    As you might have heard before, tonight is all about Roman Reigns, who is going to be announcing what he wants to do at August's Summerslam. While this is likely wanting a World Title shot, I'd be stunned if it didn't actually end with Braun Strowman interrupting and getting the match with Reigns at Great Balls of Fire instead. Let's get to it.

    Here's Roman Reigns to open things up. Roman says the fans won't like to hear this, but he can't be beaten one on one. Ask Bray Wyatt, Finn Balor, Seth Rollins and Braun Strowman. Oh and remember he main evented his third Wrestlemania in a row, where he retired the Undertaker. Reigns doesn't care who he faces but he's getting the Universal Title shot at Summerslam.

    This brings out Samoa Joe to say he didn't hear his name mentioned on that list of people Reigns has beaten. Joe introduces himself but Reigns says he agrees with Paul Heyman: Joe will never be Samoa Joe, but rather Just Joe. As in the guy that Brooklyn Brawler beat clean once? The fight is on with Joe being Superman Punched to the floor. This was VERY heelish from Reigns, especially the main eventing Wrestlemania line.

    Hardys vs. Anderson and Gallows

    The brothers take turns on Gallows' arm and Poetry in Motion gets two. Jeff gets sent hard into the corner though and we take an early break. Back with Jeff getting kicked in the face and armbarred. Jeff kicks Anderson away but Gallows is right there to break up the hot tag attempt.

    The hog tag works a few seconds later and it's Matt coming in to clean house. Everything breaks down with Anderson rolling Matt up for two. A right hand to Matt's jaw sets up the Boot of Doom for a close two, leaving Jeff to dropkick Anderson. The Twist of Fate into the Swanton gives Jeff the pin at 10:31.

    Goldust challenges R-Truth for next week.

    Here's Elias Samson to tune his guitar but it's Finn Balor making a quick interruption for his match.

    Finn Balor vs. Bo Dallas

    Dallas jumps him before the bell and chokes away on the ropes, followed by a running knee to the head for two. Balor comes back with the Pele and a series of strikes, including the kick from the apron. Dallas is sent hard into the barricade a few times and it's the Sling Blade into the Coup de Grace for the pin at 3:40.

    Corey Graves has to run off and deal with something.

    Video on Seth Rollins being the cover star for WWE2K18.

    The announcers discuss Carmella winning the Money in the Bank briefcase with help from James Ellsworth.

    Corey comes in to see Kurt Angle and says he knows he had a bad Father's Day. Angle looks taken aback but Graves says he got the same message. Enzo and Big Cass come in with Angle wanting to know why Enzo tweeted something to Conor McGregor. That goes nowhere so they talk about who has been attacking Enzo and Cass. It might have been Revival, Enzo himself or Big Show. Angle promises to find out who did it tonight.

    Here's Seth Rollins to talk about being on the cover of the game. He brings up his heel turn from a few years back and everything it brought him. The problem was he couldn't look in the mirror. Now he's on the cover of the game and it's his second chance. This cover belongs to both himself and the fans because it's THEIR cover.

    Cue Bray Wyatt to talk about how he feels the struggle in Seth's soul. Seth is still conforming to whatever the people want and he's just not that man. Rollins says he's THE man and lists off some accomplishments. Bray says he's here and blows out the lantern before coming out to the ring. Thankfully Seth is smart enough to dive on Bray as he walks very slowly to the ring.

    Graves praises Angle's job as GM and stands by him during his personal issues.

    Balor wants the Universal Title back and thinks Roman is tough enough to take down Joe tonight. Samson jumps Balor from behind and tells him to never upstage him again. D-Von Dudley (an agent if that wasn't clear) chases Samson off.

    Akira Tozawa vs. TJP

    Rematch from 205 Live. Hang on a second as Titus O'Neil comes out to say we need to really hype the match up, meaning he'll handle the introductions. TJP flips over Tozawa to start but gets rolled up for two. A top rope dive misses Tozawa again but the backsplash hits knees. Cue Neville to say neither of these two are the next Cruiserweight Champion as we take a break.

    Back with TJP keeping Tozawa on the mat, followed by the springboard forearm into the nipup. We hit an arm trap chinlock before Tozawa sends him to the floor for a suicide dive. Back in and TJP grabs a double chickenwing gutbuster but gets kicked in the face, setting up the top backsplash for the pin at 10:39.

