On who he thinks will win tonight at No Mercy when Brock Lesnar defends the WWE Universal Championship against Braun Strowman:

EB: These are tough because the left side of my brain knows what I want to happen but the right side of my brain knows what will probably happen. So, I’ll give two answers. The left side wants Braun to win but the right side thinks Brock will.

NH: I think your left side may be correct. I think Brock may go away for a little bit and he can come back and win the belt back from Braun.

EB: I hope so because he needs a refresh. Brock is an amazing guy but, eh, kind of one dimensional. There’s just no depth to him as a character and that’s not a knock because he doesn’t need a lot of depth in the role that he is in. The more I see of him the less interesting he becomes. I don’t care what kind of a beast he is or what his credentials are and all that stuff that everybody knows. Everybody knows he could kick the ass of anybody in the world. That doesn’t really matter if he’s not that interesting as a character and he’s not really that interesting as a character in my opinion.
