Backstage Kane and Daniel Bryan are still arguing. Kane calls Bryan crazy, and Bryan responds by saying that Kane wears a mask 365 days a year. Kane tells Bryan he looks like a goat, and starts singing Old MacDonald. Kane says he's the tag team champions, and leaves Bryan standing in the locker room alone. 

Antonio Cesaro makes his way out to the ring, and says a bunch of stuff in his native language that nobody can understand. At one point I'm pretty sure he says "United States Champion" and his name. 

(4) United States Championship Match
Antonio Cesaro (c) vs. Justin Gabriel 

Gabriel gets caught in a wrist lock, but he backflips out of it and gets caught with a shoulder tackle to the gut. Gabriel ducks under a clothesline and jumps to the top rope, but Cesaro throws him to the floor. The Champion goes on the hunt to the outside, sending Gabriel crashing head-first into the apron. He rolls his fallen opponent back into the ring and keeps picking away with stiff elbow throws. Cesaro plants Gabriel on the top rope and hits a running knee lift in the corner. He quickly jumps up the first rope, and sends Gabriel crashing with a back body throw right down to the mat. Gabriel has yet to build any sort of momentum, as the Champion goes right back into a armbar. 

Cesaro tries for a German suplex, but Gabriel flips out of it and lands on his feet. Gabriel lands a moonsault off the second rope – shades of Chris Jericho, as mentioned by JR – but the Champion kicks out at two. The momentum is short-lived, as Cesaro turns him inside-out with a clothesline. Cesaro goes for the pin, but Gabriel rolls it through into his own pinning combination. The Champ kicks out but then gets caught by a flipping reverse DDT (I don't know what to call it; AJ Styles does it off the top rope). Cesaro rolls to the outside and Gabriel comes off the top rope, but gets caught with a devestating upercut! The Champ rolls his opponent back into the ring and hits the Neutralizer for the three-count. 

Winner via Pinfall: Antonio Cesaro

Paul Heyman is backstage again with Vickie Guerrero. He goes on and on about how Vickie cancelled tonight's match and how it was sucha  great move. Vickie cuts him off and says the match is still on. Heyman looks frustrated, as he obviously doesn't want tonight's match to take place, and walks off.
