Just 48 hours away from Extreme Rules, the unpredictable Dean Ambrose found himself on the receiving end of an unfair edict from The Authority as he was forced to defend his United States Championship against Alberto Del Rio, Ryback and Curtis Axel.

Daniel Bryan appeared on this week's broadcast to discuss his WWE World Heavyweight Championship defense against Kane. He addressed the attacks he has suffered at the hands of the Big Red Monster and changed his tone when discussing the events of Monday night and the involvement of his wife, Brie.

In preparation for his steel cage match with John Cena Sunday night, Bray Wyatt teamed with Luke Harper and Erick Rowan to take on Sheamus and the Usos in an extremely competitive six-man tag match.