    Post match Titus talks about how awesome his Brand is and how Tozawa will be the next Cruiserweight Champion. Neville is tired of hearing about it so Tozawa needs to tread lightly.

    R-Truth accepts Goldust's challenge.

    Curtis Axel tries to cheer Bo up when Miz comes in to talk about how bad they've been lately. They were in the Marine 5 together and Miz made them stars. He can do it again here on Raw.

    Samoa Joe thinks Reigns needs to learn his name because Joe beat him in his Raw debut.

    Samoa Joe vs. Roman Reigns

    They trade shoulders to start with no one going anywhere. Joe gets punched to the floor through and stays outside for a breather. Back in and Joe knocks him to the floor for a change, followed by a few headbutts with shouts of WHAT'S MY NAME. They head outside yet again with Reigns being sent into the post and barricade as we go to a break.

    Back with Joe dropping an elbow and grabbing a chinlock. A backsplash hits knees though (meaning ANOTHER crowd reaction shot, which have been on steroids tonight) and Reigns makes his comeback with the ten clotheslines in the corner. The Superman Punch is countered into an atomic drop into the boot, followed by a backsplash for two. Joe gets back up and eats a Superman Punch for two more but still manages to block the spear.

    There's the Rock Bottom for another near fall so Joe is tired of the messing around. The Koquina Clutch has Reigns in trouble but he backs into the corner and hits the spear to send Joe outside. Roman loads up another spear but he's an ambulance backing into the building. Naturally Braun Strowman is inside for one heck of a face pop and the distraction lets Joe grab the Koquina Clutch for the tap at 18:37.

    Post match Strowman comes out and gives Reigns a reverse chokeslam. Fans: “ONE MORE TIME!” Strowman challenges Reigns to an ambulance match at Great Balls of Fire pay per view. As opposed to Great Balls of Fire: a Spike Lee Joint.

    It's time for MizTV with Miz apologizing to Maryse. He has two bears and a big present for her, plus champagne. Maryse comes out with Miz guaranteeing her that he's checked the bears out and they're fine. The present is the restored grandfather clock, which he repaired in their garage when she made him sleep on the couch. Maryse seems to forgive him when Dean Ambrose comes out.

    Miz hides behind her, sending the champagne onto Maryse's face. Dean keeps going by sending Miz into the clock to break it again. That's enough for Maryse who slaps Miz and storms off, only to have the bears attack Ambrose. Naturally they're Dallas and Axel and the beatdown is on with Miz helping out via a Skull Crushing Finale.

    Sheamus/Cesaro vs. Apollo Crews/Titus O'Neil

    Non-title. Crews dropkicks Cesaro down to start but eats a right hand for his efforts. Apollo takes a bit of a beating in the corner until an enziguri drops Cesaro. Titus comes in and clotheslines Sheamus in the corner, followed by Apollo's standing moonsault for two. A cheap shot sets up the assisted White Noise to put Crews away at 4:11.

    Long video on Samoa Joe vs. Brock Lesnar with both guys talking about the amount of violence we'll be seeing at the pay per view. Good stuff.

    Sasha Banks vs. Nia Jax

    Alexa Bliss comes out for commentary and we're joined in progress with Banks hitting the knees to the back. Cue Emma to yell at Bliss and then chase her into the ring. Bliss hides behind Jax so Emma kicks her in the ribs for the DQ at 1:11.

    It's a big brawl with Mickie James and Dana Brooke coming in as well. Bayley finally comes in and really cleans house, including a middle rope bulldog to Jax. The good women, as in Bayley/Banks/Brooke/James in this case, stand tall.

    Here's Angle to announce the attacker. He brings out Enzo, Cass, Revival and Big Show to really set the stage. Angle starts with Big Show, who says he'd fight someone face to face. If Angle thinks he did it, maybe he doesn't need to be on Raw anymore. Show leaves and Cass is very happy until Kurt cuts him off to talk about Revival. Angle says it wasn't them because enough referees and agents saw the two of them elsewhere.

    Corey Graves says he has some information though. A few moments ago Cass said he had a golf ball sized lump on the back of his head, but the medical team said they never treated him. Cass starts backtracking but Graves has security footage. We see Cass staging the scene of the crime and laying on the ground like he's unconscious. Cass admits he did it and yells about how tired he is of Enzo running his mouth about whatever he's always talking about. No one behind the curtain likes Enzo and Cass felt bad for him.

