Big E def. Apollo Crews ended by Disqualification
Moments after Big E hit the Big Ending on Apollo Crews, Commander Azeez prevented the title-changing pin fall when he pulled The Powerhouse of Positivity out of the ring and hurled him into the ring post to bring an abrupt end to the highly anticipated Intercontinental Title rematch.
This soon brought Kevin Owens into the equation to get retribution from the beat down he suffered last week, until Sami Zayn entered the fray as well and ultimately helped create a numbers advantage that would leave both KO and the reengaging Big E on the canvas.
When Zayn held onto the Intercontinental Title a little too long and attempted to befriend Crews and Azeez, the Intercontinental Champion’s royal bodyguard blasted him with the Nigerian Nail.
