- Paul Heyman interrupts Teddy Long in his office and says he heard Teddy was looking for him. Long wants Heyman to join commentary for Punk's match tonight to provide insight on the match. Heyman tries to say 'no' but Long says he is in charge and since Punk wants to be defiant and do what he wants then Long will do the opposite of what Punk wants and let Heyman be out there.
- Dolph Ziggler makes his entrance to the ring as we see footage from the WWE App of Ziggler and AJ where Ziggler tries to get her to focus and stop with the Kaitlyn stuff. Ziggler cuts an in-ring promo on Alberto Del Rio and how the past few weeks have been blurry since his concussion. Ziggler says Del Rio couldn't fool the fans into thinking he was likable. Ouch. Ziggler says he can do in this ring what nobody else can. He says he is taking back what is rightfully his at Money in the Bank.
