William Regal then comes to the ring for his first defence as United States Champion. He takes a mic and talks about Benoit and Guerrero being the worst professionals in the business.

Eddy hit’s the frog splash, and then Benoit applies the cross face.
We return with Regal complaining to Bret about what just happened to him. Sarcastically, Bret agrees. He says Regal should have a chance to get revenge on both men. Regal agrees. Bret then says that at SummerSlam, William Regal will defend his U.S Title in a triple threat match, against Guerrero and Benoit. Regal is irate, and says that its not fair. Hart walks away laughing as Regal goes mad.
Backstage, Rey Mysterio is joking around with Hurricane. Kanyon enters. He asks Rey why he is laughing when his match is up next. Rey tells him to relax. Kanyon then tells Rey that he shouldn’t treat his belt like a piece of crap. He walks off as Hurricane asks Rey, “What his problem?”

John Cena comes to the ring. He talks about all the hell he has been through over the last two months. From 3 on 1 matches, to screw jobs, to last week in the Gauntlet Match. He says it will all be worth it as now he has what he wants, a match with Brock Lesnar, when he wants it, where he wants it. He talks about when it should be. Next Week - Nah! Two Weeks - Nah! Summer Slam - HELL YEAH!! He says that at SummerSlam John Cena is gonna do what he has been waiting to do for a long time, - beat the hell out of Brock Lesnar. Then Mr. McMahon enters. He says that saying as Cena is so pumped up for his match at SummerSlam, he is going to make it a No Holds Barred match. And saying as he is so full of energy, he can have a match right now, against……The BIG SHOW!!!
John Cena vs. Big Show
Finish: After 12 gruelling minutes, Cena hits an FU on Big Show. He goes for the cover, but Lesnar runs to the ring and pulls out the referee. He punches the referee, and then plants Cena with an F5.

Brock Lesnar w/ Paul Heyman vs. Goldberg
Finish: In another physical encounter between the two monsters, Goldberg kicks out of an F5, and then hit’s the spear on Heyman. He hit’s a Jackhammer on Lesnar and impressively wins the match. He stands tall in the ring. Lesnar meanwhile, gets back up and hits an F5 on Goldberg. He then calls down Big Show. Heyman joins in and all three attack Goldberg. Kurt Angle then runs to the ring and clears house. He helps up Goldberg who then pushes Angle away. He walks away as the show ends with Angle looking puzzled in the ring.
