Kofi says before he gets into his match with Samoa Joe, he wants to make a challenge to the man he hopes will accept his challenge at SummerSlam.

Kofi says he wants to call out this person before he attacks him from behind and that man is Randy Orton.

Randy's music plays and he comes out.  

Kofi tells Randy that he called him out because they have a little history between them.  Kofi says he remembers clear as day.  November 16, 2009, Madison Square Garden, everyone chanting his name.  They remember because that was the night he whooped your ass all over the arena.  Here is a little reminder.

Kofi says that moment still gives him goosebumps.  That was the moment that he was to have made it to the next level, but that didn't happen.  The truth is that you used your influence to hold him down and hold him back so he would never reach the main event again.  That almost worked but it didn't because Kofi says he kept grinding and he kept pushing.  Kofi says he became what Randy never wanted him to be, your WWE Champion.

Randy says you think he used his influence to hold you back?  You're damn right I did.  Randy says he was doing Kofi a favor because he was not ready then and he is not ready now.  That title is a fluke. You talk about how hard you have worked, but Randy has been on top for 18 years.  Randy says he never had to work hard to get where he is because he is Randy Orton.  He never had to have a fake Jamaican accent, throw pancakes or shake his ass.  Randy says he wins titles, Royal Rumbles, and Wrestlemanias.  It is only because of him that you had a title shot against Daniel Bryan.  Randy says he injured Ali before the Elimination Chamber and you took his place.  Randy says that you don't deserve that championship and he can take that title any time he wants.

Kofi says why not put it to the test at SummerSlam.  Randy Orton versus Kofi Kingston for the WWE Championship.

Orton says if you want it, you got it.  When the 11 year fairy tale is over, it will be at the hand of the most destructive letters in WWE . . . RKO.

Randy Orton decides to stay at ringside to watch the next match.

Finn Balor makes his way to the ring.

Finn Balor is asked about the last few weeks with him losing the Intercontinental Champoinship followed by the return of Bray Wyatt after Finn's match last week on Raw.  Finn is asked if he knows why he was in Bray's crosshairs.  Finn says they have crossed paths before and he wonders if Bray is out for revenge or if it is something new.  Finn says he cannot explain this.  Finn says Bray is more twisted and messed up than ever.  Finn says he has stared fear in the eyes before and he did not back down then and he won't back down now.  Whatever you want to call yourself, he is challenging Bray to a match at SummerSlam.

We go to the Firefly Funhouse on the TitanTron and Bray shows up.  Bray says hello to Finn and he says Finn is so brave.  It is inspriing.  It is also why Mercy, Ramblin Rabbit and him are such big fans of Finn's.  The fiend is not a fan no matter how many times they tell the fiend how super duper you are.  Bray says the Fiend is accepting your challenge at SummerSlam.  Bray says he should warn Finn.  While you are an extraordinary man, the fiend is no man.  The fiend is an abomination.  The fiend is power.  The fiend remembers.  Let me in.

We go to commercial.

We take a look at the 24/7 Title changes on Raw.

Charlotte Flair is in the interview area and she says it was a slap in the face what happened.  Not being on SummerSlam and not being chosen by Bayley is an insult.  How do you leave the person who is responsible for the Women's Revolution off SummerSlam.  Charlotte says she will be at SummerSlam and she says her opponent will be better than Ember Moon.  She will prove why she is the greatest female superstar of all time.

Match Number Four:  Kevin Owens versus Roman Reigns with Guest Referee Drew McIntyre, guest time keeper Elias, and guest ring announcer Shane McMahon

Owens takes the mic and he says he has no problem going through Roman Reigns, Drew McIntyre, and Elias tonight to go after Shane.
