The show started as the storyline between Randy Orton and Roman Reigns was shown. Last week, Randy Orton met Triple H backstage and he asked for his WWE World Heavyweight championship match against John Cena. Triple H said that he would not be given anything since every time he was about to attempt something for the title, Roman Reigns came out and prevented him. Triple H wanted Orton to finish off Reigns first before getting a title shot. Orton guaranteed Triple H that he would destroy Reigns. On that same night, Kane was scheduled to face Roman Reigns in a one on one contest. As Roman Reigns was making his way to the ring, Randy Orton attacked him. Orton along with Kane started beating him. Reigns tried to fight back but a Choke Slam from Kane knocked him off. After the choke slam, Kane left the arena and Randy Orton kept the assault going on. Orton beat Reigns down really bad.
The show started as the Authority (Triple H, Stephanie McMahon, Randy Orton, Seth Rollins and Kane) made their way towards the ring. Triple H started the things off by saying thet were just two weeks away from the biggest pay per view of the summer; Summerslam which would be available on the WWE Network for just $9.99. He said that he was not the man to pat himself on the back. But on that instance, he was going to just the same because he thought that it could be biggest and best Summerslam in the history.
At the Summerslam the sadistic Bray Wyatt would go one on one against the Y2J Chris Jericho which could be seen on the WWE Network for just $9.99. And that would not be all, Mr. Money in the Bank Seth Rollins would go one on one against the unstable Dean Ambrose which could also be seen on the WWE Network for just $9.99. Speaking of that match, he said Seth Rollins gave him an idea for that night. There would be a Beat the Clock challenge on that night where both Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose would try to Beat the Clock and the one who defeated his opponent in the shorter time, he would be given the opportunity to name any stipulation for their one on one match at Summerslam. It would not be so easy for Dean Ambrose because his opponent in the Beat the Clock challenge would be Alberto Del Rio. And the fans must not think that they were going easy Seth Rollins because his opponent in that Beat the Clock challenge would be Rob Van Dam.
Stephanie McMahon took the mic now. The fans booed her loudly. Stephanie heard the reaction and said that she was also happy see the fans. She announced that later on that night, they would have the official contract singing of her match against Brie Bella. Triple H added that it could also be caught on the WWE Network for just $9.99. Stephanie said that if Brie Bella crossed her line on that night, she would slap her so hard that she would be seen lied on the hospital bed beside her husband’s bed Daniel Bryan.
The fans chanted ‘Yes’ by hearing the name of Daniel Bryan. Triple H said that it would not be all, because at Summerslam the Beast Incarnate Brock Lesnar would try to take the WWE World Heavyweight championship away from the fifteen times world champion John Cena. And this particular match could also be seen on the WWE Network for just $9.99. He said there was more and he handed the mic to Randy Orton. Orton said that the best part of Summerslam would be provided by him and he guaranteed it that he would finish Roman Reigns off. He would do the same thing again at Summerslam which he did last week on Monday Night Raw.
Roman Reigns’ music hit and he came out to the arena through the crowd. Reigns stood on the crowd and stared at the Authority for a while. Reigns said that he would return all the favor to Orton for last week and he was standing right over there. He mentioned Triple H and said that Triple H was all about great deals, he had one for him, he would come out to the ring and he would beat Randy Orton for free.
Triple H wanted everyone to calm down. Triple H said that Orton got Roman Reigns, but he had to wait till Summerslam, on that night Roman Reigns would face the Demon Kane, and he expected to see a Demon and he looked at Kane. Roman Reigns would face Kane on that night in a last Man Standing match. Fans were really excited to hear the announcement.And he asked them not to go anywhere because that match was next.
Match 1 – Roman Reigns defeated Kane in a Last Man Standing match. Terrible creative work. The way the match ended was absolutely awful. Kane was totally fit and he was suddenly knocked out after a spear. Kane could not wake up after just one spear! It was horrible to see Kane jobbing in such a low level.
A very good video promo of John Cena vs. Brock Lesnar was shown.
