Kurt Angle vs AJ Styles

AJ hits a dropkick as the bell rings, then he sends Kurt outside and hits a flying crossbody as we go to a commercial break. We get back to see Kurt take AJ down with a snapmare, then he applies a grounded headlock as Claire Lynch is cheering AJ on in the crowd. AJ breaks it and tries to whip Kurt into the corner, but Kurt reverses it and misses a corner clothesline. He turns around and hits a tilt-a-whirl backbreaker, then Kurt applies another headlock but AJ chops his way out. AJ and Kurt collide in the middle of the ring, then they get up and AJ nails Kurt with some clotheslines and a fireman's carry backbreaker. AJ goes for a springboard forearm shot but Kurt ducks it, then Kurt hits three German suplexes and calls for an Angle Slam. Kurt lifts him up but AJ floats over and surprises him with a Pele kick for two, then AJ gets frustrated over the close count and calls for a Styles Clash.

Kurt backdrops him to counter, then he hits an Angle Slam but AJ kicks out, and Kurt takes his straps down and tries to apply an ankle lock. AJ kicks him away and hits a German suplex, then he goes for another but Kurt rolls through and puts him in the ankle lock. AJ rolls through and shoves Kurt into the corner, then he hits a flying forearm shot and a Styles Clash but Kurt narrowly kicks out and AJ can't believe it. AJ heads to the top turnbuckle but Kurt runs up and hits a belly-to-belly suplex for two, then Kurt crawls towards the opposite corner and goes up top. Kurt goes for a moonsault but AJ rolls away, then he goes for a springboard splash but Kurt gets his knees up and hits and Angle Slam for the win.

Winner – Kurt Angle

Aces and Eights deliver another video message, and they say everyone who got their cards so far know what they're about, and there's more to come. The leader says they won't have to wait very long to see who's next, and he says someone will get a message before the night is over. Ken Anderson walks up to James Storm and says he saw what they said, and the word on the street is that they are Storm's friends. Storm listens and Anderson tells him he better not be the next victim, or he and Storm are going to have words again, but they won't be friendly ones.