    Cass finally snapped and it felt good to lay Enzo out from behind. He unloads on Enzo for all the years of having to put up with him and wanted to see how smart Enzo really was. It turns out that Enzo is even dumber than he looks and nothing but dead weight holding Cass down. All Enzo does is have his mouth write checks that he can't cash but now Cass isn't behind him anymore. Enzo gets kicked in the head to end the show.

    We're past Money in the Bank and there are two briefcases floating around the blue show. In addition to that, we also saw Jinder Mahal retain his Smackdown World Title when he defeated Randy Orton for the second time. There's a chance we'll be setting up a third match between the two as we head towards Battleground in just over a month. Let's get to it.

    We open with a quick recap of Carmella winning the first women's Money in the Bank ladder match with a big assist from James Ellsworth.

    The other participants from the women's ladder match are outside Daniel Bryan's door but he won't help them at the moment.

    Opening sequence.

    Here are Carmella and James Ellsworth to celebrate the win. Carmella addresses the controversy around her winning the briefcase and decides she doesn't care. She's tired of being overlooked compared to all of the other women when she's this great. There have been other issues like this over the years but all the little internet trolls got on their “Tweeter” to talk to Bryan. She won the briefcase fair and square and there's nothing anyone can do about it. This was a solid heel speech but you can tell they're setting up something for later tonight.

    Charlotte complains to Bryan and tells him to do the right thing.

    Big E. vs. Jimmy Uso

    Big E. isn't happy with the Usos leaving on Sunday, saying “the Usos dipped with those ships before we could put them around our hips.” We see some stills of the Usos bailing on the match before the Usos introduce us to the warden of the Usos Penitentiary: Deput E! Joined in progress with Jimmy in trouble and staying on the downed Big E. That doesn't last long though as Big E. powers up and throws Jimmy around like he's a power lifter and Jimmy is a small Samoan wrestler. The Usos tease walking out again but Kofi dives on Jey and Woods blocks Jimmy from escaping. Back in and the Big Ending puts Jimmy away at 3:19.

    Natalya and Tamina come into Daniel's office and suck up to him about being a new father. Tamina gets to the point and asks what he's going to do about Carmella. Daniel promises an answer by tonight.

    Naomi thinks Bryan will make the right decision and will face anyone she has to face. Lana comes in and asks what about her. There was interference that cost her the match so Lana wants a rematch. Naomi: “How thirsty are you?” Naomi agrees to a rematch next week.

    We look at some stills of Mahal beating Orton again.

    Earlier today, Orton sat down to talk about losing his cool on Sunday. He knows how the numbers game works and Mahal played it to perfection. Orton is ready to do whatever it takes to get his hands on Mahal again. Mahal disrespected his family so maybe Orton can go to India and hit RKO's on every member of the Mahal Family. Including his grandmother! That's a running trend for Orton and it's kind of disturbing.

    Dolph Ziggler vs. Shinsuke Nakamura

    The threats of some early kicks send Ziggler to the floor so he tries a more amateur style back inside. That's fine with Nakamura who sends him into the ropes and says bring it. More strikes stagger Ziggler but he sends Nakamura into the post and hits that good looking dropkick for two. A big toss out to the floor knocks Ziggler silly though and we take a break.

    Back with Nakamura fighting out of a chinlock and scoring with another kick to the head. Ziggler drops him again and mocks Nakamura's little dance, earning himself another series of kicks. The running knees in the corner connect for two but Ziggler kicks him in the knee and gets two off a very ugly Fameasser.

    Ziggler's superkick misses and Nakamura reverses into a triangle choke into a cross armbreaker until Ziggler rakes the eye. There's the Zig Zag for a close two and it's off to the sleeper. Nakamura finally rolls out of it and knees Dolph in the back of the head for a breather. Kinshasa finally puts Ziggler away at 16:49.

    Bryan is in the back with Sami Zayn, who gets to face Baron Corbin next week. Becky Lynch comes in and Sami offers his condolences on her loss, which he thought was unfair. As everyone else has done tonight, she asks Bryan to do something about this.

    Here's Kevin Owens for an open challenge and a chat. He didn't like what happened on Sunday because everyone conspired against him becoming Mr. Money in the Bank. This is the Land of Opportunity and tonight he's giving someone from Dayton, Ohio a chance to become the US Champion. Cue AJ Styles to say he'll take the title. Owens isn't cool with that because AJ isn't from Dayton. This brings out Chad Gable of all people, who says he just moved to Dayton this morning. He even has an address and we're ready to go.

