Jimmy & Jey Uso defeated Cody Rhodes & Goldust via pinfall in a non-title match. The close saw Jimmy deliver the huge kick to take down Cody, then he hit a top top splash for the pinfall win. Post-match, Rhodes yelled something at JBL, then walked off to leave Goldust behind.
El Torito defeated Heath Slater via pinfall. Torito gored Slater late in the match, then hit the Bull-sault off the ropes for the win.
Nikki Bella defeated Natalya via pinfall. Eva Marie was the special referee to make it three “Total Divas” in the ring. Nikki eventually won with a rollup pinfall in the finale of the match.
Dolph Ziggler defeated Batista due to disqualification. Late in the match, Ziggler sidestepped Batista and caused The Animal to hit the ring post. Moments later, Ziggler jumped on Batista in the corner to hit ten punches on him. Batista hit a low-blow on Ziggler drawing a DQ. Post-match, Batista hit the Batista Bomb on Ziggler, then left. He came back though, and took Ziggler to the floor, throwing him into the barricade and hitting another Batista Bomb with Ziggler onto the barricade.
Sheamus defeated Titus O’Neil via pinfall in a non-title match. The match lasted just seventeen seconds. Sheamus hit a quick Brogue Kick on Titus, then collected the pinfall.
Byron Saxton found Adam Rose’s party bus behind the arena and went up to ask for Adam. A girl came out asking who he was then called for Adam. Rose came out of the bus, so Saxton asked him about Swagger and Colter. Rose said he has no problem with them, they’re just square. He told Saxton to be a Rosebud before handing him a lollipop and then putting a rainbow wig on him.
Santino Marella defeated Damien Sandow. Santino had Emma at ringside. He hit a quick Cobra punch on Sandow for the pinfall win.
Cesaro defeated R-Truth via pinfall. Cesaro started attacking as the bell sounded. Truth didn’t get any offense in, with Cesaro eventually hitting an uppercut and then the Neutralizer to win it.
John Cena defeated Erick Rowan via pinfall. The Usos were ringside as was the rest of the Wyatt Family. At one point, Harper ran in, but The Usos dumped him out to the floor, then dove onto him. In the ring, Rowan had a near fall on Cena. He went for another move, with Cena escaping it and hitting the Attitude Adjustment for the win. Post-match, The Usos were able to help hold off Bray Wyatt from making an attack on Cena.
