Paul Heyman is in the ring with Brock Lesnar
Paul Heyman talks crap about Jinder Mahal, suggesting that he’s nothing compared to all of Lesnar’s other challenges. He says that Lesnar has conquered the most stacked heavyweight roster in WWE history, while Mahal has barely made it out of each pay-per-view with the WWE Championship.
Heyman tells Mahal that at Survivor Series, “you’re going to Suplex City.”
Heyman reminds the audience the last time Lesnar faced a SmackDown superstar, he broke every rule and regulation of WWE’s PG Era. Heyman emphatically accepts Jinder Mahal’s challenge at Survivor Series.
