PMN will provide live results, updates and video highlights coinciding with the USA Network broadcast starting at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
* Randy Orton opens the show inside a steel cage, which is the stipulation he invoked for his upcoming Extreme Rules match against Seth Rollins. Rollins’s stipulation is that Orton can’t use his RKO finisher during the match. Rollins comes out and they exchange words. Orton then says he’s going to RKO Rollins before the night is over since he can’t use it at Extreme Rules.
* Dean Ambrose vs. Luke Harper — The fight is called after Ambrose and Harper take it out of the ring and into the crowd. Harper finds his escape after throwing Ambrose off the walkout stage.
* Rollins bumps into HHH backstage. HHH says Rollins looks like he’s worried there’s an RKO around every corner. Rollins asks HHH what he’s going to do about Kane and Orton and says he could use some more security. HHH responds, “It’s just one guy” and walks off.
* Lucha Dragons vs. New Day (winner to face Tag Team Champs Tyson Kidd and Cesaro at Extreme Rules) — With the help of Xavier Woods, Kofi and Big E win via count out. Randy Orton comes out of nowhere and RKO’s Woods and Kingston. Big E wants no part of it and chooses to make his exit, leaving his teammates laying in the ring.
* Curtis Axel vs. Fandango — Fandango finishes Axel with a Last Dance (leg drop) off the top rope.
* HHH takes to the ring to promote the new season of Tough Enough. Kane then comes out to join HHH in ring and announces his resignation as Director of Operations. He puts in his 2 week notice saying he can not support the likes of Seth Rollins. Rollins then comes out and he and Kane exchange words, Kane saying they made him. HHH says Kane has been more loyal to the Authority than anyone and says he will be the guardian of the gate at Extreme Rules for Rollins vs. Orton. Kane offers his hand to Rollins but Rollins walks off with J&J. We see another confrontation backstage and HHH tells Rollins he’ll face the man he was supposed to face last week, Dolph Ziggler.
