As Seth is checking on his boyfriend, Paul Heyman heads out and looks down on him. He continues his trek to the ring as the crowd chants ECW and we go to commercial.

Backstage, Corbin does horrible with his script. Lacey is a little better. Corbin laughs on cue, and it’s bad. Anyway, they talk about how their relationship is purely professional and that Seth and Becky’s love will be their downfall.

In the ring, Heyman is wearin the shit out of.a blue suit from the McMahon – Lite set.

Heyman says that this Sunday, there is a PPV. It’s called eXtreme Rules. He happens to know something about the word Extreme. The show will eminate from Philly. He happens to know a lot about Extreme in Philly. So here it is; this Sunday, in Philadelphia, his client will cash in his briefcase against either Kofi or Seth Rollins. That’s not. Prediction, it’s a spoiler. If you think back, he hasn’t violated a spoiler since before Mania 30, so if he were to ever want to put out some misinformation, he has built up his credibility enough that this would be the time for him to lie. So, he has either given us a heads up for this Sunday, or he is screwing with Kofi and Seth. Only he knows the answer. Oh, and Brock knows too.

After a recap of last week’s little kerfuffle with Braun and Bobby, we go live to The Miz coming down to the ring.

Aaaaaaaaand we’re getting another two out of three falls. -eye roll-

We get a montage of tweet videos from Drake Maverick and his championship belt.

We go live to see his wife and her tits all in white. She’s upset she has to watch Drake hide in a crate. Drake offers getting it on in the crate. Drake says tonight when they leave, he’ll show her what a great hubby he is, then he’ll give her the honeymoon she deserves.

She says until then, and only then, they can consummate their marriage. Drake is happy about getting it on with his wife.

In come the cronies.

Backstage, Shane stops a beer dude to offer him the spot of Reigns partner. Drew makes him thank Shane. Beer is $15, by the way.

Rey Mysterio is here, but I know what y’all would rather see….

Ok, so Rey makes his return, and it appears that he’s going to be having a match with… Bobby Lashley. I am late to the party cuz I took a piss, but suffice to say, Lashley squashed Rey in quick work and that’s that.

Lashley isn’t done. He drags Rey up the ramp and looks towards the stage. He lifts Rey and looks to toss him into the stage, but the ref stops him. Lashley drops Rey down behind him. Some more refs come out to stop Lashley. He lifts Rey up and tosses him into the refs.

Lashley grabs a mic, says that last week he was the only man standing, and this Sunday, he better believe he will be the last man standing.

Backstage, AJ Styles is walking with his Good Brothers. He is stopped before taking a piss by Charley, and she wants to know why he attacked Ricochet.

AJ owes no one an explanation, and tells Charley to get out of his face. He then, tenderly shoves the mic away like a single strand of hair being brushed across his brow by the wind.

No Way Jose is in the ring, and nobody cares.

Cesaro chases the Conga line around the ring. Jose stops him and hits some rights then sends him into the steps. He sends Cesaro ito the barricade then into the ring. He follows.

Backstage, The Street Profits are beat boxing. They remind us to never cross Cesaro, cuz we may end up in the Upside Down. They then pimp Extreme Rules, specifically Drew and Shane take on Reigns and The Undertaker. They take guesses on who will win. They also mention tonight’s stips and how Reigns can choose anyone, even Khawi. Lol. They yell at Kerwin in the truck to transition.

Recap of Maria eating a cake with her ass.

Backstage, Mike apologizes to Maria and has some flowers for her. They’re Carnations, so probably costs a total of $7 for the entire bouquet. Cheap ass. She says she loves him, and he says he loves her more. She says she also loves ice cream and pickles. Mike offers non fat, and this upsets Maria. She sends him on his way then questions his manhood for tapping out to a woman.

Corey calls this interesting. I disagree.

We switch gears to Bayley and Nikki, or – two different version of The Joker.

Cole reminds Nikki that Alexa isn’t here and she must win in order to choose the stipulation. Nikki says she owes it all to Alexa and doesn’t know where she would be.

