3. Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville vs Sasha Banks and Bayley
Winner: Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville.
The bitter-sweet relationship of Sasha and Bayley continues, let’s see where this feud goes.
– John Cena segment. This was another excellent promo with a tiny heelish salt sprinkled all over it. He says that he wants to know the answer from The Undertaker. He wants to know if it’s a yes, or a no. He says that he’s disrespecting everyone without giving any response. Cena leads to a “Do something” chant. And all of a sudden, Kane appears. Cena asks if he has any message from his brother. But Kane simply chokeslammed Cena and then left the ring. Later on, it is announced that Kane will go one on one with Cena in the next episode of Raw.
4. Bálor Club vs The Miz Touareg.
The Miz accompanied by Curtis Axel and Bo Dallas came to the ring. He gave a fiery promo and he even mentioned the real (indy) names of Finn Balor and Seth Rollins.
Finally, The Balor club came and the match began, with Seth being in the commentary.
Winner: Bálor Club
After the match, the Miz Touareg started attacking Balor, when Seth Rollins came to clear the ring.
5. Ultimate Deletion: Matt Hardy vs Bray Wyatt.
Winner: Woken Matt Hardy.
This is quite an interesting and entertaining match. It wasn’t as serious as it’s TNA counterpart, but still, it was good on it’s own. And the best part was to see the return of Brother Nero (Jeff Hardy). Matt declared that Bray Wyatt was now, deleted. Moreover, Bray Wyatt’s carcass was thrown into the Lake of Reincarnation.
