Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler are backstage prepping for their match. Nia says she knows they don’t like each other, but she also knows they can win the tag team titles tonight if they work together. Shayna tells her to stay out of her way, and they go back to silently training.
King Baron Corbin vs. Matt Riddle
Corbin attacks before the bell, trapping Riddle in his shirt and mobbing him with body blows. Corbin takes him to the corner and drills him with a dozen stiff knees, blasting his head into the turnbuckle over and over again. He slaps on a side headlock, but breaks it to keep throwing knees and heavy strikes.
Riddle fires up out of nowhere with a flurry of strikes and body kicks. He ducks a clothesline and locks in a sleeper hold, and the “King” begins to fade, before falling backwards to break it up. Riddle shakes it off and goes right back to the sleeper, but Corbin slowly pushes to his feet and hurls his opponent across the ring.
Corbin stomps on Riddle and applies a chicken wing, slowing things way down for a few minutes. Bro rallies back and they roll outside, trading shots. Riddle hits two running clotheslines in the corner. Running Broton, and a Penalty Kick gets him a two-count.
Riddle signals for the B2S, but runs right into Deep Six. Another close two-count. Corbin rains down (reigns down?) with nasty elbow strikes, and Riddle catches him with an arm triangle. He breaks the hold and instead hits the Bro 2 Sleep, and wastes no time climbing to the top rope. FLOWING BRO! 1… 2… 3.
Winner: Matt Riddle
After a short break, Riddle is shown walking through Gorilla to the backstage area. Corbin comes through the curtain and blindsides him, throwing punches until officials are able to separate them.
