RETRIBUTION take over the production truck as we experience issues with the feed, which cuts off McIntyre as we go to commercial.
  • Drew McIntyre is backstage with a number of wrestlers and shares his anger over RETRIBUTION's actions. Seth Rollins sarcastically claps him and claims to be the Messiah the locker room needs. He notes being WWE Champion doesn't make McIntyre a leader, whilst Ricochet informs Rollins that Rey Mysterio will be turning up tonight. McIntyre threatens to drop Rollins who retreats for his own safety.
  • The Hurt Business is in the ring to make a statement. MVP tells RETRIBUTION that The Hurt Business are officially open for business. He calls them out as he isn't scared of them.

  • Rey Mysterio comes down to the ring flanked by Dominik Mysterio. He shares he has felt pain since Extreme Rules, but witnessing his own flesh and blood in agony was worse than the pain of his eye. He will be in the corner of his son at SummerSlam. Dominik knows what he has to do in order to protect his family. Rollins shows up on the titantron, calling Mysterio an idiot. He adds Mysterio is selfish, but Mysterio encourages Rollins to come down to the ring to back up his words. Rollins accepts and comes down to the ring, with the Mysterio family hastily leaving the ring. Mysterio threatens to enter the ring, but Dominik hits Rollins and Murphy from behind with a kendo stick.

Orton delivers an RKO and a Punt Kick to Michaels, with Drew McIntyre coming out to scare off Orton. As McIntyre tends to Michaels he is attacked by Orton, however McIntyre slams Orton into the steel post and plexiglass.
