He also later appeared in WWE and even took a Powerbomb from Randy Orton through a table.

The heart of the matter

During the interview, Arquette's friend revealed that he was looking forward to Roman Reigns' match with Brock Lesnar for SummerSlam.

Hearing this, Arquette jokingly asked if Lesnar was going to show up, referring to Lesnar's absence from WWE for most of the time that he has held the Universal Championship. He went on to say,

"I hope it finally happens. It's been long enough, Brock!"

The interviewer, jokingly suggested that Arquette was calling out Lesnar, to which he laughed before going on to say that he would "take one more Suplex City that John Cena took."

What's next?

The Universal Championship Match is set to take place on SummerSlam, where Roman Reigns will meet a vicious Brock Lesnar for the title on the 19th of August.