    US Title: Chad Gable vs. Kevin Owens

    Gable is challenging and easily takes Owens to the mat a few times before an ankle lock sends Owens outside. We take a break less than forty five seconds in and come back with Gable getting superkicked for two. Another suplex drops Owens and a moonsault gives Gable two of his own. Not that it matters as the Pop Up Powerbomb is good for the pin to retain the title at 5:59. There wasn't enough shown to rate but Gable looked energetic in defeat.

    The Hype Bros are in Bryan's office and think they deserve the Tag Team Title shot that they earned back in December. Bryan says things have changed a bit so if they can beat the Usos next week, they can have a future title shot.

    Here's Bryan for his announcement on the ladder match. He brings out all of the participants in the ladder match, each with their own entrance. Bryan says that Carmella did follow the rules by being the first woman to retrieve the briefcase but it has never been done this way before. Therefore, we are in uncharted territory.

    Ellsworth thinks Bryan being the father of a vegan hippie baby has made him soft. The women get all catty with each other (duh) with Charlotte threatening to make Natalya look like Ellsworth if she doesn't shut up. Bryan cuts them off and says Carmella has to hand over the briefcase. Next week, there's going to be ANOTHER women's Money in the Bank ladder match with the same five participants. A brawl breaks out with Becky and Charlotte beating Carmella up.

    ARE YOU SERIOUS??? Let me make sure I have this straight: I sat through weeks of BUILDING MOMENTUM with WWE telling me that it didn't really matter and now we're doing the EXACT SAME MATCH just nine days later? I really have to go back and sit through the same thing that fast? Then what was the point of the pay per view version? After all that build and all that nonsense, they're just saying “eh do it again”? Oh and add to it another pay per view rematch for the Women's Title. They really are doing this same stuff over and over again and trying to act like it's not just a ratings ploy. This is stupid, even by WWE standards.

    Jinder Mahal vs. Luke Harper

    Non-title. Harper slugs away to start and dropkicks Jinder to the floor as we take another early break. Back with Mahal grabbing a chinlock until Harper fights up with something like a clothesline. A big boot and the sitout Boss Man Slam give Harper two but Jinder comes back with a superplex. Cue Baron Corbin with the briefcase....but he walks right back up the ramp with it and leaves. Harper gets in a superkick but has to swing at one of the brothers. The Khallas gives Mahal the pin at 9:40.

    Post match Orton comes out to clean house and hits the hanging DDT off the barricade. Mahal bails while Orton gives both Singhs an RKO (more like a Stunner to the second one) to end the show.

    Big E. b. Jimmy Uso – Big Ending
    Shinsuke Nakamura b. Dolph Ziggler – Kinshasa
    Kevin Owens b. Chad Gable – Pop Up Powerbomb
    Jinder Mahal b. Luke Harper – Khallas

    It's the last episode of a taping cycle and that means we have a major match to wrap things up as Aleister Black is facing Kassius Ohno in what could be one of the hardest hitting matches we've ever seen in NXT. If nothing else Black needs to get a win over a bigger name instead of just beating nobodies time after time. Let's get to it.

    Quick look at the main event.

    Opening sequence.

    Bobby Roode and Roderick Strong had a backstage altercation earlier today and we'll see it later.

    Ember Moon vs. Peyton Royce

    I rather enjoy Royce and Billie Kay's entrance but you can feel the pain coming from here. If nothing else I'm glad we get to hear Ember's awesome theme again. Ember sends her cowering into the corner to start and hits a running forearm to really take over. An early Eclipse attempt is broken up but Peyton can't hit a fisherman's superplex (that's a new one).

    Instead she sends Ember shoulder first into the post and we take a break. Back with Peyton elbowing the bad shoulder like she should be doing. Ember fights up with the good arm but handsprings into a spinning kick to the face. A headscissors staggers Peyton but the threat of an Eclipse makes Billie pull her to the floor. Ember dives onto Kay to take her out and grabs a crucifix for two. Something like a Widow's Peak (without grabbing the chin) gives Royce two of her own but Ember sends her face first into the buckle. The Eclipse (still looks great) is enough to put Peyton away at 9:01.

    Hideo Itami comes up to Ohno to kind of apologize for his recent actions. Ohno understands and thinks they should be good to go, but Itami needs to stick on the good side.

