- We go to a prerecorded, produced promo from Brock Lesnar. He says Punk is a joke and that he never liked him. Lesnar says the only reason he let Punk exist all this time is because of respect for Paul Heyman. He says Punk takes beginner's MMA classes and thinks that makes him tough. Lesnar says he is the beast and the best.
