He talks about new faces backstage but the one thing that’s the same is the talk. Shawn says everyone is talking about the confrontation at SummerSlam between Triple H and Brock Lesnar. Lesnar’s music interrupts and out he comes with Paul Heyman.
Heyman takes the mic and says everyone wants to know Shawn’s opinion of the match. Heyman calls Shawn the greatest in-ring entertainer in WWE history. Heyman says Lesnar isn’t going to SummerSlam as an entertainer. He’s not going to entertain with Triple H. Brock doesn’t care about entertaining. Lesnar is going to SummerSlam to fight Triple H and to prove once again that he’s the baddest dude on the planet today, Heyman says. The crowd chants for HBK.
Shawn says he’s not here to dispute the attributes of Lesnar. Heyman chimes in but Shawn tells him not to put words in his mouth. Shawn says Triple H is acting like someone he doesn’t even know anymore. Shawn says on this day, he’s going with Triple H as the winner and he believes that so much he wants to be there and see it personally. Shawn announces he will be in Triple H’s corner at SummerSlam to watch Triple H defeat Brock Lesnar. Heyman tells Lesnar that’s the big announcement that they will replay when they look back at Triple H’s career. Heyman says it’s bad enough that Triple H’s wife and kids have to witness what Lesnar is going to do. Lesnar cuts Heyman off and takes the mic. Lesnar says the only reason Shawn thinks Triple H will win is because he’s never been in the ring with him. Until now. Lesnar drops the mic and approaches Shawn. Triple H’s music hits and out he comes ready to fight.
Heyman moves to the apron as Lesnar gets ready to fight. Triple H stands beside Shawn and also gets ready. Lesnar laughs and takes the mic.