    Ealy Brothers vs. Sanity

    Eric Young and Alexander Wolfe this time. Gabriel and Wolfe start things off with the twin being taken down for an elbow drop from Young. Sanity stays on him with alternating beatings, including Wolfe letting Gabriel get close to his brother and then drag him right back. That's the kind of heel work I can always go for. A missed charge allows the hot tag off to Uriel, who cleans house for all of five seconds before getting caught in a belly to back suplex/middle rope neckbreaker combination for the pin at 3:21.

    We look back at the end of last week's show with Asuka and Nikki Cross being left laying. Next week: Last Woman Standing.

    Sonya Deville video.

    Rachel Evers vs. Sonya Deville

    Sonya wastes no time and clotheslines Rachel down for a knee to the back. Another knee to the ribs sets up some kicks in the corner, followed by a quick bodyscissors. The fans get behind Rachel and her right hands but Sonya takes off the glove and pounds away at the ribs. A Kimura makes Rachel tap at 2:42. Another total squash though couldn't the finish have been something on the ribs, which were worked on all match?

    Earlier today, Roode was in a photo shoot when Strong and his family showed up. Roode said Strong's wife could be with a real man any time she liked and Strong snapped as you might expect. It's quickly broken up with Roode saying Roderick can have a title shot anytime.

    That anytime would be in two weeks on the 400th episode.

    Aleister Black vs. Kassius Ohno

    Feeling out process to start with Ohno getting a quick takedown for almost no effect. Black sits him on the top rope for about the same impact and it's back to the technical work. Ohno gets two off a rollup but gets caught in a front facelock. A hammerlock keeps Kassius in trouble but a rope grab gives us a clean break.

    The threat of Black Mass sends Ohno outside and it's the moonsault into the meditation pose. Ohno tries to kick him from there so Black nips up with a knee to the face. Kassius knocks him hard to the floor and we take a break. Back with Ohno chopping away in the corner and dropping a backsplash for two. To really make this personal, Ohno sits down like Black, who doesn't take kindly to the disrespect.

    Ohno pounds away again and asks if Black is good or evil. That's quite the perceptive question no? Somehow not crushed by the weight of that gut, Black pops up and slugs away, including a kick to the head for two. Another exchange of hard kicks gives Ohno two more as the BOTH THESE GUYS chant starts up. Since that worked so well, Black knees him in the head again for two more. A spinning bicycle kick (cool) gives Ohno two but a LOUD knee to Ohno's jaw staggers him again. Not that it matters as Ohno loads up the roaring elbow but walks into Black Mass for the pin at 16:47.

    Ember Moon b. Peyton Royce – Eclipse
    Sanity b. Ealy Brothers – Belly to back suplex/neckbreaker combination to Uriel
    Sonya Deville b. Rachel Evers – Kimura
    Aleister Black b. Kassius Ohno – Black Mass

    It's week three in India and one of the last two shows before Slammiversary. Nothing major has been announced for this week but you can almost guarantee some more build towards the World Title match, along with the epic saga of the battling announcers. This likely means more comedy from Joseph Park, who is trying his hardest to make this half joke/half possibly biggest match of the show work. Let's get to it.

    We open with a recap of Sonjay Dutt's X-Division Title win last week. Dutt is very emotional and seems so happy to have won in front of his countrymen.

    Sienna tells Laurel Van Ness to focus on Allie tonight because it's their chance for revenge.

    Opening sequence.

    Sony Six X-Division Invitational: Trevor Lee vs. Davey Richards vs. Suicide vs. Eddie Edwards vs. Braxton Sutter vs. Matt Sydal

    Elimination rules for another trophy. Eddie and Davey go straight to the floor and the other four brawl, leaving the announcers to threaten each other (Josh: “They'll delete your Twitter!” JB: “I'm worried about Steiner!”). Sydal and Suicide are left alone in the ring as there's so much going on at once. Suicide does his backwards fall onto most of his opponents and we take a break.

    Back with Sutter hitting a neckbreaker on Suicide but Lee rolls him up with a handful of tights for the elimination (Can we PLEASE find something for Sutter? He was white hot just two months ago and now he's any given X guy.). Eddie comes in and is knocked outside in a hurry, leaving Davey to kick Suicide in the head.

