IN THE RING
Bret “The Hitman” Hart + Chris Jericho + Edge + Natalya + The Nexus (Wade Barrett & Skip Sheffield & Michael Tarver & Heath Slater & Justin Gabriel & Darren Young & David Otunga) & The Hart Dynasty (Unified Tag Team champions Tyson Kidd & David Hart Smith): Bret said for the past 2 weeks he’s been in Calgary training like an absolute lunatic; just to see everything fall apart. Bret said he’s a little disappointed. Bret said one week ago Edge and Chris Jericho decided to quit team WWE. Bret said 3 weeks ago he put his reputation on the line when he vouched for both of those guys to John Cena. Bret said they had the experience and saw the bigger picture. Bret said he must have been wrong but it wasn’t too late to fix things. Bret told Chris and Edge to come out. Chris Jericho came out. Chris said he can’t speak for Edge but Bret better dazzle him and tell him he’s the best in the world. Bret said he didn’t have time for that crap. Bret said this was Chris’s chance to be a man and step up to the plate. Bret said he put his reputation on the line just for him and Edge to join the team. Bret said if they don’t rejoin the team they’re hurting themselves. Bret said Nexus and none of the guys they turned their backs on will want anything to do with them. Bret said if Nexus wins they’re only hurting themselves. Bret said they’ll be outcasts; dogs without bones. Bret said this was their chance to rejoin and do the honorable thing. Bret asked him to rejoin team WWE. Chris said Bret made him think but his answer is still no. Chris said Bret is a phony and hypocrite. Chris said Bret’s not concerned about beating Nexus; he’s concerned about getting the worst beating of his life tonight. Chris said Bret is a frightened man. Chris said Bret knows he can’t beat Nexus without him and Edge. Chris said once again in the WWE; Bret Hart is screwed. Chris said he made it very clear he’s not interested in teaming with John Cena and him. Chris said tonight all he cares about is dismantling Bret Hart. Edge came out. Edge asked Chris what his problem was. Edge said they grew up idolizing Bret and he’s the reason they got into the business. Edge said Chris trained in his father’s dungeon and Edge had his poster on the wall. Edge said he saved up money so he could go to the arena and hope that Bret would put the sunglasses on his head. Edge said he was back on the team. Edge shook Bret’s hand and went to kick him but Bret caught his foot and went for the sharpshooter. Chris thumbed Bret in the eye and pulled Edge out of there. Natalya came running down to the ring freaking out. They showed a video backstage of Nexus beating up The Hart Dynasty. Wade said tonight wasn’t Bret’s night and The Hart Dynasty can’t be his replacements.

IN THE RING

Sheamus said he was scared of what he might do to Orton. Sheamus said he’s been hurting people since he stepped foot in the WWE; which is why he’s champion. Sheamus said if anyone doubts him they should watch the video of him beating up people very closely. Sheamus asked if anyone thought he was afraid of Orton now. Sheamus said that footage proves that he’s afraid of no one. Sheamus said he’s ended careers and he wants Orton out here so he can tell him face to face. Randy Orton came out. Sheamus said he was surprised Randy came out. Orton said he believes that Sheamus is capable of hurting people but Sheamus is full of it for not getting into the ring with him last week. Randy said he had a perfect opportunity to prove why he should be taken seriously. Sheamus said everyone takes him seriously. Randy said Sheamus blew the opportunity last week and he’ll blow it this Sunday. Randy said Sheamus can make up all the excuses he wants to but the fact still remains the same; he has never beaten Randy. Sheamus said everyone was wrong. Sheamus said he’ll be the champion after SummerSlam and when he beats Randy he will go back to the end of the line. Sheamus said as long as he’s champion Randy will never get another opportunity. Randy said he will beat him. Randy said Sheamus has never beaten him but if he wants to redeem himself for last week he can do something about it. Michael Cole got an email saying that Sheamus’ title matches in the past have had lots of run ins and if anyone tries that this on Sunday they will be suspended.
