Last night’s WWE Raw SuperShow results from the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh.
Triple H is walking backstage with his arm in a brace and he walks into John Laurinaitis. The Raw General Manager tells him that he didn’t know Lesnar was going to attack him a fortnight ago and says that it was painful to watch Lesnar beat HHH up, humiliate him and break his arm. Laurinaitis says Triple H has his support and sympathy. Triple H just stares down at Laurinaitis and says he is about to tell the whole world how he feels and wishes Johnny Ace luck in his match with John Cena on Sunday.
HHH comes to the ring and says he is not concerned over his physical injuries sustained in Lesnar’s attack but he is offended by Lesnar’s remarks about bringing back legitimacy to the company. Triple H says the day before Lesnar returned he was standing toe-to-toe with The Undertaker and that Lesnar’s arrogance not only offends him but also the likes of Shawn Michaels, John Cena, Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan, Randy Savage, Bob Backlund, Bruno Sammartino and every other wrestler who has ever walked down that isle.
HHH says he was slightly embarrassed to initially buy into the Lesnar crap but that he soon found out Brock was a quitter. He quit when he just started to be challenged in the WWE, he quit when winning wasn’t so easy. He quit UFC after he got his ass kicked just a bit. He says Lesnar quit WWE when he failed to beat John Cena.
Finally Lesnar quit when his contract demands weren’t met. Lesnar’s music interrupts and Paul Heyman comes out along with a lawyer.
Heyman says Lesnar’s contract agreement is an open and shut case. His client entered into an agreement with John Laurinaitis on live TV and HHH tearing it up was a breach of contract. Heyman said Triple H brought a fighter into the entertainment company and didn’t like it when Lesnar wanted to fight. The lawyer serves Triple H the lawsuit papers and Heyman explains that Lesnar is suing the WWE for the millions of dollars they owe to him. Heyman says that Lesnar was disappointed on a personal level because he expected much more from HHH than the sniffling, conniving, corporate ant that hasn’t lived up to the hype that has surrounded him.
Triple H then grabs Heyman by the neck and backs him against the ropes. As HHH leaves, Heyman says he just screwed up yet again and now has another lawsuit to answer for, assault and battery. Heyman says he will see Triple H in court!
