- In Ring Promo with The Miz: Miz makes fun of Damien Sandow and mocks Summer Rae. Bad News Barrett interrupts Miz. Barrett says they are in England, not Hollywood and the fans want to see Barrett. Barrett claimes he'll crush Miz, like he will crush Daniel Bryan and the "Yes Movement" at Extreme Rules.

- The Miz vs. Bad News Barrett: Miz wastes time and showboats. Miz turns around and gets crushed with the "Bullhammer". Barrett covers and scores the pinfall.

- Backstage, Miz interrupts Damien Sandow and Summer Rae. Miz says Sandow's win on RAW was a fluke and wants another match.

- In Ring Promo with Dolph Ziggler: Ziggler mocks Sheamus for running away because he's a bully. Sheamus tells Ziggler he can kiss his arse. Ziggler says Sheamus can kiss his. Sheamus says that Ziggler literally will kiss his arse because at Extreme Rules it'll be Sheamus vs. Dolph Ziggler in a "Kiss My Arse Match". Ziggler accepts.

- Los Matadores (w/El Torito) vs. The New Day: Kofi hits "Trouble in Paradise" on Fernando. Diego switches places with Fernando, behind the referee's back. The switch backfires as Big E and Kofi hit their double team finisher to score the pinfall.

- In Ring Promo with Big Show: Show brags about being dominate and brags about the damage he did to Roman Reigns on RAW. Show has been granted a "Last Man Standing Match" against Reigns at Extreme Rules. Show says he'll be the last one standing and we can believe that.

- Nattie Neidhart vs. Alicia Fox vs. Cameron: Nattie and Cameron trade rollups before Nattie counters into a "Sharpshooter". Fox tries to break the submission, so Nattie locks Fox in the "Sharpshooter". Cameron breaks the submission and Nattie tosses Cameron to the floor. Fox scissor kicks Nattie, but Cameron tosses Fox to the floor and steals the pinfall on Nattie for the win.

- Fandango vs. Adam Rose: Rosa comes down to the ring and yells at Fandango for firing her. Rose attacks Fandango from behind and winks at Rosa. Rosa tries to talk to Rose, which distracts him. Fandango sneaks in and scores the rollup pinfall on Rose.

- "Champions vs. Champions Match": Daniel Bryan and John Cena vs. Tyson Kidd and Cesaro: Bryan lands stiff kicks on Cesaro and sends Cesaro to the floor. Bryan traps Kidd in the corner and unloads stiff kicks on Kidd. Bryan goes for a running kick, but Nattie Neidhart jumps up on the apron. Kidd inadvertently knocks Nattie off the apron and then gets locked in the "Yes Lock" submission by Bryan. Cena lands the "AA" on Cesaro as Kidd taps out to the "Yes Lock". Cena and Bryan celebrate as Smackdown closed out.
