Sheamus def. Kofi Kingston
Prior to Kofi Kingston’s SmackDown match against Sheamus, The New Day described the many ways in which “The League of Booty” is actually “hot garbage.”

In spite of an incredible offense by Kingston in the contest that followed — which included leaping over the top rope to hit Sheamus with a gravity defying summersault plunge on the ringside floor — The League ultimately walked away with the singles victory.
Just when it looked as if Kingston might pick up the win, Rusev reached in and placed his comrade’s foot on the ropes. This drew the ire of The New Day, who chased The Bulgarian Brute up the ramp. But in doing so, they left King Barratt free to distract The Dreadlock Dynamo, allowing Sheamus to blast his opponent with the Brogue Kick for the three-count.
