Roman Reigns & Brock Lesnar Segment 

Roman Reigns: As the back of the shirt says, we the ones, because I’m number one. So, Baltimore, Acknowledge Me!

Paul Heyman: I’m sorry, but that’s not loud enough for your Tribal Chief. It doesn’t surprise me from a room full of Baltimorons. Nor should it surprise anyone who is the number one draft pick, because if you think back before Extreme Rules you had to say, the undefeated demon, but now you can’t say that anymore because that demon ran up against an exorcist named Roman Reigns.

But like a shark that circles the island of relevancy, this shark only swims looking forward. And what this shark looks forward to is Crown Jewel, which will not be held in Suplex City. Because, ladies and gentlemen, I assure you, that beast will come up against the suplexorcist, Roman Reigns. Because Roman Reigns will remain your Universal Heavyweight Champion. And he will smash at Crown Jewel, Brock Lesnar.
