AJ and Page defeated The Bellas via submission. Paige put the PTO on Summer to make her tap after AJ knocked Cameron off the apron.
Randy Orton did a backstage interview about Seth Rollins, challenging him to a match for WrestleMania.
Daniel Bryan, Dean Ambrose, and Dolph Ziggler defeated Luke Harper, Wade Barrett and Stardust via pinfall. Ziggler slipped out of Harper’s finishing attempt late and hit Zig Zag. He tagged in Bryan who hit the running knee for the win. Post-match, Ziggler thanked Bryan for stealing the match from him. He said Bryan had luck on his side at last year’s Mania, but this time around Dolph will be in the match. Ambrose took the mic and said he knows Ziggler has some professional jealousy and maybe an inferiority complex. He said he may not agree with Ziggler on much, but that everyone thinks D-Bryan is a great guy, but backstage everyone knows the truth about Daniel Bryan, that he’s a turd.
