CHARLY: AND BROHM STROWMAN AND BOBBY LASHLEY MEETING IN A LAST MAN STANDING MATCH. AND AT THE VERY TOP OF TONIGHT’S EXTREME RULES EVENT, ROMAN REIGNS, HE’S HAD HIS ISSUES WITH SHANE MCMAHON AND DREW MCINTYRE AND COMING TO HIS AID — HIS AID, THE UNLIKELIEST OF TAG TEAM PARTNERS, THE UNDERTAKER.

JONATHAN: THE UNDERTAKER AND ROMAN REIGNS WON’T HAVE TO WAIT TOO LONG TO TAKE ON THEIR ISSUES S IS WITH ROMAN REIGNS AND — SHANE MCMAHON AND DREW MC– MCINTYRE. RECENTLY HE HAS THE UNLIKELIEST OF TAG TEAM PARTNERS SHOW UP WHEN HE FIRST NEEDED IT.>>YOU’RE TAKING ON DREW MCINTYRE AND ME AND A TWO ON ONE HANDICAP MATCH. >>A SERIOUS SITUATION BUT ROMAN IS GOING TO FIGHT HIS HEART OUT, NO QUESTION ABOUT THAT. YOU’RE GOING TO FIND OUT EXACTLY WHOSE YARD IT IS AND IT’S MINE! >>THE NUMBERS GRATEFUL IS GOING TO CATCH UP TO ROMAN REIGNS.>>IN COULD BE THE END OF ROMAN REIGNS. IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR ANY ONE MAN TO COMPETE AGAINST TWO MEN OF THIS CALIBER AT THE SAME TIME. [BELL TOLLING] [CHEERS]>>UNDERTAKER IS HERE! THE DEAD MAN HAS RISEN! SHANE AND MACINTYRE, THEY LOOK LIKE THEY’VE SEEN A GHOST.>>JUST ENCOUNTERED THE REBIRTH.>>THE UNDERTAKER, HE HAS STRUCK FEAR INTO THE HEARTS OF EVERY MAN HE’S EVER FACED. BUT I AM NO ORDINARY MAN. I DON’T GIVE A DAMN ABOUT THE UNDERTAKER. >>I’M NOT AFRAID OF THE UNDERTAKER BECAUSE I’M ON A HOT STREAK. >>YES! >>WE’RE GOING TO RUN THROUGH ROMAN REIGNS AGAIN AND NOW WE’RE GOING TO ADD THE UNDERTAKER TO THAT. >>IT’S NO HOLDS BARRED.>>AT EXTREME RULES, WE EXTERM NAILT THE LEGACY OF THE UNDERTAKER. [BELL TOLLING]>>ROMAN NEVER ASKED ME FOR MY HELP. SHANE, YOU FELL VICTIM TO YOUR OWN EGO. I’M HERE TO COLLECT YOUR SOUL.>>THIS IS THE BIG FIGHT NOW. THIS IS EXTREME RULES. YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS? WE TAKE OUR YARD BACK. YOU TWO WILL NEVER REST.>>REST IN — >>IN — PEACE.>>PEACE! JONATHAN: HARD TO BELIEVE THAT THAT’S GOING TO BE THE MATCH THAT KICKS OFF EXTREME RULES TONIGHT. BETTS, THE FACT THAT THE NO HOLDS BARRED STIPULATION IS A PART OF THIS MATCH, WHO DO YOU THINK HAS THE ADVANTAGE? BETH: I’VE BEEN A FAN OF THE UNDERTAKER’S CAREER FOR DECADES, WATCHING EVERYTHING HE’S PUT FORTH IN THE WWE UNIVERSE AND I THINK THE NO HOLDS BARRED SITUATION DEFINITELY LEANS HEAVILY IN THE FAVOR OF UNDERTAKER AND THE BIG DOG ROLLINS. WHEN YOU SEE WHAT TRIPLE H AND UNDERTAKER DID AT WRESTLEMANIA AND YOU SEE WHAT THE UNDERTAKER BROUGHT TO THE TABLE IN A NO HOLDS BARRED STIPULATION I THINK THE DEAD MAN DEFINITELY IS GOING TO HOLD THE ADVANTAGE WITHOUT ANYTHING CONTAINING HIM, QUINING HIM. JONATHAN: THERE’S NOTHING THE UNDERTAKER HASN’T BEEN ABLE TO DO AND YOU THROW IN ROMAN REIGNS, A WEIRD DIE COCK — DICHOTOMY. WHAT DO YOU THINK? SAM: I GET EXCITED ANYTIME THE UNDERTAKER IS HERE AND THAT GONG STRIKES. BUT THERE’S NO DOUBT THAT THE NO HOLDS BARRED STIPULATION IS GOING TO ABSOLUTELY BE TO THE ADVANTAGE OF DREW MCINTYRE AND SHANE MCMAHON. SHANE MCMAHON IS ON THE A WINNING STREAK THE LIKES OF WHAT WE HAVEN’T SEEN. AND DREW MCINTYRE MAY HAVE THE BIGGEST APPETITE IN THE ENTIRE WWE LOCKER ROOM. HE’S HUNGRY FOR SUCCESS AND HE’S GOING TO BE ABLE TO DO THAT WITH ANYTHING AT HIS PISS POSTAL. CHARLY: AND HOW ABOUT THE BIZARRE PAIRING OF UNDERTAKER AND ROMAN REIGNS. HOW DO YOU SEE THIS PLAYING OUT? SAM: I THINK THEY’RE TWO DEFINING SUPERSTARS. EGOS PLAY A HAND. DO THEY WANT TO WORK TOGETHER OR BOTH WANT TO BE THE BIG DOG? BEMENT: I MISSPOKE EARLIER. I SAID ROLLINS INSTEAD OF ROMAN REIGNS BUT THE BIG DOG AND THE UNDERTAKER, TO ME THE TWO OF THEM IS AN UNSTOPPABLE FORCE. JOHN: YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND WHO’S STANDING ACROSS THE RING FROM YOU AND SAY, LISTEN, THIS IS WHAT