Triple H shows a SummerSlam poster on the big screen with Lesnar and says Lesnar can be the face of the promotion. All he has to do is step up and agree to the fight. Triple H says Lesnar will go down as the guy who is scared of Triple H if he doesn't go through with this. Heyman says Triple H is good, he almost had him going. Heyman wants Triple H to stop pretending to be a wrestler and the ass kicker he used to be.

Heyman says he is ahead of Triple H and knows what he's going to do ahead of time. Heyman says Triple H has met his match. Heyman says he can read Triple H from a mile away.
