JONATHAN: SO MUCH GOING ON. THE UNIFORM TITLE ON THE LINE. BROCK LESNAR SHOCKED THE WORLD CASHING IN THE MONEY IN THE BANK CONTRACT AT EXTREME RULES. IT WAS NOT ED — EASY FOR SETH ROLLINS TO GET THIS REMATCH BUT HE DID. KEARL: AND COFFEE COACH SAYS HE REALIZES THE DANGER OF STEPPING INTO THE RING WITH RANDY ORTON BUT HAVING SUCH A PERSONAL HISTORY WITH THE VIPER, KINGSTON KNOWS HE HAS NO CHOICE BUT TO DEFEND HIS TITLE TONIGHT. JONATHAN: AND TONIGHT, BECKY LYNCH AND NATALYA. CHARLEY: AND MORE WOMEN IN ACTION. BAYLEY, SHE BELIEVES IN HERSELF AS THE “SMACKDOWN” WOMEN’S CHAMP AND THERE ISN’T A WOMAN SHE’S NOT WILLING TO FACE.

HE HAS SO MANY DIFFERENT THINGS HE CAN DO AND BRAY WYATT, THEY GO ONE-ON-ONE TONIGHT AT SUMMERSLAM. CHARLEY: AND THIS EVENING, RICOCHET ATTEMPTS TO CLIMB BACK TO THE TOP OF THE MOUNTAIN WHEN HE TAKES ON THE MAN WHO DETHRONED HIM FROM THE CHAMPIONSHIP, A.J. STYLES. JONATHAN: YOU COULD ARGUE THAT THESE ARE THE TWO BIGGEST NAMES IN THE HISTORY OF THE WOMEN’S DIVISION. TRISH STRATUS, A SEVEN-TIME CHAMPION. CHARLOTTE FLAIR SAYS I’VE ALREADY GOTTEN PAST THAT NUMBER. THE QUEEN WANTS TO SEND STRATUS BACK HOME IN HER TOME TOWN. CHARLEY: AND THE STAKES ARE HIGH FOR KEVIN OWENS. HE CHALLENGED THE BEST IN THE WORLD TO A MATCH, PROMISING TO QUIT WWE FOR GOOD IF HE FALLS TO THE COMMISSIONER OF “SMACKDOWN” LIVE. ALL RIGHT, AS WE MENTIONED EARLIER, THERE’S ONLY ONE PLACE TO CATCH ALL OF THESE MATCHES AND A WHOLE LOT MORE ACTION, ON WWE NETWORK. SO HELD OVER AND SIGN UP BECAUSE SUMMER SLAM IS FREE. I SAID IT, FREE FOR NEW SUBSCRIBERS. JONATHAN: I ALREADY HAPPENED FEEL ON TWITTER SAYING HEY, WHERE IS SAM ROBERTS AND J.B.L. GET GUESS WHAT, THEY’RE HERE RIGHT NOW JOINING THE SHOW. GOOD EVENING, GENTLEMEN. SAM: GOOD EVENING. I’M SO EXCITED ABOUT TONIGHT. GROWING UP A WWE FAN, SUMMERSLAM IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE NIGHTS OF THE YEAR AND THIS YEAR I GET TO EXPERIENCE NEXT TO A LEGEND, J.B.L. JONATHAN: TWITTER IS ALWAYS KIND TO ME. AND STANDING NEXT TO I LOOK LIKE A $1 TRILLION. RAY: ONE OF THE THINGS I’M MOST EXCITED FOR HAS SOLD OUT ARENAS ALL AROUND THE WORLD AGAINST A SUPERSTAR WHO FEELS HE DESERVES RESPECT BASED ON POTENTIAL HE NEVER QUITE MET. YOU KNOW WHO I’M TALKING ABOUT? JONATHAN: MIZ TV HAS A VERY IMPORTANT GUEST LATELY, DOLPH ZIGGLER. ZIGGLER FEELS LIKE WWE LEGENDS ARE TAKING UP HIS CAMERA TIME, TAKING HIS SHINE. GOLDBERG SHOWED UP AND SAID GUESS WHAT, YOU’RE NEXT.>>WELCOME TO THE “MONDAY NIGHT RAW” REUNION. >>WATCH YOU GOING TO DO WHEN THE “RAW” REUNION RUNS WILD ON YOU? GIVE ME A HELL, YEAH! >>ENOUGH, ENOUGH. ENOUGH ALREADY WITH NESE SO-CALLED LEGENDS. — THESE SO-CALLED LEGENDS, LIMPING OUT TO THE RING, HAPPY TO BE THERE. JUST PUT ME OUT OF MY MISERY. I’M HAPPIER HERE, SHAWN. BECAUSE I USED TO IDOLIZE YOU. YOU HAD A CHANCE TO GO OFF INTO THE SUNSET AS THE GREATEST PERFORM OR — OF ALL TIME AND WHAT DID YOU DO? EVERYONE SINGLE CHANCE YOU GOT YOU SHUFFLED BACK OUT HERE AND WAVED TO THE CROWD. IT WAS EMBARRASSING. AS EMBARRELSING AS THOSE WANNABE LEGENDS LAST NIGHT, AS EMBARRASSINGING AS GOLDBERG IN A WRESTLING RING. YOU WERE EMBEARINGSING. >>WHAT’S MORE EMBARRASSING TO ME IS WORKING YOUR WHOLE CAREER, GIVING EVERYTHING YOU’VE GOT AND STILL BEING KNOWN AS SECOND ARRAIGNMENT SHAWN MICHAELS WANNABE. >>WHOA! ZIG LEARN CALLED OUT TO MICHAELS. OH! SUPERKICK H.B.K.>>SEAN, YOU MADE THE BIGGEST MISTAKE OF YOUR LIFE WHEN YOU PUT YOUR HANDS ON ME! YOU ARE LIVING IN THE PAST AND YOU ARE LOOKING AT THE FUTURE! NOW, ON SUMMERSLAM, I GO ONE-ON-ONE WITH THE A-LISTER, MIZ, YOU WANT TO GO ONE-ON-ONE WITH ME AND PROVE THAT YOU’RE THE BEST? WELL, GOOD LUCK.>>YOU KNOW, DID YOU HAVE, YOU DIDN’T REAMED THE FINE PRINT OF THAT CONTRACT. THE CONTRACT THAT YOU JUST SIGNED FOR SUMMER SLAM ISN’T ME VS. UP. WELL, DOLPH, IT’S NOT ME. MOMENT? >>OH, MY! THE INDOM TABLE GOLDBERG! YOU’RE NOT GOING TO FIND ANY MAN IN ANY SPORT MORE INTENSE THAN GOLDBERG. GOLDBERG REMAINS UNBEATEN. AND WHERE FIRST UNDEFEATED MAN IN THE HISTORY OF THIS SPORT TO EVER WIN THE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP! >>AND DOLPH ZIGGLER WANTS NOTHING TO DO WITH GOLDBERG HERE TONIGHT. >>GOLF ZIGGLER? GUESS WHAT, SON, YOU’RE NEXT. JONATHAN: CLEARLY THE WWE UNIVERSE WAS SHOCKED WHEN GOLDERING WITH — GOLDBERG SHOWED UP LAST WEEK BUT ONE MAN WHO WASN’T SHOCKED, OUR GUEST AT THIS TIME. PLEASE WELCOME THE ONE AND ONLY MIZ. MIZ: IT IS GOOD TO BE HERE AND LOOK AT THAT SHIRT. LOOK AT THAT. SUMMERSLAM, BABY, LET’S GO. JONATHAN: LET’S GO NOW. AS THE FANS CONTINUE TO FILE IN I GOT ASK YOU POINT BLANK, HOW SATISFYING WAS IT FOR YOU TO HAVE DOLPH COME OUT THINKING IT WAS GOING TO BE YOU OR SHAUNL AND IT WAS GOLDBERG. MIZ: DO YOU NOT KNOW THE MIZ? MIZ ALWAYS HAS SOMETHING UP HIS SLEEVE. DOLPH HAS BEEN TALKING ABOUT THE LEGENDS, GOLDBERG. NOW HE’S GOING TO HAVE HIS — HIS CHANCE. AN OPPORTUNITY ON THE BIGGEST STAGE, SUMMERSLAM AND GUESS WHAT, TOMORROW WHATEVER IS LEFT OF DOLPH STICK LER, I HAVE A MATCH AGAINST HIM ON “MONDAY NIGHT RAW” AND IT’S GOING TO BE AWESOME. CHARLEY: MIZ, WHEN EXACTLY DID YOU COME UP WITH THIS PLAN? MIZ: LISTEN, I’M ALWAYS THINKING OF THINGS BUT WHEN DOLPH AND I GOT IN THE RING FOR THE FIRST TIME AND STARTED TALKING, HE SAID SOMETHING ABOUT GOLDBERG AND I SAID HMM, THAT WOULD BE A LOT OF FUN AND IF HE WANTS TO PROVE HIMSELF, LET HIM PROVE HIMSELF. CHARLEY: DOLPH DOES LIKE TO RUN HIS MOUTH. WHERE DOES HE THINK HE’S ABLE