Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman kicked off this week’s show. Brock Lesnar won last night’s men’s Money in the Bank match, without having ever been announced as a participant.
The crowd booed Lesnar and Heyman out of the building, but Brock had a giant grin on his face the whole time. Heyman stated that Kofi and Seth should be paranoid because Brock Lesnar could cash in whenever he wants.
Universal Champion Seth Rollins interrupted and marched down to the ring. Seth stated that he is out here trying to be a champion that inspires people. Rollins challenged Brock to cash in the briefcase right now.
Heyman told Rollins that Lesnar will cash in whenever he feels like. Heyman then joked that Rollins should know what waiting feels like since he waited around for 7-hours at WrestleMania for his girlfriend to main event WrestleMania. Paul then added that Brock might want to cash in on Kofi Kingston.
WWE Champion Kofi Kingston joined the party and came down to the ring. Kofi shouted “wild card!” to no reaction from the crowd and apologized to Rollins for interrupting him. Kofi said that he was out here trying to establish his legacy as WWE Champion and challenged Lesnar to a match.
Heyman pointed out that Rollins and Kingston were both auditioning to have a main event match with Brock Lesnar. Paul noted that is because Brock Lesnar is a box office attraction. Heyman finished the promo that Brock Lesnar will be around tonight and could cash in at any moment.
