Seth Rollins & Aleister Black Segment
Seth Rollins: Mainly, it is referred to as, globe luxation. What that means, in the simplest of terms, is that at Extreme Rules last night, Rey Mysterio’s eye came out of its socket. Now, let me be honest with you, I understood going into the match what the eye for an eye stipulation entailed. As it was expressed to me, it was understood that to win the match you had to remove your opponent’s eye from its socket, but what happened last night will stay with me for the rest of my life. Please, please, try to understand that this is difficult for me as well.
The visual, the image of Rey Mysterio holding his own bloody eye in his hand will stay with me, in my memories, forever. It was disgusting. It was barbaric. It was violent. It was more than I expected, it made me sick to my stomach, figuratively and literally. And I suppose the question that i’ve been asked most, in the last 24 hours, was do I regret it? Do I regret what happened last night? And I don’t mean to be obtuse, but I have to answer a question with a question. Let me ask you, the WWE Universe, do you regret what you have done to me? Because this was not my decision. You were the ones who made me The Monday Night Messiah.
You were the people who demanded that I become the person who you now refer to as a monster. You made me. So, let me ask you, do you regret what you have done to me? And by proxy, what you’ve done to Rey Mysterio and his family? And speaking of Rey Mysterio, let’s remember who asked for this stipulation. Rey Mysterio asked for this match to be, eye for an eye, actions have consequences. What happened to Rey Mysterio last night was ugly, and it was unfortunate, but we cannot afford to dwell in the past. No, the beauty in all of this, is that now, Rey Mysterio is out of sight. Rey Mysterio is out of sight. And Monday Night Raw is free to fulfill its potential. The greater good of this show can happen, will happen, and there’s nobody left to stand in the way of the greater good.
Aleister Black: Don’t you dare deflect any of this blame, but on yourself. You, you orchestrated all of this. This is all on your hands. But right now, Seth Rollins, I am here to rectify all of this.
Black starts brawling around the ringside with Buddy Murphy to close the segment.

MVP, Bobby Lashley, Shelton Benjamin, Ricochet, Cedric Alexander, and Mustafa Ali Segment
MVP: All right, in case you were living under a rock, and you missed it. Last night, at The Horror Show at Extreme Rules, MVP emerged your new United States Championship. And I didn’t even break a sweat, because a few weeks ago on Raw, The CEO of The Hurt Business, “The Almighty” Bobby Lashley ragged dolled Apollo Crews so badly, that he chose to stay home, and nurse his wounds, instead of being the fighting champion that he said he would be.
See, I don’t make excuses, I make history. Honestly, my victory was a forgone conclusion, so it didn’t matter whether Apollo showed up or not. But, once we get done beating up on dumb and dumber, I mean, Ricochet and Cedric Alexander, two hard headed, knuckle headed kids that just don’t listen, when we get done with them, we gone jump on the wip, head to the after party and celebrate this championship gold, how about that?
Ricochet: Wait, dumb and dumber? Really, dumb and dumber? Is that the best you got? Man, get this dude.
Cedric Alexander: Dumb and Dumber, that was funny back in 2006, where your career was relevant. All I’m looking at right now, in the present day, is a coward, holding a championship that he did not earned.
Ricochet: Yeah, the same coward who stands behind Bobby Lashley, his little meal ticket. And comes out here and acts like he’s some sort of champ. Man, I hate to say it, MVP, but you’re just a chump, bro.
Cedric Alexander: As far as all this advice you’ve been throwing out goes, it means nothing, Ricochet and I have been champions here before, and we will do it again.
Ricochet & Cedric Alexander: On our own, without you.
MVP: That’s real cute, kids. See, when I stand in the ring, and I look at these three grown ass men, I see, The Hurt Business, including our new executive on the board, Shelton Benjamin. And I look at you, and I see two little kids, that should still be sitting in catering, like you and I discussed. So, check this out, since you guys don’t even have your buddy, because you’re so lame, Apollo Crews ain’t even showed up to help you guys out, we’ll make it fair for you. Pick any two of us that you want, and let’s go ahead and get this over with it.
