Elias is backstage says that tonight’s performance is going to be tough because he’s not used to performing in front of a bunch of Arkansas hillbillies.
IN RING SEGMENT
Ladies and gentlemen….Elias.
Elias says that he wants everyone to remember this moment right now, because they are seeing him in his final moments before becoming the Intercontinental Champion. He says that that at Money In The Bank, Seth Rollins will find out that WWE stands for…..WALK WITH ELIAS!
Elias sings about Seth Rollins, a song that is actually pretty hilarious. He knocks Seth’s nicknames, how he does crossfit, and more. Elias finishes his masterpiece song, and then busts out a guitar that he says was given to him by John Mayer. It has artwork on it, including a picture of the Intercontinental Championship. He says that next week he will play his best song yet, but it will be with the Intercontinental Championship around his waist.
Seth Rollins runs down towards the ring. He takes Elias out and Elias goes retreating. Rollins grabs a mic, and says that Elias better stop being a coward and if he wants to fight, he is in the same place where he always is, which is in the center of this ring ready to fight. He says he wants to like Elias, he has a lot of really cool things going, including his guitars…..but not this guitar. Seth walks towards Elias’ personalized guitar. Seth teases auctioning off the guitar. Instead, Rollins curb stomps the guitar, much to distress of Elias.
Kevin Owens is backstage with Bobby Roode, who starts to talk to him about Braun Strowman again. He says that none of them could beat Braun Strowman. He says that tonight they should all work together, or he can go at it alone, and end up like the ladder last week that Braun snapped in half.
RUBY RIOTT (w/ LIV MORGAN & SARAH LOGAN) vs. BAYLEY
Morgan & Logan distract Bayley to start the match, giving Riott enough time to hit Bayley with a couple of kicks. Riott puts Bayley in the corner and hits Bayley with a series of forearms. She charges at Bayley, but is met with two feet, pushing Riott to the mat. Bayley hits Riott with a Lou Thesz press, and then hits Riott with right hands.
Bayley starts to take Riott and slam her into each turnbuckle before climbing up to the second rope and hitting a flying elbow. Riott goes to the outside and Bayley follows and hits Riott with a side suplex to the outside.
Back inside, Bayley hits a low dropkick to the knee of Riott. Riott gets up in the corner, and Bayley charges, only to be caught by Riott, who takes her legs and stuffs Bayley’s face in the middle turnbuckle. Bayley in on the ground and now Ruby Riott cinches in a wrist lock, and Bayley in in agony. Bayley fights out and rolls up Riott and gets a near fall, but Riott kicks out. Bayley gets up and Morgan gets on the apron to distract the referee, and Sarah Logan gets on the opposite apron to distract Bayley long enough for Ruby Riott to throw Bayley into the ring post. Riott picks up Bayley and hits the Riott Kick to seal the victory.
Winner: Ruby Riott