MATTERS. IT’S ABOUT HERE AND TONIGHT. WE HAVE TO MOVE ON. LATER ON TONIGHT, I TOLD YOU, WE DON’T JUST HAVE ONE MATCH ON THIS KICKOFF SHOW, WE HAVE TWO. THE INTERCONTINENTAL TITLE ON THE LINE. FINN BáLOR TAKING ON SHINSUKE NAKAMURA. YOU THINK THAT’S GOING TO BE ACTION PACKED TO KICK THINGS OFF IN THE RING? I THINK SO AND TWO GUYS THAT WILL DEFINITELY WAY TO TO ONE-UP THOSE TWO? DREW GULAK AND TONE PHONE. THE CRUISERWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP IS ON THE LINE. YOU CAN’T KICK OFF THE SHOW ANY BETTER THAN THOSE TWO MATCHES RIGHTS THERE. CHARLY: ONE THING IS FOR SURE TONIGHT, WE DON’T KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT HERE AT EXTREME RULES BUT WWE TAKING EVERY PRECAUTION, PREPARING FOR ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING. >>HOW ARE YOU? BETH: I AM GREAT. WE’RE SURPRISE THAT WOULD YOU’RE HERE AFTER WHAT HAPPENED LAST WEEK. >>SURPRISED? DON’T YOU FOLLOW ONE OF WWE’S 17,000 SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS? I HAVE A MATCH TONIGHT. AGAINST DOLPH ZIGGLER. I GUESS YOU MEAN BECAUSE OF WHAT ABOUT WITH ME AND SHANE LAST WEEK. I’M SURE SHANE MCMAHON HAS A PROBLEM WITH ME BEING HERE BUT I DON’T WORK FOR SHANE MCMAHON. I WORK FOR WWE AND IF WE’VE IS GOING TO HAVE EXTREME RULES IN PHILADELPHIA, OF ALL PLACES, YOU BET KEVIN OWENS IS GOING TO BE THERE. WE GOOD? BETH: THANK YOU. KEVIN: ALL RIGHT, THANK YOU. JONATHAN: GUYS, IT’S PRETTY CLEAR THAT KEVIN OWENS IS FEELING VERY GOOD ABOUT HIMSELF TONIGHT. SAM: YEAH, BUT HE’S COMPLAINING A LOT LATELY. HE’S WORRIED ABOUT EVERYBODY ELSE ON “SMACKDOWN” EXCEPT HIMSELF. BETH: I THINK HE’S ON A ROLL. I LIKE WHAT KEVIN OWENS IS DOING AND I LIKE THAT HE’S SPEAKING HIS MIND. JOHN: I THINK HIS MATCH WITH DOLPH ZIGGLER TONIGHT — SOMETIMES WE SAY IT A LOT BUT I THINK IT COULD ABSOLUTELY STEAL THE SHOW. AMOUNT MATCH IS BROHM STROWMAN, BOBBY LASHLEY, LAST MAN STANDING. WE HAVEN’T SEEN BRAUN FOR TWO WEEKS. HE AND LASHLEY FOUGHT ALL OVER THE ARENA LAST TIME THEY MELT BUT IT ENDED IN SHOCK, IN AWE IN SILENCE, AND BOTH MEN TAKEN AWAY IN AN AMBULANCE.>>IT IS THE MONSTER AMONG MEN, BRAUN STROWMAN VS. THE ALMIGHTY BOBBY LASHLEY! THERE ARE NO DISQUALIFICATIONS, NO COUNTOUTS. FALLS COUNT ANYWHERE! >>THE MONSTER AND THE ALMIGHTY ARE GOING TO TEAR IT APART. >>UNBELIEVABLE POWER SHOWN BY THE ALMIGHTY. BOBBY CANNOT GET FRUSTRATED HERE. HE’S HAD BRAUN STROWMAN ON HIS HEELS THIS ENTIRE MATCH. AND NOW STROWMAN! >>EVERYBODY STAND BACK!>>WATCH IT, GUYS.>>WE GOT YOU, BOB. >>BE SAFE. >>BRAUN STROWMAN, LAST WEEK I WAS THE FIRST MAN STANDING. AND THIS SUNDAY AT EXTREME RULES, I WILL BE THE LAST MAN STANDING. [SIREN] CHARLY: I THINK I CAN SPEAK FOR EVERYONE WHEN I SAY THAT WAS A TERRIFYING NIGHT ON HONORED NIGHT “RAW.” A RUPTURED SPLEEN BEING ONE OF THE THINGS BOBBY LASHLEY SUFFERED. WHAT IS HE GOING TO SHOW TONIGHT? BETH: I CAN’T SAY I WAS EVER SMASHED THROUGH THE “RAW” SET BEFORE BUT PART OF BEING A WWE SUPERSTAR IS HAVING THAT RESILIENCE, BEING ABLE TO COME BACK. THESE ARE TWO MEN THAT ARE EXCEPTIONAL ALPHA MALES. WE’RE NOT TALK ABOUT AVERAGE RUN OF THE MILL HUMAN BEINGS. WE’RE TALKING ABOUT GODZILLA AND MOTHRA HERE. [LAUGHTER] I WOULD VENTURE TO GUESS WE’RE — WE’RE GOING TO SEE THEM SHOW NEW FIGHTING SHAPE, WHETHER OR NOT THEY FEEL LIKE IT. SAM: THIS MATCH IS EVERYTHING. IN BUILDING IS GOING TO HAVE TO BE STRUCTURALLY SOUND BECAUSE THESE WHO TWO ARE GOING TO WANT TO TEAR THE BUILDING DOWN AROUND EACH OTHER. IT’S A LAST MAN STANDING MATCH. THEY HAVE TO KEEP THEIR OPPONENT ON THE GROUND. JONATHAN: THE FACTS THAT WE HAVEN’T SEEN BRAUN STROWMAN FOR A COUPLE OF WEEKS I THINK IS A SERIOUS DISADVANTAGE TO BOBBY LASHLEY BECAUSE HE DOESN’T KNOW WHAT KIND OF CONDITION BRAUN STROME SEASON GOING TO BE IN LEADING UP TO TONIGHT. PLENTY MORE ON THAT LATER ON. BUT RIGHT NOW, THERE ARE A COUPLE OF SUPERSTARS THAT QUITE FRANKLY, JUST ASKED FOR THIS TIME ON THE KICKOFF SHOW. >>SO TELL MOE — WHAT DO YOU THINK?