WWE Smackdown Results
The show starts with a recap of Rollins and Lesnar from Raw. Seth Rollins comes out to the ring.
Seth: This past Monday on Raw, I marched down to this ring and did the unthinkable. Boo all you want, but I'm more of a man than anyone here! I called out Brock Lesnar! I gave him every opportunity to be a man and come to this ring, and get in my face like a man, and prove to the world that he's the beast everyone thinks he is. But in fact, Brock Lesnar proved to the entire world what he truly is, he is a coward! Brock Lesnar is a coward because instead of staring me in the eye like a man, he took his frustrations out on my brand new 2015 Cadillac CTS. And when Noble and Mercury went down to stop him, for their troubles Mercury got suplexed through the windshield and Noble got his arm snapped like a twig. It's not the car that bothers me, $56,000 is pocket change to me, it's what it represented. It's a gift I gave to my friends, my family, Brock messed with my FAMILY! At Battleground not only am I going to beat Brock Lesnar I'm going to humiliate him! *beeping*
A tow truck brings in the destroyed the CTS.
Paul Heyman: Ladies and Gentlemen, and you too Seth, my name is Paul Heyman, and I'm here to confess my sins because admittedly I am the advocate to the beast who did the damage to that car, the conqueror BROCK LESNAR. Now I could spew a bunch of facts like Seth Rollins is all alone in the ring right now, like he will be at Battleground when he LOSES to my client Brock Lesnar. Or a metaphor about how the damage done to that car is nothing compared to what Brock Lesnar will do to Seth Rollins at Battleground because he intentionally broke the 11th commandment, thou shall not intentionally provoke the beast. The truth is the metaphor that does apply the damage to that car does not compare to the damage that will happen to Seth Rollins, when Brock Lesnar takes Seth Rollins down, not to Hell, but to a far worse place called Suplex City.
Seth: What are you doing here Paul? You think that car is a metaphor for what I'm going to look like?
Paul: Yes I do in fact.
Seth: No let me tell you, that car is a metaphor for what I'm going to do to HIM at Battleground. You wanna talk about me being all alone? After Battleground, I'm going to make sure that YOU are all alone after I destroy your client! Do you forget who I am?! I am the architect, I am the man who destroyed the Shield, I am the man who cashed in Money in the Bank and took the title from Brock Lesnar. I am the man who reunited the Authority and left your client destroyed on Raw 2 weeks ago. So Paul, who do you THINK is going to be champion after Battleground.
Paul: I'm glad you asked actually. I'm very happy to answer. The person who leaves Battleground WWE Champion is the man who is going to have his foot on your chest as he raises the championship above your head as they declare a new REIGNING, DEFENDING UNDISPUTED CHAMPION OF THE WOOORLD....BROCK LE----
Seth: SHUT UP PAUL!! SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT YOUR MOUTH!! I've heard enough of your crap, the man who leaves Battleground as the Undisputed Champion of the World is SETH ROLLINS!

Bo: Oh Dean, after months of falling short of winning the WWE Worldheavyweight championship you look like you're in need of inspiration...and a shower.
