With Viking shields, flags, tables and more used in the melee, Kingston launched the Viking Raider through the table after he grabbed his beard. With the match breaking down, Valhalla leaped onto Kingston until Xavier Woods came down to make the save.
Despite this, Woods got squished by an Ivar splash onto the barricade. Back in the ring, Ivar intercepted a Trouble in Paradise to send Kingston crashing through the table. Ivar’s picture-perfect moonsault then sealed the win.

Nox started the match aggressively, honing in on The Man’s stitched-up arm. Nox kept up the fire, beautifully countering Lynch’s Dis-arm-her attempt by rocking her into the turnbuckle.
Nox even had Lynch’s own maneuver scouted, locking in a Dis-arm-her of her own, but The Man struck back with some kicks and a missile dropkick.
Eventually, The Man succeeded in applying the Dis-arm-her on Nox, forcing The Girl with the Shiniest Wizard to submit.

The match would soon boil over as the tension exploded and a brawl broke out on the outside.
The animosity between KO and Uso, as well as Rhodes and Zayn reached a fever point with both sets of adversaries fighting by the announce desk.
A Cross Rhodes from The American Nightmare to Zayn almost sealed the deal, but KO came in at the last second to break up the pinfall. This was the norm for the rest of the match, as all four Superstars kept their teams alive with counters, reversal and pinfall breakups.
Rhodes and Uso retained their titles after a Cody Cutter/1-D combination that left KO down for the count.
