Solo Sikoa def. Matt Riddle in a No Disqualification Match
A brutal No Disqualification Match between Matt Riddle and Solo Sikoa incorporated steel chairs, the ring post, Kendo sticks, and the steel ring steps. In a critical moment, The Original Bro got payback on The Enforcer of The Bloodline by overturning the announce table on top of him. At the moment, however, The Usos struck with a 2-on-1 attack on Riddle and gave Solo time to recoup. Solo struck last and took down Riddle with the Samoan Spike for the victory.
After the bell, The Usos added insult to injury when they smashed their war-torn adversary through the table with One and Done.
