Erick Rowan def. Matt Hardy
Erick Rowan has made whatever’s in his pen a key part of his mystique over the last few months, but the thing in the cage seems hesitant to show itself. When Rowan attempted to reveal it to Matt Hardy during their match, the thing bit him again, causing Rowan to slam the cage angrily on the ring steps. He pinned Hardy seconds later with the Iron Claw, then returned, seemingly contrite, to the pen, in the hopes of cooling things down. Whatever’s in there, given its volatile temper, it clearly takes after its ... friend? Owner? Master? Enemy? All of the above? All possibilities are on the table.
