar, Paul Heyman, Seth Rollins and Kane In-Ring Segment:
Heyman reminds us that he is the advocate for the Cadillac Crushing, J&J Conquering, Badass Avenger who on Sunday makes Seth Rollins pay for his sins. The Beast of Battleground Brock Lesnar. He says he doesn’t know about you but his heart is pounding through his chest. It is not because he is fat, but it is because history will be made in six days. You will have the opportunity to see this beast Lesnar enter the ring as a challenger. How many times have you seen Brock Lesnar as a challenger? When he was a rookie, he walked into the ring as challenger and he victimized Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and walked out the WWE Champion. When Brock went to UFC, he walked into the octagon as a challenger, but when he faced Randy Couture, he walked out as the champion. At SummerSlam, he walked into the ring as a challenger, but what happened to John Cena? Eat, sleep, suplex, repeat. Brock walked out the champion and he would be the champion today if it was not for that revolting, sneaky slimy Seth Rollins. This Sunday night, he doesn’t beg or plead a lot, but circle the date on your calendar. Sunday, July 19th, Brock will walk into the ring a challenger, but he will not walk out of the ring the same way. You are going to get beat up. You are going to get your ass kicked by Brock Lesnar. You are going to be suplexed by Brock Lesnar. You are going to be F-5ed by Brock Lesnar. You are going to be pinned by Brock Lesnar. When Brock has his foot on your chest, Brock will raise the title belt.
Rollins asks Lesnar if he is real proud of himself and he asks if this makes him happy. Rollins says that he cannot wait until Sunday when he wipes that smile off your stupid face. He gave Lesnar every opportunity last week to come out like a man, but you were a coward. You took out your frustration on an inanimate object. It was not any inanimate object, it was a gift he gave to his friends. Rollins says he is still shaken up over it. Rollins says what is worse is you parade it around like it is a trophy. You make it a symbol of what you think I am going to look like after Battleground. Rollins says the title belt is his trophy. Rollins says he is everything right about WWE. Brock is a thug and a criminal. Rollins says he is going to take a trip to Suplex City. He is bringing the matches and gasoline and he is going to burn Suplex City to the ground.

Brock Lesnar versus Seth Rollins is what is best for business Kane tells Heyman that if his client does anything. Heyman asks Kane if he is going to threaten him. Heyman says that it looks like they are going to be threatened by the Undertaker’s baby brother. Heyman apologizes and he asks if he was not supposed to say that? Heyman says that he was not supposed to mention that Brock conquered your brother’s undefeated streak at Wrestlemania. Heyman says this is a wonderful idea. His client, the beast, the conqueror Brock Lesnar in a contract signing. Heyman says that Brock will come to the signing with peace, love, and understanding as long as Rollins does not violate the Eleventh Commandment. If Rollins does, Suplex City comes to Atlanta, GA.
