“The art of war is simple enough. Find out where your enemy is. Get at him as soon as you can. Strike him as hard as you can and keep moving on”–Ulysses S. Grant

We were live in Long Island, NY, this week. Brock Lesnar is stalking Rey Mysterio.

Several cars showed up. Triple H got out first. Who else was with him?

Roll the opening montage!

The Skyflowers exploded to bring the crowd to their feet. Brock Lesnar’s music hit and he strolled out with Paul Heyman. Paul does not due pin stripes well. Brock wants Rey Mysterio. Paul did the typical intro thing. Paul really stuck it to the vanquished Cain Velasquez. Heyman reminded everyone that Brock quit Smackdown and moved back to Raw. His goal is to hunt down Rey Mysterio. Heyman talked about being a Jew and that helped him to set up Brock with a “No Fire” contract. That was uncalled for. Paul said Brock could do whatever the Hell he wanted to do. Paul said Brock was better than everyone at home or in the back. Heyman demanded to know where Rey is. Heyman said Brock was ready to slap every man in the house. Paul said no one was man enough to slap Brock back. Heyman took shots at Rey’s son, Dominick. Paul knew someone would “rat out” Rey. Heyman swore Brock would commit a felony against Mysterio. Heyman said tonight would be the funeral of Rey’s career. Brock adn Paul headed to the back.

The announcers warned Rey to get in his car and leave. Brock started to rough up people, backstage. Cut to commercial.

Brock kept going after people to find Rey. He went to one of the black cars and ripped the door off. He started pulling people out. He kicked the door of the car off its hinge. Ridiculous.

Vic, Jerry and Dio talked about how Rey embarrassed Brock.

We looked back at the NXT Invasion on Smackdown. Several Smackdown stars were taken out, including Bayley, The Miz and Daniel Bryan. It was an incredible night put together when most of Smackdown’s roster were stuck in Saudi Arabia.

Seth Rollins strolled backstage. He had something to say, next.

Rollins came out to a decent pop. He was slightly limping. Bray Wyatt beat Seth at Crown Jewel for the Universal title. Seth said he had to think what was next. Rollins knew that some fans were thrilled that Seth lost to The Fiend. Rollins did not care what he fans thought. Seth was more concerned that hte Unviersal title was now on Smackdown and Lesanr was now the champ on Raw. Seth said it was time for the new kids to get a chance, not these old guys like Lesnar. Seth was seriously doubting himself. What’s next for Seth? Rollins just didn’t really know.

Triple H then interrupted to make his appearance. The NXT logo splashed across the Tron. HHH said History was repeating itself. HHH said Seth’s past just might be his future. HHH mentioned that Seth was the very first NXT champ. HHH then talked about hte birth of the Shield. Every time Seth would come to HHH, Rollins’ star would rise. Seth wondered if this was just to boost HHH’s ego. “Does it matter?”. HHH knew that Seth had no clue what was next. Seth brought up the roster being stuck out of the country. HHH bragged out Adam Cole (Baby) beat Daniel Bryan. NXTX is on fire, acording to HHH. HHH said he did not come alone to Raw. HHH wants to know what Rollins would do next. Trip said NXT had something to prove. HHH was ready to motivate Seth, one more time. Trip said Seth was either withhim or agaisnt them. The Undisputed Era came to the ring. The “N.X.T.” chant rose to a crescendo. HHH wanted to know where Seth stood…with or against.

The O.C. came out to even up the sides. This should be a barn burner. The Era tried to take off but the O.C.. Other guys from NXT attacked. That brought out more Raw guys. The NXT crew made for the border. Seth didn’t get hurt or involved.

Is Seth about to jump ship?

Vic and Jerry discussed last week’s King’s (Divorce) Court. This Lana/Lashley/Rusev triangle is getting more and more disgustin. Lana is upset because Rusev only wanted her for sex. Lashley told Lana that Rusev cheated on Lana. Rusev snapped and beat the stuffing out of Lashley. He then stuffed his wedding ring into Lashley’s mouth. Low Blow by Lashley. Lashley and Lana then smooched it up. Disgusting. Rusev was heading to the ring to deliver a special challenge…next.

Becky Lynch was set to be interviewed. Charly talked about Becky vs Bayley vs the NXT Women’s champ, Shayna Baszler. It is being called the Dangerous Triangle Match. Becky knew both Bayley and Shayna had issues with Lynch. Shayna came in and asked Charly to let her take over. The NXT champ taunted Becky and brought up Ronda Rousey. She warned that she was NOT Ronda. Shayna said her target was set on Becky. She wouldn’t overlook Bayley but Lynch would be giving up at least one limb to her. Lynch wasn’t sure how she felt about hte upstart NXT champ. Becky said Bayley would almost be an after thought. This match should be awesome.

Luke Gallows, Karl Anderson and A.J. Styles came out for a six man match. Styles showed the trophy that belongs to his partners. Styles said they don’t give a damn about NXT. Styles was ready to be sure that the NXT guys never leave Florida.
