John Cena, LA Knight and The Bloodline Segment
LA Knight: Let me talk to ya.
Paul Heyman: Ladies and gentlemen. Alright, this is starting to become a weekly lesson, my name is not booo. My name is Paul Heyman. And I have a reputation for decade after decade of always spotting the next big thing in this industry. I see them coming from a mile away. I know who the next megastar is going to be. And, ladies and gentlemen, admittedly, a bit out of character and with all candor, the next big megastar in this business is going to be LA Knight. God, I hate when you do that. And, sir, that’s to your credit.
You are on a roll right now. You have all the momentum in the world. You, sir, have earned my respect and my admiration. Man, that really pisses me off and Jimmy, too. And, Solo, you’re lucky he doesn’t care because, you know, with all respect and admiration, sir, that you’ve earned from me, that’s to your credit. Mazel Tov. My compliments to you, sir. And also, unfortunately, LA Knight, my condolences, because now that you’ve earned my attention, The Bloodline is going to have to do something about it.
LA Knight: Are you done running your fat jowls yet? You come out here and told me everything that’s great about me and I appreciate that. It’s a wise move, Wise-Man, to put respect on my name. But let just check my receipt really quick. I didn’t buy any of your BS. Because here you are, out here spewing this nonsense.
Jimmy Uso: Shut your mouth.
LA Knight: I know you’re not talking to me.
Jimmy Uso: Oh yeah, I’m talking to you, LA Knight. Listen, we haven’t been properly introduced, my uce. I’m, HIM, Jim Uso. With The Enforcer, Solo, alongside The OG, and we’re out here to tell you to your ugly face, you ain’t making it to Fastlane.
John Cena slides into the ring before The Bloodline can jump Knight in the ring. Heyman convinces The Bloodline to get off the apron.
LA Knight: Boys, boys, you guys were all excited for a fight, but I get it, you didn’t have permission from your little chief to come out here, did you? I’ll tell you what. Here’s how we’ll do this, everybody is talking about John Cena LA Knight, they’re talking about The Bloodline at Fastlane tomorrow night, but I’m thinking about tonight. And what I’m thinking about for tonight, Jimmy Uso, Little Wannabe Tribal Chief, since you want to talk so tough, I’ll tell you what. How about me, you, later on tonight, so I can punt your ass to the moon. And you can learn, once and for all, who’s game this is, with everybody saying, LA Knight, YEAH!
Jimmy accepts Knight’s challenge, and Heyman is not happy about that decision.
