Drew McIntyre & Rk-Bro blindside The Bloodline
Kevin Owens & Alpha Academy def. Ezekiel & The Street Profits
Ezekiel joined The Street Profits for a backstage party, but Kevin Owens & Alpha Academy rolled in looking for a fight. The new teammates carried that celebration into the ring, as Ezekiel rocked the ring with a suplex of Chad Gable. With the referee distracted, KO would seize his moment and trip up Elias’ younger brother to allow Master Gable to pull out a roll-up victory.
Veer Mahaan def. Bart Hansen
The path of destruction continued for Veer Mahaan as another local competitor met the same fate as those before him. Veer put on a powerful display and then locked the unsuspecting Burt Hansen into a crushing Cervical Clutch that forced the tapout and led to a post-match beatdown.
AJ Styles def. Damian Priest (Damian Priest now barred from ringside at WrestleMania Backlash)
The Phenomenal One had the Greensboro Coliseum chanting his name and stared down Judgment Day once again. Damian Priest would go on to target the shoulder of AJ Styles with a brutal drive into the ring post. A South of Heaven from the Judgment Day disciple nearly took down Styles, but The Phenomenal One clawed back for a roll-up win to bar Damian Priest from ringside at WrestleMania Backlash. An incensed Edge would run into the ring to lead an attack, but Finn Bálor rushed in to even up the odds.
The Miz & Theory def. Mustafa Ali - 2-on-1 Handicap Match
As Mustafa Ali tried his best to get a word in edgewise, Theory found it in the kindness of his heart to grant a Championship Contenders Match to the “Miz TV” guest. The catch - Ali would have to battle both The Miz and Theory in a 2-on-1 Handicap Match. Mustafa Ali did his best to put up a fight, but the evil alliance of The A-Lister and the United States Champion set up a Skull Crushing Finale. The punishment wasn’t over for Ali who suffered another blindside assault at the hands of Ciampa following the pin.

Bianca Belair, Liv Morgan & Asuka def. Becky Lynch, Rhea Ripley & Sonya Deville
There were plenty of scores to settled, as Bianca Belair, Liv Morgan & Asuka took on Becky Lynch, Rhea Ripley & Sonya Deville in a Six-Woman Tag Team Match. A hip attack by Asuka led Deville into a flying knee from Morgan that showed the seasoning of a long-time tandem. As Deville tried to flex her muscles as a WWE Official later in the match, the referee would not oblige and an Oblivion gave Morgan a massive moment in the Raw Women’s Title picture.
