Roman then hit the superman punch on both of them.Then he hit the spear on both of them.

Seth Rollins vs. Rob Van Dam - Solid match. Rollins won clean with the curb stomp. Rollins walked back up on the stage and noticed the presents sitting on the stage for Hulk Hogan. He looked at one very large box thinking that Dean Ambrose might be in the box. He figured that he was wrong and began to walk off but he was right and Ambrose broke through the large box and attacked Rollins. Ambrose grabbed the mic and told Seth to run while he still can and this Sunday Rollins can't run and "for just $9.99 I'm going to get more than my moneys worth."
They aired a new Slam City commercial. New episodes are coming.
2nd hour segment - Stephanie McMahon comes out. She introduced Daniel Bryan's physical therapist Megan Miller. Megan had a "confession." She said that she's tried hard to make sure that Daniel gets back in the ring. She's a horrible actress. She said that her boyfriend left her and she can't be Bryan's physical therapist because "it all happened so innocently" and "at least it did at first." Steph asked what happened. Megan said that she's been having an affair with Daniel Bryan. Steph hugged Megan and told her that her heart goes out to her. Brie Bella came to the ring and confronted Megan and asked her how she could do this. Steph said that her problem isn't with her tonight..her problem is with Megan. Steph said that Bryan called Brie a dead fish. Brie slapped Megan and then attacked Stephanie. Brie put Steph in the YES lock but WWE officials came in to break it up. Steph said that she's not waiting til SummerSlam and this will be handled tonight. So they're teasing a match between Brie and Steph for later in the show.
More birthday wishes from celebs: Drew Brees (Saints QB), AJ Hawk and Aaron Rodgers from the Packers.
Jack Swagger vs. Cesaro - Long match with a commercial break in the middle. The story in the match was that Swagger may have hurt his ribs and he was holding on to his side throughout the match. He got the Patriot lock to make Cesaro submit. Zeb Colter go on the mic and said that SummerSlam will be known as DeportLandia. He told Lana to give Rusev a message...tell him that after SummerSlam, everyone from L.A. to Chernoble will remember the 50 stars and 13 bars waving proudly in the ring. He said that Swagger will own Rusev. Then everyone repeated "WE THE PEOPLE." Just as that was happening the Russian flag appeared from the ceiling and Rusev came out. Nothing happened though. It was just a staredown. They are hyping Brie vs. Stephanie for later tonight.
Chris Jericho/Bray Wyatt segment - They aired a segment from earlier today with Bray Wyatt and Chris Jericho in the same room. Bray told Michael Cole to leave the room. Bray said that he remembers Jericho wanting to live up to his daddy. He asked Jericho if he see the disappointment in his fathers eyes. He said that Jericho sought out to fill the hole by becoming a savior on his own. Bray said that he doesn't claim to be a savior. He said that he's here to help people that can't help themselves. He said that the only way to truly help someone is to help them. Bray said that he's hurt a lot of people and he's not sorry and he can't resist the urge. Bray said that he has no conscience and he doesn't believe in heaven or hell and he hates everything that the world has ever created. Bray admitted that he's a monster.

John Cena segment - Cena comes out to respond to Heyman and Lesnar. Cena said that he'll take the beating of a lifetime but one thing that Lesnar will not do is win because for him to win he'll have to make Cena lose and Cena is not laying down for Brock Lesnar. He said "any of you can take that any way you want because Brock, you do not deserve this." He said that one day he will lose the title but it won't be to Brock Lesnar. Cena said that Brock doesn't give a damn about anyone but himself and Brock is the most difficult, uncaring SOB and every superstars knows that. He said that behind that giant screen it's not a social club...this is business. He said that Lesnar's "idiotic" view of the business should not reward him. Cena said that he's heard the cheer and boos over the years. He said that he's been told that he can't wrestle but every week he comes out with a smile on his face and there's a group of people that ask "when does John Cena turn? when does John Cena say enough is enough?" He said that this Sunday he will become a beast and the fans will get their wish because the fans will see a John Cena that he's not proud of but it's necessary to keep the title off of Brock Lesnar. He said that Brock doesn't deserve the title because Brock believes that "this" is his house and the fans belong to him. Cena said that is not what the title stands for and that "this house" belongs to "you" (the fans). He said that "this is your house." He said that if this is Brock's house then there's a stranger standing in Brock's living room. He told Brock to try and come down and kick him out. He said that maybe Brock came down with a case of "Punk Bitch itis." Brock didn't come out. Cena said that he won't repeat history on Sunday, he will make it because he will be the ONE that beats the ONE. "This Sunday...the Champ is HEREEE!" Really good promo from Cena.
