1. When will Lesnar cash-in MITB Briefcase?
Cut to Brock Lesnar backstage, smiling sheepishly. Kofi Kingston makes his way to the ring. The replay of Dolph Ziggler attacking him is shown. Kofi starts on the mic- Kevin Owens reinjured Big E’s knee and Ziggler attacked him. But Ziggler has failed since he is still standing. He dares Lesnar to cash in the briefcase on him. Seth Rollins’ music hits. Rollins tells Kofi that he also wants to know who Lesnar wants to cash in on. And since both the champions are here, he asks Lesnar to come out. And out comes Lesnar with the ‘beastbox’ and dances like crazy. This is fun.
Both Rollins and Kofi’s music hits one by one and Heyman also tries to get in the act by mimicking to play guitar. Rollins is not impressed and walks backstage. Heyman says that they were going to announce whom Lesnar was going to face, but Rollins leaving the stage has resulted in them not announcing their decision. Kofi runs behind Lesnar but Dolph Ziggler attacks him from behind and slams him on the steel ramp. Xavier Woods comes to the aid of his New Day buddy as Ziggler retreats.

He was setting up the chair for a stomp when Kofi runs out with a chair himself. Ziggler runs away.
As we return from the break, Kofi and Woods are still in the ring. Ziggler now appears on stage and cuts a promo. He says Kofi has been wasting his time on worrying about Lesnar cashing-in his contract when he has to worry about him at Super Showdown where the two will face off. He has been defending Kofi in front of others and praises Kofi, but says it should have been him holding the WWE title.
