By Richard Trionfo on 2017-07-17 23:05:00

We are back and Enzo Amore makes his way to the ring.

For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.  Enzo says no one can get a reaction on the mic like him.  He knows the repurcussions of his actions.  If he says it, he owns it.  Sometimes, his losses outweigh his assets.  The same holds true in this business as in life.  You gotta win some, you gotta lose some.  You always gotta fight for what you believe in.  Enzo says that he believes there was a point in time when Colin believed in what they did.  Enzo says maybe he believed in it more than Colin.  He threw caution to the wind and he let Colin pick him up and throw him at their opponents because he wanted to win.

When you threw him, it was you who was left standing at seven foot tall.  Being seven foot tall didn't win them any championships.  He says this ain't the NBA, this is the WWE and this is a ring, not a basketball court.  Last week, you proclaimed that when you threw him out of the ring like a piece of trash, you threw him out of your life.  You did not throw him out of his life.  Enzo says if you knock him down nine times, he is getting up ten times.  

Enzo wants to see what happened last week.

Enzo says Colin bounced a check.  He says Colin has a foot and 100 pounds on him and he brought the fight to Colin.  Last week, you were in the ring with someone your size.  When the going got tough, you folded up like a lawn chair.  Enzo says he wouldn't have rolled out of the ring.

He starts to spell for Colin but Colin's music plays and he comes to the ring.

Colin says if it wasn't for Corey none of this would have happened.  Colin says Enzo is always running his mouth.  You didn't learn your lesson at Great Balls of Fire so he is going to knock some sense into Enzo and finally you will learn to shut your mouth.

Enzo says if you want a fight . . . Enzo rolls to the floor and he says he is smarter than the average bear.  He loves a fight so he is going to go into the crowd and watch Colin.

Match Number Three:  Big Show versus Colin Cassady

Colin attacks Show as he enters the ring but Show grabs Colin and throws him around the ringside area.  Show with a punch to Colin but they get on the apron and Colin sends Show into the ring post a few times.  Colin with punches and kicks to Show. 

Enzo makes his way into the ring and Colin turns around and gives Enzo a big boot to the head.

We go to the back where Roman Reigns is drinking water.  He is asked about having to face Samoa Joe after losing twice to him.  Roman says when the stakes are the highest that is when he is at his best.  He beat the Undertaker at Wrestlemania.  It is about tonight and he is the guy who is going to beat Samoa Joe.  When he is done with Joe, he will beat Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam.  

We go to commercial.

We see Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins in the locker room and they are arguing.  Dean tells Seth he doesn't need his help and that he would take on all three men at the same time.  Seth says he isn't there to help. 

Kurt Angle stops them before they leave and Kurt says he has a lot going on tonight but next week, they can face any two members of Miz' group.  Dean wants to know why they cannot face all three men.  Angle makes the match.

Elias Samson is in the ring and he says he has a special song for Nashville since he has a history with the city.

Match Number Three:  Elias Samson versus Finn Balor

They lock up and Balor with a snap mare and kick.  Balor with an arm bar.  Samson slams Balor into the turnbuckles.  Samson with punches and kicks to Balor and he pulls Balor's head over the apron and drops Balor on the apron a few times.  Balor is choked in the ropes.  Samson with a clothesline followed by a knee to the back and a full nelson.  Samson with a forearm but Balor with a Pele kick.  Balor gets a boot up when Samson charges into the corner.  Balor with kicks and a chop followed by a running drop kick.

Balor with punches and kicks in the corner.  Samson with an Irish whip and Balor tries to float over.  Samson gets Balor on his shoulders and he hits a sit out power bomb for a near fall.  Samson with an Irish whip and back breaker for a near fall. Samson goes to the turnbuckles but Balor with an enzuigiri to knock Samson to the floor.  Balor goes for a baseball slide and he follows with a running kick on the apron.

Balor with a running drop kick that sends Samson into the ringside barrier.  Samson grabs his guitar and he hits Balor with it.

Winner:  Finn Balor (by disqualification)

After the match, Balor is checked by the medical staff.

Bray Wyatt appears on the TitanTron and he laughs at Finn Balor.  Bray says you didn't expect that did you?  Bray says he has been watching you and you didn't expect that.  You have feelings, just like everyone else in that sea of humanity.  Bray says he lives for that look.  That look of pain and suffering.  It ignites the fire in his soul.  He feels the need to put you not just in pain, but in agony.  The hair on the back of his neck stands up and his heart beats faster.  He needs to punish Finn.  You say you are from Irish mythology.  Bray says he is real and he is the eye of the storm.  The best part is that he is going to enjoy every second of it.

We have a Samoa Joe video package.

We go to commercial.

We are back and Kurt Angle is on the phone and he says he is a little calmed down.

Bayley and Sasha Banks enter the office and Bayley says they have a little disagreement.  Sasha says Bayley thinks she deserves a title shot but people saw Great Balls of Fire and she would have had the title.  Bayley says Sasha won by count out but she did not pin Alexa like she did last week or earlier tonight.

Kurt says they both deserve to wrestle for the title and he is not going to decide, you will.  Next week, you will wrestle and the winner will face Alexa Bliss at SummerSlam.

We take a look back at the Hardys versus Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson as well as the attack by the Revival.

The Revival are in the interview area and they are asked why did they attack The Hardys.  Dash says they did it because they are the Hardy Boyz.  Scott says there hasn't been a team that has flipped around here like the Hardys.  Dash says the Hardys acted like they did not exist.  They will show the Hardys who they are.  Scott says the Hardys will know about them after tonight.

Match Number Four:  Akira Tozawa (with Titus O'Neil) versus Ariya Daivari
