Heyman takes the mic and tells Reigns that they have a problem, Brock Lesnar. Heyman says the problem is that Lesnar has one chance left and that when the beast is backed into a corner, that is when he is most powerful. Heyman says we need to see the most violent Roman Reigns if he wants to put down Lesnar for the 10 count in his final title shot.

The Bloodline is interrupted by Theory’s music hitting, where Theory runs to the ring, runs all the way around the ring and back up the ramp and Theory then holds u the briefcase with a smile on his face.
