Samoa Joe and Kevin Owens are shown discussing the rules of the fistfight tonight, with Joe saying they have nothing to worry about. Big Show then appears and shows the size of his fist, telling KO there’s no need to worry about rules.
BROCK LESNAR ARRIVES
Paul Heyman tries to give the usual introduction to the show, but due to fans booing the two of them get out of the ring and stand on the ramp instead. Heyman tells the fans that Brock doesn’t suck (as they are telling him that he does), and they get back in and go through it all again.
Heyman recaps the Royal Rumble announcement that they made last week, with Heyman saying there’s a streak going on about his spoilers. He says there all about Brock Lesnar matches and that they all come to life because they are enabled by Brock Lesnar.
Heyman then begins mentioning the word truth a lot in regards to his spoilers, which leads to R-Truth making his way out to the ring. Truth says he is glad Paul called him out here as he saw something on the TV about Royal Rumble, saying that Lesnar might be the favorite, but his childhood hero John Cena taught him to never give up.
So Truth announces that he will be in the Royal Rumble match. Truth says it’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog. Truth says Lesnar might be a big man, but he knows he will go flying over the top rope…Paul Heyman.

Heyman points out that he’s not in the Rumble match, it is Brock Lesnar. Truth then says “My bad,” and says that for the first time ever, he is officially undeclaring himself from the match. Truth says he doesn’t like spoilers and he doesn’t want Brock to take him to Sioux City.
Truth says he has one question for him… “What’s up?” He then dances around doing this theme song but he then gets levelled by Lesnar who destroys him with an F5. Lesnar then tells him, “that’s what’s up.”
WWE 24/7 CHAMPIONSHIP SEGMENT
R-Truth is then helped to the back by officials up the ramp, but he is taken out by a big boot from Mojo Rawley who pins him to become the 24/7 Champion.
We are shown an interview from earlier today as Bobby Lashley and Lana arrived in the building. Lana points out how everything was ruined at their wedding, so they have made two New Years resolutions. Their first is that everyone is jealous of their love, and the second is that they will crush Rusev.
