Seth Rollins responds to Sting backstage with Stephanie. Stephanie has to stop Steph and agree with Sting that Seth is not half the man Triple H is. Seth gets insulted and demands his statue, so Steph tells him to go ask Sting for it.
Back to the arena and its DOLPH ZIGGLER making his way out with Lana as he gets ready for a SummerSlam rematch against Rusev! MACHKA FOR EVERYONE!
Lana and Ziggler do Instagram photos. Lana should really let her hair down more. Damn.
Here comes RUSEV, with Summer Rae.
Ziggler has a dark Brutus Beefcake look going for him tonight, while Lana has an almost "Smoking Gunns Sunny" look. Not complaining.
Pretty funny exchange between Cole and JBL. JBL claimed we don't know the story between Lana and Rusev, so Cole jumped on his case letting him know we all say it play out starting with WrestleMania then the following night on RAW on live television. JBL got quiet.
Man, Rusev is owning Ziggler this round. Hardly any offense from Ziggler.
Rusev goes for the Accolade, Ziggler slips out and goes for a superkick, Rusev blocks, Ziggler spins and catches Rusev in the ZigZag. Ziggler goes for the pin but Summer Rae runs in for the DQ, which brings in Lana and its a catfight. Unavoidable panty shots everywhere as Ziggler picks up Lana which allows her to hit Summer with a dropkick. They head up to the stage and make out, while Rusev looks on in anger.
Later tonight: Ryback takes on Big Show with the Intercontinental Title up for grabs.
Sooooo..... Ziggler leaves his interview with Rene and heads to his locker room which is in camera shot. Rene hypes up the show and we see Summer Rae "sneak" into Ziggler's locker room as she appears to never notice Rene or the cameras fixed right on where she is. Riiiiiiight.
Time for the Divas Beat-The-Clock challenge! Nikki Bella shows us "The Bella Tron", which is a countdown clock to when she will become the longest reigning Divas Champion.
Becky Lynch is out first and she faces Alicia Fox.
Becky Lynch manages to get the submission win at 3:21. Charlotte and Paige must beat that time to face Nikki Bella at Night of Champions. Crowd was really quiet for this match, and it wasn't out of respect.....
We get a really good interview from Ryback about nothing could keep him down...and its interrupted by giggling, to which the camera pans around and sees Summer Rae giggling and running away, then to Ziggler dashing out of his locker room wearing nothing but a towel and appearing embarrassed and surprised as he nearly drops his towel. JBL says Ziggler has some explaining to do. So they're really going to go this route? *sigh*
Here comes The Big Shoooooow, and The Big Guuuuyyyyyyy Ryback. Commercial!
Back from commercial and Ziggler is pleading his case to Lana, who just can't seem to buy his story. She walks off.
DAAH~! Here comes The Wyatt Family. Anyone else getting a Dungeon of Doom feel for this group, with Bray being Kevin Sullivan?
I wonder how Erick Rowan fits into all of this now that Braun is wearing the sheep mask...
Braun speaks~! He says this isn't the beginning, its the end, it is the Apocalypse.
Here comes Dean Ambrose! And Roman Reigns enters from the crowd to the delight of many. They still need a 3rd man though to even the odds *sits by the phone*
Strowman is just obliterating Ambrose here.
Strowman shoves Reigns at ringside, so Reigns retaliates and attacks, giving Strowman the DQ win. All for nothing though because Strowman just destroys Reigns and Ambrose. Ambrose hits Strowman with a chair and its like hitting a Samoan in the head... it does nothing.
Backstage from commercial with Rene Young interviewing Lana. We are then shown the interview with Summer Rae during the commercial break where she explains her side of the "story". She claims she was being seduced by Ziggler and will never forget seeing him naked. Back to Lana and shes in tears as she walks away. Are they REALLY going with this?
Here comes THE NEW DAY, and Xavier has un-cornrowed his hair so its hanging free. Interesting look since I have never seen it like that.... its always an afro or pulled back.
They bring out a special table from under the ring, and its covered in bubble wrap. They claim its the last table in the building so they will do everything to protect it from those poachers.... "SAVE... THETABLES!"
The Dudleyz have arrived back on RAW, competing in their first WWE RAW match in ten years. Prime Time Players are seated at ringside on commentary.
As D-Von whips Bubba into Kofi in the corner, Bubba shouts "NEW DAY SUCKS~!" to get a good laugh from the crowd.
New Day in control as we return. Xavier NEVER. SHUTS. UP.
That tag was illegal ref! Big E was in the middle of the ring apron, not even holding the tag rope! C'mon now! Consistency!
PTP trying to convince Byron Saxton to ditch the suit and get back in the ring to help them against the New Day.
A BEAUTIFUL 3D wins the match for The Dudley Boyz. D-Von gets the special bubble wrap table from ringside. They rip the wrap off and set up Big E for the 3D but Xavier and Kofi pull him out of the ring just in time.
Cole reminds everyone that the PTP have a rematch clause they have yet to use.
