In Ring Segment
Brock Lesnar to the ring with Heyman in tow. Brock jumps up on the apron, pyro from all four. Brock then paces around the ring as Heyman grabs a mic. "Suplex city!" chants.
Heyman – Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Paul Heyman, and I am the advocate for the 9th mayor of Suplex city, Brock Lesnar. It's come to our attention that Rollins and his band of merry men thinks he's still in Japan. That shows that you can put a title on anyone, and at the end of the day there's some dumb schmuck Justin Bieber wannabe that lucks into the WWE WHC. Let me spell this out so someone like Rollins can get it. You're going to learn that Brock Lesnar is the lord, by god, hallowed be his name. Brock Lesnar is not a god of love, of family, of charity, of forgiveness, he's the god of violent retribution! And that violent retribution will come at the expense of Rollins and anyone with him. I assure you that this is the sword that will pierce his shield. Let's take a look at history when Brock took the Streak from Taker. (heat) Don't boo the Advocate. Brock didn't have respect for Taker, but didn't disrespect him either. He conquered it. When Brock took John Cena to Suplex City, Brock didn't have respect for Cena, but didn't disrespect him, so he conquered him. When he showed Reigns what a brutal beating was as WrestleMania. Now, Rollins, my client harbors disrespect for you. You broke the 11th commandment, you intentionally disrespected Brock! Rollins didn't just provoke you once. At WrestleMania he cashed in. he didn't just do it twice, slimming out of your rematch the next night and got suspended, but three times when they all piled on the Beast who was still breathing and still alive, salivating for revenge against Rollins. My job is to see you that on July 19th, my client, Brock Lesnar will get his hands on the reigning, defending, undisputed WWE WHC, Seth Rollins and will take the Championship back! The title match might take place there, but the beating and suplexes begin tonight! They will take place at the altar of the beast, the city hall of Suplex City in Chicago, IL! My client has heard that Rollins will be here tonight.
"Suplex city!" chants.
Heyman – Since Rollins will be here, my client isn't going anywhere. Someone better tell the Champ there's a Seth slapping, Rollins busting, back breaking beast of Battleground, Brock Lesnar!

Trip on his cell.
Rollins – All around the town boys.
Trip – How's that car treating you? Love the upgrades. I need to talk to Seth.
Rollins – Talk to you later boys.
Trip – Love that car. What you planning to do about Brock Lesnar tonight?
Rollins – That's why we came in here. With Kane out, and Jamie still busted up with his ribs, you got any advice for me?
Trip – My advice is to walk out of Battleground as WWE WHC at all costs.
Rollins – I got Battleground in the bag, I'm talking about tonight.
Trip – Since you have Battleground in the bag, conventional wisdom would be that you just ignore, as you have the advantage, let him stew, let him boil, let him make a mistake at Battleground. That's not how Brock Lesnar opperates. You need to do the unthinkable, the unconventional, something no one will expect and, if you think about it Paul Heyman gave you the template for that tonight in the 11th commandment.
Rollins – Never intentionally provoke the Beast. Intentionally provoke the Beast. I have to call out Brock Lesnar. I have to call out Brock Lesnar, the last thing anyone will expect me to do. Bring him to the ring and do what we did to him two weeks ago. Show him what fear is all about.
Trip – Yes.
Rollins – Show him what it is to doubt.
Trip – Yes.
Rollins – Show him why I'm the man, why I'm the WWE WHC! I'm calling out the Beast!
Trip – Yeah Seth, show him. Show him.

"We want Lana!" chants from the fans, neither Summer Rae or Rusev look happy about this.
Rusev – I give you Summer! I will apologize for wasting a year of my life on that snake, blonde headed witch of a Lana that called herself woman.
Rusev – And I won't apologize for all you stupid Americans for taking her under your wing, and now loving her like she never did anything wrong. And I won't apologize to the little, pathetic Dolph Ziggler, I won't apologize that I put myself as low as him. That man is clearly not on my integrity level, my aggression, and strength. And honestly, I'm better looking and more passionate.

Rollins – Triple H and Steph McMahon chose Brock Lesnar to be my opponent at Battleground because they know what you all need to understand. I am the man, and the undisputed future of the WWE. I've been proving it over and over and over again. The latest time was two weeks ago, reuniting The Authority and leaving Brock Lesnar lying in this ring like a whimpering dog. I conquered the Conqueror, I set fire to Suplex City, and at Battleground, I will burn it to the ground. Brock Lesnar is yesterday's news. That neanderthal cannot thank with a thinking man's Champion.

"Suplex City!" chants.
Rollins – Chant that all you want. I'm the Architect. I'm the man who destroyed the Shield, I reunited The Authority, I cashed in at WrestleMania in the main event and beat Brock Lesnar to become WWE WHC. There's nobody else on planet earth who can beat Brock Lesnar. At Battleground I'm walking in with this, and walking out. Earlier tonight Paul Heyman mentioned something about the 11th commandment and not provoking the Beast. Brock, here I am, and I'm wondering, are you the Beast everyone says you are?
"Justin Bieber!" chants.

Brock says something to Heyman – telling him to stay back? And Brock heads down the ramp. Rollins and J&J are ready, wooden handles in hand. Then Brock smirks and backs up the ramp – that really isn't a ramp this week, or the car couldn't have driven over the way it did. Rollins is all smiles, then Brock motions for something. Heyman rolls an anvil case fire kit over and opens it for Brock. Out comes a black handled fire ax. Brock pulls out another black handled fire ax, one over each shoulder.

If that's the case, have no fear, the Champ is here! (mixed) Which means you will get a Championship match tonight on Raw. (mixed) I've had a lot of wonderful moments in this building, in front of an always raucous crowd, and it will be my please to make another tonight.

US Championship Match – Cena (c) vs Cesaro
They are about to start the match, but Cesaro's music hits! Cesaro comes out, dressed for the ring, mic in hand!
Cesaro – Hey Kevin, nobody wants to hear you stand out here and whine about losing the NXT Championship. (pop) And if you need to do anything, you need to step aside, because if anyone deserves to challenge for the US Championship, it's not you, it's me. See, last week on Raw, I had Mr. Never-Give-Up ready to give up. The only reason I'm not standing here as US Champion today is you. Because you were jealous that I was about to do what you haven't been able to. You couldn't do it before, you can't do it at Battleground, and that's beat John Cena for the US Championship. So, if you don't get out of this ring now, you won't just have a problem with John Cena, you'll have a problem with me.
