Recap of Brock Lesnar and Heyman starting Raw last week, talking smack about Rollins, and what will be happening to him going forward after provoking The Beast. J&J loved their car and showed it off, but Brock ended up destroying it with fire axes, again sending debris into the audience. Then Brock 'broke' Noble's arm. At the end Brock stood atop the car, looking like he did back in the day. They go on to show the car being crushed at the junkyard.
In Ring Segment
The red Caddy, after being crushed down, is sitting just below the stage, the top totally flat. Brock Lesnar's music hits, and out he comes with Heyman in tow. The fans erupt for him. Pyro, and Brock heads to the ring. Brock jumps up on the ring, Heyman up the stairs and in.
"Suplex City!" chants. Brock smirks. Heyman obviously loves it too.
Heyman – Ladies and gentlemen... (pop) My name is Paul Heyman, and I am the advocate for the Cadillac crushing, J&J conquering... (pop) I'm not done yet, who this Sunday night makes Seth Rollins pay for his sins, The Beast of Battleground, Brock Lesnar! (POP) I don't know about you, but my heart is pounding against my chest, because I cannot wait for Sunday when history is made again, an extraordinary opportunity to see this beast to see Brock Lesnar enter the ring a challenger! How many times have you seen Brock Lesnar a challenger? As a rookie he stepped into the ring as a challenger, victimized Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, and walked out WWE WHC. When Brock Lesnar went to UFC he stepped into the Octogon with Randy Couture, and walked out, once again, a Champion. Last summer at SummerSlam, Brock Lesnar walked into the ring as a challenger, what happened to the Champion, John Cena? Eat, sleep, suplex, repeat and Brock Lesnar walked out the Champion, and would still be the Champion today if not for that sneaky, slimy, revolting, disgusting, thief in the night, Seth Rollins. (heat for Rollins) This Sunday night, I don't beg or plead a lot, but I beg you, circle the date on your calendar, Sunday night, July 19th, Brock Lesnar will enter the ring the challenger, Brock Lesnar will not leave the ring the same way! (pop) Sunday night, Seth Rollins you are going to get beat up by Brock Lesnar! You're going to get your ass kicked by Brock Lesnar! You're going to be suplexed by Brock Lesnar. You're going to get F5d by Brock Lesnar! You're going to get pinned by Brock Lesnar! And when Brock Lesnar puts his foot on your chest, and the ref raises his hand in the air, the announcement will be, ladies and gentlemen once again, the reigning, defending, undisputed WWE WHC...
He's cut off by Rollins' music, who comes out with Kane in tow. Rollins glares at the Caddy. Rollins is seething! "Justin Bieber" chants.
Rollins – Real proud of yourself Lesnar. This makes you real happy, doesn't it? (pointing at the Caddy) This puts a smile on your face? Good! I can't wait for Sunday when I wipe that smile off your stupid face. Last week I gave you every opportunity to come out and conduct yourself like a man, but you acted like a coward. All that aggression, and you took it out on an inanimate object, and not just any innannimobject (sic). Blululululula (sic). Not just any inanimate object...
Everyone laughs at his verbal fumble, including Brock who is actually laughing in the ring.
Rollins – Shut up. (heat) That is a gift I gave to my friends, and I'm still shaken up about it, right now!
"Justin Bieber!" chants.
Rollins – What's worse than that is that you parade it around the country like a trophy, a symbol for what I will look like after Battleground. You can have it, because this is my symbol! (holds up the strap) That's the biggest separator between you and me. You see I am everything that's right about the WWE. I'm a real Champion. You're a thug, a criminal, a vandal. At Battleground, I will take a trip to Suplex City. I will bring the matches, gas, a burn Suplex City to the ground, Lesnar!
Brock – I can take you to Suplex City tonight, bitch!
Kane – Gentlemen! I understand the tensions are running high, and justifiably so, but I urge all parties to act calm. Tonight there will be a contract signing for Battleground. As DOO, it's my job to ensure it goes smoothly. I will not allow it to devolve into chaos. Brock Lesnar versus Seth for the WWE WHC is what's best for business. So, Mr. Heyman, if your client does ANYTHING before that match...
Heyman – Are you about to threaten Brock Lesnar? Brock, I think we're about to be threatened by the Undertaker's baby brother! I'm sorry, I apologize. Was I not supposed to say that?
"Baby brother!" chants for Kane. Heyman smirks at this.
Heyman – Come on, have some respect to the DOO. I know I was not supposed to mention that my client conquered Taker's undefeated Streak. I know I'm not supposed to talk about your family. I assure you, sir, this is a wonderful idea. Let me get this straight, my client, The Beast, Brock Lesnar in a contract signing, what could possibly go wrong in a scenario like that? My client, Brock Lesnar will come to that contract signing with peace, love, and understanding in his heart. Unless, Seth Rollins wants to violate the 11th commandment – thou shall not intentionally provoke Brock Lesnar. Because if you do, sir, I assure you, Suplex City comes tonight to Atlanta, GA.

