From the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York
Report by Sean Hopkins of WrestlingNewsWorld.com
The show opens with Jon Stewart in the ring. He asks the fans what's up, and welcomes them to SummerSlam. Stewart says no sleep 'til, and let's the crowd finish with Brooklyn. Stewart says ten of the best bouts you will witness will happen tonight. He's spent a lot of time in the world of politics, it's nice to be back in reality. The difference between politics and what you'll see tonight is the WWE SuperStars respect their audience. Stewart name checks a couple of wrestlers, Rusev, Ziggler, Orton, Sheamus, Reigns, Ambrose, Rollins, Cena, Lesnar, and the Undertaker. Stewart says he's one of those guys who's still angry about Lesnar ending the streak. He wanted to come here tonight to tell Lesnar how he feels. As a small, weak man, he knew he'd need backup. So he's going to interview Lesnar, but he wanted to bring out a friend in the Hardcore Legend, Mick Foley! Foley comes out to a big pop from the fans.
Big Foley chants from the crowd as Steward and Mick hug each other. Foley says he's got a funny story to tell right here in Brooklyn, New York. He says a couple of days ago when Jon called him, the connection was a little bit fuzzy, but Mick had the phone against his missing ear, so it was his bad. He thought Stewart wanted him to come here to interview 'Rock', cause he missed the 'B'. Had Foley known, this conversation would not be happening. Stewart can't believe that Foley is afraid of Brock Lesnar. Foley says that's exactly what he's saying. He's terrified of Lesnar. Stewart reminds Foley of his Hell in a Cell match against Taker. He says it was inspiring. Foley says it was inspiring, and emotional, and 17 YEARS AGO! Stewart had just begun his Daily Show run. Foley says with everywhere he's been, he's never visited Suplex City, and he's not starting now, so Stewart is on his own. He tells Stewart to have a nice day, and Stewart says 'let's just go, then'. The two exit the ring, and we go to a video package highlighting tonight's show.
The pyro hits, and Michael Cole welcomes us to the show and Randy Orton's music hits. The Viper comes out to a decent pop from the crowd.
Sheamus is out next, and the Irishman doesn't get nearly as warm a welcome from the fans.

Cole says that tonight Hollywood comes to SummerSlam, and tosses it to a video package that's pretty awesome and comic book themed, hyping the next match between King Barrett and Stardust vs. Neville and Stephen Amell.
King Barrett is the first man to make his way out for the next match, wearing his goofy metallic shoulder pads and carrying his crowd. Stardust is out next, and the two make their way to the ring together to a bit of a lackluster reaction from the crowd.
Neville's music hits, and he makes his way out first, looking to have a bit of trouble with his cape on his way down the aisle. Amell actually gets an entrance of his own, wearing an Arrow inspired hoodie. They too don't get much of a reaction, but the crowd at least seems a little excited to see Neville.
