Bobby Lashley’s music plays and he makes his way to the ring with MVP.
Bobby says it is an honor to finally stand in the ring with you and share the spotlight. From one superathlete to another, it is good to look you right in the eye and, with all due respect, for twenty years, you have been ducking and running from me.
Brock says with all due respect, it is an honor to be in the ring with me. Brock apologizes because for the last 20 years he has been winning championships in this ring and other rings. That doesn’t fall on me. That falls on you. I don’t have a clue who you are until I met you at Day 1. It is your fault you didn’t climb into the same level of success as me. If we had already met, I would have already beaten you and we wouldn’t be here. With all due respect.
Brock says that MVP and Lashley are dressed really fancy and he asks what is the thread count. Bobby says when he beats Brock at the Royal Rumble and you start your career as a stand up comedian, we will be sitting front row because you are money.
Brock has a knock knock joke for Paul and Paul is shocked. Who is? Bobby. Bobby who? Exactly! Brock tells Bobby it is impossible to beat Brock Lesnar and it is even more impossible to beat Brock Lesnar when you are a Brock Lesnar wannabe.
Brock heads to the back and Bobby Lashley looks at Brock from the ring while Benjamin and Alexander suddenly attack Lashley from behind. Lashley fights them off and clears the ring of Benjamin, then spikes Alexander into the mat. Lashley goes to ringside, scoops Benjamin and rams him into the ring post. Lashley grabs Alexander and launches him into the barrier, then runs him into the ring post. Lashley and MVP make their exit with Alexander and Benjamin laid out.
Riddle is in gorilla position and he is trying to summon the Viper. Randy Orton shows up and Randy tells Riddle he needs to focus. They lost to Alpha Academy last week because you didn’t tag me in. We have a second chance but the stakes are higher. The titles are on the line. Randy tells Riddle if he needs any help and he pulls out a marker and he writes Tag In Randy on Riddle’s hand.