TO DO SOMETHING LIKE THIS? MIZ: DOLPH ZIGGLER TALKS A GOOD GAME. HE ALWAYS SAYS IT SHOULD BE ME, IT SHOULD BE ME. WELL, WHY ISN’T IT YOU? THAT’S MY QUESTION TO HIM. IF YOU LISTEN TO THE FANS, WHEN THE FANS HEARD GOLDBERG’S MUSIC, THE PLACE ERUPTED. THE ROOF BLEW OFF THE PLACE. DOES THAT SAME REACTION HAPPEN WHEN DOLPH ZIGGLER’S MUSIC HITS? CHARLEY: NO. MIZ: TONIGHT IS THE NIGHTS YOU CAN MAKE IT YOU. JONATHAN: YOU’RE GIVING HIM THE OPPORTUNITY? MIZ: I’M GIVING HIM THE OPPORTUNITY TO SAY IT SHOULD BE YOU, LET IT BE YOU. IF IT’S NOT, IT’S NOT GOING TO BE TOMORROW ON “MONDAY NIGHT RAW” WHEN YOU HAVE ME. JONATHAN: WITH ALL THE STUFF THAT YOU TALK, THE ONE THING I THINK YOU DO IS RESPECT THE LEGENDS THAT MUCH COME BEFORE YOU. MIZ: THEY PEAYED THE PATH FOR US. JONATHAN: 100%. WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF THE FACT THAT HE NOT ONLY DOESN’T RESPECT THEM, HE DOESN’T WANT THEM HERE. MIZ: A LOT OF SUPERSTARS GET BITTER, ANGRY WHENEVER THEIR SPOT IS TAKEN BY A LEGEND. IF YOU DON’T LIKE IT, GET A BIGGER POP, A BIGGER ALL OF A SUDDEN REACTION THAN THEM. ONCE YOU HAVE THAT, THEN THEY DON’T DESERVE TO BE THERE. BUT UNTIL THEN — I GET IT, FANS SAY THEY COME BACK ONCE EVERY THREE MONTHS AND WE MISS THEM. pWELL, MAKE THEM MISS YOU CHARLEY: HOW DO YOU EXPECT DOLPH TO PERFORM TONIGHT? MIZ: I THINK WE’RE GOING TO SEE A SPEAR AND A JACK HAMMER. JONATHAN: DO YOU WANT TO STAY FOR A SECOND TO TALK ABOUT OUR NEXT MATCH? MIZ: IF YOU WANT ME TO. JONATHAN: THE WWE TITLE IS ON THE LINE TONIGHT. COFFEEY HAS BEEN THE HUNTED MAN SINCE — KOFI HAS BEEN THE HUNTED MAN SINCE CLIMBING TO THE TOP OF THE MOUNTAIN. HE AND RANDY ORTON HAVE A BIG-TIME HISTORY. THAT HISTORY IS REVISITED TONIGHT LIVE AT SUMMERSLAM. >>YOU COME OUT HERE AND YOU BRAG ABOUT HOW HARD YOU WORKED FOR THE LAST 11 YEARS. IT’S ONLY BECAUSE OF ME. RANDY ORTON SAYS THEY GOT HERE BECAUSE OF HIM. I GOT HER — HERE IN SPITE OF HIM.>>I’M NOT GOING TO BE BULLIED BY ANYBODY. THAT’S WHY I TOOK A STAND.>>RANDY ORTON BROUGHT OUT A SIDE OF KOFI KINGSTON THAT WE’VE NEVER SEEN BEFORE.>>IN 2009 I FELT LIKE I WAS BREAKING THROUGH THAT PROVERBIAL GLASS CEILING. THINGS WERE FINALLY STARTING TO CLICK. PEOPLE WERE GETTING BEHIND ME. I FELT LIKE THAT WAS THE MOMENT I MADE AND IT UNFORTUNATELY THAT’S NOT REALLY HOW IT WORKED OUT.>>KOFI KINGSTON IS STUPID FOR THINKING THAT HE COULD HANG WITH ME. IT WASN’T ENOUGH JUST TO BEAT ME. IN HIS MIND HE WANTED TO HUMILIATE ME TOO. THERE WERE ALWAYS RUMORS THAT IT WAS RANDY WHO HAD USED HIS INFLUENCE TO HOLD ME BACK.>>YOU KNOW WHAT, I DID HOLD KOFI KINGSTON DOWN. BECAUSE KOFI WASN’T ON MY LEVEL. WHEN YOU PISS ME OFF, YOU GET SENT RIGHT BACK TO THE BOTTOM OF THE LADDER.>>REGARDLESS OF ALL OF THAT, I HAD TO STAY POSITIVE, KEEP ON GRINDING. >>A NEXT-LEVEL PERFORMANCE, THE WORLD IS BELIEVING IN KOFI KINGSTON. >>HE HAD AN OPPORTUNITY BECAUSE OF ME, BECAUSE I TOOK ALI OUT AND THE REST IS HISTORY.>>ARE WE SEEING THE BEST KOFI KINGSTON OF HIS CAREER? >>THERE’S NO KOFI WITHOUT ME.>>HOW LONG HAS KOFI BEEN WAITING FOR THIS OPPORTUNITY? CAN HE FINALLY CAPTURE THE WWE CHAMPIONSHIP? >>THERE’S NO KOFI WRESTLEMANIA MOMENT WITHOUT ME.>>KOFI DID IT. KOFI IS CHAMPION! >>AND I CAN’T EVEN GET A THANK YOU. HIS ENTIRE CHAMPIONSHIP REIGN IS BASED ON A FLUKE.>>WHY DON’T WE PUT THAT TO THE TEST AT SUMMERSLAM. RANDY ORTON VS. KOFI KINGSTON FOR THE WWE CHAMPIONSHIP. >>STUPID, STUPID, STUPID. THIS LITTLE 11-YEAR FAIRY TALE YOU’VE BEEN LIVING COMES TO A SCREECHING HALT. YOU WEREN’T READY BACK THEN, KOFI, AND YOU’RE NOT READY NOW. >>BY BEAT RANDY ORTON, IT’S VINDICATION. I REALLY WANT TO INSPIRE PEOPLE TO LOOK AT ME AND SEE HEY, ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE BECAUSE THIS GUY DID IT.>>I’M GOING TO TAKE THAT TITLE OFF HIS WAIST AND I’M GOING TO DO IT WITH THE THREE MOST DESTRUCTIVE LETTERS IN SPORTS ENTERTAINMENT.>>IT’S A CHANCE FOR KNOW PROVE THAT I BELONG SO AT SUMMERSLAM WHEN I WILL BEAT RANDY ORTON AND I HOLD THAT WWE CHAMPIONSHIP HIGH FOR EVERYBODY TO SEE, WE’LL SEE WHO THE BEST ONE IS, RIGHT? COMMEARL: THE WWE UNIVERSE CONTINUES TO FILE INTO THE SCOTIABANK ARENA. EVERYONE PUMPED TO SEE THIS MATCH THAT’S BEEN A DECADE IN THE MAKING GOING DOWN FOR THE WWE CHAMPIONSHIP BETWEEN COFFEE COACH AND RANDY ORTON. NOW, IT SEEMS LIKE THERE’S A LOT OF SUPERSTARS, RANDY ORTON BEING THE LATEST WHO ARE DOWN ON KOFI AS THE WWE CHAMPION. RANDY GOING SO FAR AS TO CALL KOFI STUPID. ANYBODY THINK THIS IS GETTING INTO KOFI’S MIND? BETH: KOFI HAS BEEN A FRIEND OF MINE FOR A LONG TIME AND WATCHING THAT FOOTAGE WAS UPSETTING BECAUSE I REMEMBER KOFI GOING THROUGH THAT AND WE FELT AS A TEAM THAT RANDY DID DO THINGS TO HOLD KOFI BACK AND NOW HAVING ADMITTING THAT, THAT ADDS A NEW LER TO THIS. SAM: IF YOU’RE NOT WHERE YOU ARE IN THE WWE, BLAME YOURSELF. THIS IS THE BEST RANDY ORTON THAT WE ARE SEEING RIGHT NOW. HE IS ANGRY, HE IS MAD AND HE’S READY TO GO. MOTIVATED. MIZ: THIS IS THE ORTON THAT I WANTED TO SEE AT SUMMERSLAM AGAINST KOFI KINGSTON BECAUSE I WANT TO SEE COFFEE COACH BE TRIUMPHANT. DAVID: THIS IS ALSO THE BEST KOFI KINGSTON WE’VE SEEN. BACK THEN HE NEEDED TO MATURE. RANDY MIGHT HAVE BEEN RIGHT, KOFI WASN’T READY THEN BUT SINCE THEN HE’S MATURED AS A SUPERSTAR IN THE RING. HE’S LEARNED TO ENDURE BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY, HE’S LEARNED TO OVERCOME. THIS IS THE MOST DANGEROUS KOFI KINGSTON WE’VE EVER SEEN. NOT ONLY THAT, HE WANTS TO GO BACK