United States Championship Match: Shinsuke Nakamura defeated Jeff Hardy (c). Nakamura hit a low blow on Hardy behind the referee’s back before the bell. As soon as the bell rang, Nakamura hit a Kinshasa to win the match and the United States Championship. After the match, Randy Orton came to the ring, stomped Jeff Hardy in the dick, and left.
Steel Cage Match: Kevin Owens defeated Braun Strowman. Strowman chokeslammed Owens from the top of the cage through a table to the floor, causing Owens to technically win the match. Owens was taken away on a stretcher.
Smackdown Tag Team Championship Match: The Bludgeon Brothers (c) defeated Team Hell No. Bryan had to wrestle most of the match 2-on-1 due to the pre-match attack. Kane eventually showed up in a cast to help, but the Bludgeons were able to pin Bryan with a clothesline/powerbomb combo.
Bobby Lashley defeated Roman Reigns. Lashley won the match with a spear.
