Owens begins by announcing that considering who his first guest is, he should probably remove the chairs from inside the ring. Owens then throws all three out, breaking two. He says his guest isn’t one you’d expect to see on the KO show, but nevertheless, he has a reason for wanting him out there.

Rollins notes that Rey Mysterio is now medically cleared to compete. He goes on to state that he wants a match with Mysterio at Extreme Rules.
Rollins then flips the script on Kevin Owens, speaking on Wrestlemania and how Owens has been on the shelf with an injury. Rollins says Owens needs Rollins more than he thinks he does. “I think you might get more out of fighting with me, than against me.”
“Maybe you should find a purpose in your fighting, Kevin. Maybe you should fight for the greater good.” Kevin looks down, seemingly pondering the request.
Rey Mysterio w/ Dominick
Rey Mysterio’s music sounds and Mysterio comes out with a microphone in hand and his son Dominick by his side. Mysterio tells Owens not to believe the crap coming from Rollins, then adds he accepts the match with Rollins.

Riott calls the two dumbasses. Riott says she doesn’t know where Liv is, but that isn’t her focus, her focus is on those two which is very bad for them. It isn’t going to be “iiconic” it’s going to be “tragic”. Riott walks off.
