Updated: Jul 8, 2020

Here's what's on tap for tonight:

  • Rey Mysterio is cleared: Rey Mysterio & Aleister Black vs. Seth Rollins & Murphy

  • Six Man Tag Team Match: Big Show & The Viking Raiders vs. Randy Orton, Andrade, & Angel Garza w/ Zelina Vega

  • Dolph Ziggler decides the stipulation for his match against WWE champion Drew McIntyre at The Horror Show at Extreme Rules

  • Champion vs. Champion: WWE Raw Women's champion Asuka vs. WWE Smackdown Women's champion and one half of the WWE Women's Tag Team champions Bayley in a non-title match

We kick things off with the WWE champion, Drew McIntyre! McIntyre talks about his match with Dolph Ziggler at The Horror Show at Extreme Rules. McIntyre talks about all the possibilities of match types they could have. McIntyre wants Ziggler to come out and let us know what the stipulation is. Out comes Ziggler!! Ziggler makes a LeBron James joke and says his decision is not going to South beach. Ziggler says McIntyre is dumb for letting Ziggler make the stipulation and Ziggler says it's a secret. They compare accolades. Ziggler talks about all the people McIntyre has stabbed in the back. Ziggler says he's brought someone here who McIntyre stabbed in the back. IT'S HEATH SLATER!!! Slater and Ziggler make their way to the ring. Slater on the mic now and he talks about how far back they go. Slater says he wasn't the chosen one back then but he is now. Slater talks about McIntyre beating Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania and Slater says he cried when McIntyre won. Slater talks how he called McIntyre everyday when he got released way back but Slater wants to know where McIntyre was when he got released? No where! Slater talks about his family and and how he was there for McIntyre but McIntyre was never there for him. Slater wants McIntyre to give him what he promised him. McIntyre doesn't want to fight Slater and Slater slaps him!!! McIntyre says "You're on!" This is probably the best promo of Heath Slater's career and unfortunate it happens when he is no longer employed. This is worth checking out!

Now we have a match between WWE champion Drew McIntyre and Heath Slater. They are in street clothes. IT LAST A MERE SECONDS AND MCINTYRE TAKES HIS HEAD OFF WITH A CLAYMORE!!! McIntyre gets the win and stares down Ziggler. Ziggler talks crap to Slater after the match and they brawl!! McIntyre comes back to make the save!! Ziggler runs away!! McIntyre helps Slater up and they hug!!

Backstage, WWE Women's Tag Team champions Sasha Banks and Bayley are here for an interview. They decide not to do the interview when they can go talk to the world. WWE Raw Women's champion Asuka shows up and shes asked how she plans on handling Banks and Bayley alone? She says who says she's all alone?

Back from commercial, Sasha Banks and Bayley are in the ring. We see highlights of last week. Banks and Bayley talk about all their recent accomplishments and how they're on all three brands. They talk about Extreme Rules. Banks says she'll win at Extreme Rules and become "Two Belts Banks". ASUKA is here to interrupt!! Asuka basically laughs at both of them and tells Bayley she's not ready for her. Bayley says Asuka isn't ready for Banks. Asuka says Banks doesn't look busy. Bayley claims Sasha is ready for anyone. Asuka brings out KAIRI SANE!!

Kairi Sane defeated Sasha Banks by DQ when Bayley got in the ring and attacked Sane. Asuka immediately gets in and they all brawl. Kairi Sane takes out both Banks and Bayley on the outside with the Insane Elbow!!

Bayley vs. Asuka is still to come later.

Seth Rollins will be on the KO Show later tonight. We see the highlights of Rollins and Carrillo from last week.

A camera takes us backstage where Aleister Black is laid out while wearing a Rey Mysterio mask. Seth Rollins is standing over him.

The Viking Raiders are backstage when they are approached by Big Show. He's not in the mood. They talk about Edge and Christian and the Raiders want to do a 5 second pose. Big Show isn't having it and he chops both men!! They get serious now.

KO Show time! Kevin Owens removes the chairs because of who his guest is. Owens calls Rollins trash before welcoming him. Rollins and Murphy comes out. Owens says Rollins hasn't been doing well since he lost to Owens at WrestleMania. Rollins is quick to say Owens hasn't done anything relevant since WrestleMania and asks Owens how his broken ankle is. Rollins doesn't care about Owens or his show and wants to use the platform to challenge Rey Mysterio to a match at Extreme Rules. Rey is quick to come out with Dominick and accept. Rollins says Rey doesn't have a partner tonight now since Aleister Black can't compete. Owens offers to be Rey's partner. They decide whoever wins the tag match can pick the stipulation for their match at Extreme Rules! Murphy attacks Owens but Rey makes the save!!

