We have to listen to Shane being called the Best in the World every week and Kevin says it makes him want to bang his head on the table every week.
Shane tells them to cut Kevin’s mic.
Kevin takes another mic and he tells the idiot there is more than one mic. Every time you call yourself the best in the world, it is an insult to everyone in the back who fights every week. When you call yourself the best in the world, everyone in the back want to tell Shane to kiss his ass.
Kevin takes a headset and he says he is not done. Kevin says Shane takes TV time from Buddy Murphy, Asuka, Kairi Sane, Apollo Crews, Ali, Authors of Pain, and more.

Daniel Bryan and Erick Rowan come out and Daniel says that you should be booing the New Day. Even though they won last week and Xavier was sent through a table, the New Day come out gyrating and joking about touching tips. They do not take things seriously. When the New Day win the tag titles, no one takes them seriously.
Xavier says Bryan talks too much without saying anything and he wants to hear what Rowan has to say. You confuse us because you were taking orders from Bray, then Harper, and now Daniel. Xavier wants to know who Rowan’s daddy is.
Daniel says that The New Day deflects true criticism with jokes and humor. New Day are some of the best athletes in WWE. They have had some of the best tag matches in WWE history. Yet, somehow, New Day never escapes the middle of the card and are not seen as anything more than comedy acts. They would be the worst thing for the tag titles, other than those buffoons Heavy Machinery winning the titles. They follow in the New Day’s lead and act like jokes.
Heavy Machinery’s music interrupts Daniel and Otis and Tucker make their way to the stage.
Tucker says they get it, you are one of the best and the champ. At Stomping Grounds, in their first PPV match, there was no denying that they took Rowan and Bryan to the limit. They showed you what they are about. They got back to work and they beat Dolph Ziggler and Kevin Owens to earn their spot in this match.
Otis says they are blue collar solid. Tucker says that means you overcome any obstacle, including the longest reigning tag team champions, the New Day. Tucker says they will have to put their sixth reign on the side because Heavy Machinery are winning on Sunday.
Tucker says they will show the world there is no party like a Blue Collar Party. Otis says that is Sunday, but tonight, Woods and Daniel, we have a match. Otis says he is coming.

Aleister Black is in the back getting ready to find out who is knocking on his door for a match at Extreme Rules.
We go to commercial.
We are back and Ali says when you see evil, you are supposed to run, but not him. He runs to it. It is not because he is a man without fear. He knows evil wins when the good does nothing. It does not matter what evil looks like, he will fight it. He saw it every night working the midnight shift as a cop. He saw evil among the people who swore to protect and serve. There is no monster who can scare him and no evil he won’t battle. If the devil wants to face him again, he will ask him to have this dance. For anyone out there facing their own evil, evil only wins when you won’t show up to fight.
Aleister Black is in his room and he has a chair in split screen. Tom says the contract has been signed and your opponent will not identify himself at this time.

We see someone walk around the chair and we see that it is Cesaro.

Black says this is so very good. This Sunday, he is going to fight you.
Black leaves the room.
