Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman come out to the ring.

Heyman said that it is an indisputable fact that Brock took The Undertaker to suplex city and Brock locked the Phenom in a kimura. They played footage of Taker tapping to the kimura. Heyman understands how it feels to have a fairytale to end. He said that the reality is that last night The Undertaker got tapped out by Brock Lesnar. He says that the referee didn’t see the tap so he doesn’t blame the referee. He said that he doesn’t blame the timekeeper either. He said that the timekeeper had compassion. Heyman said that The Undertaker collapsed last night and it’s all over the internet. Heyman calls Taker the aging gunslinger but he can’t shoot with Brock Lesnar.

Bo says Brock passed out last night but the good news is that he woke up and he had a sweet dream that he actually beat The Undertaker. He tells Brock that he can make dreams come true if he BOLIEVES. Brock laughes and clotheslines Bo and suplexes him. He suplexes him again. Brock grabs him and suplexes him a third time. Fans start chanting for Brock to do it again so Brock does it again…4 suplexes. Lesnar and Heyman walk up the ramp but Heyman suggests a 5th suplex. Brock walks back to the ring and grabs Bo and hits 5th suplex. Brock and Heyman leave but Heyman asks for one more so Brock turns back around and goes back in the ring. Brock nails Bo with a 6th suplex. Heyman says “BROCK LESNAR BOLIEVES!”