>>I THINK YOU LOOK LIKE THE NEXT “RAW” WOMEN’S CHAMPION.>>I DO, DON’T I? >>YOU DO, YOU DO, AND IT IS A GOOD LOOK FOR YOU. AND I MEAN THAT STRICTLY PROFESSIONALLY BECAUSE TONIGHT — TONIGHT IS ALL ABOUT RELATE BRUFPLGTSE — RETRIBUTION. TONIGHT WE GET TO PAY BACK ALL THE PAIN AND ANGUISH BECKY AND SETH HAVE PUT ON US. I’M GOING TO STAKE A — TAKE A STEEL CHAIR AND LAY IT ACROSS SETH ROLLINS’ BACK OVER AND OVER. OR MAYBE I’LL PUT HIM THROUGH A TABLE FIRST. MAYBE MORE FUN, I’LL TAKE THIS TEA POT AND SMASH IT — >>YOU WILL NOT USE MY TEA POT FOR ANY SUCH THING. ESPECIALLY WHEN THERE IS A PERFECTLY FINAL KENDO’S — KENDO STICK WITH BECKY’S NAME ON IT. YOU SEE THAT BALLS I’VE BEEN DYING DEET — BEAT SOME SENSE INTO THE THAN. I KNOW TONIGHT SETH AND BECKY’S RHYTHM [SNIFFLING] WILL END IN HEART BRAKE AND YOU IS — AND I WILL FOREVER BE KNOWN AS THE HOME WRECKERS, WHO NOT ONLY TOOK BOTH THEIR TITLES BUT ALSO DESTROYED THEIR DISGUSTING RELATIONSHIP. ♪ >>YOU COULD CALL THEM HOME WRECKERS OR THE NEW POWER COUPLE OF WWE “MONDAY NIGHT RAW.” BOTH THE “RAW” AND UNIVERSAL TITLES, “RAW” AND WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP TITLES ARE DEFINITELIED. HELLO AND WELCOME TO RINGSIDE. TOM ALONG WITH BYRON SEXTON AND COREY GRAVES REPRESENTING “SMACKDOWN” LIVE. THE FIRST ACTION READY TO GET STARTED AS THE SEATS ARE STILL FILLING IN HERE AT THE WELLS FARGO CENTER IN PHILADELPHIA. ♪ RING ANNOUNCER: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST, SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL, IS FOR THE INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP! INTRODUCING THE CHALLENGER, FROM KYOTO, JAPAN, WEIGHING IN AT 220 POUNDS, THE ARTEST KNOWN AS SHINSUKE NAKAMURA! TOM: WE KNOW THAT TONIGHT HERE IN PHILADELPHIA THE RULES WILL BE THROWN OUT THE WINDOW. CHAOS WILL ENSUE. COULD YOU IMAGINE IF WE KICKED OFF THE NIGHT WITH A BRAND-NEW INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPION? BYRON: I THINK IT’S A LEGITIMATE POSSIBILITY. THE LAST TIME WE SAW SHINSUKE NAKAMURA ON “SMACKDOWN,” WE SAW A MORE AGGRESSIVE SHINSUKE NAKAMURA. IT IS A REAL POSSIBILITY THAT SHINSUKE NAKAMURA LEAVES HERE AS NEW RESPONSIBLE CHAMPION. COREY: WE SAW A TRUE RETURN TO FORM FOR THE ARTIST KNOWN AS SHINSUKE NAKAMURA. WE COULD BE CALLING HIM CHAMP SOONER THAN LATER. TOM: SHINSUKE NAKAMURA WAS ABLE TO PIN FINN BáLOR ON “SMACKDOWN” THIS PAST WEEK. CAN HE DO IT AGAIN AGAINST THE EXTRAORDINARY MAN? RING ANNOUNCER: AND HIS OPPONENT, HE IS THE INTERNATIONAL CHAMPION, FINN BáLOR! TOM: FANS STILL FILING IN IN PHILADELPHIA FOR THE EXTREME RUFFELS EVENT WHICH WILL BEGIN STREAMING LIVE ON WWE NETWORK IN LESS THAN 40 MINUTES. BYRON: I TALKED TO HIM BEFORE AND FINN BáLOR HAD A VERY PENSIVE LOOK IN HIS EYES, VERY UNCHARACTERISTIC OF HIM. I SAID WHAT’S GOING ON? SHIN — SHINSUKE AND I HAD BUILT A RESPECT WITH EACH OTHER BUT AFTER LAST WEEK, THAT WENT OUT THE WINDOW. COREY: HE WANTED TO BE PUSHED BY THE BEST COMPETITION AVAILABLE AND THIS IS A PRIME EXAMPLE, A PRIME PLATFORM FOR FINN BáLOR TO SHOW THE WORLD HOW GOOD HE REALLY IS. BYRON: YOU COULD ARGUE SHINSUKE NAKAMURA’S CAREER WAS IN A BIT OF A SLUMP OR COLD STREAK, BUT IN ONE MATCHUP NAKAMURA REMINDED THE WE’VE UNIVERSE JUST WHAT HE’S CAPABLE OF. TOM: SHINSUKE NAKAMURA SAYING THIS PAST TUESDAY NIGHT ON “SMACKDOWN” — “NO MORE TAG TEAMS, ME ALONG — ALONE. I TRIKE FEAR. BYRON: IT’S A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT ENVIRONMENT TO SUCCEED IN A TAG TEAM ENVIRONMENT