Kevin Owens makes the decision to jump Andrade and Angel Garza before the match, getting a distinct advantage before the bell even rings. However, as the bell officially rings, the two men work together to double team Kevin Owens.
Garza goes for a cover but Andrade questions it and when Andrade tries the same they agree to not go for it. However, KO then goes for a roll-up and while Garza is ripping off his pants, he almost gets the victory. They then continues working together, isolating Owens as they pick him apart.
However, the two men then end up fighting each other as it’s clear that they cannot win and as Zelina Vega tries to stop them, she ends up taking a spill to the floor as they keep arguing. As the match returns from commercial, Kevin Owens has Garza isolated as they brawl on the second rope and KO eventually comes out on top, hitting a senton.
However, Andrade breaks up the pinning attempt. KO then takes the fight to him as well with both men eating a cannonball and a superkick each as Owens hits a frog splash to Andrade who is able to kick out. Owens then tries to hit a Pop-Up Powerbomb but only ends up eating a back elbow from Andrade.
Garza then gets back involved and takes down Owens with a dropkick which leads to Andrade and Gara breaking down with huge slaps and chops as both men spill over the top rope. Owens then returns to the action, and it ends up being him and Garza, with Angel locking in a knee submission.
Owens fights out of it though and then connects with a Stunner, however as he goes for a pin, Andrade dropkicks him away and he ends up pinning Angel Garza to win the match!

Asuka then dances into the shot as Flair asks if she ever takes anything seriously. Asuka says she does and proceeds to slap the taste out of Flair.
MVP says that the VIP Lounge is for people like his guest, Bobby Lashley, who he puts over. However, it isn’t Lashley who comes out, it is Drew McIntyre. Drew claims that Lana and Lashley were having arguments backstage but MVP tells him that Lashley will be taking the title this Sunday, using the Full Nelson.
Drew admits he’s still feeling the move from last week right now, but MVP does know about the Claymore as he’s taken so many lately. Drew then mocks MVP, asking if he’s going to teach Lashley using the knowledge from all of his 0 World Title victories.
Bobby then appears from behind, but this week Drew is ready for it and he tells Bobby that the only way he’s taking the title is from his cold dead hands. MVP then tries to jump Drew but he sees it coming and hits the Glasgow Kiss as The Viking Raiders and The Street Profits make their way down.
