Brock Lesnar, Paul Heyman and Sami Zayn Segment 

Sami Zayn: My name is Sami Zayn and I am the toughest man in WWE history. Don’t judge it based on what you see right now. Judge it by what it took to put me in this state. It took two of the most dominant athletes in WWE history to put me in this wheelchair. It took both Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar to do this to me. Think about this, you don’t think it’s a little bit weird, two guys that can’t stand each other both work to make sure that Sami Zayn doesn’t become Universal Champion. I don’t want to call it a conspiracy, but come on, come on. I was robbed. You know what hurt? You know what hurt the most about what Brock Lesnar did to me?

It wasn’t just the German’s or the first F5 or the second F5, it was the betrayal. And now I have to do something about it. Now I have to do what’s right. Now I have to stand by my convictions. Now I have to sue. It brings me no pleasure, I have to sue. I’m going to sue Adam Pearce. I’m going to sue Sonya Deville. I’m going to sue the referee who rang the bell because that match shouldn’t have happened. I should still have my Universal Championship opportunity. I’m going to sue Roman Reigns. I’m going to sue Brock Lesnar. I’m going to sue Paul Heyman. I’m going to sue everybody that had anything to do with robbing me of my Universal Championship opportunity.

Paul Heyman: Ladies and gentlemen, I’m sorry you’ve been subjected to this spiel about suing and litigation, from of all people in the world, Sami Zayn.

Sami Zayn: You think I’m kidding around, Paul? That’s what you think, you think this is all a joke, you think this is so funny.

Paul Heyman: I don’t find it funny. You’re doing my people’s shitck. It’s my people that do the litigating around here. My people own entertainment in Hollywood to begin with. Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Paul Heyman.

Sami Zayn: Paul, I was not finished talking. I was not finished talking. And you’re blocking the camera, get out of my shot. You’re blocking my shot.

Paul Heyman: Shhhh! On behalf of your Tribal Chief, The Head Of The Table, The End All Be All, The Universal Champion, Roman Reigns, I am here this evening to tell you …

Sami Zayn: Paul, I don’t think you’re understanding what I’m saying, Paul. I said I wasn’t finished talking. And, Paul, I happen to know that Roman Reigns isn’t here tonight.

Paul Heyman: He’s on a one week sabbatical in the Island of Samoa, training for his Day 1 Match.

Sami Zayn: That’s right, he’s in Samoa, but you’re here, aren’t you? You’re here, all alone, Paul. And you want to disrespect me? Remember one thing. Neck brace or neck brace, wheelchair or no wheelchair, I am a world class athlete and I will rip your head off. Because Roman Reigns isn’t here tonight so there is no one to save you.

Brock Lesnar: How are you doing, buddy?

Sami Zayn: I’m not great, Brock. I’m not great.

Brock Lesnar: A wheelchair? A neck brace? Male nurses?

Sami Zayn: That’s funny, Brock? That’s because of you. That’s not funny. Shut your mouth.

Brock Lesnar: Sami, I think we got off on the wrong foot here. I think so. Listen, I apologize. I apologize for last week. Yeah, on a scale of 1 to 10, though, how bad does it really hurt?

Sami Zayn: 10! It’s a 10! And let me tell you something, Brock. The physical pain is a 10. My feelings, that’s like a 20.

Brock Lesnar: And I’m feeling you. Last week you said we were friends. Tonight you said we were friends, maybe. I thought we were. We’re both Canadians. Canadian Alpha Males. That’s right. Now, let me ask you a question. Do you really think that you could have single handedly beat Roman Reigns? I did you a favor. I did you a favor last week. Think about it, Sami. You were never going to beat Roman Reigns on that given night. You know that. You know that, Sami.

Sami Zayn: So you’re saying — I just want to make sure we’re on the same page here – that you were thinking two steps ahead and you injured me on purpose so that Roman Reigns’ victory over me wouldn’t really count?

Brock Lesnar: Exactly. You’re a smart kid. And speaking of, you said you were from Canada, but what part of Canada?

Sami Zayn: I’m from Montreal. Everyone knows that I’m from Montreal.

Brock Lesnar: Oh, Montreal. Well, Je Ne Sais Quoi. Come on. I’m trying to lighten it up here, Sami. What I’m trying to say is, from me to you, from one Canadian alpha male to another, I would like to invite you to Saskatchewan. Let’s get out of this place. Let’s go hunting. Let’s go fishing.

Sami Zayn: Actually, Brock, I’m vegan. I’ve been meaning to talk to you about this.

Brock Lesnar: Oh, come on, Sami. Sami, I think we should get out of Hollywood and go do something more fun and enjoying. Don’t you think?

Sami Zayn: Let me just think about it. Okay, we’re going. I really think we should talk a little bit more.

Paul Heyman: The hell am I looking at here? Oh, my god. I spent too much time at the dispensary and the adipose are kicking in. Three years ago, that would have been an automatic trip to Suplex City. And instead, I’m watching Canadian besties about to go moose hunting in freaking Saskatchewan instead of watching The Beast, The Conqueror, The Once And Most Likely Future Reigning, Defending Undisputed, WWE Universal Heavyweight Champion.
