Miz tells Cesaro and Sheamus they’ve been victimized by the fans who don’t realize the greatness that’s in the ring right now. The Miz goes off on a tangent about how he made the Intercontinental Championship mean something and Ambrose ruined it. This brings out IC Champ Dean Ambrose to interrupt.

– Alexa Bliss is in the ring to talk about her Kendo Stick On A Pole match against Bayley on Sunday at Extreme Rules. Alexa has a table and some people in the ring with her, to present “Bayley: This Is Your Life.” Alexa talks to Bayley’s 4th grade teacher, who says Bayley’s dad sat next to her in class because she would cry without him. Alexa then talks to Bayley’s former best friend, who says they stopped being friends because Bayley always wanted to watch RAW or SmackDown instead of hanging out with her.
The rest of this report is from f4wonline.com…not sure what happened but apologies for the inconvenience.
Bliss came out for the “This is Your Life, Bayley” segment. There were three people in the ring with her along with various artifacts from Bayley’s past. Bliss said people couldn’t imagine Bayley in a match where a kendo strick was legal. As the goddess in the WWE, Bliss said she had to dig deep into Bayley’s past. Bliss pulled out Bayley’s first-ever doll that she’s had since she was 2 years…then Bliss stopped herself and said Bayley still plays with this one. She pulled out a trophy and said it was a sportsmanship trophy, laughing how she must have really won some scholarships with that one. Bliss found Bayley’s yearbook, where she claimed Bayley was voted most likely to apologize.
Crowd was already bored with this and they hadn’t even started doing the interviews with people from “Bayley’s past.” Bliss introduced Bayley’s 4th grade teacher Mrs. Flapper, who said Bayley always sat in the front row in class right next to her father. Mrs. Flapper said Bayley couldn’t be away from her father very long or else she would start to cry. Bliss introduced Bayley’s ex-best friend Tracy Havalina. Tracy said Bayley was her best friend, but Bayley did other people’s homework and they were best friends until Bayley wanted to watch Monday Night Raw instead of hanging out with her at the mall. Crowd was hating this.
Next up was Bayley’s ex-boyfriend Phil Johnson, who said Bayley was a very nice girl. Bliss wanted to know what was it like on Bayley’s first date. Johnson claimed Bayley brought her father everytime they were on dates. Crowd started chanting “delete.” Johnson said he leaned in to kiss Bayley one night, but he almost kissed her father instead. Johnson said he only dated Bayley because he wanted to get closer to Tracy, who acted like she didn’t know that. Then Phil and Tracy started making out. Booker muttered “This is hard to watch.”
Bayley finally came out, double legged Bliss and hit her with punches. Bliss scored a right hand, but Bayley hit a back suplex. Bayley cleaned off the table with her trophies and yearbooks on it, then went for the Kendo Stick on a pole. She started to climb up, but Bliss knocked her down, and Bayley’s ribs came down across the top rope. Bliss pulled out a kendo stick from under the table and hit Bayley with it across the back again. Remember the great Festival of Friendship angle? This was the polar opposite. Then Cole had to deliever a pitch for a 30-day free membership to the WWE Network.
They advertised a Table for 3 with Jim Cornette, Eric Bischoff and Michael Hayes.
Backstage, Amore was laid out again. Cass ran up and checked on him. Angle walked in. Cass said it was the Revival who took out Amore again. Angle said it couldn’t have been the Revival because he saw them leave the building. Cass said he was never leaving Enzo’s side again and helped him up.
Austin Aries and Jack Gallagher defeated Neville and TJP by submission (12:35)
TJP tripped Austin Aries as Aries attempted the Discus Fivearm. Jack Gallagher went after TJP as Aries backdropped Neville to the floor. Aries wiped out all three men with a tope, but started selling his left knee, which was taped up. Aries missed a missle dropkick, but Neville missed a Phoenix Splash off the second rope. Aries put Neville in the Last Chancery and Neville tapped out. Neville looked stunned as Aries kept making tapping motions to him, saying he would make Neville tap again on Sunday in their submission match.
In the back, Reigns did an interview with Rome. Reigns said there isn’t a man on this Earth that owns him and the only thing he’s concerned with tonight is proving he is the big dog and showing everyone this is his yard.
Caruso interviewed Neville backstage. She asked him if losing by submission to Aries for the first time since joining the cruiserweight division concerned him. He marched away in disgust.
There was another Goldust vignette where he said we all go a little mad soemtimes. It takes a while before you reach that moment where you snap, the breaking point. Now, he’s back in the director’s chair. R-Truth knew that Goldust was too big for a supporting role. Goldust said Truth held him back and Truth wanted the spotlight all to himself. Soon, he will put an end to all that because their motion picture will reach their final crescendo. Their ending won’t be happy, it won’t be sad, it will be golden. Goldust said the Golden age is back.
Then a Truth vignette popped up from “Truth Be Told Productions.” Like Goldust, Truth was sitting in a director’s chair looking over the shoulder to the camera. He started with the famed line “I’m sorry, Did I break your concentration?” Truth said he loved going to the movies when he was young because it served as an escape for him. He took a lot of inspiration from Shaft and Jules Winfield. He quoted some more from Jules from Pulp Fiction. In a serious tone, Truth said Goldust was going to get got.
Roman Reigns defeated Seth Rollins (18:14)
Reigns hit the drive-by, driving Rollins’ ribs into the post. Reigns made some heel-like facials after scoring big moves early. Reigns controlled for several minutes, then attempted the Superman punch, but Rollins caught a side kick to the ribs and a sling blade. Rollins tried the Falcoln Arrow, but his ribs were too sore. Rollins had a mistimed dropkick and a tope. Rollins did a springboard right into a Superman punch by Reigns, but Rollins kicked out. Reigns went for the spear, but Rollins sidestepped that and turned it into a cradle. Rollins sprung off the ropes for a superkick. Rollins went to the top rope, but Reigns caught him with a right hand and tried a Samoan Drop, But Rollins flipped over, just like how he injured his knee against Kane in November 2015, and power bombed Reigns into the corner. But in a great spot, Reigns bounced off the turnbuckles and hit a Superman punch. Crowd jumped to its feet after that spot.
After both men were down for six seconds, Rollins rolled out of the ring. Reigns ran around, but Rollins threw him into the ring steps. Rollins hit a blockbuster for a near fall, then sprang back to the top rope for a frog splash in a good false finish. Rollins went for a Phoenix Splash (3rd time tonight), but Reigns move out of the way. Reigns went for a spear, but Rollins bounced away from him and went for the Rainmaker knee strike, but Reigns ducked and speared Rollins for the pin. Match of the night, which was’t easy after the three-way.