Ricochet: Actually, to cut you off right there, we do have another tag team partner.
Cedric Alexander: We do. Someone, who like us, believes you’re full of garbage. Someone, who’s making their return to Monday Night Raw.
MVP: Well, obviously, it’s not Apollo Crews because he’s home right now, nursing his neck, eating a big slice of humble pie.
Ricochet: I didn’t say anything about Apollo. But I can say, after tonight, it’s gonna be you three, who are full of humble pie, courtesy of Mustafa Ali.
Lashley eats two SuperKicks. Ricochet with an Apron Enzuigiri to MVP. Alexander sends Benjamin tumbling to the floor to close the segment.

Randy Orton Promo
Do you ever think to yourself, about those moments, back in time, those moments that may have changed your life? I do. Now, for some, they might think the moments i’m referring to are when I joined Evolution or when I had that match with Mick Foley years ago at Backlash 2004 or when I became the youngest World Heavyweight Champion in WWE History, but those aren’t the moments i’m talking about. Although those moments did help solidify me to be The Legend Killer, to be the greatest wrestler ever, those are not the moments, that i’m referring to. The moments that i’m referring to is the same moment I see every time I shut my eyes.
The moment i’m referring to was 175 days ago, when I swung a steel chair as hard as I could down on the surgically repaired neck of Edge. I made a lot friends in this business, those friendships, I thought, as far as I was concern were etched in stone, but they’re not. Those friendships are done with, they’re gone. Edge, Christian, Big Show, these are all men that at some point in my career, one time or another, I swear to you, that they helped save me from myself, which is amazing to me, it baffles me in fact that a moment in my history could’ve brought so much pain, to so many different people, all at the same time, that same moment in history makes me, brought me, satisfaction. It felt good when I stood over a convulsing body of a man that paved the way for tons of WWE Superstars in the locker room. It made me feel fantastic to stand over that same man, at Backlash, knowing that I ended his career. And the night after, that man’s best friend came to his aid. Where was I? I was right there in that ring to put a stop to it, and ruin Christian’s chance at one last match. And tonight, with The Big Show, I will punt kick him in the skull, and I will enjoy, immensely, ending his career, once and for all.

Stephanie McMahon, Bayley, Sasha Banks, and Asuka Segment
Sasha Banks: Thank You !
Bayley: Oh, come on, show some respect for your new Raw Women’s Champion. Shame on you, guys, I mean, shame on your pettiness.
Sasha Banks: You know what, Bayley? I got this. I know a lot of you have been talking about me. People are accusing me of stealing this Raw Women’s Championship. But, either you have bad hearing or low def television, because last night, I fought for this championship, unlike like my opponent, who got handed this title.
Bayley: Literally handed, like, here you go.
Sasha Banks: Becky Lynch handed this Raw Women’s Championship to Asuka because Becky Lynch went on maternity leave, but it seems to me that you people are forgetting that. Just like you people are forgetting that last night at Extreme Rules, Asuka spit her disgusting green mist in that poor referee’s face, almost blinding him. That referee couldn’t continue my match, he couldn’t officiate my match. Bayley did not steal the referee’s shirt, she just borrowed it, because someone had to do it, somebody had to officiate my match.
Bayley: I’m not just Bayley Dos Straps, but i’m your role model. And when I saw Sasha cover Asuka, I had to make a split decision, and I had to do the right thing, and make the count, right? Because i’m not just Bayley Dos Straps, okay, I am your role model. So, when I saw Sasha cover Asuka, I had to do the right thing, again, and make the count. But you idiots just don’t get that, do you?
Sasha Banks: But you guys don’t need to get it. What they need to get is that, I am The Boss, I am the standard, and I am the blue print. And now I am, Two Belts Banks, and now we have all the gold.
Asuka: Sasha was not ready for Asuka. And Asuka was not ready for thief. This is my title.
Sasha Banks: Oh, this is your title, then come and get it.