AS OPPOSED TO ONE-ON-ONE. TONIGHT COULD BE THE NEXT CHAPTER OF HIS STORIED CAREER. A MOMENT AGO, FINN BáLOR CHECKING OUT HIS OPPONENT. SHINSUKE NAKAMURA UNDERSTANDING THAT HE CANNOT HAVE ANY ROOM FOR ERROR HERE TONIGHT. COREY: CERTAINLY NO LOOK OF NERVOUSNESS ON THE FACE OF THE INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPION BUT YOU CAN BE SURE WITH WHAT FINN EXPERIENCED LAST WEEK, HE’S GOING TO BE EXTRA CAUTION — CAUTIOUS TONIGHT. TOM: WHAT A WAY TO SET THE PACE HERE IN PHILADELPHIA. BALOR AND NAKAMURA FOR THE EXTREME RULES KICKOFF SHOW. BYRON: BOTH OF THESE MEN WITH THE OPPORTUNITY TO ADD THEIR NAME TO A PRESTIGIOUS LIST OF CHAMPIONS. TOM: WHOA. NAKAMURA EARLY TRYING TO GET IN THE MIND OF FINN BáLOR. COREY: BALOR HAVING NONE OF IT. TOM: RIGHT BACK TO THE MIDSECTION. BYRON: YOU DON’T WANT TO MATCH STRIKES WITH SHINSUKE NAKAMURA UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. TOM: OH! LOW DROP KICK RIGHT TO THE FACE. RIGHT NOW FINN BáLOR IS ONE STEP QUICKER THAN HIS CHALLENGER AND FINN BáLOR, EVER SINCE WINNING BACK THE CHAMPIONSHIP AND A GREAT RIVALRY WITH BOBBY LASHLEY, NOW A TWO-TIME INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPION. WANTS IN TIME OF COMPETITION, WANTS TO BE PUSHED REPRESENTING HIS TITLE. COREY: FINN BáLOR LOOKS AT THE INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP PROUDLY, AS THE WORKHORSE CHAMPIONSHIP, SO TO SPEAK, OF WWE. THINK ABOUT THE GREELTS GREATS AND A HALF HELD IT. NAKAMURA. TOM: AND A SHOT TO THE MIDSECTION. LOOK OUT. KNEES RIGHT TO THE RIBS! BYRON: DRIVE ALL THE WIND OUT OF THE CHAMPION’S BOTH BODY. IT ONLY BENEFITS SHINSUKE. TOM: NAKAMURA. OUTSIDE THE ROACHES AND BALOR VERY, VERY WISE, SHUTTING HIM DOWN. COREY: WE SAID FINN BáLOR WOULDN’T MAKE THE SAME MISTAKES AS LAST WEEK, SHINSUKE CAN’T GET COMFORTABLE. EACH AND EVERY HE STEPS INSIDE THE RING — NAKAMURA COULD BE IN TROUBLE. TOM: CHOP DROP ON NAKAMURA! COREY: THIS IS THE KIND OF FIGHT FINN BáLOR HAD TO BRING TO THIS MATCH. TOM: AND NOW BALOR USING THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING AREA, MUCH LIKE NAKAMURA DID THIS PAST TUESDAY. COREY: ABSOLUTELY. FINN BáLOR SURELY HASN’T FORGETSABLE THE FAVORS FROM HIS OPPONENT LAST WEEK. TOM: AND BALLOR TOSSES KNOCK MUIRA BACK INSIDE BEFORE THE 10 COUNT. COREY: YOU HAVE TO BELIEVE BALOR WANTS THE SATISFACTION OF PUTTING SHIN — SHINSUKE AWAY FROM THE CENTER OF THE RING. TOM: NAKAMURA. COREY: ABLE TO SWITCH HIS HIPS, TRYING TO BREAK THE GRIP OF FINN BáLOR. TOM: AND NOW HE DOES IT. AND FINN FINLEY FROM THE — FOOT ON THE BOTTOM ROPE. TO THE COUNT OF FIVE AND FINALLY BREAKS THE SUBMISSION. COREY: WE ALWAYS TALK ABOUT THE LETHAL STRIKING ABILITY OF SHINSUKE NAKAMURA. FROM ANY ANGLE SHINSUKE CAN ATTACK. TOM: FIRST ACTION TONIGHT HERE AT THE EXTREME RULES KICKOFF SHOW, STREAMING LIVE ON THE WWE NETWORK FROM THE WELLS FARGO CENTER HERE IN PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA, AND A KNEE RIGHT TO THE BACK OF THE NECK. NAKAMURA. HOOK TO THE INSIDE ON BALOR AND A KICKOUT. 35 MINUTES UNTIL THE EXTREME RULES PAY-PER-VIEW BEGINS STREAMING LIVE ON THE WWE NETWORK. THE WWE UNIFORMS — UNIVERSE STILL FILING IN A CAPACITY CROWD EXPECTED HERE IN PHILADELPHIA FOR THIS EVENT. THIS IS THE INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP ON THE LINE. TWO SUPERSTARS REPRESENTING “SMACKDOWN” LIVE, FINN BáLOR AND SHINSUKE NAKAMURA. BYRON: BALOR FADING FAST, THE INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPION REALIZING HE’S IN A GREAT DEAL OF JEOPARDY. I DON’T THINK THERE’S ANY QUIT IN FINN BáLOR BUT NAKAMURA MAY NOT GIVE HIM THE ACTION. TOM: A BRILLIANT JOB BY SHINSUKE NAKAMURA SLOWING DOWN THE PACE. THAT HELPED HIM OUT THIS PAST TUESDAY ON “SMACKDOWN.” KEEPING THE PACE TO WHERE NAKAMURA WANTS IT. BYRON: BALOR GOT JUST ENOUGH OF THE GLANCING BLOW TO STOP THE CHALLENGER FOR THE MOMENT. COREY: FINN HAS TAKEN A LOT OF PUNISHMENT. CAN HE REGROUP FAST? TOM: NOW FINN BáLOR BACK UP TO HIS FEET IN THE CORNER. SHINSUKE NAKAMURA TRYING TO GATHER HIMSELF. BOOTS TO THE FACE. COREY: THE LIGHTNING QUICKNESS POSSESS BUILD THE INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPION. SMART MOVE GOING DOWN LOW. TOM: VERY SMART AND NOW A KICK TO THE BACK OF THE NECK TO NAKAMURA. BYRON: QUICKENING THE PACE. TOM: AND BALLOR ACROSS THE THROAT. THIS COULD PUT AWAY THE CHALLENGER. COVER, OH, AND NAKAMURA OUT AT TWO.>>WHEN YOU TWO LOSE, THAT’S IT.>>TWO REBELS WITH A CAUSE. >>NO MORE CHANCES. >>WE’LL SEE YOUR LITTLE STIPULATION.>>WE’LL EVEN RAISE YOU ONE.>>YOU’RE GOING TO PUT BOTH THOSE TITLES ON THE LINE AND IT’S WINNERS TAKE ALL.>>CHALLENGE ACCEPTED.>>SETH ROLLINS, THE UNIVERSAL CHAMPION, AND BECKY LYNCH, THE “RAW” WOMEN’S CHAMPION, FACE BARON CORBIN AND LACEY EVANS. WINNERS TAKE ALL IN AN EXTREME RULES MIXED TAG TEAM MATCH. >>WWE EXTREME RULES PAY-PER-VIEW, STREAMING LIVE ON WWE NETWORK TONIGHT, 7:00 EASTERN, 4:00 PACIFIC. AS ALWAYS, WWE NETWORK IS FREE FOR NEW SUB STRIKE — SUBSCRIBERS. TOM: BUT RIGHT NOW IT’S THE INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP ON THE LINE AND A COSTLY MISTAKE IN THE CORNER FOR NAKAMURA. FINN BáLOR GOING TO THE TOM. OH! BYRON: NAKAMURA UP JUST IN TIME TO PREVENT POTENTIALLY A CUE DAY GRAPH. TOM: KICK TO THE BACK OF THE NECK AND WATCH THIS. NAKAMURA ON THE SECOND ROPE. COREY: THAT SLIDING STEP GERMAN SUPLEX JUST PLANTED BALOR. TOM: WE SAW THAT MOVE FROM SHINSUKE NAKAMURA ON TUESDAY NIGHT. NOW TRYING TO WIN THE TITLE HERE TONIGHT. COREY: ROCK STAR STARTING TO FEEL IT. SHINSUKE COULD TASTE THE INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP ANY MOMENT NOW. HERE IT COMES. BYRON: WHAT A COUNTER BY THE CHAMPION. TOM: FINN BáLOR IS STILL ALIVE IN THIS FIGHT. COREY: RIGHT INTO THE GAULTS OF NAKAMURA. TOM: NAKAMURA FIRING OFF INTO THE CORNER. NOW BALOR GOING BACK UP TOP. TOM: NAKAMURA OUT OF THE WAY JUST IN TIME. KNEE TO THE BACK OF THE NECK! BYRON: SHINSUKE IS GOING TO WANT THE KNEE STRIKE. IT WILL SURELY PUT THE CHAMPION DOWN. TOM: KNOCK MUIRA, COVER ON BARL BALL OIRM. SHIN STHIN WINS HIS FIRST INTERCONTINENTAL TITLE! RING ANNOUNCER: HERE IS YOUR WINNER AND THE NEW INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPION. SHINSUKE NAKAMURA! BYRON: WE TALKED ABOUT A RETURN TO FORM, SHINSUKE REMEMBERING HIS STRENGTHS, WHO HE IS AND TONIGHT SHINSUKE NAKAMURA IS THE BRAND-NEW INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPION. COASTERY: YOU TAKE NOTHING AWAY FROM THE NOW FORMER CHAMPION FINN BáLOR. BUT MUCH LIKE WE SAW ON “SMACKDOWN” LIVE, NAKAMURA WAS A LITTLE TOO MUCH FOR BALOR. TOM: THIS CHANGED THE COMPLEXION OF THE MATCH. NAKAMURA ATTACKED FROM BEHIND, BAM, KNEE TO THE BACK OF THE NECK. COREY: AND THE OLD FAMILIAR SITE, THE KNEE STRIKE TURNED BALOR LIGHTS OUT FOR THE THREE-COUNT. SHINSUKE NAKAMURA BECOMES THE NEW INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPION. TOM: AND GRAVES, THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING OF OUR NIGHT HERE IN PHILADELPHIA. THE ENTIRE COMPLEXION OF WWE COULD LOOK ENTIRELY DIFFERENT COME MONDAY MORNING. IT’S EXTREME RULES IN THE CITY OF BROTHERLY LOVE. I CANNOT WAIT TO KEEP THIS THING ROLLING. JOHN: COREY, WE COULD NOT AGREE MORE AND YOU SAID IT GREAT. WHEN YOU GO BACK TO WHO YOU ARE, YOU BECOME SUCCESSFUL AND WE HAVE A NEW INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPION. TOM: NAKAMURA IS BACK. CHARLY: IT IS ABOUT TIME. BETH: CONGRATULATIONS TO NAKAMURA, HE CERTAINLY DESERVES IT. JOHN: IT DIDN’T TAKE VERY MUCH TIME FOR US TO CROWN A NEW INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPION HERE ON THE KICKOFF. AND YOU WONDER IF IT IS GOING TO BE THE SAME RESULT LATER TONIGHT WHEN KOFI KINGSTON PUTS HIS WWE CHAMPIONSHIP ON THE LINE AGAINST SAMOA JOE. IT’S BEEN A MAGICAL YEAR FOR KOFI, TAKING ON ALL COMERS BUT SMEA SAMOA JOE IS A SAVAGE AND WE WANT TO WALK OUT THE WWE CHAMPION AND END ANY MAGIC KOFI MIGHT HAVE LEFT.