Rey Mysterio def. Otis
With the Alpha Academy-trained Otis continuing to be a painful thorn in the side of the Mysterio family, Rey Mysterio aimed to set an example for his son Dominik against The Blue-Collar Brawler. After hitting the 619 in the final moments, Mysterio leaped at Otis from the ropes, spun around him and used his own leverage to drop and pin his gigantic opponent.

Cesaro def. Jey Uso by Disqualification
