Damage CTRL vs. Bianca Belair, Shotzi, Charlotte Flair, & Becky Lynch (WarGames)

Becky Lynch and Bayley start things out for their teams as they go back and forth to take advantage early on. While Lynch starts well, Bayley turns things around by launching her into the cage repeatedly which is followed by a suplex in the middle section of the rings onto the steel. Lynch fights back and locks in the Dis-Arm-Her, but Dakota Kai appears at ringside with a kendo stick to break that.

Shotzi then enters the match, and she brings in a trash can and several chairs. She connects with a crossbody to Bayley and then sets a chair in the middle of the ring as she runs and leaps it into Bayley as she lays on the second rope. However, as Shotz tries to suicide dive through both rings, Bayley catches her with a cutter. However, Lynch then unloads on her with a kendo stick as Shotzi gets a chair, forcing Bayley to scale the cage to avoid them, but the babyfaces give chase and send her back down. 

IYO SKY enters with a steel chain which she uses on her opponents before wrapping it around Shotzi to throw her across the ring. She then jumps the ropes into a missile dropkick, taking down both women. She works with Bayley to hit a double superplex on Lynch. Bianca Belair hits the ring next and starts unloading on her opponents with her hair as a weapon as she then drops SKY face-first onto a trash can. She blocks Bayley's attempt at using a chair with her hair and follows it with with a spinebuster. Lynch and Shotzi both drop from the top turnbuckle on their opponents to maintain control as Kairi Sane enters with a trash can lid which allows her to take out everyone else.

Sane then gets launched by SKY to nail an Elbow Drop onto Shotzi – who is covered in chairs. Charlotte Flair enters and cleans house, launching SKY into Bayley before dropping Sane with a series of chops. She then hits a double-blockbuster to Bayley and Sane, but she then stares down with Lynch which allows SKY and Sane to begin fighting them. SKY scalres to the top of the cage as she drops a chain to Kai who hooks up a trash can for her which she puts on her head and dives into everyone below.

Asuka enters and gives all of her partners a kendo stick while bringing in a table, and the match officially begins! They tee off on the opposition as Shotzi then gets misted while Lynch is hit with a missile dropkick as Lynch is inside a trash can. Lynch and Belair work together to hit stereo powerbombs and Flair then goes to the top of the cage and nails a moonsault on the crowd below! Flair and Lynch then work together with several double teams and they hug it out!

Both women then lock in their submission finishers but Bayley breaks one up with an Elbow Drop. Sane tries the same but Lynch catches her with a Dis-Arm-Her only to be nailed with a knee strike from Bayley. Belair picks up Asuka as Shotzi delivers a missile dropkick, but Bayley breaks it up. She hits a Rose Plant to Lynch but is then hit with Sliced Bread by Shotzi. Asuka tries to mist her but Shotzi avoids as Belair sprays her with a fire extinguisher. 

Sane nails a huge strike with a trash can lid to Shotzi, but she then eats a big boot from Flair. She aims for a Spear but Bayley takes the bullet. Belair hits the KOD on Bayley and then she's planted through a table with a Manhandle Slam. 

Winners: Team Belair

GUNTHER (c) vs. The Miz

The Miz starts out avoiding GUNTHER's chop only to deliver one of his own, which angers the Intercontinental Champion. Miz then looks for a kick but gets caught as the Imperium star drops Miz with just one chop. Despite that, Miz fires back with a few chops of his own as he then beats down GUNTHER in the corner as he then slaps him in the face. Miz runs away, but catches GUNTHER in the ropes and begins attacking the leg, wrapping it around the ring post.

However, as Miz tries to jump down onto GUNTHER from the top rope he gets caught in mid-ar with a big boot as he then begins delivering major chops to The Miz. The "A-Lister" once again tries to deliver more chops, but they don't have the same impact as one from GUNTHER. The champion delivers a German suplex, but the challenger once again attacks the knee and then avoids a big chop so he can continue that assault, dropping it down onto the second rope. 

Miz begins delivering his classic It Kicks, taking the fight to GUNTHER in the corner of the ring which is followed by a tilt-a-whirl DDT, which gets him a nearfall. He tries for a Skull Crushing Finale, but GUNTHER reverses with a shotgun dropkick and then a Powerbomb, but The Miz manages to kick out. GUNTHER looks for a sleeper hold,but Miz goes to the corner and exposes the turnbuckle. 

With the official not looking, he delivers two low blows and a Skull Crushing Finale, but GUNTHER kicks out! GUNTHER then locks in the sleeper hold but Miz sends him into the exposed turnbuckle and goes for a roll-up, but it's not enough. They then go back and forth until the champion connects with a big clothesline. GUNTHER heads to the top turnbuckle and nails a splash, following it up with a Boston Crab and Miz submits.

