- Tonight's WWE SmackDown opens with a quick promo before going to the opening video package. We're live from Cleveland with Mauro Ranallo, David Otunga and JBL.
- We go right to the ring and out comes Randy Orton to a pop.
Randy says he knows why Bray Wyatt likes to talk about fear. By playing mind games, you think you will take away his focus. You attack people from behind like you did at Backlash. You do it because you are afraid. People are afraid of many things... heights, spiders, snakes. He says Bray Wyatt, you are afraid of him. Enough mind games and sneak attacks. He wants Bray to get his ass to teh ring, if he is man enough and face your fears.
The lights go out and Bray appears on the TitanTron. Bray asks if Randy ever heard of Hansel and Gretel. He says he heard Randy telling his kids about it. Two kids in a deep, dark place and they leave breadcrumbs to leave a trail home. Bray says he left his own trail and it takes Randy through the prison that is his mind. Bray says this is his world and he is a God. Bray says he makes the rules. Bray tells Randy to hurry because the sands of time wait for no mortal man.
He starts singing "The Whole World" and laughs to end the promo. Orton takes off to the back and it looks like he's going hunting for Wyatt.

Dolph tells Mike to wait. He says this is all he has. A few minutes a night 300 nights a year is all he has. This is what he loves. Things you love do not love you back. You can give and give and give but you get nothing in return. People come up to you and ask you why are you still here. It is because he can't stop. It is a sickness. He thought his career would end up bigger. He cannot stop himself. Dolph says you put that title up one more time. Dolph says he will put up his entire career.
Miz wants to make sure that he heard Dolph correctly. He says that if you lose, you don't go to Raw or NXT or take a sabbatical. You will be done with WWE. Dolph says your title... my career. He either walks out champion or he is done. Either way, he is put out of his misery.
