    As usual, Paul Heyman does Lesnar's intro before the match. Before the ref can call for the bell, Braun Strowman's music hits and he marches down to the ring. He steps over the top rope and asks for a mic. The Monster Among Men says he refuses to cash in like a coward, so he will be at ringside until the match is done so his opponent knows he is cashing in right after it's over.
