Brock Lesnar & Paul Heyman Promo 

Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Paul Heyman, and i’m the advocate for the reigning, defending, undisputed, WWE Heavyweight Champion of the world, Brock Lesnar! Permit me to shed the brightness of my brilliance upon the darkness of your ignorance. The only way to describe my clients mood tonight is to educate you on the fact that Brock Lesnar is really really pissed off tonight. I know what you’re thinking. How can that possibly be after the most historic moment in combat sports history? Brock Lesnar conquered Cain Velasquez. Instead of me talking about that fact, I give to you ladies and gentlemen this ultimate piece of footage. We see the entire Lesnar/Velasquez match from WWE Crown Jewel.

After nine long years almost to the day having to suffer the dignity of having a scar carved into his face and his soul by the butcher of UFC, Cain Velasquez. My client took retribution, got revenge, vanquished Velasquez. After the most spiritually orgasmic moment in Brock Lesnar’s professional career, out comes your hero, Rey Mysterio. Once again the footage speaks for itself. My client and I went to Vince McMahon, if you don’t know, look him up on google bitches. The chairman of the board. The owner of the company. Just like Rey Mysterio delivered Cain Velasquez as a sacrifice to Brock, they demanded Rey be handed up to Brock. Vince said no because Raw Superstars are exclusive to USA Network and SmackDown Superstars are exclusive to Fox.

That’s why Rey Mysterio cannot be served up to Brock Lesnar. If Rey can’t come to Smackdown for Brock Lesnar, then as of this Monday, Brock Lesnar is going to come to Raw, looking for Rey Mysterio. If a network, chairman of the board, or WWE itself has a problem with that, what are you going to do about it? Are you going to fine or suspend Brock Lesnar? Ban Brock Lesnar from WWE? Are you going to seek litigation against Brock? My people invented litigation. We will sue WWE right back. Brock Lesnar quits Smackdown. He’ll be showing up to Raw this Monday and will go hunting for Rey Mysterio.
