Henry wants to shut up Rusev. Brock and Cena will be face to face tonight on Raw!
In Ring Segment
Heyman in the ring to serious heat, though some pop.
Heyman – Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Paul Heyman, and I am here this evening to give you a preview for NoC. First, coming down the aisle will be the former Champion, and you'll hear his music (imitates Cena's music in a very silly way), and he'll take the ring and the children will scream, 'Let's go Cena!' And then down the asile, The Beast Incarnate, the reigning WWE WHC, Brock Lesnar! (heat) You can boo all you want, Brock Lesnar, will give you a whole lot more to boo about Sunday, because if you think the beating John Cena took at SummerSlam was vicious...
Cena's music cuts Heyman off. Smiles and salute on the stage, then runs and slides into the ring to mixed reaction. He sucks it all in.
Cena – I know this is a little cliché, but I don't see him. Where is the one in 21-1, where is Brock Lesnar?
Heyman – Well, Mr, Cena, that all depends on your definition of the world where, because where is a relative term, and according to the legal definition of the term...
Cena – I told you last week that I was showing up for a fight. (small pop) I'm either gonna fight him, or I'm going to fight you.
Heyman smiles like a hyena.
Heyman – You really want this? I mean me, personally, as a businessman, I'd like to entice them to spend $9.99 on the WWE Network, but you want to give it to them for free. John Cena, if that's what you want, that's what you'll get, right here, the Dr. of Thuganomics versus The Beast Incarnate, Brock Lesnar, here comes the pain!
Heyman points up the ramp, Cena is ready, then Heyman laughs. Cena is not impressed.
Heyman – You're good. Really, Ladies and gentlemen, he's really good. Those who haven't heard, I thought it would be on the internet by now. My client flies on a private plane, because my client, Brock Lesnar doesn't like anybody, especially you. No disrespect from me, all from him. In modern aviation, there's delays. He will be here, but you know what I think John Cena, I think you knew Brock's plane was delayed and you called him out because you knew he wasn't here. You had me fooled, you play this hero character better than anybody in history, I applaud you sir.
Heyman starts to leave the ring, but Cena grabs him by the scruff (flab) of the neck. Heyman screams in pain, and he's just an advocate.
Cena – You know what I think? I think you're full of crap. Here is what I know, seven days ago I gave you 24 hours to produce The Beast Incarnate because I was coming for a fight. (Heyman says he hurts.) Oh, you hurt? Give or take 80 minutes, The Beast Incarnate doesn't show up, that means it's halftime, and your number is up. No The Beast Incarnate, simply put, I'm gonna kick your ass.
Heyman – Okay, I'll let you know when Brock gets there, thank you very much.
Heyman from the ring, letting out a deep breath, trying to bring his blood pressure down as he heads up the ramp, but Cena is from the ring, and in front of Heyman.
Cena – Not to say that I don't trust you, but I don't trust you, and they want a fight tonight. So all I'm going to do tonight is make sure they get one.
Cena with a side headlock on Heyman, drags him up the ramp and out, as Heyman screams and wimpers the whole way.
King says he bets Heyman peed a little. Cole talks about the main event last week on Raw. Recap of Reigns taking a beating in the cage, then the curb stomp from Rollins. Rollins, Orton and Kane standing tall over Reigns in the cage.

Video of Rollins turning on The Shield.
Renee – Tonight you finally have your opportunity to face Rollins, a man who not only turned his back on you, but also tried to end your career. How do you feel going into this match tonight?
Reigns – Two years ago I came in the WWE with two brothers, now I stand alone, one versus all. Seth Rollins wants to take credit for all I've done, all I've accomplished? We all know that's a load of crap. Seth is always so smart, always has a game plan, everyone's got a plan until they get hit in the mouth. My game plan is simple, I'm going to ball up this fist and hit him in the mouth as many times as I can until my knuckles bleed. Believe that.