    The top rope double stomp misses but Lee hits the standing double stomp to get rid of Suicide, leaving us with four. All four get back inside with Davey sending Eddie into a chair wedged in the corner, which is good for a DQ. Davey loads up some chairs on the floor but gets caught in a fisherman's buster through an open chair.

    That's a DQ on Edwards (For beating up someone no longer in the match?) and we're down to two as we take another break. Back with Sydal hitting a standing moonsault for two, followed by a standing hurricanrana for the same. Trevor hits a Superman Forearm but gets dropped again, setting up the shooting star to give Sydal the pin at 19:02.

    Sydal receives a trophy.

    Josh brags about his MMA skills.

    Spud was on the street earlier today when he ran into Swoggle. A fight nearly broke out but Spud wanted a woman to film it, only to have her steal his phone. Another small guy breaks it up, leaving Spud and Swoggle confused.

    Allie is panicking because Rosemary isn't here.

    Joseph Park is worried about the Slammiversary match and even frozen pizza doesn't make him feel better. JB goes into an Animal House style speech to inspire him and things seem better. We even get a Mega Powers handshake.

    Sienna/Laurel Van Ness vs. Rosemary/Allie

    There's no Rosemary to start but here she is from underneath the ring. Allie and Sienna get things going with Allie sending her into the corner. Hang on a second though as here's KM with a kendo stick for a distraction. Braxton Sutter comes out for the save but Laurel suplexes Rosemary, allowing Sienna to hit a curb stomp for the pin at 1:48.

    Dutt had a parade with the X-Division Title.

    Clip of LAX going to an indy promotion to beat people up and take their money.

    Mahabali Shera is in the ring when Dutt comes out for a full on Indian celebration of his title win. Dutt thanks the crowd and talks about how awesome it is to be champion. This brings out Low Ki, who calls Dutt's title win luck. He wants a rematch so Dutt agrees to the match at Slammiversary but we'll make it 2/3 falls. Dutt offers a handshake but gets punched in the ribs. Shera gets beaten down as well and takes a Warrior's Way until Sydal comes out for the save.

    KM vs. Mahabali Shera

    Shera has heavily taped ribs and has to shove the doctors away to get to the ring. KM sends him into the steps before the bell as Josh is already talking about his sparring session last week. Shera can't get him up for a fireman's carry but KM misses a slingshot splash. The Sky High ends KM at 1:36.

    Kongo Kong comes out to destroy Shera, including a top rope splash on the bad ribs.

    JB and Park get serious about training, complete with a short montage.

    Here are Eli Drake and Chris Adonis to find out who Moose's partner at Slammiversary will be. They don't think he has any friends so get out here and make the announcement. Moose comes out and makes the most obvious announcement ever: his partner is DeAngelo Williams. As in the football player who was announced as having a match at Slammiversary and was brought in by Moose. But people say WWE treats its fans like idiots. Moose gets beaten down and hit with the Grand Championship.

    Josh threatens JB some more.

    E Singh 3/Lashley vs. James Storm/Alberto El Patron

    The fans chant for Singh, who tells Lashley that he'll be starting. Naturally this means tagging in Lashley to face Storm instead. James takes over with a running clothesline in the corner, followed by some standing ones for a bonus. It's off to Alberto, in a shirt, vs. Singh but Storm takes out both villains with a dive as we take a break.

    Back with El Patron in trouble until he gets over to Storm for the hot tag. A Sling Blade drops Lashley but a cheap shot knocks Storm out to the floor. Lashley hits a delayed vertical suplex and chokes Storm on the ropes as the announcers hype Spud vs. Swoggle in a street fight next week. There's a powerslam for two on James and more choking keeps him in trouble.

    Storm finally breaks free and brings in Alberto for the showdown with Lashley. A Backstabber gives Alberto two but Lashley is right back with a double powerbomb out of the corner. Two straight superkicks have Lashley in trouble and there's the cross armbreaker. That's enough for Carter, who grabs the strap and whips the referee for the DQ at 18:09.

    Alberto cleans house and poses with both titles to end the show.

    Matt Sydal b. Trevor Lee, Braxton Sutter, Eddie Edwards, Davey Richards and Suicide last eliminating Lee
    Sienna/Laurel Van Ness b. Rosemary/Allie – Curb stomp to Rosemary
    Mahabali Shera b. KM – Sky High
    Alberto El Patron/James Storm b. Lashley/E Singh 3 via DQ when Singh used the strap