>>NEXT TO THE BIRTH OF MY KIDS AND MARRYING MY LIFE, WINNING THE WWE CHAMPIONSHIP AT WRESTLEMANIA WAS THE GREATEST MOMENT OF MY ENTIRE LIFE. AND I CONSIDER MYSELF TO BE NOT ONLY A FIGHTING CHAMPION — >>OH, IT’S KOFI! KOFI WON! >>I WANT TO BE ONE OF THE GREATEST WWE CHAMPIONS OF ALL TIME! MICHAEL: SAMOA JOE! >>IF YOU STAND IN MY WAY, I WILL PUT YOU DOWN.>>SAMOA JOE IS THE MOST DANGEROUS THREAT THAT KOFI KINGSTON HAS HAD TO FACE AS WWE CHAMPION. >>KOFI, FOR THE PAST TWO WEEKS WHEN I’VE LOCKED YOU UP AND I’VE PUT YOUR ASS TO SLEEP — >>AND FROM THE — COFFEEY OUT. >>YOU CAN’T REALIZE THAT WHAT IS STANDING IN FRONT OF ISSUE THE NEXT WWE CHAMPION. I GUARANTEE THE SAFETY OF YOU AND ALL THOSE YOU HOLD DEAR. AND ALL YOU HAVE TO DO, KOFI, IS SHAKE MY HAND.>>COVER OF PARADISE! >>SAMOA JOE THINKS HE’S A SHARK THAT HAS FOUND HIS PREY, BUT I’LL BE DAMNED IF I LET HIM EAT ME ALIVE! CHARLY: ALL RIGHT, AND NOW JOINING US HERE TO BREAK DOWN THEIR RESPECTIVE MATCHES TONIGHT, WE HAVE NONE OTHER THAN THE NEW DAY. GENTLEMEN, HOW’S IT GOING?>>CONFINEMENT WELL. QUITE WELL. >>GREAT, CHALY. CHARLY: IT IS A BIG NIGHT FOR REALLY ALL THREE OF YOU. BUT BIG E AND XAVIER WOODS, YOU HAVE A CHANCE TO MAKE HISTORY HERE, GOING FOR YOUR SIXTH TAG TEAM TITLES. DO YOU FEEL ANY ADDITIONAL PRESSURE HAVING THAT WEIGHT ON YOUR SHOULDERS? >>CHARLY, FIRST OF ALL, HAPPY BIRTHDAY! WHOOO! CHARLY: THANK YOU.>>SECOND OF YOU WILL, YOU ARE A VERY TALENTED WOMAN WHO WEARS MULTIPLE HATS AND YOU DO IT OH, SO WELL. I JUST WANT TO SALUTE YOU. CHARLY: THANK YOU VERY MUCH.>>YES, MA’AM AND YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT PRESSURE, CHARLY? AIN’T NOBODY BUSTING THE NEW DAY’S PIPES.>>WHAT’S MOST IMPORTANT IS THAT AT THE END OF THE NIGHT THE NEW DAY IS GOING TO BE WEARING ALL THE GOLD, CHARLY! CHARLY: ALL THE GOLD, I LOVE THAT. TONIGHT THERE’S THREE OF YOU. YOU HAVE TWO MASTERS. TOUGH CHANCE TO BRING TWO DIFFERENT TITLES OR KEEP ONE TITLE, BRING ONE TO THE NEW DAY. SO AS FAR AS THIS TAG TEAM MATCH GOES, THERE ARE THREE TEAMS HERE. YOU NEED TO BEAT TWO TEAMS TO WALK AWAY AS TAG TEAM CHAMPION. STATISTICALLY THERE’S ABOUT A 33.3% CHANCE THAT YOU WIN SO HOW DO YOU PLAN OF OVERCOMING THESE ODDS? >>CHARLY, THE CHANCES AREN’T THAT BAD. 1/3. 33.3, REPEATING. THAT’S MATH. I DON’T EVEN LIKE MATH. BUT WHAT IS MATH WHEN YOU COMPARE TO IT ALL THESE GOOD LOOKS AND UNICORN MAGIC?>>THAT’S TRUE BUT HELP MACHINERY, THOSE ARE SOME HEFTY BOYS. THEIR BACKS ARE SO ROUND. IT’S ACTUALLY KIND OF HARD TO PIN THEM. >>LIKE PINNING A BOWLING BALL WITH LEGS. ! !>>I CAN’T TELL YOU MUCH ABOUT HEAVY MACHINERY BUT I CAN TELL YOU ABOUT DANIEL BRYAN! UP REMEMBER WHAT HAPPENED? CHARLY: I DO REMEMBER. SOMETHING YOU’VE TALKED ABOUT SO MANY TIMES, ONE OF THE BIGGEST MOMENTS OF YOUR CAREER, OF YOUR LIFE. SAMOA JOE IS KNOWN FOR TEARING APART AND DESTROYING HIS OPPONENTS.>>VERY TRUE. HE’S MADE A CAREER OF TRYING TO GET INSIDE HIS OPPONENTS’ HEADS BUT A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO I GOT SNLEDS — INSIDE SNOWA’S JOEY MERCURY — SNOW — SAMOA JOE’S HEAD. TONIGHT AFTER I BEAT SAMOA JOE AND AFTER BIG E AND WOODS BEAT THEIR OPPONENTS, WE WILL BE YOUR WEAVE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT AND WE’VE WORLD — WE’VE WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS. BABY! IT’S GOING TO BE HISTORIC UP IN HERE. CHARLY: BEST OF LUCK TO ALL OF YOU.