- We go to a new video package with CM Punk and Paul Heyman. I haven't seen it yet, but the footage is likely from the CM Punk DVD. The video continues with the recent events and how the last few weeks have panned out with Brock Lesnar. This is likely the package they will show before the match on Sunday. WWE is so good at these.
