“Yes, sir, we promised you a great main event…”
-Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman make their way to the ring to kick off the show. Heyman says he knows how the crowd feels, because last night's main event was uncomfortable to watch. He sat at that very desk doing a far better job than those announcers years ago, and saw HHH rip his quad, yet he finished a fight. What a warrior he was. That man fought through that, a torn quad couldn't stop HHH, but Brock Lesnar could. Lesnar defeated HHH, forcing him to tap out. What that means is that Lesnar made HHH to QUIT. He made his quit on his family, to quit on the company, to quit on his friends, his fans and all of YOU in the crowd. Lesnar made him suffer, took his dignity and left him a shell of a man. Heyman doesn't feel sorry for HHH, and neither should you. HHH picked the fight, he told the referee to his locker room and said to bend the rules and made it a fight for the finish. So at this time, on behalf of Lesnar, he calls referee Scott Armstrong to the ring.
Heyman demands that someone send out Armstrong, and here he comes. Heyman urges Armstrong to come to the ring, saying it is live TV and that Lesnar doesn't bite, but basically does everything else. Heyman asks him if HHH asked for the rules to be broken and for it to be a fight to the finish. Heyman says Lesnar has two words for him, and Lesnar says, "Good job." Heyman says Lesnar ended HHH's career, and jeopardized the future of the WWE. Heyman then announces that Lesnar is the NEW KING OF KINGS, the MASTER OF THE BROCKTAGON and Conqueror of the WWE universe!
