The contract signing is up next to end RAW!
We're officially in overtime here as Triple H makes his entrance for the contract signing at 11:00 P.M. on the dot. Cole and Lawler lament the dilemma of Triple H not knowing what stipulation he faces in his match with Lesnar unless he signs the contract right then and there.
Heyman and a few security guards make their way down to the ring. Hunter thought Lesnar would be one to face him even after being split open. Heyman denies the implication that Lesnar is afraid, as he is fearless. Heyman admits to being afraid of Triple H, because he knows what kind of situation he's in. If he doesn't sign, he denies himself and the fans a great Wrestlemania match. The second option, he signs the contract not knowing what the stipulations are. Heyman thinks Triple H doesn't know what to do yet and is very frustrated. Heyman doesn't want those frustrations taken out on him so that's why he has security with him. Triple H knocks the quality of Heyman's security. Heyman shows that Lesnar has already signed the contract. He says he will reveal the stipulations only after Triple H signs.
Triple H is ready to do this and asks for the contract. Heyman says he wants to take a minute and really enjoy this. Heyman says they have spent time watching one piece of footage over and over again. Heyman shows footage from three weeks ago when Lesnar and Triple H brawled at ringside, leaving Lesnar busted open. Heyman asks, "How do you top that?" Heyman says he knows and says in an over-the-top sarcastic tone that it will be Triple H blindfolded at WrestleMania. "Nah," he says. Heyman jokingly says it will be Triple H with his hands cuffed and ankles shackled in the match. Nope, not that one either. Heyman says Lesnar is letting Heyman pick the stipulation. Heyman says the winner of the match gets Stephanie McMahon. Heyman says that wouldn't work. It would be more fitting if the LOSER gets Stephanie. Ooooh boy, Paul E. just never learns, does he?
Triple H flips his shit and pulls Heyman over the desk. Security attacks Triple H but he fights them off and tosses them out of the ring, except for the last one, who does the smartest thing IN THE WORLD and bails on Heyman. Triple H grabs Heyman by his hair and slams his face into the table. Triple H rips Heyman's shirt over and hits him in the chest. Heyman screams for Lesnar's help. Triple H says he knows Brock isn't coming out until he signs the contract; Hunter echoes Heyman's sentiment about taking his time and enjoying this. Triple H smacks Heyman around as he screams for Lesnar.
Brock finally comes out, crashing a steel chair around the stage. He marches to the ring, while Triple H pulls a sledgehammer from the table! Brock just seemingly laughs it off and tosses the chair at a waiting Game. Heyman wards Brock off, saying they've won this round tonight as they pace around the ring and back up the ramp. Heyman says the beating was worth it tonight to get Triple H to sign the contract. It will be Triple H versus Brock Lesnar with no count-outs, no disqualifications and no stoppage for any and all reasons...NO HOLDS BARRED! The crowd seems a mite underwhelmed by the choice, that is, until Heyman announces an added stipulation: Triple H's career is on the line! Hunter nearly drops the hammer in shock as Heyman mockingly waves good-bye and says "Game Over" as Brock looks on with a menacing grin.
