Next, Joe announces The Monday Night Messiah's competitor by stating, "Out next, the son of the greatest luchador ever in the history of wrestling, Dominik Mysterio!" Dominik makes his way down the ramp carrying the weapon he used to attack Rollins with last week.
As Dominik enters the ring and stands across from Rollins, Rollins just smirks. Rollins says Dominik looks like a coward, a scared little boy carrying a weapon.
Rollins begins, "When is it going to be enough?" to which Dominik replies, "It's never going to be enough!" Dominik tells Rollins, "You use the greater good as an excuse. The greater good you fight for, is for yourself!"
Seth states, "You are so, ungrateful. You are on the cusp of fulfilling your dream, and that is all because of me. You should be on your knees thanking me! You understand that?" Dominik doesn't break Rollins' glare as he responds, "You're right Seth, this was my dream. But now my dream, is to kick your ass at SummerSlam." Mysterio responds.
Seth states, "You wouldn't make it 10 minutes in a regular, standard match with me. However, I'm going to do you a little favor. You seem to be handy with that there kendo stick, so how about at SummerSlam... you can bring that with you. You can use it, or any other tool you see fit during the match. So that you, and your family have no excuse when I end your career, before it ever begins."
Rollins signs the contract and pushes it across the table to Dominik. Mysterio signs as well. "Give a round of applause for the newest WWE superstar, Dominik Mysterio."
Rollins states he has a match with Humberto Carrillo next. "Get ready for what you are forcing me to do to you in two weeks at SummerSlam." Rollins points outside of the ring telling Dominik to go!

Rollins manages to hang up Humberto on the top rope, but Seth is set down to the floor. However, as Humberto gets ready to leap off the top rope, Murphy tries to provide a distraction until he’s attacked by Dominik with a kendo stick.

In-Ring Randy Orton Delivers Message To Flair
As we return from commercial break, Orton tells Flair he SHOULD be mad at him, but he can't be. He repeats it again. I was only in this fight with KO because your ego got me into this fight. I can't be mad at you though, you're the Nature Boy and you're the dirtiest player in the game. For the past 20 years, you've had my back, you've taught me everything I know. You are one of the reasons I'm still in this ring after 20 years."
He goes on, "Do you remember 2002-2003, in Gloria, Illinois, I got myself into a little trouble, you came and you bailed me out. My 22 year old punk ass got into trouble and you were there for me. I loved ya Ric. But I don't respect you anymore and I DON'T love you. You are a liability to my career and me and everything I'm trying to get done. I looked back all those years and I know why you took me under your wing. I was the son you WISH you had.
Come on you old ass man, go ahead sob like a little baby, lets see it. You're not the Ric Flair everyone used to look up to. The Ric Flair I knew wouldn't knew wouldn't need a pace maker to keep his heart going, the Ric Flair I knew wouldn't have fallen into a coma like you did two years ago. You are not the same, you are washed up.
Orton continues, "At SummerSlam, I stand to take the championship for the 14th time, but instead, you were just worried about yourself."
Ric takes the mic, "I'm taking this very personal, and I hear ya. Lemme tell you a couple things about me. #1 the Ric Flair you knew in 2001 isn't here anymore. DO I like the spotlight? Yea. Do I like to call you the greatest? Yea. Do I like the spotlight? I'm 71 years old and I'm on RAW and it's the greatest. I am here because I DO want your approval, I do want to be there for you when you win your 14th, 15th, 16th... win. I wanna see you beat MY record, not John Cena's. A record your dad grew up on."
You crawled from the bottom to the top. Wanna see me get emotional? After 31 days of being in intensive care, I woke up, and all I wanted was to tell the people I love, that I loved them. I called everybody that mattered to me, I'm not trying to take anything with you. All I am right now, is Charlotte's dad that wants to be a part of Randy Orton's life.
I'm a big fan of you, and you're the guy to break my record. That's all I want.
Orton grabs the mic and throws it out of the ring and hugs Flair. Orton gets behind Flair and delivers a low blow. Orton whispers in Flair's ear something inaudible before standing once again. Orton stands over Flair as someone in the audience shouts, "Randy, DO NOT!" Orton steps back, the lights go out as Orton goes for a finishing kick to Flair (so we don't see it).
"You son of a BITCH!" Drew McIntyre runs into the ring. "You EVIL son of a bitch!" WWE officials join McIntyre in the ring, The Viper continues to pace the stage, watching, waiting. McIntyre stares up at Orton with pure hatrid and anger on his face. McIntyre gets to his feet and Orton stares him down. McIntyre turns his back on Orton, returning to the injured Ric Flair.

The show comes to a close.
