After the match, the man in the hood entered the ring and removed his hoodie, revealing himself to be Luke Harper, joining forces once again with Bray Wyatt. The pair celebrated in the ring together.

Match 4

Sasha Banks vs Charlotte vs Brie Bella

Charlotte won the match via submission after Brie Bella tapped out to the Figure-Eight. Brie had thrown Sasha out of the ring a few seconds earlier. This was the best Divas match that has been on a WWE card for quite some time, but it is nothing compared to what has been on NXT recently. The NXT girls are outstanding in the ring, add Paige, Naomi and Natalya to the mix in the future and things are looking great for the Divas division.

John Cena (c) vs Kevin Owens

John Cena retained the championship via submission after Kevin Owens tapped out to the STF. This was another high quality match between these two, lots of near falls and plenty hof highly entertaining spots.

In The Ring: The Miz cuts a promo about his postponed Intercontinental Championship match, throwing doubt over the legitimacy of Ryback’s injury and calling out Big Show’s recent performances. He says that Big Show has been ‘Missing Since The Attitude Era’ and that he should do what the WWE Universe wants and ‘Retire’ Suddenly, Big Shows music hit abd the Giant comes to ringside. The Miz changes his attitude towards show rather quickly and offers to re-unite ShoMiz. Big Show says nothing and knocks Miz out cold with the KO Punch, then leaves.