Match 3 – The First Beat the Clock challenge – Dean Ambrose defeated Alberto Del Rio and the time to beat for Seth Rollins was 15:42 minutes. It was a very good match. Dean Ambrose pinned Alberto Del Rio with Dirty Deeds.
A video promo of Stephanie McMahon vs. Brie Bella was shown.
After the match, Lana said that the Deputy Prime Minister of Russia Dmitry Rogozin tweeted a photo on Twitter by giving two pictures, on one side Rogozin playing with a Leopard and Barrack Obama on the other side standing with a pup, with a quotation on the pic; ‘We Have Different Values and Allies’. She said that it was the birthday of United States of America’s president Barrack Obama’s birthday so she would like to sing for him in Russian. And she sang something in Russian in the tone of Happy Birthday.
The Real Americans Jack Swagger and Zeb Colter interrupted them. Zeb Colter told Lana to shut up. He said that he was so sick and tired of hearing her voice. He was also sick and tired of hearing the name of Vladimir Putin, he was sick and tired of hearing about Mother Russia. And he was sick and tired of hearing about Rusev crush. He said that Lana and Rusev had no idea on what was going to happen to them, because Jack Swagger was going to fight for the American Flag and would be defending its honor. But Rusev would be fighting against every real American in the world. He wanted to show the people that jack Swagger was representing. He was representing guys like Nick, and a photo of a builder was shown. Colter continued that the the guy worked hard every day for his kids, that was whom Swagger was fighting for. He was fighting for Megan, a photo a lady was shown on the giant screen, who worked 60 hours a week, that was whom he was representing. And he was fighting for the US Army, who were fighting for the country day and night. Fans started chanting ‘USA’.
Zeb Colter continued as he said that he could clearly see the American flag waving in glory at Summerslam and the only that was going to get crushed at Summerslam was Lana’s ego. After that he wanted all the real Americans to rise and put their hands on the hearts to say loudly ‘We, the people’. The fans chanted ‘USA’ really loud. Rusev pretended to leave the ring and suddenly he attacked Swagger with the Russian Flag. He kept beating Swagger badly with the Russian flag. He knocked Swagger out with the flag stick. He attempted to beat Zeb Colter after that but prevented him.
Match 5 – Dolph Ziggler defeated Cesaro. Ziggler pinned Cesaro with the Zig Zag. WWE Intercontinental champion The Miz was on the commentary box. After the amtch, Miz and Ziggler confronted each other.
Footage from last week’s Smackdown was shown where the WWE Divas champion AJ Lee was celebrating near the entrance stage after winning her match against Rosa Mendes when she was attacked viciously by Paige. Later, it was declared that AJ Lee has picked up an injury.
Backstage Paige was interviewed where she said that she would like to wish her best friend in the whole wide world AJ Lee a speedy recovery. When she was asked if she had anything else to say to AJ, she said that AJ knew how much she admired her. And it would be a dream for her to face her idol at Summerslam for the Divas championship, she said that she was so excited about it. She said that she was hoped AJ was doing well and she wished to see AJ really soon. She missed her so much. (Paige looks more and more interesting, this promo was superb, I can clearly see her becoming one of the top divas of WWE)
Backstage Triple H and Stephanie McMahon was discussing something when Kane came in. Surprisingly, she opened up her mask and handed it to Stephanie McMahon. (so Kane’s corporate gimmick is retuning again?)
Match 7 – Chris Jericho defeated Luke Harper by disqualification. The match was stipulation as if Jericho beat Harper, Harper would be banned from the ring side in Jericho vs. Wyatt at Summerslam. Wyatt attacked Jericho during the match and beat him down to lead the match to disqualification.
Match 8 – Diego defeated Fandango. Fandango bought Hornswoogle as his partner but during the match, Fandango accidentally hit Hornswoogle. After the match, Fandango loathed his anger on Hornswoogle as Diego and El Torito beat down Fandango. Hornswoogle joined Diego and his team. Layla lifted El Torito on her lap and danced with the rest.