>>DO YOU KNOW WHY, DO YOU KNOW WHY?>>WHY? >>BECAUSE! DAY ROCKS — NEW. DAY ROCKS — >>WE STILL GOT IT. TOTEM POLLING OUT HERE. CHARLY: GOOD LUCK TO ALL OF YOU.>>WE WON’T NEED IT BUT THANK YOU, CHARLY. ARLY: THE POSITIVE ACTIVITY IS FILLING UP THE WELLS FARGO CENTER. JONATHAN: I HATE TO BE THE BEARER OF BAD NEWS. NOBODY LIKES THE ENTERTAINING SIDE OF NEW DAY MORE THAN MYSELF BUT THIS COULD BE A REALLY GOOD DAY FOR NEW DAY OR A REALLY BAD NIGHT. BETH, WHAT DO YOU THINK? BETH: I THINK THAT THE NEW DAY DOES HAVE A HUGE CHALLENGE FROM FRONT OF THEM, HAVING TO ESSENTIALLY BEET — BEAT TWO OTHER TEAMS BUT THE NEW DAY HAS PROVEN TIME AND TIME AGAIN THEY HAVE WHAT IT TAKES NOT ONLY TO WIN THE CHAMPINSHIP MULTIPLE TIMES BUT TO KEEP IT. SAM: SAMOA JOE IS UNCONSCIENCE BLI RITELESS. NO LATCHES FOR HIM IN THE RING TONIGHT. JONATHAN: WE HAVE PLENTY MORE MATCHES TONIGHT BUT A BIG-TIME THANK YOU FOR DIRTY HONEY FOR “WHEN I’M GONE QURLTS FOR THE THEME SONG FOR EXTREME RULES. FEDERAL ALBUM “DIRTY AND HOTTIE,” AVAILABLE ON APPLE MUSIC AND SPOTIFY. CHARLY: TONIGHT ROMAN REIGNS WITH THE UNLIKELIEST OF TAG TEAM PARENTS, THE UNDERTAKER IN A NO HOLDS BE AERED MATCH. JONATHAN: AND WE JUST HEARD FROM KOFI KINGSTON BUT HE HAS TO TAKE ON ONE OF THE BIGGEST SUPERSTARS IN THE WORLD TODAY FOR THE UNITED STATES CHAMPIONSHIP AGAINST SNOWA JOE. BETH: AND RICOCHET LOOKS TO PERU ONCE AND FOR ALL WHY HE IS WORTHY OF THE GOLD AS HE TAKES ON A.J. STYLES. JONATHAN: HOW ABOUT SIX TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP TRIPLE-THREAT MATCH? HEAVY MACHINERY AND DANIEL BRYAN AND ROWAN. CLIFF: AND BAYLEY DEFENDING HER “SMACKDOWN” WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP IN A TWO-ON-ONE HANDICAP MATCH AGAINST ALEXEI BLISS AND HER DEVOTED FOLLOWER T IN — NIKKI CROSS. JOHN: THEY WERE SUPPOSED TO BE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS. THAT DIDN’T HAPPEN. NOW IT’S GETTING DEEPLY PERSONAL BETWEEN KEVIN OWENS AND DOLPH ZIGGLER. BETH: AND THE “RAW” CHAMPIONSHIP UP FOR GRABS AGAINST THE ULTRATALENTED REVIVAL DEFENDING AGAINST THE USOS AND THEY ARE LOOKING TO CLAIM THEIR SEVENTH TAG TEAM TITLES. JONATHAN: THE LAST TIME WITH YOU SAW BRAUN STROWMAN WAS A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO ON “RAW.” BOTH ME — HE AND BOBBY LASHLEY WERE GOING INFLUENCE EACH OTHER AND THE ENTIRE SEPTEMBER. WHAT KIND OF CONDITION WILL BOBBY LASHLEY BE IN? CHARLY: AND ALEISTER BLACK HAS BEEN LOOK FOR SOMEONE TO FIGHT HIM. ANSWERING THAT CALL. CESARO. JONATHAN: SETH ROLLINS AND BECKY LYNCH. BUT TONIGHT, BARON CORBIN AND LACEY EVANS HAVE SOMEHOW MADE THIS A REALITY. WINNER TAKE BE ALL, BOTH SIDES, ON THE OTHER, IT’S NO MORE CHANCES IF LACEY AND BARON CORBIN ARE NOT SUCCESSFUL. BETH: AND TONIGHT IS FULL OF ACTION ON THE KICKOFF SHOW. TIME FOR SOME CRUISERWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP ACTION AND NONE OTHER THAN BIG JOSEPH AND THE CREW ARE STANDING BY AT RINGSIDE TO CALL THAT MATCH. LET’S GET TO IT, GUYS.>>THANKS, CHARLY, IT IS A JAM-PACKED TONIGHT. — NIGHT. ONE CHAMPIONSHIP HAS ALREADY CHANGED HANDS. ARE WE ABOUT TO SEE A SECOND — SECOND? >>IF THERE’S ONE PERSON WHO HAS AN ANSWER TO THAT, I BELIEVE IT IS TONY NESE. >>GULAK IS TOO DOMINANT, AND NEES IS TOO NICE. >>TIME FOR THE CRUISERWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP HERE AT EXTREME RULES.>>TONIGHT I’M GOING TO GET BACK WHAT I NEVER LOST. RING ANNOUNCER: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST, SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL, IS FOR THE WWE CRUISERWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP!