AND CORRECT THIS FROM HIS PAST. JONATHAN: LET’S BRING SAM AND J.B.L. INTO THE CONVERSATION. MIZ: DO WE HAVE TO? JONATHAN: YES, WE DO. [LAUGHTER] GUYS? SAM: THIS IS THE TITLE TITLE DEFENSE FROM KOFI KINGSTON I’VE BEEN MOST LOOKING FORWARD. TO 10 YEARS AGO I WAS SITTING IN MADISON SQUARE GARDEN AS A FAN, WATCHING KOFI KINGSTON HAVE HIS FIRST BREAKOUT MOMENT AND APPARENTLY BECAUSE OF WHAT RANDY ORTON DID BEHIND THE SCENES, HIS CAREER WAS STOPPED IN HIS TRACKS. I DON’T KNOW HOW KOFI KINGSTON IS STANDING FACE-TO-FACE WITH THIS GUY WHO SLOWED DOWN HIS CAREER BY A DECADE. J.B.L.: THAT’S ONE OF THE MOST BOGUS THINGS I’VE EVER HEARD. YOU’RE NOT HELD DOWN BY A MAN. KOFI WAS NOT READY A DECADE AGO. KOFI KINGSTON IS A GLOBAL PHENOMENON. I WAS IN THE HEART OF AFRICA, ALL THE KIDS WANTED TO TALK ABOUT WAS KOFI KINGSTON. IN BERMUDA AT THE LOCAL SPORTS BARS, ALL THEY TALK ABOUT IS KOFI KINGSTON. YEARS AGO I TAG TEAMED WITH A HALL OF FAMER BOB OR THEEN AND HE TOLD ME HOW THIS KID, RANDY, HAD ALL THE POTENTIAL TO BE ONE OF THE BEST EVER. RANDY HAS LIVED TOUCH THAT POTENTIAL. 14 CHAMPIONSHIPS. THIS IS AN INCREDIBLE MATCHUP. I DON’T THINK KOFI DESERVED TO BE THERE 10 YEARS AGO AND I THINK HE DOES NOW. SAM: THERE’S NO DOUBT THAT RANDY ORTON IS ONE OF THE GREATEST OF ALL TIME BUT FOR YOU TO SAY KOFI WASN’T READY. HE DIDN’T HAVE A TITLE MATCH FOR THE ENTIRE 10-YEAR RUN. HE FINALLY GETS ONE, GOES TO WRESTLEMANIA AND HE’S HAD THE BEST POST-WRESTLEMANIA SEASON OF ANY SUPERSTAR ON THE ROSTER. THAT WOULD LEAD ME TO BELIEVE HE WAS READY LONG BEFORE THIS J.B.L.: HE DIDN’T HAVE A TITLE MATCH IN 2011, HE DIDN’T HAVE A TITLE RUN AFTER THAT. IT’S NOT LIKE RANDY ORTON HELD HIM DOWN. KOFI KINGSTON WAS NOT READY. MICHAEL JORDAN AT THE UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA WAS NOT READY TO BE A SIX-TIME NBA CHAMPION. A DECADE LATER HE WAS. KOFI KINGSTON RIGHT NOW IS READY. HE WAS NOT READY THEN AND HE CAN BLAME WHATEVER HE WANTS, IT DOESN’T MATTER. I DON’T THINK IT’S TRUE IN HIS MIND HE THINKS IT’S TRUE AND THAT MAY INSPIRE HIM TONIGHT. IF KOFI WINS THIS, IT WILL BE HIS CAREER-DEFINING MOMENT. SAM: I THINK YOU’RE RIGHT. WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK? JONATHAN: IT WILL SPECIAL BE A CAREER TOPPER. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU TOMORROW NIGHT ON “RAW.” DOWNLOAD THE LATEST WWE APP ON ALL YOUR DEVICES AND SIGN IN WATCH SUMMERSLAM. DON’T WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE TO DO SO WE WANT TO SEND OUT A BIG THANK YOU TO THE BLACK KEYS FOR “GO,” AN OFFICIAL THEME SONG OF WWE SUMMERSLAM, FROM THE ALBUM “LET’S ROCK,” AVAILABLE NOW ON APPLE MUSIC AND SPOT FILE. TWO WEEKS AGO ON “SMACKDOWN” LIVE, A VERY SPECIAL KING’S COURT WITH A VERY SPECIAL GUEST, TRISH STRATUS THAT WAS INTERRUPTED BY THE QUEEN. >>THE GREATEST MOMENT OF — HASN’T HAPPENED YET BECAUSE AT SUMMERSLAM, THE QUEEN CHALLENGES YOU! NOTHING? WOW. I MEAN, I EXPECTED MORE OUT OF THE SEVEN-TIME WOMEN’S CHAMPION. BUT YOU KNOW WHAT, I KNOW WHAT IT IS. SINCE THE WWE HAS EVOLVED AND WE’RE NO LONGER MODELS SHAKING THEIR ASSETS, WE ARE WOMEN CHANGING THE INDUSTRY. TRAIL BLAZERS LIKE ME.>>LET ME REMIND YOU, THERE WOULD BE NO TRAIL FOR YOU TO BLAZE IF IT WASN’T FOR ME. YOU MORE THAN ANYONE SHOULD KNOW THAT TO BE THE WOMAN, YOU NEED TO BEAT THE WOMAN. >>YOU WANT YOUR MATCH AT SUMMERSLAM? YOU’VE GOT YOUR MATCH AT SUMMERSLAM. >>WELCOME TO YOUR NIGHTMARE, TRISH, BECAUSE I’M GOING TO MAKE YOU BOW DOWN TO THE QUEEN. WHOOO! JONATHAN: CLEARLY, GUYS, I DON’T THINK CHARLOTTE FLAIR SAW THAT SLAP COMING. CHARLEY: NO WAY THAT SHE DID. JONATHAN: WELL, WHAT IT DID LEAD TO WAS THIS TONIGHT. >>GENTLEMEN, PLEASE WELCOME THE QUEEN, CHARLOTTE FLAIR. CHARLOTTE, TONIGHT YOU FACE OFF AGAINST WWE HALL OF FAMER TRISH STRATUS BUT, AS WE JUST SAW LAST WEEK ON SHACKDOWN — “SMACKDOWN” LIVE, TRISH SAID SHE WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL OUR HISTORY-MAKING OPPORTUNITIES. >>THEN SHE SLAPPED ME. I PROBABLY DESERVED IT BUT SHE’S GOING TO GET A RECEIPT TONIGHT. TRISH WANTS TO REWRITE HISTORY BECAUSE OF WOMEN LIKE HER THAT STARTED THE EVOLUTION. NO, IT’S BECAUSE OF LEGITIMATE ATHLETES LIKE ME WHO STARTED THE EVOLUTION. I GET IT. SHE’S PROBABLY SITTING AT HOME, BORED PLAYING WITH HER KIDS REMINISCING ABOUT THAT ONE LAST BIG MATCH. BUT THE PROBLEM ABOUT REMINISCING IS, IT’S NEVER AS GOOD AS YOU REMEMBER AND TRISH STRATUS WAS NEVER AS GOOD AS ME BECAUSE I AM THE QUEEN OF ALL ERAS AND TONIGHT TRISH IS GOING TO BOW DOWN TO ME. WHOOO! JONATHAN: YOU KNOW, THE TERM “DREAM MATCH” IS THROWN AROUND SOMETIMES TOO MUCH BUT TONIGHT WHEN YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT THE WOMEN’S DIVISION AND HISTORY IN THE WWE, THIS IS CERTAINLY A DREAM MATCH. BETH: 100%. JONATHAN: TRISH SAID IT. TO BE THE WOMAN YOU HAVE TO BEAT THE WOMAN AND TONIGHT CHARLOTTE HAS THAT CHANCE THAT SHE’S NEVER HAD BEFORE. BETCHT? BETH: IF CHARLOTTE IS LOOKING TO CEMENT HER LEGACY AS THE WOMAN OF ALL ERAS, BEAT TRISH STRATUS WOULD BE THE FIRST PLACE TO START. TWO WOMEN NACHE A COMBINED 16-TIME CHAMPIONSHIP REIGNS BETWEEN THEM. CHARLOTTE HAS HER WORK COME OUT OF. I’VE BEEN IN THE RING WITH TRISH STRATUS AND I’VE ALSO COME OUT OF RETIREMENT FOR A MATCH. I KNOW THE STRUGGLES TRISH HAS GONE THROUGH. TRISH DOESN’T GO HALFWAY WITH ANYTHING SO I THINK IF CHARLOTTE THINKS SHE’S GOING TO HAVE AN EASY NOITHS TONIGHT SHE HAS ANOTHER THING COMING. DAVID: I THINK CHARLOTTE LOOKS EXTREMELY CONFIDENT. DID YOU SEE HER REACTION TO THAT SLAM? SHE JUST LAUGHED IT OFF. CHARLEY: SHE’S AT THE TOP OF HER GAME. JONATHAN: CAN YOU THINK, IF SOMEHOW TRISH STRATUS IS ABLE TO DIG DEEP AND WIN HERE TONIGHT, WOW. CHARLEY: I WOULDN’T PUT IT PAST HER BUT CHARLOTTE IS AT THE TOP OF HER GAME. JONATHAN: SWITCHING GEARS NOW, TONIGHT, HOW ABOUT FINN BáLOR AND BRAY WYATT? MAYBE THE MOST UNUSUAL MATCH ON THE ENTIRE CARD. INSTEAD OF THE OLD SCHOOL EATER OF WORLDS OR EVEN THE JOLLY CARDIGAN WEARING CHILDREN’S TELEVISION HOST. BAYLOR WILL BE SQUARING UP AGAINST THE FIEND. ♪ >>PREVIOUSLY ON THE FIREFLY HOME RUN FUN HOUSE — DID YOU MISME? THIS IS THE FIREFLY FUN HOUSE. THIS IS MY SPECIAL PLACE. WOWY, WE’RE GOING TO HAVE SO MUCH FUN HERE?