– Mustafa Ali pinned Lince Dorada with an inverted 450 splash.
– Drew Gulak & Tony Nese went to an apparent no contest against Hideo Itami & Akira Tozawa.

– The Miz left the Barclays Center and appeared in front of the crowd at The Manhattan Center sometime after the APA poker segment. The Miz cut a promo saying that he’s going to make the Intercontinental title relevant again. He would go on to say that he’s going to win the Royal Rumble and headline WrestleMania as the Intercontinental Champion.

– The Miz came back out again and cut a promo on The Balor Club and DX. He called himself the only champion in the building and the rest were all former champs. Seth Rollins came out and the two had an exchange before Rollins hit him with the curb stomp. Everyone started chanting “suck it.”
– Triple H came out and thanked the fans for 25 years and for coming back to where RAW originated.
