- Triple H discusses Brock Lesnar’s lawsuit
We get a video package that details the recent events between Hunter and Brock Lesnar, including Lesnar’s people ‘suing’ Triple H and quitting the company.
Hunter makes his way out to the arena, not wearing the brace on his arm that he’d been sporting recently. HHH makes his way to the ring to a huge ovation from the crowd. Michael Cole runs down a bit of Hunter’s history at No Way Out events in the past.
Hunter grabs a mic. He says he’s spent over half of his life in the ring. He did it because for the most part it’s the only thing he ever wanted to do. Also because he never wanted to get a real job. Ironically, here he is all these years later with a real job. A corporate job on top of it. In that job for the last five weeks since Paul Heymen brought two lawsuits against the company, he’s had to deal with a lot of crap because he’s not a corporate kind of guy. He says he’s an a**kicker, it’s what he does. So he came up with an idea. Paul Heymen said Brock wants to fight. And Brock says he’s not an entertainer, and he’s not a lawyer, but he’s a fighter, and he’s an a**kicker.
Hunter says the last time he saw Lesner in the ring, he jumped him from behind and broke him arm, but his arm is feeling a lot better, and in a couple more weeks, it’ll be 100%, and then he’ll be back in fighting shape. Hunter says that’ll bring them to right in the middle of Summer. He’s proposing they get rid of the lawyers, lawsuits, and legal junk. They get rid of the fat, balding manager. This is about Hunter and Brock doing what they do. They’re fighters, and Hunter wants to fight him. He wants to fight Brock bad. He lays out the challenge for Lesnar vs. HHH at SummerSlam. He says let’s do this.
Hunter says let’s fight, or he can be happy with being a quitter. Whatever works for Brock, but he’ll be waiting. Hunter drops the mic and heads to the back.
Daniel Bryan is shown warming up backstage. AJ walks in. Bryan says now is not the time. AJ says she’s not trying to distract him, she just needs to tell him that after everything they’ve been through, there’s still a part of her that hasn’t gotten over him, and she wanted to wish him good luck. She kisses Bryan on the cheek and walks away. Bryan smiles and goes back to warming up.