>>WHAT’S THAT? >>THERE’S NO TIME FOR GAMES. BUT DON’T WORRY, THERE’S STILL A LOT OF DARKNESS IN THIS OLD NOTHING IN. ♪ >>ERASE YOUR MIND. >>SO WHAT COW SAY? >>FINN BáLOR.>>DO YOU WANT TO SEE MY SECRET? >>FINN BáLOR. [CHILDREN LAUGHING] ♪ [LAUGHTER]>>I DON’T KNOW HOW BRAY WYATT’S MIND WORKS BUT THE PUPPETS AND HIS WHOLE NEW FIEND PERSONA. CLEARLY BRAY IS MORE TWISTED AND MESSED UP THAN EVER. BUT I’VE STARED FEAR IN THE EYES BEFORE. I DIDN’T BACK DOWN THEN AND I’M NOT GOING TO BACK DOWN NOW. >>HI, FINN. MERCY, RAMBLING RABBIT AND I ARE SUCH HUMONGOUS FANS OF YOURS. IRKED WARN YOU, THOUGH. WHILE YOU ARE AN EXTRAORDINARY MAN, THE FRIEND IS NO MAN. THE FRIEND IS AN ABOMINATION. THE FRIEND IS POWER. THE FIEND REMEMBERS. THE FRIEND IS COMING FOR HIM. [INDISCERNIBLE] SAM: I CAN’T WAIT FOR THIS MATCH. WE’VE BEEN WAITING FOR IT FOR MONTHS. TO SEE THE FRIEND FOR THE FIRST TIME, IT’S GOING TO BE A MASSACRE. GOD FORBID, FINN BáLOR, PUT THE PAINT ON, SUMMON THE EGO AND ACTUALLY WIN A MATCH. FINN BáLOR CAN’T CONQUER THIS NEW VERSION OF BRAY WYATT. A HORROR MOVIE IS GOING TO EXPLODE IN THE — EXPLODE IN THE RING. J.B.L.: SO FINN BáLOR, WHO HAS DEFENDED CHAMPIONSHIPS ALL OVER THE WORLD HAS ZERO CHANCE? SAM: ZERO. HE’S NOT THE DEMON, HE’S FINN BáLOR. HE’S COMING OUT TO TAKE ON THIS ENTITY. WE SAW WHAT HE DID TO KURT ANGLE. WE SAW WHAT HE DID TO FINN BáLOR NOT TOO LONG AGO. FINN BáLOR MUCH AN EGO LIKE NOBODY ON THE ROSTER BECAUSE HE’S NOT GOING TO BE ABLE TO BEAT — J.B.L.: WHAT CHAMPION HASN’T HAD AN EGO? YOU KNOW — YOU THINK RANDY ORTON DOESN’T HAVE AN EGO, TRIPLE H DOESN’T HAVE AN EGO. . OF COURSE HE HAS AN EGO BUT IF I’M PUTTING MONEY ON IT I’M BETTING MONEY ON THE FRIEND BECAUSE WE’VE NOT SEEN THIS BECAUSE STYLES MAKE MATCHUPS. WE HAVE THIS CRAZY FIEND AGAINST ONE OF THE MOST TECHNICAL AND EXCELLENT WRESTLERS WE’VE EVER SEEN IN FINN BáLOR. SAM: I THINK FINN BáLOR IS GOING TO DISAPPOINT LIKE HE HAS MANY TIMES BEFORE. SOMEBODY WHO DOESN’T DISAPPOINTS IS A MAN ON THE PANEL RIGHT NOW, IS THAT RIGHT, COACH? CHARLEY: I THINK IT’S SAFE TO SAY WE KNOW FOR A FACT BRAY WYATT IS A VERY TWISTED, DISTURBED MAN AND MICK FOLEY CAN ATTEST TO THIS. HE’S JOINING US TO PREVIEW IN UPCOMING MATCH. AND NICK, YOU DID HAVE THE UNFORTUNATE RUN-IN WITH BRAY WYATT AT THE “RAW” REUNION. THANK YOU TALK ABOUT THAT? MICK: YEAH, I WAS HOPE FOR A FEEL-GOOD MOMENT WITH A LOT OF FRIENDS AT THE “RAW” REUNION. A — THE FRIEND INTERRUPTED IT. THAT WAS THE HALLMARK OF MY CAREER. I NEVER ONCE FELT HELPLESS THE WAY I DID THAT EVENING. IT WAS A VERY OMINOUS, THREATENING MOMENT AND ONE THAT TOOK ME A WHILE TO RECOVER FROM. JONATHAN: MICK, THE FRIEND USED THE MANDIBLE CLAW, A THEME OF YOUR CAREER. MICK: WHEN I INTRODUCED MANY OSAKO TO A MOVE THAT HAD ALREADY BEEN ESTABLISHED, IT TOOK ON A PERILOUS FEELING. BUT YOU PRESS ON THE NERVES AND I WAS SPECIFICALLY LOOKING FOR A MOVE THAT WOULD ALLOW ME TO GET INTO THE HEAD OF THE UNDERTAKER. IT’S A MOVE THAT DOESN’T ONLY PARALYZE PHYSICALLY BUT EMOTIONALLY AS WELL AND I WOULD SAY BASED ON FIRST HAND KNOWLEDGE THAT THE FRIEND HAS MATCHED THAT ART. JONATHAN: YOU’RE ALSO A MAN THAT MASTERED THE ART OF CHANGING WHO YOU WERE FROM TIME TO TIME. NOBODY EVER REALLY KNEW WHICH MICK FOLEY OR CACTUS JACK WAS GOING TO COME OIPT AND THAT’S KIND OF WHAT THE FRIEND HAS BECOME. HOW DO YOU GET INTO THAT MINDSET WHERE FROM ONE DAY TO THE NEXT, YOU DON’T KNOW WHEN YOU’RE GOING TO BE? MICK: I THINK IT’S MORE IMPORTANT FOR THE OPPONENT TO WONDER. NOW THE FRIEND HAS SET THE ABLE IN A WAY THAT FINN BáLOR IS NOT JUST WORRIED ABOUT WINNING THE MATCH, HE’S THINKING ABOUT SURVIVING A MATCH AND ONCE YOU GET INSIDE YOUR OPPONENT’S HELD TO THAT POINT, THE VICTORY IS SECONDARY TO JUST SURVIVING INTACT. JONATHAN: WELL, MICK, THANK OU VERY MUCH. LOOKING FORWARD TO YOUR ANALYSIS. YOU’RE GOING TO STAY WITH US FOR THE NEXT LITTLE BIT. MICK: I SURE WILL. BETH: WE’LL TRY AND MAKE YOU SAFE HERE. JONATHAN: WE HAVE A LOT MORE TO GET TO HERE TONIGHT. WE HAVE THREE MATCHES ON THE KICKOFF SHOW. THAT WILL BE TAKING PLACE LIVE. THE CRUISERWEIGHT TITLE ON THE LINE. YOU THINK THIS IS GOING TO BE ACTION PACKED? OH, YEAH. DREW GULAK AND ONEY LORCAN GO TASTE TO — FACE-TO-FACE LIVE HERE ON THE KICK SHOW IN A LITTLE BIT. CHARLEY: ALSO, APOLLO CRUISE AREAING OFF HEARNES BUDDY MURPHY. JONATHAN: ALSO TONIGHT, HOW ABOUT THE WWE WOMEN’S TAG TEAM TITLES ON THE LINE? ALEXA BLISS, NIKKI CROSS. NEW BEST FRIENDS, NEW CHAMPIONS, TAKING ON FORMER CHAMPIONS, THE IICONICS HERE LAST TIME TONIGHT. ANOTHER MATCH-UP TONIGHT. K.O. AND THE BEST IN THE WORLD, SHAYNA BASZLER — SHANE MCMAHON. SINCE KEVIN OWENS CAME BACK, HE FEELS LIKE SHANE HAS I JACKED “RAW” AND “SMACKDOWN” LIVE AND MADE IT HIS OWN PERSONAL LOOK AT ME, ME, ME SHOW. WELL, K.O. IN HIS OWN HOME COUNTRY WANTS TO STOP THAT EGO TONIGHT.