Paul Heyman introduces himself and he says that he knows you have been sitting on the edge of your seats to see the greatest combat sports athlete. Paul introduces the Beast of the Broctogon and the Viper Slayer . . . Brock Lesnar. Paul says on August 21st from the Barclays Center his client BROCK LESNAR will entertain you. Paul questions whether he advocated his client will entertain you? Brock’s form of entertainment is not the same style of entertainment they try to market and sell in the WWE. BROCK LESNAR’s form of entertainmetn is politically incorrect and . . . violent. Paul says he is not supposed to say that word but he is standing next to Brock Lesnar and he can say any damn word he wants to say. Brock is not here to put his stamp on the new era. He does not have to step up to the new era. The new era needs to step up to Brock Lesnar. Brock is not here to curry favor with Mick Foley, Stephanie McMahon, Vince McMahon, or any one in the locker room. That means Randy Orton. Paul asks Brock if he heard of Randy Orton. He is a third generation superstar. He is a twelve time WWE Champion. He possesses the great equalizer, the RKO. They say Randy is one RKO away from victory. They say if Randy Orton hits an RKO on Brock, Randy will shock the world the way that Brock shocked the world at Wrestlemania 30. Where does Randy Orton get these ideas? Maybe they are the voices in his head. Paul asks how many of these voices are telling you that Brock Lesnar is going to beat your ass at SummerSlam and drag you down to Suplex City. If those voices are not telling you that, those voices are full of mularkey. If your voices are telling you that and you are not listening to them, Paul asks Randy to listen to the wise old Jew. Randy Orton is going to beat your ass and drag you down to Suplex City. Paul says that they should take the victory out of the equation. Maybe they should talk about survival. Maybe you won’t go to the hospital. Maybe you will wrestle again in the year 2016. You will not get Brock in the position for the RKO.

Randy says SummerSlam won’t be his last match, but it also doesn’t have to be his first match back. Why not have his first match back tonight? Why not have that return take place against the Intercontinental Champion? Miz asks everyone if they want to see that match and after they appear interested in the match, he says no.

Highlight Reel with Chris Jericho interviewing Randy Orton
Big pop for Orton. He said for the last nine months, he’s been enjoying his time with his wife and his kids but returning to the ring made him realize what’s been missing – being out here in front of tghe people. He said that he’s enjoying it so much he doesn’t care that he has to share it with Chris Jericho. Jericho said he should be thanking him because Orton gets to make his return on the Highlight Reel with the best in the world at what he does. He said that just by being in the ring with Jericho, Orton’s being put on a different level. Orton said he’s in a good mood but that could change really quick. Jericho mocked the RKO out of nowhere and said that if Orton isn’t careful, he might get hit with a Codebreaker out of nowhere.
Jericho said he’s going to catch Orton up on what’s happened since he’s been gone. He reviewed the brand split and that Orton is going to Smackdown while he’s going to Raw, kissing up to Stephanie McMahon in the process. He said the WWE champion is a barbarian who put 69 tacks into his flesh. He started whining but said it wasn’t about him, but about Randy. He said he wanted to give Randy something that he needed to help him against Brock Lesnar at Summerslam – the gift of Jericho. Orton began knocking Jericho’s haircut, saying he thought for a second he was on the Ellen Degeneres show because of it. The fans chanted, “Ellen.” Jericho told the fans to shut up and warned Orton that Lesnar was a force of nature who was coming for Orton. He showed all sorts of footage of Lesnar. Jericho talked up what a badass Lesnar was. Orton said he asked for the match because what would it mean that after nine months, he came back and beat Fandango. That was a shot at Jericho, who once lost to Fandango at Wrestlemania.
Jericho said that was cute but Lesnar was going to kick Orton’s ass and take him to Suplex City. Orton said he’s well aware and he knows Lesnar is going to suplex him over and over to get to Suplex City but it only takes one RKO to get to Viperville “no enhancement needed.” Jericho said that something tells him Orton is going to pay for that little comment. Jericho said that Brock said that Orton has been avoiding him for 15 years, that he was a coward and was going to tear his shoulder apart. Jericho passed on that Lesnar said Orton was a stupid idiot. He mocked Orton and acted like Orton wasn’t going to do a “damn thing” to him. He told Orton to go worry about Lesnar and to stay out of his business. Orton teased a RKO but then acted like he was just kidding, then snapped it. Good segment. Orton looked the happiest he’d been on camera in a LOOOOOONG time.
