We see the footage of Brock attacking everyone leading to his suspension.
There is no mystery or cliffhanger here. The question was very simple. How did I negotiate Brock’s return to WWE? They don’t need his money. What they want from an unrepentant beast is an apology. Not in private or in writing. It is an apology in public, right here, right now, tonight.
Paul says that if Brock does not apologize to Michael Cole and JBL, he will not be allowed to return to WWE and he will not get his title match against Seth Rollins at Battleground.
Michael says it is not necessary but John says it is.

Paul says that his client has complied with the terms and conditions of his return to WWE. Paul asks if they have accepted his apology. Paul says that he would like to make a public apology in advance for what his client is going to do to that slinky, slimy, disgusting, repulsive, repugnant, rotten, sick, parasite Seth Rollins. The champion who won the title from the challenger. The golden boy of NXT, the first NXT Champion. He was protected in NXT by everyone. He was protected by the Shield and then the Authority. He sold his long term soul for the short term gain of winning the WWE World Title in 2015.
That was until the day the Authority decided to sacrifice the future of the WWE to the conqueror is what is BEAST for Business. Seth Rollins, on July 19th, you may think you are flying into Battleground in St. Louis, you have a one way trip, all expenses paid to Suplex City . . . Bitch. Those accommodations are not from Mr. McMahon and his billions.

After successfully defending his WWE World Heavyweight Championship against Dean Ambrose at WWE Money in the Bank, Seth Rollins confidently proclaimed himself the greatest WWE Champion of all time. However, at WWE Battleground, “the best” will finally have to go head-to-head with The Beast.
Rollins has unquestionably proven his mettle since cashing in his Money in the Bank contract during Brock Lesnar’s WrestleMania 31 match against Roman Reigns to capture his first WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Defeating the likes of Reigns, Randy Orton and most recently, The Lunatic Fringe, Dean Ambrose, in an awe-inspiring Ladder Match at Money in the Bank, there is no doubting The Architect’s toughness, or his knack for defending his title by any means necessary.
But amid all his victories and achievements over the past four months, one question has lingered : What would happen when The Beast Incarnate finally returned from his indefinite suspension?
The last time we saw Brock Lesnar, he was not in the greatest of moods. Furious over having his WWE World Heavyweight Championship “stolen” the night at WrestleMania, Lesnar invoked his rematch clause on WWE’s flagship show. However, when Rollins refused an immediate return showdown, the brutal Superstar exploded, attacking commentators and cameramen alike while paying no heed to the please made by his advocate, Paul Heyman. Subsequently, The Authority suspended Lesnar indefinitely for his actions, and he had not been seen on WWE programming since – until now.
The former four-time WWE World Heavyweight Champion seems as focused as he has ever been, still having not been pinned or made to submit since breaking The Undertaker’s Streak at WrestleMania 30. Lesnar will seek to continue that unwavering dominance against The Authority’s chosen one at WWE Battleground.
What will happen when these two Superstars collide? Can Rollins orchestrate the most monumental win of his WWE career by defeating The Beast and truly cement himself as the best that he WWE has to offer? Or will the Mayor of Suplex City conquer Rollins and firmly regain both the championship and his position atop the WWE Universe?

Triple H and Stephanie McMahon make their way to the ring.
Stephanie says that she wants to apologize for the actions of Kevin Owens against Machine Gun Kelly. Disciplinary actions will be taken because that is what is best for business. It is their job to do what is best for business for this global company. They are here to make the decision for Seth Rollins’ next opponent because that is what is best for business. Hunter says a lot of people who feel they deserve a title match against Seth Rollins. It will not be Joey Mercury. It will not be Jamie Noble. It will not be Kane. It will not be Dean Ambrose. Stephanie asks Hunter, who will Seth’s opponent be?
Seth Rollins makes his way to the ring. Seth says it does not matter who they pick as his next opponent because they have been right all along. There is no one on the roster who can beat him. Seth says he will beat the person announced as his next opponent. He will embarrass them and make Hunter and Stephanie proud.
Hunter says that you have proven since Wrestlemania. You have beaten Roman Reigns, you have beaten Randy Orton, you have beaten Dean Ambrose. Hunter says you have proven your point and you might say you never needed help. Stephanie says that without the Authority, some people think you are ripe for the picking. You have tested their patience.
Hunter says they have invested everything in the future and in you. There are times when you have to take a step back and look at the investment to determine if it is going to pay off or is it a loss. You put a lump of coal under great pressure. It can crumble and turn into dust. Or you can turn it into the diamond you always hoped it would be. Hunter asks Seth will you crumble or turn into the diamond they invested in. The pressure is on.
