Vince askes him if he is ready for SummerSlam and Diesel would response by saying that he was born ready. Diesel would go to talk about his match with Sir Mo two weeks ago and how Mabel would attack him after the match only for Shawn Michaels to make the save. Diesel says that maybe he can or maybe he can't jacknife Mabel and we will find out at SummerSlam. The British Bulldog would make his way to the ring and asks Diesel to he his partner to accept Men on a Mission's challenge due to Lex Luger pertaining to a medical emergency in Atlanta. Diesel would accept the offer.

To close the show we look back at the heinous and surprising betrayal of The British Bulldog.
My Take: A+
This was the go home show for SummerSlam and boy oh boy was it a good one. This episode focused on the final build for the WWF Championship match between Diesel and King Mabel and The Undertaker making his death march to SummerSlam. While most of the matches from this episode started off the same with the heels jumping their opponents before the bell I gave this episode an A+ because of the SHOCKING heel turn of The British Bulldog aligning himself with Cornette and Men on a Mission.
