The margin of error could not have been tighter for this encounter as Carmella could win the Raw Women’s Championship via pinfall, submission or count out.
A perennial thorn in the side of The EST of WWE, Becky Lynch made her presence felt before the match laying out the champion with a Manhandle Slam. Lynch scouted her competition from the announce table, as it was announced that the winner would face her at SummerSlam for the Raw Women’s Championship.
Belair had to battle to get back inside the ring on multiple occasions but in the end Belair stayed ready and put Carmella away with the K.O.D.
After the match, Big Time Becks picked up the Raw Women’s title, lifting it high in the air before dropping it on the floor at the feet of the reigning champion.

Damian Priest def. Rey Mysterio; Judgment Day forced Dominik Mysterio to join them
One week before Rey Mysterio’s 20th Anniversary Celebration, The Master of the 619 contended with Damian Priest in another battle in the Mysterio’s war against The Judgment Day.
Mysterio gave it his all but The Archer of Infamy was too much, getting the victory with a Razor’s Edge.
The drama continued after the match as The Judgment Day held Rey Mysterio in a con-chair-to position as his son Dominik was forced to choose between either joining The Judgment Day or watch his father succumb to the vicious maneuver. Dominik had no choice but to surrender to the nefarious group, but The Judgment Day did not believe his admission and left both Dominik and Rey reeling in the ring.
Seth “Freakin” Rollins def. Ezekiel
Ezekiel was ‘Zeked’ up after Rollins had ambushed and stomped Riddle earlier in the evening and wanted to teach him a lesson in respect.

After a series of reversals, Rollins would close out the clash by Stomping Elias' younger brother just like he did to Riddle.

The Street Profits def. Omos & MVP by disqualification
After having lost to Angelo Dawkins by Disqualification, Omos was irate and understandably so. WWE Official Adam Pearce came up with a solution and ordered The Street Profits and Omos & MVP to engage in a tag team showdown.
MVP in suit and all, kicked it old school hitting the Ballin’ Elbow Drop onto Dawkins. Dawkins would then take out MVP by throwing him into the Usos who were ringside.
After Montez Ford hit a huge splash on Omos for a one count, the Usos interfered. The match was called off immediately with the Profits winning by disqualification.
The Usos assault on the Street Profits was relentless with the reigning Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions delivering a Superkick to both Ford and Dawkins. The Usos barrage would end when they fed Ford to the ravenous Omos who planted both Profits with a Double Chokeslam.
