ST. LOUIS, MO - Triple H called out Brock Lesnar to answer his SummerSlam challenge, but Paul Heyman once again responded to The Game instead. After Heyman told Triple H that Brock would not face him at SummerSlam, things got personal when Lesnar’s representative referenced the WWE COO’s children.
Angered by Heyman’s remarks, Triple H’s wife Stephanie McMahon came out to ringside and tore into the former ECW owner, claiming that he was just trying to cover up for his numerous failures as a businessman. WWE’s Executive Vice President of Creative continued her verbal assault on Heyman, calling him a parasite, and slapped him right across the face. The slap triggered Heyman to accept The King of Kings’ challenge on Brock’s behalf, but Stephanie wasn’t done crossing the line, as she unleashed a flurry of blows on Heyman before Brock emerged to intervene.

Lesnar lifted Triple H off his feet and drove him hard into the turnbuckle. Back and forth, Brock and The Game traded fierce punches and knees before Triple H clotheslined the former UFC Heavyweight Champion straight over the ropes. Their fight was over for now, but their tempers were just beginning to reach a boiling point. At SummerSlam, there will be nothing holding back these high-adrenaline warriors from tearing each other apart.
