Dolph comes out. Ziggler says that we will find out that the stipulation to their match…..is a secret. So he’s not telling us because he won’t allow Drew to prepare. Ziggler then calls Drew a backstabber and Drew says he’s the WWE Champion.
Dolph mentions that there is a blank page in Drew’s WWE career from 2014-2017. Drew says he’s proud of it because it wrote his comeback story. Dolph says there’s a list of people Drew left behind and stabbed in the back to get to the top. Dolph says he brought someone here to prove it. Out comes recently released Heath Slater.
Slater recalls the history between the two, and he says the Drew McIntyre of 2020 is the chosen one, not the one when he first was in WWE. He then rewinds us back to WrestleMania and Slater remembers crying when he won the WWE Title because he loved him. Slater called Drew everyday when Drew was released, and calls him his brother. Slater then asks where Drew was for him. He asks the last time he and Drew talked and Drew can’t remember. Slater is fighting for her two daughters today and he wants Drew to know that he was there for him and Drew wasn’t there for him. On The Bump, he reminds Drew that he said he petitioned for a match between them and the next minute he was uneployed.
Heath says he wants Drew to be a man of his word and give him what he deserves as a friend. Drew doesn’t want to fight him. Heath shoves him. Then, he slaps him. Drew says he’s on.

It’s doing better than his ego, since things haven’t been going well for Seth since WrestleMania.
Owens says that facing someone at WrestleMania creates a bond because it’s the reason they do what they do, so whether it’s an enemy or a friend, Owens wanted to give Seth something to commemorate the WrestleMania moment they created.

He suggests that Owens has more to gain fighting with Seth than against him, and he should consider fighting for the greater good. Out comes Mysterio and Dominick.
Mysterio says Owens won’t fall for it and he accepts Seth’s challenge. And at Extreme Rules, Seth’s destiny will be in his hands. Seth asks Rey about his tag team partner, Aliester Black. He suggests that maybe his son can take his place and one of his eyes can be taken. Owens interjects and he says he’ll never fight on Seth’s side, but he’ll fight on Rey’s side.
