Cena cuts a promo on the Last Man Standing match against Bray Wyatt at Payback. Cena insinuates that Wyatt has no balls. Cena sings, “I’ve got no pearls in my pants” to mock Bray. He accepts the challenge for Payback. Cena issues an open challenge and says he will face anyone that Bray chooses tonight. Bray appears on the big screen and cuts a promo.
* A Bo Dallas vignette airs.

* Los Matadores and El Torito are out. 3MB is out with Hornswoggle. Heath Slater vs. El Torito is next. Torito wins what was described as a lame comedy match.
* Natalya vs. Nikki Bella is next with Eva Marie as the special referee. Our correspondent says Eva can’t ref any better than she can wrestle. Nikki got the win after what was described as a botchfest.
