- AJ Lee tells the Divas in the back, Layla, Alicia Fox, and Aksana, that she would rather defend the title against any of them instead of the Total Divas. They all talk amongst themselves.
- Back from a break to footage of Dean Ambrose attack on Dolph Ziggler from Monday. Cole wonders if Dean was told to by Triple H. (No Cole, The Shield are outlaws. SMH, They are ruining a great gimmick.)
Ryback vs. Dolph Ziggler
Dean Ambrose appears out of nowhere to join commentary. Cole hops up from his chair and Ambrose talks him down and tells him to relax. Ryback goes to work on dominating Ziggler. Ambrose says The Shield does what is good for business. Ziggler hits the Fame-asser for 2. Ryback knocks Ziggler to the floor and goes to tackle him but Ziggler moves and Ryback crashes into the steel steps. Ziggler charges at Ambrose who runs. Ryback is waiting with a Meat Hook that takes Ziggler's head off. Ryback sends Ziggler back in and hits Shell Shocked for the win.
Winner by pin: Ryback
Ambrose hops over the barricade and shakes his head like he is disappointed in Ziggler or something.
Kofi Kingston vs. Curtis Axel
Heyman is noticeably unshaven as he looks on from the floor. Curtis Axel gets cheers from the hometown crowd. Axel and Kofi exchange holds as they jockey for position. Kofi hits a dropkick and Axel goes out and puts his head in Heyman's shoulder for advice. Kofi stays in control in the ring with fast offense. Axel goes out to regroup again; they mix it up on the floor. Heyman distracts Kofi and Axel hits a low-blow on the apron as we go to commercial.
Back to action in the ring as Kofi is back in control. We get dueling Axel and Kofi chants. Axel cuts Kofi off with a lariat and takes back over. The crowd calls for the Perfect Plex. Kofi creates space and comes back with a flurry. Kofi leaps and Axel catches him with a dropkick in mid-air. (Wow.) Kofi hits SOS out of nowhere for the win.
Winner by pin: Kofi Kingston
The crowd erupts as Paul Heyman drops the Intercontinental Title at ringside and the look on his face is priceless; as always.
- We go to a promo from Bray Wyatt about Icarus and Kane.
- Renee Young stops Heyman in the back and asks what if Punk beats Axel the way he got beaten tonight? Heyman says tonight was his mistake but if Punk got a hold of him, he would break him limb from limb. He says his worst is worse than Punk's worst. Young presses him about getting the beating of his life. Heyman slams a door and leaves in a rage.
Brie Bella vs. Naomi
Nikki and Cameron are at ringside. The action spills to the floor after some back and forth. AJ and the rest of the Divas do a run-in. They beat down The Bellas and The Funkadactyls. AJ grabs a mic and announces herself as the WWE Divas champion. (AJ needs some more-sinister music. Maybe it could change in the middle like Doink's used to. It would fit with her unstable character. But that happy poppy dance song needs to go. It takes you out of the moment when she does something sinister.)
- A Los Matadores vignette runs.
- The Real Americans are in the ring. Zeb Colter has everybody do the "We the People." The Usos make their entrance.
