Randy tells AJ to shut up. Randy says he has been home for seven weeks watching you run your mouth and acting like you run this place. The only thing bigger than your ego is that jackass right there.
AJ says Omos is not a jackass. AJ suggests that Orton wrestle him tonight so see who runs Raw. Randy accepts.

In the Arena:
WWE Champion Bobby Lashley makes his way to the ring with MVP. Before the two can talk, we see what happened last week during the Lashley – Goldberg segment.
Porter says last week the All Mighty was here to talk to you about a main event at SummerSlam featuring Bobby versus Bill Goldberg at SummerSlam. That announcement has been mired in controversy. There have been some false narratives. If Goldberg was looking for a fight, it was in the ring, but he never raised his hands to the man. He left the ring in an orderly fashion. Goldberg returned to the ring and hit him with a spear, like a coward, for no reason. Then, because he had to cover himself and lied that Porter was threatening Goldberg’s son. Porter say he never would have done anything like that. What I said to Gage was, if you love your father, dissuade your dad from this fool’s errand becuase your dad’s career will be over. For that, Goldberg attacked me.
When you slander me, you slander the All Mighty. I don’t know if you know what it is like to be hit by a spear from Goldberg. It is like being hit by a Mack Truck. Porter says he has suffered some broken ribs. The only thing worse than a spear from Goldberg is a spear by Lashley. They are violent men by nature. If you invovle your son in your battles, you never know what will happen. I have been hurt and I cannot cough or sneeze. I cannot laugh. That is appropriate because this is not a laughing matter. If you want to get your son involved.
Porter tells Gage to tell his father not to come to SummerSlam because he will be humiliated and destroyed like you have never seen before because he will end Goldberg’s career. The upside is that you will have your dad and he can go to all of your football and baseball games. Then you can sit on the couch and watch Raw and reminisce about how you could have kept your dad from being in his condition.
Lashley tells Bill not to let his son watch SummerSlam because he will see the level of destruction he will put on Goldberg. You are not next, you are done.