In Ring Segment
Bellas and Fox in the ring, all in red and black.
Nikki – So, um, on November 23rd of last year, I defeated AJ Lee to become your Divas Champion. For the last 232 days, I've defended against every challenger, gave every Diva a chance and the definition of fearless. In this ring, on red carpets, reality shows, in movies, you name it, I am THE total Diva. And now, with my lovely sister Brie, and Foxy by my side. We are dominant. Us three are most powerful, because I have this.
Nikki raises the Divas Championship high in the air, and the other two pose on each side of her.
Nikki – Us three make the decisions in this Division, we rule it, and whether Paige, Naomi, or any other WWE Diva, none of them, and I mean none of them...
Steph's music hits and she comes out in a black, white and blue color blocked sleeveless dress with black shoes. Smiles all around in the ring.
Steph – I'm sorry Nikki, the way you were talking about the Divas Division, it made it sounded like your run the Divas Division, like you own the Divas Division, like you own the WWE. Let me be very clear, I own the WWE. The legacy the WWE leaves behind is on my shoulders, and that includes the Divas Division. Now you are right, Team Bella has been unstoppable. There hasn't been that level of competition I've been looking for, and I think the WWE Universe has been looking for. Let me tell you there is a revolution in women's in sport happening right now. Women's soccer, UFC, tennis. Women are making a mark and it's time for us to do the same and make a mark in the Divas Division right now! (pop) But I'm not going to do that alone. First, let me introduce the woman who is trying to make a difference, Paige!
Nikki – I don't even understand why Paige is out here! Honestly, how many times has Paige failed? How many?
Steph ignores Nikki as Paige comes into the ring.
Steph – Hang on a second here, Paige is out here because I want her out here. Now, things are going to change, starting now. I want this revolution here in WWE. Paige wants it, but courage can't do it by itself. It takes backup, but for some reason no one has been willing to stand by your side, but I know someone who is. I know someone who has had to fight, scratch and claw to get everything she has. Someone who's not afraid of the fire. Someone I'd want in a Fox hole with me! Joining Paige right now is Becky Lynch!
Out comes Becky Lynch! She's bouncing, running, and doesn't look injured! The fans are loving her! Paige and Lynch shake hands.
Steph – Now, I'm looking at this, you're still out numbered, there's three on Team Bella. So, joining Paige will be a woman who is bred for this business, someone who is high styling and profiling, someone who says she is genetically superior, Charlotte!
Out comes Charlotte, posting on stage, then heads to the ring, a walkover beside the ring, and then a split into a back rollup in the ring. Charlotte turns to stare down Team Bella, before shaking Paige's hand. Wooooooo! from many fans.
Steph – Woooooooo!
Before Steph can say more, Naomi and Tamina come stomping to the ring. On the way out, Naomi starts talking.
Naomi – Hold up, wait one minute! We got some unfinished business with Bella and Paige.
Steph – Naomi, I'm so glad you're out here.
Naomi – Steph, we're all the competition we need, so when are we finally going to get our chance around here?
Steph – You're right Naomi, you should be out here, and I'm glad that you are. You know what, there's someone else who thinks a lot like you are, someone who isn't afraid to step up, seize that opportunity and take that moment, someone who calls herself the Boss, the current NXT Women's Champion, Sasha Banks!
Sasha Banks comes out working her character, the way she always does. Banks into the ring and poses. She stands by Naomi and Tamina.
Steph – Let me ask you something Nikki, is this what you had in mind when you said you were looking for a little competition? I've set the table for opportunity, so who's going to take it?
Team Bella step right past Paige, Lynch and Charlotte, and at Naomi, Tamina and Banks. Paige, Charlotte, and Lynch step behind Team Bella. When Team Bella decide not to truly approach the first three, the turn to see that they are blocked from behind. "This is awesome!" chants.

Brie on Lynch from behind. Charlotte blocks Fox's scissors kick and locks on the SEXIEST back bend bridging Figure 4 I've seen in my life! Lynch with a hold on Brie. Banks back in and grabs Nikki with a code breaker, then locks on her own submission hold on Nikki. So it's all NXT Divas with holds on Team Bella in the ring.
Paige, Naomi and Tamina back into the ring as Team Bella leaves. "This is awesome!" chants. The six Divas in the ring argue as Team Bella are on the floor at the bottom of the ramp. Steph, on stage, a hand on her hip, nodding and smiling.

Ever since, Mr. Rollins, you sold your soul, so you could build yourself as the future of the WWE, they've (fans) wanted to see someone get their hands on you.