Renee – Please welcome Randy Orton. Last week, seemingly out of nowhere, you did this.
Video of Orton attacking Jericho last week backstage.
Renee – Why did you attack Jericho.
Orton – Why wouldn't I attack Jericho. A few weeks ago he said I've been handed everything here in the WWE and that's simply not true. It didn't help that Jericho has worked twice as hard to get half as much as I have. One thing that is certain, at NoC, Jericho will have one thing handed to him, courtesy of Randy Orton. That would be the beating of his life.
Khali in front of John Cena's locker room door.
Cena – (Something to Khali in his native tongue.) Paul Heyman, paging Paul Heyman! It's showtime!
Heyman – No, no, John, be reasonable!
Cena – I'm reasonable, come on!
Cena drags Heyman to the ring, Heyman is begging.
Cena – Ladies and gentlemen, my name is John Cena! And now is the moment you've all been waiting for. It's time to watch the great Heymandini, the one behind 21-1 is going to magically make a beast appear, (Heyman tries to flee, and Cena stops him) or John Cena is going to magically use his fists and make Paul Heyman's teeth disappear! Everyone waiting Paul, produce your beast!
Heyman – So everything about hustle, loyalty and respect is a sham, isn't it? This is the John Cena I've been trying to get out of you for weeks. Last week I told you to take your aggression out on them. You're right and I'm wrong, you won't turn your back on the Cenation, that won't be the trigger, ever. Me, I can be the trigger, to beat a beast you have to become a beast, and that hatred has to be deep inside. I have to be the one to bring it out. You won't hit me, that would make you a bully. You know my client's plane is legitimately delayed, and you're going to take it out on a 49 year old father of two, no. Brock Lesnar is a bully, and you won't be Brock, which is why John Cena, you can't beat Brock Lesnar. I thought your hatred for me would let the beast come out, but this whole role model thing, you really believe it. So I'll give you a chance. Let it out Sunday, and you will be the WWE WHC. This is the precipice of a whole new John Cena, just like I told you last week, and will give you your chance, hit me John Cena, let it flow, let it out! Why don't you say it? The Champ is here! You can't, and my guy took it from you. That my time is now! You can't, that Brock Lesnar took it away from you! Your mother and father raised you better (very true), to live a code. That code is hustle, loyalty, respect, and it will stop you ever time, dead in your tracks. You can't even hit me, and we all know I deserve it. John Cena, you're gonna fail this Sunday, you're never gonna be the WWE WHC again. You can't beat Brock Lesnar...
Cena takes the mic.
Cena – If there was ever a human being on earth that deserved his face rearranged, it is you Paul Heyman. You are the scum of the earth, you are a waste of oxygen.
Heyman – Hit me. One time. Let it flow John. My vision of you as a Paul Heyman Guy!
Pop that grows into "YES!" "YES!" "YES!"
Cena – No. No. I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I planned this whole thing because I thought for one second that you would produce Brock Lesnar and we would fight, and I would show these people that I'm ready for NoC this Sunday. But there is no beast, it's just you, an old, washed up, scumbag, has been who doesn't deserve the dirt off of my hands.
Heyman – I'll give you credit Mr. Cena, you're doing the right thing by walking away, but if I were your mother I would be very proud of you, if my son were born with a set of testicles.
This stops Cena who was getting out of the ring. Cena turns, rushes Heyman, and pushes him over, out of the ring.
Cena (off mic) – Don't talk about my mother.
Brock Lesnar's music hits, and out he comes wearing the WWE WHC around his waist. Cena glares right through Brock Lesnar as he comes down the ramp, around the ring.

Back over to the ramp, Brock by the stairs. Cena is still in the ring, waiting. Brock on the bottom of the ramp when he laughs at Cena. The fans are pissed! "Cena!" chants from women and children.

Heyman takes the belt and Brock on the apron. Brock into the ring and Cena on him. Brock behind Cena, lands one easy German, and Cena is in a heap. Brock kicks Cena from the ring. Brock is all cocky, but then Cena is back, taking the fight to Brock. They land outside. Brock face first to the apron, then to the barricade. Cena on top of Brock outside, on top of Brock with blows. Cena all over Brock as guys rush out to stop them. Brock scurries away as Cena is held back by at least a dozen guys.
"Let them fight!" chants as Brock leaves, holding his jaw, checking his nose.
Cena (off mic, but yelling clearly) – See you Sunday Brock.
JBL yells that Brock's nose is broken (sounding very JR). Cena is now released and goes to the ring to pose, not at all after Brock who is backstage with Heyman.
Steph is in Shape magazine.

