Fandango vs. Kofi Kingston
Kofi starts off strong with kicks. He leaps and hits a splash in the corner. Fandango launches Kofi to the floor and snap suplexes him. Fandango takes over in the ring and holds on to a headlock. Kofi comes back and sends Fandango into the steel post. The crowd is legitimately on fire tonight. Kofi goes on a flurry and Fandango goes out to regroup. Summer checks on him and gets in the way of Kofi. Kofi leaps off the apron anyway and tackles Fandango. Summer fakes an ankle injury and Fandango attacks Kofi from behind and sends him into the steel post. Fandango lands a beautiful top tope legdrop in the ring for the win.
Winner by pin: Fandango

- Renee Young interviews Damien Sandow in the back. She shows him footage of his briefcase in the Gulf of Mexico. He silences her and unveils a new "Sandow-ized" case.

Bray Wyatt and his rocking chair appear on the Titantron. He says Kane's fire fears him. Bray says the fire can't hurt him because he is already dead. Bray laughs diabolically and Kane sets off the ring pyro. (That Wyatt promo was very eerie. The way the rocking chair appeared on the screen at first looked to be a giant chair suspended above the ring. Bray was great as always. Nothing I could type here would do it justice. Just fantastic stuff.)
- We go to a prerecorded, produced promo from Brock Lesnar. He says Punk is a joke and that he never liked him. Lesnar says the only reason he let Punk exist all this time is because of respect for Paul Heyman. He says Punk takes beginner's MMA classes and thinks that makes him tough. Lesnar says he is the beast and the best.
