Despite Shane McMahon’s blockbuster announcement, no one seems to be surprised that Brock Lesnar was Nitro’s first pick, especially the RAW audience who start to boo Brock Lesnar before he even has a chance to make his appearance. Finally, “The Next Big Thing” appears alongside his companion, manager and legal advisor, Paul Heyman. Despite all the boos and jeers they receive, their morale doesn’t deprecate in the slightest as the huge grins on both of their faces convey the fact that they couldn’t give a fuck about what the audience thinks. Paul Heyman walks a little bit faster than Lesnar so that he can get to the ring first. When Lesnar climbs up the steel steps, Paul Heyman opens up the ropes for Brock Lesnar to climb through. Shane McMahon just stands by in the corner of the ring while Paul Heyman asks for his microphone. Heyman doesn’t even waste any time trying to get under the collective skin of the WWE Universe as he attempts to talk over their deafening boos.
“Ladies and gentleman, etch this date in your memories. Strain every cognitive fiber of your brain tissue to record this magnificent event for the sake of future recollection for this event is one which your children, both living and unborn, will instantly be gratified just by listening to it retold. Waste none of your time, not even in the quantity of seconds, fiddling with your smartphones except if it is used for recording this grand occasion. Bask in the ever omnipotent, illimitable, formidable, ambrosial presence of the future of the WWE as he graces the ears of his captive audience in his inaugural speech as WWE Nitro’s first ever superstar. Patrons, command your attention, your respect and your reverence for this man, this timeless inspiration of class, sagacity, willpower and dominance…Brock…LESNAR!!!”
Heyman passes the mic off to Brock Lesnar who just stares at the crowd while he does so. He allows himself to bask in the hatred from the audience for a couple of second before he raises the microphone to his lips.
“Go ahead and boo me. Go right ahead. You see, right now, you realize it. You realize that right now, in this very moment, I’m finally going to be able to take back what’s mine. Under a new brand, new management and above all else, a new regime, I’m finally going to get the goddamn respect and glory that I’ve been deprived of ever since I came back into the WWE. Even with someone like Paul Heyman by my side, no one was giving me the chances to make a name for myself. Torchbearers for this company like Bruno Sammartino, Lou Thez, Gorilla Monsoon, Hulk Hogan, Shawn Michaels, Stone Cold Steve Austin and even John Cena are considered to be the greatest superstars of all time because theyw ere given the opportunities to sell out the most popular global venues in the world and captivate audiences around the world. If someone were to look back at these people’s careers, most of them would think that if they were held back or given the short end of the stick that it’d be a crime because they deserved all the recognition and fame that they received in their careers and anything less than what they got would be a disgrace. Well, I don’t know if you people know this or not but I’m the best damn wrestler of all time. No one in any era before my time or even after I’ve retired will be as great as I am. So ask yourself this; if it’d be a crime to hold back all of those great legends, how much more do you think it’s a crime that I’ve been humiliated and deprived since I’ve started my career here in the WWE?
People like me are hard to come by simply because of how great I am in the ring. Even before I came here, I was an NCAA Division I Heavyweight Champion. Then, I went on to beat The Rock for the WWE Championship and became the youngest WWE Champion of all time at the age of 25. I’d go on to hold that belt two more times while winning The King of The Ring AND the Royal Rumble along the way. When I felt discontent about my place in this business, before I left, Vince McMahon and every single one of you should have gotten on your knees and begged and groveled in an attempt to get me to stay. You should have done whatever I asked and how I asked for it to be done because I am your biggest asset and greatest entertainer and like I’ve said before, if I hadn’t left the WWE, the likes of John Cena and Edge would be carrying my jockstraps and making me sandwiches with the snap of my friggin’ finger because none of them were at my level while I was at the top and once I left, their careers skyrocketed. It’s a goddamn fact. I was so important that me leaving had to force the WWE into investing their profits on a couple of ham and eggers just so they could stay afloat and become relevant. But despite all that, it hasn’t paid off. Ratings have been declining and the relevance of the WWE plummets because they isolate themselves from the rest of the social world and because no one takes the current crop of WWE main eventers seriously because when they saw Brock Lesnar, a 290 pound man, doing Shooting Star Presses off the top turnbuckle every week, they were entertained. People would come from miles around just to see me compete because they didn’t keep their butts in their seats for just anybody. They came for me. Not even guys like Hollywood Hogan or Stone Cold could garner more attention than myself but despite that, I’ve been blatantly getting screwed lately while the only thing everyone does is turn a blind eye to it or just think it’s funny that I’m the victim of the WWE’s biggest conspiracy of all time. From dumbass referees to bad booking, I’ve been getting absolutely nothing of substance or worth that fits all of my accolades and just when it seemed that I was on my way to the top, where I belong, along comes that beer bellied, wife beating bastard, Stone Cold. And then, he has the audacity to come along and try to get in my face and stir the pot just so I could get lured into having a match with him just so I could get screwed again? Hell no. That’s when I decided to quit. But I never said I was going to quit the WWE. No, no, no. You all just got duped. You see, Shane O’ Mac and I have been talking ever since that fiasco at Wrestlemania. Unlike everyone else, he knew talent when he saw it. He knew that I was the man who was going to carry this business and he knew that there was no one on the WWE roster that he wanted for Nitro more than me. So I gave him my list of demands; access to the private jet, a salary raise, more interviews…you know, what I deserve? And he was more than happy to give me what I wanted. So, after Paul Heyman looked over the contract and gave me the thumbs up to sign, I was Nitro’s first official superstar. Now, I’m practically guaranteed to get the respect I deserve. Now, is a whole new chapter for my career because after a decade of being spat on, I get treated like a king and will be able to solidify my legacy in the history books. No one’s going to give me anymore crap. From here on out, I get to show everyone why I’m The Anomaly. No one, whether they like me or not, will deny of respect and you can boo all you want but like it or not, things are looking up for me. So I don’t care who else gets drafted over to Nitro. Bring them on because to me, they’re just fodder, pawns that will play a small role on my road to glory and there’s nothing that you people can do to stop it from happening.
Be warned, WWE. Anyone who gets drafted over here is essentially getting sent to the gallows and try to screw me out of what’s supposed to be mine and you’ll get more than just broken arms and a shattered ego. Bank on it.”
Brock Lesnar drops the microphone and exits the ring with Paul Heyman trailing close behind him as the WWE Universe looks on.
*With Brock Lesnar now backstage after being announced as Nitro's first draft pick Teddy stands up from behind his Raw table, with a mic in hand and begins too speak!*
TL: Now Shane listen up playa! I had a feeling Brock was going too be your first pick tonight and i'm okay with that.. You see as good as Brock Lesnar is.. controlling him was always difficult and thankfully I know longer have too do that!
TL: Now my first pick is for a man who.. I think it's save too say I have not always agreed or got along with, but he's a man who is clearly one hell of a talent and will no doubt be a future hall of famer, however.. far more important then that he now holds something which Raw can not lose.. so my first draft pick of the night is.... WWE Champion! Chris Jericho!
JR: Chris Jericho! The WWE title is staying on Raw where it belongs!
King: Very clever pick from Teddy Long Ross, plus Chris Jericho is staying on Raw too? I think I can deal with losing Lesnar now!
*Chris Jericho swaggers out in a suit, WWE title on his shoulder, cracking a smile as he goes. The crowd boo him profoundly but he doesn't care one single bit as he enters the ring, and grabs a microphone, he then settles in the middle of the ring as he begins to speak*
