1. The New Day defeated The Dudley Boyz and John Cena. Xavier Woods pinned D-Von Dudley with a rollup and a handful of tights. After the match, the Dudleys put him through a table.
– Randy Orton is “missing,” having no-showed the Mexico tour. JBL’s sources say Orton’s been injured, and that he’s out of the tag team match against the Wyatt Family at Hell in a Cell.
2. Nikki Bella and Alicia Fox defeated Sasha Banks and Naomi. Bella pinned Naomi after a Rack Attack.
– Seth Rollins and Shawn Michaels had an in-ring confrontation. Rollins said he was the new improved version of Michaels, and Michaels said it’s better to be original.

4. Sheamus, King Barrett and Rusev defeated Cesaro, Neville and Dolph Ziggler. Barrett pinned Ziggler after a Brogue Kick from Sheamus. These teams will have a rematch on the Hell in a Cell kickoff show.
– Ric Flair intro’d Roman Reigns. Reigns and Bray Wyatt argued and briefly brawled about their match at Hell in a Cell. This set up the night’s main event: Reigns and Dean Ambrose vs. the Wyatt Family (with a returning Erick Rowan in place of Luke Harper) in a handicap match. Backstage, a conversation between Shawn Michaels and Triple H ended with Seth Rollins wanting to “prove himself” and be the third man for Reigns and Ambrose.
5. Charlotte defeated Brie Bella. Charlotte won by submission with the Figure-Eight.
6. Kevin Owens defeated Mark Henry. Owens won with a pop-up powerbomb. After the match, Ryback charged the ring, but Owens fled. Henry stopped him, however, and rolled him back into the ring to take a Ryback powerbomb.
7. The Wyatt Family defeated Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins. Rollins pretended to be injured and walked out on the match. Braun Strowman had Reigns in a choke, which caused Ambrose to attack Strowman with a kendo stick for a disqualification. Reigns speared Bray Wyatt and Erick Rowan to end the show.
