After the match, Alicia attacked Emma, who got away and then turned her anger to the referee and announcers.
On the way to the ring Sheamus asked him he could still compete. He said that he wouldn’t wrestle, but would fight.
Sheamus vs Cesaro
Sheamus caught Cesaro and executed ‘White Noise’. the Swiss native ducked the ‘Brogue Kick’ and went to the top rope. The ‘Celtic Warrior’ took to the third floor himself and dived out of the ring onto Cesaro. When both men got up, Cesaro threw Sheamus over the railing and into another one. Sheamus clotheslined Cesaro over the barricade into the fans and the match was declared a double count out.

Secours Wellness Arena, Greenville, South Carolina
Titus O’Neil vs Kofi Kingston
Kofi set Titus up for ‘Trouble in Paradise’. However, Titus caught him and dropped him with a backbreaker and a near fall. Unhappy with a two count, O’Neil argued with the referee. When he saw that Kofi had gotten back up, he charged at him, thus charging into ‘Trouble in Paradise’ and Kingston picked up the win.
After the match Jerry Lawler asked Kofi what it felt like to be back on the winning track. He said that you pick up the win where you can and that the WWE Superstars are the best athletes on the planet. ‘The King’ asked what it was like to put Rusev in his rear view mirror. He didn’t want to talk about Rusev and was looking for a home cooked southern meal. Kofi has become a joke. He needs killer instinct and a storyline.
Sin Cara vs Drew McIntyre
Just as the match was about to begin, Hornswoggle was psyching up the Scotsman. Cara kicked and hit Drew with a springboard crossbody for the near fall. Cara came at Drew with punches, but the 3MB member came back with a flying boot to the face.
Los Matadores and the remaining members of 3MB were battling on the inside but were drawn under the ring where El Torito and Hornswoggle had already fled to. When they all got back from underneath the ring, something that had distracted McIntyre, Sin Cara hit his opponent with an Enzuigiri and gave Drew the Senton Splash for the victory.
