Last night at Extreme Rules we witnessed Samoa Joe take the Number One contender position for the Universal Championship, currently in the hands of The Beast Brock Lesnar. Joe won't get his Title Match until July 9th at the next Raw exclusive pay-per-view, Great Balls of Fire, so what is in store for him until then? Last night, we also witnessed the crowning of new champions, The Miz won his Championship match against Dean Ambrose, making him 7-time Intercontinental Champion. The team of Cesaro and Sheamus won their cage match against the Hardy Boyz making them 2-time Raw Tag Team Champions. Alexa Bliss was victorious and retained her title with the kendo stick assist. Where do we go from here? Will new feuds begin? Will rematches take place? Let's find out!
We start off with Bray Wyatt making his way to the ring. He says that last night was the beginning of the end. He said he had a chance to save everyone from damnation. He says he is still every bit of the god that he has always been. He is here to cast judgement on those that are guilty, Finn Balor, Samoa Joe, Seth Rollins, and Roman Reigns are all guilty. One by one they must all be punished and first up is Roman Reigns. Out comes Roman. Roman says the crowd's chants are why he is "the guy". He then punches Bray and say's that is what happens when your run your mouth in his yard. Match begins!

Winner: Roman Reigns after Superman Punch and a Spear
Backstage Enzo and Cass do an interview about his attacker. Tonight they have a match against Gallows and Andersen. Enzo says he has no idea who did it. He thinks Corey Graves may have the scoop. Cass says he doesn't know but the fact that some people think it was Cass himself really insulted him. Cass says he always has Enzo's back. Charlee and Enzo exchange flirting looks.
Kurt Angle is looking at his phone when Alexa Bliss comes up. She says she is here to help him, she's done with Bayley, tonight she wants to celebrate her entire life. She wants to do a "This is My Life" segment. Kurt says that's a terrible idea since last week's segment was one of the worst in the history of Raw. Angle says tonight she is having a title match against Nia Jax tonight! Seriously.
Samson starts in the ring trying to sing his song, then Dean interrupts and takes out Samson, then grabs the mic and says he wants his rematch with Miz, Miz comes on the screen and says there will not be a rematch tonight, just a celebration for his Comeback Tour. Ambrose is distracted and Samson takes him out for interrupting his song.
Backstage Ambrose is looking for Miz's dressing room and asks Angle for a rematch even if it's backstage. Angle tells him he needs to cool off and let the celebration go as planned.
