Paul says his job is to hype you on the fact that we are six days away. You have the rare opportunity to see a once ever athlete and fighter at his prime and do his thing at a level that not one single member of that locker room can hope to achieve. In every equation, there is one exception to define the rule. There is one idiot, dreamer, fool, lunatic.

Paul says he will give Dean all of the credit in the world, but Brock will not. Dean is crazy like a fox. Dean thinks if he can take an NCAA and UFC Champion out of his comfort zone and use these WEAPONS because they are legal. Dean has the chance to be that next star when he steps into the ring at Wrestlemania against Brock Lesnar. The bad news for the members of the Asylum, Dean Ambrose has to step into the ring with Brock Lesnar.
