Renee Young is backstage with Heyman, Axel and Ryback. Young asks Heyman about Axel's match and Heyman says that R-Truth will never be the IC champion. Heyman says that he is lucky that his name is not CM Punk. Heyman says that Punk will die a heroes death, and will fight to his last breath against a bigger, stronger opponent. Heyman says that after Battleground, Punk will never be able to threaten him, and that he will be Punk's lord, owner, master and he will be the best in the world. We then go to commercial.
We come back from commercial and Aksana is in the ring and looking damn fine (registered trademark to Ryan Clark). Brie Bella is out next and they hype Brie's title match sunday.
Brie Bella vs Aksana

She says that when Brie and Bryan have a baby, it will have a goatbeard. When the doctor sees the baby he is not going to spank the baby, but spank Brie instead. We then go to commercial.
Kofi Kingston vs Big E Langston
Big E comes out hot and beats Kofi down. Big E hits a belly-to-belly suplex for a two count and then a splash. Kofi fights out and gets the boot up in the turnbuckle.
