Chad Gable delivered an arm drag to Cesaro. Chad Gable tagged in Daniel Bryan. Daniel Bryan backflipped off the top tope and delivered the running clothesline.

For the most part, the heels took control of Bryan, making the fans wait for the babyface hot tag. Bryan delivered a Missile Dropkick to Corbin and tagged in Otis while Corbin tagged in Cesaro. Otis delivered a Big Splash in the corner to Cesaro and tagged in Chad Gable. Cesaro delivered a Powerbomb combo move with Nakamura for the pin on Gable, but Otis broke it up.

Chad Gable delivered a Rolling German Suplex to Cesaro but did not go for the cover. Sami Zayn ran in to tag Cesaro and capitalize on the weakened Gable.