>>THE BEST IN THE WORLD — >>I’M NOT THE BEST IN THE WORLD BECAUSE I WON A TROPHY. I’M THE BEST IN THE WORLD BECAUSE I HAVE BORN THAT WAY. >>THIS IS NOT YOUR RING. THIS IS NOT YOUR SHOW.>>I WATCHED THE ENTIRE MCMAHON FAMILY COME OUT AND SAY FROM NOW ON WE’RE GOING TO LISTEN TO THE FANS AND GIVE THE AUDIENCE WHAT THEY WANT BUT THE ONLY THING THAT’S HAPPENED IS SHANE MCMAHON HAS GOTTEN MORE POWER, MORE AUTHORITY AND MORE TV TIME THAN ANYONE AND TRUST ME WHEN I SAY THAT NOBODY WATCHING EVER WANTED THAT!>>ENOUGH OUT OF YOU. ENOUGH. >>YOU NEED TO HEAR THIS! >>CUT HIS MIKE OFF. SECURITY, GET HIM OUT OF HERE.>>THE ONE THING I’M NOT GOING TO TOLERATE IS INSUBORDINATION. LIKE IT OR NOT, KEVIN. I’M YOUR BOSS. I’M YOUR BOSS SO TONIGHT YOU HAVE THE NIGHT OFF. I HOPE THIS DEMONSTRATES A COUPLE OF THINGS. I DO NOT HAVE TO RULE WITH AN IRON FIST.>>UH-OH. KEVIN OWENS!>>”SMACKDOWN” LIVE HAS BEEN A ONE-MAN SHOW FOR FAR TOO LONG NOW. WHY DON’T YOU PUT YOURSELF IN A MATCH IN SUMMERSLAM AGAINST ME AND IF YOU BEAT ME, I’LL QUIT.>>KEVIN OWENS, AS IT PERTAINS TO YOUR CHALLENGE, I ACCEPT. SINCE THE MCMAHON FAMILY IS ALWAYS TALKING ABOUT HOW THEY DO WHAT’S BEST FOR BUSINESS, I AM ASKING YOU AT SUMMERSLAM YOU PUT YOUR CAREER ON THE LINE TOO. SHANE: THAT WOULD BE AN EMPHATIC NO.>>HEY, WAIT A MINUTE! SHANE MCMAHON’S BUDDY ALLIES AND HAS TURNED INTO A TWO-ON-ONE SITUATION BUT KEVIN OWENS IS FIGHTING BACK. AND HE’S TEAGUE UP ON THE PROFESSIONAL MODEL. — TEEING UP ON THE PROFESSIONAL MODEL. SHANE MCMAHON TAKES DOWN KEVIN OWENS!>>MCMAHON, SUCH A LETHAL STRIKER, AS OWENS IS FINDING OUT FIRST HAND. WAIT A MINUTE, WAIT A MINUTE. NO, NO, NO, OH! THIS COULD VERY WELL HAPPEN SUNDAY AT SUMMERSLAM AND WE’LL NEVER SEE KEVIN IN WWE AGAIN. >>THAT’S WHAT YOU GET BECAUSE YOU ARE DONE AND! YOU ARE OVER. OUT OF MY LIFE! >>KEVIN, YOU ARE A FORMER UNIVERSAL CHAMPION, A FORMER UNITED STATES CHAMP, A FORMER INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMP. NOW WITH ALL OF YOUR ACCOMPLISHMENTS, IS IT SAFE TO SAY THAT TONIGHT IS THE BIGGEST NIGHT OF YOUR CAREER? >>I WOULD NEVER WANT TO DOWNPLAY ANY OF THOSE MOMENTS YOU JUST MENTIONED, WINNING ALL THOSE TOTALS. EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THOSE ARE MOMENTS I’LL REMEMBER FOREVER BUT TONIGHT I AM FIGHTING FOR MY CAREER. I’VE HEARD IT COUNTLESS TIMES. PEOPLE HAVE BEEN ASKING ME WHY ISN’T SHANE’S CAREER ON THE LINE? LIKE I SAID LAST TUESDAY ON “SMACKDOWN” LIVE. SHANE’S LAST NAME IS MCMAHON SO THAT MEANS HE CAN SAY WHATEVER HE WANTS, DO WHATEVER HE WANTS AND IT ALSO MEANS HE HAS TO INTEGRITY AND NO PRIDE, ALL RIGHT? AND I PROVED THAT LAST TUESDAY WHEN I DID CHALLENGE HIM TO PUT HIS CAREER ON THE LINE TOO AND HE REFUSED. BUT WHAT’S IMPORTANT IS THE FACT THAT TONIGHT I HAVE HIM IN THE RING AND THAT’S WHY I PUT MY CAREER ON THE LINE FROM THE GET-GO WHEN I ISSUED THIS CHALLENGE BECAUSE I WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT HE WOULD ACCEPT. I WANTED TO MAKE SURE 100% THAT I WOULD GET HIM IN THE RING IN TORONTO AT SUMMERSLAM AND HERE WE ARE. AND I NEEDED THAT TO HAPPEN. BECAUSE TONIGHT I PLAN ON TAKING OUT YEARS OF FRUSTRATION BY BEATING THE LIVING HELL OUT OF SHANE MCMAHON AND SHANE, THE MARQUEE MIGHT READ SUMMERSLAM BUT TRUST ME, WHEN I SAY TONIGHT IS THE KEVIN OWENS SHOW. SAM: I CAN BUY INTO KEVIN OWENS’ BODGE LOGIC, THAT EVEN IF SHANE MCMAHON PUT HIS CAREER ON THE LINE, THERE’S NO GUARANTEE THAT SIPLATION — STIPULATION WOULD BE MELT. BUT YOU HAVE SHANE MCMAHON WHO JUST IN RECENT MEMORY HAS DEFEATED ROMAN REIGNS. HE DEFEATED THAT GOOF WHO GAVE UP HIS SUMMERSLAM MATCH, THE MIZ, TWICE. HE GAVE UP HIS WORLD TROPHY AND ANYTIME WE NEED SOMETHING SIMILAR ON THE SCREEN, SHANE MCMAHON DELIVERS. J.B.L.: I DON’T BUY ANY OF THE LOGIC. KEVIN OWENS TO ME IS A VERY TALENTED PERFORMER BUT THIS QUEST HE HAS TO APPEASE “SMACKDOWN” FANS ISN’T LOGICAL TO ME. YOU’VE SEEN WHAT SHANE MCMAHON IS WILLING TO DO TO WIN A MATCH. I JUST THINK THAT KEVIN OWENS HAS BITTEN OFF MORE THAN HE CAN CLUE FOR THE WRONG REASONS. SAM: WE KNOW KEVIN OWENS HAS BEEN UNDERHANDED IN THE PAST. WE TALKED ABOUT THE UNIVERSAL TITLE. IT WAS HANDLED TO HIM. DO YOU THINK KEVIN OWENS SAW AN OPPORTUNITY IN SAYING I COULD HAVE MY NAME ON THE MARQUEE TOO? J.B.L.: YES, KEVIN OWENS IS UNDERHASN’T — UNDERHANDED. ABSOLUTELY. HE IS AN INCREDIBLE PERFORMER. THE SUCH HE’S WILLING TO GO DO ON THE TOP ROPE OR THE FLOOR, WHATEVER IT IS. HE’S WILLING TO DO WHATEVER IT DOES. I THINK AND KEVIN IS ACTUALLY DOING FOR THE “SMACKDOWN” FANS, HE IS HORRIBLY MISGUIDED AND NOT GIVING ENOUGH CREDIT TO THE MAN HE’S FACING, WHO IS A MCMAHON, BUY THE WAY. SAM: I HAVE TO SEND IT BACK TO THE PANEL. BETH: SAM, NO ONE WANTS TO HEAR YOU TALK FOR THE ENTIRE PRESHOW. THEY TALKED ABOUT KEVIN OWENS, A VERY SMART AND CALCULATED MAN BUT HE IS PUTTING HIS CAREER ON THE LINE FOR THIS MATCH. IS THE RISK WORTH THE REGARD? DAVID: I DON’T KNOW IF IT IS. KEVIN KEEPS SAYING WHY ISN’T SHANE PUTTING HIS CAREER ON THE LINE? I’LL TELL YOU WHY BECAUSE KEVIN IS THE ONE WHO ISSUED THIS CHALLENGE AND PUT HIS CAREER ON THE LINE, PUTT HIS FOOT IN THE MOUTH. SHOULD SHANE DO THIS? MORALLY, MAYBE BUT BUSINESS, STRATEGICALLY, NO WAY. BETH: OWENS FEELS STRONGLY ABOUT STANDING UP TO THE TYRANNY THAT SHANE MCMAHON REPRESENTS AND I THINK HE’S WILLING TO PUT HIS CAREER ON THE