Kevin Owens gets a promo where he talks about what Seth Rollins has put him through and how he doubted himself, but at WrestleMania when he jumped off the sign and got the win, he got his answer— yes, it was all worth it. But now it’s time to move on to bigger and better things, and what is that? Is it time to be the prizefighter again, or should he root out the Seths of the world?

Highlights of McIntyre/Lesnar
We see footage of Drew McIntyre being interviewed about twenty minutes after his win last night.
He says he hasn’t had a chance to do anything because he’s not sure it’s real. But he took the time to get his side plates changed so he knows he’s not dreaming. He’s gonna start with the match, and he wants to thank Paul Heyman. During the match he was physically, mentally, and emotionally ready, and he saw that Brock Lesnar was ready to go to war.
There was a point where Heyman told Brock to keep hitting the F-5 because Drew wouldn’t get back up, and at that moment his life flashed before his eyes. He never surrenders, and he stopped getting hurt and started getting angrier. He didn’t give a damn that it was Brock, he was gonna Claymore him as much as it took, and now he’s the champion.
BIG SHOW IS HERE!
He gets on the mic and congratulates Drew on his victory and becoming WWE Champion, and now there’s an entire locker room coming for him. Show says he’s not challenging him for a title shot at Money in the Bank or at a later date, but right now, ding ding ding ring the bell bitch, let’s go! Drew begs off and says he’s not fighting right now, and Show says he’s just some punk flapping his gums.
He doesn’t see McIntyre angry, all he sees in his eyes is fear. Drew says this isn’t his first day, he’s not afraid of him, and he knows he’s got a Scottish temper but he’s gonna put it slow and simple— there is nothing Show can say that will convince him to fight tonight. BIG SHOW SLAPS HIM ACROSS THE FACE!

WINNER & STILL WWE CHAMPION: DREW MCINTYRE
