Magnus vs Bully Ray
Bully and Magnus tie up and fight for position, with Bully gaining control and hitting a shoulder block before following with a scoop slam. They lock up again and Magnus applies a side headlock, then Bully whips him and Magnus hits a shoulder block, but Bully stays on his feet and clotheslines him. Bully tries to chop him but Magnus hits a few uppercuts in the corner, then he backdrops Bully and clotheslines him before heading up top. Bully crotches him on the ropes and taunts the crowd as we go to a break, then we get back to see Bully whip Magnus into the corner and taunt the crowd. Bully stomps him and goes for an elbow drop but Magnus rolls away, then they trade punches before Magnus clotheslines him. Magnus hits a back suplex and a big boot, then he heads up top and hits an elbow drop for a near fall before setting up a corner clothesline.
Bully avoids it and pulls the ref in the way, then he knocks Magnus down from behind and winds his chain around his fist, preparing to hit Magnus. Sting runs out and tries to prevent it but the ref stops him, not seeing the chain so Bully low blows Magnus behind his back and wins it with a rollup. Sting tries to reason with Magnus but Magnus doesn't want to listen, then Sting asks for a handshake but Magnus pushes his hand away and leaves. Sting tries to catch up with Magnus and wants to know what's going on, but Magnus says the ref didn't see the low blow because Sting was there. Magnus says he got screwed over again and he's tired of it, and all he wants to do is prove to everyone he can do it on his own. Samoa Joe walks over and tells Sting to let him go and he'll calm down, then Sting says they will fight on Sunday and Magnus will be on his own like he wants.
Winner – Bully Ray
Kurt Angle comes out and says it's great to be back, but he wants to cut right to the chase and says Bobby Roode is talented, and reminds him of himself. Kurt says Roode made it personal now, and Kurt says he is going to win because Roode may be very good, but he will never be on his level. Roode comes out and says he's alright with that because he doesn't want to be Kurt, he may have wanted to in the past, but now he is the man around here. Roode says Kurt ruined his night last week, and he says he's more deserving of a Hall of Fame because Kurt hasn't done anything lately. He says he remembers two years ago when Kurt beat him, but he saw the light and woke up, becoming the 'It Factor' and winning the world championship. (Cont'd…)