LINE AND I HAVE TO RESPECT THAT. DAVID: THAT’S GREAT BUT HE MAY BE SITTING AT HOME VALIANTLY IN HIS COUCH. SAM: A SHOW OF HANDS FROM EVERYONE HERE WHO HAS ENDED THEIR CAREER WITH A STIPULATION MATCH. THAT WOULD BE ME. YOU’RE GAMEFULLY EMPLOYED ONE DAY, YOU’RE OUT OF WORK THE NEXT. TRIPLE H ENDED MY CAREER AND KEVIN OWENS IS LOOKING AT THAT VERY REAL POSSIBILITY. A MAN WHO’S ALWAYS PRIDED HIMSELF — AND THAT COULD ALL BE DONE BY THE TIME WE WAKE UP. CHARLEY: WHAT’S THE IMIMMEDIATE REACTION IN YOUR MIND? DAVID: WHAT’S GOING ON. SHANE HAS A LOT OF PRIDE AND THAT PRIDE COULD BE HIS UN DOING. SHANE JUST DOESN’T WANT TO WIN, HE WANTS TO WIN IN SPECTACULAR MCMAHON FASHION. JONATHAN: AND THERE WAS A SUMMERSLAM WHERE SHANE TOOK FOUR CHAIRS TO ME. AND I’M STILL FEELING THAT. MICK, THANK YOU VERY MUCH. ENJOY THE SHOW TONIGHT. MICK: THANK YOU, GUYS, I WILL. JONATHAN: WWE HALL OF FAMER MICK FOLEY. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. WE ARE SOLD OUT HERE AT THE SCOTIABANK ARENA AND EVERY SINGLE SEAT WILL BE FILLED AS WE TAKE OVER THE WWE NETWORK TONIGHT 7:00 EASTERN, 4:00 PACIFIC LIVE FROM TORONTO.>>WHAT DO WE HAVE HERE?>>OH, BABY.>>OOH. >>LONG TIME NO ASSOCIATION BROTHER.>>YEAH, RIGHT? >>LOOKS LYKES LIKE YOU FELLAS HAVE BEEN PRETTY BUSY HERE. >>THAT’S RIGHT.>>WE’VE BEEN BUSY RUNNING THE SHOW AND MAKING SURE THE ENTIRE WORLD KNOWS THAT IT’S ACTUALLY THE O.C.’S WORLD AND THEY’RE JUST LIVING IN IT.>>THAT’S RIGHT AND THAT CONTINUES TONIGHT WHEN THE PHENOMENAL BROTHER FINISHES OFF RICOCHET FOR THE FINAL TIME!>>HEY, HEY, SPEAKING OF TONIGHT — >>YEAH.>>MY MAN HERE, LITTLE BROTHER, HAS A MATCH AGAINST THE FRIEND, BRAY WYATT. THE PSYCHOTIC MAN. I’VE BEEN GETTING GOOD LUCK WISHES ALL WEEK BUT THE TRUTH IS, MAYBE YOU’RE THE ONE THAT NEEDS A LITTLE LUCK TONIGHT.>>YEAH, MAYBE. THINK YOU MIGHT.>>A.J. — THAT’S GOT NOTHING TO DO WITH I. TONIGHT I’M READY TO PLAY BRAY WYATT’S MIND GAMES. NO, I DEBT IT. I’M JUST SAYING DID YOU SEE WHAT HE DID TO MICK FOLEY, KURT ANGLE? IT WOULD BE A SHAME IF THAT HAPPENED TO YOU. HERE’S WHAT THE O.C. IS OFFERING. IF YOU NEED OUR HELP, JUST SAY WHEN. >>WHEN, WHEN, WHEN. WHEN. >>LOOK AT THAT. BEAUTIFUL. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS — THERE YOU GO. >>LOOK, HE’S GETTING IT. SEE HIM CRAMPING UP? LOOK AT HIM LOOKING AT IT. JONATHAN: IT IS HARD NOT TO BE ENTERTAINED AND WONDER IF FINN BáLOR WILL ACTUALLY SAY WHEN TONIGHT TO THE O.C. CHARLEY: EVERYONE IS DOWN ON HIM AHEAD OF THIS MATCH. JONATHAN: WE DON’T KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT LATER TONIGHT BUT CERTAINLY A.J. STYLES FULL OF CONFIDENCE. DOWNLOAD THE WWE APP ON ALL YOUR DEVICES AND SIGN UP TO WATCH SUMMERSLAM. A.J. G STYLES ALSO IS GOING TO BE VERY BUSY TONIGHT, TAKING ON RICK SHEA FOR THE KWLITHES UNITED STATES CHAMPIONSHIP. RICOCHET DAZZLED THE WORLD WHEN HE CLIMBED THE TOP OF THE LADDER EARLY IN HIS CLEAR. QUICKLY LEARNED WHAT IT’S LIKE TOCK THE HUNTED INSTEAD OF THE HUNTER. TONIGHT HE’S THE HUNTER AND HE’S GOING AFTER THE CHAMPION A.J. STYLES.>>A.J. STYLES AN OPPORTUNITY TO WIN THE UNITED STATES CHAMPIONSHIP. HE WAS FIRED UP BY HIS BUDDIES ANDERSON AND GALLOWS. >>FOR ALL YOUR TALK ABOUT US LOSING YOUR EDGE, WHAT HAPPENS TO YOU? THE STIFLES THEY KNOW WOULD WALK UP TO RICOCHET AND SLAM HIM ACROSS THE FACE.>>I’M TAKING THAT TITLE. >>A.J. STYLES IS NOT THE UNITED STATES CHAMPION, AT LEAST NOT YET.>>STYLES HAS THE CHAMPION ON THE ROPES.>>OH, MY GOD.>>OUTRAGES. SHOULDERS DOWN TO RETAIN THE TITLES AND HE GOT IT. [BELL]>>RICOCHET WITH THE VICTORY. >>RESPECT BETWEEN TWO INCREDIBLE ATHLETES. I DON’T KNOW IF GALLOWS AND ANDERSON ARE MOCKING THIS OR — >>OH! MY GOD, STYLES. >>WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?>>OH, MY GOD, NOT FROM UP, FROM A.J., THE STYLES CLASH!>>STYLES, GALLOWS AND ANDERSON, THE O.C. RIDES ONCE AGAIN.>>A.J. STYLES VS. RICOCHET. FOR THE UNITED STATES CHAMPIONSHIP. >>KARL ANDERSON, AND LUKE GALLOWS. THIS MATCH HASN’T EVEN STARTED. >>A.J. STYLES FIRED UP.>>YOUR DISRESPECT FOR T.J. STYLES — >>AND THE UNITED STATES CHAMPION IS ROLLING AND NOW TAKES OUT ANDERSON AND GALLOWS! >>GALLOWS, THE OFFICIAL DIDN’T SEE IT. OH, NO, NO, NO. >>OH, MY GOD.>>MY GOD, NOT FROM THERE. YOU GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!>>STYLES CONNECTS. >>RICOCHET HASN’T MOVED. STYLES WINS THE UNITED STATES TITLE! >>WE ARE THE MOST DOMINANT GROUP IN THE WWE, THE O.C.>>NO ONE DOES IT BETTER THAN RICOCHET FROM THE TOP ROPE. >>ANDRADE IN THE DROP ZONE. RICK SHOW, HOOK OF THE LEG. HE’S GOING TO SUMMERSLAM! >>AT SUMMER SLAMMING WHEN I BEAT A.J. STYLES AND RAISE THE U.S. TITLE OVER MY HEAD ONCE AGAIN, THEN EVERYONE WILL BELIEVE, AND SO WILL I. >>THIS IS A.J. STYLES! >>A.J. STYLES VS. RICOCHET FOR THE UNITED STATES CHAMPIONSHIP. SAM: IT WASN’T THAT LONG AGO THAT I WAS ASKING A.J. STYLES HERE ON THE KICKOFF SHOW WHAT HAPPENED? WHAT HAPPENED TO THE CHAMPIONSHIP-WINNING WAYS OF A.J. STYLES. I’M ASSUMING THAT MOTIVATED HIM BECAUSE THEY’RE BACK. HE’S FOUND HIMSELF — COMING BACK TOGETHER WITH GALLOWS AND ANDERSON HAS CREATED A NEW, REFRESHED, EVEN MORE DIFFICULT TO DEFEAT A.J. STYLES AND SOMEBODY THEY LOOK FORWARD TO WATCHING EVERY WEEK. THIS MATCH WITH RICOCHET I THINK IS GOING TO BE ONE FOR THE AGES. J.B.L.: I AGREE WITH YOU. I THINK THE END JUSTICE THE MEANS. I REMEMBER WHEN SCORPIO CAME IN AND HE WAS DOING STUFF PEOPLE COULD NOT BELIEVE. LIKE HE DEFIED GRAVITY. THIS KILLED RICOCHET LIKE SCORPION