Highlights of the match included Lashley quickly tagging out of the contest to avoid locking up with Bálor (after Lashley, Drew McIntyre and Baron Corbin ruthlessly beat down Finn on Monday Night Raw), Mickie unleashing a furious early offense on Bayley, a highly personal beatdown being administered by Bálor on Lashley, Lashley turning the tables on Finn by hurling him off the apron and into the announce table, Bálor taking advantage of Lashley’s showboating outside the ring, Mickie pulling the rug out from under Bayley to deny her opponent the tag, Lashley missing the charge on Finn and flying into the ring post and Bayley tagging in and igniting a fierce brawl with Mickie.
When Lio Rush tripped up Bayley in the final moments, Finn was quick to get payback, taking out Lashley and Rush in retaliation outside the ring and clearing the way for Bayley to hit Bayley-to-Belly for the huge win.
Next week, the MMC Playoffs will continue with R-Truth & Carmella against Jeff Hardy and Charlotte Flair in a Quarterfinals Match.
