Lana and Dolph Ziggler make their way to the ring.
Dolph- Because of that, DAMN it feels good to be back! It feels good to be back here with you (Lana). See the last 6 weeks or so have been a little rough for me. The Bulgarian baboon crushed my throat with his crutch. It was hard to breath, it was hard to drink, it was hard to eat. Let's just say I was sick of sitting at home drinking my dinners out of a straw. But the worst was sitting at home watching helpless as Summer put Lana in that Accolade. Watching her cringing, struggling to get free. Those 6 weeks sitting at home, I didn't know when or if I was going to return. Seeing what happened I knew I'd be back. I had to find you and see if you were ok. What was the very first thing, the VERY FIRST THING, you said to me?
Lana- I said we have to crust those bastards
Dolph- Yes! Can you believe that, she didn't want me to cuddle her, she wanted revenge! I mean damn that is hot! How how is that?! (King: hot!) You're right I was thinking the same thing. I knew I had to come back and help my Lana kick the phony right off of Summer.
Lana- Dolph what I always like about you is that your always make me laugh and you always fight for what you believe in. And I believe I have to stand up for myself and speak up regardless of the circumstance. And this is why we make a great team. And also kind of like the best that I slapped that stupid Rusev in the face and shoved that fishy fish in Summer's face.
Dolph- Proving that you're not only strong and independent, but you have a great sense of humor. Who else enjoyed watching Summer eat sushi live?! There's something I've known for a very long time, that you're a bonafide badass.
Lana- Well Rusev can have his stupid pathetic want-to-be Lana. While you and only you get the real thing. *They kiss*
Rusev's flag drops behind them and Rusev makes his way out to the ramp. *USA Chants*
Rusev- You think you know pain? You think sitting at home watching Lana struggle is pain? Well at Summerslam I'm going to show you what a real pain is. When I crush your throat again and drive my foot into your back and crush your spin into a little jigsaw puzzle, then I'll put you in the Accolade and you'll beg me for mercy. Right before you pass out I'll let you go. I want you to see something, how my Summer puts Lana in the Accolade. Then you'll be face to face and you're gonna feel her agony, see tears coming out her eyes, hear her screams in your ears. You will be helpless, then and only then you will know what real pain is. Ziggler at SummerSlam I put and end to you once and for all.
Dolph- Rusev, Rusev, Rusev my comeback hasn't even begun. My comeback doesn't begin until SummerSlam when I kick my teeth down your throat and steal your girlfriend....the REAL one.

Barrett- At SummerSlam Red and Green turns black and blue.
Stardust-Cause he's going to punch you

Team Bella makes their way to the ring. We see footage from Raw of Nikki being defeated by NXT Women's Champion Sasha Banks.
Alicia Fox- Allow me to introduce to you a Diva who in 26 days will be the longest reigning Diva's Champion in history. A woman who represents strength and integrity and fearlessness.
Brie- And the greatest twin sister in the world.
Fox- Nikki Bella!
Nikki- Thank you girlies so much, I honestly love you both so much. As you all know I pride myself on being fearless. But even I, Nikki Bella, have doubts, too. Ever since this Diva's revolution has begun a few weeks ago, Brie, Foxy and myself have had to really step our games up. And this past Monday, as you saw, I had my toughest challenge yet against Sasha Banks. But Sasha, if you're listening, you didn't disappoint. You put up on heck of a fight, I mean one day I honest believe, all three of us truly believe, you're going to make an amazing Diva's Champion. But that day is not TODAY, what you think that you got one fluke victory on Raw and that makes you some revolutionary?! I have been champion for 270 days. I am the most dominant diva in WWE. Which makes me the most powerful woman in sports entertainment world wide.
Fox- So true, so true, it is. And we are so honored and proud to be apart of what social media is calling the Diva's Revolution. Unfortunately it's about to come to an end, because come Sunday at SummerSlam team PCB, team BAD is going to fall to team BELLA.
Nikki- Anyway enough about Sunday, who wants to hear about that? Why we really all came out here was to thank all of you. Honestly, on behalf of the entire Diva's division.
-Team B.A.D. interrupts-
Naomi- Well excuse me! Looky hear. You don't speak for us, ok? You can save that phony insincere speech because no one is buying it. I got some advice for you ladies, don't waste your time preparing a victory speech for SummerSlam because it ain't gonna happen, boo.
Sasha- You guys already know what's true. This past week on Monday I made you tap out Nikki, and come SummerSlam team Bella is going to crash and burn. You guys are going to find out how dangerous Team B.A.D. can be.
Brie- Oh Sasha you do not intimidate us one bit. Sure you call yourself the boss, but I can think of a word that better suits you that starts with the letter B. (Bella? That's a pretty big insult)
Sasha- Oh! Oh, oh! Cute, oh Brie, do you want to have happen what happened to Nikki on Raw? I beat her, you're going to be a loser just like her.
Nikki- Um still the champ thank you!
Sasha- Brie, or should I call you Daniel Bryan's wife, I mean after all, all you've been doing is riding your injured husband's coattails. Yeah. Yes? The only time you're going to be saying yes is when the referee asks if you want to give up, and you can bank---
Brie- Instead of banking on it, why don't you shove it?!
-Becky Lynch and Charlotte come out-
Becky- Ladies, lasses, girls. You can bank on it, you can shove it. It's all the same to me, because you're both in for a good old fashioned Lass kicking.

Ambrose- Wyatt boys! We been up all night thinking about all the painful things we can do to you, since our match doesn't allow pliers or blowtorch or pipe or we'll get "disqualified." I've been thinking about how to torture you.
