Corbin slides out of the ring, and then he slides right back in to nearly decapitate Zayn with a clothesline. Corbin hits a chokeslam into a backbreaker, but Zayn kicks out at two. The Lone Wolf is starting to look frustrated as he sits Sami on the top turnbuckle. Zayn turns it into a sunset flip powerbomb for a two count of his own. Baron counters a tornado DDT and an exploder suplex before he drops Zayn with Deep Six for a near fall.
Corbin gets frustrated and starts kicking away at Sami as he lays across the bottom rope. The referee considers stopping the match as Sami can’t defend himself. Sami climbs to his feet and yanks down the top rope to send Corbin flying to the outside. Corbin rushes back inside and Zayn kicks him in the face and Corbin stumbles to the corner. Zayn hits a quick Helluva Kick out of nowhere and gets the win!
