Cole scales to the top turnbuckle but Tommaso goes to join him as they continue to fight and it is Cole who comes out best, sliding through and kicking the leg of Ciampa, which makes him bounce off.
When the match returns from another break, Balor is in control, nailing each man with chops but as he tries to Irish whip Ciampa, he collapses due to his injured knee. Balor then targets that with the single leg crab but he is able to get out, only to be nailed with a sling blade and the dropkick into the corner.
Balor goes up to the top and aims for the Coup De Grace but Ciampa rolls away and Finn ends up being nailed by stereo superkicks from Gargano and Cole.
