Tonight’s show begins with the graphic for the passing of Roddy Piper.

All of the wrestlers are on the stage wearing Hot Rod shirts. We have a ten bell salute.

We see a chair with Roddy Piper’s name on it with a kilt hanging from the chair. We see a video package for Roddy with some of his classic moments.

We are in San Jose, California and your announcers are Michael Cole, John Layfield, and Byron Saxton.

Seth Rollins makes his way to the ring.

Seth says there is only one person in WWE that can slow him down and that person is named Seth Rollins. Seth says in all seriousness, he has noticed a flaw. He has a problem and it has been plaguing him . . . sympathy. He says he is too sympathetic for his own good. If you need an example, look no further than last week when I drove my nose into the head of John Cena. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then this video is priceless.

Seth says it was disgusting. He could feel John’s nose crack on his knee. Seth says he could hear the pop when it shattered. Seth says he did not feel bad at first. That happens in a WWE ring. John’s face wasn’t the first thing he smashed and it won’t be the last thing. It is the first time he broke the face of the guy who runs this place.

Seth tells the mothers to shield their children’s eyes at a shot of this, as we see photos of John Cena’s face after the match. Who wouldn’t feel sympathy for a face like that? Seth says he knew we had to do the right thing. They needed to stop the match and award him the United States Title. John wanted to continue to fight and the referee was not as sympathetic. John beating him was Seth’s fault. Seth vows that will never happen again.

Seth says that he has a proposition for John Cena. He says that he knows that John is sitting at home in bed nursing your wounds, a cross between a raccoon and a Picasso painting. Why not do this one more time. John Cena versus Seth Rollins, one on one. Title for Title. Winner take all at the four hour extravaganza on the WWE Network, SummerSlam.

If you don’t have the grapefruits to show up at SummerSlam and don’t think you are tough enough, you can just forfeit the title. For the first time, someone will hold the WWE and US Titles at the same time.

Seth wants to talk about tonight. He says that San Jose is the place to be. Not because of you guys, but because of him. The champ is in the house. This is where he won his WWE World Title at Wrestlemania. This is the site of John Cena’s very first US Open Challenge. This gives Seth an idea. Anything John can do, clearly he can do better. For the first time ever, we are going to have a WWE World Championship Open Challenge.

That will start right about . . . RIGHT NOW.

We are back and JoJo asks Seth if this open challenge is legitimate. Seth says it is legitimate. He got 100% verification from the Authority, with two caveats. His opponent has to be under six feet tall. They have to be under 200 pounds. JoJo says that means a match against El Torito. Seth says you catch on quick, and that is no bull. He tells El Torito to come out and challenge him for the WWE Championship.
