Jinder Mahal vs. Two Jobbers
Jinder cuts a split screen pre-recorded promo and tells Ryback to watch closely how he defeats his two opponents faster than he can fathom. The jobbers have to tag in and out. Mahal hits two moves and applies the Camel Clutch for the super-quick win.
Winner by submission: Jinder Mahal
Mahal brings in the other guy and lays him on top of his partner and does a double Camel Clutch. Ryback comes out and Mahal retreats. Ryback then puts both men on his back and delivers his finisher and chants "Feed me more!" as Mahal looks on from the stage.
-Highlight Reel is next
Jericho is in the ring for the Highlight Reel. He welcomes us to the show for the first time in two years. He is interrupted by Vickie Guerrero who says she is here to speak on Ziggler's behalf. Jericho says he has no problem interviewing Ziggler's mother. They trade "Excuse Me!" chants. Vickie threatens to walk off his show. He pretends to be hurt by the news and then tells her, to "Get the hell out of here." He says he is kidding and asks her why she's so angry all the time.
Jericho sends to the JeriTron 6000 and shows footage of Alex Riley pinning Ziggler on Monday and his Tout video of the incident. He says Ziggler can't even win the little one. He puts Riley over and insults Vickie's hair. Vickie says Ziggler will prove at SummerSlam that Jericho has lost his touch. Jericho says his legacy speaks for itself but says maybe it's time to bring back Y2J. Jericho says, "Y2J is back, bay-bay!"
Ziggler comes out of nowhere and tries to attack Y2J from behind with the briefcase but Jericho ducks and lays him out. Vickie slaps Y2J and Ziggler hits the Zig Zag from behind and stands over him. He begs Y2J to get up and he clocks him in the head with the briefcase. Vickie laughs on the mic and says, "Who's your mother now?"
