After announcing a 20 man battle royal for a shot at the United States Championship, we cut to The Shield backstage, and Seth Rollins says that change is upon them. Rollins says they are the new guard and they are better, stronger and faster than everyone else and they are laying down a challenge. Roman Reigns says they have served justice at every challenge so far, and nothing is different so they are making an open challenge for Summerslam. He says whatever two men want to face him and Rollins can step up, then Dean Ambrose says his United States Championship is no different either. Ambrose says he's the real champion because everyone runs from his title, then he says he isn't scared of anyone in the battle royal. He says the only way he could lose is if Andre The Giant's ghost was competing but that won't happen, then they throw the camera out of the way as the segment ends.
CM Punk is with Josh Mathews backstage, and he says he took Paul Heyman's challenge so close to Summerslam because no one is afraid of him. He says Heyman opened his mouth and said something stupid, and he could beat Heyman in a one-on-one fight, but this won't be one. Punk says he has Brock Lesnar on Sunday, but he's pretty sure he will see a little bit from him sometime tonight, so he will be ready for anything that happens. Punk says Brock talks about being the best and the beast, but the only thing that matters is when he wins on Sunday, and the best is still the best.

Vince McMahon comes out and says there seems to be a bit of controversy, and he shows the fast count from the opening match and says they are owed an explanation. He brings Brad Maddox out to the ring and asks why he named himself the special guest referee, and Maddox says Daniel Bryan's matches tend to get out of hand. Maddox says he wanted to keep order and give the fans a fair show, then Vince asks him why it looked like he made a fast count. Maddox says it's been a while since he refereed a match, but he did the best he could, and Vince says that's OK if he tried. He asks Vince for a second chance, and Vince asks what he means, so Maddox asks to be the official for the WWE Championship match at Summerslam and Vince says he'll entertain the thought.

Maddox says he swears to be fair, then Vince goes to approve his request but Triple H cuts him off and makes his way down to the ring. HHH says he isn't there to air dirty laundry, and he knows they haven't agreed on many things lately, but this Sunday is very important. He says there might be more on the line than the WWE Championship, and they need someone to call it down the middle, and a guy who won't get intimidated. HHH says this guy wouldn't be Maddox, but it sounds more like him, then he kicks Maddox and drops him with a Pedigree before Vince leaves the ring.

The Miz introduces Daniel Bryan and John Cena as tonight's Miz TV guests, then he asks for their thoughts on Triple H naming himself the special guest referee. Bryan says he's glad someone stood up to Vince McMahon, and now they can have the match that they and the fans deserve. Cena says HHH is the perfect man to officiate a championship match, then Miz says they look to have tension and he asks Cena what his problem with Bryan is. Cena says there is no other reason for once, and it's only about the WWE Championship; he is the champion and Bryan wants to take it from him.

Miz says that's code for Cena saying Bryan can't beat him, then Miz reads into things and talks about Bryan not being good enough. Bryan tells him to shut up or he will kick him in the face, then he tells Cena he's sick of people thinking he puts up a good fight and that's all he's good for. Cena tries to say it's not like that but Bryan tells him to shut up, and he says he saw something in Cena last week, and he says Cena cares about fame instead of wrestling. Bryan says his shirt is a parody of Cena's, and doesn't want to be a parody, but he wants the WWE Championship because it means no one else is better than him.
Cena takes off his shirt and says Bryan almost got him, and the parody comment was strong, but they are both out there for the same exact reason. He says his shirt is just a shirt, just like a flag is just cloth, and it matters what the message behind it is, whether he gets cheered or booed. Cena says they do this for yes and no chants and 'you can't see me' gestures, and Bryan won't be the first or the last to try and break him. He says he isn't a parody because he isn't a joke, and he does this for the fans, just like a kid whose wish he granted, and that kid says he'll never give up during treatment. Cena says he does it for the fans wearing his shirt, and he hopes Bryan continues to take him lightly because that's what everyone else thought. Cena says he will beat Bryan like all of his doubters, and he says he's wrestled for twelve years trying to be the best, beating the likes of Shawn Michaels and Triple H.
Bryan says Cena acts like he isn't good enough, then Cena says he won't put Bryan in the same class until he earns it and wins this title. Bryan says he finally heard the truth and Cena doesn't respect him, and Cena couldn't understand how bad he wants the title because he's an eleven time champion. Bryan says Cena treats this like another match, but it's the biggest one of his match, and he is reminded of a Japanese tradition before a big match. He says they used to slap the opponent as hard as they could, and he wishes he could do that to Cena, but he's not a wrestler. Bryan says Cena doesn't deserve it either, then Cena tells Bryan to slap him and shoves him, then Bryan taunts him a bit until HHH makes his way out. He tries to talk Bryan and Cena down but Randy Orton walks out to the stage, and he holds his briefcase in the air as Cena and Bryan stare him down from the ring.

