Brock Lesnar, Paul Heyman, and Drew McIntyre In-Ring Segment 

Paul Heyman: 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. You know what? I’m sorry, I can’t do it. It’s our job, literally to come out here tonight and hype you on WrestleMania. And although i’ll give credit where credit is due, almost top to bottom, this is the most stacked WrestleMania line up in decades. Ladies and gentlemen, the main event of WrestleMania is a sham. Oh, come on. You can sit there like Pavlovian dogs all you want, you know it, Brock Lesnar knows it and I know it too, they want to sell you on Drew McIntyre. And ladies and gentlemen, Drew McIntyre is a hyped up fraud.

Okay, let’s examine why you cheer so much for Drew McIntyre. At the Royal Rumble, Brock Lesnar didn’t just survive against 15 of the top stars in WWE, Brock Lesnar massacred 15 consecutive top stars in World Wrestling Entertainment, only to get hit from behind, in the testicles by Ricochet, which left Brock Lesnar vulnerable to Drew McIntyre, ClayMore Kicking Brock Lesnar flush in the face, knocking Brock Lesnar over the top rope, eliminating Brock Lesnar from the Royal Rumble Match. And like the pavlovian dogs that you are, you cheer this information. Pavlovian dogs and here’s why. We offer no excuses that Drew McIntyre kicked Brock Lesnar in the face. We offer no excuses that The ClayMore Kick eliminated Brock Lesnar from the Royal Rumble Match.

But how in the hell does that tell you, Drew McIntyre can pin Brock Lesnar? Let alone pin Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania, he can’t. How does it tell you that, Drew McIntyre can tap out Brock Lesnar, let alone tap out Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania for the WWE Title, he can’t. All it does is show you, Drew McIntyre can take advantage of a momentary situation. And the fact of the matter is, the next time Brock Lesnar lays his eyes and his hands on Drew McIntyre, it’s over like that. And you want to know why? Because, Drew McIntyre is nothing more than a stupid big bitch, that’s going to get squashed at WrestleMania.

Drew McIntyre walks down to the ring. Big standoff in the center of the ring. Brock Lesnar plays it off like he’s not ready to fight. Brock goes for a Running Clothesline, but McIntyre counters with The ClayMore Kick. McIntyre delivers Two More ClayMore Kicks on the stage to close the segment.
