INTERVIEW: Chris Jericho.
Matt Striker wanted to know Jericho’s thoughts on the aftermath of the Dance-Off, and he vowed that will not play by anyone’s rules when he faces Fandango on Sunday.
Triple H (Hunter Hearst Helmsley) stood in the steel cage as he labeled the ring the place where he learned how to fight, and became a man. He was once told that “If you want to thrive at this, you have to learn how to hate”. And over the years, he did. He then called out Brock Lesnar, and Paul Heyman informed Hunter that he will be too embarrassed to face his family after this coming Sunday. Heyman stated that Lesnar is ready to fight, but not until Extreme Rules.
They Tried to leave when Hunter stopped them and wondered why Lesnar won’t face him like a man, and Hunter viewed it as Heyman not being able to afford it. Hunter believed that when Lesnar loses on Sunday, he will lose his mystique and he also wondered if Lesnar is scared of him. Lesnar advanced towards the cage as Hunter dared him, while Heyman and the referees told him not to. Lesnar didn’t listen, entered the cage and both he and Hunter went at it. Heyman closed the cage door while Lesnar charged at Hunter and was thrown head first into the cage!!!
Hunter punched him repeatedly and then threw him through the cage door, knocking down Heyman and the referees while he landed in the floor!!!
Matches 6 and 7 are the highlight matches of the night!!!!
Heath Slater, The Miz, John Cena, Team Hell No and The Shield are the wrestlers of the night!!!!!
Triple H throwing Brock Lesnar head first into the steel cage and through the cage door were the highlights of the night!!!!!
ANALYSIS: The Dance-off was unnecessary, the Divas match should have gotten more airtime and there were parts from the first hour that were not needed at all!!!!!!!!!
