The Judgment Day def. Alpha Academy
With the Judgment Day having already competed in two grueling matches, their resolve was wearing thin. Alpha Academy looked to take advantage of this, and they nearly did so after Otis hit a Caterpillar on Priest.

Before the match, WWE Official Adam Pearce announced that Dominik Mysterio would take the place of Finn Bálor after Otis had damaged The Prince’s ribs.

The Street Profits succumbed to The Judgment Day as Dominik rolled up Dawkins for the huge victory.
