Back live with LA Knight in the ring, the crowd boos him which angers me, Knight calls the crowd puppets and calls out Bray Wyatt, saying he has struck fear into Wyatt. Knight says that he’s calling Wyatt’s bluff that it wasn’t him and Knight shows footage on the titantron. Knight points out footage of a mysterious masked figure in the background on multiple incidents of Knight being attacked. The footage glitches out and it turns into a video package with rapidly cut footage of various spooky related things and the occasional straight up picture and video of Wyatt himself. Knight says he’s seen all he needs to and he drops the mic and runs to the back.
Legado Del Fantasma vs The Viking Raiders
The match begins with Erik hitting Wilde with a shoulder tackle. Ivar tags in and hits a corner spear before tagging Erik back in who goes for a pop up powerbomb but Wilde counters with a huricanrana.

Top Dolla and Ashante run in with chairs to take out The Viking Raiders and end the match in a no contest. Valhalla runs in and B-Fab runs in to hit a superkick. The segment ends with Hit Row standing tall in the ring.
We cut to LA Knight walking through the halls of the backstage area. Knight opens a door into his locker room where he finds a Bray Wyatt shirt hanging up. The lights cut out and Knight turns to see a masked figure standing there as we cut to commercial.
Back live with SmackDown World Cup winner Ricochet making his entrance. After Ricochet’s entrance Imperium make their entrance as we prepare for Gunther nd Ricochet to sign the contract for their upcoming Intercontinental Championship match.
WWE Official Adam Pearce is in the ring to make the contract signing official. Pearce is cut off on the mic by The New Day making their entrance. Woods apologizes for interrupting Pearce. Kingston says they know how contract signings goes, Gunther is going to get mad and all of Imperium is going to try and attack Ricochet but they won’t have any of that. Woods says they are here to support Ricochet. Gunther grabs the mic and tells Ricochet he took the title from him and he has beaten him before to prove he is unworthy of the Intercontinental title, Gunther says Imperium respects the sport and are professional wrestlers, not performers. Woods hears this and spins it into an “Imperium can’t perform” chant while letting Gunther know “there are pills for that” (I’ll take a sponsorship for whoever wants me to plug their pill). Eventually everything breaks down as Pearce calls out a ref and makes an impromptu six man tag match as Teddy Long holla hollas proudly from his living room.
