Brie Bella joins her new husband Daniel Bryan in the ring to start a YES chant, but Stephanie McMahon cuts them off and wants to congratulate them. She says she got the two of them an untraditional wedding gift, and Bryan will defend his title against Kane at Extreme Rules. Stephanie says Kane wants to destroy Bryan, so he should probably get his wife out of harm's way and Bryan helps her out of the ring. Kane's pyro goes off and Stephanie yells at him to stop, but Kane instead runs in through the crowd and chokes Bryan. He throws him on the floor and Bryan tries to fight back, but Kane Tombstones him on the floor and takes the ring steps apart. Kane ignores Stephanie's call to stop, and he Tombstones Bryan on top of the steps, staring at him as paramedics run out and board Bryan on a stretcher. Kane comes back and throws Bryan off the stretcher, then he takes apart the commentary table and hits a Tombstone on top of the table.
BP: Pretty good opening segment. This is something I would expect to close out a show, but it was effective in sympathizing for Bryan and getting heat for Kane.
#1 Contender's Tournament (Intercontinental Championship)
Semifinals – Bad News Barrett vs Sheamus
Sheamus hits Wade a few times and hits a rolling senton slam, then he heads up top and splashes Wade on the floor. We get back from a break to see Sheamus hit some forearm shots and a kneelift, then he clubs Wade's chest but Wade hits Winds of Change for two. Wade calls for the Bullhammer but Sheamus ducks, then Wade kicks him but Sheamus comes right back with White Noise for a near fall. They slug it out a bit more and end up in the corner, and Sheamus tries to pulls Wade back in from the apron but Wade hits the Bullhammer and makes the cover.
Winner – Bad News Barrett
Bray Wyatt cuts a promo on how he's getting closer to making John Cena snap, and he says the people don't even like Cena anymore because they see the truth. He starts singing 'He's Got The Whole World (In His Hands)" and the crowd joins him, so Bray calls on his brothers to continue singing and smiles as he kneels down.