TIMES 10. I HOPE GALLOWS AND ANDERSON DON’T GET INVOLVED FOR SELFISH REASONS BECAUSE YOU’RE RIGHT, THIS COULD ABSOLUTELY BE A CLASSIC. SAM: YOU’VE LAD MANY PARTNERS THROUGHOUT YOUR CAREER. WHEN YOU’RE IN THE RING WITH SOMEBODY THAT LASER FOCUSED, THOSE MOVES TAKE LASER FOCUS. YOU CAN’T CONCENTRATE ON THREE PEOPLE. GALLOWS AND — BEING AT RINGSIDE I HAVE TO BELIEVE IS GOING TO BE A HUGE — J.B.L.: YOU HAVE ONE MOMENT IN TIME TO WIN MATCHES AND CHAMPIONSHIPS. I’M HIRED — RETIRED NOW IN PER MOIMED PLAYING GOLF. YOU KNOW HOW MUCH I’D LIKE TO BE HERE WRESTLING? ONE MORE VICTORY, ONE MORE CHAMPIONSHIP? THEY ARE HARD TO COME BY. YOU DO WHATEVER IS NECESSARY TO WIN AND A.J. STYLES HAS REALIZED THAT AND IS MORE DANGEROUS BECAUSE OF A. IN SAM: I THINK WE AGREE THESE TWO ARE GOING TO BRING OUT THE BEST IN EACH OTHER. WHAT DO YOU THINK? JONATHAN: I THINK WE’D ALL LIKE TO SEE J.B.L. GO BACK TO BERMUDA RIGHT NOW. I THINK RICOCHET THOUGHT MAYBE HE WON THE TITLE TOO EARLY IN HIS CAREER AND HE’S NOW BEEN BAPTIZED INTO WHAT BEING IN THE BUSINESS AND THE TOP LEVEL IS ALL ABOUT. DAVID: RICOCHET IS ASSUMER TALENTED WITH A HUGE HARM. STATEMENT YOU HAVE A.J. STYLES, ALL THREE OF THOSE GUYS HAVE GOLD AROUND THEIR WASTE FOR A REASON. THEY COULD BE ONE OF THE MOST POWERFUL THREESOMES TO GO DOWN IN THE WWE, PERIOD. BETH: I WOULD AGREE WITH THAT. JONATHAN: BETWHEELED NEED TO TALK ABOUT SOMETHING THAT’S BEEN AT THE TOP OF THE WWE UNIVERSE FOR SEVERAL WEEKS. WHO IS BEHIND THE ATTACKS ON ONE ROMAN REIGNS? >>THE BIG DOG ROMAN REIGNS IS ON HIS WAY AND ROMAN SAID HE’D GIVE US A LITTLE INSIGHT IN WHO HIS OPPONENT FOR SUMMERSLAM WILL BE. HERE HE IS. ROMAN, WATCH OUT. AH! >>NEED HELP. >>DON’T MOVE.>>YOU OK?>>GUYS — >>STILL THERE. >>YOU ALL RIGHT? COME ON, LET’S GET YOU CHECKED OUT. YOU OK? >>I GOT PEOPLE ACCUSING ME FOR TRYING TO TAKE OUT ROMAN REIGNS SO THE SHOW IS GETTING SHUT DOWN UNTIL I GET THE APOLOGY THEY DESERVE! ROME SEASON IN THE PARKING LOT SO HOW CAN — HOW ABOUT I GO — HIS I CAN’T SEE.>>YOU ALREADY KNOW — OH, I’M NOT GROWING TO DO ANYTHING? I’M STANDING RIGHT HERE, ABOUT TO DO SOMETHING. [TIRES SCREECHING]>>HEY! >>GATE MEDIC OUT HERE! GET A MEDIC. [TIRES SCREECHING]>>NEED SOME HELP? COME ON.>>– ♪ TIRES SCREECHING]>>SHOULD BE ON THEIR WAY. YOU ALL RIGHT, MAN? HOLD ON A SECRETARY. — A SECOND.>>HI, I NEED EVERYTHING OUT. BOILED, YOU AIN’T GOING NOWHERE. I SAW YOU IN THAT HALLWAY SO THAT MAKES ME ASSUME THAT YOU DID IT OR YOU KNOW EXACTLY WHO DID I.>>I DON’T KNOW WHO DID IT AND IF I DID, I STILL WOULDN’T TELL ALL DAMN THING. AHHH! >>WHO DID IT? I’M TELLING WHO YOU DID IT. >>RUN! ♪ JONATHAN: CLEARLY ROMAN REIGNS HAS BEEN VERY EMOTIONAL BECAUSE HE HAS NO IDEA WHO IS BEHIND HIS ATTACKS AND I THINK I WOULD BE AS WELL. BY THE WAY, BUDDY MURPHY HAS A MATCH HERE ON THE KICKOFF SHOW. YOU WONDER WHAT KIND OF CONDITION HE’LL BE IN. BETCHTS, WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF ALL THESE DIFFERENT ATTACKS? IT’S BEEN SAMOA JOE, DREW MCINTYRE AND OTHERS THAT FEEL HAVE SUSPECTED. BETH: ROMAN REIGNS IS LOOKED UPON AS A LOCKER ROOM LEADER. I DO RESPECT THE FACTS THAT HE’S TAKING MATTERS INTO HIS OBSERVE HANDS, NOT LETTING ANXIETY AND STRESS EAT HIM UP INSIDE. I WANT TO KNOW THE THRUCHTE AS MUCH AS HE DID — DOES. CHARLEY: DAVID, YOU’RE A LAWYER. WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF ALL THIS? DAVID: I THINK YOU HAVE TO FORGET EVERYTHING THAT BUDDY MEASURE IF I SAID. THIS WAS A COERCED CONFESSION. SO WE DON’T KNOW WHO’S BEHIND THIS BUT REALLY, I MEAN, YOU CAN’T SAY THAT ROMAN IS YOU’RE INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY. JONATHAN: I THINK WE ALL ARE READY TO FIND OUT AND CERTAINLY ROMAN RAINS IS READY TO FIND OUT AND WHY THEY’VE BEEN WANTING TO DO THIS TO HIM. I TOLD YOU ABOUT THE SUPERSIZED KICKOFF SHOW. TIME FOR OUR FIRST LIVE MATCH. RINGSIDE, NIGEL, AIDEN ENGLISH. GENTLEMEN?>>A SOLDOUT CROWD STILL FILING INTO THE SCOTIABANK ARENA. BUT WE’RE GETTING READY FOR THE FIRST OF 12 CHAMPIONSHIPS TONIGHT. THIS COULD BE THE HARDEST HILTING MATCH.>>100%. ONEY LORCAN HAS TO BRING EVERYTHING HE HAS AGAINST A VERY DETERMINED AND DIFFERENT DREW GULAK. >>THAT’S RIGHT.

THE LAST FEW MONTHS WE’VE SEEN IT. >>DREW GULAK’S PATH TO THE CHAMPIONSHIP — LET’S NOT FORGET, IT WAS DREW GULAK WHO WAS CHALLENGING FOR THE CRUISERWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP JUST ONE YEAR AGO AND NOW HE COMES BACK AS CHAMPION. >>IN IS A VERY DIFFERENT DREW GULAK EVER SENSE — SINCE HE RETURNED FROM THAT DYE HIATUS.>>DREW EVEN SAID ON SOCIAL MEDIA, THIS IS A NEW MAN THAT NO ONE NEW. >>CHANGE IS THE LAW OF LIFE. HIS NEW MOTTO IS HE HAS CONTINUED TO EVOLVE IN THE CRUISERWEIGHT DIVISION. NIGEL, WOULD YOU WANT TO TRADE WHOLE FOR WHOLE FOR THE CRUISERWEIGHT CHAMPION? >>I THINK THAT’S THE BEST STRATEGY IN HITTER AND A FRENETIC STRIKER, THAT IS HIS BEST STRATEGY.>>THE SHOULDERS ARE DOWN AND LORCAN ROLLS THROUGH AT TWO.>>ONE OF THE THINGS THAT MAKES THIS MATCH OF UNIQUE. NOT EXACTLY YOUR TYPICAL CRUISERWEIGHTS. HARD HITS, HOLD FOR HOLD, LESS HIGH-FLYING THEN YOU MIGHT TYPICALLY SEE IN A 205 MATCH.>>NOTHING TYPICAL ABOUT ONEY LORCAN. LORCAN’S FATHER WAS A BIT OF A STREET FIGHTER. ONCE LOST HALF OF HIS NOSE IN A BAR FIGHT. OH! OH!>>SHOTS RINGING THROUGH THE SCOTIABANK CENTER AS LORCAN IS RIGHT ON TOP OF THE CRUISERWEIGHT CHAMPION.>>YOU SAW THE WHITES OF DREW GULAK’ EYES LIGHT UP WHEN HE GOT HIT.>>BUT LOOK AT GULAK ANSWERING RIGHT BACK.

