The build to Extreme Rules continues as we are only a few weeks away!

PROMO (In-Ring): Bray Wyatt starts off the show in the ring, and he proclaims to be our one true savior. He says that he will cut down The Beast. After insulting everyone he will be going up against in the Extreme Rules PPV, he is interrupted by Roman Reigns. Then Kurt Angle comes and makes a match between the two.

*Commercial Break*

MATCH: Roman Reigns vs. Bray Wyatt

During the match, Samoa Joe interrupts. He puts the Coquina Clutch on Roman Reigns and then puts it on Bray Wyatt. That brings out Seth Rollins to join the fun. This ends with Roman & Seth standing tall in the ring.

RESULTS: Roman Reigns technically wins via DQ.
THOUGHTS: I had a feeling that this was going to implode with the guys in the fatal five way. Am I good or what?

*Commercial Break*

PROMO (Backstage): Roman is backstage telling Seth he doesn't need his help. Then Kurt Angle comes in with our main event. Roman Reigns & Seth Rollins vs. Samoa Joe & Bray Wyatt. Elias Sampson then comes in playing his guitar again, and Kurt notes he hasn't had his first match yet. So, he sets up a match against Dean Ambrose.

MATCH: Akira Tozawa vs. Daivari

RESULTS: Akira Tozawa wins via pinfall.
THOUGHTS: Tozawa may be the most believable in the company when it comes to in-ring work next to Shinsuke Nakamura. They definitely have that strong style.

*Commercial Break*

PROMO (Backstage): Charly asks Sasha about her rubber match with Alicia Fox tonight. Then Alicia & Noam come in making fun of her for being all alone. If you wanted to know, this was a total dud and it sucked.

PROMO (In-Ring): So.. Elias Sampson tries to sing a song about Grand Rapids or something but the crowd is booing so loud you can't even hear the beginning of it, and then Dean interrupts it. I can't tell if that was good heat or "this sucks" heat.

MATCH: Elias Sampson vs. Dean Ambrose

The Miz & Maryse are on commentary.

During the match, The Miz attacks Elias Sampson causing Ambrose to lose via DQ. Which if that happens in two weeks at Extreme Rules he loses his title.

RESULTS: Elias Sampson wins via DQ.
THOUGHTS: Not a bad debut for Sampson minus that awful song he tried.

PROMO (Backstage): A ref is with Big Cass leading him to where Enzo Amore had apparently been attacked and lays unconscious.

*Commercial Break*

PROMO (Backstage): Kurt promises to find out who hurt Enzo, and Big Cass says he better find out before he does.

PROMO (In-Ring): Finn is in the ring saying that the Balor Club has a huge match at Extreme Rules, and then Paul Heyman makes an appearance. He says that none of the five men can stand up to his client. They will all be victims.. All of them except Finn Balor. Paul knows that he is the best in ring performer today, and he sees him coming. He offers goodluck to Finn and shakes his hand. Finn leaves a message for Brock, saying that he will beat Brock Lesnar.

*Commercial Break*

MATCH: Finn Balor vs. Karl Anderson (w Luke Gallows)

RESULTS: Finn Balor wins via pinfall.
THOUGHTS: I'm really hoping to see these guys help Finn win at Extreme Rules and see a reunion. I would love that.

*Commercial Break*

MATCH: Alicia Fox (w Noam Dar) vs. Sasha Banks

RESULTS: Sasha Banks wins via pinfall.
THOUGHTS: I'm hoping this "feud" is over.

After the match, Alicia attacks Sasha over she slaps Dar.

PROMO (Backstage): Kalisto asks Apollo why he is with Titus, and if he attacked Enzo tonight. Apollo said no, and Titus offers him connections he couldn't have otherwise. Titus comes in and says Kalisto wants to be the first international star on the Titus Brand. Kalisto says no, and that Apollo will teach him something about respect.

*Commercial Break*

PROMO (Big-Screen): Goldust says gold is the purest form of all, and R-Truth's light is flickering on Goldust's silver-screen. Goldust is back in the directors chair, and he is in control.

PROMO (Backstage): Charly asks Alexa about her "Kendo Stick on a pole match" (ridiculous I know) at Extreme Rules. Last week, Bliss attacked Bayley with a kendo stick. She says she will end Bayleys little dream.

*Commercial Break*

MATCH: Apollo Crews (w Titus O'Neil) vs. Kalisto

RESULTS: Kalisto wins via pinfall.
THOUGHTS: Well.. So much for Apollo getting any sort of push with Titus. But why would he..?

*Commercial Break*

MATCH: Matt Hardy (w Jeff Hardy) vs. Sheamus (w Cesaro)

The winner chooses the stipulation for the match at Extreme Rules.

RESULTS: Matt Hardy wins via pinfall.
THOUGHTS: Nothing great, but hey I think the right guy won.

After the match. Matt Hardy announces that they will defend the title inside a steel cage at Extreme Rules.

*Commercial Break*

MATCH: Austin Aries vs. Tony Nese (w Neville)

RESULTS: Austin Aries wins via submission.
THOUGHTS: Tony Nese will be a Cruiserweight Champion within the year. He's the real deal.

After the match, Neville attacks Nese.

*Commercial Break*

MATCH: Alexa Bliss vs. Mickie James

RESULTS: Alexa Bliss wins via pinfall.
THOUGHTS: Alexa is the best thing going in women's wrestling right now, and it isn't even close.

After the match, Alexa gets out a kendo stick and uses it on James. Bayley comes in and gets it herself. Alexa is out of the ring before Bayley can use it.

*Commercial Break*

MATCH: Seth Rollins & Roman Reigns vs. Samoa Joe & Bray Wyatt

RESULTS: Samoa Joe & Bray Wyatt win via KO.
THOUGHTS: A match with four studs is generally (and should be) a good match. This was definitely a good match.
