– Rey Mysterio and Aleister Black didn’t die at Money in the Bank, they fell onto a “secondary roof” and will team up tonight against Seth Rollins and Murphy.

5. R-Truth, Cedric Alexander, and Ricochet defeated MVP, Brendan Vink, and Shane Thorne. Truth also wrestled in his “Pretty Ricky” persona, which is just Truth crossing his eyes and wearing fake teeth.

– The Street Profits played basketball with the Viking Raiders. The Vikings played like they’d never seen a basketball in their lives. The Profits won 74-2. It’s a swerve, however, as it turns out the Raiders are actually good at basketball and let the Profits win. Ivar triumphantly dunked.
