8. Universal Championship: Seth Rollins (c) defeated Baron Corbin. Lacey Evans was Corbin’s special guest referee. The crowd chanted for AEW, Daniel Bryan, CM Punk, for and against John Cena, and “boring.” Rollins put Corbin through a table and tried to get him counted out, so Evans said the match was “no count-out.” Rollins had Corbin pinned with a frog splash, so Evans pretended she was too injured to count. Corbin attacked Rollins with a chair, so Evans announced the match was no disqualification. At this point, Evans just stopped counting for Rollins. Evans slapped, kicked, and low-blowed Rollins, so Becky Lynch ran down to the ring and beat up Evans. Referee John Cone took over, so Rollins hit a Stomp and won the match.
