After Heyman ran down Joe, the No. 1 contender came out and headed to the ring, where he stared down Lesnar.
1. Elias Samson defeated Dean Ambrose. Before the match, Elias Samson performed a song in the middle of the ring about how much he didn’t like Lafayette, Louisiana, nor did he like Dean Ambrose. The Miz came down to ringside, distracting Ambrose, allowing Samson to hit a swinging neckbreaker for the victory.
— Goldust cut another promo about how he didn’t like R-Truth anymore.
— Backstage, Kurt Angle confronted the Miz about getting involved in Dean Ambrose’s match.

Angle said that if Miz has a problem with Ambrose to do something about it himself.
— A vignette for Cedric Alexander was aired. Afterward, Alexander confronted Noam Dar and said he was done dealing with him and Alicia Fox. Fox, via FaceTime, goaded Alexander into one more match against Dar.
