By Richard Trionfo on 2016-08-08 23:09:00

We are back and Daniel Bryan is back and he arrives at the arena.

The ring has a red carpet and a wedding cake.  

Rusev makes his way to the ring and he is joined by his wife, Lana and she is in a different wedding dress.  They make their way to the ring.

Lana says she is Rusev's princess and when you marry a princess you give the fairy tale wedding of their dreams.  He gave her everything she wanted.  You could not attend because it is VIP only.  Lana says today is your lucky day because they are going to re-enact their special day.

Rusev says that she is all his.  Lana kisses Rusev's bicep.

Lana says you are going to get the best gift you are going to get in your entire life.  You are going to re-experience their wedding day.  It is a way to experience what it is like to have true love.

We see photos of the ceremony.

Rusev says this is all they have for you even though you want more.

Lana says they rented a private beach on the Pacific Ocean and while you cannot rent a one bedroom apartment, her husband is the greatest man of all time.

Rusev says this is why he trains so hard and fights so hard so he can provide what he wants for his wife.

Lana says that only Rusev could afford the custom designed dress.  

Rusev says these custom made cakes cost more than you make in a month.

Lana says that all of the networks covered the greatest moment in her life when they became husband and wife.  They are going to relive the reading of their vows.  Lana tells everyone to capture this inspirational moment when they redeclare their marriage vows.

Rusev says that everyone is booing because they are jealous American pigs.

Roman Reigns' music plays and he interrupts the cermony.

Roman looks at the cakes and he tells Rusev to take it easy and relax.

Roman says he watched the video and he did not see a best man.  Roman figured that he needed to come out and take on the duty of being best man.  He will toast them and do the job.

Rusev says he does not need Roman's toast and he tells him to leave.

Roman says if Rusev will not accept his toast, accept his challenge at SummerSlam.

Rusev says no to the challenge.

Roman says if Rusev does not accept the challenge, he will listen to his toast. 

Roman pours a 'drinky drink' over Rusev's objections.

Roman thanks Rusev and Lana.  He thanks them for allowing him to see a marriage between a Bulgarian Sasquatch and a Mail Order Bride.  Roman says he wants to have fun.  He says this is kind of a drag.  Roman says he was expecting so much more out of Rusev, just like Lana on her wedding night.  

Rusev punches Roman but Roman punches back.  Rusev runs Roman into the turnbuckles and connects with shoulders and punches.  Rusev tells Lana to move and then Roman punches Rusev and Rusev pushes Lana into the cake.

Roman leaves the ring and Lana throws a tantrum.

We go to commercial.

We are back and Lana is freaking out and Rusev is yelling at Mick Foley.  He says that Roman has to pay for this.  Rusev says he is the top champion and the greatest WWE Champion.

Mick tells Rusev he can take out his frustrations on Roman Reigns at SummerSlam and defend the US Title.

Winner:  Sasha Banks

We have a Nia Jax video package.

We go to commercial.

We are back with a Finn Balor video package.  He says that Seth has some misconceptions about him.  What you call disrespect is honesty.  What you call arrogance, he calls confidence.  What you call ignorance, he calls fire.  Do you know about the legends and myths?  Do you know about Finn MacCool?  He threw a piece of Ireland into the ocean and made the Isle of Mann.  Do you know about the monsters?  What about the King of the Demons?  When his evil eye opens, the world ends.  The grass burns, the sea boils and then the land catches on fire.  When a warrior enters a great battle, he can tap into the power of these creatures and become greater than himself.  

He says he know that Seth has his demons, but you have never seen a demon like this.  You will see the Demon at SummerSlam.

We go to Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson.  They talk about an epidemic affecting tag teams.  They talk about ringpostitis.  If you are trying to get pregnant, avoid people with ringpostitis.  Don't take their word for it, take Big E's.  Luke says the results were nuts.  Karl says he wanted to ball his eyes out.

Luke says they collect another sample from Kofi Kingston.

We go to commercial.

After the match, Luke and Karl pull Kofi toward the ring post but Woods gets a chair and Karl and Luke head up the ramp.

Mick Foley makes his way to the ring and we go to commercial.

We are back and Mick Foley is in the ring.  Mick says that wedding was fresh.  Mick says that when he competed in WWE, he believed in an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth and an ear for an ear.  Mick brings out his special guest for tonight, Smackdown General Manager Daniel Bryan.

Daniel says as much as it pains him, he says Mick is doing a great job running Raw. 

Mick says that Daniel is doing a great job on Smackdown and the Cruiserweight Classic.

Daniel says he is impressed that Mick invited him. 

Mick cuts off Daniel before plugging Smackdown.  Mick says he brought Daniel here to apologize for Brock invading Smackdown and laying out Randy Orton.  He says he is deeply sorry.

Daniel says that Mick does not have to apologize because Smackdown fired the first shot by having Randy Orton come out and RKO the Beast.  He says it should not have happened.

Mick says that if Daniel had any respect, Daniel would not have said what he said about the Universal Title.  We see the footage.

Daniel says that was out of context.  He says they should have done an Interspecies or MIlky Way Title.

Rusev comes out and he is dressed for a fight.  He says Raw does not need another champion, they have a champion named Rusev.  While your superstars on Smackdown, he will crush him for the greatest GM in history, Mick Foley.

Daniel wants to know if Rusev is trying to get out of his match against Roman by sucking up.

Cesaro comes out and he says that it seems like Rusev is having a really bad night and he has a way to make it worse.  Cesaro reminds Foley that if he shows what he can do, he can earn a title match.  He says he feels like he has proven himself.

Mick says that it looked like Sheamus had him beaten.

Cesaro wants to know if Foley is not a man of his word.

Bryan says that Cesaro is underutilized.

Foley says that Roman gets his show at SummerSlam, but Cesaro gets his title match . . . . TONIGHT.
