Brock Lesnar & Paul Heyman In-Ring Segment: 

Someone has a problem with the word undisputed. Someone wants to dispute the fact that Brock Lesnar is not the champion of WWE. This champion has barely survived the title challenge of Randy Orton and Shinsuke Nakamura. He’s also trying to figure out how to barely survive the title challenge of, AJ Styles. On the flagship show, Brock Lesnar has gone through the most stacked heavyweight division in WWE. That fact is undisputed. It’s undisputed that we live in the age of trash talking. Everyone wants to trash talk and hurl insults. Everyone wants to run down their opponents and hurl insults at their opponent’s families. The biggest trash talker has the mic in his hand now. Paul Heyman never wanted to trash talk Brock’s opponents. Any man deemed worthy enough to face Brock Lesnar, has his respect.

Heyman praised Goldberg, Samoa Joe and Braun Strowman. Jinder Mahal? The make believe maharaja with the Singh Singh Sing along brothers doing his shtick Jinder is not Brock’s equal, contemporary, or counterpart. When you think of real WWE Champions, you think of guys like, Bruno Sammartino, Hulk Hogan, Randy Savage, Triple H, Shawn Michaels, John Cena, and his client. Jinder Mahal was offered to Smackdown when they got the shaft in the Superstar Shakeup. 

Let’s make something perfectly clear, Brock Lesnar is not waving Raw’s flag. There’s no battle for brand supremacy. Any brand that brags Brock Lesnar is the number one brand in WWE. That’s undisputed. Because Jinder disputes that, he’s going to Suplex City at Survivor Series. The last time a SmackDown Live Superstar walked into the ring to face Brock Lesnar, they had to stop the match. The locker room was outraged. On that night, his client violated every single rule of the PG Era. Jinder’s challenge is hereby accepted by the undisputed beast. It’s accepted by the undisputed conqueror. It’s accept by the reigning, defending, Undisputed Universal Champion, Brock Lesnar.
