Samoa Joe vs Kevin Owens
Before this match started it was announced that Elias is the special guest enforcer for the match. Out came Elias in a referee shirt.
Joe took the offense to Owens to start off the match, but Kevin came back with a clothesline. Then Joe went out side and Elias got in his way. The story here is that Owens can’t hit Elias as a referee because he doesn’t want another fine.
Kevin Owens fired back with a dropkick from the top rope on Joe before hitting a senton and he got a two count. Then Joe regained control of the match and they went to the top rope where Joe tried to superplex Owens, but KO fought back and he hit a senton off the top rope instead.
Joe avoided a Stunner and then Owens hit a pop up powerbomb. Elias pulled the real referee out of the ring and then he got in the ring as Joe rolled KO up and Elias counted an incredibly fast three count for the win.
Winner: Samoa Joe
Daniel Bryan and Rowan walked to the dressing room and told everyone to get out except for Buddy Murphy. This is becoming a trend.
They sat Murphy down and they told him that they know he lied, they understand why he lied, he just needs to admit how he lied. Daniel Bryan got right up in Buddy’s face screaming to tell everybody that he lied.
Murphy cracked a smile and Rowan beat the living crap out of him. A table was taken out in the process. Then Rowan held Murphy against the wall while Bryan screamed at him telling him to admit that he lied.
“I lied! I lied!” Murphy screamed and then Rowan let him go. Then Rowan roughed him up again for good measure after Bryan said, “Man I really just hate liars.”
New Day vs The Revival
Randy Orton came out and he cut a promo on Kofi about how Kingston can’t beat him. He said Kofi wasn’t ready then and he’s not ready now. He ran away from a fight at Summerslam in front of his family. Then he said one day his kids will ask him why he ran away from “that big bad scary man” and he will look them in the eyes and say “I can’t beat Randy Orton.”
Then Orton suggested he and Kofi join in. Okay, that sounded good.
