RK-Bro and The Usos set plans for tag team title unification clash
Rhea Ripley def. Naomi
The “Boss ‘n’ Glow” tandem have had a target on their backs since claiming the Women’s Tag Team Titles. Rhea Ripley & Liv Morgan have their hearts set on championship gold, and The Nightmare came out aggressively as a headbutt and Northern Lights suplex combo nearly resulted in the pin. An acrobatic kick off the ropes from The GLOW nearly knocked Ripley out of the match, but Ripley landed a Riptide to seal the victory and send an emphatic message from the challengers ahead of Monday’s tag team title clash.
Madcap Moss def. Humberto
Despite his split with Happy Corbin, Madcap Moss was still dishing out jokes and his posterior for the Los Lotharios kiss cam. Humberto took exception and came out throwing fists, but Moss unleashed a shoulder tackle that sent the handsome Superstar spinning through the air. Angel tried his best to turn the tables, but Madcap responded with a Punchline that left Los Lotharios out of laughs.

Drew McIntyre def. Sami Zayn via Count-out
Sami Zayn ran for the hills last week but couldn’t hide after the opening bell this week, as Drew McIntyre smashed him in between the apron and the barricades on the outside. The Master Strategist tried to find refuge behind Pat McAfee and ran into the stands for another count-out loss, as The Scottish Warrior came charging up the stairs behind him.
Ricochet def. Jinder Mahal in an Intercontinental Title Match
Ricochet defied the odds against Los Lotharios in his last title defense and now faced the imposing Jinder Mahl with Shanky lurking on the outside. The Modern Day Maharaja set out to overpower the champion, but the high-flyer wiped out the challenger and his associate with a crossbody on the outside. A breathtaking Shooting Star provided the exclamation point on another jaw-dropping Intercontinental Title retention for Ricochet.
Riddle def. Jimmy Uso
After announcing their Winner Take All Title Unification Match earlier in the night, both championship tandems were looking for a big win in the showdown between Riddle and Jimmy Uso. Jimmy landed the first major strike with a thunderous superkick that sent The Original Bro flying over the barricade. As Jey kept looking for opportunities to get involved, The Viper struck and planted him right through the announce table. With Jimmy momentarily distracted, Riddle regrouped and countered with an incredible match-clinching RKO that caused the WWE Universe to erupt.
