Sheamus believes Jeff will fail the test and if he does, the Backlash match is off because there's no chance he's stepping in the ring with a junkie. Sheamus gets booed some more now. Jeff says he is an alcoholic and if this is what he has to do to get to Sheamus, fine. He's been battling alcohol and addiction since his early 20s, and he's tired of fighting. He goes to meetings each week and talks about how he's let everyone down. He's sick and tired of being sick and tired. His demons are starving and sometimes all it takes to want to feed them is being in the presence of a bastard like Sheamus but not this time, he's going to be a beacon of light for everyone else who experiences something like this. Jeff goes on about what he's going to do to Sheamus. Sheamus says his doctor will be able to speed up the test which usually takes 24 hours, and he will pay for the test on his own. Sheamus says his doctor is even overseeing the test.

Sheamus asks Renee to leave the ring because Jeff is experiencing performance issues. Jeff steps inside of the curtain that Sheamus had brought out. The doctor steps in with him. Sheamus knocks Hardy while he apparently urinates in a cup. They step back out with a glass full of urine. Sheamus jokes that Hardy had fun at Happy Hour. Sheamus continues to taunt Hardy as the doctor tests the urine. Jeff ends up grabbing the urine and throwing it in Sheamus' face. Jeff exits the ring while Sheamus stumbles back, covered in urine. Sheamus is furious. We see Sheamus' doctor heading to the back. Sheamus flips the contract signing table over in the ring and fumes as security looks on. The crowd chants "you got pissed on!" as Jeff watches from the ramp. Jeff's music starts back up as we go to commercial.
