We are back and it is time for Brock Lesnar to make his way to the ring with Paul Heyman. Brock does the Brock Bounce on the stage before heading to the ring for the Lesnar Leap onto the apron.

Paul Heyman introduces himself and mentions that this is your main event of the evening. He has the right to say that for he is the advocate for the beast of Wrestlemania . . . Brock Lesnar. The very same Brock Lesnar who can guarantee you every year, the Wrestlemania Moment. The same Brock Lesnar who gave you the greatest Wrestlemania who broke the streak. The very same Brock Lesnar who will walk into the ring with a certifiable lunatic named Dean Ambrose in a No Holds Barred Street Fight.

Paul wants to talk about a No Holds Barred Street Fight. What is a No Holds Barred Street Fight? It means anything that Dean Ambrose can get his hands on, he can use with malicious intent and malice aforethought against Brock Lesnar. If Dean can get his hands on a chair, he can use it against Brock. If Dean can get his hands on a crowbar, he can use it against Brock. If he can get his hands on a kendo stick, he can use it against Brock. It is all perfectly legal.

Now we have these legends like Terry Funk and Mick Foley. They are giving Dean things to get his hands on against Brock. A barbed wire baseball bat. A chainsaw. Paul says shooting from the hip, the only reason Terry Funk and Mick Foley are still alive is that God does not answer his prayers on a daily basis.

The people who should be praying are the fans of the asylum praying for Dean’s well being. Anything Dean can get his hands on, Brock can get his hands on too. Brock can get his hands on Dean Ambrose. When his client wraps his arms around Dean’s torso, clasps his hands and takes Dean to Suplex City and ends the torture with an F-5, at that moment, the WWE Universe will realize the most dangerous weapon implemented in a WWE match is Brock Lesnar himself.

Paul looks at his watch and he says he is finished a little early. Boston is through hearing him flap his gums and his client is a little itchy. Paul tells Dean to get his tuchus out here because his client wants a fight tonight.

Dean Ambrose does not come out, but the Wyatt Family makes its way to the ring.

Brock with a clothesline and he hits Dean with the kendo stick before Brock breaks it over his knee. Brock gets Dean up and hits an F-5.

We go to credits.
