Butch seizes Joe’s wrist and applies a wrist lock, taking Joe down to the mat. He follows up with a stomp to Joe’s arm. Once more, they lock up, and Joe responds with his own wrist lock takedown. Joe then applies a double wrist lock and rakes Butch’s eyes while working on his arm. Butch manages to back Joe into the ropes and the corner, but Joe fights back with a forearm and knee strikes.
Joe transitions into a side headlock takedown, and then he charges through a clothesline to deliver a running shoulder tackle. Butch retaliates with a slap, executes a move called “Divorce Court,” and drops a knee on Joe’s arm before striking a Gallus pose. He goes for Joe’s fingers next and proceeds to stomp on his elbow. Butch delivers a kick to Joe’s head and performs a double stomp onto Joe’s arm from the turnbuckles. He takes Joe down to the mat and locks in a Fujiwara armbar.

He lands a round kick to Joe’s head, prompting Mark and Wolfgang to climb onto the apron, but the referee intervenes and sends them to the back.
Butch and Joe exchange punches, with Joe’s strikes staggering Butch as he retreats into the corner. Joe takes Butch down and delivers some well-placed kicks. He then ascends the turnbuckles and hits a missile dropkick for a near fall. Butch counters Joe’s Liontamer attempt with a kick to the head and transitions into a cross arm breaker, then into a triangle choke. Butch reverts to the cross arm breaker, but Joe exhibits incredible strength by lifting Butch into a one-arm buckle bomb.
Butch and Joe find themselves in a heated exchange, trading punches and forearms. Butch gains the upper hand as he mounts Joe and delivers a series of stomps to the chest.

Butch seizes the opportunity and delivers the “Bitter End” for the three-count.

He skillfully floats over in the corner and slams Joe before delivering a dropkick. Joe counters an Irish whip, but Trick blocks a kick and avoids a clothesline. Trick responds with punches and an uppercut. Joe regains control with a kick and a DDT, followed by kicks and forearms to the back of Trick’s head. Joe then applies a rear naked choke.
However, Joe misses an elbow drop, running into a boot in the corner. Trick seizes the opportunity and delivers a series of punches, followed by an uppercut and a jumping leg lariat.

Trick expresses his satisfaction with his performance and mentions that it might have been his best match yet.

Trick confidently predicts that Carmelo will retain his championship and hints that it’s time for him to pursue his own championship aspirations.
Next, McKenzie Mitchell interviews Blair Davenport.
Blair reflects on Gigi Dolin’s attempt to take her out and describes it as feeble and pathetic. She asserts that when she targets someone, they don’t stay on their feet, and even when Gigi attacked her, Blair got up, requiring officials to intervene. Blair challenges Gigi, stating that no one can match her vicious side and advises Gigi to watch her closely in their upcoming match.
Baron Corbin vs. Brooks Jensen
The match kicks off with Baron and Josh locking up, but Baron breaks the hold with a punch. Josh retaliates with a flurry of punches and follows it up with a clothesline that sends Baron tumbling over the top rope and crashing to the floor. Josh wastes no time and sends Baron into the apron and the ringside barrier. He then returns Baron to the ring and delivers a forearm strike, followed by a running boot to the head.
Baron manages to kick Josh away and targets Josh’s leg with a series of kicks. Baron then executes a powerful choke slam for a near fall. He continues to pummel Josh with punches, Irish whipping him into the ropes and following up with a splash. However, Baron misses a corner splash, allowing Josh to counter with a choke slam and a splash for a near fall of his own.
The two wrestlers exchange punches, and Josh lands a boot to Baron’s head. Baron resorts to pulling the referee between himself and Josh, taking advantage to land a punch and execute a clothesline off the turnbuckles. Baron then connects with his finishing move, the End of Days, securing the three-count for the win.
Winner: Baron Corbin
After the match, Baron takes the microphone and addresses Bron Brakker. He mentions that they will find out on Saturday whether Bron is all talk or if he can back it up. Baron confidently asserts that he’s looking into the future, and what Bron sees is his own demise, courtesy of the End of Days.
Bron Brakker makes his way to the ring and starts punching Baron. Bron executes a double-leg takedown, and then security personnel enter the ring, dressed similarly to Bron, causing confusion for Baron, who punches the security members because he can’t differentiate between them and Bron. The situation leads to commercial break.
We return to the show, and Trick Williams is seen knocking on Shawn Michaels’ door before entering.
