Rey Mysterio vs Samoa Joe
Zelina Vega came out before the match started and talked some trash to Rey. She asked him if she distracted him last week just as Andrade jumped Mysterio from behind. Then he hit the Three Amigos suplexes just like Eddie.
He didn’t get the third Amigo off because Rey fought back, but Andrade took control and beat him down. Oh yeah, Andrade was in a three-piece suit and kept it looking crisp the entire time. I think that’s important to mention so I did.
So, Mysterio vs Joe didn’t happen.

Rusev told Anderson to go back to catering and he can take his tall friend (Gallows) with him. Then The Good Brothers challenged Rusev and Nakamura to a match.
Rusev looked at Shinsuke and said he will only tag with him one time. Let’s just see about that.