See, here's the problem, as I see it, Mr. Rollins, all the pressure is on you, six days away. This Sunday night, every single person watching Battleground, is paying to see you get your ass kicked. (pop) And I swear by my god of retribution, Brock Lesnar, everyone will get their money worth, because this Sunday at Battleground, you're going to get your ass kicked.

Heyman puts down the mic and tells Rollins to sign. "Suplex City!" chants. Rollins, all pissed, signs the contract, then slides it across the table. Brock smiles, signs the contract himself. Immediately Heyman is tweaking and yelling at Rollins.
Heyman – Hey, hey, hey, hands on the table! Hands on the table!
Rollins – Hey, look, I know you have a devious mind Heyman. I don't have a plan. Are you paranoid? Are you out of your mind? Are you...
Brock quickly flips the table as Rollins slides back. Brock pulls out an ax handle that was under there. Brock takes it, then flips the table back upright. "Suplex City!" chants. Brock slams the ax handle back down on Rollins' side of the table, and sits in the chair again, looking calm. Rollins slowly slides up on the table, grabs the ax handle and backs away, never taking his eyes off Brock. Brock continues to sit there, holding his chin with two or three fingers, a slight smirk on his face.
Suddenly, Brock stands up, lifting the table as he goes, and in one fluid motion, flips the table on its side and slams the top of the table into Rollins. Shoulder blocks on Kane in a corner. Rollins attacks Brock from behind, but Brock quickly turns and hits Rollins with a release German. Rollins flies through the air and takes the move beautifully, one of the best I've seen one of Brock's release German's taken. Brock then clotheslines Kane from the ring. Kane lands on his feet and grabs Brock's feet, pulling him from the ring. Brock makes quick work of Kane, so that when Rollins launches himself from the ring, Brock is there to catch him. Brock turns, right into a big boot from Kane. Rollins and Kane work Brock over outside the ring. As Kane removes his jacket and tie, Rollins uses the ax handle on Brock. Brock into a barricade, then Rollins sends Brock flying into the stairs Kane is holding. Kane then hits Brock with the stairs again. Kane pulls Brock up, and sets Rollins up for what looks like a curb stomp, but Rollins is actually setting up for a pedigree.
Brock is too strong, and sends Rollins flying back into the barricade. Brock turns back and launches himself at Kane who catches him for a chokeslam, but Brock counters and Kane takes an F5 to the floor. Rollins sees that Brock is coming for him, so he flees the area. Over the barricade and through the crowd, almost taking Heyman out in the process. So Brock returns his attention to Kane. Brock sets up Kane's ankle on the bottom set of stairs, and grabs the top part. The way he's holding the stairs, he has the V toward himself, so rather than hitting Kane's ankle with the flat of the stairs, Brock actually slams the corner of the stairs down next to Kane's ankle, then bounces the stairs in the opposite direction. With the camera angle, it looked great. If I hadn't known what I was looking for, I would really think Kane's took the stairs flat on his ankle. Kane rolls on the floor holding his lower leg, not at all the area that the stairs would have landed on if they'd actually touched him – another major indicator that Brock did a great job with that move.
Brock back into the ring and grabs the WWE WHC. Brock poses with the strap above his head, and gets some solid pop for it. Rollins is way back in the crowd, but not in the stands, watching Brock in the ring with his strap.
Video recap of the high points of Brock's attack on Kane's ankle. They go to video of Rollins watching Kane taking the stairs shot and sells his shock to it in a huge way.
Rollins back into the ring and starts throwing the table, then the chairs. The chairs go flying from the ring.
Rollins – From day one Lesnar, you came in here and thought you were untouchable. You ran through everybody. You ran through John Cena, Taker, Reigns, but you didn't run through me! At WrestleMania, I took this title from you because I am better than you! In six days, at Battleground, I will do what no other man on this earth can do Lesnar. I will prove again that you are not a machine, not a monster, a man with a pulse and you can be beat! I will rip that stupid sword tattoo right off your chest. I will cut you in half Lesnar, and I will be forever know as the man who slayed The Beast! Me! Me!
Quiet heat for Rollins, but more people are focused on Kane being tended to.
Rollins – This was your plan Kane? This was your big plan to get rid of Lesnar, huh? How'd that work out for you, huh? Like your whole career has worked out for you, a big disappointment! You are nothing without me Kane!
Kane is lolling on the floor, rolling around to sell his pain.
Rollins – You are nothing without me, and guess what, you're without me, so now you're nothing! I told you if this didn't work out, it was on you. Look at us Kane, how's it working out, you piece of crap? You never was, you wannabe Hall of Famer. How's it working out? Well, it's on you!
Rollins starts leaving, the turns back. Rollins over to stomp Kane's ankle, then leaves the area. Kane starts rolling around again, really selling his pain.
Divas getting "This is awesome!" chants