Stephanie McMahon: Hang on a second, ladies. Now, Bayley and Sasha, congratulations on being the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions. And Bayley, congratulations on being the SmackDown Women’s Champion. But Sasha, as far as the Raw Women’s Championship is concerned, well, that match last night at Extreme Rules certainly was a horror show. Now, you may believe yourself to be the Raw Women’s Champion, but I have a difference of opinion. You see, you didn’t win last night, but then again, neither did you, Asuka. Therefore, next week, we are going to have a championship match to determine who is the rightful Raw Women’s Title Holder. And just to be very clear, Sasha, because it doesn’t appear like you are listening, you can lose via pinfall, submission, dq, count out or to put more bluntly, if a certain role model gets involved, you will lose. Good luck.

Drew McIntyre & Dolph Ziggler Segment
Drew McIntyre: Man, I got to hand it to Dolph. Well, thank you very much. You know, that stipulation, that was brilliant, it completely swayed the match in Dolph Ziggler’s favor. He maximized the stipulation. He destroyed me with everything he could. He hit with me chairs, he tried to crush my wind pipe, he jumped off this ring post here, and elbow dropped me through a trouble. And if i’m gonna be completely honest, Dolph Ziggler almost had me. But, there’s a but, almost is doing things is the story of Dolph Ziggler’s entire career. As for Drew McIntyre, onwards and upwards, our next big event is SummerSlam, the biggest show since WrestleMania where I beat “The Beast” Brock Lesnar. And Drew McIntyre wants a worthy opponent. It’s sure as hell not you.
Dolph Ziggler: Drew, last night, The Horror Show that was Extreme Rules, I saw something in you, I haven’t seen in a long time. Not that normal fire that I see in your eyes, I saw fear, for the first time in a long time, as I saw your world almost crumbling down.
Drew McIntyre: Dolph, just stop. What are you doing out here? I’m sick of the sight of you. I just beat you last night, was that not enough?
Dolph Ziggler: Sure, what have you done for me lately, you are the WWE Champion. The whole world saw us beat the hell out of each other for that WWE Title. Of course, the stipulation were in my favor, sure, but I saw that look in your eyes, and I was this close to winning that title, this close to having my moment that I deserved for years. You had a 19 year journey, but no one talks about what I do, what I deserve.
Drew McIntyre: Are you looking for a match? I literally beat you, 24 hours ago. You picked the stipulation. The answer is, no, bugger off.
Dolph Ziggler: You don’t know what you’re saying, Drew. That look I saw in your eyes, much like the look I see in the eyes out here, of pure adoration, I saw fear, because you knew I had what it takes, you knew I was due, and it’s been a long time coming. I’ve been this close my entire life.
Drew McIntyre: My god, Dolph, you are just embarrassing yourself, i’m starting to feel bad for you. You know what I’m gonna do? I’m gonna save you the embarrassment, I’m gonna leave.
McIntyre HeadButts Ziggler.
Drew McIntyre: One day you’re gonna learn, the answer is no.
Dolph Ziggler: Hey, don’t you walk away from me, you son of a bitch. That’s right, you turn around when i’m talking to you. I deserved that match. I needed it. I can feel it in my hands, slipping away from you. Anything you want, you name it, I don’t care. You name the stipulation, you name the time, the place, I don’t give a damn. You give me that match. I deserve it, you deserve it, everyone deserves what’s coming to me. Name the stipulation, I don’t care, you have a match with me.
Drew McIntyre: You know what? I guess all those years at Law School weren’t wasted. You presented a compelling case. You’ve changed my mind, Dolph. I pick the stipulation, I accept.
Dolph Ziggler: Hey Drew, wait a second, before you walk away, I deserve that, but what’s the stipulation?
Drew McIntyre: Come on, buddy, I literally just said yes 10 seconds ago, I don’t know the stipulation. And to be completely honest, if I had two weeks, I wouldn’t tell you. I’m gonna do exactly what you did to me. I’m gonna tell you the stipulation, right before the bell rings. You’re screwed, mate, you’re such a glutton for punishment.
