Smackdown begin live in Los Angeles with Sami Zayn making his way out to the ring while being pushed in a wheelchair with a cast on his leg and in a neck brace.
Zayn calls himself the toughest man in WWE history. Zayn says it took the two most dominant athletes in WWE history for him to be put in a wheelchair. Zayn says it’s weird that two guys who normally hate each other work together to ensure he did not become Universal Champion. Zayn says it was the betrayal from Lesnar that hurt him the most. Zayn says he has to do what is right and that he will sue Adam Pearce, Sonya Deville, the referee from last week, and basically everyone else involved in SmackDown last week.
Zayn is then interrupted by Paul Heyman who comes out to the ring and apologizes to the fans for being subjected to Sami Zayn. Heyman begins his usual introduction when Zayn interrupts to tell Heyman he wasn’t done talking. Heyman ignores Zayn and gives a promo on Roman Reigns. Zayn rises to his feet from the wheelchair and Zayn says he knows that Reigns is not here for SmackDown. Zayn says Heyman is here all alone and that wheelchair or not, Zayn will rip Heyman’s head off and without Reigns present, there is no one to save Heyman.
Brock Lesnar’s music hits and Lesnar makes his way out to the ring as Zayn immediately runs back to hi wheelchair and holds on to the medical officials with him. Lesnar grabs a steel chair and enters the ring.
Lesnar sits on the chair in the ring and Zayn cuts Lesnar off and tells him to shut his mouth. Lesnar apologizes for last week and then asks Zayn how bad he is really hurt. Zayn says that his pain is at 10. Lesnar asks Zayn if he really thinks he could’ve beaten Reigns last week and Lesnar says he did Zayn a favor last week because Zayn knows he was never going to beat Reigns last week. Lesnar asks where in Canada Zayn is from and Lesnar then proceeds to speak French to Zayn. Lesnar invites Zayn to go hunting with him in Saskatchewan and Lesnar gets up and starts pushing Zayn in the wheelchair. Heyman gets back in the ring and asks what the hell is going on. Heyman says three years ago this would’ve been an immediate trip to Suplex City and instead he’s watching two Canadian besties about to go moose hunting. As Heyman begins to hype up Lesnar, Lesnar immediately destroys Zayn’s male nurses and Lesnar throws Zayn from out of the wheelchair and hits an F5.
Back live with Lesnar interviewed backstage. Lesnar tells Kayla Braxton to ask his advocate Paul Heyman about his reason for being out there.
