Seth praises the crowd for their reactions. He says the last month has been wild. He takes everyone back to Wrestlemania where he wins the Intercontinental Championship. Then they go to South Africa where he defends the title. They come back to St. Louis and then go to Saudi Arabia where he defended the title in a ladder match.
Seth says merci to the people of Montreal. Seth says the crowd makes it all worthwhile. He says the trip back from Saudi Arabia was long and it allowed him to think about what kind of champion he wants to be. He does not want to be anything like Brock Lesnar. Brock isn’t even the legitimate Universal Champion because we saw Roman’s feet hit first. Seth says he does not want to show up only when it is convenient or when the price is right. He wants to be a fighting champion . . .
Finn Balor’s music plays and interrupts Seth.
Finn introduces himself in French. He tells Seth he was right. It was a long flight from Saudi Arabia and it gave him time to watch the end of the ladder match and see how close he came to being Intercontinental champion. Finn says that Seth beat him, but by this much. They have had four singles matches and each of them have won two. That makes them even. You talk about being a fighting champion so why not show you are a fighting champion by putting that title on the line tonight?
Seth says he has the Miz at Backlash on Sunday, but . . .
Finn says he likes that but.
Seth says since he is a fighting champion, he will leave it up to the people of Montreal.
Seth says he is on and then . . .
Miz’ music plays and Curtis Axel and Bo Dallas make their way to the stage.
Curtis says not to worry about what these people want. Worry about what is best for yourselves. You guys shouldn’t be fighting each other, you should be fighting together. Bo says we should all be fighting together.
Curtis says they made a mistake by coming at them separately. They should have had a group conversation and then Bo and Curtis reveal shirts with all four of their photos on it.
Bo says forget about the Balor Club and forget about the Shield. Bo says they have the Four Horsemen of the WWE.
Bo and Curtis put up the four fingers.
Seth and Finn have a conversation away from Bo and Curtis. Seth says it is a hard no.
Bo tells Curtis to keep his chin up. Bo says they don’t need them. Bo and Curtis turn away and then try to attack Finn and Seth but Seth with a super kick to Bo and Finn with a Slingblade to Curtis. Rollins clotheslines Axel over the top rope to the floor.
Balor takes care of Rollins with an elevated elbow drop to the chest.
