Also tonight, we have also have a massive main event: Dean Ambrose vs. Chris Jericho! Kane's music blasts on the PA system, as Kane makes his way to the ring! Antonio Cesaro's music hits, as he has a mic on him. He says that he defines the word: Legend. He says that USA have got legends, who go by the name of The Rock, Steve Austin, Mick Foley- but they are nothing, compared to the Swiss Sensation: Antonio Cesaro! He slides into the ring, as he and Kane clash.
Match 1. Kane vs Antonio Cesaro
Finish: Kane goes for a Clothesline but Cesaro ducks- he jumps off the top rope, and he goes for a European Uppercut, but Kane manages to reverse it into a Chokeslam! Cesaro breaks out of it, and he kicks Kane in the gut, and sets him up for the Neutralizer- but Jack Swagger comes out and he stands on the ramp as Cesaro looks on, and he lets go of Kane! But he turns around, Chokeslam! Kane goes for the cover, and gets the win!
Swagger heads to the back, as Antonio follows. Kane celebrates- but CM Punk appears on the TitanTron. Punk shouts Kane, as Kane looks towards the TitanTron. Punk says that he hopes Kane is okay? He says that he knows he kind of owned Kane last week, and made him feel uncomfortable- but there's no reason to take it out on the US Champion, is it? He says that he wanted to make sure Kane isn't mental enough for Extreme Rules. Because he wanted to show him what Punk is capable of. The camera zooms out, and we see Punk with a lighter- and a bin. Punk takes paper out of his pocket, and he burns it before chucking it in the bin. He says that he hopes this gets to Kane- because he wants Kane to make sure that Punk is going to annihilate him come Extreme Rules. Punk grins, and Kane goes mental, as he attacks the referee- as we cut to commercial.
We are back, as 3MB's music hits! Heath Slater and Jinder Mahal come out with mics. Slater asks the crowd how they are? They reply with boos. Mahal tells them to shut up, as he speaks.

He says that you would be a fool, not to join 3MB! However, The Uso Brothers' music hit as they come out. Jimmy says that nobody in the crowd, would be stupid enough to join 3MB, so they may as well cut the crap!

We are back from commercial, and Rey Mysterio's music hits! Mysterio comes out with a mic as the crowd cheer him on. Mysterio says that last week, he ran away scared after Hunico and Camacho attempted to attack him. He says that he didn't mean to run- but it's a good thing he did. Because if he stayed in that ring, he would've got his ass kicked- and he wouldn't be able to compete at Extreme Rules. Mysterio says that he pulled a smart move, but a stupid one at the same time. He says that he isn't sure if he is capable enough, of taking on Camacho and Hunico on his own. Camacho and Hunico's music hit, as they come out with chairs. Mysterio tells them to bring it on, but instead- he slides out of the ring and he runs to the back as Hunico and Camacho have hit the ring! Mysterio is breathing heavily, as you can visibly see members of the roster asking him if he's okay. Vince McMahon appears, and tells Mysterio that he doesn't blame him for running- but he has no choice, but to order Rey to find a partner. He says that he's got until next week to find a good partner for Extreme Rules. Vince leaves, as Camacho and Hunico come from behind- they go to attack Mysterio, but he runs into a locker room and shuts the door as they call off the attack.

He asks Cena if he's going to stick to attacks every time? He says that Cena is trying to prove himself to the WWE, but he's proving to the crowd that he's nothing but a cowardly piece of crap! Christian says that if Cena wants a piece of him- then he can have a piece of him...at Extreme Rules! The crowd pop as Cena takes a mic. He asks Christian if he's been watching 8 Mile again? He says that Extreme Rules is a PPV where anything should go, he says that each match should be extreme in different ways. Cena says that he's mastered the art of matches like TLC, Last Man Standing- and he'll master the art of the match he wants at Extreme Rules! He says that he'll accept Christian's challenge, on one condition. He says that he wants the chance to end Christian's career, because he disrespected him. The match he wants to face Christian is- a No Holds Barred match! Christian says that he accepts! He says that he'll give Cena the chance to end his career, but it's such a shame that it isn't going to happen. Christian drops his mic and poses for the crowd, with Cena looking on as we cut to commercial.
We are back from our final commercial of the night, as The Shield's music hit! The Shield come out as Dean Ambrose looks pumped for his match.

Ambrose celebrates outside the ring, as he hops over the barricade to celebrate with The Shield! Jericho grins at Lesnar, as he grabs a mic. He says that was fair play to Lesnar, he outsmarted Jericho once again. He says that outsmarting him all the time, is just going to give The Shield another reason, and an advantage to keep attacking himself and Lesnar. He says that with Lesnar's amazing strength, and Jericho's speed- they will be able to put The Shield down. Jericho asks Lesnar if he's on? Lesnar whispers to Heyman.
