Pre-Show Match: The OC (Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson) b. The Viking Raiders (Erik & Ivar) when Gallows pinned Ivar after a Magic Killer – Anderson dodged a moonsault from Ivar, which allowed him to tag in Gallows. A Magic Killer later, and The OC got the win.
The Undertaker won the Tuwaiq Trophy Gauntlet Match – Yes, you read that correctly. The Undertaker was a surprise entrant in this match. Originally, Rusev was going to compete in the match but was replaced by Rey Mysterio.
- R-Truth p. Lashley with a roll-up
- R-Truth p. Andrade after a botched headbutt
- R-Truth d. Erick Rowan by DQ when Rowan smashed him into the stairs
- AJ Style s. R-Truth with a Calf-Crusher
Mysterio got attacked by Gallows and Anderson backstage, so Styles declared he should win by forfeit. During the ref’s 10-count, Gallows and Anderson were shown getting laid out backstage. The Undertaker then made his way to the ring and pinned AJ with a single chokeslam.
The Miz & John Morrison b. Smackdown Tag Champions The New Day (Kofi Kingston & Big E) when Miz pinned Kingston with a roll-up to win the titles – Kingston looked to have the match won when Morrison clobbered him in the gut with a chair. Miz then used the most devastating move in sports-entertainment history, the roll-up, to steal the pin and the titles.
Angel Garza p. Humberto Carillo with a roll-up – If you thought there would be a cheap win, you’d be wrong. The two exchanged a duel of the most devastating move in the history of sports-entertainment, the roll-up, with Garza coming out on top.
Raw Tag Team Champions Seth Rollins & Murphy b. The Street Profits (Angelo Dawkins & Montez Ford) when Murphy pinned Dawkins after a Curbstomp to retain the titles – Dawkins was hit with Murphy’s knee-strike before taking the Curbstomp from Rollins.
Mansoor p. Dolph Ziggler with a moonsault – Robert Roode tried to interfere but got knocked out of the ring. The referee sent Roode to the back, and Mansoor rallied to win the match.
After the match, Mansoor cut a promo to the crowd in a feel-good moment for the hometown hero.
WWE Champion Brock Lesnar p. Ricochet with an F-5 to retain the title – Lesnar hit three German Suplexes before finishing off Ricochet with the F-5. Basically a squash match.
Roman Reigns p. King Corbin with a Superman Punch in a Steel Cage Match – Corbin wrapped a chain around his fist and tried to beat Reigns with his own finisher, the Superman Punch. Reigns escaped and hit his own Punch with the chain to score the pin. Corbin stayed knocked out in the ring until after Reigns walked to the back.
Smackdown Womens Champion Bayley p. Naomi with a Facebuster to retain the title – Both women wore baggy clothing that covered their whole bodies. Bayley used this to her advantage and tied up Naomi in her own outfit. She then hit the facebuster to get the pin.
Goldberg p. WWE Universal Champion “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt with a Jackhammer to win the title – This match was only slightly longer than the Lesnar squash of Ricochet. Goldberg hit three Spears, which Wyatt kicked out of. Goldberg then finished off Wyatt with the Jackhammer.
After the match, The Fiend got to his feet and leered at Goldberg. The lights went out, and when they came back on The Fiend was gone
