He bragged about finally getting his one-on-one match with Sheamus and said he’ll send him back to Ireland crying like a little girl. He said Sheamus is just like everyone who likes him – a peasant and a hooligan, someone who takes advantage of hard-working people like himself. Del Rio went to ringside to taunt the fans, asking them to show him his papers. He went to another guy asking the same thing. He vowed to get rid of one of the fans before he gets rid of Sheamus. He told security to come out and get rid of the plant. The person said this wasn’t Arizona, but Texas., Sheamus came out. He pushed Rodriguez aside and went after Del Rio, brawling with him on the ramp. Del Rio was tossed to the side of the ramp and continued the assault on Del Rio.

Cole said the Board of Directors made a huge mistake naming her special ref for the WWE Title match. Cole called A.J. “a troubled little girl.” Cole said A.J. is living out a fantasy and said he doesn’t understand what she sees in Daniel Bryan, Kane, or C.M. Punk. He asked her if she has considered going after a real man, a man of power and influence, perhaps a former war correspondent.  Daniel Bryan came out and called Cole a sexist. He said he knows A.J. will call it down the middle at the PPV and that A.J. really only meant to put Punk through the table on Raw. C.M. Punk’s  came out. Punk told Cole to get out of the ring.Punk said he wanted to be honest with A.J., saying she isn’t in a good place mentally.
