We take a look at Del Rio’s attack on Sin Cara as Ricardo introduces his boss. Del Rio grabs a mic and says he’s not here to celebrate America. He’s going to talk about something much more important – himself. He says he understand why everyone loves Sheamus – because he’s a hooligan just like the people here. He then talks about being here legally before walking along the guard rail asking to see a few people’s papers. He finds someone who appears to be an illegal alien and calls security, but the person says this isn’t Arizona, this is Texas.
Out comes Sheamus and a brawl erupts between him and Del Rio. Ricardo eventually distracts Sheamus, allowing Del Rio to kick him in the head, put him on the hood of his car and slam the hood on his back repeatedly. Del Rio taunts Sheamus as he’s down.

Cole’s interview with AJ is next
Cole brings AJ out to the ring and asks her what she was thinking when she put both Bryan and Punk through the table. She says a lot of people have asked her that. Cole says she wasn’t thinking. She’s just a troubled little girl living out the tug of war fantasy and the BoD made a huge mistake by making her the special ref at MITB. He asks her if she ever thought about pursuing a real man like him and starts flirting with her.
Out comes Bryan starts defending AJ and calling Cole out for putting words in people’s mouth. He backs him into the ropes and tells AJ she’ll do a wonderful job as the ref. He also forgives her for last night and knows that she only intended for Punk to go through the table.
Out comes Punk and makes Cole get out of the ring. He says that unlike Daniel Bryan, he’s not going to kiss up to her for favorable officiating. He’s going to tell her like it is – she’s not in a good place mentally. He apologizes for contributing to it, but she needs proffesional help. Punk is worried about her because she’s a sweet girl. Bryan says Punk is pretending to care about AJ. They almost start fighting but AJ gets between them and kisses Bryan on the lips. Punk goes out of the ring, but AJ stops him and kisses him too.