Bayley says Nikki doesn’t see what’s going on. She is using her. Alexa has this rematch due to Nikki. She needs to figure it out. She’s using Nikki to pik the stipulation.

Nikki has had it with Bayley running down Alexa. She has been jealous of her since day 1. The more Bayley back talks, the more motivated Nikki is to beat dat ass.

Cole explains the Beat the Clock Challenge. Cole was just informed of their opponents. Bayley vs Sarah Logan. Nikki vs Dana Brooke. Bayley says he doesn’t fear chaos, and hopes Logan brings it all. Tonight, she will beat the clock.

Nikki says she wont lie, Dana is stronger than her, bigger than her, but she isn’t tougher than her. She needs to beat Dana, cuz she’d do anything for Alexa. Tonight, she will beat the clock, and tells Bayley “Let’s play.”

Backstage, Truth is looking for Drake. He has been OKIE-DOKED before. He wonders if Drake is feeding her. Hope he isn’t showing her scary movies. She needs him. Truth says he can’t wait to get alone with his baby tonight. IN comes the running Drake, followed by the goon squad. Truth runs the opposite way.

The Minnesota Viking Raiders of Oakland are here for a match that will last just about enough time to get to a commercial break. But have no fear, I’m here to give you what you sorely miss.

Match 5: The Minnesota Viking Raiders of Oakland vs Commericals

Erik deadlifts into a German one of the jobbers. Jobber 2 tags himself in and gets a backbreaker then a gut buster than a tag from Ibar.

Backstage, Reigns tells Charley he has no info for her regarding his partner. The only people playing mind games is his team.

Ricochet on the mic. He says he was excited about proving himself to someone he looked up to. But before he could even celebrate the win, AJ and The Club beat dat ass. Now, he knows that he has AJ this Sunday. As far as tonight goes, we all know what’s going to happen. Gallows will not be alone. What he is trying to say is he’ll just have to fight all three.

AJ is out to give him some advice. He tells Ric to slow down and appreciate the moment. Might as well, cuz Gallows is gonna stomp a mudhole in him. Speaking of moments, let’s appreciate the one they had last week on RAW.

Match 6: Luke Gallows vs Ricochet

Gallows misses a right. Ric goes on the attack then whips. He stops in the corner, turns, kicks. Goes for a flying move, but Gallows catches him and chokeslams Ric down hard. Cover for 1…2..NO!!!

Nikki on the mic. She says that Bayley doesn’t understand what a real friendship means. It’s ok, though, Nikki is going to show her at Extreme Rules when Alexa lets her make Bayley’s title match a 2-on-1 handicap match. Nikki will help Alexa take Bayley’s Smackdown Women’s Title. Here’s some free advice for Bayley: Go and find a friend of her own. Someone as loyal and honest as Alexa. Someone to really slap some sense into Bayley.

Bayley with a right hand.


Bayley ain’t done!!! ELBOW DROP!

Backstage, Maria is excited about the appearance of pickles. She asks if Mike would impregnate her if she wasn’t already. He sys yes, and then she says that she isn’t so sure that he is the one that impregnated her this time. Mike is confused. Maria screams, says look what he’s done to her, and throws something.

Backstage, Corey thinks he’s better than Charley, and is backstage interviewing Becky and Seth. He brings up Corbin and Lacey, then wonder how their personal relationship will fuck with their match this Sunday. Some say it’ll be the downfall. How would it feel if Becky loses Seth’s title.

Becky says he’s got an emo head and stop trying to act like a proper journalist. The only difference about this Sunday is that there are no rules. No handcuffs, and the other two have no excuses. They are getting no more chances when they lose. They are walking out the same way they are walking in. Mr. Emo head.

Seth is all smiles, then says, “What she said, and walks away as Corey says this will be an implosion.

And Corey knows all about imploding relationships.

Oh, I get it….Shane found an old dark man to represent Taker.
