Paul Heyman brings up the question of how he got Brock Lesnar back into the WWE. Heyman says The Authority doesn’t want Lesnar’s money. The demand is for Brock Lesnar to return is for Lesnar to apologize in public right here, right now, tonight.

Paul Heyman asks if Michael Cole accepts the apology. Heyman says Brock Lesnar will have to apologize in advance for what he does to the slinky, slimy, disgusting Seth Rollins. Heyman says Rollins has been protected since NXT, saying Rollins sold his soul for a long-term for a short-term gain to cement his place as the Future Of The WWE. Heyman says this worked out until The Authority realized Brock Lesnar was what’s “Beast For Business.”
Paul Heyman tells Seth Rollins that he may think he’s going to Battleground on July 19th, but he has a first-class ticket to Suplex City, Bitch!
Paul Heyman says this is not courtesy of The Authority of Mr. McMahon’s millions, J & J Security who beat Seth, Kane, who wants to eat Seth, and the WWE Universe who wants someone to defeat Seth. Heyman says this trip to Suplex City is brought to Rollins by the man who conquered The Streak and the Beast Of Battleground, Brock Lesnar. Heyman vows Brock will once again be the reigning, defending, conquering Heavyweight Champion of the World.
