Video package on Braun and Roman's feud.
Out to start the show is General Manager Kurt Angle. He says that Roman settled the score with Braun and he suffered at shattered elbow, receiving surgery. Kurt says Braun will be out of action for up to six months. Who will challenge Brock Lesnar for the Universal Title. Angle says it has to be earned, not given. At Extreme Rules, there will be a Fatal Five-way to determine number one contender. Seth Rollins, Samoa Joe, Finn Balor, Bray Wyatt and Roman Reigns will all be part of the Fatal Five-way. Roman Reigns starts to make his way to the ring. Roman says he is the number one contender, it is his yard, he beat the Undertaker at WrestleMania, he took down Braun and he is the only one who can beat Lesnar for the Universal Title. Out comes Finn Balor who says he never lost his title and was the first Universal Champion and he is the number one contender. Roman says he has heart but not the killer instinct to beat Brock. Finn reminds Roman that on his first night of Raw he beat Reigns. Out comes Samoa Joe. Joe says it has to do with action and result. He says he will win at the Five-way. Here comes Bray Wyatt, appearing in the center of the ring. He says that the Beast approaches, and the rest of them are scared. Now here comes Seth Rollins, he says he is ready for fighting Samoa Joe and charges at him, Bray takes down Finn, Roman goes after Bray, Seth is left standing in the ring. Then Bray takes down Seth, Superman Punch to Bray by Roman, Finn goes on top rope, slingblade ro Roman, then flips out of the ring onto Seth and Bray. Finn is left alone in the ring.