Fandango (w/ Summer Rae) vs R-Truth
Fandango and Truth have a brief dance off, then Fandango attacks Truth from behind but Truth turns the tables and knocks him out of the ring. Truth calls him to get back it, but Fandango grabs a mic and pronounces his name correctly, then Summer Rae helps him up and leaves.
Result - No Contest

Everybody attacks each other and Ryback makes two quick eliminations, then he slugs it out with Tensai until he ducks a clothesline and sends Tensai outside. Cesaro nearly takes Titus' head off with an uppercut, then 3MB teams up to eliminate Jimmy Uso while RVD goes after Ryback near the ropes. The fights end up in the corners and Drew tries to eliminate Kofi, but he holds the ropes and slides back in before Ryback goes after him. Kofi hits him several times while Khali chops Wade in the corner, then Truth throws Fandango outside but Fandango runs back in and throws him outside.
We get back from a break to see Titus try to throw RVD out, but RVD blocks it and clotheslines him outside before he goes after Wade in the corner. Kofi tries to eliminate Swagger and Cesaro, then Swagger throws him outside but Kofi somersaults over Cesaro and uses him to essentially kip back up. Kofi sends Swagger back and gets back in, but Swagger grabs him and finally eliminates him before they team up on Mark Henry in the corner. They lift him up but Henry elbows them and shoves them over the ropes, then he clotheslines Wade and throws him headfirst over the ropes.
Ryback gets in his face and chokes him, but Henry hits him and tries to throw him out, only to have Ryback land on the apron. RVD surprises him with a kick but he hangs on, then Henry splashes him to eliminate him and RVD faces off with Henry before putting him in a sleeper. Henry slams him into the turnbuckles and RVD lands on the apron, then Henry charges him but RVD pulls the ropes down and eliminates Henry to win. Henry gets back in the ring and gives RVD as a sign of respect, then he turns to leave but stays as The Shield makes their way through the crowd. They surround the ring and get ready to attack, but Big Show makes his return and The Shield backs away as he makes his way into the ring.
Winner - Rob Van Dam

Paul Heyman comes out and says CM Punk's name a few times, and he says he hears it over and Punk used to live for his love, but now he wants fan acceptance. Heyman says he takes it personally that they took Punk away from him, so tonight he will take the hero worship of Punk away from them. He says he's heard all about how it's a trap and says 'no kidding it is', then he says it was pretty easy to figure out and asks if they want to know the plan. Heyman says he had some help with his plan, then he introduces Brock Lesnar and says he doesn't even need to sell them on the best versus the beat. Heyman says actions speak louder than words and he did something special for Brock, then he plays a video package of Brock attacking Punk over the past few weeks. Brock smiles as Heyman says they know it's a trap, but now they need to know how they came up with the plan, the one that is so simple but suckered Punk in.
Heyman says he's willing to fight Punk tonight, but all Punk has to do is play the hero and fight him... and Brock at the same time. He says Punk would be a stupid hero if he did that, and all heroes are stupid because they have no options, but Punk has a choice tonight. Heyman says Punk has to let the fans down and step down from the fight, then he demands to know if Punk is a smart coward, or a stupid hero. Punk's music cues up but he doesn't enter from the stage, and instead runs in from behind and grabs a camera, beating Brock in the head and back with it.  Brock rolls outside but Punk takes him out with a suicide dive, then he gets a chair and beats Brock with it while he calls him a bitch. Punk corners Heyman and chases him up the ramp, then Curtis Axel runs out but Punk hits him with the chair and throws him into the stage. Punk lifts him up and hits a GTS on the stage, then he stares Brock down and embraces the fans' cheers as the show comes to a close.