Backstage Randy Orton interviewed by Renee Young where Orton wanted everyone to see what he did to Reigns last week on Raw. Orton said that Kane was one of the best WWE superstars but he came nowhere near to him and at Summerslam he would prove to everyone that he could strike anytime and anywhere. He wanted Reigns to be awared of what was going to happen to him at Summerslam.
Rob Van Dam came out for the second beat the clock challenge, followed by Seth Rollins. Before the start of the match, it was announced that Rob Van Dam would not be Seth Rollins’ opponent in the beat the clock challenge. It would be Heath Slater. Seth Rollins looked quite satisfied to see his new opponent.
Match 10 – Heath Slater defeated Seth Rollins. Dean Ambrose was outside of the ring and he continuously distracted Seth as Heath took the advantage of the situation with a sudden pin fall victory. Dean Ambrose took away the contract from the Money in the Back briefcase away. It was announced that Dean Ambrose would announce the stipulation of their Summerslam match on Friday Night Smackdown.
It was time for the official contract signing of Stephanie McMahon vs. Brie Bella at Summerslam. Stephanie McMahon came out to the arena first along with Triple H followed by Brie Bella along with Nikki Bella.
Triple H said that in two weeks’ time, at the Summerslam pay per view event, which could be watched live on the WWE Network for just $9.99, there would be a historic match between Brie Bella and Stephanie McMahon. He said that it was his job as the COO of the company to oversee the contract signing. But since Stephanie McMahon was her wife and the mother of his children it was a personal conflict for him so he refused from this proceeding. That was why he asked Michael Cole to step in to officiate the contract signing. He stood before everyone not as the COO, not as the authority, not as the game, but a loving, proud and devoted husband.
Brie Bella expressed her irritation and asked if they could get to this already before they all started throwing up. Stephanie McMahon answered by saying if anybody understood about supportive spouses it was Brie Bella herself. She asked where her husband was right now. Was he still recovering. Brie answered that Daniel Bryan was indeed recovering, but the question was, had Stephanie McMahon recovered from her arrest two weeks ago. The video footage of the incident was shown on the giant screen.
The smile of Stephanie McMahon’s face was gone after seeing the footage. Brie Bella provoked Stephanie and asked what it felt to her. She said that at Summerslam Brie would not only beat her, but she was going to embarrass her, and it would not be in front of just twenty thousand people but in front of the entire WWE universe. She was going to send a message to the whole world that the powerful Stephanie McMahon nothing more than a fraud, a failure, an embarrassment to the McMahon family, and this was not just for her, or for her sister Nikki, or for her husband Daniel, this was for Vickie Guerrero, for the Big Show, for the Rhodes family, and for every other person in their roster that she tortured week after week. The fans broke into CM Punk chant. She told Stephanie one thing about Karma, was that it always came around. And her Karma was about to crashing down on you in the way she could not even imagine. Brie Bella signed the contract.
Stephanie took the pen to sign the contract. She said that all those families and legacies she mentioned would surely be appreciate to be represented by the likes of Brie. She said that she was a fourth generation McMahon. She did not think Brie understood what that meant, Brie was nothing more than a wanna be reality star who abandoned her injured husband, stole the spotlights from sister, just to make a name at Summerslam. She said that Brie needed to look at the mirror where she would see a selfish woman. She mentioned what Brie said that she would embarrass her at Summerslam, she said that she was already embarrassed to stand in front of her and at Summerslam she was going to put an end to her pathetic attempt to make history. Stephanie McMahon signed the contract.
After signing the contract, Stephanie McMahon said that at Summerslam, she was going to tear your heart out and she hit Nikki with the mic. Triple H pushed the table along with Brie with the corner to lock her. Stephanie hit a pedigree on Nikki Bella. Brie slapped hard on the face of Triple h as they mocked the yes chant. Stephanie smashed Brie’s head on the table and hit a Pedigree on Brie too. Triple h and Stephanie McMahon celebrated as the show went off air.
