Paul tells everyone they know it is true.  Finn Balor fears Roman Reigns.  If Finn does not fear Roman Reigns, why does he have to tap into his inner demons to challenge Roman for the Universal Championship.  Brock Lesnar fears Roman Reigns.  Paul says he has known Brock for 20 years and he never saw fear in Brock’s eyes before last week.

In the Arena:

We are finally back to Seth Rollins. Seth says it was unfortunate and someone should have helped Big E.  On to more important things.  Last week, I had one of the greatest matches of his career when he defeated Edge in Madison Square Garden.  We have had a week to process the end of that match.  Seth says what happened to Edge was unfortunate and unsettling.  It was scary what happened to Edge at the end of the match.  When his boot came down across the back of his neck, I heard a pop.  I felt a crunch.  i don’t know how to describe it other than . . . do you know . . . when you step on a cockroach but don’t know what you step on but you hear the crunch and you know that there is a lifeless being underneath.

We take a look at the footage.

Seth says he knows that is difficult to watch and he understands why the people are booing.  Seth says he has a question for everyone and it is the same question he has been asking himself.  What did you think was going to happen?  Seth wants to know what you thought was going to happen.  That was one of the greatest wins of his career and he didn’t have a moment to enjoy it.  Everyone is looking at him and calling him a monster.  This company said that what he did was unconscionable and he was told he went too far.

Seth says he used a legal move in a legal match and he won the same way he won a majority of matches in his career.  Seth says Edge went too far.  He is a family man and he knew the risks.  He knew the consequences and he got in the ring with Seth.  Do you know who is to blame?  Look to the left, to the ring, and in the mirror.  You are to blame for what happened to Edge.  You goaded Edge into goading me.  Do you remember when Edge called Seth ‘Edge Lite’?  What did you do?  You cheered.  What about when he dumped black gunk on him?  What did you do?

If you didn’t like that, you are not going to like this.  I am not done with Edge.  This week on NXT, Edge’s wife said that Edge was at home recuperating.  Edge, if you are at home, you are watching.  You are thinking the same thing that I am thinking.  Are you physically capable of getting back in this ring?  Are you emotionally capable of getting back in this ring?  I saw the look in your eye when they had you on that stretcher and put you in that ambulance.  That look was fear.  For a moment, I felt sorry for you and it has been eating me alive in the back of my brain for the last week.  I cannot live feeling sorry for you.  I have to move on.  I can’t do that until I finish you.  

It ends two ways.  I find you in your cabin and I finish you in front of your family.  Or you crawl your way back to the ring so we can finish this dance in the ring.  I have to finish you, one way or another.


Kayla Braxton is in the back and she is with Becky Lynch.  Kayla asks if Bianca’s celebration tonight will give Bianca momentum going into Extreme Rules.  Becky says momentum will keep going until it meets an opposite force.  She had momentum going into SummerSlam.  Tonight is a big night for Bianca and Becky says she might have to check it out.

Finn says he was not born into a wrestling family.  He does not have a Bloodline.  He came from a family of railroad workers.  He is not supposed to be here.  He fought and scratched.  The Demon is a manifestation of everyone who told him no.  It unlocks a rage inside him that cannot be controlled.  He does not summon the Demon, the Demon summons him.  Roman and his cousin’s disrespect only adds fuel to the fire.  Roman will see the fire that burns inside him burn deeper than the fires around him.  You are looking at the face of Finn Balor.  At Extreme Rules, you will see the face of the Demon, the Universal Champion at Extreme Rules.