Winner (and still Intercontinental Champion): GUNTHER

Dragon Lee vs. Santos Escobar

Santos Escobar gets the jump early on in this match, attacking Dragon Lee straight away, dropping the masked man back-first down onto his knee. He hangs Lee into the tree of woe before connecting with a dropkick, adding further damage. Escobar then takes things outside of the ring as he tries to do the same thing he did to Rey Mysterio with the steel stairs, but Lee gets out of it and hits a superkick from the ring apron. 

Lee then launches himself over the top rope to wipe out the former LWO star, following it with a running knee inside the ring, gaining a near fall. Lee heads to the top turnbuckle, but he gets caught with a kick to the face. Escobar connects with a hurricanrana, but that only gets him a near fall. Escobar then tries to rip the mask off Lee's face, following it up by stomping away at him. 

However, as they brawl to the top turnbuckle Lee fights Escobar down so he can hit a stomp from the top turnbuckle, but he then runs into a huge superkick. The two go back and forth once again with Lee coming out on top with a sit-out powerbomb, but Escobar kicks out of the pinfall attempt. Escobar follows up with a destroyer, and he immediately then hits a Phantom Driver for the win. 

Winner: Santos Escobar

Rhea Ripley (c) vs. Zoey Stark (WWE Women's World Championship Match)

Zoey Stark slaps Rhea Ripley immediately, and that leads to the two of them brawling inside the ring straight away until the challenger hits a dropkick to send the champion outside of the ring. Stark follows that by diving down onto Ripley from the top turnbuckle and then a missile dropkick as she continues her hot start. She then tries to launch into the ring, but Ripley nails a headbutt which instantly stops Stark in her tracks. 

Despite that, Stark connects with a DDT on the ring apron as she then hits a corkscrew senton, which leads the champion to run out of the ring. Stark then misses with a diving knee and Ripley throws her into the ring apron and then the ring post. Inside the ring, Ripley continues to dominate, yanking Stark's arms back to then drive her face-first into the mat several times. 

Ripley places Stark onto the top turnbuckle as the two women then brawl to gain an advantage as Ripley launches Stark off the top. However, she responds with a superkick which gets her a near fall. Stark then misses with a kick, but gets a roll-up which the champion kicks out from as she follows with a big kick of her own. Ripley then slams Stark down to the mat and hits a Northern Light's Suplex, but it's not enough to gain her the win.

Stark demands more from Ripley and she then counters with a German suplex. She tries for Z-360, but Ripley counters it, hits a headbutt, and then the Riptide. 

Winner: Rhea Ripley

Cody Rhodes, Jey Uso, Seth Rollins, Sami Zayn, & Randy Orton vs. The Judgment Day & Drew McIntyre (WarGames)

Seth Rollins starts things off with a suicide dive to Finn Balor as the two men then brawl, with Randy Orton yet to appear in any form. Balor tries to run toward Rollins in the corner but eats a superkick, but he reverses a Pedigree attempt with a backdrop onto the steel in between the rings.

Rollins works with Uso to hit double superkicks to swing the momentum. Drew McIntyre then tries to enter next, but Damian Prest stops him and heads into the ring himself as he brawls with his opponents, taking advantage with a baton. 

The Judgment Day continues to take control, using the weapons to their advantage, but Sami Zayn then enters the situation. He slams the door into Balor and uses the kendo stick on McDonagh as he then pulls out a table to introduce himself. He then uses a steel pipe to attack his rivals as they slow the pace down, but Drew McIntyre then enters the match and dumps Rollins to the mat, and throws Zayn across the ring. 

Uso and McIntyre then go back and forth, but the Scotsman wins out with a neckbreaker. Mcintyre looks for a Claymore but instead, he eats a superkick and then a 1D from Uso and Zayn, as Cody Rhodes then joins the match. He immediately takes the fight to Priest and McDonagh, with Balor then getting dropped onto McDonagh. Rhodes pulls out a bull rope, but Rollins grabs it and they tease a fallout, but instead, they work together with the weapon on McDonagh and Balor. 

Dominik Mysterio then enters, attacking each member of the opposing team in order. He tries the three amigos on Rhodes, but then all of his opponents surround him and beat him down. Despite that, The Judgment Day takes control as McIntyre and Priest Chokeslam three men at once. The other members then go to the top rope and hit high-flying moves to add further damage. Rollins then gets sent through a table via a Razor's Edge. 

Orton is then supposed to appear, but instead, Ripley comes out with the Money In The Bank briefcase...but before the cash in Priest begins hearing Voices, Orton's here! Orton drops Mysterio with several clotheslines and a scoop slam as he drops Balor with the draped DDT. He and McIntyre then stare each other down, but Priest jumps the "Viper" from behind and they stomp down on the veteran. 

All the members then brawl as he encourages his teammates as they all hit draped DDTs. However, Orton then lets Uso know he hasn't forgotten what he did. But as they argue, Uso saves him with a superkick to Priest and he follows it with an RKO to Mysterio. A Stomp, a Splash, and a Helluva Kick are all connected with as well. McDonagh attempts to run away up the cage, but Rollins and Zayn follow him.
