Lana and Dolph Ziggler go public
I guess the writers have never had a girlfriend. I don’t see the need to “go public.” Anyway, Ziggler and Lana come out to the ring. He says tht it wasn’t love at first sight and she was using him at first to get back at Rusev but he didn’t mind making out with a smoking hot babe so it was a win-win. Ziggler says, “I can’t believe Dolph Ziggler is saying this but the situation has changed.” Lana says Rusev was her life for years and for years she didn’t know what a real man was but not anymore and she used to do whatever Rusev wanted her to do…how to talk, dress, and how to feel about America. She says Dolph treats her with respect and they’ve become very good friends. They’ve become more than just friends. She says that Dolph is very passionate. Here comes Rusev with Summer Rae. Rusev is still on crutches. Rusev says that he never cared about Lana. He says that she is like a cold fish. He said kissing her was like kissing a ring post. Dolph stops him from talking and calls him a scumbag. He calls Lana “my girlfriend.” He tells Rusev to walk away because he blew it. Dolph tells him to walk away before he does something about Rusev’s other leg. Rusev gives Summer his crutch and yells some stuff to Dolph .Rusev grabs the crutch again and backs off. Summer grabs the mic and says that she hates a gold digger and Rusev was on top of the world at WrestleMania and she jumped ship once Rusev got injured. She said that Rusev is kind and gentle and he cared about Lana a lot. She tells Lana to tell everyone that she’s nothing more than a two-faced conniving phony. Lana laughs. Summer slaps her. Lana rushes towards Summer and a catfight breaks out. Dolph pulls Lana off but Lana charges at Summer again. Summer escapes with Rusev.

King Barrett vs. Jack Swagger
Swagger lost after getting hit with the bull hammer. It was a quick match and Swagger didn’t even get a full entrance on TV. I would not answer the phone if I was Jack Swagger. Just in case.
Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose vs. Kane and Seth Rollins
J&J brought their new car out next to the stage area. Rollins was in control of Ambrose at ringside when they went to commercial a few minutes into the match. Ambrose got a lot of offense in after the break and tried to bring in a table at one point but J&J pulled the table out of the ring. Mercury got in the ring and hit Roman with a kendo stick nut Roman no sold it and ended up using the stick on J&J and Kane. Roman hits Kane with the Superman punch. Then he hits Mercury and Rollins with the punch. Roman is about to finish Rollins off but Bray Wyatt appears at ringside and rams Roman into the steel steps. Bray picks up Roman and slams him on the announcers table. It’s a NO DQ match so the match continues. Referees were at ringside and walked behind Wyatt as Wyatt left to the back. Ambrose continued fighting in the ring but Rollins and Kane were too much for him. Kane chokeslams Ambrose and then Rollins hits the Pedigree. Rollins gets the pin. J&J brings a table in the ring and they set it up in the corner of the ring but Roman gets back in the ring and fights off The Authority before they could put Ambrose through the table. Kane chokeslams Reigns. Reigns fights off The Authority again but The Authority circles around the ring again and they attack Reigns again. Roman continues to fight but the numbers catch up with him. Rollins takes out Reigns’ knee and Kane chokeslams Reigns. Rollins put Reigns through the table in the corner. Rollins then hit Reigns with the Pedigree. Bray Wyatt came back into the ring as Roman was laid out. Bray picked up Roman and hit Sister Abigail.
Just speculation from me but it seems like they are setting up a storyline for Reigns to turn heel with the explanation being that nobody had his back and the fans and his friends were not there for him. Just speculation from me.
