- In Ring Segment With Roman Reigns: Reigns is pissed about Paul Heyman insulting his family on RAW and says he will defeat Brock Lesnar, to win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at Wrestlemania. Mark Henry returns to WWE and interrupts Reigns. Henry says Lesnar will hurt Reigns and Reigns needs to learn respect. Reigns tries to ignore Henry and leave, but Henry grabs Reigns' arm and then shoves Reigns. Reigns hits a "Superman Punch" on Henry and then spears Henry through the outside barricade. Reigns walks off and says he WILL beat Lesnar, BELIEVE THAT!
- Backstage, Mark Henry says Roman Reigns made a believer out of him, he doesn't know if Reigns will beat Brock Lesnar, but Henry now believes in Reigns.
