Finn Bálor def. AJ Styles
Damian Priest and Damian Priest of The Judgment Day got themselves removed from ringside for causing a disruption. As the official was ordering them out, Jimmy Uso suddenly emerged from nowhere and leaped up on the apron. This caused a distraction that paved the way for The Prince to roll up The Phenomenal One for the quick pin.
Rey Mysterio agreed to grant The LWO's Santos Escobar a United States Title opportunity. The LWO then got interrupted by Bobby Lashley and The Street Profits.
The Street Profits def. Cruz Del Toro & Joaquin Wilde
In an impromptu tag team showdown, The Street Profits overcame The LWO’s Cruz Del Toro & Joaquin Wilde with the Revelation.
Seconds after the match, Bobby Lashley joined Angelo Dawkins and Montez Ford in a nefarious post-match assault on the proud Latino faction.
LA Knight def. The Miz
In a hard-fought rematch, the outspoken LA Knight conquered The A-Lister with an earth-shattering B.F.T. Then, as the dust cleared, Knight picked up the mic and put out a bold challenge to every champion in WWE.
Asuka def. Bayley
In the final moments of Bayley's showdown against Asuka, Shotzi popped out of the crowd and spooked The Role Model. The distraction completely threw Bayley off her game and allowed The Empress of Tomorrow to hook in the backslide for the quick victory.
It was an enormous win for Asuka heading into next week's title opportunely against WWE Women’s Champion IYO SKY.
Solo Sikoa emerged to help Jimmy Uso launch a 2-on-1 attack on John Cena. AJ Styles charged the ring to help Cena repel the onslaught.
