Brock Lesnar, Paul Heyman, Kofi Kingston and Seth Rollins In-Ring Segment:
Last week on SmackDown Live, Kevin Owens took out Big E and re-injured his knee. After Kofi’s match with Sami Zayn, you saw what Dolph Ziggler did. Ziggler brutalized him in and out of the ring. He tried to end Kofi’s career. Unfortunately he didn’t finish the job because Kofi’s standing tall. When the time is right, he will address Dolph Ziggler. Tonight, Kofi is here for Mr. Money in the Bank. Paul Heyman said that Brock chooses his opponent tonight. Kofi’s not only a fighting champion and one of the greatest of all time. What will validate that statement is defeating Brock. Kofi wants Brock to come out and cash in his contract on him tonight. Kofi gets interrupted by the WWE Universal Champion, Seth Rollins.
Rollins says that he’s better than Brock. Rollins likes Kofi’s way of thinking. He wants to know who will Brock cash in on. It’s time everybody for The Brock Party. Brock has turn the money in the bank briefcase into a mini boombox. Brock stares at Kofi while New Day music is blaring in the background. Then he turns his attention to Rollins. Rollins drops the mic and storms out of the ring because he’s not going to deal with any of Brock’s games. Paul Heyman says there’s no booing of his client, Brock Lesnar. It’s just like Seth Rollins to pee on everybody’s parade. His client, Brock Lesnar, was going to announce right here, right now, against whom he was going to cash in the briefcase against, but Seth Rollins had to ruin The Brock Party. Don’t blame them, blame Seth Rollins. Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman heads to the backstage area.
Dolph Ziggler & The New Day In-Ring Segment:
While we get no answer from Brock Lesnar, Kofi exits the ring. Dolph Ziggler attacks Kofi from behind. Ziggler drops Kofi with The Zig Zag on the steel grate.

Kofi Kingston storms into the ring to make the save. Ziggler retreats to the stage. Ziggler thought he knew Kofi. Kofi’s been wasting all of his time on whether or not Brock Lesnar is cashing in his money in the bank briefcase.
Kofi should’ve been worrying about Ziggler this entire time. In eleven days, Kofi defend that WWE title against him. Ziggler hopes Kofi does one thing. He wants Kofi to celebrate like he’s never have before. Kofi is the best WWE Champion that he can remember. Every time Ziggler sees that title around Kofi’s waist, it reminds him that it should’ve been him. Ziggler admires Kofi. He’s had two friends to watch his back every step of the way. Some people said that Kofi was no better than a B+ player, but Ziggler defended him. What happens when Kofi is no longer the WWE Champion? The millions of fans that look up to you since Day One? What happens to the fans when Ziggler takes that title from Kofi? It took a little bit longer than he wanted because at WrestleMania, it should’ve been him. At Super Showdown, it will be him.

— WWE (@WWE) May 28, 2019
The McMahon family and The Samoan Dynasty have been pillars of the WWE community. It all comes down to respect. Respect was ingrained in him since a young age. It has not for Roman Reigns. That explains how Roman Reigns was able to strike down the patriarch of the WWE. What type of human being strikes down another man’s father? Look at who Roman is representing. It goes back to the High Chief Peter Maivia. Then you have is his grandson, The Rock, The Headshrinkers and The Usos. The two most vicious were The Wild Samoans. Afa and Roman Reigns’ father, Sika. Shane grew up knowing Afa and Sika. He may know them better than Roman does. He had a front seat for all of their accomplishments and their mistakes. Shane is not going to disparage The Wild Samoans because that’s not in him. It’s not part of his DNA.
HIs father was always there to clean up Afa and Sika’s mistakes. Shane is here to represent the McMahon family and he is ready to fight.

The time has come for his client to inform one champion which champion Brock will be cashing in his briefcase against. Rollins immediately storms into the ring. This title is Rollins life. This is what he works for and it’s what he sacrifices for every day. Brock made a mockery of this, not because of his beatbox, but because he’s a joke. Rollins is not afraid of Brock and he can beat him again right now. Brock used to be the most feared man in combat sports history.
Now he’s a coward hiding behind Paul Heyman. He’s a shell of what he used to be. If Brock wants a chance to prove him wrong, prove it now. Rollins tells Brock to cash it in.
