*** Smackdown Live ***

- Backstage, Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan are looking forward to Summer Slam. Randy Orton arrives and signs his contract to face Brock Lesnar. Heath Slater arrives with a fruit basket and says he stood toe to toe with Lesnar on RAW. Shane demands respect from Slater. Orton says he has an idea on how to handle this.

- Miz TV with Special Guests Dean Ambrose and Dolph Ziggler: Miz is interrupted by Ambrose and Ziggler and has to remind them that this is his show. Miz calls Ziggler the WWE version of the Ghostbusters remake.....a flop. Miz says Ziggler needs to prove the critics wrong, but what happens if he loses? Ambrose says that he's noticed Ziggler has that fire in his eyes again, but Ambrose isn't buying it. Ziggler asks if Ambrose wants him to admit that everything Ambrose has said the past three weeks makes Ziggler want to kick Ambrose's head off.  Ambrose says that even if Ziggler wins his life won't be transformed, the critics still won't be silenced, being WWE World Champion raises the pressure and Ambrose knows Ziggler buckles under pressure.
Ziggler says that Ambrose thinks he has it all figured out, Ambrose doesn't know a damn thing about Ziggler, Ambrose will push, crawl and bleed, but still not be able to put Ziggler away. Ziggler says Ambrose will reach down for one more move when....BAM....Ziggler connects with a super kick on Ambrose and lays Ambrose out. Ziggler looks down at a laid out Ambrose and says Sunday Ziggler will prove he's that damn good.
