He comes out in a tuxedo and with his hair pulled back. He does a Spin-A-Rooni to some cheers. He plays to the hometown crowd some and says, "Houston, we have a problem." He shows a video of Sheamus stealing Del Rio's car from RAW. Booker laughs about the ordeal but says Sheamus crossed the line. He wants Sheamus to come out and apologize. (Déja vu?)
Sheamus comes out and says he had lots of fun in Del Rio's car. He says if you do the crime then you have to do the time. He apologizes to Booker, the fans, and Del Rio.

Booker tells him if he files charges then Booker won't be able to defend his title at SummerSlam. Del Rio says he doesn't care. Sheamus says they don't have to wait for the PPV. He wants to have a title match tonight. Del Rio says his head tells him to wait but he agrees. Booker says, "Can you dig that, Sucka?"
