— We start off with a graphic In Memory of Black Jack Lanza.
— We are live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA, as Sami Zayn makes his way to the ring… by wheelchair. We take a look at the way that Brock Lesnar manipulated Sami Zayn into getting destroyed by Roman Reigns last week on Smackdown instead of at Day One.
Zayn introduces himself and says he is the toughest man in WWE history, don’t judge it on what you see right now, but what it took to put him in this state. Zayn says it took two of the most dominant Superstars in WWE history to do this to him. Zayn says isn’t it weird how two guys that can’t stand each other worked together to make sure he didn’t win the WWE Universal Title. He doesn’t want to call it a conspiracy, but come on… he was robbed. Zayn says what hurt the most wasn’t the first or second F5 from Lesnar, but the betrayal.
Zayn says now he has to do something about it, he has to do something right, he has to stand by his convictions… he must sue. Zayn gets more boos as he goes on about suing Sonya Deville and Adam Pearce, the referee, Reigns, Lesnar, Paul Heyman, everybody who had anything to do with robbing him of his Universal Title opportunity. Heyman interrupts on the mic and comes out apologizing about how we’ve had to listen to this spiel on suing and litigation from Zayn. Heyman says Zayn is doing “his people’s shtick” because “his people” run the show. This is another reference by Heyman to his Jewish heritage. Heyman goes to do his usual introduction but Sami interrupts, saying he’s trying to talk and Heyman is blocking his shot. Heyman goes on with his introduction of The Tribal Chief, but Zayn says he wasn’t finished talking. Sami says he also knows Reigns isn’t here tonight. Heyman says Reigns is on a one-week sabbatical, training for WWE Day 1 on The Isle of Samoa.
Sami is up out of his wheelchair now, threatening to rip Heyman’s head off. Sami and his nurses back Heyman into the corner. Sami says Reigns isn’t here tonight so no one is here to save Heyman. The music interrupts and out comes Lesnar to a huge pop. Lesnar is wearing overhalls, and laughing. Sami and his nurses stand guard. Lesnar grabs a steel chair from ringside, smashes the announce table with it, and walks around the ring as Heyman looks shocked.
Lesnar takes the chair in the ring and sits it up. He takes a seat but gets up to get a mic as a “Suplex City” chant breaks out. Lesnar asks how Sami is doing. Sami, who is now back in his wheelchair, says he’s not great. Lesnar laughs at the wheelchair, the neck brace and the male nurses. Sami says this all Lesnar’s fault. Lesnar goes on but Sami tells him to shut up. Lesnar says he thinks they got off on the wrong foot. Brock apologizes but wants to know how bad it really hurts on a 1-10 scale. Sami says it’s a 10 on the physical scale, but his feelings are hurt on a 20. Lesnar says he’s feeling Sami. Lesnar baits Sami into thinking there might be a chance of a friendship here. Lesnar asks Sami if he really thought he could beat Reigns. Lesnar says he did Sami a favor but Sami doesn’t agree. Lesnar says Sami was never going to beat Reigns that night and Sami knows it. Sami asks if Lesnar really beat him up so that Reigns’ win over him wouldn’t really count. Lesnar says Sami is a smart kid. Lesnar asks Sami what part of Canada he’s from, and he says Montreal, so Lesnar speaks some in French. Sami says they don’t talk like that.
Lesnar says he’s trying to lighten tings up, from one Canadian to another. He invites Sami to Saskatchewan so they can go hunting. Sami says he’s vegan and he’s been meaning to talk to Lesnar about… Lesnar says come on, let’s get out of Hollywood and go do something more fun. Sami says that’s not a bad idea. Lesnar starts to wheel Sami away in his wheelchair. Heyman comes from behind with a mic and asks what the hell is he looking at here. Heyman says he must’ve spent too much time at the dispensary and the edibles are kicking in. Heyman says three years ago this would’ve been an automatic trip to Suplex City but instead he’s watching Canadian Besties about to go moose hunting in Saskatchewan. Heyman goes on with one of his typical introductions, hyping Lesnar up, and refers to Lesnar as the likely future, reigning and defending WWE Universal Champion… Lesnar suddenly snaps and destroys Sami’s two nurses, tossing them out of the ring. Heyman exits the ring as Lesnar stares Sami down, seething now. Lesnar attacks Sami and sends the wheelchair flying as well. Lesnar levels Sami in the middle of the ring with the F5. Lesnar’s music hits now as Sami sells the attack on the mat. Heyman watches from ringside. Lesnar stands tall and makes his exit, stopping on the stage to look back at the ring.
