As Erik was unable to be medically cleared, Kofi Kingston took on Ivar in lieu of the 2-out-of-3 Falls Match that was originally scheduled.

Drew McIntyre def. Jey Uso
Competing in his first main event on Raw since coming over from SmackDown, Jey Uso took on Drew McIntyre, a man who is not a fan of the former Bloodline member.
Compounding issues for Jey was the ultimatum given to him by The Judgment Day as they needed an answer by the end of the night as to whether or not he would join their fold.
As the two fan favorites battled, The Judgment Day sauntered their way down to ringside, appearing to cheer on Uso.
With Damian Priest continuing to prod Jey Uso into joining them, Uso gave them his answer: a resounding “no!” as he superkicked all three members of The Judgment Day who were ringside.
Unfortunately for Jey, the fracas allowed McIntyre to recover and hit a huge Claymore to earn the victory.
