In Ring Segment: Kurt Angle
Angle thanks all the superstars in the back for their hard work and dedication. One person who doesn’t fit that mold is the WWE Universal Champion, Brock Lesnar. Angle says he gave Lesnar and ultimatum and he has still not heard from Lesnar. Angle strips Lesnar of the Universal Championship. Paul Heyman comes out and introduces himself to the crowd. Angle says everyone knows who Heyman is. Angle says if Lesnar isn’t about to come out Heyman is wasting his time. Lesnar isn’t here. Angle starts to strip Lesnar of the title again but Heyman runs into the ring and tells Angle to hold on. Heyman says Angle and the WWE Universe has it all wrong. Everyone thinks Lesnar doesn’t care about being the Universal Champion and he only cares about being the UFC Champion. Heyman says that isn’t true. Lesnar loves being in the WWE and being the Universal Champion. Angle asks why Lesnar doesn’t show up. Heyman says Lesnar wants to challenge for the UFC Championship while wearing the WWE Universal Championship. Angle says if that’s Lesnar’s goal more power to him. Lesnar will defend the Universal Championship at SummerSlam or Lesnar will be stripped of the title. Heyman agrees.
Heyman congratulates every member of the WWE Universe. Their voices have been heard. They want more Brock Lesnar. They want more of the beast and conquer. It’s official Lesnar will defend at SummerSlam. The only thing left is to determine who will be beaten and victimized by Lesnar. Bobby Lashley comes out to the ring. Lashley says when he came back to WWE he had two goals in mind. The first he accomplished last night when he beat Roman Reigns. Lashley walks up to Heyman and says the second is to beat Brock Lesnar and win the Universal Title. Drew McIntyre comes out and says he wants a shot. That’s the reason he came back to the WWE. Phase one was making sure the Intercontinental Championship stayed on Dolph Ziggler’s waist. Phase two is winning the Universal Championship. Seth Rollins power walks to the ring. Rollins gets in McIntyre’s face. Rollins says it Angle is looking for an opponent for Lesnar Rollins is right here. Elias comes out and he wants a shot as well. Finn Bálor comes out and says since he was the first Universal Champion he should get the shot against Lesnar. Roman Reigns walks to the ring as he is showered with boos. Reigns says he doesn’t have any excuses and all he wants is to fight somebody tonight. Angle says they will have two triple threat matches. The winners of each will face each other next week for the chance to face Lesnar at SummerSlam.