  1. Why why why why why IS THE INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH ON THE KICKOFF SHOW SHOWN THE RESPECT THE TITLE AND FINN DESERVES

  2. There is no difference between hollywood fictional movies and WWE drama…I think WWE is making people more stupid 😂😁
    The director deserves Noble Prize 😆

  3. Finn balor vs shinkue makemora was on the kickoff because they planned the match the day before extreme rules and that's what they do with matches if they planned them a day before

  4. LOL, what the heck is up with the guy at the beginning saying "I couldn't care less about her birthday!"…Everyone's faces just went blank and no one replied when he said that. Now that was a really awkward moment to start off the show!

  5. imagine if finn balor comes with his demon character and lose his match at kickoff show
    what the hell wwe u sucks

  6. Finn Balor was 3-0 at SummerSlam as The Demon. Hope he'll be Kofi's new #1 contender for the WWE Championship. Nakamura's IC title reign should be longer, he needs to have a new feud. Let Balor and Nakamura have their IC title rematch at Smackdown Live after Extreme Rules.

  7. Tony Nese has improved so much to be in the title picture. He was quite average and boring when he would be tagging with Gulak but since his feud with Buddy Murphy he has made strides on the mic and in the ring. Glad to see him and Gulak being in title matches.

  8. I see world wrestling for the first time and I want to ask, the blows they receive is true? I ask why they seem dangerous to the point that they can either seriously injure you or kill you.

  9. Nakamura vs Balor IC title match started Kick off show…..It’s totally a terrible discussion by WWE…

  10. So the IC, and Cruiserweight title on the kick off but the "I could care less" double or nothing is Main Event, and Shane opens then again it had Taker so… No one cares about Alexa and it was maybe card where it could of closed the kick-off, and since it wasn't a title match Braun could of started the kick off show

  11. Just call Shinsuke the King of Strong Style, thats not copyrighted by njpw i mean if it was he woulnt be nickname like that back on nxt so pls just call him king of strong style, calling him artist is plain disgusting (come on marks tell me how im wrong)

  12. they should have made him defend more and not 4 defenses in 4 months and lose it at a ppv thats trash wwe is turning Trash

  13. Ok after watching entire Ppv and watching preshow last Drew vs Nesse stole show before the show officially started damn it.

  14. This ain’t WCW, this ain’t Monday Night Raw, this ain’t SmackDown, this ain’t even WWE! This my friends is E C (bleep) W!!!!
