In the Arena:
We take a look at what Sheamus did to Humberto Carrillo last week.
Sheamus gets a good chuckle out of that. Sheamus says he could watch that over and over again. He says he would be a fighting champion. Last week, Humberto Carrillo added his name to the list of people who tried to take his United States Championship. People would say that you didn’t let the bell ring. He says Humberto doesn’t belong in the ring with the United States Champion. I am a fierce fighter but I am a generous fella. After the successful debut of his Open Challenge, he will do it again. If you fancy getting stretchered out at the Thunderdome and the guest at your own funeral, come on out and take a swing at ole Sheamy. This will not be on the line.

In the Arena:
WWE Champion Bobby Lashley makes his way to the ring with MVP.
Bobby says he did what he said he was going to do at Wrestlemania. He walked in and walked out as the WWE Champion. When I grabbed Drew McIntyre and I made him pass out and I held the title over my head and I demanded respect. I got that respect and it felt great because Drew was under my feet like a dollar crumpled up and thrown on the sidewalk.
Drew is like a piece of bubble gum under my shoe that I cannot get rid of. I have to face Drew AGAIN at Backlash and I will beat him AGAIN. There is a possibility that this could be a triple threat match.
Porter says he is offended by that. How could the most dominant champion in the WWE be treated that way. Bobby is the Chief Hurt Officer and any business involving that championship cannot be done without consulting the chief.
Bobby says anything done without our consultation is disrespectful.
Porter says that Bobby has been champion for 56 days but his title could be in jeopardy in a Triple Threat Match he wasn’t consulted about. Bobby lost the US title in a triple threat match without being pinned. It is possible that Bobby could lose his title and not have a hand in the outcome. That is not fair.
Bobby says fair or not, he can beat Drew or Braun in a head to head competition. If their match is changed to a Triple Threat Match, I will have to come out to watch that match. After waiting for 16 years, I will leave Backlash as the WWE Champion.
— We take a look at Riddle beating Randy Orton last week.

Riddle earned a little respect. He mentions what Riddle said last week about RK-Bro and he asks if they want to try it out. They have a tag match if they want. Riddle is up for that but he wants to get matching snake skin Speedos. Randy tells Riddle to zip the lip and he says to wait to see what happens before they talk.
We go to commercial.
— We are back with a look at Mandy Rose and Dana Brooke getting into the heads of Nia Jax.

Braun Strowman is in the back and he is stretching but MVP walks by. Braun wants MVP to talk. Porter asks if that is how you talk to the representative of the WWE Champion.
