4. Smackdown Women’s Championship Match: Bayley (c) defeated Ember Moon. Bayley retained the championship with a Bayley-to-Belly suplex from the top rope.
5. Kevin Owens defeated Shane McMahon. Owens’ WWE career was on the line in the match. McMahon made Elias a special enforcer, and Elias interfered throughout the match.

As the ref was removing the chair, Owens kicked McMahon in the groin, then hit a Stunner to win the match.
6. Charlotte Flair defeated Trish Stratus by submission with the Figure Eight. After the match, the crowd gave Stratus a standing ovation and she took a bow. Watch that here.
7. Kofi Kingston vs. Randy Orton ended in a double count-out. Orton hit an RKO on Kingston, who rolled out of the ring. Orton followed him out and taunted Kingston’s family. Kofi came alive and attacked Orton with a kendo stick, but the referee counted them both out and rang the bell. The crowd chanted, “bullshit.”
8. ‘The Fiend’ Bray Wyatt defeated Finn Bálor. Wyatt has an incredible new entrance, which you can watch here. He was able to counter Coup de Grace with a Mandible Claw to win the match.
9. Universal Championship Match: Seth Rollins defeated Brock Lesnar (c). Rollins countered an F-5, hit a superkick, and connected with The Stomp — the third of the match — to win the match and the Universal Championship.
