WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins is out to kick off the show. Footage from last week is shown of Rollins giving John Cena a broken nose. Back live, Rollins has a mic in hand. He said the only person in WWE that can slow him down is named Seth Rollins. Rollins admits to a flaw: sympathy. He uses last week as an example when he drove his knee right into the nose of Cena. We see a slow motion replay of Rollins breaking the nose of Cena. A “Thank You Rollins” chant starts up in San Jose. He talks about feeling Cena’s nose crack on his knee to another loud reaction of cheers. Rollins said Cena’s face isn’t the last he will smash, but it is the first time he has broken the face of the man who runs the place. He shows photos of Cena’s broken nose from backstage last week. Rollins said the match should have been stopped and he should have been awarded the United States Championship. “John Cena caught me and that is on me.” He promises that will never, ever happen again. Rollins has a proposition for John Cena. “What do you say we do it one more time? John Cena vs. Seth Rollins. One on one. Title for title. Winner take all at the four hour extravaganza live on the WWE Network, SummerSlam.” He gives Cena the option of forfeiting his United States Championship and brings up how for the first time ever someone will hold both the WWE World Heavyweight and United States Championships at the same time. Rollins brings up becoming champion in San Jose earlier this year at WrestleMania and notes how this was the birth place of Cena’s open challenge. He announces for the first time ever an open challenge for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship…right now.
We are back live as JoJo is in the ring with Rollins asking if this open challenge is legitimate. Rollins said he got 100% verification from The Authority that he could do this. His opponent just must be under six feet tall and must be under 200 pounds. JoJo said he must mean he wants to have a match with El Torito. Rollins said that is “no bull” laughing. He calls out El Torito to challenge him for the title right now.
El Torito’s music hits. The music gets interrupted by Neville’s. Michael Cole, JBL and Byron Saxton talk about how Neville fits the bill tonight under the circumstances.