SETH ROLLINS, CAN HE SLAY THE BEAST? HE HAS ONE OPPORTUNITY. CHARLEY: AND KOFI KINGSTON REALIZES THE DANGER OF STEPPING INTO THE RING WITH THE VIPER. BUT HAVING SUCH A PERSONAL HISTORY, KINGSTON KNOWS HE HAS TO DEFEND HIS TITLE TONIGHT AT SUMMERSLAM. ALSO, BAYLEY BELIEVES IN HERSELF AS SMACKDOWN WOMEN’S CHAMPION, AND THERE IS NOT ONE WOMAN SHE’S NOT WILLING TO FACE TO PROVE WHY SHE’S THE CHAMPION. TONIGHT, THE CHANCE TO FACE THIS INSPIRATIONAL TITLEHOLDER. CHARLY: TALK ABOUT — JONATHAN: TALKING ABOUT MAYBE THE MOST UNUSUAL MATCHUP, GOING UP AGAINST THE FIEND. THIS WILL BE HIS IN RING DEBUT AS THE FIEND. I DON’T THINK ANYBODY KNOWS WHAT TO EXPECT TONIGHT. CHARLY: THIS EVENING, LOOKING TO GET BACK IN THE CHAMPIONSHIP TAKING ON AJ STYLES, BUT THERE IS THE ADDED THREAT OF THE OC, WHO WILL MAKE RICOCHET’S LIFE A LIVING HELL. JONATHAN: TWO OF THE BIGGEST NAMES IN THE HISTORY OF THE WOMEN’S DIVISION. TRISH STRATUS, IN HER HOMETOWN OF TORONTO, TAKING ON A NINE TIME WOMEN’S CHAMPION AND THE QUEEN, CHARLOTTE FLAIR. CHARLY: THE STAKES ARE EXTREME THE HIGH FOR KEVIN OWENS, AFTER CONSTANTLY COMPLAINING ABOUT SHANE MCMAHON’S SELFISH WAYS. HE CHALLENGED THE BEST IN THE WORLD, PROMISING TO QUIT WWE FOR GOOD IF HE LOSES TO THE COMMISSIONER OF SMACKDOWN LIVE. CHARLY: DOLPH ZIGGLER IS TIRED OF ALL THESE LEGENDS WALKING AROUND, TAKING HIS CAMERA TIME. WELL, GUESS WHAT? GOLDBERG SHOWED UP RECENTLY ON RAW, AND HAD ONE MESSAGE FOR DOLPH ZIGGLER, YOU ARE NEXT. TONIGHT THEY GO ONE-ON-ONE AT SUMMERSLAM. CHARLY: I KNOW NOBODY WANTS TO MISS WHAT’S ABOUT TO GO DOWN IN TORONTO TONIGHT. AS I TOLD YOU, EVERYBODY GET READY RIGHT NOW AND GO TO WWENETWORK.COM TO SIGN UP. WITH YOUR FREE TRIAL, YOU GET SUMMERSLAM ABSOLUTELY FREE FOR NEW SUBSCRIBERS TO THE WWE NETWORK. JONATHAN: ANOTHER FEATURED MATCHUP, THE RAW WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP, BECKY LYNCH, THE MAN, AND NATALYA. NATALYA EARNED THE SPOT BY WINNING A FOUR-WAY EVEN THE NATION MATCH. AND BECKY LYNCH WENT ON SOCIAL MEDIA AND SAID, DON’T BLAME ANYBODY ELSE. YOU NEED TO STAND UP, AND IF YOU HAVE EARNED YOUR SPOT, OWN IT. BECKY LYNCH HAS CERTAINLY EARNED HER SPOT AND RAISED THE LEVEL OF THE ENTIRE WOMEN’S DIVISION. TONIGHT IS A SUBMISSION MATCH, AND BOTH WOMEN FEEL THEY HAVE THE BETTER SUBMISSION MANEUVER. WHO DOES? WE WILL FIND OUT TONIGHT.>>TO THINK THAT I WILL BE GOING BACK TO MY HOME COUNTRY OF CANADA FOR THE CHAMPIONSHIP, WHAT A DREAM COME TRUE.>>YOUR CAREER MEANS SOMETHING, AND I AM IT. IF THERE IS ONE THING I HAVE LEARNED IN ALL THIS, IT’S THAT I DO A LOT BETTER IN WAR THAN IN LOVE.>>BECKY, YOU WANT A WAR? YOU’VE GOT A WAR. ♪>>SHE’S ON A MISSION. ♪>>AT SUMMERSLAM, I’D LIKE TO CHALLENGE BECKY LYNCH TO A SUBMISSION MATCH. MY SUPERIOR SHARPSHOOTER TO HER INFERIOR DISARM HER.>SHE ALREADY LET CANADA DOWN WITH HER WHOLE CAREER, SO WHY STOP NOW? LET HER BE THERE TO SEE HER TAP OUT IN HER OWN COUNTRY.>>ISSUES BETWEEN THEM HAVE GOTTEN DEEPLY PERSONAL, IN SHORT ORDER.>>BECKY LYNCH THINKS SHE BUILT THE WOMEN’S EVOLUTION. WHAT? THIS WOMEN’S EVOLUTION WAS BUILT BY WOMEN LIKE ME. I AM THE ONE THING HER CAREER IS MISSING. AND IN TORONTO, I’LL GIVE HER PEOPLE THE ONE THING THAT THEY NEED. A NEW HERO, ME.>>THEY WILL BE A HUGE CELEBRATION IN CANADA AT SUMMERSLAM WHEN I MAKE HER TAP OUT IN FRONT OF ALL MY PEOPLE.>>BECKY’S VERSUS NATALYA AT SUMMERSLAM! ♪>>LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, PLEASE WELCOME THE WOMAN FACING BECKY LYNCH FOR THE RAW WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP IN A SUBMISSION MATCH, CANADA’S OWN NATALYA.>>A COUPLE WEEKS AGO, BECKY LYNCH CALLED YOU A GOOD GIRL WHO DOESN’T WANT TO GET FIRED. WHAT IS YOUR RESPONSE?>>WELL, ONE MINUTE BECKY LYNCH IS SAYING I AM A GOOD GIRL WHO DOESN’T WANT TO GET FIRED. AND THEN SHE’S A SAYING I AM A BACKSTABBING SNAKE, BECAUSE I HELPED TO TRAIN RONDA ROUSEY. BECKY’S ALL OVER THE PLACE WHEN IT COMES TO DRAGGING ME. BUT WHEN I PUT HER IN A SHARPSHOOTER TONIGHT, SHE’S GOING TO BE GETTING DRAGGED. ALL OVER THE PLACE, BECKY? REALLY? I HAVE MAINTAINED ONE THING AND ONE THING ONLY, SARAH. WHEN I LOCK IN THE SHARPSHOOTER TONIGHT AT SUMMERSLAM IN TORONTO, CANADA, I’M WALKING AWAY THE RAW WOMEN’S CHAMPION.>>UM. OK, SO A LOT OF EMOTIONS RUNNING HIGH. I HAVE A QUESTION FOR THE TWO OF YOU. WHICH SUBMISSION HOLD WOULD YOU LEAST LIKE TO FIND YOURSELF IN?>>ME FIRST?>>AGE BEFORE BEAUTY. [LAUGHTER]>>OK.>>LISTEN, I GO A LONG WAY BACK WITH THE HART FAMILY, ALL THE WAY BACK TO NATALYA’S GRANDPARENTS. I GOT OFF ON THE WRONG FOOT WITH THEM, WHEN I ASKED HOW IT WAS WORKING ON THE PYRAMIDS. [LAUGHTER] THAT DIDN’T SIT WELL WITH THEIR SON, BRENT HART. I GOT PUT IN THE SHARPSHOOTER BY BRENT HART MORE TIMES THAN I COULD COUNT. FROM MY OWN PERSONAL EXPERIENCE, THE SHARPSHOOTER IS THE MOST PAINFUL HOLD I’VE EVER HAD PUT ON ME.>>STRONG WORDS.>>I MEAN, THE PAST IS THE PAST. WE CAN’T TALK ABOUT, YOU KNOW, NATALYA, WITHOUT TALKING ABOUT BECKY LYNCH BEING NOW, AND NATALYA AT ONE POINT IN TIME WAS THE GREATEST OF ALL TIME. AS FAR AS BEING A SUBMISSION SPECIALIST, NATALYA, SHE’S GOT THAT. BUT YOU HAVE TO GO WITH THE MAN. I MEAN, BECKY LYNCH HAS PUT HERSELF IN POSITION TO BE, I MEAN, THE SIGNS WILL BE OUT HERE TONIGHT, THE MAN.

I THINK HE WILL KEEP SUPLEX CITY GOING TONIGHT.>>THIS RIGHT HERE, THIS MATCHUP, SETH ROLLINS VERSUS BROCK LESNAR, THIS IS THE Q UACK-QUACK MOMENT OF THE NIGHT. [LAUGHTER]>>THAT’S GREAT.>>AND I SAY THAT BECAUSE BROCK LESNAR, I MEAN, BROCK LESNAR IS NOT THE GUY THAT PHONES IT IN OR ANYTHING. HE DOESN’T TEXT MESSAGE OR FACEBOOK OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT. HE GOES OUT AND DOES WORK IN THE MIDDLE OF THAT RING. THAT’S WHAT I LOVE ABOUT BROCK LESNAR.>>EVEN PAUL HEYMAN CALLING BROCK LESNAR’S ACTS CRIMINAL. IF HE GOES AS FAR AS TO SAY THAT, YOU KNOW THAT BROCK LESNAR MEANS BUSINESS.>>ALL RIGHT. THANK YOU VERY MUCH, BOOKER T. WE ARE JUST ABOUT SET. OVER 16,000 STRONG ARE HERE, AND THEY ARE READY TO GO. TONIGHT, SO MANY QUESTIONS TO BE ASKED — ANSWERED. WHO WILL HAVE THE ANSWERS? WHO WILL — CAN THE BEAST REGAIN THE UNIVERSAL TITLE? CAN THE MAN OUT-SUBMIT NATALYA? CAN TRISH STRATUS IN HER OWN HOMETOWN TURN BACK TIME AND BEAT CHARLOTTE FLAIR AT THE TOP OF HER GAME? THIS IS ONE OF THOSE SPECIAL NIGHTS WERE YOU HAVE TO STAND UP AND BE COUNTED. WELL, THE COUNTDOWN IS OVER. SUMMERSLAM IS NEXT.

    Was Edge scheduled to be there? Or was Elias' reaction to Edge's music actually genuine?? Because that was good lol. Not an eye roll as usual but actual WTFH reaction. And Elias' shaking his head "OMG he's here!" and doing a quick face cover wipe "I'm gonna get speared aren't I" .. reaction

    55:29 and 55:36 this is why this storyline not that reality vibes..
    if this is really a big storyline for Roman, why some one will give/put some camera in the front of car that went hit Roman..
    ..before there was camera too on the steel bars that felt onto him too..
    Try to look at Big Cass and Ezno feuds.. that feel more reality than just a set up using hidden cam like this

    With what Corery is saying about Natalya having the home field advantage I think Natalya has the Homefield disadvantage because it is Vince McMahon he's the boss and and I'm pretty sure it's common knowledge that Vince likes to make his wrestlers lose in their hometowns or home countries and just because there are new creative directors doesn't mean anything because if Vince McMahon wants something to happen it will happen and we all mostly know what he's like for holding grudges even once he's supposed to be buried the hatchet