Tom – Please welcome my guest at this time, Mr. MITB Seth Rollins. Seth, right now let's take look back at Raw.
Video of the attack on Reigns on Raw.
Tom – Seth, does the same fate await Roman Reigns tonight?
Rollins – Tom, what do you think? Don't answer that. Of course it does. I don't want to take anything away from Roman Reigns, he's one of the most gifted Superstars in the history of the WWE, but Roman Reigns is nothing without me. You heard the guy earlier, talking about beating me until his knuckles bled, that's the kind of barbarian we're dealing with here, and the only reason his knuckles will be bleeding is because he's a neanderthal. He walks on his knuckles. Check it out. (squats down, putting on monkey noises, then a dumb voice) I'm Roman Reigns. I'm so strong. I'm so dumb I'm going to pound Seth Rollins into the ground. (back to vertical) Roman Reigns is part gorilla, part Samoan, and part, rhinoceros. You know a rhinoceros is one of the most powerful animals in the world, the problem is, they're not... very... smart. I've said it before, and I'll say it again. It's brains over brawn every single time. I made Roman Reigns, I'm responsible for everything he's done in the WWE, and tonight I take away everything he could do in the WWE. I'm the future WHC, and me, me, not Roman Reigns, I am the future of the WWE. Believe that.

In Ring Segment
Cole – This Sunday at NoC will write another chapter in the story between USA and Russia. The man standing for America, the World's Strongest Man, Mark Henry!
Henry to the ring, many little flags in the audience. "USA!"
Cole – You've represented the USA many times. Lana and Rusev have made it very clear, they have absolute disdain for the USA, how does that make you feel?
Henry – It makes me angry, what do you think? In 1996 I had to withdraw from the Olympic Games due to injury. It was a dark time for me, I lost a lot of sleep. ("What?") To this day it haunts me. ("What?") But to this day there's this thing called second chances. ("What?") And this is mine! ("What?") Michael, (Pulls him in close, with an arm around him.) don't be afraid. Michael, come NoC I'm gonna shut Lana and Rusev, and if anybody in here loves America the way I love America. And you waving those flags in America, and in this arena, I promise you, I won't, no I can't let you down!
Cole – Ever since this challenge was made, social media has been on fire. People saying that you're a different man, a fire lit under you, however Lana has used social media to disparage the USA. In one tweet, she said the USA has no freedom of speech, that the USA is made up of a bunch of hypocrites, that the USA is a losing cause, that the USA is rumbling down before us.
Henry – Lana wouldn't be able to say all those things if she didn't live in America. If she lived at home in Russia, she shouldn't be afforded the luxury to spout that garbage.
Rusev's music cuts Henry off.
Lana – Mark Henry, shut up.
Henry – Why don't you send Rusev down here to shut me up?
Lana – It is comical that you speak of education, when all you speak is propaganda. (When did Henry speak of education?) In Russia, the one thing we subscribe to, is the one thing Americans avoid, the facts! Since America's intelligence is declining faster than President Obama's approval rating, yes, this is true, Rusev and I have prepared visual aid to help you understand said facts. Mr. Henry you forgot to mention that you participated in the 1992 Olympic Games. Oh, maybe this is because you fell there also? Mark Henry failed in the 1992 Olympic Games and Russia prevailed! Yes. So please rise and show respect for Russia's gold medalist, Aleksandr Kurlovich.
Pictures of Kurlovich on the tron.
Lana – Admit it, Mark Henry, you simply, in 1992, your confidence was shot then when you witnessed the superiority of Russia's Olympians. This is why you cited an injury in 1996, so sad.
King – If Henry doesn't shut her up, I'm going to have to give it a go.
Lana – Deep down you knew then what you know now, you reek with inferiority compared to Russia's finest and greatest athletes.
JBL – Mark, stop this!
Lana – Just like your President Obama cowers in fear when he hears the name of Mother Russia's greatest leader Vladimir Putin. (up on tron) History will repeat itself at NoC when you fail to the super athlete, Rusev!
Henry – Listen, I wanna make a pledge to each and every one of you here in Lafayette, LA, and all the American from coast to coast in the country, but right now I want to make a pledge. I pledge allegiance to the flag, of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands...
Rusev in and attacking Henry. Henry backed into a corner with blows. Rusev pumps up, and Henry comes out to toss Rusev off. Rusev comes back with a superkick. Rusev rolls Henry over and tries to lock on the accolade, but Henry fights back. Henry to his feet and free. Henry plants Rusev to the mat in a huge way! Henry then tosses Rusev from the ring.
Henry grabs one of the flags from the corners, and waves it in the ring.
