Bill Pritchard

Daniel Bryan is with AJ near her locker room and she says she doesn't want to sound ungrateful, but the dress he bought her isn't really her style. He tells her to turn around and says it did look better on the mannequin, but she needs to look the part if they are going to be a championship couple. Bryan says they will be the next Elizabeth and Macho Man, and she needs to prepare for her match to earn a shot for the Divas Championship. He says her match is up next so she should go get ready, then she kisses him and leaves and he wipes his lips off and walks away.

Nikki Bella (w/ Brie Bella) vs AJ (w/ Daniel Bryan)

Nikki snapmares AJ to the mat then steps on her hair and slams her head on the mat before putting her in a rear chinlock. AJ fights out of it and hits a spinning heel kick, then she hits a knee smash in the corner. She goes up top and hits a crossbody, but Brie tries to switch places so Bryan jumps up on the apron and warns the ref. The switch doesn't work and Nikki comes back in and tries to hit a backbreaker, but AJ surprises her with a rollup for the win.

Winner – AJ
