Roman Reigns, Brock Lesnar, and Adam Pearce Segment 

Roman Reigns: You holding that title for me or for Brock? Because when I put my hand out, you did the right thing with the mic, but last night I put my hand out and you just threw the title into the ring. Should we work on this ? This is how it’s done here. Oh, that’s pretty easy, right? You’re not great at your job, you’re not, but I am. I don’t think there’s any denying it at this point. I am the best of the best. I carried this product, I carried WWE on my back for over a year and a half now. I’m your Tribal Chief. I’m The Head Of The Table.

I’m the greatest Universal Champion of all-time. You want to know why? Because I smashed everyone. The list has gotten so long now, we can’t even go back to the beginning. So let’s start at Mania. Daniel Bryan, Edge, smashed them. Cesaro, smashed him. Finn Balor, smashed him. Hollywood Mega Star, John Cena, smashed him. And your boy, Brock Lesnar, well, last night at Saudi Arabia, Crown Jewel, I smashed Brock Lesnar. Speaking of Brock, what did he say about today? What did he say about SmackDown? He said something to his tribal chief, didn’t he? What did he say? Hurry up, Paul.

Paul Heyman: Brock Lesnar said, the moment I arrive at SmackDown, I will beat Roman Reigns senseless.

Roman Reigns: Man, I whoop Brock Lesnar so bad, he’s tweeting now, good god. Alright, let’s do this. Brock, you want to beat me senseless? I already told you, you know where I’m at, this is my show, I run SmackDown, I run WWE, I’m staying right here, bro. I’m not going anywhere. So, if you want to see Brock Lesnar tonight, do you want to see Brock Lesnar tonight? Me too, because I don’t mind smashing him two nights in a row. Wichita, would you like to see me whoop Brock Lesnar’s ass tonight? Then acknowledge your Tribal Chief. Brock Lesnar must be scared of me, y’all. Alright, let’s make this very clear, I’m not leaving this ring until Brock Lesnar comes out here. I don’t blame him.

How could you blame him? I’m the greatest of all-time. Write it down, take a picture of it, Brock Lesnar fears me. I literally have been waiting here and it’s a no show. Why are you gonna run your mouth? Why does he run his mouth and then he doesn’t show up to back up his words? Why is this happening, Paul? I’ve given these people far too much time. The Tribal Chief shows up, he takes care of his obligation. Universal Champion shows up to SmackDown, takes care of his obligation, no show. There’s nothing else for me to do here. So do I, so do I, but Brock don’t want me because he’s scared of me, I told you this. I done smashed everybody, they’re all scared, don’t nobody want it anymore. So, Wichita, this is where we have to part ways. Wise man, tell Charlie to fire up the jet.

Make no mistake, Brock Lesnar’s actions were completely unacceptable, completely irresponsible. And not just the property damage, he endangered our crew, he endangered our officials, he endangered his fellow superstars. And worst of all, Brock Lesnar endangered the WWE Universe and that cannot happen. I cannot allow that to happen, not on my watch. Therefore, I have the unfortunate duty to inform all of you, that due to his actions tonight, I am indefinitely suspending Brock Lesnar.