Rey Mysterio and Kevin Owens defeated Seth Rollins and Murphy. Aleister Black came out to distract Rollins and Dominick attacked Murphy's eye when the referee was distracted. Mysterio pinned Murphy after a 619 and frog splash. After the match, Rey told Rollins that the stipulation for their match would be an "Eye for an Eye" match. Rey tells Rollins he will pull Rollins' eye out with his bare hands.

Charly Caruso interviews MVP and Bobby Lashley. I guess Apollo Crews is out of action and Lashley claims he broke him. Lashley claims Apollo's title reign will soon end. MVP chimes in and says they will discuss the future of the United States championship. They'll do it next and it will be ballin!!!

Commentary tells us that since MVP beat Apollo last week, he'll face him at Extreme Rules for the WWE United States championship.

MVP and Bobby Lashley comes to the ring. MVP talks about Apollo being a star when he debuted. But his star dimmed quickly. MVP says no one is invincible when it comes to Lashley's full nelson. MVP helped Lashley and he could of helped Apollo too. MVP says Apollo disrespected both MVP and Lashley. MVP says when he beats Apollo, Apollo will no longer be champion but he'll always have the memory. MVP says he already beat Apollo and his third reign will be better than the others. We get a drum roll and MVP THEN DEBUTS A NEW UNITED STATES CHAMPIONSHIP.

MVP calls it magnificent and he can't wait to be Apollo and make it official. Lashley wants to crown MVP right now. RICOCHET AND CEDRIC ALEXANDER interrupt. Ricochet tells MVP he hasn't earned anything and they will make sure the Hurt Business goes Chapter 11. Ricochet and Alexander run to the ring to attack and we have a tag match...

Bobby Lashley and MVP defeated Ricochet and Cedric Alexander. Lashley pinned Alexander after a spear. The match was what is was. Ricochet and Alexander do a great job of selling but I don't think anyone expected them to win.

Highlights of Big Show's match with Andrade and Angel Garza last week.

Andrade, Angel Garza, and Zelina Vega try to talk backstage when Ric Flair interrupts. Flair tells them to be on their game or they all need to answer to Randy Orton who walks into the picture. He says Big Show is his and to stay out of his way. If they screw it up, he'll introduce them to the Legend Killer. The six man tag is next.

Charly Caruso interviews the Kabuki Warriors. Asuka says after she beats Bayley tonight, they are challenging Sasha Banks and Bayley for the women's tag titles next week.

Randy Orton, Andrade, and Angel Garza defeated Big Show and the Viking Raiders. Orton pinned Erik after a RKO. Big Show stared down Orton and company after the match.

Backstage, the IIconics are talking about Liv Morgan. Billie Kay is facing Ruby Riott tonight. Royce says Liv isn't return her calls and talks about losers when Ruby Riott walks into the picture. Ruby never had a problem with the IIconics before but now she does. Riott doesn't know where Liv is but she's focused on them. Tonight won't be IIconic, it'll be tragic.

MVP talks to Cedric Alexander and doesn't understand why he's holding himself back. Someone with Cedric's talent, shouldn't be Ricochet's side kick. Cedric isn't having it and says MVP is just trying to divide and conquer. Cedric wants no part of it. MVP brings up Ricochet having a WWE Network special. MVP says him and Lashley are in the hurting business while Cedric is in the catering business because that's where he'll be the rest of his career.

Ric Flair talks to Randy Orton backstage about Big Show when 24/7 champion R-Truth runs into them. Truth thinks Flair is Tozawa trying to trick him. Truth runs! Tozawa and the ninjas show up looking for Truth. Orton asks who they're looking for and then points them in the opposite direction of Truth.

Billie Kay accompanied by Peyton Royce defeated Ruby Riott with a sit out spine buster. Not much of a match. The match between Ruby and Peyton last week was better.

Backstage, Charly interviews Sasha Banks and Bayley. Charly asks if the stakes are higher since Asuka challenged them to a WWE Women's Tag Team championship match next week. Banks accepts o behalf of the champs and says Asuka and Kairi will never be champs again. Bayley seems surprised. Sasha says they're the best. Bayley says she'll prove why she's the best champion. That match is next.

Nikki Cross is here to do commentary and security is trying to tell her to leave. She convinces them to let her stay. Midway through the match, Bayley slapped Nikki Cross' head set off. This caused Cross to try to attack so security took Cross to the back.

Asuka defeated Bayley in the champion vs. champion match when she transitioned from the Asuka Lock to a roll up. Banks and Bayley tried to cheat multiple times but in the end, Bayley was distracted by Nikki Cross who showed back up as a fan and was beating on the plexiglass. End Show.
